About Me:

Retired grumpy old man. ;)

Read and understand both sides of a story before making assertions that have no factual basis.

Merry I hope that this quote from Robert Green Ingersoll provides you with the same inspiration it does to me.

Most of those who would describe themselves as being atheists are more anti-religionists than anything else.

One question often asked both here and in face to face discussions is why the nonreligious keep on about those who believe and their beliefs.

How far should medicine be used to prolong life, when is the life being prolonged for the patient and from what point is it for those connected to the patient including doctors?

I have on a number of occasions started to explain my reasons for opposing religion but have not felt comfortable with the results.

Parent24 carried an article yesterday purporting to be a letter from a father to his son.

I was going to reply to Jeeves’ article on the FNB ads and their withdrawal but decided to write this.

Many of the theists who comment on the various articles give the impression of not understanding why many atheists or nonbelievers feel the way they do.

I describe myself as being atheist but on reflection believe that a more accurate description would be a-religious or antireligious.

There is a veritable roundabout of discussion/comment on religious topics. The same points are repeated ad nauseum with very little progress in having those who hold differing views accept or agree.
