Secular Humanism for the winSo I just got back from the Östergötland regional meeting of the Secular Humanist organization. It was a very rewarding experience... it was very enlightening, learning about the philosophy- I think I finally found a philosophy with which I identify.Secular Humanism for the win2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We were about forty or so people meeting up, and the president of the association, Christer Sturmark, (who is a minor celebrity) held a very interesting lecture on humanism, religion and society. I've never felt prouder to be an atheist; being among likeminded, intellectual people was plain uplifting. I am joining, without a doubt.
...and in other news, while the people here on DA do not seem to consider me too much of a strident, aggessive atheist, my atheist family does. Oy vey, the lack of self awareness that an Aspie must endure...
New Snowden Documents Show NSA Targeted GoogleSLATENew Snowden Documents Show NSA Targeted Google3 months ago in Personal More Like This
By Ryan Gallagher | Posted Monday, Sept. 9, 2013
The National Security Agency is keen to portray its surveillance efforts as primarily focused on detecting and preventing possible terror attacks. But a new trove of freshly leaked secret documents suggests that the agency also uses its powerful spying apparatus to infiltrate and monitor multinational companies.
On Sunday, Brazilian TV show Fantastico published previously undisclosed details based on documents obtained by Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The 13-minute news segment focused on the revelation that, according to the leaked files, the NSA apparently targeted Brazil's state-run Petrobras oil producer for surveillance—undermining a recent statement by the agency that it "does not engage in economic espionage in any domain." The Petrobras detail has been picked up internationally, and is likely to cause a serious stir in Brazil. (The country is

My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made

I. Choose up to five (5) of your favorite original story characters that will embark in this role-play. If you don't have five (5) then leave them blank (or create a character on the spot!) Be sure to give a little description of them:
1. Azure - short, mute and Irish. Jarett's lover.
2. Jarett - ifr'tal. moron. Azure's lover.
3. Maine - hedonist. wants in jarett's pants.
4. Joseph - zombie. is totally unaware of his predicament. a nice guy.
5. Æolus - scientist and beastmaster. kind of fat. hates Jarett. doesn't really love anyone except his 'daughter,' Calliope, who is either a small child or a monstrous t-rex-like beast.
II. One of your characters decides to make a grand entrance into a random tavern. How does that go? Pick either Character One or Character Four :
Oh, it has to be Azure. Joeyboy's too young xD And dead. Anyway, he'd probably already be drunk when this happens. He'd slam open the super-cool swingy doors (what) and st
Gun Problem vs Criminal ProblemI was debating with a friend. She said if she can choose what is the greater problem as far as homicides go- between "guns" or "criminals" She said that the gun is the greatest issue and that we need an assault weapons ban!!Gun Problem vs Criminal Problem7 months ago in Personal More Like This
If anyone knows me knows that I am 100% against gun bans, and other than for emotional arguments I see no logical reason behind them.
I will say why I am against gun bans, there are according to several different reports, 120-160 million gun owners in America… there are 113,000 people shot every year on average [the CDC statistics says 100K but say they take out the average 13,000 people shot with BB Guns each year..] of the remaining 100K … 18K of those are suicides… so just said that 82K people each year are shot by someone else either by accident or on purpose.
What this says is that 1 person in every 1,200-1,600 people who own guns will use the guns in an irresponsible manner, that means a tenth of 1% of people will use the guns wrong and that 99.9% of people

about the guy who designed it [bio from wikipedia] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jackson_(USA)
Steve Jackson (born c. 1953) is an American game designer. After working for many years at Metagaming Concepts designing such games as Ogre and The Fantasy Trip, he left to found Steve Jackson Games (SJ Games) in the early 1980s. He designed many of the games published by SJ Games, such as Car Wars, GURPS, Munchkin and many others.
He is not some super top secret agent or anything. I am sure the guy who made the game had insider knowledge though.
Anyone who studies history or knows how the world works could make this game. But there are a few eerie examples of events drawn on some of the cards,, like the World Trade Center being hit with an airplane, as well as the pentagon being also hit with an airplane, it looks more like a bomb.
There are cards of for in
Medicine of the Mind?I have been contemplating my own mortality increasingly lately. I have children but do I live for them alone? Perhaps that is what I should do. However, If I am so emotionally volatile that I cause harm... But wait what if things improve. I have twenty-seven years of doctors tilting at windmills. Is this juat sour grapes. Have you actually looked at therapies, outcomes, and compulsively living life? Do npt play the religion card because I am an atheist.Medicine of the Mind?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
From an unexpected place, I have a vast improvement. In the end it goes too. "So what should I do", I ask myself? Is the situation so dire; try living without hope or a small fraction of your mind barely sufficient to read and know just enough to remember having an avocation. All of the things I like most about life, the reasons I have to live; you onlyhave to adjust. Lets say i blind you, why should you be angry. When you know your hearing is going next, just knuckle down. Touch, love, perspective. What is this ludicrous obsession wit

Born in iniquity and conceived in sin, the spirit of nationalism has never ceased to bend human institutions to the service of dissension and distress.
Yeah, I guess it is much harder to sell a piece of literature than an image in some media. I am not putting visual art down, heaven forfend. But I do want to talk about the written word. I do not derive any sense of validity from Faulkner; I have an abiding love for the late drunk.

Contours in Context
The argument for the nude in art:
Our visual perception of the human face and then the human body has set the basis since the beginning of
human history for our sense of what is beautiful and what initiates all our seminal ineffable sublime feelings
about the nature of love, life, desire, destiny, eternity, ad infinitum. The curvatures and symmetries of the
human body even lay the geometric basis for the artistic structures of all our art forms, not only for the visual
arts but also for literature and architecture. Given the primacy of the body as the beginning of all that we are
in life, and given the eye as the primary receiver for the collection of all information in our lives, how could
the artistic nude not be a massively represented art form on a global arts forum like deviantART? And besides,
nudes are something peo
