This despicable human being should not be given a platform to spread his hate and misogyny. He belongs behind bars, not on a platform spreading his harmful views. Violence against women should not be ignored. https://www.change.org/p/police-scotland-home-office-prevent-pro-rape-rooshv-events-in-the-uk?recruiter=7138909&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink

BORN ANEW!
Tears, Tears, Tears
Wash away my fears
Cleanse my heart
For a fresh start
 
Rain, Rain, Rain
Drain away my pain
Beat on my stress
For a clean slate
 
Moon, Moon, Moon
Make me swoon
Under your beam
Give me steam
 
Birds, Birds, Birds
I am off to bed
Sing me a melody
No more parody
 
Sun, Sun, Sun
Come out strong
Shine on bright
My path to light
 
Flowers, Flowers, Flowers
Your scent on me showers
Nestle in your exotic fragrance
I shall find love extravagance!

My video for 'Secular Voices of Colour'. Happy Viewing!

From all evidence available, man not only created God, but did so in his own image. There are as many Gods as there are people, communities and religions. People tend to create God(s) that appeal to them and their particular situation consciously or unconsciously. There is no big deal about exercising our imagination but it becomes a big deal when you judge others base on your own particular God beliefs or tried forcing your imagination down the throat of others.

Martin Luther King, Jr. born on January 15, 1929, assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986.
Happy posthumous birthday, MLK! The dream lives on and as long as there are oppressors, your words will continue to inspire! ‪#MLKDay

For some 2015 was a year of great loss, for some it was a time of bountiful gains, while for many it was a mixture of both. Life is a twin fountain of pains and pleasures; with our pain we treasure more our pleasures.

Here is wishing you everything your heart desires this 2016, the strength to endure whatever is thrown at you and the good health to enjoy the pleasures the New Year brings. Have a wonderful year.

When a friend tagged me in an article in the Guardian titled ‘My atheism does not make me superior to believers. It's a leap of faith too” by Ijeoma Oluo, I knew from the second part of the title not to expect much and as predicted, the article turned out to be arrant nonsense. For one, it reads like a piece someone just figuring out that there is no Santa Claus, Easter bunny, Tooth Fairy or Bogey Man would write. It is quite surprising that the writer, a self-proclaimed atheist, could not differentiate between faith and knowledge. For this reason, I wouldn't take seriously anything the writer has to say about atheism, however, i would endeavour to analyse her article.

She wrote-
"I didn’t come to this conclusion because the story of a man waking from the dead made no sense – I wasn’t an overly analytical child. I still enthusiastically believed in Santa Claus and the Easter bunny. But when I searched myself for any sense of belief in a higher power, it just wasn’t there. I wanted it to be there – how comforting to have a God. But it wasn’t there, and it isn’t to this day."

This sounds creepily like a gay person wishing they were not gay. Atheism is not a feeling, it is not a sexual orientation or emotional/ sexual attraction, it is not the spooky feeling that some people insist they get that tells them a ghost is in the room.

Grrr…. You don't feel atheism; it is not the holy ghost or sexual attraction!

You know based on information and evidence available to you.
You don't need a leap of faith to know that dead people don’t come back from the dead or that humans can’t naturally walk on water. It is simple common sense backed up by easily available evidence.

Atheism is about knowledge based on available evidence. You can’t FEEL yourself into atheism, you THINK yourself into atheism!

Black people and all people of color really need this freedom from mental slavery. It is particularly sad because the religion we so much embrace as blacks, like Christianity and Islam, were all forced on our ancestors in the most appalling and cruel ways possible. If anything, these religions should make us recoil in anger and shame. Embracing these tool of oppression means we are still slaves and not anywhere near being truly free.

Let’s emancipate our self from mental slavery, let’s kick religion in its patronizing, patriarchal and imaginary ass. Let us live life fully conscious that this is the one life we have and we are responsible and accountable to our self and conscience. And not a big skydaddy. ‪#HappyBlackHistoryMonth‬!

A perfect New Year resolution would be to do away with God and all its attendant delusions. Most importantly, it would mean you no longer give a stamp of approval to all the ills, harms and atrocities perpetrated in the name of God under the umbrella of Religion as commanded in the Hoy book, be it the Bible, Quran or any other deluded book, aka the Word of God.

In recent years, we have seen how much harm and havoc God delusion can bring to humanity. It is not just about hearing old stories about how God sanctioned and even commanded slavery, genocides, plagues, jihads, stoning to death of non-virgin wives and gays, we cannot in good conscience, continue to say “Oh that was days of old”.
In recent years:
1. We have seen innocent people beheaded in the name of God to the shouts of “Allahu Akbar”.
2. We have seen children blown up in schools in the name of God.
3. We have seen young girls kidnapped and married off in the name of God.
4. We have witnessed young girls shot in the head for daring to seek an education.
5. We have seen people blowing one another up because of God‘s promised land to his ‘Chosen people’.
6. We have seen lesbians, gays, bisexuals and Trans oppressed, bullied, forced to commit suicide, thrown in jail, and even stoned to death all in the name of God and Religion.
7. We have seen women denied equal rights because the word of God says women must be submissive.
8. We have seen women denied the right to have an abortion even when the life of the mother is in danger because, well God, and soul.
9. We have seen right before our eyes, wars and suicide bombings induced by people fighting over whose God is better.
10. We have seen these atrocities, discrimination, and oppression being justified with quotes from the very book we look up to as the perfect word of God.

We have seen with our own eyes just how people who make us believe absurdities can make us commit atrocities. So, why, oh why do we still want to continue to hail a supreme being whose records of accomplishments only lead to hate, wars, genocides and sadism.

She wrote - "But my conviction that there is no God is nonetheless a leap of faith. Just as we have been unable to prove there is a God, we have also been unable to prove that there isn’t one."
What arrant nonsense! We have not been able to prove that there is no celestial teacup or invisible pink unicorn orbiting our planet, this does not stop us from dismissing that there is no celestial tea cup or invisible pink unicorn orbiting our planet.
As Pastafarians know, flying spaghetti monster is the true God because, for one, our DNA is shaped like pasta, what more prove do we need that flying spaghetti monster is indeed the true God? Yet, many simply dismiss the Flying Spaghetti Monster (May his noodlesnees be upon us, R’amen) as a joke, why, oh, why!

Why on earth would atheists try to prove there is no God? How do we prove that which does not exist? What atheists can only do is rebut the arguments of those that asserts that there is a God.

Atheism is not the assertion; Atheism is a reaction to an assertion. He who asserts holds the burden of proof. It is the theists who assert that there is a God, therefore it is left for the theists to prove the existence of their God.

Until they are able to conveniently prove this assertion that there is a God who intelligently designed the planet, or the Deists assertion that there was a God who designed the planet then went into retirement, we will keep finding holes in their bogus claim.
