Color laser.

18 April 2008 | Art, Life | No Comments

I picked up a Xerox Phaser 6100 color laser printer at The Brown Elephant thrift shop today, for $25. Quite a steal. It looks to maybe need a new yellow toner cartridge, but all else is fine. Black toner has barely been used, as well. Time to get some high quality color laser paper and […]

And by Chuck D, I mean Charles Darwin. His complete writings are available free at Darwin Online. Oh, and this comic I got a good chuckle out of.

On the Northwest corner of North & Sheffield, right in front of the Bank of America ATM, someone has pasted a sticker to the traffic light post. It says “The Bible, taken literally, is a horror.” It has the website awaywithallgods.com on it. It’s apparently a book written by an atheist communist. There are excerpts on […]

This woman is not my rep.

IL state rep Monique Davis was involved in a heated exchange with Rob Sherman (outspoken atheist) in the IL General Assembly (Sherman was testifying in regards to a grant the governor awarded to a church via a school). She said: This is the Land of Lincoln where people believe in God, where people believe in […]

Godless.

2 April 2008 | Godlessness | 2 Comments

This will become an atheism oriented blog. I’ve been reading a lot of atheist books and blogs recently, and they all arouse strong feelings in me about the evils of organized religion and religious fanaticism. In my daily life and work, there’s not much I can really do about such things except speak out. This […]
