    (originally posted on blogginbluestocking.blogspot.com) Religion and government—two separate institutions that when combined are the topic of controversy and center of much debate.  Why?  Could it be because our nation lacks a state religion?  Or perhaps it’s the result of heightened discrimination against Christians in the public sphere?  Maybe overwhelming violent acts against, as well as the bullying of, God’s children are occurring more frequently in our public schools?  That’s what many Americans believe.  Atheists are portrayed as iconoclasts, out to destroy all that…

    Secretly, you may want to add a few years to the projected completion date of a complex construction project, to help account for potential delays. But this was not the case for the construction of the new 275,000-square-foot Thermo Fisher Scientific Niche Diagnostics Center of Excellence. A little over two years after project design began, a sustainable and large-scale research and development (R&D) building now stands just south of Tesla Motors.

    As many of you are aware, DividedUnderGod.com has been going strong for about 3 years.  In that time, we’ve been able to spread the word about church/state separation issues in the US, assist Margaret Doughty in her fight for American citizenship, and introduce the concept of progressive atheism to readers.  Along with the website, DividedUnderGod has a loyal following on Twitter and Facebook, and the site’s YouTube channel was launched this week. All of these things take time, and unfortunately money to produce and maintain.  In order to offset some of that, after much…

    Happy Monday! Yesterday, I led a talk at the Central New York Humanist Association meeting, entitled “How Partnership and Progressive Atheism Leads to Understanding.”  It was the first presentation related to my book, Understanding an Atheist.  The talk was recorded and is the first video to be featured on a new YouTube channel dedicated to DividedUnderGod. I plan to follow up with short video discussions of many of the articles written on this site, as well as videos related to current church/state issues and Progressive Atheism.  So please visit and subscribe!

  • If Atheists Want to Change Perceptions, They Need to Stop Acting Like This

    Today started like any other day for me.  I got up and got myself and my son ready for the day.  I took him to school and I went back home to work.  At some point in the morning, a headline caught my attention about a 22-month-old boy, Brayden King, who died by drowning in a baptismal fountain in Alabama.  I clicked on the story and read that the toddler’s mother was in church preparing for a prayer meeting and her 13-year-old daughter was put in charge of the boy.  After losing track of Brayden, she searched for him and found him unconscious in the baptismal fountain.  He…
  • My conversation about slavery with a Mormon apologetic

    Occasionally I pop onto Twitter and search for “atheist” or “atheism” to see what people are saying.  For the most part I’m looking for new people to follow who may have interesting things to say, or I’m looking for people who are looking for help in relating to atheists and offering my book as an aid.  Last night I came across a gentleman who decided it would be cool to tweet out to the world, “To Atheist; God keeps his promises, he never lies, try him.”  Now, normally I don’t seek these types of people out, but since he started out…

  • Mouse or Mallet — There are Many Career Pathways for Local Youth

    16 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    Previously we reported on National Manufacturing Day, October 3rd, which focuses on introducing high school and college age students to manufacturing careers. This is important, because even though the area has experienced a loss of manufacturing jobs this last decade, manufacturing is still a relevant element of the regional economy and a great source of middle-income wages.
