    Divided Under God

    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…
  • New Site Feature: Progressive Atheism

    If you’ve logged on to DividedUnderGod.com recently, you may have noticed some changes to the site.  As most of you know, I recently finished writing and published my first book, Understanding an Atheist: A Practical Guide to Relating to Nonbelievers.  The book had its own website where readers could follow the progress of the book, ask questions, and ultimately preorder books or purchase signed copies.  Now that the book is finished and available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, there’s not much need for it to have its own website.  So the site was moved over to…

  • 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.
  • Today's Retailer Wants to Reinvent Your Experience

    13 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    While it seems that technology is transforming every aspect of life, how and where we shop is still fundamentally about convenience. Case in point — I am writing this blog right after ordering a new iPhone case, my son’s Halloween costume, and coffee filters all with one click on Amazon! As the retail industry convened last week at the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Western Division conference, this “era of change” was definitely put into perspective. The thoughtful remarks of ICSC Chairman and Blackstone Group Global Retail Real Estate Advisor Robert (Bob) Welanetz…
  • Celebrating National Manufacturing Day

    8 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Along with 1,600 manufacturers across North America, Fremont celebrated the third annual National Manufacturing Day last Friday. Companies hosted open houses and tours showcasing their technologies and facilities to the public. This peek inside the factory floor is helping to shift public perception of manufacturing from dirty, declining and dull — to clean, complex and cool.
  • Fremont's “BAKR” — A Place for Caterers and Food Trucks to Call Home

    6 Oct 2014 | 9:03 am
    Every caterer needs a kitchen, and every food truck needs a place to spend the night. Marry these concepts together, and you have a unique enterprise that serves two entrepreneurial audiences. “BAKR” — Bay Area Kitchen Rental was created by Kathy Hernandez in Fremont when she herself was looking for such a space.
