“Blasphemy Is A Victimless Crime – Michael Nugent on Freedom From Religion Foundation, with Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor. Show aired on the 11th of May.”

Atheists cannot complain under this law, for being called “not fully human”?

…So, the law is grossly discriminatory against atheists, on top of everything else?

Richard Dawkins: Evolution…

01) Richard Dawkins: Evolution

“Richard Dawkins: Evolution is a videogame where the player explores and collects dynamically evolving life from a range of planets”

The Kickstarter failed…but, apparently, they’re still moving forward with this interesting game…Hopefully, it wont prove to be boring.

Jay North’s Tormented Childhood (Dennis The Menace)…

Date: May 11, 2017


Yes, I know…”E!, Entertainment Television documentary drama”…it’s tabloid “rag sheet” level…

I’m not sure Jay North’s life story deserves the “destroyed life” treatment it’s getting here…These companies have a flare for overdramatized distortion, after all…

I would say it sounds extremely crappy, what Jay’s aunt and uncle did to him.

I think we pretty much all have these sorts of people in our lives, when we are kids…Of course, their effect is compounded if they’re around you all the time.

I just cant imagine why it’s the kid who’s the face of a phenomenally successful television show, who’s the one being abused…Seems to me, he was the one who was a hell of a lot more successful, than the people doing the slapping, violent shaking and stern demanding.

Those people were riding his coattails…What a way to show gratitude.

Taking Issue with the Propagandists…

Date: May 10, 2017

A little follow up to the Paul Romano post from yesterday:

You can go to Paul’s YouTube channel, and survey his content for yourself.


I’m certainly not suggesting that every single video is aimed at dehumanizing and demonizing MAPs…But those sorts of hyperbolic propaganda are there.

It is my position, that this type of material objectively sets on par, with the anti-Jew propaganda from Nazi era Germany…It’s the modern day equivalent.

As such, it deserves critical and level headed response to it.

Of course…the media creator isn’t going to feel especially good about the criticism…It can be perceived as a substantial blow to their ego…Or it can deconstruct their world view…And they’re often not comfortable with that.

Thing is…Bad information, must be challenged…It must be scrutinized…Even when the majority will give it an easy pass, not judging it’s validity at all…Someone must stand up and say, “This is not correct.”…and point out what problems exist with it.

That is the spirit in which I brought Paul’s video here, yesterday.

…I just didn’t actually get around to making comments of my own, on the video itself.

Puberty – The First Kiss…

Date: May 10, 2017

01) Puberty – The First Kiss

“By the age of 11 childhood is nearly over and we’re about to change like never before, we’re on the brink of adulthood, but first comes the hormone surge of puberty. Puberty doesn’t follow a schedule, it can begin at any time, depending on our DNA clock, our lifestyle, even our diet. Whether female of male, it begins at the base of the brain in the hypothalamus, the same region that controls our body temperature.

Puberty is the process of physical changes through which a child’s body matures into an adult body capable of sexual reproduction to enable fertilisation. Puberty starts when the hypothalamus releases the protein Kisspeptin into the brain. The Kisspeptin triggers the release of other hormones throughout the body, this stimulates the sex organs to mature.

Clip from the critically acclaimed documentary “The Living Body”.”

01) How can this be Really Happening?

About eleven minutes in, is where things start getting revealing…Things go deep into “pizzagate” territory.

Probably fifteen or more years back, someone brought a link to a website [and book, I believe] to BoyChat…I wish I could revisit that post, but it is certainly not online.

They offered it to get response…likely hoping to get signs of thought “outside the echo chamber”…And I never thought ill of them for doing this…But at the same time, I could sense that the guy they were bringing attention to had something at least subtly off about him…He was offering a different perspective…Not one entirely without merit…But one that’s very skewed, from a career of working with severely abused children…In short…he was operating from a fringe, himself…And how he was going about making all these broad spanning proclamations that he just “knew from experience”, was troubling to me.

I don’t know if I ever verified any connection or not…but this Paul Romano guy, totally reminds me of the guy I was just referencing.

You know…”This is what I’ve interpreted, out of what I’ve seen”…therefor…”This is how life works”…and…”This is how you must think, and what you must conform to”…and…”Pop psychology this”…and…”Pop psychology that”…and…”Here are my spiritual, moral ideas, for good measure”…Oh! And “I’m authoritative”…And “pedophiles” and early life human sexuality get demonized, every step of the way.

There are some things here, I think warrant a response…And that’s one thing I do like about people like this…They offer a more rare, precise set of hard ideas and questions, to chew on and respond to…I don’t believe those things should be glazed over, or ignored…

…But I see that I have responded to this guy in the past…

Is Pedophilia “Dark Energy”?…

I’m not convinced you can sincerely hold a productive dialogue with people like this…

When I respond to people like this…it’s far more about pointing out the shortcomings in what they are claiming.

Apparently he believes in “Celebrity Blood Sacrifices”, as well…

I’m not going to say anything else, right now…Except that responding to people like this, is like shooting fish in a barrel…

Most people should have enough common sense, to see through what this guy is trying to sell.

…Other’s comments are welcome, of course.

Michael Nugent discussing the Stephen Fry blasphemy case with Matt Cooper on Today FM…

01) Michael Nugent discussing the Stephen Fry blasphemy case with Matt Cooper on Today FM

“Atheist Ireland’s Michael Nugent discusses the Stephen Fry Blasphemy case on Today FM’s the Last word with Matt Cooper. Programme aired on the 8th of May 2017.”

Michael Nugent discusses the Stephen Fry blasphemy investigation on Newstalk’s the Pat Kenny Show:

It is dead wrong for any state to grant the veneer of validity to outrage over “blasphemy”, by setting the force [and presumed social order] of law behind it.

Those are not laws that are doing good…Those are laws that are doing ill.
