Some Cats are Gods (An Atheist Confesses)

Ipreviously pointed out that, if atheism means denying the existence of any being that is believed by some humans to be divine, then the existence of cats disproves atheism. Hemant Mehta seems to have seen the light, since he posted the image below under a title acknowledging that “some cats are gods”: [Read more…]

Egyptian God Solves the Euthyphro Dilemma

When Andy Snyder set about making this video explaining the Euthyphro dilemma, I’m pretty sure he didn’t expect an ancient Egyptian deity to appear from above to settle the matter. But that is precisely what happens in this short video. HT Madeleine Flannagan. [Read more…]

Occupy the Nativity (Feline Edition)

Via Hemant Mehta I learned that cats have occupied creches in Brooklyn. They also seem to have removed Jesus in order to make room for themselves! If refrains of “Put Christ Back In Christmas” were ever appropriate, this might be it. And given that cats are atheists (except for the ones who hold ancient Egyptian [Read More…]

In looking for songs to sing, I have recently listened more closely to Samuel Barber’s Hermit Songs than I ever had previously. Below are two of them that I particularly like, with the lyrics.
