Spiritual Fitness: “Chaplains are advocates for everyone”

The above image is part of that mandatory Spiritual Fitness training you (yes, you) can help us debunk! Participate in that survey to help scientists help foxhole atheists. We are still banned on post because of a single sentence in the Chaplain regulations (AR 165-1) "DFGLs will not conduct services before approval by the IMCOM or MEDCOM Command Chaplains." This means we can't even meet in some gazebo on post. Or near a dumpster. Not allowed, and we've been reminded by them several … [Read more...]

Chaplain: “Life without faith is like a tree with out roots”

How Nat Geo misrepresented the foxhole atheist ‘Doomsday Prepper’, Megan Hurwitt

Megan Hurwitt is the foxhole atheist who recently enlisted in Texas and videotaped her ceremony. She refused to say "So help me God," as is her right. She really started her military career without any shame of being an atheist - and it was inspirational. So when I tuned into National Geographic's new TV show "Doomsday Preppers" I was very surprised to see Megan in a starring role (or anyone I knew for that matter). I've kept in touch with her, but apparently not that well, LOL! Anyway, she … [Read more...]

Fort Bragg Craigslist ad: Tree climber looking for work

Craigslist seems weirder around a military town. Fort Bragg and the greater Fayetteville area have provided several hilarious weirdos. There was the man with 5 felonies demanding that we all stop being absconding interlopers. And there was the 50 foot dresser that was also specifically advertised as 'not haunted' This week's entry into my series on Craigslist is no exception. experienced Tree climber looking for work. (Fayetteville ) Looking for climbing work NO TREE TOO BIG OR TOO … [Read more...]

Fort Bragg’s ban on atheist meetings wont apply this weekend

We broke so much ground last year, and attracted national media attention. We were on the cover of the New York Times, and when the Associated Press got hold of us - we were on the cover of hundreds of newspapers. All the while, the Chaplaincy's regulations were preventing us from meeting on post. We've had to meet in people's homes, often an hours drive for some members. And we are unable to collect donations the way the other religious preferences are allowed. I spent thousands in the first … [Read more...]

Atheists at Travis Air Force Base have a meaningful community

I'm extremely comforted that the lessons learned at Fort Bragg's MASH are contagious. Once you organize, a meaningful community quickly follows. It's amazing how fast Travis Air Force Base organized into something with tangible accomplishments, like the first ever atheist holiday display on a military base - next to the Nativity Scene and Menorah. USAF Staff Sergeant Dan Rawlings was a part of the initial group at Fort Bragg's MASH. He was very enthusiastic then, but when he got to his … [Read more...]

Rapture Ready cockroaches pray that the foxhole atheist festival is cancelled

No apocalyptic doomsayer has ever been correct about doomsayings. It seems that a failed end-times prophecy should logically teach adherents a valuable lesson in gullibility (a word that emphatically is in the dictionary, but unfortunately spelled incorrectly in many dictionaries.) You've heard the saying about cockroaches surviving even a nuclear world war? Well, much like cockroaches, the rapture eschatology continues to thrive despite a few centuries of failed predictions. The word … [Read more...]
