I’m a skeptic and an atheist. Agnostic on a technicality, but atheist sounds more radical and sexier. It also gets me dirty looks and awkward silences. I’m sixteen now, still in high school, but due to some concurrent enrollment in the local community college I also have an Associate of Science degreePl. I hope to become a woman of science when I grow up. At the very least, I want to be a defender of reason. Richard Dawkins says I’ll leave a mark on the world someday. I interpret this to mean that I’ll either do something historical, or I will be fossilized. Either one would be really cool.

My goal is to bring a bit of light into the world. So… I guess what I have to say may be interesting.

Do whatever you want. Just wipe your feet on the mat and don’t spam. If you do, I’ll scrape it off my blog and shove it down your throat.

Feel free to write me anytime.

And… Remember…


Most of you probably have no idea who I am, which make sense since you’ve never seen me before. In a brilliant and unexpected move, the fiendish droid leader, General Greivous Elles has added me as a co-author of this blog.

A bit about me: I am a 15 year old socialist leaning liberal bisexual atheist with delusions of grandeur (and perhaps a touch of insanity). I live in Ontario, Canadia (We’re Canadians, that means we live in Canadia). I tend to make strange sounds for no particular reason, and consider ice cubes to be a delectable treat. I’m here to pass some of this strangeness on to you.

I’ve been an atheist for quite some time, I believe since the time I asked my father what the word for “a person who doesn’t believe in god” is. I attended the Ontario system of Catholic schools from kindergarten to grade 8, filling my brain with theology, bits of lint, and occasionally a useful fact or two. Maybe three. Since then I’ve managed to piece together a logic cannon capable of tearing apart even the most formidable of arguments. Unless of course the argument is actually right, but how often do you find one of those?

I’ll leave it at that for today; though I feel like I should say; I’m not very good at rhyming; and finding a rhyme for “rhyming” is rather difficult.

    Just be glad it wasn’t a chain letter. If I get a chain letter there will be a reckoning the likes of which this blog has not seen.

    Hoping you accomplish your goal, Elles! 🙂

    (Aslo hoping to join this atheist blogging myself, hopefully)

  4. Elles,
    I dig your blog. Have you heard of The Reason Driven Podcast? It’s my freethought podcast where we take a look at The Reason Driven Life by Robert Price. I heard about your blog from Reed Braden and I was wondering if you’d be interested in being interviewed on our podcast. Shoot me an email, reasondriven@gmail.com

    Your writing is excellent (and also splendid). While reading a few of your comments I noticed that you mentioned Columbine and a dinosaur movie that I consider recent as if they were ancient history. The cognitive dissonance caused me to look further and find that you are much younger than you sound.

    Anyway, keep up the good work.

  6. I pimped you out, after linking here from both Bad Astronomy and SkepChicks.

    I hope you don’t mind.

    I hope I don’t get arrested, since you’re a minor and all, and the pimping of minors is really pretty icky.

    Keep thinking critically!

    GREETINGS young ones. WElcome to the WORLD of tomorrow… TODAY.

    However riddle me this:
    If science is so great, then how come my time machine still doesn’t work after all the hours I spent sciencing it? I mean it goes forward ok but your choices of speed are pretty limited. And backwards not at all. I’ll have to bring it up at the next science wizard black mass.

    Hail Satan.

    Also despite appearances none of this is spam. It may look and smell like spam, but I’m a vegetarian. I guess spam doesn’t really count as meat anyway, though. Plus they could probably make vegan spam. God knows why they’d want to. Haha get it? God? I talked about him like he existed. Other vegan products of questionable existence I want to try besides not spam are HUFU.

    P.P.S Not spam

    You tickle my heart. Religions have simplified a complicated basic fact. Your intuition and intellect have not mislead you. All, is of the same, star dust, and the universe exchanges electrons and protons between elements regularly.

    This interaction accounts for weird coincidences and intuition (maybe). I believe a thread connects us all, an essence of divinity, or a subtle energy that is not understood.

    God became the Zeus like character at the new era. Before, women were revered. Pre-2nd century BC women were leaders and Gods were feminine or had both male and female traits.

    Today we see male sexual behavior different from female behavior. Then, pre-Rome, women were allowed the same sexual privilege. Being allowed to use their sexuality, women were able to easily control men who are controlled by their libido, (coming from a man). Yet, all the evidence points to peaceful communities. The sites studied show no fortifications or evidence of warfare.

    Nature and reproduction were esteemed back in antiquity and now evolution celebrates the same facts. It doesn’t have to be mysteries but we can still celebrate. Enjoy your lives and let me reassure you, Christianity is a political institute, corrupted by men who thought they knew better. Tons of evidence exists if you know where to look.

    Being Gay or Bisexual is not addressed by God. We are what our conscience dictates and if a God exists, you are what was intended. Biblical evidence actually refutes claims of Christians, but of course, logic will be rejected by the brainwashed.

  10. Would you please point me to some anthropologists who share your view that feminimity was dominant or equal in early religions? And elaborate upon how the sharing of electrons and protons accounts for coincidences like, possibly, intuition?

    Thank you.



  11. LAWL! Why is this moron allowed to live?!

    For coincedences check zero point or a book called “The God Theory, by Haisch, a physisist. Do you understand half lifes in radioactive elements? He made some unexplainable observations. Religion is easy. Check out Crete, Catul Huyuk. Mythology and authors such as Ian Wilson, Merlin Stone, Campbell, Graves. A Greek historian who saw Egypt as such a female dominated society he joked the men sat to pee and the women stood up.

    Ants have a complex society with numerous behaviors and different species function differently. Their egg and sperm is miniscule. How do these instincts get passed? Instincts are memories, albeit shared, but no brain exists before an egg matures so how much space is needed to inspire memory?
    Thanks for your questions.
