Skepsos's skepsis

Coming back from a slumber

Posted in News, Skepsos by skepsos on January 26, 2017

In these times, of ‘alternative facts’, we must stand up and spread the truth as much as possible. So I decided to revive this blog. This site used to be just a way for me to gather my own personal thoughts and pull out some atheist jokes, but the stakes are higher now. With a United States president that is prohibiting scientists from their work, my first action will be to inform:

Government accounts that are on gag order went rogue. They are now posting their factual, scientific tweets under new, non government controlled names, promising to tweet real facts and climate change news. Follow them on Twitter:

Alternative NIH – @Alt_NIH https://twitter.com/Alt_NIH
Alt HHS – @AltHHS https://twitter.com/AltHHS
Alternative CDC – @Alt_CDC https://twitter.com/Alt_CDC
AltUSForestService – @AltForestServ https://twitter.com/AltForestServ
AltFDA – @alt_fda https://twitter.com/alt_fda
altEPA – @altUSEPA https://twitter.com/altUSEPA
AltUSDA – @altusda https://twitter.com/AltUSDA
AltUSNatParkService – @AltNatParkSer https://twitter.com/AltUSNatParkService
Rogue NASA – @RogueNASA https://twitter.com/RogueNASA

The movement on Twitter first began when the National Park Service was forced to shut down its Twitter activity temporarily after retweeting two tweets — one about the attendance of Trump’s inauguration and the other about the disappearance of some pages on WhiteHouse.gov. This week, the Trump administration instituted a temporary media blackout at the EPA. Also, the Badlands National Park in South Dakota tweeted out multiple facts about climate change. These tweets were later deleted.

It’s hard to keep up with the pace of accounts sprouting up on Twitter, but as of writing there are now unofficial accounts for the Forest Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Centers for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, and Department of Agriculture.

Such a waste

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on July 28, 2010

I’m sure the number of trees that were cut down to make those silly crucifixes, is enough to generate oxygen for our entire planet for at least a hundred years.

I swear

It’s time to replace the expressions “bunch of faggots” and “that’s so gay”
into
“bunch of Christians” and “that’s so fucking theist!”

Really. It’s very odd to use the word ‘gay’ as a swearword. Gay is something that just simply exists, there’s nothing anyone could (or should) do about it.
Just replace it with “busstation” (another thing that just simply exists…). Try it.
For example “that movie was sóooo busstation!”

Stealing goodness

By saying ‘thou shalt not steal’ god is plagiarizing our own ethics and taking the credits for it as well.

It’s not so hard to make people believe you ARE morality when you claim the obvious.

The stranger

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 12, 2010

Why would morality be given to us by an entity that isn’t human at all?

Why would morality come from a being that stands outside of Life completely?

Why would an entity like that even care?…
Obviously the idea of an allseeing god is preposterous.

Nontheist morals

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 5, 2010

I have been building up my moral conscience and ethics purely through my life’s experiences, talking to other people, forming my opinions and changing them constantly.
I wish one day everyone on this planet will be blessed with that privilage, instead of being forced into it through religion from their childhood on.

No warning needed

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 5, 2010

The environment, this planets’ endless beauties and all animals should be protected, simply because we should – I don’t feel for playing the global warming card. We should just simply stop wasting – that’s not so hard to understand is it?

I don’t need to be made scared of global warming. I just simply care.
It’s like morality: I don’t need the threat of hell to be ‘good.’

Pure myth

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 4, 2010

People who say children are ‘pure’ should be forced to work as anti-bullying agents on playgrounds and school lavatories, for a reality check.

Obvoiusly children are born without morals and with incredible selfishness. They may be ‘pure’ but their purity is not the equivalent of ‘good.’

Baby Ban

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 4, 2010

I dislike children and I think new ones shouldn’t be produced within the next 20 years – this would solve a lot of problems.

Hello nontheist world!
