Aral by any other name
So, given the controversial nature of my previous post, here’s a kitten to change the mood. :) (Yes, I’m borrowing a page out of Seb Lee-Delisle’s book. Check out his free Kittens on a Conveyor Belt iPhone app.)

On rejecting the term “atheist”

I reject the term “atheist”.

Why should I define myself as the opposite of an institution as ridiculous, harmful, and primitive as religion (and its new-age euphemism, spirituality)? Should I simply, because a large group of people choose to identify with it and thus, through strength of numbers alone, lend it a grotesque legitimacy in the public sphere, even in this late day and age?

No.

We call ourselves Human. Not Abacterial. Even though bacteria are infinitely more populous than us and we would like to distinguish ourselves from them.

So, instead, I call myself rational. And those who wish to distinguish themselves from me are welcome to call themselves irrational.

Tumblr uses the password anti-pattern

Just signed up for Tumblr and the first thing it asks me for is my Gmail username and password on an insecure page (over HTTP, not HTTPs) when it could use oAuth. Not a great start to our relationship, Tumblr.

This is me in black and white… I usually come in color. I don’t cum in color; that would just be wrong and probably require a trip to A&E.
Yes, this is my first post on Tumblr and I will probably live to regret it. :)
