Welcome to the Philippines, a prime tourist destination — well, that’s according to our uber patriotic and proud Filipino brothers and sisters who seem oblivious of the fact that we have a lot to improve before we can consider our country as such. And honestly, I don’t think we have much to be proud of … Continue reading
I am an ordinary person. I am not rich and I may not have a Ph.D. attached to my name or any award to brag about, but I know what I’m fighting for. I am a woman and I am all for the empowerment of women, who are currently being treated as no more than … Continue reading
When I still believed in a personal “G”od, I actually thought if “H”e hated me for “blessing” me with all the bad stuff that I could possibly think of. But I was taught to accept everything that “H”e blessed me with whole-heartedly, because I was assured that “H”e had a plan especially made for me, … Continue reading
Just this afternoon, while I was walking my baby toy dog Yuki, something crossed my mind. If the condom is evil, then certainly, there must be a way to cleanse it right? So maybe, we can have ‘em blessed by sprinkling holy water on them. And just to be 100% sure, let’s use the garden … Continue reading
We don’t need a cop in the sky to know what’s right and what’s wrong and religion doesn’t hold the monopoly to morality. It all boils down to ethics (which is on my long list of things to study).
Don’t you just hate it when people who believe in their heart of hearts that they’re “holier than thou”, make it their business to dictate what you should and shouldn’t do with your life, like as though they’re the ones who’d walk on your shoes and experience every pain and suffering? By Thor! It’s not … Continue reading
April 21, 2011 10:26 am It’s holy week once again. It has always been our family tradition to choose a province in Luzon during Holy Thursday, where we drive around to look for seven cathedrals for our annual Visita Iglesia. During the entire trip, our voices would fill our compact car with songs of praise … Continue reading
As an advocate of the Reproductive Health Bill, I’ve said it time and again, that sex is a basic human need which can be used by couples (whether married or unmarried) for both pleasure and procreation. We can refer to Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and it’s there, at the bottom of the pyramid under … Continue reading
Of all the words that can be attached to the word atheist, why do people nowadays use the word “proud”? Why can’t it be “understanding”, “thinking”, “enlightened”, “loving”, “honest”, etc.?
“My militancy is defined as: fighting for Atheist equal rights. The only thing I want to proselytize is critical thinking.”
I often read posts of theists who say that insulting their religion is like insulting one’s mother. The “Kulo” Go! art exhibit fiasco is no exemption. Okay, I think before they draw out their verbal projectiles to annihilate anyone who disagrees with them, that they should put into consideration that Mideo is an Atheist and … Continue reading
I remember that fateful day. I was in my Accounting 101 class when the news broke out. Two planes crashed in the two towers of the World Trade Center. It didn’t really hit me until I got home and watched the news about it. Terror engulfed me and I thought, if this happened to them, … Continue reading
It really annoys me that most theists expect me to be somewhat an “expert” in religion just because I’m an unbeliever. Sure, I could study about all the religions of the world, and maybe I can participate in Theist vs Atheist debates. But I choose not to. I have the option to choose what I … Continue reading
I always read posts from the anti-RH Bill camp that say children are treasures and the more the parents have the more it is likely for them to get out of poverty. Manila ex-Mayor, Lito Atienza even said in one of his many TV interviews: “the more, the merrier and it’s not right to claim … Continue reading
It seems that those who oppose the Reproductive Health Bill because the bill includes post abortion treatments on those fallible human beings who out of desperation, thought terminating the pregnancy is the only solution, would rather let women die of complications due to a botched abortion. They are after all, pro-life, and they support life from … Continue reading
I know that it’s redundant and I’m begining to sound like a broken record, but I’m going to say it anyway. I’m an Agnostic – Atheist, because I’m not completely dismissing the possiblity of having a creator but I also don’t care. I’m Agnostic, but leaning more into Atheism. What I do know, is that … Continue reading
I only need to say four words and I’m automatically branded as dirty and less than a human being. “I AM AN ATHEIST”.
