Cellar Door Skeptics 149: Changing the Political Landscape with Ron, Garnet, and Jerry

The local political discussion continues with Cellar Door Skeptics as they interview politics at the local level who will help make a difference in our society. The GOP continues to want to claim states rights is the only way to go. Well we feel we need to fight back by taking local politics back while moving Michigan from a hazy red toward a strong blue. The wave is coming and without your voice, we can not change society to be more progressive without you.

This week we talk with Ron Draayer running for office in the 72 district, Garnet Lewis in the 26th District, and Jerry in the 89th district. The common theme we talk about is helping the populous of Michigan, while continuing to help those in need. Each candidate focuses on how they can help shape Michigan to be more humanistic in their values while protecting minorities and creating as fair a landscape as possible.

Grillin’ with Atheists: Humble Beginnings and Helping Those in Need

Charity is very important to helping those in society that have fallen on hard times or those that are less fortunate than we are.  Ultimately, charity is a necessary function to help move humanity forward; the government should’nt be the only ones providing charity.  Many non-profit organizations provide a way for people to engage, help out, and support humanity.  We here at Atheist Analysis feel this is a very important function and one that we want to contribute to as much as we can.

Leave Well Enough Alone: How Doing Nothing Can Be Louder


I was recently enthralled to learn of a Satanic Temple temporary display that was to be erected on the capitol lawn in Lansing Michigan this holiday season.  The display being a response by the Detroit branch of the Satanic Temple to the planned nativity scene by a group from out of state wishing to promote their religious worldview on state property.


While news of this flavor of tit for tat rivalry is nothing new to my weary eyes and ears, I was surprised to learn that the Christian group had notified the authorities or locals that they could not follow through as they could not tear down the scene every night.  The temporary requisite, non permanent status being put up daily and torn down nightly, could not be met by the out of town Christians thus they were not going to have a display.
