15 ways atheists can stand up for rationality

It is a misnomer. There is nothing new about nonbelief.

KOLYMA: The Land of Gold and Death by Stanley J. Kowalski

This vast piece of Arctic and sub-Arctic territory, with its undefined political and geographical borders, was located in the furthest North-East corner of Siberia. Kolyma differed from the remaining Asian land mass in so many ways that it could be considered, metaphorically at least, as an entity unto itself.

The Definition of Love
