A Final Blog Post and Call to Arms



Dear Faithless Readers,

As was obvious by my absence, I have drifted away from my blog.  The horrific realities of our current political state have supplanted my religious aversion and activism. While I'll forever hold my atheist and anti-theism position, it pales in comparison to the political threat at hand.  Therefore, for the foreseeable future I bid you all adieu, and implore you to keep resisting both religious incursions into our freedom, and the destruction of our nation by oligarchs and traitors from within.

Thank you for your readership, your comments, your insights and friendships.

I leave you with this one last thought:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
- Cicero,  Roman Statesman 42 CE



Your faithless servant,
Dromedary Hump

I feel much the same way, atheists of the progressive/liberal variety need to make common cause with the liberal Christians, etc.

Fair thee well Hump. Well met sir, well met. Always a pleasure, and never ever a disappointment.

David said...

You have been a fearless and formidable opponent to religious stupidity, I wish you well fighting the political absurdity that has spread across your nation like the plague.

I will miss your wisdom and excellent writing. I wish the very best to you and your dear family.

RickRay said...

Good luck in all your future endeavors. Your blog has always brought a smile to my atheist face. Let's hope common sense and critical thinking survive the crazy wave America is riding on. From Canada, "EH."

When I discovered your blog, it was if for the first time, I had a friend who thought as I did! It was amazing with my religious upbringing and teachings that never ever took hold, you were intelligent and put your words out there for like minded people. Seriously, you were my connection to the reality in which we live. Love, intelligence, and connections, the things that help us grow and be whole. Thank you for the exchange of thoughts, thank you for your writing and honesty. You will be missed but never forgotten. Love and best wishes from a friend.

I have missed you, but I always knew you'd be back ... and now you won't!

I have enjoyed your wit, your wisdom, your occasional acerbity.

I wish you well in whatever you may undertake in the future.

Regards...

This must mean you're RUNNING FOR OFFICE! I'll tell all my family to vote for you!

Farewell Bart,

As you have stated, times and priorities have and will always change. I have enjoyed your insights since the MSN chat\Iron Chariots\Pet Rescue days.

Stay well and continue to fight the good fight, especially now that we have the most unfit POTUS 45.

Best Regards

P.S. If I ever win the Powerball Grand Prize, I still intend to invite you (and immediate family, all expenses paid) to Seattle to dine at the Space Needle. Just make sure I have a means to contact you :)

It's been an absolute pleasure having a connection to a free-thinker in the US. Thank you for sharing your insights and thoughts.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavours, Bart.

Helga said...

Dearest Hump... your farewell post has made me feel quite emotional, something I didn't expect, but there it is. The line that keeps me going is: "Therefore, for the foreseeable future..." My blog hewdge has been silent because of ill-health, a cancer diagnosis but I'm now free of the pesky tumour. I will never give in. The insanity called organised religion, and those creatures now running the Banana Republic of the United States, will never prevail
When Christopher Hitchens died, it was though a great light went out. Now there are so few voices in the wilderness willing to speak up and speak out. You are one of them. Everywhere around the world, blasphemy laws are tightening (although 'bless' Denmark for repealing theirs recently). We need you. I do hope the Hump can come through the desert of blogging silence. As we all know, Camels are extraordinarily resilient creatures..

Lisa said...

I feel a real connection to this blog and its readers, a balm for the anxiety I try to deal with each day since the election. Now what? Here come the tears.

Dromedary Hump said...

Thank you all for your kind words of support.
It has been my privilege to have shared my thoughts with my like thinking friends and readers.

I wish you all good health, strength, and the determination to keep up the good fight...both secular and political.

Yours in reason,

Bart
Dromedary Hump.

paul said...

Wow. I simply can't think of anything to add to the words of the other commenters. Yes, I've looked here every morning for the past many, many months, and will sorely miss the occasional burst of wisdom from the Hump. Farewell, and fare well.

Den!s said...

What the fuck, you got dumped from fb for a month? For what, do they even say?

Dromedary Hump said...

Denis! LOl..yeah. evidently the shit I laid on some red neck trump supporting racist twit woman was not well rec'd by facebook. email me so I ca have your email on file:
atheistcamelchronicles@msn.com

GRSshoes said...

Nice post...

Den!s said...

What section of FB's terms of service did you violate? Selling ammo? Lots of people sell ammo on there. Did you tell some granny that you were comin for her again?

Denis

Dromedary Hump said...

Den!s,
Heheh..they showed me my posting on my business page that had the dollar amount etc. evidently you can't literally offer ammo for sale.

BTW..you DO have my email address right? I emailed you yesterday.

Den!s said...

Bob Terrace tried to send and email to you but it didn't go through...

I just tried sending an email to Bart at atheistcamelchronicles@msn.com and it bounced back as unknown address.

Does anyone know what is going on?

How do we reach him? I used to have another email address but lost it.

- Bob Terrace

Dromedary Hump said...

Denis...just spoke with Bob. as i suspected..he was spelling my email address incorrectly. :)

Kieran said...

Bart,

Somehow I had forgotten you had signed off the blog. Went to read the latest and re-read your sign off. Sad to see it go -- even if more than a year later. About the time you signed off, you had helped inspire me to start my own "Bullshit Blog", which has almost all the anger and none of the practical application. My topics are all over hell. But I have a few about how religion ruins everything. https://kieranr3.wixsite.com/bullshit/kieran-s-blog-united-states-kieran/tag/church%20sign

Thanks for the rants... feels good to go back and re-read.

برای عکسِ
آتلیه نوزاد، فقط بیست تا بیست و پنج روز وقت دارین. دنیای نوزاد خیلی پاک و چهره اون معصوم‌ترین و شادترین چهره توی دنیای پیچیده ما آدم بزرگاست. پس بیاین این لحظه‌های شیرینو که فقط بیست روزه، با کمک گرفتن از متخصصین توی آتلیه، پررنگ و زنده توی ذهنمون ثبت کنیم.
مسلماً عجیب‌ترین و بی‌نظیرترین حس در طول زندگیتون، لحظه‌ای بود که نوزاد دلبندتون به شما هدیه شد و پا به عرصه هستی گذاشت. میتونین تمامی این حس و زیبایی اونو با عکس آتلیه نوزاد، برای همیشه تازه نگه دارین.
توی دنیا هیچ حسی شیرین‌تر و خاطره‌انگیزتر از لحظه‌ای نیست که یک عضو جدید به خانوادتون اضافه میشه. این حس به‌مرورزمان و با بزرگ شدن دلبندتون، کم‌رنگ و کمرنگ‌تر میشه چون اون کارهای قشنگ دیگه‌ای یاد میگیره و کم‌کم حرکات و رفتارش بزرگ‌تر میشه.
آتلیه کودک
اینو از روی تجربه بهتون میگیم. زمانی که مراجعین ما برای عکسای بعدی کودکشون به آتلیه مراجعه میکنن، اعتراف میکنن که اگه عکسای قشنگ نوزادشون نبود، به‌مرور اون لحظه‌های زیبا فراموش می‌شد و به همین دلیل اقدام به عکس گرفتن در آتلیه کودک میکنن. این یه تجربه هست که اگه در این مورد از تجربه دیگران استفاده نکنید، دیگه نمیتونین اون لحظه‌ها رو برگردونین که ثبتش کنین. چون ثبت یک عکس توی آتلیه نوزاد، متوقف کردن زمانه که هرگز تکرار نمیشه.
شما از پنج‌روزگی این فرشته زمینی تا بیست و پنج‌روزگی وقت دارین ازش عکس نوزادی توی آتلیه بگیرین. حتی اگه صورتش حالت نوزادیو حفظ کنه بدنش انعطاف زمان نوزادیو نداره. پس زودتر به آتلیه نوزاد بیاین و این لحظه‌های خاطره‌انگیز رو ثبت کنین.
ممکنه بگین ما خودمون از نوزادمون عکسای قشنگی میگیریم. ولی مطمئناً شما با آزمون‌وخطا لحظه‌های زیبای زیادی رو از دست میدین که ما توی آتلیه نوزاد میتونیم اونو زنده کنیم. شاید باورتون نشه که عکسای آتلیه به خاطر حرفه‌ای بودنشون همیشه مثل روز اولی که ثبت شدن، شما رو به ذوق و شوق میارن. ثبت لبخند معصوم و زیبای این فرشته کوچولو هیچ‌وقت از یادتون نمیره اگه اونو توی آتلیه نوزاد به ثبت برسونین.
آتلیه بارداری
عکس آتلیه نوزاد صبر و حوصله زیادی رو میطلبه گاهی دو تا سه ساعت باید منتظر بمونی که بتونی از نوزاد توی حالتای مختلفی مثل لبخند، خنده بلند، اخم، برگردوندن لب و حتی گریه عکس بگیری. کیفیتی که عکس آتلیه نوزاد داره به‌هیچ‌وجه قابل‌مقایسه با عکاسی توی خونه نیست حتی اگه با دوربینای حرفه‌ای گرفته بشه. دلیلشم اینه که متخصصای باتجربه تمام نکته‌های یه عکس زنده رو میدونن. نکته‌هایی مثل زاویه‌ها، زوم کردنها، تعیین نقطه‌ای که دلبندتون باید توی عکس قرار بگیره نسبت به وسایل اطرافش و خیلی نکات دیگه.
پس تا فرشته کوچولوتون به بیست و پنج‌ روزگی نرسیده و بزرگ‌تر نشده اقدام کنین. حضور شما توی آتلیه نوزاد، باعث افتخار ماست. ما لحظه‌های شیرین دلبندتونو به طرز باورنکردنی به خاطره‌ای زیبا تبدیل می‌کنیم
