Human soul

I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

Someone flagged my profile at Google+ so they blocked it. I don't know how long it will take for them to get back to me. Really? Shouldn't there be a safeguard against suppressing freedom of speech? Especially at Google, of all places.

An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as "religious headgear".

What a riot! The pastafarian response to burkas! I prefer my spagetti with crushed garlic soaked in extra virgin Arbequina varietal olive oil, and shredded Pecorino Romano. A religious experience for sure, surpassing all other communion experiences. All other sauces are sacriledge.

LOL  Epic WIN!


I do wonder if Pastafarians will start having internal disagreements and schisms...such as which is best, Marinara sauce, or Alfredo?  My own preference is Alla Checca...

This News Release has me steaming:

A billboard featuring a cheerful student saying, “I can be good without God,” was too much for the delicate sensibilities of a local church in Columbus, Ohio, which insisted late last week that a local billboard company remove the message.

The billboard picturing Dylan Galos, a Columbus student and atheist, was removed and is awaiting placement at an alternate eastside Columbus location.

Not so much that a church complained, that's to be expected from people who are obviously unsure about their invisible imaginary friend's existence, but that the billboard company caved in to the complaint and moved the sign to another location.  Why does a whine from a church outweigh the rights of the people who paid for the billboard?

Well put, Wanda & Jeronimo!  The more I read here and on various other atheist resources, the more confident I become in my ability to share why I am an atheist when asked.  The knowledge I've gained is invaluable, even from comments like Jeronimo's.  Thanks to all :)

Hey Wanda, thanks for the support.

I think if everyone do a little bit at the end we will achieve something big. If we just change the word religion for mythology in every discussion we have, this word will be more and more common. At the same time we have to take advantage of every opportunity to point out the nonsense of religions and criticizes the advantages they have. Let’s share it.

Have a great day,

Very well articulated, Jeronimo! You make an excellent case and I'm happy to join you in the endeavor.  I'm one who sees great potential in individual effort. Every paradigm ever shifted started with a single push.

Dear Sean,


You are right, changing the status from religion to mythology will not make people stop believing in miracles, invisible friends, divine power/moral, etc. But I don't think that mythology followers are receiving subsides from government as religion is, nor fiscal advantages and legal privileges. I respect the right of mature and enlightened people have to believe in whatever they want. What I don't think it is fair is to put these beliefs in a almost untouched position above of everybody else. Not so long time ago slavery use to be seen as normal as well as smoke in flights use to be. Now a day if you try to do such a thing you are in trouble. People mind changed about these bad practices, so let’s start changing people mind about religion being something more real than mythology. Let’s stop their privileges. This is the first step.

Thank you for your participation.
