Christianity Forced to Accept Gays

We have all probably seen annoying posts by Christians that say "love thy neighbor" and insisting that they be accepting of gays and marriage equality. That is nice. I do like to see Christians rationalizing on how to be accepting of others. But let us not forget that per their faith their position of acceptance is unwarranted.Leviticus 20:13 (their god's law relayed by Moses)"If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are…See More

About Me:
I was raised as a fundamentalist christian (First Church of the Nazarene) and broke away from religion after doing an in depth study of the Bible and various science subjects. I am an active blogger on weareatheism and a published author.

My Book

"Tools for Debating Atheism" just released. Handy information for atheists that often have conversations with theists. I explain the logical fallacies often heard in theist arguments, some good science in layman's terms, apologetics, solipsism and much more.

Indoctrination: Protecting the Virus

Posted on May 7, 2015 at 12:41am 10 Comments

A question I often get asked is how it is that people that would otherwise seem quite smart and logical could maintain irrational beliefs. How is it that my mother, an otherwise brilliant woman, can believe in a talking snake, a god sacrificing himself to himself, or that the biblical flood actually happened? 

Indoctrination.

By bypassing their rational reasoning skills early in childhood regarding this one group of beliefs, and by reinforcing those…

Ground Zero Cross case

Posted on April 23, 2015 at 1:24pm 31 Comments

The symbolic Ground Zero cross WILL STAY at the 9/11 Memorial Museum as atheists' lose their case! In the ruling the judge said, “The stated purpose of displaying The Cross at Ground Zero to tell the story of how some people used faith to cope with the tragedy is genuine and an objective observer would understand the purpose of the display to be secular.” 

Ummm... Let's look at this ridiculous statement piece by piece...

A Good Response to Fine Tuning Nonsense

Posted on April 7, 2015 at 8:30am 16 Comments

Many fine tuning arguments rely on some vague assessment of beauty and purpose to justify, in their minds, the proposal for a magical invisible creator transcendent-mind genie. They also make baseless claims of probability when we have exactly 1 universe to assess and as such lack a denomenator with which to calculate universal probabilities. 

They mock us as cold and empty for not being so awed by pretty or…

Hi Gregory! Welcome to Atheist Nexus and the Origins group.

I saw your post to the discussion I started about some people being indifferent to music and I very much share your love for music. I have it in my bones. What kind do you compose? (I have composed some also - only melody - and I am wondering if there is an overlap in our tastes.)

Also, since you have published there is a group called Atheist Writers that you might want to join. You can check it out at:

http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/atheistwriters 

I too have done a little writing. I wrote a very logical and succinct disproof of the Biblical god concept that was published by the Science and Rationalists Association of India. Not only are all of the premises self-evident but it is founded in human limitations rather than having the weakness of depending on the proposition that there is something a god can't do. It is almost solipsistic. If you think it is valid feel free to use it provided of course that you give appropriate credit. I have a copyright on it and It is located at:

http://www.srai.org/the-biblical-god-concept-nullified/

 

Please get back to me about your music. Welcome again and I hope you enjoy the site.
