Monoatheism sucks!

I have recently come to the conclusion that atheists, over the centuries, have slowly been corralled into a type of monoatheism, where we have become 'without one god'.  However, if we go back to the original, classical view of atheism (from the Greek period), it actually meant that atheists were 'without the practise of fabricating supernatural stories'.The Greeks fabricated a multitude of gods for everything, whether it be a geological, physiological or neurological phenomena.  They had gods…See More

Go Naked

Posted on September 8, 2010 at 8:12am 19 Comments

I feel like that little boy in front of the naked emperor, looking around thinking "Can't anyone see this? What am I missing?" Of course we should ban the Burqa. It is an icon of discrimination. No one defends the wearing of the Burqa on the grounds that it isn’t discrimination; that would be ridiculous. Religious and cultural justifications are also red herrings. Liberty is the…

Ban the Bible and the Quran

The law states that any material that "incites violence or hatred" is ignoring the responsibilities of liberty/free speech and therefore should be banned. Unless it is religious. Then, of course, it is exempt from that law.

Think about this.

On the one hand, an individual could produce a leaflet that incites violence or hatred; only a few hundred people may get to see it, most of whom will dismiss it out of hand. The law argues that if there is a risk…

Man Created God In His Own Image.

I see that there is trouble afoot in India with yet another 'holy man' abusing his power.

But don't forget, it's what God does all the time. He kills, rapes, threatens, bribes, cheats, deceives and manipulates; all for his own…

Greetings, Richard I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

Hey Richard, I saw your post on "Indian Atheists" group. We have an active group here in Bangalore. Not sure if Bangalore is in the list of your itinerary. Anyway, we can discuss in length later.

Hello, What a great community based site that is free from religion. Another step towards taking ethics and passion back from religion and proving that it can be for everyone.

Anyone travelling to London who would like a free guide then let me know. I will do my best to show you the sites.
