Lately I have been describing myself as a former Young Earth Creationist, Fundamentalist, wacko. At first I thought that the addition of the word "wacko" would cause much backlash. I have not had one negative comment even in Christian forums. I think this is due to a number of reasons. First of all, I am calling myself this and not pointing fingers at anyone else. What is interesting about this is, I can describe beliefs others still have yet they probably think "yes I belive that but I'm…Continue
Let me begin by saying that I’ve never heard the voice of any god, demon or angel.
Never! Trust me, I’ve never even gotten a phone call from one. I’m just as relieved to tell the you the truth, because if I ever did hear the voice of a god, any god, I’d shit my britches. On the one hand, it would be the most earth shattering conversation I’ve ever had, assuming that god would let me ask a…Continue
Once again, I'm bringing Debunking Christianity, a website belonging to John Loftus to my blog. I am now a regular guest writer on John's site and proud to be part of his continuing dedication to debunking religion and its harmful effects on humankind.
This week, I wrote an article about the persistent belief in heaven and hell. Although often full of conflicting ideas about what these two places might be…Continue
I personally haven't been harmed by religion. I have been an Atheist all my life, but didn't have the label Atheist till I was an adult. I have heard many stories where Atheists were harmed because of their lack of belief in the supernatural. I was wondering how many of you here have been harmed by religion and how you were harmed?
I started pestering my parents when I was just a kid with questions about why god as our heavenly father would withhold life-saving information from his creation. Needless to say, they never had an answer that satisfied me even back then. Those questions linger, popping up from time to time in adult conversations that I have with friends. To this day, no good answers have been provided. So, I wrote an article for Debunking Christianity where I listed…Continue
How many times have we heard it:
“What would it take for you to accept that god exists?”
Answers from atheists to this question have been many and varied. In an interview with Randy Frazee of the Oak Hills Church of San Antonio, Texas, Friendly Atheist Hemant Mehta said that a personal experience might convince him. Various others, including Matt Dillahunty, have proposed that Yahweh himself knows what it would take to dissuade him from his apostasy, but as of yet has…
One morning, I woke up and said to myself, “I want to travel the world.”
So, I sold everything that I owned and traveled the world for several years. That decision changed my life. Thirteen years later, I winter in Spain and am still crossing off places to explore from my bucket list. As an “untourist” I’ve learned so much about other countries, things I never would’ve known if I’d merely…Continue

I'm honored to have been invited to be a regular contributor of Debunking Christianity, a website belonging to the sensational Christian apologist turned atheist, John Loftus. John has published many books. He's a religious myth buster extraordinaire. My first article was published a few days ago. It's entitled:…Continue

Faith in all its definitions, even non-religious definitions is a form of deliberate ignorance.
Faith: (Oxford Dictionary).
ARE HUMANS NATURALLY GREEDY?
Yes. Many humans have a desire to accumulate things more than what they need or deserve.
It can not be denied that some people are more ‘Greedy’ than others. People act in a greedy way for different reasons. Of course there are the megalomaniacs and narcissists who are completely self-obsessed, just as there are the completely selfless martyrs.
For every Vijay Mallya there is a Mother Theresa ( Taking…Continue
