I have never seen any atheist/agnostic limericks, I thought I would give it a try, any one else got one?
Note: Magog IS a town in Canada
A dyslexic agnostic from Magog
Was attacked by a beast in a bog
He prayed for salvation
And was saved by a dalmation,
Does this prove the existence of Dog?
Sign the petition below and show your support for John Kieffer, Florida Atheist. He's been arrested and is facing more than 1 year in prison for not participating in a prayer said at the beginning of a public school board meeting. He, instead, took pictures.

Fear of hell being the cause of persistent faith is not a new concept, but what most people, especially theists don’t understand that just like the admittance of any other kind of fear, admitting fear of hell and/ or the wrath of god is an essential element in the faith of anyone who had ever developed any doubt about his faith. I hold the view that since doubt is the one of the most basic element of human thinking, there never existed a believer, no matter how unshakable he may sound, to…Continue

By now all should be familiar with Jessica Ahlquist, the 16 y/o student in R.I. who took her school to court to defend the U.S. Constitution. She received (and deservedly so) a lot of media attention, but she's not alone. Students across the country are demanding that their…Continue

I started a "discussion" in the forum section of this site describing my initial impressions of the old testament, as I have decided to familiarise myself with as many "sacred" texts as possible - I believe in knowing both sides of an argument, and so far my reading has served to strengthen my atheism. I am left wondering "how can anyone actually believe any of this bullshit, let alone WANT to believe in it?!?".
This and subsequent "brainfart" blog posts will serve as my diary…Continue

Yeah, sorry about the wait. Again, my excuse is sickness. Anyway, you might like this. It's from a French series from the seventies or eighties. I like it because it makes no excuses or tries to sooth Creationists' feelings, and gets right to evolution. I also like the Commedia troupe qualities of the characters. Pierre et Pierrette. It's nice to know they still use those types, even though we American…Continue

In my convention talk, this statement got by far the strongest response.
"Homophobia, for many people, is rooted in guilt and anxiety about their own MASTURBATORY behavior and in the shame they feel about their own bodies." It is among the strongest challenges to religionists. Try using it on someone and see how they respond. Even if they vehemently disagree, there is no doubt that they will think about it the next time they masturbate. It is the most intimate thing you can do with…
I consider the Cosmological Argument the best argument for a creator God. Given the theme of this blog, I don’t consider it a particularly good argument, but it is the best none the less. What follows is the most fair, if not conclusive, rebuttal I have to give.
The argument from the origin of the universe, or the Cosmological Argument dates back to the beginning of apologetics. If you are interested in the history, Google it. I plan on…
My story shows how one day can change your life—one minute, one quick decision in a few seconds.
My girlfriend, Suzanne, and I were strolling up Broadway in the early ‘60s when JFK was president. A kid growing up in a tough neighborhood in NYC in those days had to be pretty macho and street smart to avoid being picked on and pushed around. It was something you learned pretty quickly on the streets, without ever realizing how or why it was happening. But my “one of…Continue

In this blog, I have tried comparing religion to a communicable disease, focussing on how a particular sect of religion can be seen as an multi-drug resistant strain of a harmful microbe.
To eradicate any communicable disease from a nation, let us say, there is first a nation-wide attack of measures. This is usually followed by surveys telling you the info on the more difficult zones in the nation that deserve special attention. Towards hitting the target of eradication, mopping up…

We have lots of evidence that about 230,000 years ago, colonies of Neandertals began to settle on the continent of Europe. They were alone there, from what we know, until about 30,000 years ago at which time our own ancestors began to colonize Europe as well. It has been a pretty widely accepted theory that Homo Sapiens came in and outwitted the Neandertals and managed to wipe them out by out-surviving them. More recent evidence and evidence analysis has shown that theory is likely to…Continue
