Christianity was founded in about 30 AD. The French phrase for orgasm directly translates to "little death." Everybody you know is the result of two clashing pairs of hips.… Continue

Just now, sitting in a grocery store deli, woman reads my Magellan t-shirt ("The Church says the Earth is flat but I know it is round for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the Church"). The woman strikes me as submissive, mousey, dependent.
Woman: "Well, I have faith in god."
Me: "And some… Continue

It is against both Tennessee and U.S. law to lead public school students in prayer. But some people just won't stop breaking the law and trying to find ways around it. Should students have to opt-out in order to be spared from teacher-led prayers?
According to WLBT news
, "A Franklin County High School teacher was fired on Tuesday for leading her students in prayer in the classroom," At first this sounds… Continue

A high school barred eighteen students from their high school prom because their garments didn't meet their 'community standards.' Whilst the standards were a bit weird in a christian nutcase fear of human flesh sort of way, the torture for failing to keep those dangerous girl thighs and girl sternums fully covered was to allow them a choice: Be suspended from their education for three days (why do christians hate education?) or be paddled. As best I can make out, the local version of paddling… Continue

I published this piece at my blog and thought you all might appreciate it.
As you may know, my universe has no room for the possibility of a god. And in general I don't care what other people think and believe as long as their suppositions and practices don't affect me in any way. You can believe in fairies and unicorns and believe you have to bay at the moon 2 times a night to stop from… Continue

God's Song Continue
Cain slew Abel Seth knew not why
For if the children of Israel were to multiply
Why must any of the children die?
So he asked the Lord
And the Lord said:
Man means nothing he means less to me
Than the lowliest cactus flower
Or the humblest Yucca tree
He chases round this desert
'Cause he thinks that's where…

Religious teachings are critically flawed as a means of determining what is true. The value of the stories and the intuitions they promote are essentially subjective and thus relative to a person or group, while science has been distilled to universal strength.
Given a problem--say, what is the speed of sound in a vacuum?--anyone with the necessary technology and tools can answer it. Given a well-defined problem, the scientific answers will agree. (In the case of sound in a… Continue

When I was in the sixth grade, a nun called Sister Maxine (Sister Max) - who had to be a hippy lesbian in disguise - read Madeleine L'Engle's iconic book A Wrinkle in Time
to us. I was totally blown away by that book. At the time I was sure she thought it was a secret take on Christianity. Nevertheless, it inspired me to go to the library and look for more ... science fiction.
I picked up a piece of preteen pulp by a guy named Robert Heinlein. It was about a kid who… Continue

You may wonder why I would think it appropriate to write about an 11-year-old movie in a blog on Atheist Nexus.
As for waiting 11 years, that is merely a function of not having gotten around to seeing the movie until last night. I do apologize for the lack of timeliness, but I can’t see everything when it comes out. I’m not omniscient or omnipresent, after all.
But as for having relevance to… Continue

A god can be many things to many people. One role "he" fills is that of the ultimate master. God the overlord. The alpha of alphas. He's the guy who makes the rules and writes the contract. He specifies what is right, and what is no-way-Jose.
"Servants are not to talk back to their masters. You want to work hard so that your employer will make the money. If the master is wrong, that is his issue. Don't fight back. That's the way to get along with the…

This summer I decided to start attending some functions with other people who may think like myself. Having lived in the Kansas City area for most of my life I had never gone looking for groups to attend. To my pleasant surprise I found a group that meets every Sunday on the University of Missouri Kansas City campus, my alma mater. If the group had been more publicized on campus while I attended school I may have joined earlier, but I'm happy all the same.
The group I attend is the… Continue

There are stereotypes about you no matter what your demographic.
I'm a female, white, middle class, college student, healthcare worker in her mid twenties. I'm also a nearly life long sufferer of depression, an ex smoking daughter of a lung cancer patient and a girlfriend to a smoker. I'm an atheist who borders on anti-theist at times as well as a bit… Continue

I hate all religions. I hate people who have a brain but prefer not to use it. I hate ignorance. I hate religion for doing nothing but constantly undermining intelligence, rational thought, and skeptical thinking, because these are the enemies of religion: Once you start using your brain and acquiring KNOWLEDGE and FACTS instead of DOGMA, religion DIES.

Recently spotted on a thread at CNN:
"I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said 'Stop! don't do it!' 'Why shouldn't I?' he said. I said, 'Well there's so much to live for!' 'Like what?' 'Well, are you religious or atheist?' 'Religious.' 'Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?' 'Christian.' I said, 'Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?' 'Protestant.' 'Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?' 'Baptist!' 'Wow! Me… Continue
