Part of the doctrine of most branches of evangelical Christianity is that it is important to convert others to the belief in order to save their eternal souls. This involves influencing others in order to sell the system.

If you want to sell an idea to someone it helps to know your audience. Going into a discussion with a set of false notions about the beliefs and values of those you are talking to just makes you sound ridiculous. You need to understand what the real issues are, not… Continue

What the Fuck Are Atheist Doing?

What The Fuck Are Atheist Doing?

So it seems to me that exposure of atheists and atheist issues has been on the rise in the last few years. I think this is a wonderful accomplishment and to be taken very seriously.

There are recent books which have been New York Times best sellers like The God Delusion, Breaking the Spell, The End of Faith, God is not Great, Infidel and others. We have a wonderful recent movie from Bill Maher; Religulous.

If you are into… Continue

President Obama's "Special Olympics" comment

So if any one hasn't seen the footage I'll include it at the end of the blog. So 3-19-09 Pres. Obama was on 'The Tonight Show' with Jay Leno and made the comment "like the Special Olympics or something" in regards to his 129 bowling score. I personally find the comment very offensive. I have a brother with Down Syndrome. It is offensive in the same way to say "I am cheap like a kike", " drink like a mick", "lazy like a nigger" etc. I am an Obama supporter but he made it seem like the… Continue

Am I the only one who has this problem?

Lately, everyone I know seems to be getting Super-Religious. My parents are Catholic, but it was never a big deal that I didn't believe. But this past 6 months or so, they've been dropping Jesus bombs like crazy. My dad said that all my bad luck will go away if I just read one book of the bible. My mom said I was a "disappointment" because I don't believe.

And it's affected my friends, too. One good friend of mine has been writing… Continue

Should Religion Be Allowed Before Age Of Consent?

When our 3-year-old daughter was mauled by a neighborhood dog, we were distraught, as any parent would be. But, as Jehovah's Witnesses, we faced an even greater fear, beyond the trauma and scars introduced by the dog bites: What if she needed a blood transfusion? Our religious convictions mandated that we refuse. Her very life could be in danger, not from the attack, but from our beliefs.

My mother, an insanely devout woman if ever there was one, immediately called the congregation… Continue

Plenty of Fish

I came across a non-Christian dating site called Plenty of Fish. Now I have been happily married for over 15 years, and I can't imagine life with anyone but my husband, but I was curious about this site that claimed to use some type of algorithm to match people up. With my husband's knowledge, I signed up for an account, stressing that I was happily married and looking for friends. So far, I've received about 4 messages. They all say basically the same thing (they're married, but "looking for… Continue

Thank the g......aww shit!

This is my first blog, I am an atheist, this however is nice to say because it is hard to say out loud in this area that I find myself (that by the way I did not choose, damn parents) I have, like many here, have a need bordering on obsession to know things and how they work, and why people believe what they do and why I believe what I do. I am grateful for forums like these that I may speak what is on my mind without fear of judgment or scorn, without it I would slowly go mad and retreat into… Continue

Dude, where's our Bible?

Having just gotten back from vacation it struck me how good a job the people of Gideon's bible have done of distributing their bible. It's truly amazing that pretty much every hotel room I stay in (in the U.S. at least) contains a copy. The unfortunate thing is that they (Gideon) seem to have somewhat of a monopoly at the moment. Wouldn't it be great if there was a book (or maybe even a pamphlet?) sitting next to their bible that provided details of what non-religious people believe, based on… Continue

When a Christian decided to go soul fishing on the Unreasonable Faith site recently, his ignorance of the reality of non-belief and non-believers tripped him up.

Most Religionists are incredibly ignorant of what it means to be a non-believer. Fundamentalists of any brand are among the most naive in this respect. The gross inadequacy of their primary assumptions about the causes and characteristics of atheism is one of the reasons why attempts to reconvert the disillusioned faithful… Continue

Atheist vs. Agnostic

Atheist: I'm an atheist.

Closeted Atheist: Oh, well, I think you're going a bit too far. I mean, you can't conclusively prove that gods don't exist.

Atheist: So, you are a theist?

Closeted Atheist: Of course not! I'm agnostic; I don't claim that gods don't exist because that's a non-falsifiable claim. It's not possible to prove a negative.

Atheist: I agree and take the same… Continue

An atheist blogger recently outlined her experience as a commuting prisoner of a loud-mouther Bible Banger.

It made me think about what I could do to counter such an anti-social attack. Perhaps a humorous counter attack might work.

I am thinking of preparing a mini book of not-so-nice Bible quotes which I carry with me at all times in preparation for a similar attack. Then with a loud voice I can cry to the… Continue

Arguments Against the Existence of God

Lots of folks like to assert that you cannot prove a negative, but this is a completely and obviously self-defeating position. We can prove that there are no cows in my apartment right now and that I cannot fly upwards at will or that there are no square circles. We might also point out that some of the most basic principles of logic are stated as negatives like the law of non-contradiction - No proposition can be both true and false at the same time and in the same respect. So, this leads me… Continue

Obama on reason

What would it be like to have a US President who valued reason, objective reality and evidence as the bases of public policy, instead of superstitions, ignorance and magic? Well, it would be - it is - something like this:

The following is a rebuttal of a website that was supposed to confirm that marijuana causes physical withdrawal symptoms like booze or heroin. Click on the link below for the article.

“Marijuana—Addiction and Other Issues.”

Overall I thought the University of Wisconsin -- Madison piece was naïve, scientifically invalid and sophomoric. The article… Continue

BSG Finally WTF!? (Contains spoilers)

The first half was good (despite Bultars speech) however the second half.

Kara (using Hereas drawings as coordinates) finds earth (our earth, the other one was a different earth) but they find it one hundred fifty thousand years ago. And they find humans on the planet. Humans that evolved independently from the Colonial humans (they came from Cobol).

The Colonials and the Cylons rebels get to earth and what do they do? They decide to abandon their culture, their philosophy’s,… Continue

God's Last Will and Testament

Judeo-Christians use the phrase “God's Will”. They'll use it to explain why bad things happen to good people. They use it to explain weird and illogical rules in the Bible.

Christians will say God's will is clear. “It clearly states in the Bible, fag's shouldn't marry”. To get the full effect of the last quote read it again this time with a judgmental know-everything southern accent. “It clearly states in the Bible, fag's shouldn't marry”. Now you should look at your cousin… Continue

I do not appreciate nor do I respect religion. I mouth off to people, strangers, who say “bless you” to me when I sneeze. That said, you can imagine my annoyance when, after getting on a full train car this morning, I was accosted by a middle-aged, weave-haired black woman preacher holding a Bible in her hand and shouting her sermon at the top of her lungs. The entire train car, with the exception of one man who tried to order the woman to be quiet, sat there and took the abuse without comment.… Continue
