I post relevant and interesting atheist articles on reddit via the EAC sub-board.
There are atheists. They[we] do conspire. As far as theists are concerned, we're evil, and if evil is the denial of god and godliness, then I'm as evil as they come. I rejected faith in a conference with the local Bishop whilst only 8 years old. I played along for many years, to make friends, keep jobs, and so on, but never gained anything from this game. In fact, playing along only caused me more… Continue
In the debate over the virus metaphor, many people miss the clear parallels between the human brain and a computer. While many have no problem with the notion that computers can be infected with a metaphorical "virus", it seems that the line is drawn when the human brain is involved. There is abundant evidence that biological viruses can infect and take control of organic brains - controlling them much as a computer virus does. What makes us so resistant to the notion that ideas can do the same… Continue
ill say it again
you must be careful wen you say some thing in here , first of all James Randi's account was deleted because of a copyright claim. not because of censures.
Someone filed a DCMA on this channel. Once they do that, they are required by federal law to suspend the channel and delete the video until it is resolved.
and for the person who posted on the main page saying that JM is taking the high road , well that's just wishful thinking , i saw the vid and he seams to be… Continue
I ended up getting the package while my parents were at my dorm. When I opened them I had said the pins were for the American Atheist National Convention so my dad was wondering where his pin was (he thought it was the pass to get in) but I told him I didn't get him one… Continue

I have been neglecting the e-world for a while. Things have been pretty crazy with me, and I'm plain lazy. I guess I needed a break. Plus I got a new xbox 360 so I've been playing video games like crazy when I should be studying for my PPL test.
Anyway, I'm on the Council of Ex Muslims forum and there's this really nationalist sounding dude on it. His view is that all Muslims (moderate or not) should be deported to Muslim countries. Wow. That's a pretty stupid thing to say on… Continue

I was contacted by an Australian Christian who found 10 questions on the internet and wanted to publicly write them on my "website" and have me answer them. I don't know what website he was talking about; I suspected it was my Atheist Nexus page, but I'm not certain. I have lots of pages, but my only websites with my… Continue
I just returned from talking with a great group in Joplin, MO - link. Who would guess that there is a very active and lively group of freethinkers in such a bible belt city (25 attended). We had five students from Ozark Christian College in the audience as well. They asked interesting questions and stayed around for some good conversation at the end. I rarely get religious people in my presentations, but I certainly… Continue
...I'm gonna be a Grandma again today!! My beautiful daughter is finally in labor with her 1st child, a baby boy!! I'm overwhelmed and very emotional about it, so I'm glad her wonderful hubby is there at her side!! I'm getting ready to head out to St. Joe's in a moment, but wanted to stop in and say hi to my new friends here, and share this fabulous news!!
...I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who has invited me to discussions and groups so enthusiastically. It's all kind of… Continue
It's great to finally see people treating the US military's "don't ask - don't tell" nonsense as the irrational woo that it is. The other night Colin Powell and Clifford Alexander separately addressed this issue on Rachel Maddow, and I thought Alexander in particular laid out the despicable illogic of the military's standing position.
I'm not a military specialist, so I can't address that side of this issue. But I do think this whole issue of gays in the… Continue
Logic linking, rational thinking, socratic speaking, skeptical sleuths seeking out truths clouded in conditioned youths determined by causality to seek out the details of debris, part of some ultimate reality, following evidence with each sense condensed through perspectives fence of relativity realized through free inquiry, following leads, pulling out weeds, recognizing breeds thanks to evolution, an elegant solution to the diversity of life, knifed by supernatural beliefs, arrogant chiefs,… Continue
I wanted to post this link where everyone could see it. I just found this through StumbleUpon and clicked to play the video because I was trying to figure out who this guy was. I knew his name but not his work. This is not a piece of his work, so don't expect to laugh much, but I think he had some good stuff to say, especially toward the end.
Hi, I've been a member for a couple of months now, but I had not felt enough confidence to write anything, until now.
I'm for México and I'm sorrounded by religious people, some moderate, some extremists but the majority of the people, including my whole family is catholic, just like I used to be (or still are if you consider the fact that they just don't let you go so easily, you know since you just can't erase baptism).
I realized I was really and atheist about 2 years… Continue
Yeah, they're years old, back when I didn't know anything about anything. Not that I know anything yet. But there's some value there. There's the Jack Chick tract "Dark Dungeons" written by my hub Francois Tremblay, as an old detective play. Then there's Noah's Ark, as seen through the eyes of a pwecious wittle girl. It's strangely moving. Finally, an inconceivable tract, "The Unloved," a terrible Jack Chick soap, with some bad audio, but some hilarious moments too--if you can hear it properly.… Continue
DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa's Supreme Court legalized gay marriage Friday in a unanimous and emphatic decision that makes Iowa the third state — and first in the nation's heartland — to allow same-sex couples to wed.
Iowa joins only Massachusetts and Connecticut in permitting same-sex marriage. For six months last year, California's… Continue
