The National Atheist Party Is Born!

Before I start on my rant, I do want to say that I admire and respect those who took the initiative to take on such a major venture that is, in my opinion, a historic turning point.

 

It is a necessary and important step.

 

Kudos to them, even if I don’t agree with the name of the party.…

Is This Really Necessary?

God Fearing Guy
IN GOD WE TRUST - This religious display is quite appropriate and didn't need an act of Congress to do.

I'm an Atheist, but I like most Theists. Really, I do. Admittedly I don't agree with them, but I'm also…

Dating when you're over 40, divorced, atheist, angry at religion, with baggage

I'm looking for some input here.

 

As you can tell from previous posts, over the last year I've been divorcing my increasingly fundamentalist wife who was homeschooling my two children and unintentionally sabotaging their chances at a normal childhood/adulthood. I've been married for 17+ years, since my (very) early 20s. It wasn't a great marriage. It was ok. At first. Theologically neither of us were very passionate in the beginning. As I think on my past more I realize I…

A Hell of a Way to Rally People to Your Cause

 

Theist Board

 

One man’s immorality is another man’s religion, even if the immorality of that religion is pointed out by atheists. It’s common for religious adherents to sometimes act immorally – and sometimes hypocritical – despite what their religions supposedly teach. The same is true for atheists and what they believe. People…

Tax Exemptions: The Business of Religion

Disclaimer: The Omnipotent Poobah, aka Jack Koeneman, is a former Christian turned atheist. He has nothing against most theists and respects their beliefs – up to the point where they step on his.



I have dozens of theist friends. Our discussions are generally polite and lean toward the relative merits of atheist and theist beliefs, not mundane secular topics like religious tax breaks. But with the hew and cry over…

Pastor Mike is a Back Seat Driver

Disclaimer: I'm a former Christian who is now an atheist. I have nothing against most theists and respect their beliefs - up to the point where they step on mine. However, even in my Christian days I would've been appalled by the hubris of this plan.

Bash atheist I'm overjoyed so many religious people are so protective of my soul that they insist upon preaching to me at every…

One Nation, Over God: A Lecture By Aaron Bissell

I just want to say, throughout this, I talk about mostly about the Christian religion since that is the one I researched the most.



So, lets cover the basics of religion. Now, I understand that people WAY back then would believe such things as a sun god, a moon god sky god etc. They didn't have modern science. So, they just made up certain stories. Many people from different cultures made up there own gods (well, Christians just picked certain things from other religions and…

Easter Fun!

Ali is four and goes to preschool. It's a half day program. Part of my daily routine when I'm playing Responsible Dad Guy is to drop her off and pick her up. I passed the school library and there was a display of kiddy Easter books. I did a double take. Did I just see what I thought I saw?… Continue

SOCIETAL SHARED ERRORS

"Religion is comparable to a childhood neurosis. The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life."  – Sigmund Freud

 

Professing dogmatic faith in popular superstitions and ancient myths handed down by our primal…

Atheists Need a Gang Sign

Atheists need a gang sign. Gangs, regardless of their business endeavors, have it right : a simple hand gesture that identifies members. No questions needed. Someone flashes you the sign they’re in the same club. I was in a fraternity as an undergraduate (I prefer to think of it as a charitable…

Misunderstandings of Atheists

In my last blog, ‘My Story’ I had mentioned the misconceptions of Atheists and said that this was a topic for another day. Well, today I will talk about this topic, and why it’s important to me to rid society of these stigmas, and why in fact(in my opinion) these misconceptions exist at all.

How do any group of people get misunderstood or labeled as ‘bad’? It can stem from a number of things and really isn’t…
