So my girlfriend is studying to become a lay minister within her Church. I even helped her pay for a class. She knows I’m an atheist and is fine with that. And I’m fine with the fact she is a Christian.
Well, during the class someone mentioned, yes..you know how…ATHESISTS….
Ya know what the instructor told the class.
Atheists tend to have and behave more “Christian” then the Christians.
That took a lot of people aback.
Kinds throws a different like on…Continue
Philosophical Atheism Before you go back and preach to your friends and saying I am an angry atheist. Think about it for a second. Many atheists like myself are not angry at God (because he probably does not exist), but [we are angry] at people like yourself for constantly shoving something down our throats that is without proper foundations, without the proper evidence. Many of us are very well educated and have looked into your…Continue
A difference between theism and atheism is each's idea of morality. To the theist, whether Jew, Christian, or Muslim, morality is linked to obedience to alleged divine commands. A theist conforms to God's commands whether they call for proselyting or committing acts of murder and genocide. So the theist believes morality is linked to obeying God without question or deliberation.
The atheist, however, bases morality on doing what's right based on reasoning and…
Being an Ex-Muslim and born of Pakistan, it sure brings with itself a barrage of problems, pressures, ridicule and a lot of threats, especially if you happen to be an atheist and are fighting for your right to be an apostate or stand and oppose religious beliefs.
If you happen to be born in a country that takes Islam as the forefront for law-making, rights and the way of life to be run in that country, then you're most likely stripped away with a great deal of freedom of choice,…
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.Continue

Hey,everybody! Check this site out, they really need our support!
Black Atheists of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to bridging the gap between atheism and the black community. Black atheists often find themselves as a minority within a minority group and underrepresented in the overall…Continue
This blog was prompted by a recent YouTube video add in the "Atheist Humor" group wherein some guy with an Australian accent is sitting in some posh room a la "Masterpiece Theater" and ranting about people who are "too stupid to be an Atheist".
His target this time around was "Humanities" students with Liberal Arts degrees who scoff at Christians.
I happen to be one of those people with what basically amounts to a Liberal Arts degree, as I am a teacher of Art and Theatre. …Continue

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)
In the United States there is a widespread idea that there is an ongoing "war on Christmas" waged by atheists and in general, people who prefer a secular government in which every person has the same rights. As usual, this idea is proposed by the whiny religious right (mainly conservative Christians).
Sometimes they will…
I have been what I call a devoted and or a committed atheist for about 10 years now. After getting free from the repression of the “Steve Abrams” family of Kansas. Yes, the Steve Abrams that was on the Kansas State Board of Education that thought evolution wasn't such a good thing to teach in science classes in public school. So I have seen a few things change in the past few years in my life and in the current cultural discussion. I may go into that later but…Continue
Of course I would insist that any course on world religion or religion
in general have a section on atheists. It is clear that the atheist
community has something to say about a great many number of subjects.
Everything from climate change to fair…
