I am an American.
On top of that I am also a Texan.
I was born in Texas and can trace my family coming to Texas in the 1850’s.
Most of my family came from the United Kingdom. The rest came from Europe.
Some have been in the United States since the early 1700’s. Some fought in the American Revolution against England.
For what I can tell, they all were “Christians” of some sort or another.
I am an Atheist.
I’ve been an Atheist since the age of six.… Continue

So I work at a hotel where we have a mix of US and International workers. Last night a girl from Bulgaria and a guy from the US who used to be in the Marines started talking about religion. The American guy said something about Jesus saving his life by sending him to the army, and the Bulgarian girl said "You actually believe in that crap?" He said, "What crap?" She said, "The Bible". He said, "Yes, it's the word of God" The Bulgarian girl walked away. I think she lost respect for the guy. It… Continue

Estus Pirkle presents the REAL reason to believe: because God is some kind of horrible monster who created a system where people who go to the wrong Christian church end up burning and have constant diarrhea due to intestinal parasites--which is interesting because there are already people in the "wrong church" who are already dying of constant diarrhea. So maybe those hippies who said "hell is here on… Continue

“The ideological glue binding together this wide assortment of people is a mixture of four ingredients: a deep-seated mistrust of government officials; an obsessive hatred for federal authority; a belief in far-reaching conspiracy theories; and a feeling that Washington bureaucrats have utterly discarded the U.S.… Continue

Some of you may remember that I received a Facebook message from a Christian friend of mine awhile back, wherein she took it upon herself to tell me how much God loves me and all that. I responded to her in kind, explaining as nicely as I could why I no longer believe. I never got a response from her after that. Continue

I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1989 to a mixed up family of nondenominational and Lutheran Christians.
I'd never understood religion, and for the most part, the concept of God frightened me. This stranger I'd never met with fantastical powers to destroy and create, was watching me and everyone else at all times? Pointing a fat, accusing finger with a scornful brow and… Continue

Sometimes I wonder why I bother blogging about religion and atheism. Does it really matter if I read and talk about religions I don't even believe in anyway? I used to believe in God, after all, so why I don't just let bygones be bygones, leave religion alone, and post about something a little more entertaining, like funny animal videos on YouTube
! It'd be a lot cheerier, and I'm sure I'd get a lot more… Continue

Today I received a message on Facebook from a friend that I knew in YWAM (she's French, so her English isn't perfect):
Girl !!! I've been thinking of you lately? How are you?? I remembered clearly the day in india when we preached and you found the courage to share what happened to you and how God was restoring you. I admired so much what you did that day !!! I've seen on your status that you were not so crazy about all of this anymore. And i wanted to share with you that… Continue

Here is the cover of the most recent print edition of The Onion

since it doesn't appear to be in the online version. I think it pretty much sums up the situation for all major media outlets in the US (but ironically enough, not The Onion itself since they often publish irreligious… Continue

As discussed in my previous blog, the books my aunt promised to send arrived today. She sent me Josh McDowell's The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict
and Answers to Tough Questions Skeptics Ask About the Christian Faith
. I have just over three weeks off from college for the holidays and I hope to have the books read within that time. I will also be posting my thoughts, questions, and interesting quotes from the books on here for your entertainment.
Thanks to everyone… Continue

I have been very open about being an atheist on Facebook and Twitter. I'm rather open about it in real life too, except to my parents. My dad's family is fairly religious and my aunt, who has seen all of my posts on atheism, has taken it upon herself to bring me back to God.
For those who don't know, I was raised Christian and was very involved in the church, to the point of being a missionary in India for a short time. After returning from the mission, I began to question my faith… Continue

My stepson is a devout Catholic. It bothers him that I have an atheist website and a presence on several atheist forums. He has an account on my member forum, at AtheistExile.com, and follows the conversations there as a lurker instead of a participant.
He told me I should try prayer, just for a little while, to see if they come true or not.
I never approach my family members on the subject of religion but if they approach me about it, I don't hold back unless I see them… Continue

First of all, I'm new here and just would like to say hello.
Now on to the blog entry.
Christian atheism is a belief system in which God is rejected but the teachings of Jesus are followed in one's everyday life.
- 1. the assertion of the unreality of God for our age, including the understandings of God which have been a part of traditional Christian theology
2. the insistence upon coming to grips with contemporary culture as a necessary feature of…

I'm sure most have us have heard of the Iowa Freethinkers
atheist bus ads. Its too bad they were just so damn offensive. The reaction that has been prompted would initially lead one to believe they crucified Jesus and laughed. Its not like we did a "Christian" ad. One of those would probably be full of how atheists are going to be damned by the God of Abraham. Instead here is the advertisement as it appeared on the buses:…
