Christian College Bans National Anthem

In a bit of a twist, a Christian school has banned the National Anthem. “As a result of a thoughtful, thorough, prayerful period of listening, learning and discerning,” the Goshen College Board of Directors said, “it…

Beware of Islam

 

The recent "victory" claimed by the United States government, the killing of Osama Bin Laden, seems a good thing at first. However, it's really just another poke in the eye of this back and forth between the western world and Islam, (or maybe between Christianity and Islam?) A retaliation is sure to follow, that's just the way it works. So while the American people are celebrating in the street, I'd be running for cover.…

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…

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…

Judgement Day = 5.21.2011 with the world ending in November 2011.  What will these people do when (not if) the world doesn't end 5 months later?

Few High School Biology Teachers Accurately Teach Evolution

I hate to bag on my own colleagues, but the evidence is overwhelming: most high school biology teachers either do not teach evolution or undermine their own teaching by giving nods and winks to creationist ideas. (See Most high school biology teachers don’t endorse evolution, by Valerie…

Facebook Friends

I am not an avid user of Facebook, but I do use it occasionally for events.  After people found out I had finally joined the Facebook hive I started getting friend invites from a whole lot of people.  At first I accepted them all with open arms thinking I'm was the coolest guy on the internet.  But then reality kicked in and I found out that I don't really give a fuck if someone is going to go work out today, or if someone just painted their toenails.  But then there is the worst of it…

Story of Religion

Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it.

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky.

He watches everything you do every minute of every day.

And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do.

And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream,… Continue

Is It Just Me?

Recently, I've found that my patience and manners when dealing with religionists to be nearly absent; in fact, I've been accused of being excessively curt and even belligerent. After reviewing my behavior I found that my critics were right and I must add, quite lenient as I reviewed several recordings where I was not only truculent and abrasive, but downright rude. At first I attributed my behavior to aging, but that was not the reason as I heard the exasperation and tiredness in my voice.… Continue

The Hell With Atheists After the Foxholes

Don’t Do Unto Others As They May Decide to Do Unto You

Guns and Bibles

The crazy keeps on coming...

I find myself in the odd position of being the one in the house defending Christmas. A little background first.



My wife is a fundamentalist Seventh Day Adventist, or more accurately they seem to be some branch of the Seventh Day Adventists. My wife joined another fundamentalist church known as the ICOC about 10 years ago. This turned out to be a cult and they managed to indoctrinate me as well. While it was a truly alarming experience to go through, I think the net result was good. I… Continue

A Christian? A Muslim? An Atheist? So What?

Not surprisingly, the vast majority of those who question Obama’s religious affiliation are those who oppose the president’s political agenda. What is surprising is that his supporters are increasingly questioning his religious affiliation. Read more:… Continue

Go Naked

I feel like that little boy in front of the naked emperor, looking around thinking "Can't anyone see this? What am I missing?" Of course we should ban the Burqa. It is an icon of discrimination. No one defends the wearing of the Burqa on the grounds that it isn’t discrimination; that would be ridiculous. Religious and cultural justifications are also red herrings. Liberty is the…

This is America!

I don't know the ngenral opinion on the ground zero "mosque" here because I haven't been as active as I should be but I know at least 1 (thunderfoo at youtube) atheist has used the argument.



This is not Saudi Arabia this is America! The A in USA doesn't mean Arabia, it means America!

What am I talking about? Among the pathetic arguments against the "mosque" (its a cultural center you ignoramuses) the bigoted idiots spout out is "they don't allow churches in… Continue
