"Why do we care?" - from Atheist Climber blog

From Atheist Climber blog

Logic. Reason. Rationality.

These are the 3 tools I use on a daily basis to make sense of the world. Without these tools, the world decays into a mess of suppositions and superstitions.

This means that whenever I look at the world, I have a lifetime's worth of knowledge by which I can make assessments on what is… Continue

My Christmas Message from "An Atheist's Perspective" - Via Atheist Climber Blog

“I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.” - Frank Lloyd Wright

Every year at around this time I feel the need to reflect on the year passed, and be thankful. While this may be trite, I do see the end of years celebrations as an important time, a time for reflection. We all feel it to some degree.

Why is it that we feel the need to reflect and be thankful? It's a weird sensation, because I don't have a God to thank for my existence. I don't believe in a… Continue

In Heaven Everything Is Fine - From Atheist Climber

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is."

Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

As you may have read previously on my blog, I'm a big fan of perspective. I like to have an idea of where I am and who I am, what it means to be alive and what it means to be… Continue

1) Note that many fundamentalist groups are predominantly concerned with control of public behaviour- how people dress, whether they go to religious meetings... Even though their religious doctrine often is primarily concerned with personal faith or commitment, and in some cases explicitly condemns the temptation to establish onself as judge of others' behaviour (this is particularly salient in fundamentalist Christianity and Islam).

2) Some… Continue

My Response And Thoughs On Kirk Camerons Video "Origin Into Schools"

1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part. However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue

SERIOUS QUESTION: "Could Science Make Use Of Our Naturally Produced Chemicals To Better Our Planet?"

Well I'd like to state first off that I am NOT superman and am NOT trying to lie about any of this. What would I gain from any of it anyways? However, a recent Blog/Forum post got me thinking and I guess I should share this with you all *at least* because... well, I don't think anyone has seriously thought about this yet. I've kept this little talent of mine to myself ever since I learned I had it because I felt weird and personally thought it was stupid. However, after a… Continue

Teaching Creation and Intelligent Design as Science

I am so tired of hearing people argue that creation and intelligent design should be taught in science classes alongside evolution. This would be a devastating move. First off, America is already fallen so far behind the rest of the world in terms of science education. Now that we are starting to make some improvements in this sector the religious idiots want to teach creation and intelligent design as science. There is no evidence for the existence of god or creation. The same must be applied… Continue

Getting it less wrong

Getting it less wrong

A very interesting subject. Arrogance seems to be a underlying aspect of scientific explanations to those who are faith based thinkers. They seem to immediately perceive science reasoning as an attack. They may infer you are questioning that they are less intelligent in some way to gravitate to faith instead of science for an explanation of the natural world?

I have a lot of questions and so few answers.… Continue

Unfair Criticism of PZ Myers and other Secular Scientists

On July 31, 2008 posted an articled titled: What's wrong with science as religion, by Karl Giberson. Giberson, who has a PhD in physics and is the author of “Saving Darwin: How to be a Christian and believe in Evolution” was responding to a July 24th web posting by PZ Meyers on Meyers’ blog Pharyngula. ( In the web posting Meyers stuck a rusty nail in a communion cracker, and then used the nail to impale pages of the Qur’an and Richard Dawkin’s “The… Continue

Science Trumps Religion RE: AIDS Immigration Law

Last week the US congress finally managed to reverse a law prohibiting anyone with the AIDS/HIV virus from visiting or immigrating to the US. The Law was established in 1987 and codified into law in 1993, when conservative ideology labeled AIDS the "gay" plague despite scientific and medical information suggesting the illness was much more widely spread

The illness was used in conservative pulpits in America to preach hate against gay men, but the Catholic Church responded to the… Continue
