It's been a battle, having this as an identity. People think its a contradiction of terms. Atheist and Pagan, like the two can't coincide, like they are .... mutually exclusive or something. Well, I'm here to say they are not. Cause first off, no one said that being a pagan required you be a polytheistic believer or a wiccan dual theistic believer. There is no template, there is no dogma, there is no book except what you claim as your own. For me, being a pagan is…Continue
Greetings fellow non-theists!
First thing you gotta understand about this coming out story is that BOTH of my parents are ordained Christian ministers. Second you gotta realize that I already came out to her as a bisexual, a bit before I was ready, but at least I'm out now, even though it felt wrong, because I feel more .... homosexual than bisexual, but that's beside the point.
I am friends with my mom on facebook, since she lives in a different state. And we…Continue
As I write this, I am enjoying a nice ice cold cola. You might call it a victory cola. Let me tell you why.
This afternoon I got into a very heated argument with a member of the ODOH concerning my licensure. During this exchange I told him that " his program was unconstitutional because of its requirement for the teaching of"religious history" of tattooing".…Continue

As we enter the "myth" season of the year, its time to look at all the wonderful things that are going on in the secular movement.
First, the movement is going strong. A lot of new faces are showing up at secular "Meet-up" events all over the nation.
Second, There are a lot more "Camp Quests" opening all over the place. This is a great sign! Its important that we teach children that its "OK" not to believe in God.
Third, American Atheists is…Continue

Num fórum de discussão, no Yahoo! Respostas, um debate bastante pertinente foi levantado e quero destacar dois comentários feitos por ateus que me impressionaram pelo nível de realismo e franqueza de suas palavras. http://conservadoresateus.blogspot.com.br/2012/10/a-modinha-adolescente-do-ateismo-e-o.html

I came to Atheist Nexus for friends and community with fellow freethinkers. I have found some of the warmest, kindest, most understanding people here. They are like an internet family I sit with each night, and sometimes during the day while I work from home, and I could not be happier to have found them. However, something is missing.
I took three years off dating to get a degree, find myself, figure out what I want in a relationship. I've done that now, and I plan to leave the bible…Continue
I did something I rarely do at a debate—I lost my temper. Normally, I can let ignorance roll like water from a duck’s back, but sometimes there are such stunning and dazzling displays of dunce-hood that make it hard to catch…Continue
Prince of Darkness revealed as just a goof-off.
I want to thank everyone for their support. I feel very welcome. I am receiving a lot of support from new found friends as well. Although I have not the courage to overtly state my opinion to everyone in my family, I also think it is not necessary that they all need to know right away. I have been very open about it in public and most of those people are either indifferent, agnostic or atheist themselves. I am a little shocked by this realization. I was under the impression that so…Continue
I know I'm behind the times but, I just saw the Debate(?) between Matt Slick and
Matt Dillahunty. I have to admit that Matt is Slick. I don't know about other people but,
their debate, to me, was weird. Slick appeared to try, exceptionally hard, to win the
debate through confusion and get Dillahunty to admit something. See I'm confused.
But, true to form, Dillahunty slammed Slick at every point. But Slick seemed unable
to absorb the Logical, Rational and Common Sense…

There’re many more reasons not to believe in the doctrines of organized religion. These are ten of my favorites, not necessarily in the order listed. You can probably think of many more.
1. If God is all-knowing, he knows the future before an event happens. So before a baby is born, God knows if it’s going to hell or not. If the baby is predestined to go “there” and God allows it to happen, we have to question if the Divine One is all-good. I wonder if anyone ever…Continue

Last time: I blazed through the observation that a-theism and an-archy share certain similarities, both in how each word is defined, and how each idea is redefined by its critics in order to dismiss either without addressing the problems each poses for ethics. I concluded by mentioning that these redefinitions serve to cut each idea off from the moral center of the individual. This time, I'll clarify what I mean by that, and introduce my thesis - tentatively one could call this a theory of…Continue

I know my intro post wasn't very clear. Let me start by laying out the scene a little better. About a month ago I moved from el Valle in Albuquerque, NM to a farm in the St. Francis Mountains (if they can be called that with a straight face) south of St. Louis, where I live with my GF and her grandma, who lost her husband a few months before. Oh yeah, plus our three dogs, three inside cats, three outside cats, and two inside birds. We don't count outside birds. :D
My GF -- let's call…Continue
