It's Not The Hatfield and The McCoys...But It's Pretty Close

You know, I love mug shots where the perps have big grins on their faces. Specifically, the cat ate the canary kind of look. This week’s headlines managed to present one that couldn’t be missed, and dare I say, I think there are even twinkles in the eyes of these men. In the…

The Religious Usurping Of Your Humanity

Nelson Mandela once said,”To deny people their rights is to challenge their very humanity.” Granted, he was referring to the hard to imagine reality of South Africa’s apartheid crisis, but his message can easily be projected onto many cultural crises in the world today.

I have always been keenly aware…

Spiritual Eugenics Really Are A Thing

My eldest son and I were making the daily commute to school this past week, and we ended up on the discussion of extending human life to hundreds of years. He’d overheard a news article about slowing down the aging process, which got him thinking. Naturally, I’m somewhat against extending human…

Evangelical doctrine #2 "supporting scriptures" GOD

The following is from

2.  God.  We believe there is no God but one:  the infinite Designer, Creator, and Sustainer of all existence in this or any universe--from eternity past to eternity future.  God’s nature is triune--three perfect and eternal persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--who are one, in being as well as in purpose.

Evangelical doctrine #1 "supporting scriptures"

Lets start with number one. 

Looking at the "supporting" Scripture I see no way to claim that it is stating the bible as put to gather by the The First Council of Nicaea in 325 CE would be the final word. about 292 years or so after the events in the most recent stories in the book.  

you know missing books from the Jewish…

Why You Can Be Certain Deities Do Not Exist

Whether you used to believe in Jesus or Yahweh, Mohammed or Allah, Krishna or Zeus, I can assure you that none exist. I will even take you further than that and guarantee they do not exist. It is all about your perception of the concept that a god/goddess is. Not a…

Should Atheists support other problems with religion and humanity besides just the lack of proof for god?

  I was listening to the Godless Bitches podcast.

Should Atheists support other problems with religion and humanity besides just the lack of proof for god?

In my opinion every Atheist should at least think about being tolerant of everything that the churches exclude. L.B.G.T. woman's rights civil rights pollution etc. Or they have not fully thought out why they are atheists in the first place,yet. Being so…

Moving Forward in a post-religious world

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…

My Atheism Doesn’t Need Evolution

Atheists are often portrayed as die hard believers in evolution, and atheism is quite often portrayed as being dependent upon believing in the validity of evolution. But you know what? Some people, such as myself, did not need to rely on Darwin to steer our courses off the path of religion and onto the path of reason.




The bible was not created by a god nor inspired by the word of any god. It was written by a number of people who tried…

Apologists of Circumcision

The Columbus, Ohio newspaper, The Republic, just today printed the story Religion: Battle Over Circumcision, describing the battle that is erupting in San Francisco over a November 8 ballot that would ban male circumcision. While much of the article tries to distract readers from the issue by making reference to Foreskin Man and how it incites the anger of religious groups like Jews. I think the real issue is not what the author of “Foreskin Man” is up to, but the fact that there is an…
