Putting Abandoned Quebec Churches to Good Use

The Days When The Church Ruled

This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window. Yet I was told that you were going to build one more. I said the scheme is good, but where are you going to find room? They said, we…

Egyptian Atheist risks her life and poses nude for freedom and human rights!

I absolutely admire this young brave lady and her boyfriend for standing up against tyranny. In a country that has Islamic fervor, these brave young individuals have sent a statement to those who value freedom to not be afraid of speaking up for your values. And what are those values? FREEDOM. Deciding what to do with your life and how to express yourself. I stand with these brave young souls for 110% - and this is coming from an…

Why are Christians conservative?

Whether it's a well-known concept or not, the hypocrisy of modern Christians is startling. Well, not startling when you realize (to even their admittance) that they do not read their own Bible. But startling to us who have, and have gleaned from its pages some positive things.


Don't get me wrong, the Old Testament is worth being burned (and as a hard-core reader, who faints when the page of a book is torn, that's something for me to…

Pope to speak at the German Bundestag in 2011

Pope Benedikt XVI. has been invited to speak out in the German "Bundestag" (aka Parliament) later this year.

Most notably ALL parties present in the Bundestag supposedly support his visit and feel honored to have him as 32nd guest speaker.

Only two members of the green party started to complain and wanted a debate concerning this but they were silenced by the leadership of the green party.

At least thats what currently is told by the …

Pope's letter protects church, not its victims

The Pope’s letter on child sexual abuse holds lessons for civic society. What he writes to Catholics about religion is a matter between him and them. But the Catholic church also operates within civic…

We Have a Lot of Work to Do as Atheists

Bear with me now. This is not going to seem relevant for a while, but I do have a point.

The Melbourne Atheist Convention is just two weeks away and there is a flurry of dieting (not just women either!), clothes buying and hair fluffing going on in anticipation of meeting people we've only met on line and who, we fear, think we are a lot more attractive than we actually are! I have a feeling that Australia's spanx sales have gone through the…

Myself vs myself vs fiction...

I have been struggling of late, to understand religion and belief, asking myself the question...

Why do people feel the need to believe in fictions?

This past weekend my mom said something very telling to me that I think struck at the heart of my personal dilemma for the past few months.

"We (my family) did not need Religion, the way others families did."

To put some context around myself and this post (I warn you its a bit of a ramble, if you want… Continue
