Favorite Quotes

The goal of life is living in aggreement with nature.

I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world. - Richard Dawkins

Animals do not have gods, they are smarter than that. - Ronnie Snow

George Bernard Shaw –"Animals are my friends…and I don't eat my friends"

"The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man."
—Charles Darwin

Do not pray in my school, and I will not think in your church. Unknown

Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or a fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature part of nature. Carl Sagan

Minds are like parachutes, they both work best when open. Thomas R.Dewar

Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us. Earl Nightingale

Goldern Globes

Posted on January 17, 2011 at 8:14am 5 Comments

I don't usually watch the Golden Globe Awards, but I caught Ricky Gervais's comment at the end.  It was great! 

"Thank God for making me an Atheist".  I thought there would be a comment on the news about this, but there was not.


This is something I read on line, Ricky Gervais said;

"Why don’t I believe in God? No, no no, why do YOU believe in God? Surely the burden of proof is on the believer. You started all this. If I came up to you and said, “Why don’t you…


Church Service to Offer Worship Services for Dogs

I stumbled upon this and thought some of you would find this amusing. Another way for the church to bring money in. This made me laugh. What will they think of next?

This House Believes

Posted on April 15, 2010 at 2:21pm 11 Comments

I was walking the dogs with my husband yesterday. One of the houses down the street had a sign on their door, “This House Believes”. I said, “Look they have immaginary friends, Nuts”. If I were to hang a sign on my door, “This House Does Not Believe”, I bet you this would get a reaction. Why is it okay for Christians to have their saintly statues on their lawns and signs on their doors. When a proud Atheist displays their thoughts, we…


Atheist Rapture Pet Rescue

Posted on April 6, 2010 at 10:03am 1 Comment

I find this amusing that people will pay Atheists to "care for the pets of the righteous when the rapture comes". I guess if I were dying, I would want to find my dogs a home. To shell out $110 because your dog is not going to heaven when the rapture comes is a little crazy to me. The link is below if you want to check it out.…

Hi Cheryl. My name is Gaytor and I'm a moderator here at TA. I'm checking out the Muse Music Video that you have put up and I'm inclined to disapprove it. We have tried to generally keep music video's off our video page because with 5000 members we will get some that are fanatics about certain groups or types of music and then we never get to content, or content gets buried.
What you could do is start a discussion about the song and why it moves you. I have a post on free thought songs for people to put up their favorites (not wanting to be self-serving but there may be songs there that you like) as well. So unless a song has some specific reference to free thought (the spirit of this song fits) we aren't allowing them for now. I hope the you understand and I have personally appreciated your participation in the site since you have joined. Let me know if you have any questions.
