Corey Lord replied to Cathy Cooper's discussion 'Next time you hear a Christian complain about the government...'
"What I think is really great about this is how so many Christians out there say that this country was founded as a Christian nation but if that were the case shouldn't we still be under English rule.  Since the Colonialists rebelled,…"

Corey Lord replied to Adam Weber's discussion 'Why Not Deism?'
"Its very simple.  I don't believe that any god exists because I have no proof of it.  Therefore, if I don't believe in any god then I can't be a Deist either.  You see Deism is no different than any other religion out…"

Corey Lord commented on brian's blog post 'Please consider...your life depends on it.'
"Brian, what I find to be interesting is the need that you have to think there is more than just this life. Why did that make you feel empty? I am fine with the fact that I am here for a finite period of time and then I die and nothing else happens.…"

Corey Lord commented on Rich Meredith's blog post 'Some thoughts about those of us of no belief…'
"I agree with you totally Rich! Thank you for such a brilliant post. Hopefully more atheists can see it this way and make our cause more meaningful."

Dave G commented on Corey Lord's blog post 'Of Atheists and Anti-theists'
"Indeed, proudfootz. What isn't mentioned in the article is that the author, Barbara Bradley Hagerty has a stake in portraying a 'scism' in atheism that does not exist. Divide and conquer, as they say. Here is some information on Ms…"

proudfootz commented on Corey Lord's blog post 'Of Atheists and Anti-theists'
"I think the idea of a 'schism' among atheists is cooked up by the same people who view atheism as a 'religion'. It suits them down to the ground to portray those who are not religious in terms of better used to describe the…"

Galen commented on Corey Lord's blog post 'Of Atheists and Anti-theists'
"Dawkins and Hitchens have often made this point and I'll make it now as well. Why does religion get a free pass where no other crazy ridiculous belief would? Why are we expected to play nice and "respect" the other guy's wacky…"

Dave G commented on Corey Lord's blog post 'Of Atheists and Anti-theists'
"Perhaps we need a day specifically to point out the absurdities of religion specifically because religion is usually given a pass when it comes to criticism. People argue about sports, politics, books, movies and every other topic under the sun, but…"

"I could not have said it any better. There is no schism. We all have concluded the same thing. It's just that some of us have moved from passivity to activism. It is, in a way, progress. I used to be very nonchalant about talking to religious…"

"Well to briefly respond about Blasphemy Day, all I have to say is that even using the term Blasphemy eluding to the existence of god so to me it still doesn't make sense. Really we could have a World Atheist Day were atheist are recognized for…"

Dave G commented on Corey Lord's blog post 'Of Atheists and Anti-theists'
"I don't think it is quite that black and white. Not even Blasphemy Day. Sure, many manifestations of Blasphemy Day were immature and childish. Nothing more than trying to 'shock the theists', not really different than a kid putting up…"

Of Atheists and Anti-theists

There has been a lot of discussion lately of a "schism" amongst the atheist movement that I find to be quite disturbing. This so-called schism is between atheists who share the idea that god does not exist and the atheists who are against anything to do with god.Now of course these are pretty broad descriptions so of course I invite discussion on this topic. But here is the thing, this isn't a schism of atheism or some new group called "The New Atheists". This other group are simply…See More

Corey Lord replied to Reggie's discussion 'The Atheist Schism!'
"I think it's more the way a lot of "new atheists" go about discussing their position. The "new atheists" I've chatted with or read usually point out how absurd religion is. That's the wrong way to go about the…"

Corey Lord replied to Reggie's discussion 'Atheist ads to adorn New York subway stations'
"I think this is the best advertisement idea I've come across. Too many atheist advertising does poke at the theists out there whereas what needs to be done is just show the numbers of atheists out there. I mean really we aren't trying to…"

The Pledge and Our Money

Posted on August 27, 2009 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

I just got done answering a poll about whether the US should omit "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, and naturally I said that it should be omitted. To me it isn't just the fact that I don't believe and God or religious figure has a place in the US government but the fact that the general population feels that the current pledge is the original. After proving to the many other people that answered this poll that "Under God" was in fact added in 1954 and showing them what the original… Continue
