Talking About Atheism - An Experience

Just over 23 years ago, I left my little Midwest town to head for the west coast. Everywhere I looked, it was "god this," and "jesus that," and always a sprinkle of hell, fire, brimstone and eternal damnation. The negativity weighed heavily upon me, to the point that I'd feel great depression and despair. When I left, I figured that I'd never encounter any of these people again.Enter the world of Facebook.Unlike MySpace, where strangers gather each other to boost friend counts, Facebook is the…See More

Dan Snell commented on Laura's blog post 'Make War, Not Love: Violence, Sexuality, and Christianity.'
"I think back to the horror movies that were popular when I was a teen. Movies like "Friday the 13th" had one very clear message: If you have sex, get stoned, or drink alcohol, you'll die a brutal death at the hands of Jason. It seemed…"

Sniz commented on Dan Snell's blog post 'Response: Why Do Atheists Worry About God?'
"Sometimes I do find it rather interesting that, as a group of people who do not believe in god, we sure do spend a lot of time talking about him. I wouldn't have to think about him so much if my country wasn't full of religious nutjobs who…"

Dan Snell commented on tehKenny Dixon's blog post 'How Atheists can win'
"I also think it can be done. Atheists should check out "Letting Go of God" by Julia Sweeney (it's cheapest on iTunes). She was a believer who was heavily indoctrinated as a child. The audio book illustrates how she WANTS to let go of…"

Dan Snell commented on Morgan Matthew's blog post 'Reaching out'
"A few years ago, I was participating in a discussion, when a prominent Atheist (whom I won't name) told me that it is virtually impossible to get Atheists to organize. It had always stuck with me. I recently wrote to him on Facebook to ask what…"

Audio Book Review: "Letting Go of God" by Julia Sweeney

I saw this CD set at a book store a while back for over $20. It caught my eye, but didn't seem like it would be worth the price. But when I saw it for way cheaper on iTunes, I decided to give it a go.Sweeney's background is typical is some ways. She was given a very strong religious upbringing. Although she sees the hypocrisy behind the rules of her faith as a child, she still believes in god. This illustrates the mental pounding her parents gave her, in an effort to "instill values."But as she…See More

"I always knew the Christian god was a woman. How else does one explain the heavy flow of blood 'round the Earth? People are just passed eggs."

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I'm a drummer, comedian, and Atheist who is standing up for the cause. As a child, I was forced to pray before lunch at school, and would receive beatings if I did not conform. I was also punished for being left-handed. They said this made me "the tool of the devil."
Why are you here?
I want a place where I can blog specifically about Atheism and nothing else. I'm interested in setting the record straight about Atheist fallacies, thoughts, and practices.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
I did not leave a religion, but did leave a religious part of the world (the Midwest). The lack of intelligence, combined with blind faith, became unbearable.

Proof That God Is A... WOMAN!

Are you old enough to remember this?



There was a time when TV just shut down for the night. Johnny Carson was on for about 90 minutes, followed by Tom Snyder, then some horrible programming like "Dance Fever." Eventually, there would be something with a title like "Moment of Inspiration." This was a preacher delivering a message for a few minutes. This was followed by The Star Spangled Banner and white noise for a few hours.

I'm Catholic Because...

Posted on February 12, 2009 at 3:28pm 0 Comments

The religious history in my family is simple. Grandpa was a Protestant, while grandma was a Catholic. When they wanted to get married, neither church would recognize the marriage. Grandma noticed that there were church-sanctioned marriages in her circles, where the husband would beat the wife. There were cases of infidelity, alcoholism, and other maladies. But it's a-okay, because they're both Catholic.



They flipped their collective birds at their respective institutions anyway and… Continue
