"Atheists should be militant when it's called for, and tolerant when it is not.  Everyone is entitled to his or her religious beliefs and should not be confronted about them.  But when theists inflict harm on individuals (like the…"

"Elad, like you and your friend, I feel the same way.  Your post is well said, even though it is clear that a number of people take issue with it, but that is the cost for speaking one's mind."

"The important distinction the Tyson-Dawkins dichotomy fails to address (and, which I think both men themselves often fail to address) is that between belief and reason.  It is conceivable for Atheism to be practiced in the same way as a…"

"Tyson doesn't want the hassle and publicity that comes with the type of atheism which Dawkins promotes. It's a bit of a cowardly cop-out in my view. He's probably afraid of the negative connotations associated with…"

"Antitheism already means something. You can't just make up definitions for words. I mean, you can, but it won't mean anything to anybody else."

"I think Richard Dawkins functions well as a strong and decisive figure - not unlike Mrs Thatcher.  How can you be a militant moderate?  That's what Neil deGrasse Tyson needs to be maybe. "

The Non-Militant Atheist

Posted on April 21, 2013 at 7:50am 14 Comments

I have one religious friend.

That's a bad way to start a blog post, because as Kevin Hart once brilliantly said (albeit about black people):

"Nothing is more racist than having one black friend.  Zero black friends is somehow less racist than having one black friend."

He and I get along just fine, thank you very much. He knows I'm an atheist and doesn't bother me about it, and I know he's religious and I don't bother him…

Posted on June 25, 2011 at 7:30am 0 Comments



In the ealy 1920's, a Hebrew poet and intellectual by the name of Berl Katznelson wrote a short segment to commemorate his friends who died in the battle of Tel-Hai, among them the famous Joseph Trumpeldor. The passage, called "Yizkor" ('Remember'), started with the words:

"Remember will the People of Israel the pure souls of his sons and daughters"

The Ramon Tragedy - Dealing with death and mythicism.

Posted on September 13, 2009 at 4:30pm 3 Comments

If there's one thing religion does very well, it's dealing with death and the afterlife. And I'm not talking about death itself, or rather life after death as a concept, but of the way religion helps people deal with the loss of their loved ones. The idea of life after death appeals to the child in us, the… Continue

Good point! The number of nonbelievers in the States is growing--slowly--but a stigma is still attached to atheism here. Unfortunately, our Puritan roots run deep.

Welcome! My mother was Jewish, and my father was Episcopalian--I was the black sheep.

Do you happen to know what percentage of the Israeli population is atheistic?
