If so, what were you doing for them to say such a thing?My mother was told she would be going to hell if she didn't donate to the church. That's why she stopped going and I was fortunate enough not…Continue

Hey I'm JD. There's never been any moment in my life that I can remember believing any god. When I was in first or second grade I realized I have a thought process different than most people. I…Continue

"Ed, Your assertion seems irrelevant since "religion = collection of moral rules" is not how any member of a religion would describe why they follow that particular religion."

"The concept and use of morals in a group setting predates religion by thousands of years. Our primitive ancestors figured out it's necessity as a social tool. I think the discovery of beer and wine aided the development of religion. -tongue in…"

"This is incredibly naive. Theists view God is the explanation of moral ontology, human value, purpose, aesthetics, design, contingency, origins etc. Religion is just people's reaction to God. To make religion unnecessary you have to show God…"

Religion is Oil

Perhaps we needed it, perhaps we could have managed without it, but since the discovery of oil our economy has relied on it. Our society has been (literally) fuel by oil. It has done wonders for our world and the impact of oil cannot be disputed. As great of a use as oil has been in our short history, it has now become detrimental to use it. These days it is destroying our world. Sure, we once relied on this fossil fuel, but now it's time to start using an alternative energy source.This doesn't…See More

Do people truly believe in satan and hell? Doesn't seem so...

Posted on March 30, 2012 at 8:26am 4 Comments

I don't think many people believe in the devil. They'll go on and on and on about how great god is and how awesome heaven is going to be, but do they truly believe in hell? I don't think so.



You hear a story about a son coming out to his parents, either as gay or as an atheist. What's the first conclusion you're going to draw from the story before he gets into it? Probably that the parents cut off ties with them/want nothing to do with their son anymore.



Think about it.…

Homosexuality is an unnatural choice

Posted on February 16, 2012 at 5:41pm 5 Comments

Homosexuality is an unnatural choice.

It's an argument we've probably all heard before, that homosexuals are unnatural. This is completely false. In this blog I'll talk about what is and is not natural and why homosexuality is not a choice.

Everything we do is within nature. Humans have this idea that because we live in cities we are somehow above nature. This is false. We are just one species out of over a million others living on this blue marble we call Earth. Literally…

Science, the little brother.

Posted on February 10, 2012 at 8:00am 0 Comments

People laugh at science and some of the theories that come out of it. They think they know all the answers because their holy books tell them what they want to know. The truth is modern science hasn't been around nearly long enough for this to be fair.

Religion is like the annoying big brother who has been playing a video game for the past three months without getting through level 3. Science would be the little brother who comes along and beats level 7 after a week of playing.…
