"You are just mad at god"--Are we actually encouraging this by mistake?

You've all heard the claim that we aren't really atheists, we are just mad at god.  (Or you will see such things as "so and so claims to be an atheist.")Today, though I saw an argument in chat with a…Continue

Lobbying - it is SO easy!

Lobbying is simply a fancy word for participation. When most people think about "lobbying the government," or any entity such as the United Nations, most people who are unaware of their own rights would think that you have to already be in a position of power or influence to have your voice heard.This is actually very far from the truth.The truth of the matter is that elected officials WANT to hear from the people they serve. They want to know what the people want, but when no one speaks up,…See More

Surprise! Colorado Springs NOT in the Bible Belt.

http://letreasonreign.wordpress.com/2013/07/27/most-and-least-religious-places/

Unlike what I usually do when I crosspost from my blog (where I simply paste the text in), I'll provide a TL;DR here because I want to highlight the thing I found really surprising.

In a Gallup Poll where they classified people into "very", "moderately" and "non" religious, and did this…

Open Letter to Christians #3: Freedom From Religion? Yes.

Crosspost from here:

Dear Christian,

Thanks for the friend request! Definitely accepted! :-) Can't wait to talk with you more on your philosophical views of religion... although logically there is really very little to go over other than arguments against and reasons why... anyway, you get my drift I think :-)
