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

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…

Thanks for the friend request. I love what I've seen of the Open Letter to Christians. I don't have time to finish it right now, but I'll be back :)

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 :-)
