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

Started this discussion. Last reply by MikeLong Jan 28, 2014. 276 Replies

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…

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

Posted on February 10, 2013 at 11:52pm 0 Comments

Crosspost from here:

Dear Christian,

Well, you've heard it said... and I imagine many of you have said it yourself, exasperated with some atheist complaint about prayer in school or a creche scene in front of a courthouse:  "It's freedom of religion not freedom from religion."

Well, actually it is both; you cannot…

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 :-)
