Ethical standards in different parts of the world

Ethics can be defined as the rules or regulations established by the society or the government in order to achieve peace and overcome problems as much as possible. That's how I define ethics personally. I always thought that if the ethics established did not achieve such objectives, then these are not ethics in the first place..Only a bunch of stupid blind rules.

Every country on this planet has it's own ethical standards due to the fact that every country has it's customs and…

Why are atheists smart?

    I dealt with different people with different points of views and different ideologies. When it comes to the atheists..They are exceptionally smart! I thought about the reason for so long..Until i found my own answer. As an atheist myself.. I am not considered a smart guy at all Lol but being an atheist is not an easy thing. Most of us ended up being atheists after reading about different religions and comparing these religions with other religions. As well as comparing all these…

Saying Goodbye

The word “goodbye” has many aliases, from “so long” to “see ya later alligator”. The first time I heard the phrase “Godspeed”, I wondered if it was faster than a flash or two shakes of a lamb's tail...or was it three shakes, can't remember.…

Science vs Religion

     There has been a very long war between science and religion over the past centuries. This war has split the world in to 2 halves,people who believed that science is more legit while others believed otherwise..This is absolutely normal for me...everyone should think of whatever they want to think of..we are all different and we all have a specific way of thinking...But the thing is...Is it normal to have contradicted ways of thinking?? Let me give you all an example,in one of the…

Conventional Wisdom

NOT GOING TO SPECULATE:



You aren't? Why, what is the problem. You believe in a fairy tale world utterly lacking in foundation and yet you are opposed to speculation?

DEFINITION OF INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT:

This definition is demonstrably false and yet it is adduced at the drop of a deuce as though its wisdom is beyond criticism.

EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON:

Another sickening saw. The…

How I Discovered I Was An Atheist

It has taken over 60 years, but I finally realized that I no longer believed in God.  An unusual aspect of my "awakening" was that it was the result of writing a book "God's Gifts To Us All."  I made a YouTube video of my journey at:  https://youtu.be/O3UHmF815rM

I joined Think Atheist to share my story and see if others had a similar experience.

I would value any coaching how I might share my experience with others who may not as yet…

Lifting The Veil

Recently, I showed a YouTube video that was posted here to a relative who had been disfellowship from the Jehovah's Witnesses organization for several years. We barely made it forty minutes into the video before my relative declared that they "didn't want to go back to that place" after seeing evidence of the horrendous covering up…

How many of you think certain religious tenets could be useful to atheists?

I found a blog post from Huff Post Religion where this dude thinks that certain religious tenets could benefit atheists if we'd just open our eyes to the obvious and not be so damn stubborn and confrontational all the time. At least that's how I took it. I think that guy is an idiot. I don't think atheists need to "borrow" anything from the religious. I…

How I became an atheist

Everyone had a story that made them change their ways of thinking,beliefs or general ideologies. The same obviously went the same with me.. So I said before that I was born in a Muslim country with a Muslim family that made me believe in their god and religion... I was like them in every way until the beginning of the second year of high school.

So I used to go to school,attend class and go back home and study and start all over the second day...I do not really deal with people due to…

Este lado de la linea - la bendecida

Es la diferencia entre esclavitud y libertad

Que se nace a un lado de la línea entre paraíso e infierno.

El color de su piel se rompe la bondad

Y te miran como si fuera de otro mundo

De la fe en que se nazca nadie te lo puede quitar

Y la lucha…

First Time Reason Rally Attendee

I'm planning on going to Reason Rally this year. It'll be nice to be around like minded people, if a group of Atheists, Agnostics, Freethinkers, etc can ever be called like minded, for a change.



I love my friends dearly, but some of the believers among them just don't get me. I've seen some openly call Secular people fools for not believing in their personal beliefs. When politely confronted, they usually either go nuclear at me or delete me from their friends only to add me back…

Narrow minds strike again!

So basically 3 days ago in my country, there was a metal concert in a place near of me and the cops stopped the concert and arrested some fans and accused them of being "Devil Worshipers". No metal bands perform in the middle east but  there are some local bands here that sing songs from famous bands. I really got pissed off from such news because I am a metal fan myself and I never even thought about worshiping Satan, I do not even believe in him damn it lol... anyway, the mass media kept…

Is this just cuckoo? Is this just the radical opposite of what trump is doing?

Like the old days...student activism has come back with a vengence. On the BBC:

Harvard abolishes 'master' in titles in slavery row

Harvard University in the US is going to remove the word "master"…

Respecting the ultimate right

Canada is joining the very small club of countries that do not force a human to suffer needlessly in agonizing pain and decide when they go. They are about to respect their own Canadian charter of human rights to its final conclusion: letting people make their own decisions about their lives and their bodies. Many of us see this as a…
