What makes the "hardcore" religious so... "hard headed"?
I remember not too long ago watching a news clip that showed two people talking about political parties. No matter how one of them tried to proclaim that either party can be wrong at any time and asked if the other person would side with the right party if the time came, the other kept saying that she would never change her party affiliation, she is a democrat and will be a democrat never a republican.
You are all apparently going to hell or where ever it is you believe the bad guys go.
According to the Christians if you don't follow the bible you will go to hell, according to Islam if you don't follow the Qur’an you will go to Jahannam; Jehovah's witnesses believe that if you are not a Jehovah's witness you will not gain entry to paradise therefore ceasing to be.
All religions believe in different ways of getting to 'Heaven'… Continue

Life-Science has many meanings, one of which is the science and art of living. Yes Gertrude, there is a science behind this existence we experience, and an art form we practice that helps us enhance the science. We make decisions based on known repeatable outcomes: Science. When… Continue

I pray you can make it better down here.
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
but all the people that you made in your image, see
them starving on their feet 'cause they don't get
enough to eat from God, I can't believe in you
Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but... I feel that I should be… Continue
I am so glad I found this community; so glad I have joined.
Already I am seeing other like minded people on this website that think just like me; yep we atheists actually use our brain for thinking unlike non-atheists who just go along with what the church tells them.
I am so sick of religious bullshit going on in the world; we need to not ban religion but take religion out of governments, schools and other places where they can be harmful to the human… Continue
Since the publication of our original article on anal sex and God’s will, we have received several inquiries asking to clarify God’s position concerning oral sex. We are gratified that so many Christians are hungry for the word of the Lord and are actively seeking the Truth so that they may fulfill His plan in all areas of their lives.
Haha, Wow. My last post of my rant against trendy vegans/vegetarians got rather exciting and out of hand. More than likely my fault, but I rather like the people of this site so I took it down as to not offend or alienate anyone on the site that saw it as a personal attack on all people that are vegetarian.
The amount of replies that took away from my post things that I didn't mean was astounding, as I have had this post on other sites and not gotten so much offense. I can only assume that… Continue
Now I am not expected to go into extreme specifics or go into too much detail but just basically throw this out there and let it be know. If you disagree don't be a dick. :P So I hear a lot of people talking about how Militant Atheism is a bad thing for the image of Atheism and I came to one final conclusion:
I mean what is Militant Atheism? Asking to have "God" removed from the pledge? Wasn't that how it originally was? Being against religion? Even… Continue
Currently in the United States "Non Religious" people make up about 20% of the population.
This includes Atheists, Agnostics, Secular non affiliated, No preference, etc. Jews consist of less than 2% of the population of the United States. Mormons less than 2%, Muslims less than 1%. These are the religious groups that the non-religious out number, yet why is it that we are lucky to get 1 or 2 congressmen to represent us? The truth is that essentially every congressman or woman in congress… Continue
GENEVA: Arab and Muslim countries defended Tuesday a resolution they pushed through at the United Nations to have the body's expert on free speech police individuals and news media for negative comments on Islam.
The United States, Canada and some European countries criticized the role reversal for Kenyan legal expert Ambeyi Ligabo, who has reported to the global body on measures by dictatorships and repressive governments to restrict free speech.
One of the first things I notice when the question of God's existence comes up is how very little is discussed as to what God actually IS. It seems to me that if we are to make progress in this debate, we have to take time to actually reconcile our perceptions of what God actually is in order to debate his existence in the first place. In this blog I will present what I believe the concept of God actually IS and why its important to "simplify" our perceptions of God in order to fully appreciate… Continue
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously today that the city of Pleasant Grove, Utah does not have to allow a little known religious group called Summum to install their privately funded monument in the city park, despite the fact that there is already a Ten Commandments monument there.
According to Merriam-Webster, deduction is defined as “the deriving of a conclusion by reasoning; specifically: inference in which the conclusion about particulars follows necessarily from general or universal premises.”
An example of deductive reasoning is as follows:
Premise 1: People cannot see in the dark.
Premise 2: It is dark in caves.
Conclusion: People can’t see in caves.
There’s no arguing about the above example. A person might say that… Continue
