first of all, im new at this, i have never worked a blog before so, i really dont know how this works, sorry in advance.
i have some trouble trying to help people understand my reasons for being an atheist, i try and try to explain it with scientific facts, books, writers, just to let them know that its not a whim or an intempt to be different as i've been told many times! but people dont even try to comprehend, its not easy to be an atheist when everyone else thinks you are joking!…Continue

*For the protection of my family members and friends, I have changed their names.*
I am an atheist.
In the simplest terms this means that I don’t believe in God.
However, it wasn’t always this way.
It was the early winter of 1988. Christmas…Continue

From my blog:
During my adventures through the mysterious evo-devo circus freakshow known as childhood, I found myself encountering a lot of science fiction stories and art from 1950s-1970s. Old issues of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction that I recovered from the dump were just as interesting to my larval mind as pornography.
The one cover that I…

what do you all think of atheists being members of the military? I've met quite a few people that have had problems with it. All comments are welcome, good and bad. Just don't be stupid about it.
Recently I've been hearing the Tea Party speak of a bloated Department of Education. There are complaints that students are not performing as well. Questions are raised about how the Catholic Schools are performing better than public schools and for less money. So of course the Department of Education and Big Government are the problems. This, and homeschooling in general, is about religion.
By the numbers, Catholic schools appear to cost less and get better results than…Continue
The Ancestor's Trail http://www.ancestorstrail.net/ (see also the Think Atheist events page) was inspired by Richard Dawkins’ book the 'Ancestor's Tale' and combines atheism, biodiversity, walking and evolution. Effectively it is a secular pilgrimage celebrating our shared ancestry with all life. This is the second Trail but the event remains at a vulnerable stage. Currently the event is 'booking'…Continue

A friend of mine recently turned me on to this incredible site, Primordial Soop. Its hosts, Deon Barnard, Suzanne Patterson, Basil Polydorou, and Brian Coughlan are all intelligent, well-spoken, and well-read South Africans or former South Africans who hold biweekly debates around South African…Continue

It never ceases to amaze me how much believers want to convince me that they are not “blind followers”, that they have come to their religious beliefs through reason, just like me. No, I’m not going to refute the claim that atheism is a religion here. That will have to be another blog. What I want to address here is that people want me to believe that they have used reason, not “blind faith”, to come to religion. They say that they use logic and find Christ.
Now, I should start…Continue
I saw this post from a friend on FB:
I believe in Jesus Christ. One Facebooker has challenged all believers to put this on their wall. The Bible says, if you deny Me in front of your peers, I will deny you in front of my Father. This is a simple test. If you love Jesus and you are not afraid to show it, re-post this. I proudly did and GOD is always there no matter how bad your troubles are here on earth
First of all, I'm not anti-semitic nor anti-jew.. I'm just an arab.…Continue
