The Homosexuality Debate

Pro-gay: There is nothing wrong with homosexuality.

Anti-gay: AIDS!

Pro-gay: AIDS is also caused by dirty needles and heterosexual sex.

Anti-gay: Gay people are more promiscuous, so they make AIDS a bigger problem.

Pro-gay: AIDS is spread mostly by straight people.

Anti-gay: Gay sex is inherently more risky than heterosexual sex.

Pro-gay: You're a bigot.

Anti-gay: You're immoral/damned.

I'm tired of seeing the same debate a thousand…

For the youth group kids...

Just for fun, here's sort of a flashback for us 90s kids (probably not applicable outside the US—or maybe?)

http://www.buzzfeed.com/jessicamisener/33-ways-you-know-you-were-a-youth-group-kid

I figure since so many of us grew up Christians, these might be amusing to remember. To be honest, I didn't get in quite this deep myself, with all the Christian-alternative fads…

A lame excuse for a Christian apologetic.

I have over the last few years steadily lost respect for William Lane Craig as an apologist. His voice grates on my ears more and more. His willingness to accept genocide as acceptable because his god commanded it is pathetic and I have shook my head in bewilderment at the acceptance such statements get from his herd of followers. So when I saw this video I said to myself “Don’t do it man, you will only get annoyed”. Of…

Brand New Steps

Many things have happened since my last post. The growth of my non religious mind being first and foremost. Its quite amazing how quickly the mind becomes deprogrammed once a perosn opens themselves up to the possibilities. I can even say that I myslef have been guilty of continuing myths and legends just by the everyday words that I speak. A God bless you here or a exclamation of "Jesus" there. One never realizes these things until one has awakened from the mind numbing propaganda of God that… Continue

What Is An American: An Atheist View

I didn't start out as an atheist. Like many Hispanics here in America, I was indoctrinated at an early age. I remember quoting scripture at the age of 7-8 on the public train in New York City. I was kind of like a monkey doing palor tricks for the delight of strangers that shared the metal wheeled rocket. Life was simple. My idea at a young age of what it was to be an american was simple.

As I got older of course things became a little more complicated. Hormones, social diversity and… Continue

Christians, Stop Using the "Well there were eyewitnesses" Defense

As I enter more and more into the debate world, there is a peculiar phenomena that I find when debating Christians. It is the belief that eyewitness testimony is at all reliable. Especially so when it comes to the divinity of Yeshua (Jesus). Unfortunately this is completely wrong when it comes to proving the bibles validity. There is no presupposition here. It's pure fact from study and research. Let's take a look at the account that Christians give when it comes to the Bibles historic content… Continue

Why Is God Surprised By Events in The Bible If He Is Omniscient

In attempts to further my own biblical understanding, I was going through Genesis and something popped out that I hadn't noticed before. Sometimes we as atheist get caught up in the "major" debatable issues, but some times forget the little things in the bible that make it even funnier when you actually think about what it means and says about the Judeo-Christan God. Let's look at this line from Genesis 6:5-6 in the KJV:



"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth,… Continue
