Holy Flying Spaghetti Monster! Is Think Atheist trying to re-convert me back to Islam? Has Google joined hands with Islamic fundies to form a new axis of 'do gooders'?
I am telling all of you. I am not falling for this again. And I ain't going back because I love this life more than my previous one!… Continue

I don't like seeing people being excessively happy about their god when something goes right and then being bitterly angry when something bad goes wrong.
Someone I know said "You should stop bashing us and God. We're passionate for a reason."
Well, how about you guys be passionate about something productive? Like trying to end poverty and world hunger?
If they were as passionate as trying to help people as they were about simply praying for people, shit would get… Continue

Even though I don't live anywhere near the place I grew up, I still have many friendships and other connections to the people who are still there. Most of them I'm friends with on Facebook. I've gotten in the habit recently of just reading over peoples' status updates to see what's new with my old home.
One guy's updates over the past few months have almost driven me over the edge. Here's a sample:
"[name] Is wondering: who has more faith, the Atheist or the Christian?… Continue

In my adolescence, I went to many different churches to find what they believed, and why. I was truly seeking knowledge, I was curious. I would listen politely and would never confront or criticize. As I said, I just wanted to know what they believed and why. I have found, however, that when religious people come to me and ask why I'm an atheist, it is seldom because they seek enlightenment. Usually their questions are just a gambit for them to criticize, attack, and try to convert me to their… Continue

I was out for a walk yesterday evening along a nearby canal. A breeze came along and blew a few leaves in my path. I stopped in my tracks and watched them settle on the ground; transfixed. I was about to continue when another breeze started up. But this time, along with the breeze I heard a voice whisper "I… Continue

I stumbled upon this and thought some of you would find this amusing. Another way for the church to bring money in. This made me laugh. What will they think of next?

I got a text a message from a pastor neighbor and he was furious about learning of my "bad activities" of "indoctrinizing" his members about atheism. Actually what happened was, last Tuesday, one of his friends/ member came up to me while I was reading a book infront of my house cause this friend of his learned from my facebook account that I am an atheist and asked me a lot of things which I humbly answered with honesty and then in return I asked him tons of questions about faith, morality… Continue

I consider myself to be a fairly easy-going guy. I try not to bother anyone preferring to live and let live.
But nothing gets my tits in a wringer more than when I hear of someone doing something monstrous because of their stupid religious beliefs.

A Jehovah Witness man, Kwabena Afum and his wife, Margret Afum aka Abena Oduma, have had a brush with the… Continue

Today, all around the Internet, especially on facebook and the like, there was a story moving with vicious veracity, that President Obama had canceled the National Day of Prayer. This, of course, is not true! It was cancelled by Judge Barbara Crabb from Wisconsin. She is the same judge that handed down the controversial Wisconsin Walleye War
ruling in 1987. But I am sure that she will be remembered for this instead. Since, no one outside of Wisconsin knows what the hell… Continue

I'm employed full time. My husband can't work until his green card paperwork is processed. We are looking at between four and six months for that to happen.
Right now, we share a house with two other room mates.
Living costs in the Bay Area, Ca are absurd so this is pretty normal.
However, we are feeling the need to have our own space.
Does anyone know if there are assistance programs out there for folks that work and pay taxes, but need a few other options?

Religion really is an oddity in humanity. When citing religion, one can be excused for irrational behaviour or beliefs. It gives people an excuse to not take part in the cultural norms of the society they live in. It allows people rights and privileges that people not of that religion are denied. It regularly excuses wrongdoing and lawbreaking if these are done "in the name of God". It… Continue

Pope Benedict spent May 2 by visiting Turin, Italy, where he celebrated an outdoor mass and knelt in silent prayer before the Shroud of Turin
, which many Catholics still believe to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ despite mountains of evidence to the contrary

Someone proposed this question to me today, and I had kind of a hard time answering it. I said something about it being based on what works best to preserve and create good relationships with others. The person then asked me where that comes from. I said it's the way I was taught, the way I grew up...but I'm an adult now, so what is it based on?
He asked me is it ever okay to lie. I said it's okay if for self-preservation in desperate situations or the preservation of… Continue
