One of the most fun parts about grad school was how schooled I was by the professors. Their greatest joy in life was to pick on the students, it was all eyes on the white board or expect to be questioned (read: intellectually massacred.) Anyone's who's ever been called stupid by a teacher in open class knows that it's quite humbling. Rarely, you manage to get the dictator professor to admit mistake just one time - once during a half decade - and you are the school nerd champ. A title rarely…Continue

Okay, so this story got me really uncomfortable and just further proved my point that a god does not exist. One of my good friends invited me to this church youth group get-together, so being the good friend I am, I said okay out of politeness. Upon my arrival to this building of lies, all seemed to be normal until it was time for "down time". I had no idea what this was so I just stood awkwardly in the middle of this big room.
So when "down time" started everyone closed…Continue

Ok, so a local branch of the Veterans Association holds a ceremony on each Memorial Day at the Houston National Cemetery, just like many other communities around the country do. For the past two years, a preacher has been giving the invocation during the ceremony, explicitly mentioning Jesus Christ. This year, the VA asked for the prayer in advance and the opening reads as follows; "While respecting people of every faith today, it is in the name of Jesus Christ, the risen Lord, that I…Continue
“Tell me about the god you don’t believe in?” Another question I have been asked. Frankly, this one is rather lame. If I am feeling cheeky I might describe my favorite fantasy. I am a mythology slut after all.
“If I chose to believe in divinity,” I explain to them. “I chose to believe in a female god – a goddess. The feminine has all the raw, creative and destructive power as the masculine. She has the same bloodlusts, hormone lusts, but she is a true creator of life. Her…Continue
This is a phrase I have started seeing online more and more. People (in general and on both sides of the spectrum) are griping about the "new Atheists" and how they seem to be shoving their non-beliefs down other peoples throats.
I understand the problems that people may have with "In your face Atheism" as I like to call it, however, in this day and age I honestly thing the main goal of people who do this (myself included) is to inform others. It took me 10 years to "come…Continue
Power Balance Australia owner Tom O'Dowd admitted to SmartCompany that while he had been "naive" in thinking that the business would not by subject to laws surrounding the regulation of health products.
The rubber wristbands that contain a magnet, are supposed to work by optimising the wearer's natural energy fields using special holograms. Power Balance claims the products improve the wearer's balance, strength and flexibility. The bands were originally marketed in…Continue
In the last few months telling my family I truly didn't believe in what they did and I was a Atheist; I have found a lot of non acceptance. Not that I am surprised by some, but really? I am the same kind, helpful, caring person I always have been. It does sadden me that I hear such negative talk about Atheist from Christians. Christianity is based on love but yet the love is only for those who feel the same. I think…Continue
As I drank my morning cup of joe,
I happened to hear it on the Today Show,
and my coffee out of my mouth I spat,
as I heard Palin might put her name in the presidential race's hat!
Oh, joy, oh rapture oh fun,
Sarah Palin might once again run!
Hope is once again renewed,
as Palin will be plastered on the evening news.
Night after night we get to hear,
good ol Sarah hanging with plumber joe and havin a…Continue
Following your recent blogs I have started to see a real difference between the attitudes to atheism here in the UK and those of North America.
It comes across that being an Atheist in the US is akin to being in a minority group with the same issues as being gay or black may have in some parts of the country.
Here in the UK, declaring you have no faith or religon will not raise an eyebrow, will hardly warrant a comment or start a conversation, in fact it is becoming the…Continue
This blog has so far been stories about my nonsensical encounters with my friend since the revelation of my atheism to him. So if you've enjoyed it so far here is some more garbage.
When my friend and I first started getting to know each other enough to claim "best" status we came across a very odd bit of commonality. Both my friend and I were prophesied over as children.
His came when he was just a newborn, one of the church elders came to his mother and said "His…Continue
Okay, we've all seen them Those message boards out front of churches where they put up a new message every so often. Well around here we've had a few ridiculous ones lately.
"The trees are green, the birds are back, God did it again!" Seriously? Do these people seriously not know how the seasons work?
The newest on is pretty silly. "Save gas, walk with God."
I thought this might be a good place we could share the ridiculous quotes we see. So,…Continue
"The bottom line," said Saal, an author on the ScienceExpress paper and the principal investigator on the research grants, "is that in 2008, we said the primitive water content in the lunar magmas should be similar to the water content in lavas coming from the Earth's depleted upper mantle. Now, we have proven…Continue
Oh, the joy of openly mocking Christianity.
If you want to teach evlution, we want creationism,too. Well if you want creationism, you have to teach the beleifs of a pastafarian (A member of the church of the flying speghetti monster)
I love a website that just puts it out there, christianity is crack. This is a great website for any "anti evalutionist" to see.

Hey everyone. I got into a really heated debate today with my sister, a theist, who sends $300 dollars a month to Joyce Meyers and claims that she's anointed by God. When I found out that my sister was sending money to that ministry I told her that she's no different than Benny Hinn (whom she says is terrible and a fraud) and that she's been investigated before for several things related to money. I offered to show her the info and my sister flat out refused, got angry and started…Continue
in the absence of justice
you drop to your knees
& you close your eyes
looking for something
which you believe can do the
work for you---
you run in your mind to another
which you believe exists even though
you have never actually found proof
& no one you know
has ever found such a place
or testified to its existence
without standing in that…Continue
