11 Eye-Opening Highlights From a Creationist Science Textbook

I cam across this recently and had to share the absurdity of it.. 





Published Monday, January 9, 2012 at 11:00:00 AM



A few months ago, I was reading about homeschooling, because I do things like randomly reading about homeschooling. I read an article that mentioned a family using science textbooks produced by Bob Jones University. (If you're not familiar, that's a…

Rape and Pillage

Physical Attraction In Men and Women Joshua Anointed

Numbers 25:1 to 35:9





25:1 The Israelites hung out in a place in Moab called Shittim and became infatuated by the Midianite culture there, especially the women. Shittim was modern. Shittim was fancy. Many Israelite men enjoyed hooking up with Midianite girlfriends and they also…

Bible in schools

Interesting story in the UK today; Richard Dawkins approves of government plan to put Bible in all state schools.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2012/may/19/richard-dawkins-backs-free-bible

Prompted two thoughts. One is that there's a lot of complaints from christian groups here that they are persecuted by militant secularists, and this shows that atheism is essentially a tolerant…

The Tyranny Vs the Humans of LGBT

Hello world, I am Réasúnach! As you can well see I have called this blog “The Tyranny vs the Humans of LGBT”. The tyranny is indeed in reference to the majority of mainstream religions practiced on this planet to this day, mainly Christianity & Islam. 

I quite very purposely use the phrase “the humans of the LGBT”. Too often are the LGBT treated as less than human or second class citizens,which by the way there is no justification. I recall once coming across an…

Venting

This past month I went to First Monday (huge trade day thing in Canton) and this was my first time to go. There was crosses in pretty much every booth/shop. Some specialized in just that and verses. Every one of those made me shudder or roll my eyes. To me that cross represents a hell of a lot of bad things. I just recently opened my eyes and accepted my atheism with open arms, and now I really resent and am angry at religion. My question is, why do people wear those crosses? I get that it's…

Why facts are useless against religion

I've been there too many times to count - a discussion with a religious person which seems absolutely impervious to Facts. Actually, it doesn't even have to be a religious person, it can be people holding very strong opinions on everything from political to economical to social to aesthetic to any type of issue. I know that I am correct, I can present plenty of evidence for my position and why the opponent's argument doesn't hold, but they are impervious to it. Why is it that my Facts don't…

Zealous atheists resemble religious fanatics

Some years ago I attended a meeting in the home of a prominent Toronto businessman. Probably because he recognized me as he let me in, he felt compelled to warn me that he was a devout atheist.

Southern Fried Tyranny With Grits and Hypocrisy

So North Carolina decided that somehow it was a good idea to vote on a civil rights issue seeing how it all worked out so well the first time. This time it wasn’t some racist ideas but it was close enough. It was about gay people having the gall to demand fair treatment under law and be afforded a legal status that is for some reason given only to heterosexual couples. They want to get married.



I’m sorry but there’s this thing called Article 6 of the United States Constitution and…

On Death

Recently a good friend's mother died. It was very sudden and heartbreaking.

My friend is an atheist like me, and I can only hope he isn't being flooded with the usual garbage of "She's in a better place," or "She's watching over you now."

I remember when I lost my grandmothers I was filled with this pain, this realization that these wonderful women were inaccessible to me. Unfortunately I was religious at the time, and my first years of grieving were filled with guilt and…

Religion and love

So im currently in a relationship with a christian woman, she knows i dont believe in god and the bible, yet i do believe that whatever makes you a good human being is fine by me. Should the fact of me not believing in a god sway our interest in eachother? Here i am a man of logic and she a woman of faith yet i dont see her any different but she does, so i ask myself, why believe is a god that sees all others wrong? I dont care what you believe all i know is i like you for you, not what u…

gregarious garments

uniting farcical flocks all over the world,

gregarious garments, talismans &

little good luck charms required by religions

to ward off “evil spirits,” to separate man

from “god,” or to just protect the fuzzy sheep

from the rest of us heathens,

are donned by believers everywhere

(but kept oh so secret).

 

the infamous magical mormon underwear

whose mere mention offends the mormons

Secular left

I was dieheartend at atheistcon in Melbourne this year by a number of things: Hirsti Ali suggested that Islam was 'our' biggest concern, as did Harris; Mr Deity referenced our government before retracting in recognition of the fact he was speaking in Australia; Eugene Scott was introduced as representing the 'National Centre for Science Education (NCSE), we, in Australia don't have such a thing; Lesile Canold suggested that ' this is a numbers game' and that we, the atheists, should be good…

Isolationist Encounters

Generally speaking, we're all ignorant of one or more topic. Discourse, research, and cosmopolitan gossip are sure fire ways of educating ourselves. But lately, and it may be just me noticing it more, people have been watching too much F0X News, associating with Tea Party members, and listening to devout Ron Paul disciples. They purposefully omit facts with pull verbal stunts reminiscent of Pascal's Wager, as if there are only two possible answers to all questions.

Why Yahweh is Not Against Abortion

This is a short excerpt dealing with abortion from Chapter 2 of the book I have almost completed.  The chapter goes into much greater detail to explain why the Christian god is not against abortion at all.  The following is just one of many explanations:

If we consider that according to Christianity, the Christian…

The Avengers Xian product placement

So the other day I went to see The Avengers at a nearby movie theater. It was a great movie with an amazing cast but one particular scene was almost vomit-inducing. As Captain America was about to confront the gods Loki and Thor, Black Widow informed him to be careful because they were powerful gods. In response, Captain America stated something like "There is only one god ma'am, and I doubt he dresses like those two". Upon hearing that statement, several people in the theater applauded and…
