Why believe in a book with no proven fact?

I have to say i have asked christians on what evidence they have that god exists and none of them can give me any factual avidence on the existence of their own beliefs, so why believe in them in the first place?

Choosing a religion

I had posted something a long the lines of this on a random site asking questions about religion... and well lets say it was picked apart by um well everyone... but...



I think it is 100% wrong for children to be baptized and forced in to a religion when they cant even sit up on their own.



Choosing a religion is something that should mean something to the person choosing entering which religion they choose.



I was baptized in the Catholic Church because my Mother… Continue

City officials promote prayer at local pageant

On May 30, 2009, the Miss Salem pageant was held in Salem City Utah. The city of Salem sponsored the event, and the Mayor of the city, J. Lane Henderson, gave opening comments. An invocation led by Salem City Councilperson Lynn Durrant called the attending public to prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.



According to the First Amendment of the US Constitution, preference by the government of one religion over another, non-religion over religion, or religion over non-religion, is… Continue

Atlantis

This is another of those articles for which I'm having to suppress just a hint of party-pooping, fuddy-duddy guilt. Atlantis is actually a pretty cool legend, and some really fun stories have arisen around it. The Indiana Jones game, about stopping the Nazis from harnessing the immense power of a lost civilisation, was something I had many, many hours of fun with back when I was first discovering point-and-click… Continue

Very new

As in seconds, at the end of this post, minutes even.



Very excited to get to know some interesting intelligent people... do they still exist? were they all myth? who knows? I have faith. (pun intended)



Mini bio/info

Atheist for as long as I can remember, even when I didn't know the term. 'God' has always been fictitious to me, it never seemed real, or possible. The older I get and the more I learn the more that fact holds true for me.

The Lords Prayer = Death for Obama?

NEW YORK (ABP) -- A former Southern Baptist Convention officer who on June 2 called the death of abortion provider George Tiller an answer to prayer said later in the day he is also praying "imprecatory prayer" against President Obama.



Later in the interview, Colmes returned to Drake's answer to make sure he heard him right.

"Are you praying for his death?" Colmes asked.

"Yes," Drake replied.

"So you're praying for the death of the president of the United… Continue

Land of the Lost Review - American Cheese

Dr. Rick Marshall, bent on proving his crack-pot theory, is literally dumped into a land with dinosaurs, distant primates and evil alien overlords. Land of the Lost suffers from a lack of comedic timing, outdated effects, pitiful editing, and painfully shallow writing, but offers plain silliness as a consolation prize.



Disgraced and outcast, Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Farrell) is inspired to finish his work by graduate student Holly Cantrell (Anna Friel). Using the newly finished… Continue

Simon Singh is charming! Er, appealing!

Apparently I went to bed just too early last night to see the Twitterscape and blogosphere explode with the news: Simon Singh is indeed going to be appealing against the ruling in the preliminary hearing, in his legal case in which he is charged with libel by the British Chiropractic Association.



Yay!



His book Trick or Treatment, co-authored with Edzard Ernst, is currently in the process of knocking my socks off (quite inconvenient and uncomfortable, actually, especially… Continue

Court Prevents Bible Reading in School

AP Story Below



PHILADELPHIA - A kindergartner's mother cannot read Scripture during show and tell, even if the Bible is the boy's favorite book, a U.S. appeals court ruled.



"Parents of public school kindergarten students may reasonably expect their children will not become captive audiences to an adult's reading of religious texts," Chief Judge Anthony J. Scirica wrote in Monday's split 2-1 opinion, which upheld a lower court's ruling.



In October 2004, the… Continue

50 reasons to believe in God

50 reasons to believe in God



From Iron Chariots Wiki



For the book by Guy P. Harrison, see 50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God.

In northeast Georgia (USA), just off the Hartwell Highway there is a monument situated on a small rise. It is made of six granite slabs; there is a capstone, one slab stands in the center, and around it four vertical slabs stand just over sixteen feet high. The… Continue

Atheist fear/suspicion.

I've made a parallel this morning. In fact, it was so profound to my existence (and yet somehow still shallow, which makes it all the more delicious) that I'm letting my tea get cold downstairs while I write about it.



Consider:

Atheists are distrusted for the same reason the hot-and-awesome-platonic-best-friend-of-your-significant-other is.

I know. I've been that girl my entire life.

Not so much the hot and awesome part (though there is that, too) but definitely the… Continue

More Sex Please, You're Artists

By: Jonathan Jones



There isn't enough sex in the arts today. Look back at the 20th century and the whole point of modernism was to liberate the carnal. DH Lawrence, priest of love, competed to shock the last survivors of the Victorian age with James Joyce, who rambled uninhibited to detail Leopold Bloom's underwear fantasies. In art, Picasso introduced the modern age with… Continue
