A Magazine Non-Christians Need to be Warned About

It's as though Christians know non-Christians will not pick up one of their magazines and read it, which means that they have a free pass to write as much superstitious nonsense and cram as much supernatural guilt into every edition of Joy! Magazine as possible. Every non-believer who needs verification about the absurdity of the Christian faith definitely needs to skim through… Continue

Value/damage of association

What do people here feel about the value of group association? By this I mean a person defines themselves by association to a group, ie I am atheist/spiritual/Liverpool supporter/dog lover/cat lover/rationalist etc etc, the main point is these are choices I have made, not association due to natural conditions ie male/white/Irish (although nationalism is a moot point) which I had no choice in (with nationalism I could choose to align myself with another nationality).

I feel that association… Continue

INTRODUCTION OF A NEW RELIGION

The theists probably do not agree with us that every thing is subject to change.So they are sticking to the concepts initiated more than a couple of thousand years ago.We can't accept such age old conceptions after tremendous developments in the field of science.So we are going to introduce a new religion,namely 'ATHEISM' which is modified and modernized with the light of science.I would like to put up this proposal in front of the atheists for their consideration.Comment on how does it… Continue

ATHEISM IS THE BEST RELIGION TILL DATE

Religion had been initiated in the primitive age, when humans began to unite in societies,to prevent anarchism.They laid down some rules and regulations to run the society in a systematic way.All the basic religions in the world speak of the way of life.Notion of supernatural power was involved with the confusion of the Laws Of Nature.It was assumed that everything was conducted by an invisible superpower.Solar… Continue

Just had a chat/debate with a very sweet Jehovas Witness lady who came a'knockin.

It went like this...



Her: We're talking to people about the state of the world, what do you

think about it?



Me: I notice them both carrying bibles so I figure I wouldn't waste

their time and I say....Well it needs improving, but I don't believe in

any Gods that have ever been created by man. Not Thor, Isis, Mythras,

none of the many Hindu Gods, and also not the one you believe in.



Her: Oh so how do you know what to do, how do you know whats… Continue

Zakir Naik

BBC article:

An Indian Muslim preacher has been banned from entering the UK for his "unacceptable behaviour", the home secretary says.

Zakir Naik, a 44-year-old television preacher, had been due to give a series of lectures in London and Sheffield.

Theresa May said that visiting the UK was "a privilege, not a right".

The home secretary can stop people entering the UK if she believes there is a threat to national… Continue

The Bible vs. The Quran

I posed this question to someone called CreationPhysics on Twitter (please try to ignore the glaring oxymoron) but I received no reply.



Christians claim to know that the Bible is the inerrant word of God because of fulfilled prophecies, among other things which I will touch on in a moment. However, the argument of fulfilled prophecies is one of the most frequently used argument I have personally encountered in my debates with… Continue

Beginning the Beguine

I have too many blogs already, so why start another, especially when I'm neglecting most of my other ones as it is? I can't really answer that, except to say that it somehow manages to seem like a good idea at this time.


I'm fascinated by Christianity. I stopped attending church and considering myself Christian when I was still a boy. But I continue to marvel at how so many people throughout the world embrace or at least say they embrace the "faith," and I love to discuss…

Christians think that atheists are lesser people, heres the proof.

"All kids must read the Bible, federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says" from Adelaide Now

In Australia right now, we sit at a particularly interesting point. Our newly appointed Prime Minister is not only a female, a feminist, unmarried and without children, but she outed herself as an ATHEIST this morning!


When it comes to election time, we will be choosing between her and Tony Abbott, who is a Christian zealot. This story appeared in…

Australia's new Prime Minister admits non-belief in a god.



http://www.abc.net.au/local/audio/2010/06/29/2939565.htm



Australia's first Lady Prime Minister is a non believer!



Up until now my interest in politics has been dismal, but this has really been an eye opener, we're usually left with the same old white men, dropping the odd line here and there to keep the christian voters happy, Julia Gillard (PM) is bound to stir up some debate, if anything she really… Continue

God's Shit List

The concept of free will is the excuse given by apologists when faced with the cruelties of their God. They can justify their gods behavior based on the choices that we make. We could choose to follow the law, but we don't so we have chosen the painful route and all blame falls on the infidel's shoulders. There is at least one biblical concept that doesn't sit well with that position.


Throughout the Bible there is a concept of a "Book of Life". You'll find it in…

Why Atheism is on the Right Track

Atheism is on the right track. We humans should not assume the existence of the unprovable and the unobservable. God isn't observable therefore he doesn't exist until proven. Necessity is not the mother of inventions when it comes to the invention of God.



Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem. Entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity. This is the Occam's Razor.



An Atheist has no reason to believe in God. He has no reason to deny either. To deny is not… Continue
