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

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

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

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

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… Continue

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… Continue

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

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… Continue

This is the kind of bullshit e-mail some members of my family send ALL THE TIME!!!! While I haven't officially "come out," to them, they are all friends of mine on Facebook where under religious views it says non-believer and. I also have"blasphemous" quotes everywhere.

I decided to post my last blog post on facebook and I just happen to have family in TN, GA, and NC that are all Young Earth Creationists...yay me!

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

I’m going to choose to be more serious on this one…sorry! Link to the story on bottom. I think the important question shouldn’t be whether or not Jesus died on a cross but rather, whether or not he even existed? Furthermore, if he did exist, does that still mean the stories that surround him are anything more than mythical exaggerations attached to… Continue

So today I posted a simple status to my facebook wall I regards to the day of prayer that has been issued. Everyone has been asked by government officials to pray that god will stop the oil leak and clean the ocean. I posted a simple reply to this insane and unconstitutional proposition and I was shocked by the response my friend Amber gave. If you were me, how would you reply?
Kyle Wilhelm: Today is a government sanctioned day of prayer for the oil leak to stop, violating the church… Continue

Do not think that, since atheism is negative, because of the letter "a" before a-theism, then it is really negative. Wrong. Atheism is positive.
Atheism is INdependence. "IN" in independence may be negative but "independence" itself is positive.
Dependence is negative.
If you don't agree, then you are IN-sane and AB-normal. Hahaha!
WE should be happy atheists. ^^,
