It's really too bad that when Christine O'Donnell and other God-believing nuts die, that they won’t finally get realize that there is no God, heaven, or afterlife.



I mean it's one thing for them to have their own private personal convictions,…

"Sunday Morning Wasn't Easy" NSFW

I hated Sunday morning



Getting dressed up to be my best



Driving to church in silence



Waiting to hear what's next



Promises with catches to them



Making me feel inadequate



I would promise myself



That one day I would have a hit



All I asked for was someone for me that gave a shit



But all I got was a "god" that made me feel lonely instead



*



Hope found itself dead



Yeah my… Continue

Could someone explain this denomination to me?

http://www.emmanuelbfc.org/

What denomination did I emancipate myself from?

This is the church that my parents belong too. I just found the link today. I've been in this church millions of times. This is were it all started for me. I've always been confused about their teachings.

Christian Stalker

This is really funny and yet also quite disturbing. An assistant to the Michigan States Attorney General has been stalking and cyber bullying the UM student council president. I'll repeat that... the assistant Attorney General... A GROWN UP... is cyber bullying and stalking a 21 year old student, under the guise of a political campaign as a "Christian Citizen", because the student is gay. As Christopher Hitchens recently said in his Slate article on Bishop Eddie Long, "I have a rule of thumb… Continue

Pew Study Finds Why Your Arguments Don't Work

So before we get really excited about the latest Pew Study that finds atheists/agnostics to have a higher understanding of religious knowledge than...well the religious, I took some time to think about one of the famous quotes by Stephen Roberts.



"When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods

you will understand why I dismiss yours."



Do you see the problem why theists don't get us?



If the theists don't know much in regards to…

What Would Jesus Do? An Atheist Perspective

What Would Jesus Do? Indeed, you should ask that question. This is the moniker of the Evangelicals in getting their kids to think about how they treat others. We all remember seeing these bumper stickers and wrist bands everywhere ten years ago, at least in the US. The basic idea behind it was the Golden Rule, "Treat others as you would be treated." The same group advocates Jesus as the only sinless person. We know little about the life of Jesus, but what we find in the Bible gives me more than… Continue

Obscurity

Why so obscure?

Why so full of doubt?

I thought your intellect would have brought clarity.

I thought your knowledge would erase all doubt.



But now I see it all so clearly.

That your obscurity comes from futility.

Futility of intellect

Futility of knowledge



In the end there is only confusion.

When one knows not what to believe

He stands the risk of believing anything

Even if it is obscurity



Thank you for reading. This poem (I don't… Continue

If it wasnt inspired by God...

If Christians believed that their bible wasn't written by god, Christians would spend there time trying to ban it instead of getting it into public schools.



think about it. The bible consists of so many things that they spend so much time trying to tell the world is wrong.



such as: incest, Adultery, Mass murder of men, women and children, manslaughter, religious intolerance, slavery, supporting unequal rights, selfishness, polygamy, thievery, cannibalism....these are all… Continue

Don't Let The Bullies Gain Steam

A basic tenant of what we stand for here in the US, and preferably around the world, is Freedom of Religion. Well it's time to speak out for a Muslim Group. A Muslim Group that is facing problems in their city, Sidney, New York, for having a cemetery on it's property. It is in fact an approved cemetery. The city is trying to force the cemetery to dig up the bodies and move them to the city cemetery. Why? No specific laws in… Continue

Labels.

Most of my friends know that I am interested in politics, and that I am unaffiliated and that I refuse to consider my self liberal or conservative.



Liberalism is the belief in the importance of individual liberty and equal rights.



Conservatism is a political and social philosophy that promotes the maintenance of traditional institutions and supports minimal and gradual change in society.



These terms do not make a lick… Continue

Politics

I often hear the question or a suggestion that atheists get involved in the political process.

Here are my reasons for thinking this is a really bad idea. First of all politics is like walking through a deep mud puddle. There is just no way to do it without getting dirty.

Politics in our strange form of democracy (really a…

"The Mind is Everything" from Atheist Climber Blog

Is there a sense of determinism in the universe? Does the universe have a purpose?



My personal understanding of the universe is that there is no definite purpose for the universe, merely that the universe is a result of a series of events, which were the series of a previous series of events, which in turn, are the result of a previous series of… Continue

from Atheist Climber Blog



We are all born onto this Earth as the product of a mother and a father in a more-or-less helpless state. From the moment of birth we depend upon those around us to feed us and protect us from the ravages of the outside world. Unlike most other species on the planet who are born or hatched into situations that warrant that they are already on the move, a… Continue

From Atheist Climber Blog



The world is in some real strife at the moment. We are approaching a point where experts believe that we will live in an unsustainable way within the next few years, and the population of Earth will reach 9 billion by the middle of this century. While it is true that, for the majority of people living on Earth today, our lives have improved in health and… Continue

Pastors to defy the IRS

http://abcnews.go.com/US/defiant-pastors-irs-pulpit-freedom-sunday/story?id=11726610

Just wondering if you guys had seen this yet and your thoughts on it.

Looks like the churches are wanting to get into the political arena. They want to endorse cantidates and influence how people vote.

Fine. They can also start paying taxes on all that property.
