Atheism is a natural outcome



In my recent interview with PZ Myers, when asked "Is atheism even something you think about, or is it merely part of having an informed knowledge of the universe and its workings?" he stated:

"Atheism is a natural conclusion of rational and scientific thinking."

Bingo! He hit the nail on the head, and… Continue

Babies Are Not Ashamed

Your child doesn't care that I'm a different color


But why do you


Babies love who loves them plainly


Adults like to love based on who they see

Jesus Appealed to Greed as a Motivator

Greed, one of the seven deadly sins, to be avoided for sure. But does Jesus promise it? Does he put the carrot of riches out in front of his followers? Does Jesus tempt you with a sin? Does he appeal to your desire for material possessions? I think so. It's in a long line of his spiritual failures, so what's one more?


Through out the Bible you'll find warnings to avoid worrying about wealth and material things. You would expect that such a great teacher could motivate…

Vegan Morality is Quite Fuzzy

Much fodder is made about how humans treat animals. You’ll hear arguments about how we humans are animals (agreed) as if that means that we should be treating them as friends. I would argue that because we are animals, we should be treating them better than they would treat us. Considering many animals in the wild

would simply kill us, use what they want, then leave the carcass behind for…

No Second Chances - Why the Oscar Grant Killing is more horrifying for a non-believer





This piece was originally published on OpEdNews.com under the same title.



To borrow a line from John Lennon, "Imagine there's no heaven." Really, imagine it.

Living Under God's Good Graces

Last year Gregory Paul updated a study on the value of living in a religious society. He clearly shows that the more religious a society is, the worse life is for the society. He collected data from all over the world, so it's not just a US study. There were criticisms in his 2005 report on it so the second one really was designed to silence the critics.
