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

Your child doesn't care that I'm a different color
But why do you

Adults like to love based on who they see
Yet they can love an imaginary god who they can't see but can't love me
Oh I'm not scared of your Hell believe me
If it did exist you would be right there with… Continue

From Martin S Pribble
"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean… Continue

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…

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.
If you were to listen to Evangelicals and Baptists, you… Continue
