- From the section Birmingham & Black…
It has taken over 60 years, but I finally realized that I no longer believed in God. An unusual aspect of my "awakening" was that it was the result of writing a book "God's Gifts To Us All." I made a YouTube video of my journey at: https://youtu.be/O3UHmF815rM
I joined Think Atheist to share my story and see if others had a similar experience.
I would value any coaching how I might share my experience with others who may not as yet…Continue
Recently, I showed a YouTube video that was posted here to a relative who had been disfellowship from the Jehovah's Witnesses organization for several years. We barely made it forty minutes into the video before my relative declared that they "didn't want to go back to that place" after seeing evidence of the horrendous covering up…Continue
I found a blog post from Huff Post Religion where this dude thinks that certain religious tenets could benefit atheists if we'd just open our eyes to the obvious and not be so damn stubborn and confrontational all the time. At least that's how I took it. I think that guy is an idiot. I don't think atheists need to "borrow" anything from the religious. I…Continue
Everyone had a story that made them change their ways of thinking,beliefs or general ideologies. The same obviously went the same with me.. So I said before that I was born in a Muslim country with a Muslim family that made me believe in their god and religion... I was like them in every way until the beginning of the second year of high school.
So I used to go to school,attend class and go back home and study and start all over the second day...I do not really deal with people due to…Continue
A member of student council in a Maine college is being sanctioned and possibly expelled from the council for passing by a tequila party were some people wore little sombreros. That ghastly grizzly gross insensitivity of the most unforgivable…Continue
Es la diferencia entre esclavitud y libertad
Que se nace a un lado de la línea entre paraíso e infierno.
El color de su piel se rompe la bondad
Y te miran como si fuera de otro mundo
De la fe en que se nazca nadie te lo puede quitar
Y la lucha…Continue
I'm planning on going to Reason Rally this year. It'll be nice to be around like minded people, if a group of Atheists, Agnostics, Freethinkers, etc can ever be called like minded, for a change.
I love my friends dearly, but some of the believers among them just don't get me. I've seen some openly call Secular people fools for not believing in their personal beliefs. When politely confronted, they usually either go nuclear at me or delete me from their friends only to add me back…
So basically 3 days ago in my country, there was a metal concert in a place near of me and the cops stopped the concert and arrested some fans and accused them of being "Devil Worshipers". No metal bands perform in the middle east but there are some local bands here that sing songs from famous bands. I really got pissed off from such news because I am a metal fan myself and I never even thought about worshiping Satan, I do not even believe in him damn it lol... anyway, the mass media kept…Continue

Canada is joining the very small club of countries that do not force a human to suffer needlessly in agonizing pain and decide when they go. They are about to respect their own Canadian charter of human rights to its final conclusion: letting people make their own decisions about their lives and their bodies. Many of us see this as a…Continue
It is kinda weird for me to talk about my feelings because I always considered it a weak thing to do....but right now I am feeling VERY weak,pathetic and helpless. The people who read my previous blogs might have thought that I am that brave rebel who is against his society and is willing to fight for his freedom...That is sadly not true. Everyday I discover more that I am a big coward, I am always scared and I am always worried about everything in my life. I am living in CONTINUOUS fear, I…Continue
A possible new model (not actually new) reframes the universe game both in terms of age and size and singularities and gravity and passionate explosions. A possible game changer if the theory can expand and withstand scrutiny and testing (and predictive force). It is still in its infancy but if true it would mean that the only big bangs in the universe occur by animals on the…Continue
Turns out he wasn't the most conservative after all. Having said that...he was still super conservative (for the developed world by 21st century standards.
According to an article on Nate Silverman's website (I was lucky to see the great statistician speak at Leuven's prestigious…

This topic would not be about any religion or beliefs. It is something I always wanted to discuss and this topic is happiness. I always asked a question to myself in all this life,does happiness exist? in most of the cases I see people posting pictures and comments on social media on how happy they are.....but in reality, they are not really happy....
It is sad when I discover such thing because I always hoped to be happy like those guys or girls I see on social media but in the end…Continue
One of the primary, long-terms aims of the National Secular Society is the disestablishment of the Church of England. This means separating Church and State, ending the privileged position of the Church of England with the Queen as both Head of the Church and Head of State. The result of this would be that the Church would no longer have privileged input into government but also that government could not…Continue
So in the last blog I discussed how things go in the middle east from my point of view. Every problem occurring in the middle east is due to one main problem and this problem is violation to human rights. So basically nature is designed in a specific way and Islam is designed in a way completely opposite to nature. In the beginning of Islam, the worst way was used to spread the religion and that way was making an entire army to enter countries to spread the religion on the people by force.…Continue
