Is Religion To Blame For Animal Cruelty?

I found this excellent write-up on Debunking Christianity last night, it is a chapter from John W. Loftus' upcoming book titled The Darwinian Problem of Evil. I found it to be quite thought provoking. It is a very long read but well worth the time it takes. When you're done, take the time to head over to Debunking Christianity and check out some of his other posts, it's one of the best Atheist blogs around.

Pat Condell - YouTube-based sanity

I was recently introduced to Pat Condell's YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/patcondell), and have spent the last day or so nodding, laughing, and getting angry about religion. He is (as I understand it), a stage comedian who has gone to YouTube to rant about religion and why we're better off without it. I can't recommend any one video above all other because, honestly, I think they're all fantastic.



Anyway, take a look and enjoy :) I'm going to watch more videos there… Continue

How much are we alike?

Basically I wanted to create a short questionnaire asking questions to determine how close everyone here is to my beliefs in philosophy, religion, ethics, politics, etc. Please fill this questionnaire out so that everyone can get a feel of what everyone else thinks.

Why the Pope is a mass murderer.

As if he wasn't gaining fans by excommunicating the mother and medical team of a 9 year old rape victim that ended a pregnancy found to be a risk to her life, the Pope is still out there, telling all those AIDS orphans and soon-to-be widow(ers) that condoms are evil!

The Vatican was 'considering an exception in the case where one married person has HIV/AIDS but the other didn't." So far, this exception hasn't been made.

Only considered.

While people… Continue

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A controversial Kentucky museum that trumpets the Bible story of creation and rejects evolution is making room for an odd guest: Charles Darwin.



A new exhibit at the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum argues that natural selection — Darwin's explanation for how species develop new traits over time — can coexist with the… Continue

Preaching the truth...

A monumentous thing happened to me yesterday.



I was ordained.



I am now a Minister for The Universal Church Triumphant of the Apathetic Agnostic.



It's a simple premise on which to actually base a church... a church is simply a formalised group of people who have basically the same view on God, right? So why not?

The church isn't made up only of people who define themselves as agnostic, there are weak atheists who accept that gods cannot be disproven, and… Continue

The God of Abraham, Isaac and... Islam?

At one point in my life, I didn't give much thought to different details in the Bible... everyone else seemed to overlook them, so they weren't brought to my attention. I was in the middle of a Bible study one day and was reading Genesis. I absently scanned the story of Abraham and God's promise to give him a son from which many nations would be born. Well, as we all know, Abraham had some "faith" issues and took matters into his own hands; consequently, he slept with his wife's maidservant,… Continue

The Truth About St. Patrick

St. Patrick is considered as the Patron Saint of Ireland. There are many, though, in Ireland that hold him in disdain. These people will never celebrate his legacy or life. It has been stated that St. Patrick rid Ireland of all of its snakes. Scientists have found that Ireland had not had snakes since icebergs surrounded the island. What could then be meant by the old legend?

Before Christianity began to spread into Ireland, the Druids were the leading…

Anyone ever heard of this before? I came across it in an episode of Penn & Teller, Bullshit. Its means simply to educate yourself and there are a lot of resources out there to help with it. Pretty interesting.

Sorry for my extended absence everyone, work has been quite busy lately and I recently moved into a new apartment, it's been a very hectic month for me thusfar.

For those of you unfortunate enough to have missed Cheney's triumphant comedy act on CNN's State Of The Union you missed a real gem of an interview. It… Continue

Is Oklahoma Investigating Richard Dawkins Free Speech?

by Greg Lukianoff

In a case that harkens back to the old-timey censorship of yesteryear, it appears that the Oklahoma legislature is pulling out the stops to oppose the University of Oklahoma's decision to host the Oxford evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins on its campus. Dawkins was invited to speak at… Continue

The Measure of an Atheist. (Related discussion in 'Ethics')

"Live and Let Live"

"The Golden Rule"

"Leave the World a Better Place"



Atheism and Morality



To say that a deity must be a moral compass is a fallen argument. Good does not become subjective without god, in fact the works of the Bible, Koran and multiple other religion's text make it clear that god's idea of 'good' is subjective when it comes to it versus evil. Murder, rape and slavery are easily rationalized, as is misogyny, bigotry and genocide.
