Dear God - Song by XTC

Found this song online; I like the lyrics alot; download the song and sing along; the artist is XTC





hope you got the letter, and...

I pray you can make it better down here.

I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer

but all the people that you made in your image, see

them starving on their feet 'cause they don't get

enough to eat from God, I can't believe in you



Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but... I feel that I should be… Continue

Discovering the secularist cause (New article at Examiner)

Here's my latest at Examiner.com, under my new title, "DC Secularism Examiner." It's a brief history of what brought me to writing about atheist activism.



A taste:



As I put my career in professional theatre temporarily aside (populated by a generally liberal and socially tolerant demographic) and toward politics, I came to realize that while my own…

The Facebook Debate

I know it has been a while since I posted on my blog. Sorry :S.



Unfortunately I am just too damn lazy and am so tired after work, that writing in my blog is more often than not the last thing I consider doing when I get home.



However, today I thought I would write a little, becuase I engaged in a very interesting facebook discussion with an old family friend from back home…



The whole thing started when I posted the following as my facebook… Continue

First post; glad to be here.

I am so glad I found this community; so glad I have joined.



Already I am seeing other like minded people on this website that think just like me; yep we atheists actually use our brain for thinking unlike non-atheists who just go along with what the church tells them.



I am so sick of religious bullshit going on in the world; we need to not ban religion but take religion out of governments, schools and other places where they can be harmful to the human… Continue

Oral Sex in Accordance with God's Will

Some Christian views on oral sex.







Since the publication of our original article on anal sex and God’s will, we have received several inquiries asking to clarify God’s position concerning oral sex. We are gratified that so many Christians are hungry for the word of the Lord and are actively seeking the Truth so that they may fulfill His plan in all areas of their lives.



The Good News About Oral… Continue

Well that was exciting.

Haha, Wow. My last post of my rant against trendy vegans/vegetarians got rather exciting and out of hand. More than likely my fault, but I rather like the people of this site so I took it down as to not offend or alienate anyone on the site that saw it as a personal attack on all people that are vegetarian.

The amount of replies that took away from my post things that I didn't mean was astounding, as I have had this post on other sites and not gotten so much offense. I can only assume that… Continue

Is Militant Atheism Detrimental?

Now I am not expected to go into extreme specifics or go into too much detail but just basically throw this out there and let it be know. If you disagree don't be a dick. :P So I hear a lot of people talking about how Militant Atheism is a bad thing for the image of Atheism and I came to one final conclusion:



It's complicated.



I mean what is Militant Atheism? Asking to have "God" removed from the pledge? Wasn't that how it originally was? Being against religion? Even… Continue

A call to action!!!

Currently in the United States "Non Religious" people make up about 20% of the population.

This includes Atheists, Agnostics, Secular non affiliated, No preference, etc. Jews consist of less than 2% of the population of the United States. Mormons less than 2%, Muslims less than 1%. These are the religious groups that the non-religious out number, yet why is it that we are lucky to get 1 or 2 congressmen to represent us? The truth is that essentially every congressman or woman in congress… Continue

Arabs, Muslims battle US, Europeans over free speech at UN

GENEVA: Arab and Muslim countries defended Tuesday a resolution they pushed through at the United Nations to have the body's expert on free speech police individuals and news media for negative comments on Islam.



The United States, Canada and some European countries criticized the role reversal for Kenyan legal expert Ambeyi Ligabo, who has reported to the global body on measures by dictatorships and repressive governments to restrict free speech.



The U.S. and other… Continue

The God Paradox

One of the first things I notice when the question of God's existence comes up is how very little is discussed as to what God actually IS. It seems to me that if we are to make progress in this debate, we have to take time to actually reconcile our perceptions of what God actually is in order to debate his existence in the first place. In this blog I will present what I believe the concept of God actually IS and why its important to "simplify" our perceptions of God in order to fully appreciate… Continue

The Fallacy of Faith

According to Merriam-Webster, deduction is defined as “the deriving of a conclusion by reasoning; specifically: inference in which the conclusion about particulars follows necessarily from general or universal premises.”



An example of deductive reasoning is as follows:



Premise 1: People cannot see in the dark.

Premise 2: It is dark in caves.

Conclusion: People can’t see in caves.



There’s no arguing about the above example. A person might say that… Continue

by Michael Cohen





Posted: 11:30 February 8, 2009



A remarkable UFO incident that occurred in the skies over Athens over a year ago but was kept secret by the Greek Aviation Authority and the Greek Air Force has recently come to light and is receiving extensive media coverage in Greece. A recording of the conversation (in Greek) between the pilot involved and the airport control tower has been made public and can be listened to below. A copy of the official aviation… Continue

Why don't you give up being a moron for Lent?

Once again, the Lenten season is upon us. For those of you who don't know, Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent, is tomorrow. So of course this means all the good little Catholics are out there deciding what they are going to give up until Easter. Of course this means that I am sitting here and shaking my head at the sheer stupidity of this tradition.



I grew up Catholic, so I am quite familiar with the song and dance that is the Lent tradition. I remember my mom asking me… Continue

Partisan Preacher: IRS Should Revoke Florida Evangelist’s Tax-Exempt Status

No re-write today, just a straight pull from the Americans United for Separation of Church and State site.



More evidence has come to light that the Internal Revenue Service is cracking down on religious ministries that violate federal law by endorsing or opposing candidates for public office.

Evolution is Not the Same as Social Darwinism



While Confusion of the Two is Common, Evolution and Social Darwinism Are Two Separate Things

There seems to be some confusion, especially in the conservative Christian community, between the Theory of Evolution and Social Darwinism.



"Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" which came out in 2008 was a film created to arouse anti-science and anti-evolution sentiments among viewers. To that end the film purposely confused the meaning of… Continue

A True Christian Conservative Nightmare - Atheist Hip-Hop!

I don't know how many folks here on Think Atheist are fans of the genre and for those of you that aren't please spare me the bashing. I love Hip-Hop, it gets a bad rap. Judging Hip-Hop by what you've seen or heard on MTV for the past 6 years or so is kin to judging Metal and all it's sub genres based on the Hair Metal that graced the same network in the 80s. Behind the "Glam Rap" that dominates airtime now and the Gangsta trend that came before it are some incredibly intelligent individuals… Continue
