Before I post this link, I just want to reiterate that Think Atheist is the site I hit first every morning, camp way too much throughout the day, and typically check last before going to bed. Morgan has created something truly unique here, and it cannot be matched. (Ok, done kissing ass now) I'm sure most of you, like me, have a few other atheist bookmarks you like to check though (or a list of RSS feeds).
According to this BoingBoing.net guest blogger, closeted atheists who go to church and pretend to be like all their fellow churchgoers are the "future of atheism." Its a little shocking to see this garbage on BB, which usually espouses openmindedness, tolerance and freedom.
Are you feeling like life isn’t exciting enough? That maybe you’re missing out on something because you just can’t get motivated for anything? Turns out you’re not alone.
“In a population of 6 billion+ people globally, it is hard not to feel like another number. I find life so disenchanting the more I pursue things I though were my dreams. I am at possibly the top university in the world getting my masters to make the world a…Continue
"If God made me, He made me rational and quizzical. He has given me the tools to think about Him. So I must submit Him to rational and moral inquiry. And He fails that examination. Why would anyone want to be ruled by a God who's so unmerciful, unjust,… Continue
I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter if what you're saying makes sense.
Example #1: One evening I was watching Extreme Home Make Over. (I know, bad idea.) An entire city was devastated by a horrible tornado. One part of the show centered around this old woman whose house had been completely demolished but the heart warming part was that God spared her rose garden. Really? That line of thinking seems a little backwards to me. Ok, so God was like, "I need to destroy this… Continue

"Could you read the back of this box and tell me if there's any sexual content in this movie?"
The woman across the counter from me holds out the DVD expectantly, and I take it. It's Saw II, part of the now 5-movie franchise which makes a point of being unnecessarily gory. I locate the rating so lovingly bestowed upon the film by the MPAA.
"It's rated R, for gore, violence, and language mostly."

I bet i just lost half of the people that were reading this with that first sentence :/ well i would like to let everyone on this site know i LOVE them no less than my own mother.

What makes the "hardcore" religious so... "hard headed"?
I remember not too long ago watching a news clip that showed two people talking about political parties. No matter how one of them tried to proclaim that either party can be wrong at any time and asked if the other person would side with the right party if the time came, the other kept saying that she would never change her party affiliation, she is a democrat and will be a democrat never a republican.
You are all apparently going to hell or where ever it is you believe the bad guys go.
According to the Christians if you don't follow the bible you will go to hell, according to Islam if you don't follow the Qur’an you will go to Jahannam; Jehovah's witnesses believe that if you are not a Jehovah's witness you will not gain entry to paradise therefore ceasing to be.
All religions believe in different ways of getting to 'Heaven'… Continue

Life-Science has many meanings, one of which is the science and art of living. Yes Gertrude, there is a science behind this existence we experience, and an art form we practice that helps us enhance the science. We make decisions based on known repeatable outcomes: Science. When… Continue

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
