Feast of the Transplantation of the Black Nazarene: A Deadly Feast



Today, Millions of Christian devotees celebrated the feast of the transplantation of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, Manila that’s why we don’t have classes in school. Whoohoo! Has anyone heard about it?



It’s a yearly procession of the image. The statue has been placed on a golden red carriage and pulled through the streets of Quiapo by devotees dressed in maroon. People are all trying to climb to the statue because they believe that… Continue

Think Atheist Seriously has some amazing people!



This is more a shout out to all the people that are apart of this community! The people I have been following/reading on chat/blogs are simply amazing. Rational discussions about certain topics do not get out of hand and people do not cry/pout about stupid stuff AND usually come to a certain conclusion that makes SENSE. It is such a rewarding feeling knowing that there are other people out there that really think and use their heads! I am excited… Continue

My Sin

As I slip into darkness

I do not forget the chords

Which silenced the silence

And took its voice forever



As my foot leaves the path

I remember all the lessons

Which drove from my mind

My doubt of never asking



My soul is condemned but

My intentions were pure

My heart is forsaken but

All it asked for was love



All I can see is eternity

From here, all I hear

Is the song of angels

Voices laced with… Continue

Arguing with Christians

Can we talk, FUN TIMES. If you haven't had the pleasure of engaging in such vigorous debate, I

can't recommend it highly enough. In spite of the fact I haven't successfully deprogrammed anybody yet, the one big drawback is that I DON'T GET TO DO IT ENOUGH. I'm looking at you Helen, I love me a good argument.



Of course the obvious caveat is that before you engage in battle you must know your opponent well enough that he won't go all jihad on your ass. There's nothing scarier than… Continue

Somedays I feel like witnessing...

Often times I find myself walking around the mall or in and out of stores and there are folks who feel like witnessing to me (witnessing is street mission work for those unfamiliar with the Christian term). Most times I'm in a hurry or they catch me when I am to tired to argue responsibly, so I kindly say, "I'm not interested," or "I'm an atheist," without stopping to give them time to argue. Then there are days where I feel like doing some of my own witnessing myself.



I would like… Continue

My Mind Was Just Blown

I need to preface this entry with letting you know I've only recently began really exploring what it means to be an atheist and what implications it has on my life and future. I've known for a long time that I didn't think God existed but never sat down and thought about it. I've now started that process.



I just finished watching Richard Dawkins "Root of All Evil". If you've never seen it I would strongly suggest it.



I am overwhelmed right now.



I am amazed and… Continue

Evolutionary Psychology

I find evolutionary psychology to be a fascinating, and practical way of looking at how and why people think and act the way they do. It explains why some people act in the seemingly not so logical ways they do sometimes. It explains how we've developed emotions, and how they aren't something beyond the physical world. A notion many find hard to part with. Anyways I'm mostly making this post because I felt like sharing this great… Continue

China's Charter 08

I heard about this on the radio, so I had to find it...

This is important, I had to repost it...

China's Charter 08

Translated from the Chinese by Perry Link



The document below, signed by more than two thousand Chinese citizens, was conceived and written in conscious admiration of the founding of Charter 77 in Czechoslovakia, where, in January 1977, more than two hundred Czech and Slovak intellectuals formed… Continue

Condescend to the Messenger

David Waters of WashingtonPost.com's On Faith blog takes a mostly-fair look at Michael Newdow's inauguration lawsuit by seeing what effect the messengers have on the substance of the case.

. . . I suspect the lawsuit would have generated less condescension if it had been filed by the…

Roman Catholicism - the Big Mac of religion

OK, for you non-churchies, I will school you on some of the basics of what it's like going to a Catholic church. Hopefully the institution will go the way of the DoDo, facial hair on men, and disco and what I'm writing here will be THE definitive/wikipedia description of what church is like. Cause of course what I'm writing here is all true (yeah right).



For the Roman Catholic, church is 1 hour (should be, no more no less). You forgive if they go over a LITTLE because hey, you're a… Continue

Stem cell transplants repair heroin related brain damage in rodents.

To add to the growing body of evidence that stem cell research can be a boon to medicine and to our aging population, an article published today in Technology Review reports that "By injecting stem cells directly into the brain, scientists have successfully reversed neural birth defects in mice whose mothers were given heroin during pregnancy. Even though most of the transplanted cells did not survive, they induced the… Continue

An atheist XMas greeting.

This is an atheist XMas greeting. Sorry it's in Spanish and kinda hard to translate. It can be found here:



http://sealoqueseaquesea.blogspot.com/2008/12/felices-fiestas.html



Estimados Todos,



Como saben, mis saludos de fin de año suelen tener un estilo burlón y a menudo recurro a travesuras retóricas que terminan menospreciando a nuestras importadas celebraciones por el solsticio de invierno boreal.



Para bien o para mal, en estas fechas aproximadamente… Continue

My "Church"

So, putting my toe into the whole atheism thing, I really have to give props to www.friendlyatheist.com I haven't read any of those fancy books like The God Delusion or End of Faith cuz I'z cain'ts readz and my adult on-set ADHD precludes me from any successful attempts at finishing a book. I was already a non-believer before putting a name to it, so, I saved myself $25.95 plus tax.



Hemant (aka friendlyatheist) once talked about altruism and how churches have a monopoly on… Continue

My Interesting Family

Although I was raised without religion, I was also not raised to be against it. My parents let me find my own way based on my interactions with the world and the people I met in it. This said, my dad is very much an atheist. He and I love to watch Richard Dawkins videos together, read science books, and watch documentaries like Friends of God and Jesus Camp and just shake our always questioning heads.



Recently, something interesting has happened within my secular household. My sister… Continue
