When I was a kid

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised God doesn’t work that way, so I stole
one and prayed for forgiveness.

PROOF THAT BIBLEGOD DOES NOT EXIST

According to Christians, God possesses three qualities: He is all-knowing, all-powerful and all-good. It is these three qualities that define Him as God, and it is these qualities that set Him apart from all the other false gods. Therefore, it logically follows that if Biblegod failed to possess these three qualities, he would not meet the accepted definition of God as proposed by Christians, and would be reduced to the rank of a false god. In other words, should Biblegod fail to meet the… Continue

My Morbid Musings

This morning I was talking to my mother and I mentioned that my ex boyfriend's grandmother had passed away yesterday. She inquired whether or not it had been sudden and I replied 'she was winding down for awhile'. My mother thought this was an... interesting way of putting it. But isn't that generally what death is? I mean, barring violence, accidents, sudden illnesses, etc., our bodies would eventually wind down, give out and we'd die. I'm not really all that fearful of my own mortality though… Continue

Why stop here on our evolution from the ape?

We share our genetic make-up with animals. So why be squeamish about using animal genes to enhance our species?



There was a time when the use of animal organs in medicine gave many of us an attack of the moral heebie-jeebies. It was considered bestial, degrading and, well, rather yucky. No longer. Even the conservative Senator Jesse Helms, suffering from a coronary condition in the 1990s, gratefully consented to having a pig's heart valve, and I suspect most of us, offered a choice… Continue

Blessed.

Blessed with all those who hate their guts ... because they love with all his heart. Blessed those who make the difference ... They are true to their nature. Blessed those who accept its darkness ... therefore appreciate the light of day. Blessed those who choose to be alone ... They are their own family. Blessed those who do not believe without asking questions ... because they will resist any lie. Blessed motherland those who do not have ... because his whole being is the home they need.… Continue

Why is it stupidity is so contemptible?



Seems like a rhetorical question, but stupid behavior and/or expression bring out our often animated contempt. To cool my own contempt, I tell myself, people have the right to be wrong. If that were not true, we could not learn, for that is exactly how we learn; by making mistakes, or watching others make them. But to elaborate more, I believe people have the right to be wrong AND must have the responsibility to live with the consequences,… Continue

How one Bible story (NOAHS ARK) proves the Bible is full of crap.. and why the heck is it so popular among kids?



While often thought of as a "Children's Story", this is far from it. Loaded with contradictions to what we have been told about God, this story raises some interesting questions.



Warning – this view might disturb some readers, but please read the full article to understand to context of the points being made before jumping to conclusion.



The well known story of Noah's Ark is often listed as a favorite, and often considered as… Continue

Parallel Universes: Are They More than a Figment of Our Imagination?



"The multiverse is no longer a model, it is a consequence of our models.”



~Aurelien Barrau, particle physicist at CERN



The Hollywood blockbuster, The Golden Compass, adapted from the first volume of Pullman's classic sci-fi trilogy, "His Dark Materials" portrays various universes as only one reality among many, but how realistic is this kind of classic sci-fi plot? While it hasn’t been proven yet, many highly respected and… Continue

How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci



Leonardo da Vinci was the ultimate multi-tasker: an accomplished scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. If you want to be a Renaissance Man (or Renaissance Woman), you can learn a lot from how Leonardo da Vinci lived and thought. Based on studying the life and work of this famous polymath[1] anyone can emulate da Vinci with the following… Continue

A person refuses to profess a faith in God will never achieve the nation's highest office



Atheists and agnostics are the only two groups of people in the US against whom discrimination is not only expected, but acceptable.



A black man may become president. A woman may become president. In short just about anybody may become president, but I guarantee that, in my lifetime, an person refuses to profess a faith in God will never achieve the nation's highest office.



As an atheist, I believe that a Muslim has a greater… Continue

Utah faces boycott after Mormon work for Prop 8

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah's growing tourism industry and the star-studded Sundance Film Festival are being targeted for a boycott by bloggers, gay rights activists and others seeking to punish the Mormon church for its aggressive promotion of California's ban on gay marriage.

It could be a heavy price to pay. Tourism brings in $6 billion a year to Utah, with world-class skiing, a spectacular red rock country and the film festival founded by Robert Redford, among other popular tourist… Continue

Pull the curtain...

A atheist friend brought this up and I thought I would share it. "Atheists need to come up with a fake religion and convince hundreds of thousands of people to join it. When we gain hundreds of religious members, we pull the curtain and let everyone that joined know that it was all made up, and show people how easy it is to be convinced to live a certain reality, even if that reality is not real. Just a thought."

Kiss Hank's Ass, By James Huber

This morning there was a knock at my door. When I answered the door I found a well-groomed, nicely dressed couple. The man spoke first.



John: "Hi! I'm John, and this is Mary."



Mary: "Hi! We're here to invite you to come kiss Hank's ass with us."



Me: "Pardon me?! What are you talking about? Who's Hank, and why would I want to kiss his ass?"



John: "If you kiss Hank's ass, he'll give you a million dollars; and if you don't, he'll kick the shit out of… Continue

Night Eyes

Night.

The darkened day.

The time of midnight life.

A new universe creeps silently to the stage.

Another world to see.

Another life to live.





The sun is now the moon's shadow.

The white orb's reflection through a pool of black.

The creatures, fluid and fading in form.

This swift veil of drear fogs our virgin eyes.



Dawn.

A burst of light wakens the horizon.

A wave of sunny demise.

Another murder of the shadow… Continue

And the Planchette Remains Still

I just used a Ouija (Talking) Board for the second time in my life, and for the second time of my life the Planchette (pointer) remained, regrettably, still. It's amazing how many horrible stories are apocryphally accepted. If a particle board with letters on it, accompanied by a plastic 'Planchette', could affect the spirit world, I'm so incredibly surprised, as should you be, that our modern science hasn't found a way. Maybe we should tell them about the Ouija. (The Mass Produced version ...… Continue

40 Unwritten Rules to Live By

1. Never ask a woman if she wants to have sex by asking her if she wants to have sex.



2. It is more important to have good health insurance than good health.



3. Don't bluff more than once in a poker game with friends.



4. When one of the big bosses at work unexpectedly says something really cheery and friendly to you, he means absolutely nothing by it. Not even if he's your father.



5. Wear as much black as you can. It makes you look slimmer and cooler.… Continue

I've Lost My MySpace and Some Friends

Due to a minor infraction at MySpace.com (ie. being an atheist and speaking out,) my account was deleted. I opened another account, just to keep in touch with old friends, and marked it 'private'.



So far only a few have accepted my friend request.



While this could be a coincidence, I can't help feeling that some of them just couldn't reconcile my beliefs .. or, non-beliefs. I was never critical of them directly, but I made quite a few anti-evangelical postings (usually… Continue

Atheist buses ready to roll across country after making £31,000 in a day

Atheist adverts declaring "there's probably no God" could be placed on buses across the country after a fundraising drive made five times the target amount in just one day.



Even religious groups donated money to the cause in the belief that the campaign, highlighted in The Daily Telegraph, would encourage people to think more about faith and could actually enhance support for Christianity.



Organisers needed to raise just £2,750 from supporters in order to pay for adverts… Continue

Creationists declare war over the brain

"YOU cannot overestimate," thundered psychiatrist Jeffrey Schwartz, "how threatened the scientific establishment is by the fact that it now looks like the materialist paradigm is genuinely breaking down. You're gonna hear a lot in the next calendar year about... how Darwin's explanation of how human intelligence arose is the only scientific way of doing it... I'm asking us as a world community to go out there and tell the scientific establishment, enough is enough! Materialism needs to start… Continue
