For once Pat Robertson has it right..

By David Edwards

Televangelist Pat Robertson on Monday explained to his viewers that “sophisticated” Americans received less miracles because they had learned “things that says God isn’t real” like evolution.

On Monday’s episode of CBN’s The 700 Club, Robertson responded to a viewer who wanted to know why “amazing miracles (people raised from…

Scientist: Evolution debate will soon be history

NEW YORK (AP) — Richard Leakey predicts skepticism over evolution will soon be history.

Not that the avowed atheist has any doubts himself.

Sometime in the next 15 to 30 years, the Kenyan-born paleoanthropologist expects scientific discoveries will have accelerated to the…

Keep God out of Africa

Developing countries with low literacy rates and poor education systems are bastardising moderate beliefs resulting in horrific and widespread crimes against humanity.

This post is going to read as part history lesson, part reminder about why religious groups need to stop punting their own agendas in African countries, regardless of their intentions.



I have always felt that notions of gods needed to be eradicated from Africa, but seeing an article by Ken Ham entitled… Continue

The Seedy Religious Underbelly of South Africa

In the last couple of years I have experienced a gradual but rude awakening to the grizzly, spine-tingling reality of South Africa's religious situation.



The existence of Bible translations into KiSwahili, isiXhosa, Zulu, Chichewa, Tswana, Shona etc is frightening. African cultures notoriously cling to superstitions as well as ancestral and tribal beliefs. Combining this with Christianity is resulting in an ongoing history of bad ideas. I have covered many of these issues before, but… Continue

A Magazine Non-Christians Need to be Warned About

It's as though Christians know non-Christians will not pick up one of their magazines and read it, which means that they have a free pass to write as much superstitious nonsense and cram as much supernatural guilt into every edition of Joy! Magazine as possible. Every non-believer who needs verification about the absurdity of the Christian faith definitely needs to skim through… Continue

The Role of American Evangelists in the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill

By Ed Brayton and a story in the New York Times. I just think the story deserves as much coverage as possible so I'm reposting the article from Ed Brayton's blog here. I have been particularly attentive to changes, causes, and events surrounding the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill and this story,… Continue

Prayer my ass

My stepson is a devout Catholic. It bothers him that I have an atheist website and a presence on several atheist forums. He has an account on my member forum, at AtheistExile.com, and follows the conversations there as a lurker instead of a participant.



He told me I should try prayer, just for a little while, to see if they come true or not.



I never approach my family members on the subject of religion but if they approach me about it, I don't hold back unless I see them… Continue

Christianity in Africa = pouring acid down kids throats

Virtually everyone knows about the Salem Witch Trials here in the US. People were accused of witchcraft due to benign reasons such as their family member falling sick which is always the action of a witch. Now it was just a matter of making the accusation and the game was on. 150 were arrested with 19 being executed for witchcraft. It's such a shame that virtually all of us today know of the story.
