The Many Paths to Atheism

I'm active on a few sites and there seems to be a few truths. One is that many atheists were at one time religionists. The ones that were once religionists seem to think that they have a monopoly on escaping religion. Their path out is the only way to escape religion. It's not unlike AA members. You must follow these 12 steps and keeping coming back because it works. Much like AA isn't THE way (or statistically, a way) there are many paths out of religion.

A beautiful summation of Atheism

First off, very little of this will be in my own words, but in the words of Sam Harris. This is basically a transcript of the opening speech that Sam gave in a debate about religion. I know that if I tried I could not put it more beautifully, simply or more elegantly than he did. If I was tempted to call anything the poetry of rational arguments, this would be it.

Criticisms of the Cosmological Argument for the Existence of God

The Cosmological Argument is an argument for the existence of god using the Cosmos as evidence.

A Wedge Document of Our Own

Adriana put up an excellent vid on Intelligent Design. It's not getting attention likely to the title because it's so absurd. The absurdity lends to the great speech that goes on within. I used this vid this morning as bait on Facebook and tested the waters of a new direction in the ID debate. Call it the religion that it is, and use that to wedge out Christians.
