"Objectivity vs Subjectivity in debate" from Atheist Climber

From "Atheist Climber" blog,



Rembrandt's "Two Philosophers"



There seems to be a lot of confusion for people on what is a compelling argument, and what is just muddying the waters of debate. So often, when in discussions around the existence of gods, the yeasayer will turn to personal experiences of things… Continue

Teetering on the Edge of the Wagon

So, last weekend, I went to this giant conference in Anaheim, CA called RE Congress (http://www.recongress.org) It for Catholic Religious Educators. As I've said before, I still spend a good part of my time helping my mom out in the church, and this including going to conferences such as these.
To tell the truth, I had a great time. Of course, it was only a five day trip, with 1.5 days spent at the conference, 1.5 days spent sight seeing in and around…

"Some Thoughts on Change – The Global Atheist Convention" - from Atheist Climber blog

It is difficult to talk on the subject of religion without sounding, to some, like a fanatic. Some people I have encountered in life think I am as fanatical in my disbelief as a fundamentalist Christian might be in theirs. Some even say that my Atheism is a religion in itself, or at least that my fervour for atheism is on par…

"A Reason for Reason" - From Atheist Climber Blog

There has been a lot of writing about the “Global Atheist Convention – The Rise Of Atheism” since its completion on Sunday afternoon, so most things that can be said have already been said. There were some good reports in the…

My Sordid Love Affair with Liberal Churches

I've sort of talked about this before, but it seems to be a subject I just can't seem to escape: The ever-present allure of 'Liberal' Christians. Namely, the one's who accept (or, at least, don't outright reject) gays and lesbians, evolution, and have more lax policies on things like Reconciliation (Confession) and the ultimate, unquestioning power of the Vatican (they tend to question it).


I have heard some different ideas on why it's so easy for some people to be 'sucked…

Yay! Some atheism in a fanfic - LOL. :D

If you don't know what Fan Fiction is, read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fan_fiction



Anyone a Gilmore Girls fan? More specifically a Jess/Rory fan? If you are like those of us who think Literati (Jess & Rory) were definitely one of the most amazing TV ships ever, you probably would LOVE this fanfic by MissGoalie75 on fanfiction.net. It's called "Footnotes and Annotations" and she has taken a bunch of scenes from the show… Continue

Of Alternate Universes and Picobiliphytes

When I became interested in The Big Bang Theory, at some point it occurred to me that if there was one Big Bang, why couldn't there have been more, in the past, at this instant for all we know, and indefinitely into the future? Then I came across the multiverse hypothesis. I have two issues with this idea, first officially coined by William James in 1895. My first question is whether alternate hypothetical universes would really qualify as other universes. Whatever the origin of… Continue

"Haiti Gets Bibles – Needs Hospitals" - via Atheist Climber blog

Our universe is a place of massive physical forces, and given the microscopic size of humanity in the scale of it all, it’s not surprising that we get caught up in the midst of these forces. And when we do, lives and infrastructure are lost on a relatively massive scale.



In 2004, the Indian Ocean Tsunami, caused by a massive earthquake off the west coast of Sumatra, causing massive devastation of homes and communities, and taking more than 230,000 lives in Indonesia, Sri Lanka,… Continue

The Never Ending Story!

It the Never ending stooooooooorrryyyyyyyy!!!! (And for those of you who have not seen the movie, Don't Watch It!)



Atheism Vs Theism is an old debate, a long and old debate.



I am a dedicated Atheist, I will fight with Theism on every front, but this old tired process of Atheism being the minority is getting on my Nerves!



Why must Atheism continue to be the minority?



The Debate reminds me of an analogy: Two kids are sitting in a sandbox, pulling on a… Continue

The Age of 'Theists' is Over!

Theism (As per Dictonary.com) is “the belief in one God as the creator and ruler of the universe, without rejection of revelation”. Those who follow this age old belief are, as I call them, 'Theists'. What good has 'Theists' offered to the world? Well, they have offered only destruction to this world. They have killed MILLIONS over petty, 'Religious Wars'. They stoop to under-handed attempts to block out any thought that goes against anything they say, under their false banner of… Continue

A confident Atheist....and yet...

This isn't a confliction that is tearing me apart by any means. I have a terrific relationship with my family, they all know I'm atheist...even though I never really have had a direct conversation. They never push their views on me. Everything works. But...



To set it up...My mother and sisters are Catholic. I went to church with them until I was 13, but I never believed.(I even tried out other churches after that..but still never believed). They've all gone their whole lives, but… Continue

"Why do we care?" - from Atheist Climber blog

From Atheist Climber blog



Logic. Reason. Rationality.



These are the 3 tools I use on a daily basis to make sense of the world. Without these tools, the world decays into a mess of suppositions and superstitions.



This means that whenever I look at the world, I have a lifetime's worth of knowledge by which I can make assessments on what is… Continue

Happy New Years / Happy Monkey 2010

Best wishes and a Happy New Year / Happy Monkey to all of my atheist friends :-).





My wish for this year is that all of our atheist communities around the world continue their steady consolidation and growth.





This is a huge achievement for a community which holds no beliefs in common and is simply getting together on the grounds that we lack a belief in gods.





We're not sheep and so our biggest challenge will be to learn to not only accept and… Continue

And just like that, I was dead.

No, seriously! I was dead, just for a few minutes, but dead nonetheless. Long story short, on Sept. 25th an allergic reaction to a supposedly innocuous pill, caused my throat to close, shutting off my breathing and within minutes I was dead, literally.



But this rant is not about my ordeal from that night, which I can’t deny, was scary and surreal, and ultimately ended up with me waking up in the hospital, incredibly tired, with a sore throat and an extremely bruised chest, after 7… Continue
