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

My Christmas Message from "An Atheist's Perspective" - Via Atheist Climber Blog

“I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.” - Frank Lloyd Wright



Every year at around this time I feel the need to reflect on the year passed, and be thankful. While this may be trite, I do see the end of years celebrations as an important time, a time for reflection. We all feel it to some degree.



Why is it that we feel the need to reflect and be thankful? It's a weird sensation, because I don't have a God to thank for my existence. I don't believe in a… Continue

In Heaven Everything Is Fine - From Atheist Climber

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is."



Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy




As you may have read previously on my blog, I'm a big fan of perspective. I like to have an idea of where I am and who I am, what it means to be alive and what it means to be… Continue

There is a War Going On, Choose Your Weapon

Yesterday I mentioned that I thought that one of the best ways to debunk Christianity was with Christianity. There are so many other ways like philosophy, science, skepticism etc..but when ex ministers like John Loftus at Debunking Christianity (ex William Lane Craig student), Dan Barker or the folks at ex minister.org deconstruct Christian apologetics from with in, with their understanding, I think it is one of the more potent weapons in our war of reason.



"Mere Christians" complain… Continue

My "Spiritual" Journey: From Agnostic to Christian to Atheist to Freedom

I suppose I have been skeptical of religion all my life. An early childhood experience at a local Pentecostal church, attended by what seemed like normal sane adults, quickly deteriorated into a disturbing circus (initiated by a fiery southern preacher accompanied by a gleeful organist working in unison) of: unintelligible speech, flopping on the floor, fainting, crying, and pitiful entreaties to god for for his forgiveness from the ecstatic congregation. Even at that early age I found it… Continue

Victorian Government Refuses Funding for Atheist Convention in Melbourne

The Victorian State Government has basically ignored the request for funding for the "Rise of Atheism" Convention in Melbourne next March, while allocating $4.5m in funds for the "The Parliament of the World’s Religions".



This decision to basically ignore the funding request shows gross contempt for Atheism and Atheists alike in favour of religion and religious organisations.



See article posted at the convention's website… Continue

Home is where I want to be, but I guess I'm already there

“The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us — there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation of a distant memory, as if we were falling from a great height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.” - Carl Sagan, Cosmos, 1980



Without perspective we wallow blindly through life, without empathy, understanding and the ability to apply knowledge. Perspective is not… Continue

Ignosticism & Irreligion

Ignosticism & Irreligion



Ignosticism



* Dependence on a particular view concerning the word God:



Ignosticism, or igtheism, is the theological position that every other theological position (including agnosticism) assumes too much about the concept of God and many other theological concepts. The word "ignosticism" was coined by Sherwin Wine, a rabbi and a founding figure in Humanistic Judaism.



It can be defined as encompassing two related views… Continue

What first made you become an Atheist?

I went to a place called the AOG (Assembly Of God) it was here that i thought i would give religion a try

however i had everyone coming up to me with this big hollywood type smile, old ladies hugging me young guys shaking my hand etc.



The preaching started and certain verses like you can be saved were spoken to which the pastor would look right at me when saying those certain types of verses, then the collection plate came around and people were flipping money in it all over the… Continue

The Out Campaign: Scarlet Letter of Atheism


Reposted from:

http://richarddawkins.net/article,1471,The-Out-Campaign,Richard-Dawkins



In the dark days of 1940, the pre-Vichy French government was warned by its generals "In three weeks England will have her neck wrung like a chicken." After the Battle of Britain, Winston Churchill growled his response: "Some chicken; some neck!" Today, the bestselling books of 'The New… Continue

Do you read www.friendlyatheist.com? I do, that's how I found out about Think Atheist. How funny is it to see Christian advertising helping to pay the hosting cost of an Atheist website? I wonder if he has… Continue

Theists have sunk to a new low....

I have already posted this article on my regular blog: 1azylizzie.wordpress.com however because of the subject matter I thought it was worth sharing here too, so here it is:



As you all may know, Australia is in the middle of its most tragic and devastating peacetime disaster in it’s history. Bushfires are raging in our southeast state - Victoria, with many of them believed to be started by arsonists.



Whole families have lost their lives, and entire communities have been… Continue

Trying to figure somthing out.

Due to accusations of trolling let me say this first. I am not trolling, I am honestly trying to figure something out here.



The problem I am facing right now is that I have had compelling experiences that point to spirits existing.

However I see that it is also possible that I have figured things out on my own and just projected on something imaginary. I am not sure which.



The experiences that I have had in the past are as follows.

1. When I was 16 I learned in a… Continue

1st Entry

Just found this site via twitter and Sophies pic of a baby atheist dragon (so thanks Sophie).

I am an atheist and I have been for some time. I am a rational person and I find it very hard to discuss religion with people as I find myself dealing with agressive people. I try not to be confrontational or agressive myself but I often wonder are people getting angry with me as I represent their doubts and fears.

Do that see in me what they deep down know to be true.
