High School Graduation: Attack of the Fundies - Public Prayer During Ceremony

I posted this yesterday on my Facebook page**; however I decided to post it here as well, in its entirety. I suspect that there are fellow atheists who find this to be an especially frustrating time because of the continuing fight over sanctioned prayer at high school graduations. At a minimum you may find yourself irritated and disgusted with this whole, ongoing, mess - such as the story of the Valedictorian in Pickens County, SC.

Or your…

To feed or not to feed?

Just a question to all Atheists out there. Should I feed christian trolls? I have been dealing with... OK slightly fucking with a troll on Ray Comforts blog (Atheist Central) as well as my YT channel. Now I know you can never win with trolls they just keep on... Well trolling. And most times I do, and have, ignored them in the past. But Recently I have just had this urge to go at a few of them and not let up. Return the fire if you will.

 

So, should I continue with this…

Now Is Not The Time For Atheists To Back Down

Why We Need To Kick It Up A Notch...



The American Atheists, Inc. lawsuit regarding the 17-foot-tall Christian Cross Memorial has generated a lot of buzz about the method that some of us use to advance our cause. There are those who are adamant that we should be non-aggressive, respectful and tolerant of those who hold religious beliefs and that we should not be outspoken. However, there are those of us who just cannot adopt the “live and let live” philosophy, because the favor is not… Continue

Another reason to leave religion

Found this via twitter - 





Do atheists have better sex? Yes. According to science, that is -- and more specifically, according to the recently released "Sex and Secularism" study.

In January 2011, organizational psychologist Darrel Ray, Ed.D. (psychologist for 30 years and author ofThe God Virus as well as two books on psychology) and Amanda Brown (undergraduate at Kansas University, focused on sexuality and sex therapy) conducted a…

Book Review of “Moral Combat: Black Atheists, Gender Politics, and the Values Wars”

By Don Barbera

Sometimes, preaching to the choir is necessary to make it aware they may be singing in the wrong key, from the wrong hymnal and in the wrong church. Black atheist author Siviku…

So much for the “inerrant” word of god.

And here you have it, yet another version of the inerrant word of god is on the works, because we (well, not we, they - but you know what I mean) need to make the bible make sense. Yes, that's exactly what I meant to say.



So, we are in for a new set of semantics and mythological animals brought to life by the editors that will probably change "unicorns" for "rhinos" - who knows! Maybe even Noah's Ark story will make sense this time, no?  Okay, sarcasm is not very easy to… Continue

So, you wan't a war on Christmas...

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)

 

In the United States there is a widespread idea that there is an ongoing "war on Christmas" waged by atheists and in general, people who prefer a secular government in which every person has the same rights. As usual, this idea is proposed by the whiny religious right (mainly conservative Christians).

Sometimes they will…

Ann Druyan, talking about her husband, Carl Sagan



“When my husband died, because he was so famous & known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — & ask me if Carl changed at the end & converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see…

If Atheists acted like Christians

I took my children to the park last weekend. The weather was perfect for it. Well we were not alone. There was a church gathering there of some sort. I was playing with with my sons, minding my own beezwax. When this middle-aged woman holding a bible in her hands, invited us to her church and told us how much jesus loved me and my children. I told her the same thing I tell any theist who feels the need to tell me about there religion. I'm not interested. I also told her I was spending quality… Continue

No Voice - Another Skycomet Poem

So many words I wish to say

And yet, the moment I try,

You scream in pain and baffle me

With the rage in your eye.

I guess I know the rule now,

But you could have said the truth!

Instead you lied and said that

You were open to discussion too!

But now I know the hard way

That "unspoken rule."

To critique God is not allowed!

You want to be a fool.

And when I try to…

Why Do Atheists Meet Together?

A lot of atheists in the United States come from religious families and communities. Coming from that kind of situation, we have to deal with just about everyone around us telling us our way of viewing the world is bad and evil. If religion is very important to us, as it was to me, we also deal with our own internalized indoctrination.…

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
