Out Of The Randomness

One argument that I tackled in an earlier post was the fine tuning argument. I thought about it for a while, and I thought of one of my interests: Astronomy. I realized that there are thousands of galaxies and millions of stars and planets out there. So are we really "fine tuned"? Why us and not any one of the other millions of planets? Why haven't we found life on other planets? For those of you who do not know much about cosmology or astronomy there is a certain Goldilocks zone that a…

Was a Catholic

I was raised as a Catholic and I will explain what it meant to me. The brainwashing begins at a very young age. It all starts with the Christening reserved for infants or babtism for others, usually at a later age. I would tell you about my Christening, but it's something I can't remember. It was sort of like an induction into the church.

A few years later they send you to Sunday school (which was actually on a Saturday) or catechism. Around the age of 5 or 6 we went to this class and…

Hitler was a Catholic

Christians on the far right who want to soothe themselves with the untruth that Hitler was an Atheist need think again. Hitler was a Roman Catholic with a profound interest in occult matters. That he had support of influential church leaders is also an unavoidable fact. It is also interesting to note that as a young man the future dictator and mass murder considered the priesthood - something he shared in common with Stalin.

We are at war with Islam. It may not serve our immediate foreign policy objectives for our political leaders to openly acknowledge this fact, but it is unambiguously so.

Atheism: Misunderstood

This originally appeared on http://matthewfunti.me

 

Repetitive arguments had with those faithful to the antiquated myths of ancient Palestinian lore betray a direct ignorance of the subject matter in addition to a complex misunderstanding of related and opposing philosophies. Committed antitheists amongst us will shrug that statement off with a casual confirmation and ask what else would I expect from a group of people so…

Disbelieving Believers

This originally appeared on http://matthewfunti.me

 

As the expanding world of scientific inquiry grows with exponential understanding of the natural world, it's getting easier and easier to simply dismiss the nonsense comprising organized religion.



In 2011, you need not be a biologist to understand that evolution is a fact. You need not be a historian to understand the laughably false propositions of the holy…

Lent/Easter; Not as fun as No-Guilt/Christmas!

Today is Ash Wednesday. That means the start of Lent. And wouldn't you know it, my favorite e-card website, someecards.com, has provided a number of cards which finely encapsulate how I'm feeling during this time.




The biggest thing I don't like about Lent, is the biggest thing I don't like about Christianity in general: the constant, overwhelming feeling of shame…
