Religion, Science, The Afterlife, Reason, The Universe, Existence, Arrogance & Compassion - A Rant.

As an atheist I find prayer and worship abhorrent ideas for someone to embrace.

Most people who believe in a cosmic engineer with grand plans for each of us embrace their beliefs for one reason only; because the idea of finite existence instills in them a paralyzing fear. Most theists, of course, will never admit this because they are not aware of it on a conscious level. The fear is too primal. But if their religion was pulled out from under their feet, discarded, proven to be…

'Hitler was an Atheist!'

You'll likely all have heard this argument at some point. It's a classic.

Outlined rather well by http://www.godlessgeeks.com/LINKS/GodProof.htm, it goes something like this:

"(1) Person X, a well-known atheist, was morally inferior to the rest of us.

(2) Therefore, God exists."

It's just poetic, isn't it?

So... Assuming Hitler was an…

  • I don't have to defend my God! - I have no answers and I don't have to have any justification for my beliefs nor am I required to justify any of this to myself. I just feel God or know it's true and how DARE you question that! This allows a theist to close the argument, have the last word, and walk away feeling proud and good.

Willful Ignorance - The Key To Insanity?

Hey everyone. I got into a really heated debate today with my sister, a theist, who sends $300 dollars a month to Joyce Meyers and claims that she's anointed by God. When I found out that my sister was sending money to that ministry I told her that she's no different than Benny Hinn (whom she says is terrible and a fraud) and that she's been investigated before for several things related to money. I offered to show her the info and my sister flat out refused, got angry and started…

Did I Miss a Memo?

About a year ago I was sitting on the bus taking me from partial-hospitalization for depression and anxiety back home for the night, when the girl in front of me said something.



"Isn't Atheism, like, worshiping the devil or something?"



Stifling a scoff, I replied "No. It's just the absence of a religion. You know, because theism is religion and adding an a- to it means it's 'without.'"



I sat there in silence for the rest of the way home, amazed at my encounter… Continue
