"It's OK, it's part of my religion" from Atheist Climber blog

I published this piece at my blog and thought you all might appreciate it.



As you may know, my universe has no room for the possibility of a god. And in general I don't care what other people think and believe as long as their suppositions and practices don't affect me in any way. You can believe in fairies and unicorns and believe you have to bay at the moon 2 times a night to stop from… Continue

"Alone in the Universe" from Atheist Climber blog

from Atheist Climber Blog



We live in an imperfect universe, one where the objects that inhabit it are constantly under the strain of outside forces. And while, as was pointed out in the comments from my previous blog, there are moments where systems may work together cooperatively, these… Continue

"An Atheist and his Natural Universe" from Atheist Climber blog

from Atheist Climber blog



I have, in the past tried to put forward my thoughts on the idea that all things that happen in a universe are natural. There is no such thing as an unnatural act, because when you look at THIS world on a universal scale, it is little more than a small speck of dust… Continue

"Pitfalls in debate - the difficulties we face" from Atheist Climber Blog



As a person who discusses his beliefs mostly with the like-minded, I find it difficult to speak to someone with a very different viewpoint to my own in relation to religion, science, the paranormal and the metaphysical. I generally won't stand by and let what I perceive as foolishness escape challenged, because I think misinformation is… Continue

"Science, atheism and the search for more" - From Atheist Climber Blog



One of the innate human characteristics that separates us from other animals on earth is our insatiable need to find out "why". Our natural need to seek for things like food and a mate is shared with other animals, but the questioning of why things happen is a unique to humans. It is ingrained in us, from the first day we start searching… Continue

"At the edge of knowledge" from Atheist Climber Blog



We know nothing.



The collective knowledge of all the people on earth that have ever lived is but a drop in the ocean of all possible knowledge in the universe. (1) And the amount of knowledge any one person has is… Continue

"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

Irresponsible Arrogance

By Dennis Renner



I imagine I will upset quite a few people with this blog. My purpose in writing it is to cause people to think. It's time humanity took a long look into the looking glass.…

"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…

Greg House M.D atheist & My creationist co-worker strategy

So I am hoping someone can clue me in on last night's episode of House. He was reading that book of sermons by his biological father, but please tell me, or atleast reassure me he is not losing his atheist touch. It would be a shame to have those right wing nuts at Fox telling the writers to make him more spiritual or it gets cancelled. Fox has been known to cancel some really good shows (anyone remember Firefly and Arrested Development?). Ok, so that may be a huge leap in logic, and I… Continue

Rebirth

Well! How to begin.



I guess I'll start with my motivation.



When I was a kid, I'd gone to my local Church every Sunday. I didn't know why I went, I wasn't all to sure that there was a god- even at that time, but I did believe in the history that the Bible claimed to have happened and so I divulged myself into that.

Growing up, I had always been alone and felt a little isolated, so I felt comforted by the warmth I felt from the Church every day I… 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

"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

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

Mental abuse - Children are a special case - How can we defend them?

While talking with my little brother (Sophomore in high school) this evening I asked to see his Biology book. I grew up home schooled with the notorious A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education) curriculum so I should have been ready for what I saw.



- "Biology for Christian Schools" (Third Edition) by Thomas E. Porch and Brad R. Batdorf - 2005 BJU Press



Of all the disturbing things in this school book I've decided only to quote the opening to Chapter 8, The History of… Continue
