Don't Reply to Well-followed Christians: A Twitter Lesson

But then this happened:

(At least chickens have an excuse, eh?)

I learnt a lesson that day:…

Why is nobody talking about Kony being a Christian?

Hey everyone. 

With Kony 2012 making the rounds all over Facebook, Twitter, and (late as usual) traditional media, I've noticed that nobody talks about Joseph Kony being the leader of a radical and violent Christian group. 

Honestly, the most I've seen is some people saying that his movement is based on "his own interpretation of the Ten Commandments", which seems like the classic "oh, they're just misusing religion" argument so often put forward by apologists.

Does…

Google Plus requirement for real names is a red herring.

Google Plus (Google+) stirred up a controversy by deleting, wholesale, accounts created under pseudonyms instead of under real names. Google+ acknowledged their mistakes and is now formulating an official policy for naming conventions on their new social network.



There are legitimate reasons that users might need to use pseudonyms. The most obvious and crucial one is anonymity for political dissidents and social activists. Without that anonymity, activism can be too dangerous to…

A weak argument for Atheism

from Martin S Pribble

"The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike." Delos Banning McKown

This quote has been appearing on Twitter from numerous accounts with the hashtags "#atheism #air" appended to the ending. This does one thing, and it's not in favour of the intended or original meaning or context of the quote. What it illustrates is that atheists… Continue

We Are Secular Humanists

According to secular humanists, human values should comprise the commitment to improve universal well-being. Ethical principles should be assessed by their effects on people, not by how well they conform to preconceived ideas of right and wrong.



Secular humanists reject that values and ethics are imposed from any deity. In that it echoes simple atheism. Secular humanism goes further challenging humans to develop their own values, and maintains that through a process of value inquiry,… Continue

The Improbabilities and Contradictions of the Exodus

Monicks tweeted that one reason we know the bible isn't true is the lack of ancient Egyptian historical evidence for the Exodus. I didn't see the full exchange of tweets, but saw enough to know she was discussing/arguing with a few who disagreed. Some other things were tossed into the mix by skeptics, like the lack of archeological evidence they left on the desert, the improbabilities, and the logistical impossibilities of the whole… Continue

How Iran Is Changing The World Before Our Eyes

Every now and then I like to drift away from my usual topic of the evils of religion and touch on important political events. Well, it seems the time has certainly come to step away from talk of religion once again. I've said again and again that the importance of what is happening in Iran right now simply can not be overstated. It is likely to be viewed as one of the most important events of this generation for many reasons. I'd like to take a moment to discuss exactly why I feel these events… Continue
