atheism on the TV

Atheism featured twice on Australian TV tonight.

First on the ABC nightly news where they discussed the UK Atheist Bus Campaign, and how the Australian one had been knocked back [by the advertising company, they could end up with heaps of flack because of this].

Secondly on SBS RocKwiz program, contestants reason he didn't guess "The Lords Prayer" by Sister Janet Mead - "atheist".

I've put the links to the on-line vids on my blog (shameless blog promotion)

Science is NOT a religion!

I'm sick of Christians confusing Atheism with Satanism. Unlike religion, Atheism is based in science which is nothing more than unbiased observation of the universe around us. Everyone in the world, religious or not, "practices" science all the time just by observing their surroundings and forming an opinion.



Religion, on the other hand, is the magical mythology created to explain any gaps that we find in our observation. An Atheist would describe such a gap as "unkown", and wait for… Continue

Condescend to the Messenger

David Waters of WashingtonPost.com's On Faith blog takes a mostly-fair look at Michael Newdow's inauguration lawsuit by seeing what effect the messengers have on the substance of the case.

. . . I suspect the lawsuit would have generated less condescension if it had been filed by the…

A Drank Conversation with my Best Friend

I'm new to the community. Running on little sleep, lots of post-holiday annoyances, and a handful of sodas that should have been diet and caffeine free. Regardless, I stumbled here... took in some great reads and made a handful of replies. I've got a bit of a formal dash to my writing as I'm polishing off the last year of a liberal arts degree. <-- I'm boring, but my story is interesting.



Having come back to my hometown from about 90 miles away, I was glad to see my friends. Of… Continue

Pull the curtain...

A atheist friend brought this up and I thought I would share it. "Atheists need to come up with a fake religion and convince hundreds of thousands of people to join it. When we gain hundreds of religious members, we pull the curtain and let everyone that joined know that it was all made up, and show people how easy it is to be convinced to live a certain reality, even if that reality is not real. Just a thought."

I've Lost My MySpace and Some Friends

Due to a minor infraction at MySpace.com (ie. being an atheist and speaking out,) my account was deleted. I opened another account, just to keep in touch with old friends, and marked it 'private'.



So far only a few have accepted my friend request.



While this could be a coincidence, I can't help feeling that some of them just couldn't reconcile my beliefs .. or, non-beliefs. I was never critical of them directly, but I made quite a few anti-evangelical postings (usually… Continue
