My Education in Shambles

http://www.indiegogo.com/quartersforcourtney?a=770980

 I want to be an English teacher. It's been my dream for quite a while, ever since I tutored 9th graders in 12th grade. I want to give kids a love of…

Female Christianity

http://brainhulklogicsmash.blogspot.com/

----------------------------------------------------------------------

From time to time, we'll have Christians going door to door in our neighborhood trying to sell their religion to everyone and anyone who will listen. One thing that surprises me is how often the proselytizers are women or young girls. This surprises me, because religion often treats women as second…

The Difference Between Philosophy And Religion

 
The Difference Between Philosophy And Religion



I am calling myself atheistic as a part of being apistic.  But there are many people, who call themselves atheists in spite of being religious.  They do not consider this as a contradiction, as long as their preferred religion does not include personalized deities. Buddhism is an example, which is wrongly defined as a philosophy by those alleged…

Slavery Is Fine as Long as It Gets People Closer to God!

So last night, I got into a very heated, very emotional debate with someone on Facebook.  In case you didn't know, that's what Facebook is for.  You get on there, you find some post that some friend has put up, and you troll the shit out of it.  That, obviously, is a joke, but it can sometimes be seen as truth.  I took screen captures of the conversation with the woman I was "debating," but in order to keep identities private, I will not post those screen caps, even though I feel her…

The Fall of Atheism

Is it just me, or does everybody on here sound like pathetic politicians, just trying to make themselves sound more believable putting others down than proving themselves? Has anybody heard of the phrase, "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar?," or has the complex design of human intelligence been reduced to stupidity?

Blogging for logic // Religious assumptions

Greetings all!



I haven't posted on TA for a while but have been lurking the site and enjoying everyone's videos and blogs. Regrettably, my free time has been at a premium, and jumping in to discussions right at the deep end is what has ultimately suffered. That said, I've recently decided to try my hand at blogging as a stress outlet, and to put my usual ramblings and reactions into written words. My most recent posting was of a theological nature, so I figured I'd share it with…

Reason Rally Interview

So I "Googled" myself tonight to see what would come up and I found this article from the Catholic News Service. They interviewed me at the Reason Rally back in March. It's cool to see my quotes in the article and I'm proud of everything I said during that interview :-)

I just thought I'd share. Let me know what you think of the article!

Thus Saith Eve - by chris wind

And another New Book Announcement (and again, yes, I had a hand in publishing this)

Thus Saith Eve, by chris wind: A collection of ‘epistles’, each written from the point of view of one of the women from The Bible, as if she had a contemporary feminist consciousness. For example, (my fav), Eve does not accept blame for choosing the apple, for choosing knowledge over obedience.

The Blasphemy Tour

New Book Announcement (full disclosure here - I had a hand in publishing this)

The Blasphemy Tour, by Jass Richards

Two Canadian atheists go on a cross-country speaking tour of American Bible Colleges... Irreverent. Definitely irreverent.

The Blasphemy Tour — where philosophy essay meets stand-up comedy.

(In The Road Trip Dialogues, the prequel, Rev and Dylan are charged with blasphemy for adding “‘Blessed are they that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the…

Atheism and music

I was chatting to a guy yesterday and religion came up in conversation. The usual "so what religion are you?" question was asked by him and I said I was not religious. He was not sure what I meant by 'not religious' so I told him that I was an atheist and did not believe that there was a god and that all religions are made by man.



This is when it got interesting, he said - "Oh, so you listen to heavy metal and stuff..."??? HUH??



For the first time (or one of the very…

The Tyranny Vs the Humans of LGBT

Hello world, I am Réasúnach! As you can well see I have called this blog “The Tyranny vs the Humans of LGBT”. The tyranny is indeed in reference to the majority of mainstream religions practiced on this planet to this day, mainly Christianity & Islam. 

I quite very purposely use the phrase “the humans of the LGBT”. Too often are the LGBT treated as less than human or second class citizens,which by the way there is no justification. I recall once coming across an…

Secular left

I was dieheartend at atheistcon in Melbourne this year by a number of things: Hirsti Ali suggested that Islam was 'our' biggest concern, as did Harris; Mr Deity referenced our government before retracting in recognition of the fact he was speaking in Australia; Eugene Scott was introduced as representing the 'National Centre for Science Education (NCSE), we, in Australia don't have such a thing; Lesile Canold suggested that ' this is a numbers game' and that we, the atheists, should be good…

Lack of Atheist Support for Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson?

Let's start of with a few basic identifying points: I am an anti-theist gnostic atheist. I understand what I am implying by claiming 'gnostic'. Imagine atheism is as the theory of gravity is. Would you contest someone stating gravity is a fact despite not knowing every tiny detail? If so, then nothing I am willing to expel energy saying will change your mind on my gnostic atheism. Some my wonder why I'm making a defense about this here. My point will be clear as I progress.

The…

The Spiritual Atheist

 In my short time as an Atheist - less than a year now - I've heard lots of people talking about spirituality and how Atheists have none. This isn't just coming from believers either. Atheists, on several occasions, have contested it. I wasn't sure why, really. I consider myself a spiritual Atheist. I'll explain why later, but let's look at the word "spirit" and how it's used so that I can better define what I'm talking about here.



  The word "spirit" comes from…

Why Christians are hypocrites when it comes to censorship laws and a couple of other notes: (A blogpost from my website)

We are all aware of the bills being currently passed nationally such as ACTA or PIPA, or most notably the recent demise of SOPA, it is well noted in the press about how everyone of different creeds and backgrounds aligned with each other to fight the good fight, which of course it is, because why would we want to stop our freedom to say and do what we want?

Though recently one thing popped into my head the other day while surfing the net and researching…

Lottery Tickets and God's Diary--and Hello All!

Hi all!  I just joined and I'm glad to be part of the site.  Recently (just a few days ago, actually), I started a blog to vent some of my frustrations about living in a deeply religious area of North Carolina, among other things.  The following words are taken directly from my blog at sscottshores.wordpress.com (follow me if you want! I'm going to try to update that blog and this one both very frequently).  Anyway, I just wanted to contribute something before I come back to comment on other…

Do people truly believe in satan and hell? Doesn't seem so...

I don't think many people believe in the devil. They'll go on and on and on about how great god is and how awesome heaven is going to be, but do they truly believe in hell? I don't think so.



You hear a story about a son coming out to his parents, either as gay or as an atheist. What's the first conclusion you're going to draw from the story before he gets into it? Probably that the parents cut off ties with them/want nothing to do with their son anymore.



Think about it.…

On Religious Faith

Of course, science is not the enemy of religious faith. Sanity is. (ichbindaswortistich)

Over the ages, all religious pretensions, regardless of the respective faith of which they may have originated, have been disproved beyond any reasonable doubt. The earth is not flat but a sphere. The earth revolves about the sun, not vice versa. The earth is not the centre of the universe but a tiny planet in only one of myriads…

#NudePhotoRevolutionary Calendar

NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

In a press release today last week, Maryam Namazie formally announced the #nudephotorevolutionary calendar.  As Aliaa Magda Elmahdy chose to stand up against female oppression, we too advocate for free-expression and women’s rights.  This calendar features black and white nude photographs, and I’m Ms.…
