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 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…

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 (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…

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…

Poll for atheists

I was reading this article, and became curious about this statement:

'"To say something along the lines of 'I'm an atheist; I think religions are not all bad' has become a dramatically peculiar thing to say and if you do say it on the internet you will get savage messages calling you a fascist, an idiot or a fool. This is a very odd moment in our culture. Why has this happened?"'…

Losing God and my family

I am 21 years old, and I was not raised in a church, or told to say my prayers before I wen to bed at night. To be honest, you wouldn't have known god had a presence in my childhood home at all except for a small wooden cross on the wall. My father and step mother are by self declaration Catholic, though they have never attended Mass once in my life that I know on the other side of the family my mother and step father are very religious; church every sunday, prayer, etc.

Being snotty and being right, are two different things.

Somehow I feel priviliged when I read the stories here. I was brought up in a non religious household, I have never been inside a church unless it was a funeral or baptism. I didn't think it was odd as a child. My dad was a flaming communist, which also colored my oppinion on religion and politics. But that was really not the point of this blog entry, and yet it is.

I like any other parent, teaches my children what I believe to be the "truth", and my honest oppinion on Religion is,…

Reason Rally Road Trip!

I will be attending the Reason Rally with a group of fellow atheists and free thinkers from Mississippi State University.  If there is anyone in the north Mississippi/Alabama area that would like to travel with us let me know ASAP.  We are considering renting a van and/or carpooling to Tuscaloosa to "get on the bus" with the group there.  The more the merrier, especially when it comes to logic and reason!

It makes me feel a little uncomfortable

I see it often enough. At school an atheist and a theist are once again having a go at eachother for no reason other then one thinks differently. Atheist stereotypes generally consist of us having no morals and thinking we are better and higher then everybody else. I like to disagree with these stereotypes as many of us would but it bothers me sometimes the arrogance that we can show to theist.

I disagree with religion and I admit I have said things that I probably shouldn't of to… Continue
