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 of..now on the other side of the family my mother and step father are very religious; church every sunday, prayer, etc.

  I…

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,…

My name is Jack Lawrence. And I am an atheist.

Speaking for myself, I'm not sure I really know what it's like to believe in god.

Science, the little brother.

People laugh at science and some of the theories that come out of it. They think they know all the answers because their holy books tell them what they want to know. The truth is modern science hasn't been around nearly long enough for this to be fair.

Religion is like the annoying big brother who has been playing a video game for the past three months without getting through level 3. Science would be the little brother who comes along and beats level 7 after a week of playing.…

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

Perspectives from a science teacher,

Ignorance is bliss ... Although it shouldn't be in teaching!

A very short introduction to this blog, quite mixed together but it gives an idea of what it's about. 
Atheism and Anti-Theism. Two words that 20 years ago were restricted to small meeting rooms and shabby websites. In 2011 however, things have…

An introduction?

'What made you turn your back to God?'

'When did you decide to become an atheist?'



If you are an atheist, I bet you've heard questions like this on numerous occasions. As a young, just-recently-out-of-the-closet-atheist, I sure have. This post is dedicated to those who ask questions like these.



Let me start by saying…

FB Atheism

It's a common theme among those with faith. They say something that just makes you go 'Wait...what?'. I'm sure most of you have seen the video in these pictures. (if not, look it up, it's fantastic). My friend posted it on FB and I watched it and I noticed that a friend of hers had commented below. I responded in kind. It's a bit to read, but it was a civil conversation, if not a bit strained on my end.

Atheism Vs Anti-Theism

 

Public discussion regarding Atheism, from a right of center perspective, usually involves the attack that Atheists are militant in their pursuit of changing public opinion and deeply held moral beliefs. While this may be true, I think Militant Atheism is not a very good term for the phenomenon.

I believe that Anti-Theism would be more suited to describing the feelings and actions held by our most outspoken activists. It is an understandable position; many of us do have some…

Moving to God's Country

     Just moved to West Virginia. Among the standard frustrations of moving, I chose the occasion to read the local paper (thankfully online), and ran across this gem in the Letters to the Editor section: Jesus is the reason for a Christmas celebration.

Gallop's attempt to prove that only 7% Muslims are extremists. Rest saints!!

I came across this year old video shared by a fellow member where few Muslim liberals used a Gallop poll to prove that most Muslims are not radical. They used this single poll to try to prove that Islam is totally a religion of peace. 

Taking a skeptical approach to every thing that we hear or see, lets try to investigate what evidence Gallop has for its shocking poll result.

First the video. Many people would want to avoid the 107 minute debate, but I would like to suggest it…
