Living in the Closet: It's Dark, Yes, But It's Also Warm and Cozy!

For anyone who hasn't read my blog posts, I am still a "closet atheist": I don't publicly identify as an atheist, and in fact, part of my income comes from church music.  I am Director of Music at a small Methodist church in Nashville, TN.  That's right...the buckle of the Bible belt!  I honestly can't see myself admitting my atheism to anyone in the near future, as my family's harmony and financial security rely partly on my keeping my church job.

Being honest with myself, however, I…

How To Come Out As An Atheist

Is government a more powerful force than love?

I didn't join this site to take other people's words out of my mouth.

I attempted to emphasize the importance of love amid the current trend of legalized gay marriage. I'm not anonymous, so anyone can go to Facebook to verify my support of my gay friends' new marriage intentions.

Marriage is a much older religious institution than a governmental one, and marriage is younger than love. Tell me ThinkAtheist, does law matter more than love?

 http://www.religionnews.com/2014/05/07/atheist-tv-coming-soon-television-near/

This is a long overdue event that hopefully will help further the exposure to the atheist cause in America. It is my sincerest hope that they do well.

Discovering Us

It's at the very reach of our fingers. 

 

Do you hear it? The sound of silence. Not a child is worried about the ideas of the adult mind. In fact, even the adult's minds are unusually silent, and untouched by fears. The fear of hell and death is finally seen as illogical. Ajahn Chah once said, "When one does not understand death, life can be very…

Facts Before Faith podcast/ I get to perform communion Xmas eve

So I have not been back in 2 years or so. So life has a drastic positive change for me. I have settled in as a software engineer, and I love bragging and being self absorbed- what are blogs for anyway?- and now have a job doing software testing avionics software (aerospace) and I FINALLY have a 401k and health benefits and employer matching on both, though they are a Christian based company, but not enforced. And I am getting married in June of 2014, so life went from bleak to grand! Now on to… Continue

The show started out a in 2011 as a way for me to document my departure from religion. It was rather cathartic. Now I have co-hosts and…

The Celestial Teapot's Issue #4 is out!

If you’re anything like me you get excited about new possibilities and technologies, and your imagination gets very stimulated by thinking of future advances. This issue does just that for your braindbuds: we’ve created an homage to Brave New World with articles on operant conditioning, sleep-learning, reproductive technology and psychological manipulation. We’ve also got some great new scientific developments that are coming to fruition now or in the near future of 2014: Memristor…

My "secret" atheist blog

Let me explain a few things, right off the bat:

  • I recently became convinced (again) that my so-called Christian faith was a crumbling edifice just last week at a Bible study, of all things.
  • Even though I've always been too weak to stick with atheism as a worldview in the past, I think, in my own mind, it's the only thing that really makes sense.
  • Because I have a church job, and it's a pretty significant portion of my income, I am unable at this time to "come…

Atheist Admires Pope Francis. So what?

I ran across this piece by a on a blog maintained by the order.  I thought the piece was quite good, actually, and reflects my own views in many ways, and the comments the author makes both to Catholics and indirectly about atheists might be of interest to those here. 

*****

It’s not uncommon for my various social newsfeeds to look like an avalanche of news about Pope Francis; it’s an occupational hazard of (i) being a Jesuit and (ii) knowing a lot of Catholics.…

Keep @Hypochristi in College!

Contributor to Emilyhasbooks & North Carolinian Christi Sevits, needs your support today. She's fallen short in the finances needed to continue her college education, and our help can keep her enrolled.



When Christi created this indigogo fundraiser with her father, she needed $3500, but only needs $650 after further paperwork was done at the school. So, I'm writing this, asking for a cause that I believe in.



Christi is a double major in English and Russian, and is…

So a Christian doesn't tolerate my views - why be so annoyed?

Just why can’t we let some things go? Why do some things bother us more than others? Why do some things bother some people more than other people? These are things about which I deem myself to have some insight; hopefully more than some, since I’m a therapist working somewhere within the psychotherapy field.

Let’s break it down: put very simply, there are three types of recognised personalities within psychology. One is a very sensitive type, prone to traits of emotional delicateness,…

Why you so angry, atheists? Whyyyyyy?

Let's get something straight.

Not everyone that's perceived as a bitch is actually unhappy. 

Let's get another thing straight. 

I'm a bitch. 

Knowing just what to say and when to say it is a talent of mine.

If the words I type piss you off, usually that was my exact intention. Thanks for playing.

Please don't mistake my mockery for misery. I'm not unhappy, in fact, I'm  laughing at you right…

Just Some News :)

In Oklahoma, an atheist high school student and his family face threats and intimidation from angry Christians after the young atheist had the courage to report the unconstitutional display of the Ten Commandments in his public school classrooms.

On Saturday, May 11, atheist Gage Pulliam, a Junior at Muldrow High School, explained to the Friendly Atheist why he was motivated to blow the whistle on the unconstitutional…

who does the responsibility of proof fall to?

one big topic that comes up in theist vs atheist debates is who does the responsibility of proof fall to?

does it fall to the creationists to prove that god DOES exist?

Or

does it fall upon those who do believe that god does NOT exist?

AND, can you give your reason(s) why?

I personally think that it is the creationists responsibility to prove god's existance BECAUSE: throughout the entire history of science, science has only ever proven the existance of…

"An Atheist Heaven"

I'm not sure how many of you have seen this before but I loved it. It gives a really compelling argument that I plan on using in my religion debates with my friends as soon as possible.
