Building a Community of Reason

Yesterday I attended the 2nd annual Philadelphia Coalition of Reason (PhillyCoR) Picnic. PhillyCoR is an umbrella organization which unites several freethought, Humanist, atheist, and secular organizations together. The picnic was a great way to mix all of our respective groups together and to engage in intellectual dialog, brainstorming, and just some pleasant conversation.

MeetUp.com

I went to my second atheist get-together this weekend. Found via MeetUp.com!



Had a great time hanging out with some like-minded people, and lots of interesting discussions.



I don't want to sound like an advertisement, but I'm just really excited about finding a group in my area. So felt the need to share; and to recommend MeetUp since it provided me that opportunity. If you're looking for a group in your area and haven't found one yet, you should check it… Continue

2nd Annual Texas Freethought Convention

If you wanted to go to TAM but couldn't make it (or would like to go to more free-thought conventions), there is also a convention held in Texas. This year it will be in San Antonio (it was in Austin last year...might be in Dallas next year).



I gave my flier away, but I think the cost was $25 for adults and children under 13 yrs are free. You don't have to be a Texan to come. They are also going to be trying to block off some hotels room to help on that cost. (Free drinks were also… Continue

Thanks,
Rhiannon Lee

Carnival of the Godless

I don't know how many people here follow a lot of blogs (I know Nelson does, and Syn, and some others), but for those who may not, I thought I'd point out a blogging event known as the Carnival of the Godless.



The Carnival moves from blog to blog, being hosted at a different one each time. It consists of a collection of links to various blog posts, submitted by bloggers to the host. It servers a couple worthwhile… Continue

Why believe in a book with no proven fact?

I have to say i have asked christians on what evidence they have that god exists and none of them can give me any factual avidence on the existence of their own beliefs, so why believe in them in the first place?

To be or not to be.... a militant atheist

I don't like the term "militant atheist". To me it's equivalent to "fanatical christians".

Now I don't like a lot of christians, but of course there are some that are nice and live a quiet and decent life, they believe in nonsense, but that just makes them nice plus ignorant.



A militant atheist to me conjures images of some person going around burning churches.

I don't think that is an image I want to portray as an atheist.



I think most atheists are peaceful and… Continue

Oath of Enlistment

I re-enlisted this past Thursday (14May2009). I have been in the military for over 6 yrs now, so I know I had to have said the words before....I guess I didn't pay that much attention to the entire oath previously. Now it has just been eating away at me!! Everything was fine until the very last sentence "So help me God". I cringed at the thought of saying this, however, I was on a stage in front of my entire battery and chain-of-command. I paused briefly, glanced at my husband, and uttered the… Continue

Fraternity Alpha Delta Phi Comes Out To Westboro Baptist Church



On March 9, 2009 the crazed Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) set their sights on the University of Chicago. In customary WBC fashion, the members displayed god related hate speech with unabashed delight. The event took on almost a festive atmosphere as counter protesters refused to take the fundamentalist wack-jobs seriously. Unwilling to go unnoticed amongst the roasting marshmallows and clever signs, the Chicago Chapter of Alpha Delta Phi launched… Continue

British Man Officially Unbaptized

At eleven years old, John Hunt refused to attend church because he no longer believed in god. Forty-five years later now Doctor John Hunt told the church he wanted his baptism record removed because as a baby, he could not consent. After a bit of a struggle, Dr. Hunt became the first person in England to have his baptism cancelled.



“It struck me there was a lot of hypocrisy around. One Sunday I came back home and said, "Mum, I'm not going to the class anymore,” said… Continue

Child Advocate Wastes Precious CPS Resources in the Name of God

In my work as an advocate for foster children in America, I’ve seen personally a level of abuse that might damage the psyche of an average person. I once saw a two year old child, with a face still so swollen he couldn’t open his eyes, returned to abusive home after two weeks in the hospital because “it was just the first time it happened.” So when I hear the abuse word thrown out willy-nilly, devaluing the plight of children who are actually abused, it makes me want to start a crusade.… Continue

Why the Will is Not Free



Human beings have a powerful sense of free will, and in at least one important sense, they are responsible for their actions. Despite this, however, the concept of free will as it is commonly understood is baseless and incoherent. It is certainly true, of course, that when beings make choices, it feels to them as though a variety of outcomes are possible. In fact, however, only the actual outcome was ever really a possibility. For a different choice to have been… Continue

Beingist Philosophy

These are the basic premises intended to define Beingism. Beyond the content of the text here, Beingists may come to a variety of different conclusions. Other texts on this site, such as the essays, blog posts, and message board postings, may contain ideas widely shared among Beingists, though this cannot necessarily be… Continue

Pat Condell - YouTube-based sanity

I was recently introduced to Pat Condell's YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/patcondell), and have spent the last day or so nodding, laughing, and getting angry about religion. He is (as I understand it), a stage comedian who has gone to YouTube to rant about religion and why we're better off without it. I can't recommend any one video above all other because, honestly, I think they're all fantastic.



Anyway, take a look and enjoy :) I'm going to watch more videos there… Continue

The Atheist Prayer

The Atheist's Prayer



Our brains, which art in our heads,

treasured be thy name. Thy reasoning

come. Thy best you can do be done

on earth as it is. Give us this day new

insight to help us resolve conflicts and

ease pain. And lead us not

into supernatural explanations;

deliver us from denial of logic.

For thine is the kingdom of reason,

and even though thy powers are limited,

and you're not always…

Atheist Blogs Ranking List [UPDATED]

the Atheist A Before I post this link, I just want to reiterate that Think Atheist is the site I hit first every morning, camp way too much throughout the day, and typically check last before going to bed. Morgan has created something truly unique here, and it cannot be matched. (Ok, done kissing ass now) I'm sure most of you, like me, have a few other atheist bookmarks you like to check though (or a list of RSS feeds).



I just stumbled upon this… Continue
