Is religion the Cause why we are good?

I have few other articles that I need to complete and publish, but I want to skip them over for a while to answer an important point that a pious christian is trying to ask me via the Amazon Book review I made for, "The god Delusion", a book by R. Dawkins.

Prelude

Are people good only because they strictly follow a Religion? This was the topic of chapter Six of Dawkins', “The god Delusion”, which he titled exactly, “The Roots of…

"God Evolved from Humans" - from Atheist Climber Blog

“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck…

Religious Responsibility

This is an Op-Ed that I wrote for OpEdnews.com. Monicks has been asking me to post it here, so I hope you all enjoy it...



Have you ever read your terms of use for Facebook? How about Google? If you did, there would be some phrases, if you can decipher them in the jargon, which you may find objectionable. However, they are tools for the modern world, and you would probably continue to utilize them anyway, knowing full well that they are, using… Continue

"The Atheist Re-Enlightenment" from Atheist Climber blog

From Atheist Climber Blog



I have often wondered why it is that we are seeing an uprising of voices in the world of skeptical inquiry and atheism in the mainstreams of the world. And I wonder why it is that I am so heavily entrenched in this to feel it is important in my life to put so much effort into this blog at this point in time. Maybe I'm a little slow on the uptake, but it seems to me… Continue

Finally reading & understanding the bible

I'd tried many years ago to read the bible on my own on 2 separate occasions. If I remember right I think I only got as far as Noah's Ark, got frustrated with the language and stopped. Today I was graced with 2 links: one to a modernize version and another to a seemingly easier to understand online NIV bible. I've been reading the former, The Living Bible, for 6 hours now. I've never been so interested in reading the bible until now. Boy, am I sure glad… Continue

"The Bible Is Not A Historical Textbook" from Atheist Climber blog



I'm scared for the future of Australia, and I'll tell you why.



Recently I have been reading reports of education in Queensland that sugest that people who believe the logical fallacies of the Bible have been teaching biblical writings as historical fact. I don't need to break the bible down piece by piece to show you why it is… Continue

'"Dont just vote for them... Pray for them" - Politics and Religion' from Atheist Climber blog



Outreach Media have done it again. They have chosen a current topic (for which I applaud them) and then used it for their own message (for which I don't applaud them). As you may know, I have written on the Outreach Media billboards… Continue

Atheists' lives too easy

I'm a bit bored after finishing school (weird) and wanted to talk about something.

I am not sure how Gary Wells can state something so obvious ("It's up to you," Letters/Jan. 22) and receive so much flak. He is, if anything, too lenient on the Bible bashers, seeing them as only being too into themselves and being lax in seeing the harm they do. Dino Wenino's Jan. 27 letter nit picks Gary's "Lord" to pretty well say the same thing as Gary.

Being more interested in how…

Hell: A burning contradiction

Hi! I'm Raithie; an Irish teenage atheist. Since this is my introductory post to the Think Atheist community - I suppose I'll give a brief outline of myself and why I'm here in the first place.



I love to surf, read, play guitar and debate. However, you'll catch me doing anything - I love life and all that comes with it. That sums me up!



I recently decided to bring my atheism online and started to join atheist and theist discussion forums…

"On the fifth day" from Atheist Climber blog



Humour me while I quote from the Bible:

And God said, "Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the firmament of the heavens." So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their…

Face(book) to Face(book) Conversation - Pt. 2

[THIS IS THE CONTINUATION OF THE PREVIOUS ARTICLE. THIS ONE IS MORE INTERESTING TO ME PERSONALLY BECAUSE IT'S MORE OF A ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE PAGE OWNER TOM]



Tom: Um no [ME], other way around. If either A or B, if not A, then B. That is sound tested philosophy. Thus, argumentally speaking, either side could prove one side right by proving the other side wrong. Besides, what person in the world would ever believe anything that they cannot see the evidence of? Totally ignorant from a… Continue

underline the bible

When someone writes about the bible, isn't it suppose to be either underlined or in italic since it is a book, going by grammer rules?

Battle of the Babies - An examination of a Genesis Story that should go on the Jerry Springer Show. O.o

Okay. While on my quest to read the whole bible, I was struck by a story in genesis that had an element I had missed as a theist. In specific, the breeding war and rivalry between sisters Rachel and Leah. O.o I thought it would make good material for the Jerry Springer Show... so I wrote a made up script of putting the characters, and all 11 of their children, on the show. lol

Enjoy! ^_^

Free Will and the Bible

Free Will and the Bible



Some assert that man has free will. Some assert that all is determined. Some say (as I do) that free will is compatible with determinism. The debate has raged, unabated, for millennia.



Clearly, an interceding God presents problems for free will. However, a cosmic God - a Creator who does not intervene in human affairs - might be compatible with free will if he keeps his omniscience and omnipotence to himself. I,…

The Woman's Role in the Home

I've been writing this series over on my blog http://AngietheAntiTheist.blogspot.com I've put this passage in it's entirety here, and the links for comments on this post, and follow-up posts in the series, are provided at the end.



Looking at "The Woman's Role in the Home" by Christian homeschooling mother Rachel Harkins makes me want to wash out my eyes with bleach. Or acid.

I enjoy coming up with acrostics…

Contradictory History Of The Bible.

The bible is full of contradictions on matters of history. A person who reads and compares the contents of the Bible will be confused about exactly who Esau's wives were, whether Timnah was a concubine or a son, and whether Jesus' earthly lineage is through Solomon or his brother Nathan. The bible also contradicts itself hundreds of times in many passages of the bible such as genesis: Man was created after the other animals Gen 1:25,26,27 Man was created before the other animals Gen 2:18,19.… Continue

Scary YouTube Messages

So first off, apparently a group of Internet Christians have been trying to get people on YouTube to... well what they're trying to do is actually my first question. I don't know what their intent is. Some of my vidder friends (we all are the vidding community because we all make fanvideos - music videos using clips from our favorite movies and TV shows) said they had received similar messages in the past. I talk to many of these vidder friends of mine on twitter, so to share my extreme… Continue

Over-reaction?

This is something that happened to me about a month ago that really angered me at the time, but that I have since wondered if I over reacted to:



I attend a small liberal arts college in Wisconsin, and I live in the on campus dormitories. It is not uncommon for student groups to go around to the dorms and post things in community space and slip invitations and such under doors. I have no problem with this. However, a few weeks back the on campus Christian group came by and taped to my… Continue

The Improbabilities and Contradictions of the Exodus

Monicks tweeted that one reason we know the bible isn't true is the lack of ancient Egyptian historical evidence for the Exodus. I didn't see the full exchange of tweets, but saw enough to know she was discussing/arguing with a few who disagreed. Some other things were tossed into the mix by skeptics, like the lack of archeological evidence they left on the desert, the improbabilities, and the logistical impossibilities of the whole… Continue
