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… Continue

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

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

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

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

Christopher Hitchens described in a debate what "Scapegoating" is. Starting about 10:00-11:38
And I pose the question that Christopher says in the affirmative, why do religions really allow you to not take personal responsibility for your actions? IE, The devil made me do it or other such nonsense because of the notion that you get another life after death in heaven?

11 Things The Bible Bans, But You Do Anyway
1. Round haircuts. See you in Hell, Beatles. and/or kids with bowl cuts,
surfer cuts or (my favorite) butt cuts. Leviticus 19:27 reads "You shall not
round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard."
2. Football. At… Continue

So after my very interesting Debate with a friend of mines relative i somewhat analyzed the situation i was in and figured out a decent way to debate without actually discouraging them to open their minds a bit.
Typical Theists are thought to keep a straight mind towards their beliefs and in most cases ignore or falsely debunk outside information. This is their defense. When they start throwing pascal's wager or the challenge of, or anything similar to, "You haven't read the bible so… Continue

I found an amazing video of a tv show I have never heard of.
It talks about the contradictions in the bible, most of which I already knew, but it is funny.
It's ~30 mins, I watched the whole thing. It's pretty neat.
Never go near a woman on her period, or you will be stoned to… Continue

The following conversation is real. It was held with an acquaintance of mine via Facebook. I'm Jared. I decided to leave her spelling errors for effect. Also, I now realize that it's 42 virgins, not 7, but the point was made.
are you religous?
have you always been?
have you always been christian?
i was a baptist

I know this is from a while ago, but I just stumbled across it -
It's basically saying why exactly a woman doesn't have the right to say or do anything (because of the bible - shocking!)... except for making sure she marries a manly man that makes sure she continues to not have any say in anything! (emphasis… Continue

According to a story from WPTV.com
(a Florida TV station's web site), an employee of Home Depot was let go after repeatedly trying to wear a button that said "One nation under God, indivisible."
The story points out that the employee, Trevor Keezer, had worn the button for over a year with no issues, but only was asked to take… Continue

According to Amnesty International USA
, the state of Texas is set to execute someone after the jury consulted the bible during deliberations in deciding in favor of execution.
From the story:
One juror had read aloud from the Bible to a group of fellow jurors, including the passage, "And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he die, he is a murderer: the murderer… Continue

Yeah, that's right! I'm one of those godless heathen non-believers, and I say that your holy book is full of inaccuracies! It's not historically reliable at all, let alone divine and inerrant! Contrary to what all those hard-line conservative fundamentalist wackaloons think, it actually contains numerous-

When I first heard about the idea of the "fertile crescent" some years ago, I immediately thought the area could be the basis of the myth of The Garden of Eden. It turns out that I am not alone. There are plenty of articles and books that mention the connection.
(For those who don't know, the fertile crescent is a crescent-shaped area that straddles the Arabian peninsula and is considered the place where human agriculture was first developed.)
However, some on the… Continue

Aye gevalt-- Is it September already?
Thank Darwin for Facebook. It is proving invaluable in my meeting and schmoozing with other atheists/skeptics. Plus it's great for meeting cool people everywhere. To any young 'uns reading this, you have no idea how much the internet has changed things.
One thing I see a lot of in this project is atheists who have double, and sometimes even… Continue

Today, we're going to talk about faith.
You can't say I don't tackle the Big Important Topics here. In this one post, I'm going to cover the entire foundation of almost every religion in the history of ever, the pillar on which all theology is founded, and the subject over which perhaps more hours of scholarly work and profound philosophising has taken place over the centuries than any other. The one elusive, ethereal concept whose significance has plagued the most enlightened and… Continue

Here’s a thought.
Maybe it’s due to my lack of knowledge in Christianity so help me out
There are 613 commandments in the bible
- not just the ten central ones.
However, Christians believe that 603 of the commandments (minus the ten) are irrelevant since “Jesus died to save us from our sins.”
So Christians don’t keep kosher for example- a clear commandment in the bible
They don’t… Continue
