Hi Think Atheist community it has been recently reported in a few news articles across the web that the Shroud of Turin (otherwise known as the Shroud of Jesus) is the real deal due to an alleged new found evidence. This comes as quite a surprise to me as it was sometime ago originally claimed to have been proven as a fake.
The original findings concluded and I quote:
" the Shroud was made in the 13th century, then it isn't a relic of…

Why would an almighty god as Abrahamic religions picture it to be, couldn't be clear enough when it was giving it's words?
Assuming they aren't errors, as apologists make it sound like with their famous Saying "Allah and his messenger knows best" or "You have to dig deep in the quran to understand". I think I did. Moreover, the deeper you go in the quran, the more you will realize that there is nothing holy about it. You will realize that it is just the ideas, fiction and a collection of… Continue

Emperor Constantine was undoubtedly one of the major sparks that helped explode the Gnostic cult of Christianity into a full blown mega-religion. That's just one of many things covered in this informative book:…

I'm getting ready to "come out" to my family and church. I've written a letter to send to the church or any family member in the event that I cannot personally talk with them for fear of my own safety. I intend to go about this in the least dramatic way possible, and only use this letter if I have to. If there is any drama, it will be caused by the church or by my family- not by me. I played a very active role in the church (I'm their best worship leader, they keep saying), so I expect some… Continue

I’ve always been one to let curiosity get the best of me. On the playground as a child, I refused to use the space as it was intended the way other children did. I played on the roof, I played on the outside of the walls, I climbed up the support beams. I wasn’t inclined to be restricted by the ‘right’ way to interact with the space set out for me. This trend of individualism marked many important decisions in my life, from being an exchange student… 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-
Some of the conservative nut-jobs are with me on this? Those same freakazoids who believe the universe was created 6,000 years ago based on a… Continue

Okay... I think
we can all relax.
I didn't watch it the first few times I saw it linked, because I read the summary and it just sounded depressing. Eventually I caved in and witnessed the nightmare for myself.
It really was hideous
Yes, it's that video of the American… Continue

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
