I've always felt nothing but disdain for the argument of "Well, at least religion keeps some people in line. It teaches good morals."
Mostly because that's bullshit. If you actually read and followed the Christian holy book, you'd see that the morality there is dubious at best, and bat-shit crazy at worst.
True, most Americans aren't so big on stoning other people now. They've instead evolved to support the death penalty and console themselves by pipe-bombing abortion clinics.… Continue

John Knudsen, a Danish pastor at the Løkken Free Church in Vendsyssel,
has dealt the first blow against an enemy that he believes to be one of
greatest threat to Christmas. It is, of course, the Elf.
Many people imagine elves as Santa's little helpers making toys for
children or magical folk from Germanic and Norse Folklore, but not John
Knudsen. He believes that they are "poltergeists that come from the devil and make children sick"
and that the decorating… Continue

Christian Voice says mixing religion with the cult vampire series is ‘deeply offensive’ to Christians.
‘It’s sickening to see the message of Jesus Christ being hijacked to peddle a brand like Twilight, which to all intents and purposes proclaims an anti-religious cult,’ said Stephen Green, national
director of the group.

Okay, maybe not a showdown, persay, but still awesome...
I went to Taco Bell today because I was hungry and wanted to try the new XXL Chalupa (for the record, it is fucking awesome).
Anyways, it was pretty busy. The store itself was pretty full (I was getting my food to go, though, so I wasn't looking for a seat). Luckily, there was only one guy in front of me. There was a 6-person family in front of him, but they had already started ordering when I got in line. 4 other people… Continue

Welcome to the third installment in what is sure to be a lengthy response to the claims and arguments made in the popular Christian iPhone app for debaters and apologists, called Fast Facts
In the first two parts, as well as this one, I will be tackling the section of the app under the "Challenges and Tactics" category. There are so many counter-arguments to supposedly popular claims and challenges, and so much to say about most of them, that… Continue

Today, the Texas State Board of Education voted on curriculum standards of social studies for the Texan public school system. As I am sure most of you are aware, these standards will affect many other states as publishers will often tailor textbooks specifically to meet Texan requirements. This vote followed several days of debate as final amendments were proposed.
Cynthia Dunbar, one of the strongest voices for the SBOE's conservative voting block, decided that a nice, long… Continue

My mom works at a nursing home caring for seniors. She works in a diverse environment- ethnically and culturally. Although she is excellent at her job, her English isn't very good and she does not know how to use the computer. So what she does is whenever she is asked for an email address, she provides mine and I'm perfectly fine with it- so long as they don't spam me and especially so if they do not spam with me religious bullshit.
But it finally… Continue

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'm a Christian. Ya'll hate me. I get it. But, while I'm here, I hope to bridge the gap a little between us. I don't plan on converting you or anything ridiculous like that. I don't have the time and let's face it, you don't want to listen anyways. Rather, I prefer to show you that not all of us are lunatics.
So, for starters, here's an example of something "logical" that we can relate on. Not ALL Christians believe in a young earth. In fact, the idea to me is rather silly. I like to… Continue

My entire life I belonged to a church; even as an infant the indoctrination had begun. For the first 22 years of my life, I missed scarcely over 2 dozen church services. I attended youth functions, summer camps, and other various church activities. I grew up in a small town surrounded by family and friends who were all believers to varying degree's. In school I had heard evolution mentioned once, maybe twice and even then it was only a mention without explanation. Through the years I had a few… Continue

Ok, my first blog post. (sorry if I messed up my writing, not to good with english)
To begin, I live in a small town, where most people are catholics, but now days young people barely practice there religion, so they really don't give if I'm an atheist or not, there cool with it, sometimes shocked but not to make a big deal out of it. As some should now, we shouldn't care what others think about us, but what happends when the person that has a wrong idea about you is your… Continue

For the last 15 years, I have classified myself as "Christian". From birth to about ten years old, I was a Catholic, then I converted to being Baptist until I was fifteen. As a Catholic, I felt nothing but shame that I was too poor to go to Catholic school, and I hated being in the heathenish Public School. I read my Bible, praying for a better life.
I met a friend in the fourth grade, and she shared the gospel with me. At age nine. In Public School. I went to her church, read her… Continue

There are a handful of major anchors that establish the TRUTH to a christians faith. In these deconversion routines, we look at many of them. Today, I want to look at a really big one. Heaven.
Before I go into heaven, it is important to understand that heaven is not about what you might think. It is about security. It is about having a safe, secure, comfortable home. Surrounded by people like them, like other people they know and love. It is a place that they can wrap around… Continue

Ready to fry some Christian's brains.
I love de-converting folks. Remember, the most powerful and fastest way to deconvert is not to argue, but to agree, but mess with their minds. Especially, to get them thinking and having to go directly to the bible themselves. Remember, the bible is the biggest ally is getting a deconversion to happen.
Ask 99% of… Continue

This is a fun one. Zombies are a critical part of the christian faith, but something they don't talk about much. I think you should talk with them about it.
This is my fifth article on the fun ways to help Christians deconvert.
I will first restate my basic premises for my deconversion system.
