I came across a comment by Eoganachta Mor on my last blog post that brought up some similar thoughts of my own. The original comment was as follows:
The irony is that people talk about 'coming out as an atheist' like they do with homosexuals admitting their nature to their parents and friends. It's like there is some great problem with these things. I cannot understand why people… Continue

FIRST SHE SAID THIS:
i have taken note that all of your quotes are from the old testament. As stated earlier, you are not taking these quotes in context and balance. I can make the bible say that "there is no God" But, taken in context it states that "The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God". The one thing you didn't answer was what is love, truth, etc.…

Perhaps you have had the experience of discussing with a Christian how you became an atheist and were told that you weren't a true believer in the first place. If you are like me, you had a period in your life when your faith was very genuine. You share this with the Christian. But, most Christians cannot comprehend a person making a rational determination that god does not exist. In their mind, a true believer cannot know a better way because they have been raised to believe that their's is… Continue

I always stumble when I attempt to talk about things of a political nature. Politics are very complicated, and I think it's difficult to see all sides of a situation, even for those who are experts in political issues. Because of this I try not to touch on real-world politics too much, as I fear being proven wrong, and I sometimes worry I'm misunderstanding situations because I've not seen the whole picture. Even when I do understand the whole story, I can feel that I have nothing new to offer… Continue

(Rewritten from a promise to cure homosexuality:)
Although it is difficult, one can overcome Christianity.
There seems to be a great controversy in the psychological and theological arenas whether a person is born a Christian or not. One of the latest findings, according to a 1993 study at the University of Colorado and the Whitehead Institute of Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, suggests that there might a Christian gene that predisposes a person toward… Continue

Dear Anyone and Everyone,
I cannot stand this any longer. For many years now I have lied to myself, as well as to all of you. (Well....most of you...) I've been lying to myself about how I feel, even going so far to take an acting class not for enjoyment, but to better hide my true thoughts and feelings. No, I'm not gay, keep your pants on. But ever since I first met many of my friends, I have held my hands clasped and my lips shut.
I am an atheist.

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

The path of "Accepting Jesus Christ as your savior" has to be one of the biggest mind games in the history of the Christian religion. I used to be a Southern Baptist once, and they often used that technique after they've convinced you that you're a piece of shit and the only way to "unshit" yourself is to accept Jesus as your savior, and once you've supposedly done that, they constantly told me that I was "backsliding" and I ended up getting stuck in a vicious cycle of mentally flogging myself… Continue

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

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-

If you want to know what I think of the Atheist's Guide to Christmas, a book that's just been released, which was put together by the lovely Ariane Sherine

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

Anyone who has spent more than a few seconds on my site
knows where I stand on religion. My anti-theist stance is quite clearly proclaimed everywhere here, from the scarlet A
and Random Evil Scripture block to the various books I've read, even those of faith have no trouble figuring out my views.
I have my email address easily accessible in the footer, available for anyone to contact me if desired, and I do… Continue

I hear it all the time, “it takes more faith to be an atheist than it does to believe in God.” This popular Christian argument claims that in order for atheists to reject the claim that god exists, we must first know everything that there is to know.

My pun muscles are letting me down if that's the best I can come up with. The New Humanist's "Zeal or no Zeal?"
is perfect, and there must be other religion/game-show wordplay possibilities out there. I'll keep trying.
The point is, people in Turkey are going to be trying to convert some atheists on a TV panel show, by the clever application of flawless logic and the careful presentation of substantial evidence… Continue

I was looking around the great big Internet and was refreshed and pleased when I found Think Atheist. You guys really seem to be making a statement, and it's well appreciated, I'm sure.
I plan to update this blog weekly, if possible, and I hope everyone will visit and comment.

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?
