Regina Spektor "Laughing With" as Lead Single

Ok, I admit it. I have a problem. A problem which makes me completely sucked in by female, piano-brandishing musicians. Tori Amos. Fiona Apple. Regina Spektor. It's kind of my thing.



One thing about the former and later of those three songstresses, though, is that they often (especially Tori) talk about religion in their lyrics. Regina uses it more for story-telling, as that's more her lyrical style in general, while Tori uses her songs as a way to criticize religion (all of you… Continue

Did Original Sin Destroy The Environment?

According to the recent environmentalist book Pollution and the Death of Man, by theologian Francis Schaeffer, Adam's original sin was the first step in destroying the earths environment. An excerpt from a recent book review on an evangelical website says,



"This world is not the same as when God created it and said it was good. The sin of Adam changed the way nature functioned-the curse, the… Continue

No true Scotsman

This was also posted on my skeptical blog, Cubik's Rube.




More colourfully named than most, the "No true Scotsman" logical fallacy is attributed to Anthony Flew, and is named for the example he gave of a potentially offensive racial stereotype named Hamish.



It's a way of sticking to… Continue

Ed Buckner Presents

Yesterday I attended a lecture by Ed Buckner, President of American Atheists. His lecture, titled "This Is a Free Country, Not a Christian Nation: In Freedom We Trust", was informative and provoked a few thoughtful questions from the audience.



Basically, Buckner discussed why the United States is not a Christian nation. He challenged other freethinkers to ask people who make this claim to explain what they mean by it. One could certainly argue that America has a Christian majority,… Continue

The Problem of Evil, Extended

If Evil was made by the Fall, whenceforth was Eve tempted?



That sums it up right there.



Some Christians say that evil did not exist until the Fall - that all suffering and sin came about as a result of Eve's choice to disobey God. That sounds reasonable, right?



Riiiiight.



Imagine a world where there is no sin. Everything is perfect. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the lion is gettin' cuddly with that lamb over there (but not… Continue

Truth: still scarier than fiction

I suppose I've never really written about this before, because it seems like too obvious a point to need addressing. But people do keep making these same tired old arguments, displaying a very tedious lack of imagination or intellectual curiosity.

Read the full article here, on my blog.

'I don't mind you saying you're an atheist'

I was having a conversation with a good friend about how a facebook friend insinuated my current unmoving flu was down to the fact I no longer have god on my side. I had forgotten the friend I was chatting to had himself dabbled in various community churches of the christian variety and he suddenly said,



'I don't mind you saying you’re an 'atheist''



To which I replied,



'I don't mind you saying you’re a 'christian''



Why to people think that we should… Continue

Deborah 13

I must be on some kind of S&M binge because I've been very into disturbingly religious documentaries lately. Deborah 13 is about a 13-year-old girl from a small town in England who is being raised in a very Christian household. Actually, it's dangerously Christian. Her parents decided to only have a couple of children, but then "left it up to god" to determine how many they had. They have 10 total! None of the children are able to watch television or read a newspaper unless previously… Continue

The Truth About St. Patrick

St. Patrick is considered as the Patron Saint of Ireland. There are many, though, in Ireland that hold him in disdain. These people will never celebrate his legacy or life. It has been stated that St. Patrick rid Ireland of all of its snakes. Scientists have found that Ireland had not had snakes since icebergs surrounded the island. What could then be meant by the old legend?

Before Christianity began to spread into Ireland, the Druids were the leading…

Christians Don't Even Recognize Their Own Kind

Religious Extremist So Crazy He Doesn't Even Know His Own Kind

Not breaking news, I know; but since I can't find any other posts about Bonestroo, thought I'd share.



Derik Bonestroo was the ski lift operator who fatally shot the general manager of the Eldora ski area in Colorado on December 30th. He entered one of the ski area buildings, fired his gun, and said "If you're not Christian, you're going to… Continue

Christians Plan Their Counter for the Bus Ads

The bus ads in the UK were spawned as a response to christian ads that said non-believers would suffer eternal damnation. Three religious groups want to have the last word, so they are starting their response-to-the-response.



How hypocritical! A few weeks ago those same religious groups were clamoring that the ‘There’s probably no God’ message was offensive, and they appealed to the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) that the ad violated truth in advertizing codes,… Continue

False Choices, or, How to Win Lawsuits and Marginalize People

[From Bloc Raisonneur]



I am interested in the Christian Broadcasting Network's take on the Newdow Pledge suit, because even though they will have a naturally built-in bias, they are a significant player in terms of niche media, and their political reporting… Continue

A Drank Conversation with my Best Friend

I'm new to the community. Running on little sleep, lots of post-holiday annoyances, and a handful of sodas that should have been diet and caffeine free. Regardless, I stumbled here... took in some great reads and made a handful of replies. I've got a bit of a formal dash to my writing as I'm polishing off the last year of a liberal arts degree. <-- I'm boring, but my story is interesting.



Having come back to my hometown from about 90 miles away, I was glad to see my friends. Of… Continue
