With the rise of Evangelical Christianity in the United States a corresponding increase in finger pointing and blame claiming that the country is in moral decline accompanied it. The usual culprits for the fingered for the alleged deterioration are liberals, non-Christians and unbelievers, but a look at the numbers show the source may be a closer to…Continue

Liberal Christians, in my honest opinion, are just goosestepping agnosticism and ultimately, their true atheistic feelings and skepticism. A liberal Christian is like an atheist apologist. Too afraid to have unpopular opinions and too weak to stand up for them.
Recently a friend and I were discussing an episode of "The Cleveland Show", where a character is asked whether or not he is an atheist. The animated thirteen year old character said that he prefers not to use the…
Good afternoon everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day. Despite a rather shaky start to the day, everything is now going well and I just read a great article inThe Vancouver Sun, titled …Continue
I was wondering if anyone else thought this was a good idea.
So I was chatting online (Omegle) and I came across this bible beater (looking for cybersex... hmm...) and he said that atheists were satan worshippers and we never did anything as a community. Firstly, I reminded him that we have no churches in which to congregate and plan. Then I remembered. We have Think Atheist. This entire site is like our "church". Just because we don't see each other every week, doesn't mean we can't…Continue

I'm an atheist and have been out spoken about it and heard all the nonsense regarding that fact by the religious, such as, I'm a fundie atheist or atheism is my religion, etc... but lately I've questioned my own tactics. What i mean by that is this, as an atheist, I'm also fairly scientific minded, for an uneducated layman that is.
I've come to the rational belief, in the philosophy of…
Couldn't make this stuff up folks. It reads like a trashy romance novel. This is the guy that started the "National Prayer Breakfast" and "National Day of Prayer". C Street in Washington. I love it when…Continue

Wow, I guess I haven't made it as "known" as I thought. I need to redo my whole profile on FB to exclaim my atheism. I'm getting really tired of having to deal with this constantly.
My aunt and her son (my cousin) are going through an extremely rough time in their lives. My cousin has been wrongly accused of child molestation. I've reviewed all the information I have been given and I have came to the conclusion that he really is being wrongly accused. (The…Continue
Recent discussions have been had on how conservatives are a minority when it comes to "freethinking" sites. You think so?
I wonder why thinking people reject conservative propaganda. I mean, if it's a rational position wouldn't we all climb on board? We have a christian political movement waging war on the middle class, on the poor, on science, on the educated, on education, on worker's rights, on women's rights; does anyone really think this resonates with the freethinking…
These are some really sweet people and some of them, I have known for a long time. It just makes me want to shake them and scream, "WAKE UP! It's has all been a lie!" I'm hesitant though because these are the type of people that their faith runs so deep, any deviance will send them crying and praying. I really wish that they would put this passion toward something productive for our society, instead of just wishful thinking.. which is what I'm doing too, when I say…Continue

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS!! I NEED FEEDBACK ON MY ATHEIST MEMOIRE IN PROGRESS!!
From time to time memories of my former life as a Protestant Christian come back. Some of them are pleasant, some unpleasant, others simply perplexing.
There is one that came to mind today that is still perplexing to this day.
Years ago, I had decided to confirm myself into the church, ironically, this was only a year before my dramatic…Continue
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
