Since man as discovered his consciousness and began to live in groups, he has thought and wondered about the beauty of nature, the vastness of space and immensity of time. Since then he has searched for a creator of this universe and all its constituents. This was mans first perception about God, ‘the creator’. As time passed by man discovered his ignorance about certain things that surrounded him thus he attributed most things beyond his comprehension or understanding to… Continue

What keeps me away from theism is really simple, I'm not nine anymore.
Also, I have more important things to worry about than eternal damnation and sucking up to a big hairy white guy in the sky. That being said, I'm currently studying Graphic Design and would love any tips on the industry if you've got them!

I've begun a series of video-essays on YouTube titled "Welcome to our Semi-Dark Age". The first episode is now up (in three parts, due to time-length restrictions by YouTube) - hopefully, my skills at video recording/editing will improve as I make more videos. Similarly, my pronunciation of English words remains a work in progress ... In any case, I've embedded herein the three videos of this first episode of the series, titled… Continue

To sign the petition you have to be a UK citizen or resident, so if you are or know of any, please sign it or make them aware of it, respectively.…

Texas leaders debate teaching creationism in schools.
Debate? The debate is over. creationism and 'intelligent design' are anti-science coupled with irresponsible dogmatic religion. The only teaching of the pseudoscience of creationism and 'intelligent design' is best done as a historical and… Continue

When it comes to its education standards, Texas has had a lot of bad luck these last few years.
Whether they were contending with a willfully ignorant dentist whom Texas Governor Rick Perry somehow thought was qualified to chair the State Board of Education (SBoE) and who… Continue

Just some random thoughts I had while in the shower which I, of course, took while wearing a bathing suit because, as we all know, god cannot tolerate nudity.
Obviously, some time has passed since President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. But the thought only came into my head just today - how many people who believe that Creationism/Intelligent Design should be taught in schools and NOT evolution were also upset that Obama won the Peace prize. Personally, I don't think they should… Continue

This is technically off-topic for an Atheist website, but, then, this is the only place I'm reasonably assured to get a response or two, so...
Okay... here's the deal...
I need a graphic design done. It should be really simple to do, because there's no color other than black to it. You can put it on a white background if you want.
Basically, what I need is a computer-rendition of a tattoo that I really, really want. Sadly, I am not an artist... okay,… Continue

I started writing an "Unintelligent Design" book, documenting the problems with thinking that humans are intelligently designed. I started it about a year ago and am about 80 pages in but I have slowed considerably. I have all my ideas in line, but ran out of time and motivation. I am a medical student in Cleveland and really see a lot of flaws in the human body, having cut into several of them post-mortem. Just saying, and it's nothing new, that we are a poor fit for any environment; we are… Continue

last week i linked to the first news trickling out about a new paper by a NASA astrobiologist that purported to show that a meteorite contained fossilized bacteria. well, once people took a good look at the paper and its findings it became clear that the findings were absurd. lots of commentary on this one.

We hear a lot about how since there are working scientists who are critics of the theory of evolution through natural selection, it is a contradiction of our values of tolerance and skepticism to confine science teaching in high schools to ... um ... science. OK, if we want to put science curriculum up for a vote, let's calculate out how much time we should spend in high school science class in order to give these critics their due.
Let's look at the data. According to the Census… Continue

I caught this documentary the other day:
Flock of Dodos, about the intelligent design v. evolution debate raging in our school boards. It is pro-evolution, but also paints a melancholy picture of the evolution side, and why we are "Losing" on the public relations front (sort of). Although I want to add that we won in Kansas,… Continue

From Atheist Climber blog
As a child I was often told I had a vivid imagination, one that was filled with wonder and fantasy, and I loved the stories my parents would read to me. But I learned at a very young age that monsters and leprechauns were not real. While my imagination was allowed to flourish, my inquisitive nature was such that if I wanted to know about something, I was always… Continue

This was an essay for my college English class.
The origins of life have been debated and discussed for millennia. Ancient cultures, such as the Greeks, had their creation myths. Modern religion still supports using mythology based on a literal interpretation of scripture as a valid explanation for how life came to be. For the last one hundred and fifty years, the scientific community has supported evolution as the best explanation of how life came to be. However, there has been… Continue

For those that have me on thier Facebook you might already know some of this story. Right before the holidays, I hurt my back and went into the ER (As there is no Sick Call on shoreduty), and told that I just hurt my back in muscle strain and gave me a muscle relaxant shot and sent me home. They made an appointment for me to get an xray done of my back to see if there was any problems. In the xray they said that they saw something there. It looked to be about 3-5cm in diameter but couldnt tell… Continue

It is widely claimed that there can be no conflict, in principle, between science and religion because many scientists are themselves “religious,” and some even believe in the God of Abraham and in the truth of ancient miracles. Even religious extremists value some of the products of science—antibiotics, computers, bombs, etc.—and these seeds of inquisitiveness, we are told, can be patiently nurtured in a way… Continue
