Are you kidding me with this...."Find God's match for you"

Does anyone else find this slogan for christianmingle.com unbelievably hypocritical.  When speaking to most fundamentalist Christians I have found that they will generally say that God will basically make everything happen.  God will provide everything for them no matter how great or small.  This dating site slogan is so repulsive to me that I felt I had to ignite a discussion about it.  It's just more of the same, say one thing and mean another all the time with some Christians.  Sometimes…

Death Calls for Saudi Poet and Blogger..Plz Sign Petition to save him!

 A young saudi writer, Hamza Kashgari, has fled the country for fear for his safety after receiving many death threats through the social media (twitter, youtube, facebook...etc.) Hamza is now detained by the Malaysian government after the King of Saudi Arabia requested his extradition to Saudi. We beg of you to help us with all you can to prevent his extradition to Saudi, as this may threaten his life.

The story started on Saturday, when Hamza wrote three…

Where the hell are we all headed??

I'm not a doom and gloom type. I generally see the glass as half full. But I must confess, as I let my mind connect the dots of the economy, the ecology, the downward IQ of society as a whole, at least American society, I feel a dispair I have never experienced.  Perhaps it's some sort of midlife crisis, but I don't think so.  I see our leaders going back and forth with one another, each blaming the other, and NOBODY offering any real plan to get us on track for the future.  America has…

My Response to, "I'll Pray for You"

The "I'll Pray for You" is the ultimate conversation ender, or useless phrase thrown in which can be used in a variety of variations: goodbye, you're a fool, oh you're sick that's so sad but I'm not going to do anything of value, (while struggling with demon inside the collar of your shirt) you're... threatening... me... with reason... and I need... a way... out, you're going to war and i'm your honey. It pisses me off. They use it for everything and then what is a normal non-believer…

Authoritian personality

I visited the Alaskan (affiliated with American Atheists) site and found this very interesting free ebook.   Here is the link: http://files.meetup.com/534941/TheAuthoritarians.pdf

I am intrigued by the research, having not really read much of the social sciences literature (but will certainly do so now).  The book is written for the 'lay' reader, and is a summation of much of the research done over the last 40 years or…

great article on the SSA! A must read for optimistic atheists

I just have to share great news when I read it, and this recent article concerning this relatively new student organization's progress brightened my day.  I hope it does the same for you guys.

 

"Nothing demonstrates this point more clearly than the rapid growth of the Secular Student Alliance, the umbrella group for organized atheism and humanism on college campuses (and now high schools as well). SSA chapters have grown from less…

Another Piece of "A Journey of Faith" [My Memoire] - The Birth of My Sister

This is a part of my memoire, and one of my most powerful personal arguments against the existence of God. It details a newborn infant fighting desperately for her life and her victory, not through a god, but through humanity and lucky chance.

 

 

 

          That night of November 20th, my grandmother made dinner and Rob and Grampa and I sat down anxiously awaiting news. The news came late into the night. I wasn’t…

Reminising on 9/11 - Did it lead to my atheism 8 years later?

On September 11, 2001 I was 12-years old. The same age [ironically] of many of the fundamentalist muslim child brides in the middle east. I was had just "graduated" from grade school at Ayer Elementary School and was beginning my education as a 7th grader at Nagel Middle School.

The day started out so ordinary as to be unnerving.

Most of my memory of my childhood is foggy... but this day... I shall never forget. I can see it as clearly now [nearly a decade later] as I…

Excuse for hatred

Religion is a dangerous idea. It gives people an excuse to justify hatred.

PRAYER AND ROSC

In regards to Surviving a Cardiac Arrest-I have been told by Chirstians and Catholics that prayers can really help. If the Patient survies they take credit for it if he dies well "God was to busy" or had another purpose for the Patient.

In my experience Patients survive a rescusitation from Cardiac Arrest d/t a few factors:

-Down time-Brain death, hypoxia

-Physical condition (progression and type of disease pathology present pre…

Smut for Smut - Exchange your Bible for Porn

I almost spit out my confession wafer when I read that a group of students at that University of Texas, San Antonio campus, are convincing students to let go of their Bibles and embrace the wonderful world of pornography. The atheist group, Atheist Agenda, is again offering porn to any student over the age of 18 willing to part with their beloved book in their "Smut for Smut" campaign indicating that looking at porn is no worse… Continue

Why?(and what?)

Why is there a God?

There a billions of stars in a galaxy and millions of galaxies in the universe. Many of these stars aren't even medium yellow like our sun. The odds of a planet forming to Earth-like standards are actually microscopic, even if other planet types can form the basics of life. Our planet is one tiny speck in a vast universe. I would almost call it insignificant.

What makes you think we're the center of some grand cosmic scheme of some importance?

If God is so… Continue

God ≠ Santa

“God is Santa Clause for grown ups.” You’ve probably heard this before, it’s a fairly common quip used by atheists to illustrate their view on both the existence and purpose of a personal deity. It’s also a surefire way to get under the skin of most any theist. Is it fair though? Are we oversimplifying the punishment and reward aspects of the typical religious dogma we encounter? Are we just trying to make their beliefs out to be childish? After giving the subject a bit of thought recently, I… Continue

I did not become an atheist because of what others said, I simply was an atheist. What I found interesting is that when I actually did find the atheist community, many of the arguments I had formed for myself had been formed by others. Reading what other non-theists had written was like a trip down memory lane, for I had reached the same conclusions, independently, many years before I ever read other non-theists thoughts. Like many I have read, they thought they were the only ones, a… Continue

Recovering Southern Fundamentalist Christian Takes Musical Jab at Palin

Picture by Jim Wilson/The New York Times



Less than three weeks before the 2008 Presidential Election, real life hockey mom Sandy Riccardi and her moose Richard Riccardi (SanRich) aimed their musical weapon at Sarah Palin and took the internet by storm. Some have credited their song, Hockey Mama for Obama with clinching the election for Obama (but they don’t.)… Continue
