Human Rights are not 'god given', if they were, we'd have a terrible time deciding what a human is. As an Atheist it's simple for me - all homo sapiens are human beings. No religion can change this! So, if you're reading this and are indeed of the homo genus, you are human; if you're not -… Continue

I recently watched a youtube post from Hemant Mehta, who I absolutely love by the way, where he spoke about "9 things Atheists should stop saying". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2L9nuGVKdg0
It's a brilliant video and filled with lots of great tips. However, I had to take note with the point about calling Christians out on cherry-picking. Allow me to explain.
We have all accused believers… Continue

A bus driver for the Burnsville school district was fired last week for leading kids in Christian prayers on his bus, even after he was warned to stop — a move he considers a violation of his freedom of speech.
George Nathaniel, 49, of Richfield, who is also a pastor for a… Continue

I've had a relatively good life. I was never abused, impoverished or homeless. I was born with loving parents, who raised me in a Baptist household. They were missionaries for years and I was a child, impressionable and naive. I was raised on a diet of the usual well-minded christian brainwashing. But my story only becomes applicable 2009.
Till I was 15, I coasted. Sure I prayed occasionally, went to church with my parents, believed in Jesus as the lord and all that, but I… Continue

What a lucky day. By chance i found something that obviously escaped my notice before and which i haven't found much reported in the media either.
Already last month the UN issued a statement concerning the freedom of speech in relation with the human rights convention.
Here is the good part (emphasis mine):
48. Prohibitions of displays of lack of respect for a…

Damon Fowler, a high school senior at Bastrop High School in Louisiana, is being called an Atheist Hero in many forums and blogs this morning. Damon called for his school not to use a Christian prayer during their graduation ceremony, citing Louisiana law. Due to a threat of the ACLU, the school district decided to remove the prayer from their graduation program...but things only got worse for Damon. He has received death threats from other students, been slandered by his teacher, and has… Continue

Religion disallows people to make their own plans. Many things were not done due to worshiping. It takes away time and money. Theism doesn't protect freedom.

Its been awhile since i blogged here but i had some thoughts on my head.
I think that religion (animism, poly, then monotheism) is so embedded in human history that its purpose was to articulate the chaos that makes up the natural world and also explains the suffering and frustration afflicted by human inhabitants. In other words, religion provided a method for the worlds madness.
Now here's my question do you think that if we had world peace,… Continue

I am an American.
On top of that I am also a Texan.
I was born in Texas and can trace my family coming to Texas in the 1850’s.
Most of my family came from the United Kingdom. The rest came from Europe.
Some have been in the United States since the early 1700’s. Some fought in the American Revolution against England.
For what I can tell, they all were “Christians” of some sort or another.
I am an Atheist.
I’ve been an Atheist since the age of six.… Continue

I went to a place called the AOG (Assembly Of God) it was here that i thought i would give religion a try
however i had everyone coming up to me with this big hollywood type smile, old ladies hugging me young guys shaking my hand etc.
The preaching started and certain verses like you can be saved were spoken to which the pastor would look right at me when saying those certain types of verses, then the collection plate came around and people were flipping money in it all over the… Continue

I wrote this on Facebook a few weeks ago. I intended there to be more added to it over time but I haven't gotten around to it yet...
Why is the Atheist Grumpy?
This atheist is grumpy for a couple of reasons.
Let me first establish something that I think many religious folk don't or perhaps refuse to understand about atheists. We are human beings, just like you. We have ears to hear what you say, we have eyes to see what you do, we have emotions that work the… Continue

A atheist friend brought this up and I thought I would share it. "Atheists need to come up with a fake religion and convince hundreds of thousands of people to join it. When we gain hundreds of religious members, we pull the curtain and let everyone that joined know that it was all made up, and show people how easy it is to be convinced to live a certain reality, even if that reality is not real. Just a thought."
