Why I am an Atheist?

Growing up I never had the same longing for a higher power. I was forced by my parents to follow a particular religious rituals and they would bore me. I would go through the motions of doing the religious rituals. In my late teenage years in the college when I ran through the tough times I found solace in praying for higher power. It was very comforting to pray for a higher power and have all my trouble transfered, one who would help me get through the college and…

What I *do* like about religions

It's a common misconception (not to mention a sweeping generalization) that all atheists hate everything about religion.  I for one can say that that isn't so.  So in hopes of building bridges--and being less of the "negative nancy" I seem to have been lately--I thought I'd write a list of things that I do like about various religions, and I encourage commenters to do the same.  After all, we're all sharing this tiny pale blue dot together.

The Hamza Tzortzis Delusion

This article is found in my website, Uncompromising Rhetoric





Prelude: Are Atheists reluctant to confront Islam?

As I was reading about professor Hawking blasting his way onto headline news online, I stumbled on a quite astonishing website of an Islamic fundamentalist, Hamza Tzortzis, known to his fellow…

Religious Responsibility

This is an Op-Ed that I wrote for OpEdnews.com. Monicks has been asking me to post it here, so I hope you all enjoy it...



Have you ever read your terms of use for Facebook? How about Google? If you did, there would be some phrases, if you can decipher them in the jargon, which you may find objectionable. However, they are tools for the modern world, and you would probably continue to utilize them anyway, knowing full well that they are, using… Continue

If people are not worried about Muslims, they should be!!

After seeing this video, it just further angered me and just made me dislike Muslims even more. I did not know anything about the practice of taqiyya. I always figured those fuckers were lying, always known that they are trying to impose sharia law on the entire world, because the Quran demands… Continue

The Ideas and Influence of al-Ghazzali

Following my introduction (2 paragraphs) are selected excerpts from Wikipedia's article on al-Ghazzali. Many historians, Muslim or not, believe al-Ghazzali is the most influential Muslim since the Prophet Muhammad. He single-handedly shifted early Arab ideals away from Greek philosophy to orthodox Islam. Despite being a scientist, philosopher and innovator himself, Ghazzali's prolific and influential writings heralded the end… Continue

Ritual Slaughtered Animals

"Coop", one of the biggest retailer in Switzerland, decided to sell meat slaughted according to Islamic rites, which involves cutting the animals' throat with a very sharp knife and letting them bleed dry. For the most Islamic people this must be done without stunning the animals and they (the animals, not the people ) suffer a lot[1].



Slaughter animals without stunning is forbidden in Switzerland, so I think they will import the meat from abroad.



Coop wants to expand its… Continue

Feminism and Islam

I recently came across a Muslim website called submission.org. “Submission”, is the literal translation of the word “Islam”, and it refers to the believer’s obligation to blindly follow whatever god commands him. In Judaism there is a similar injunction referred to as the “yoke of the kingdom of heaven”. It is the belief that only god decides how we should live, and we are not allowed to disobey whether we like it or not . While all religions stress this… Continue

Modesty or Misogyny

I like modesty; I think it's a good virtue. Especially when it comes to sex, I think modesty has nothing to do with what you're wearing. A woman can be covered from head to toe and still be sensual, and she can be completely naked and completely un-sexual- as seen in nudist colonies where people go about their lives without clothes- while somehow managing to function.



However when it comes to sex and religion, all hell breaks loose. Man is cataloged a sex hungry beast unable to… Continue

Play your gods right

My pun muscles are letting me down if that's the best I can come up with. The New Humanist's "Zeal or no Zeal?" is perfect, and there must be other religion/game-show wordplay possibilities out there. I'll keep trying.



The point is, people in Turkey are going to be trying to convert some atheists on a TV panel show, by the clever application of flawless logic and the careful presentation of substantial evidence… 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.

A letter to my wifes islamic cousin

**updated the letter**



Hi



You should know that we do love you and care about you; this is why I am sending you this email; please do read it all the way through.



I remember chatting to you in 2002 on yahoo messenger and remember one of the very few discussions we had and that was religion; at this time I thought I was christian and you claimed to be Atheist; what could have made you change from being an Atheist to believing in the teachings of… Continue

Dear people of differnt faiths.

Dear people of different faiths.



You are all apparently going to hell or where ever it is you believe the bad guys go.



According to the Christians if you don't follow the bible you will go to hell, according to Islam if you don't follow the Qur’an you will go to Jahannam; Jehovah's witnesses believe that if you are not a Jehovah's witness you will not gain entry to paradise therefore ceasing to be.



All religions believe in different ways of getting to 'Heaven'… Continue

Iraqi woman had 80 women raped to recruit them as suicide bombers

"An Iraqi woman suspected of recruiting more than 80 female suicide bombers has confessed to organizing their rapes so she could later convince them that martyrdom was the only way to escape the shame."

Here is a link to the article:

Only a religious person could be this evil.
