Rise of the Coffee Party - The Tea Party's Nemesis?

Shortly after Barack Obama was elected, a bizarre phenomenon came, seemingly out of nowhere. Suddenly the news was full of stories and images of a group of angry protesters calling themselves "The Tea Party." Although they claimed to be "populist" and "non-partisan" it should be obvious to anyone who has been following their political positions and the candidates they choose (all hard-right republicans) that they aren't "progressive" nor "populist"; and they are especially not…

Atheist Apologists and Liberal Christians.

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…

Atheist does not mean liberal - 99% in this site do not see it that way

Hello,

 

When I joined ThinkAtheist (I think it was a bit over a year ago) I was ecstatic to find a site which gathers people around a common topic - their atheism. However, I have come to be a bit disappointed on some little things - namely, the off-topics and the way of dismissing conservative opinions.

 

I've seen great discussions about the existence of God, and/or religion (which I believe should be the core of the site); but I've also seen several people…

What Has and Has NOT Changed? (The New and Not-So-New Normal of Marriage Equality)

Near the end of the first act of Kander and Ebb’s musical “Cabaret”, the character Herr Schultz observes, “How the world can change, it can change like that, due to one little word:  ‘Married.’”  Just a little over two weeks ago, on June 24, 2011, it seemed as if the world had changed “like that.”  The State of New York extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples—something it had declined to…

I'm actually a little scared.

When I was a child, I was told that I could be anything I wanted when I grew up. 

Most of us were, but my family tried to ensure that I was raised in an environment where I knew it in essence...where it wasn't just words. 

My grandparents always made sure that I had the opportunity to do martial arts, ballet, theater and soccer. When at the age of 12 or so I decided I wanted to play hockey, too. They encouraged me. 

After their death, I lived with an aunt and uncle. They…

..I'm not a liberal.

(But I'm thinking of starting a brand name. :)

 

I participate in more than a few news sites.  In fact, my cousin owns one of my favorites (No, I'm not telling which one.) 

I stay as publicly active on TA as possible. 

I vote in EVERY government election. 

We have come a long way.

We are quite possibly living in one of the most significant times in modern…

The Bible is WRONG!

Yeah, that's right! I'm one of those godless heathen non-believers, and I say that your holy book is full of inaccuracies! It's not historically reliable at all, let alone divine and inerrant! Contrary to what all those hard-line conservative fundamentalist wackaloons think, it actually contains numerous-



Wait.



What?



Some of the conservative nut-jobs are with me on this? Those same freakazoids who believe the universe was created 6,000 years ago based on a… Continue

Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens may be rude, but they have been effective

The vehemence, perhaps even violence, with which Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens attack religious belief makes many people uncomfortable. Yes, they are rude, and a lot of atheists give them crap about it, but not me.



Sure, they all claim to have heard from people who have heard their rants and converted on the spot to atheism, but for the most part I think they preach to the choir, anger the faithful and amuse everyone else. However ineffective I think they are… Continue

In Texas, a teacher has just been suspended for being an atheist and a liberal. Just one more reason why we unbelievers need to step up our presence in America. The link to the article is below:
