OK, so this post is very long overdue. I have been struggling to keep up to my blogging duties due to the small matter of university exams. However, you will be pleased to know that they have finished, and so has my blogging hiatus. So, a welcome back is in order.
I am going to start this post by saying that…Continue

Ecclesiastes 1:1 to 12:1
1:1 The words of the preacher, the son of King David in Jerusalem.
Everything is nothing, absolutely nothing. Everything is absolutely nothing. People live and people die but the Earth just keeps on keeping on. The sun rises and the sun sets.…

There are two distinct ways of leading your life. The first is to follow someone else into obscurity – blind, cold, and full of false promises. All over the world, there is a plethora of false prophets ready to abuse your faith and trust, ready to betray you at the next moment if it is to their own advantage.
The second, then, is to enlighten the way in front of you by your own lights – take reason as your guide, and it shall never betray you. You may be wrong from time…

My first blog.. let's hope we don't get bored?
I have been working alongside people of whom moved to my country from India. When i started my job (my FIRST job at 16) I hoped i could be guided and helped along the way. Don't get me wrong- i was; by the owner. He (who came from KENYA and INDIA) left us in charge when he thought i was able to sustain the shop on my own (after three months) Which meant i was left to work around my manager and three colleagues (one of which no…Continue

Hello all, I recently have just been to myself, and began to think deeply about life in its entirety. This self-discussion has led to a small amount of depression. I feel as if religion puts value on human life, and yet at the same time, looks down on it, looking forward to the "afterlife". They say thou shall not kill, etc, all moralistic things in human nature. Then they say, just follow your "god" and you'll have eternal love/happiness/etc in the afterlife. My point is, I have come to…Continue

Very interesting article on whether the discovery of alien life would shatter religious belief..
I just joined Think Atheist and have finally got the courage to stand for my own beliefs.
But my girlfriend believes in God and is a devout Catholic. She once told me that she
didn't know how she could have a relationship with me if I didn't believe [in god]. So...
I don't know what to tell her, and I don't want to lie to her anymore. Any suggestions?

I was inspired by another member's blog entry to post about how I came to reject religion and settle into atheism.
I spent much of my childhood in various foster homes. I won't go into detail about the whys of it, just know I was in roughly 4 homes. Each foster family boasted of being a "loving, Christian home". But while in their care I suffered physical and emotional abuse, neglect, and flat out rejection because I wasn't their kid. I felt like an outsider, and I had no one…Continue

I bent the binding of The Good Atheist, Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God, by Dan Barker, in hopes that I would either come out of it in some way affirmed or finally have a resource for a person struggling with the decision to let go of their faith. When I closed the book, I felt like a sore eared member of the choir. The majority of Barker’s book is an appeal to authority and celebrity, a mishap of astonishing proportion when speaking about, to, or for, a community that…Continue

As an opener I'd like to state that my worldview has absolutely nothing to do with my atheism. I like to think that were I a theist I would still hold life, the universe, and everything in exactly the same regards. This post is not intended to answer any questions about nor explain my view on theism. Correlation does not imply causation. That being said, let us proceed.
Where did we…Continue
Beware of those who try to tell you what it is that you must believe.
Beware of those who try to sell you a false morality, based upon an ancient idea of piety or on changing societal norms.
There will never be a shortage of people trying to tell you how you should be living your life or how you should believe. Some of these people even love you and therefore are well meaning. However, always remember what your Daddy…
What I Have Lived For
Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a great ocean of anguish, reaching to the very verge of despair.
I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy—ecstasy so great that I…
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…Continue
