Life, the universe, and everything

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…

A little story of my Atheist life...

This is my first blog post, and probably the only one I'll make in for a long time, but this a little story, a scene that happened in my insignificant portion of Humanity's history that I call life.



I'm Portuguese, and it's often said that about 90% of our population is Catholic. The fact that there are so many festivities, religious monuments and "saints" or catholic figures (usually by the name of "Our Lady of -something-") is kind of proof of this. In fact, religion is so… Continue

A simple word change can make a difference.

Catching up on the local news today, I read about a teenager (18) who has been showing nude photos to under age people and allegedly also molested 2 others. 



The first article -from a local CNN affiliate- I ran into said:



A Henderson teen is under arrest, charged with statutory rape, sexually battery and a probation violation.The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint about 18-year-old Westley Aaron Williams, of Fletcher, showing nude pictures to…

coincidence?

So I have a pretty interesting story, eh, maybe not. You be the judge.



Anyway, my cousins and I were out to eat today at a Chinese restaurant. After our meal we got our fortune cookies as usual, and I got jipped. Mine didn't have a piece of paper in it. My cousin Mike said "maybe it's because you dont beleive in that kinda stuff" They all said "yeah, you're an atheist". lol well, my cousin Tiff, who is very religious opened her's and it said Hallelujah.… Continue

Life matters... All life. Period.

So I was listening to a song today, and part of it includes the audio of a preacher. The preacher states that "We find it easy to crush a worm we see crawling on the earth, so it is easy for God to cast his enemies down to hell".



To me, this seems to address the moral stance of unending torture. (IE: How could a loving God torture people forever?) To the preacher in question, we are like worms to God, and he doesn't think twice about torturing us lowly Atheists. This says something… Continue

Having meaning without a meaning.

Recent conversation on here has caused me to write this blog. My apologies if someone has already covered this, but I haven't been on as much as I'd like lately.



Religious people often state that their religion gives their life a meaning. It is then the obvious counter claim that they say that we as Atheists must feel life is worthless since we don't have religion behind us. There is some truth there, but the answer is not what they claim it to be. I do in fact think that there is no… Continue
