"I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made." -Yahweh(?)/Moses(?)

I don't know about you, but that sure sounds like a guy I'd want to worship!

/sarcasm

No. My thoughts are more similar to this point of view:

noah

Really, it's more like a dad who drowned all of his children except for one kid and was like, "Don't worry. I won't murder you or any of the kids I have from here on out! Well, at least not by drowning all of them in a massive flood... You know I mean it too because I made you a pretty painting."

The truly…

Will Al Gore return his Oscar and Nobel now that NASA has shown it's all bollocks?

Dear members of TA,

 

I have found some in this excellent website belong to another type of church: I call it "The Al Gore Church of Irate Gaia".

 

Well, guess what: I bring good tidings for the Gaia Atheists like me: peer-reviewed study which shows, based on a NASA new satellite data, that the amount of heat let off by the atmosphere into space is greater than the one assumed for all the fatalistic models which Al Gore (et al) shoved down our…

How A Christian Lost His Faith

I thought it only appropriate for my first TA blog to be a story of how I lost my faith. Let it be a lesson on how to reason with the unreasonable. First a little background on where I came from.



I was raised in a Christian fundamentalist home. My uncle is a Petroleum Engineer which he thinks…

Running into a cathedral with a stick of dynamite



 

I’ve always been one to let curiosity get the best of me. On the playground as a child, I refused to use the space as it was intended the way other children did. I played on the roof, I played on the outside of the walls, I climbed up the support beams. I wasn’t inclined to be restricted by the ‘right’ way to interact with the space set out for me. This trend of individualism marked many important decisions in my life, from being an exchange student…

Opinions about the Bible are like noses: everyone has one

I am often surprised by the heat in discussions about the Bible, even amongst atheists. Questions about myth and history in the Old Testament and Jesus as a historical or mythical character result in people slinging references from their favorite experts, back and forth. I finally formulated an explanation for why everyone is a little wrong and little right in these discussions. No, I will not feed you some…

FOR WHOM WILL YOU VOTE?

HIGHLIGHT THE PURPLE WORDS TO VIEW.

Does it matter if you vote or not since corporations can spend as much money as they want to buy any election? Are your cherished notions about truth and freedom mere illusions? Are you being suckered by both parties who are playing 'good cop-bad cop' with you?…

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.…
