If religion has caused more death and destruction then anything else in the history of mankind, why do people still practice any form of religion.

Much of what people do is done in the name of God. Irishmen blow each other up in his name. Arabs blow themselves up in his name. Imams and ayatollahs oppress women in his name. Celibate popes and priests mess up people's sex lives, and allow the molestation of young boys in their churches, in his name.The achievements of religion in past history has only been bloody crusades, torturing inquisitions, mass-murdering conquistadors, culture-destroying missionaries, repression of women and… Continue

Young girl in Iran gets arrested and manhandled for wearing bad headscarf!

A young girl inside of Iran (this happened recently but I do not have exact date) was arrested for "bad hijab" or headscarf and was forced into the car and kicked by the cop as a sign of disrespect that she is "trash" in their minds. We can only hope that this poor sister was also not raped and we can only imagine worse...the brutal Islamic Republic of Terror…

From My Outside Blog: Another Apocalypse that Didn't Happen

Has it ever occurred to apocalypse-eager Christians that spending 2000 years obsessively waiting and preparing for the end of the world is not just disturbing but a waste of the one life you do have?

Recalling Theatre of Blood as the Roman Catholic Mass

 

Theatre of Blood is the first horror flick I recall ever seeing.

 

I saw this film in the early 70’s when a network station broadcast it edited for television. I was 7 or 8 and my older cousins were all hanging out in the dark with the eerie glow of the…

Thanks to Derek M for posting the link to the video below of Christopher Hitchens exploring in much more cogent fashion my problems with C.S. Lewis argument for the divinity of Christ, CS Lewis: The Nonesensical Argument for Christ's Divinity.

True Atheists??

With days like these, it makes you wonder how many atheists will "repent" or once again believe.  They may have these feelings just because fear has been bestowed upon them since times are supposedly ending. Just a random thought. This whole end of times situation is full of inconsistency. Again, just my thoughts. Thanks.

Muhammed Steals the Raptchuhhrr!

It's Draw Muhammed Day  meets "The Rapture", coincidence?... I don't think so.

 

I predict this wouldn't set well over where Muslim extremists' at, raging all fury, and, perhaps, furry wrath. That will, subsequently, draw a snowball effect, rekindling the horror of both The Crusade/The Inquisition, in which they(fundies of the Abrahamic faith), all gather near the holy lands, in a vicious holywar that would end in killing them…

The burden of proof lies on religion.

So I posted this on Tumblr and it's received a few notes in the past few days:

 

 

The response that caused me to retort was the view "back the fuck off, I'll believe what I want" meaning the message in the picture has either been completely ignored or went totally over their head.

HAHAHAHAA wow. I “must” - huh?

My boyfriend the philosopher always suggests that science is just a series of theories. For example, we don’t know…

The Myth of the Risen Christ - The Problem of the Historical Jesus & The Origins of Christian Tradition

Last night I posted a video of an interview with Dr. Matt McCormick that argues against the reliability for the evidence of Jesus’ resurrection by comparing it to the Salem Witch Trials. The argument is amusing and reasonably makes sense, although in an interview he had on Think Atheist Radio, May, 8th, he admitted he didn’t think anyone would really bite on the bullet, so to speak. It turns out that there exist those who have.

 

One of the people commenting on the…

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…

I will no longer hide my atheism.

For years now, I have struggled with the idea that I may loose friends and family because of my beliefs, or lack thereof. I've sat on the sidelines while people speak of their god, usually just nodding along in agreement. In the recent months, I've noticed that I have been unable to hold onto this mask. I no longer held my head down in prayer, just waiting for it to be over. I hold my head up and do not acknowledge the ritual. Some may feel that this is disrespectful. I do not feel this way…

Rock Beyond Belief

Billy Graham and many, many other Christian people get together to host "Rock The Fort." A convention full of Jesus-lovers that takes place on America's military bases. Now, you would think that the separation of church and state would apply here but good 'ol America ignored that part and funded the event.

Another Piece of "A Journey of Faith" [My Memoire] - The Birth of My Sister

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…

Top Ten Harmful Spiritual Beliefs Part One

In no particular order of preference, here is part one of the most harmful spiritual beliefs and why.



1. Karma, hell and punishment systems.

These are designed to create fear and control people through the belief that they will pay in some way for their thoughts, feelings and behaviours here on earth. As no-one is a master of their own minds then why would they be punished for not being in full control.  This expectation just creates guilt and stress as people try to… Continue

Where is Separation of Church and State?

  • In taking oath for public office in the name of God?
  • In federal governments faith based partnerships?
  • In making churches pay no taxes?
  • In having a national day of prayer?
  • In taking away the choice of women to get an abortion? 
  • In creating laws against women who want to get abortion, by denying them any financial help, forcing them to get ultrasound scans before abortion?
  • In blocking of teaching of evolution in schools?
  • In…
