What do you think are some of the most popular, widely accepted, or widely encountered misconceptions regarding atheism and atheists that you have run up against?


One of the most popular misconceptions I've encountered is the idea that atheists don't think that "good" and "bad" exist, and that we think everyone should be allowed to do as they please because deeds are not good or bad.

What are some of the other biggies?

Some reasons to be an atheist



Of course you don't become an atheist if you really believe in God. But if you logically have come to the conclusion that there is no god, should you still lie to yourself? I don't see what good it will do. On the contrary, a false belief in gods has several disadvantages. As an atheist:



1. You don't have to believe the preachers on funerals when they tell you that your loved ones where sinful. (I found it extremely bothersome on my… Continue

My Morbid Musings

This morning I was talking to my mother and I mentioned that my ex boyfriend's grandmother had passed away yesterday. She inquired whether or not it had been sudden and I replied 'she was winding down for awhile'. My mother thought this was an... interesting way of putting it. But isn't that generally what death is?

There was a time when the use of animal organs in medicine gave many of us an attack of the moral heebie-jeebies. It was considered bestial, degrading and, well, rather yucky. No longer. Even the conservative Senator Jesse Helms, suffering from a coronary condition in the 1990s, gratefully consented to having a pig's heart valve, and I suspect most of us, offered a choice… Continue
