We had a talk with someone from Concern on Friday.Every year they hand out forms for a fast and this year a fast is going on as normal but we can do other stuff as well such as hold a bakesale or a no-uniform day.I want to get a hoodie as it will be too cold to wear a t-shirt and have some ideas as to what can be on the hoodie but can't decide and I'm pretty sure the people on Think Atheist will have some cool,origanal ideas,unlike me who just copies ideas.
These are my…Continue
Today I got a t-shirt printed.On the front it says "Religions:they can't all be true..." and on the back it says "but they can all be false".I can't remember the name of the person who put up that saying but thanks to whoever it was anyway.
When I was walking to the printing shop I was getting a bit nervous because I was going with my dad and I never hinted about me being an atheist.I was worried he would treat me different when he knew what was going onto the t-shirt.There…Continue
This the best use for a confession box in my opinion.
Some Catholics may well sweat in the confessional as they admit to things they shouldn't have done. But Vienna's archdiocese has ruled that the box-like structure cannot be turned into a sauna.
Bidding on a confessional described on eBay as ideal for conversion into a one-person sauna, a small bar or a children's playhouse ended when the archdiocese stepped in.
Archdiocese spokesman Erich…Continue
If the god that these people believed in did exist,I would think he/she/it would make sure they weren't hurt while on his/her/its "holy" mountain.
RESCUE services were forced to carry an injured pilgrim from near the peak of Croagh Patrick to the base because bad weather conditions had prevented a helicopter from landing.
And in another shocking incident, a 10-year-old boy who was ascending the mountain was knocked over by a woman who fell on…
I'm a bit bored after finishing school (weird) and wanted to talk about something.
I am not sure how Gary Wells can state something so obvious ("It's up to you," Letters/Jan. 22) and receive so much flak. He is, if anything, too lenient on the Bible bashers, seeing them as only being too into themselves and being lax in seeing the harm they do. Dino Wenino's Jan. 27 letter nit picks Gary's "Lord" to pretty well say the same thing as Gary.
Being more interested in how…Continue
Why in the name of God (oops sorry, didn't mean to be so insensitive/offensive), does RTE give an entire 'Liveline' over to a tiny rump of deranged atheists to spout their puerile propaganda? Just what is their gripe?
Well it turns out they are annoyed at the prospect that proposed legislation will make it an offence to gratuitously offend religion: in reality, Catholicism (their big bogeyman). The big question is, though, what kind of ideology gets it…
Last week a couple of people from my year got a laminated piece of paper that had a prayer on it.The title was Exam Prayer.It was a prayer to be said to god asking him to help them do good in the junior cert.
If they all get A+ I'm going to be a christian and pray the whole time.Hopefully a year of praying will help me get good results in the leaving cert.
I'm having a bit of trouble with my ex-friend.She knows I don't believe there is a god and has started talking to me about it.I couldn't really hear her properly because of her roaring at me.I could make out a couple of words which were: "The bible is proof god exists","God died on the cross" and "God did exist".I'm assuming she means Jesus was alive in the last comment.I'm also having some trouble with my very best friend.She is a christian who comes from a more religious family.She's fine…Continue
