Strategies for dealing with crazies

There have been a considerable amount of violent protests around the world in the past week or so. So, what to do? It is wise to think about whether your actions are rewarding or punishing actions. For example, if laws were successfully passed in Western countries that restricted free speech against the Quran or Mohammad […]

Atheist Response to Rabbi

The Huffington Post recently posted An Open Letter to the Atheist Community by Rabbi Adam Jacobs. The reason behind his letter is "so that we can understand each other better and possibly "walk back" some of the clamorous dialogue." Sounds reasonable enough -- let's see where this goes. I'll be quoting from his letter throughout […]

Can morality be scientific?

Image via Wikipedia There has been some back-and-forth in the comments of my blog, and I wanted to let the discussion out for a bit more air. Jason has been arguing that he thinks that Sam Harris fails to make the case for a scientific morality. I think my criticism is more damaging to Harris' […]

Homosex is immoral -- an atheist responds

Image via Wikipedia I recently walked through a large hostile crowd that had formed around a small group of Christians holding signs talking about the evils of homosexuality. The people surrounding the sign-bearers were largely upset about the signs -- probably a number of Christians, and definitely a number of atheists, as well. The interactions […]

The Department for the Study of Wishful Thinking

The New York Times published an article Nov 12th, The Burning Bush They’ll Buy, but Not ESP or Alien Abduction, by Mark Oppenheimer. It tells the story of a religious studies Professor who wants to increase the scope of religious studies to include all kinds of nonsense. I think he wants to include essentially every […]

In Adelaide, South Australia (ironically known as the City of Churches) the street preachers get arrested as soon as they open their silly gobs.

There used to be an old pepaw who would stand on the corner of Robson and Granville in Vancouver and lead the Saturday night god-squad routine.

I later saw him on an episode of Dr. Phil - for molesting his daughter and grandson.

And that is a 100% true story.

I'm sure if you went to Granville and Robson between 7pm and 8pm on a Sat, you'd see him.

Why are leaders of the flock so damn perverted?

Oh youtube, why oh why do I find the comment section so vile and yet so entertaining at the same time?

One thing I've learned in regards to debating the religitards, eventually they rip off their mask of calm faithfulness, and in a blind rage, call you a faggot while condemning you to death and then an eternity of hell.

And all because we dare to ask the questions that stump them.

Is it wrong to feel so satisfied when your opponent reaches that level of frustration? It's not, is it?

Ya hear that? The main resource of our universe is irony.

I must admit that this is a new one on me. I also fail to grasp their point, but that is not surprising.

I just had the granddaddy of batshittery as a reply to me today on youtube.

Behold the quote:
I think A-theism is a religion because the main resource of our universe is irony. I believe A-theism because I can. I believe that A-theism is also an opinion.

Ya hear that? The main resource of our universe is irony.

@Proudmumma atheist:
I personally don't see it as debating when I go "seeking" confrontation say on youtube or a forum, or face to face. I see it as Educating, or enlightening them. Of course like you, if they confront me with their 4th grade educated minds, then I will defend my position like an iron clad wall defending against a cat furiously scratching against it. Not damaging, just rather annoying xD.

Ya, you're right for the most part proudmumma.I myself look at it like a hobby and really enjoy the thrill of a confrontation with someone who thinks they have all of the answers and then realize that they don't. It's fun to hear the wildly varying explanations of difficult bible verses and other religious issues.

Does God Have a Future?

A 30-minute edited version of this debate will air late this evening on ABC Nightline’s Faceoff. Or, if you prefer to see the full 90-minute debate, you can watch it online now. The debate featured Michael Shermer and Sam Harris on one side with Deepak Chopra and Jean Houston on the other side.
