On the Immorality of Christianity

The languid success of logic and facts to dislodge believers from their mistaken beliefs, calls for a new course in the claim for morality’s mantle; religion fails humanity on ethics.There appears to be no amount of reason or facts that will extricate believers from their cognitive biases, or the nucleus of their intractable, mistaken, and teleological beliefs. Non-theists, in my humble, yet scholarly opinion, need to set aside the Pathos and Logos based arguments. Instead, nonbelievers must…See More

Huffington Post joins “accommodationist viewpoint,” announces "religious section" exclusively edited by believers!

Glib title, “Announcing HuffPost Religion: Believers and Non-Believers Welcome,” proves untrue for Arriana Huffington and her flagship internet newspaper, the Huffington Post. Arriana Huffington unwisely capitulates to the shrill stridency of the now quasi-theocratic America and announces a section dedicated solely to religion[1] without an offsetting voice for the non-theist’s viewpoint. The entire section is edited and moderated by believers only, and ignores tens of millions of Americans—and…See More

When Religion's Apologists Attack!

As religion and its sycophants continue to crumble under the weight of science and reason, its exponents have dialed up the polemics and the deceit.





Jacqueline Maley's editorial, "Atheism's true believers gather"[1], published in The Sydney Morning Herald is one of the most disingenuous, inaccurate portrayals of atheists—replete with some of the most outlandish faulty logic… Continue

Renowned Skeptic Michael Shermer: Deist or Just Disingenuous?

Posted on December 3, 2009 at 7:48am 1 Comment

Has the once-luminary champion of skepticism, and self-proclaimed atheist, recast his lot with religion and thereby reclaimed his erstwhile lost Ichthys?





As an independent scholar, skeptic and atheist, I have followed Dr. Michael Shermer for some years, read all but one of his books, and attended a number of his public lectures, such as TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design.) Shermer is a dynamic, engaging speaker, talented author, and is prolific in his… Continue
