Charles Chilton Moore: The father of American atheism

In celebration of Freedom of Speech Week (observed October 18-24), I would like to illuminate the life of one of America's first prominent, outspoken atheists, Charles Chilton Moore, a man who was jailed for blasphemy because the sensitive Bible Belt dwellers of his time just couldn't stomach a little competition.When one considers prominent United States atheists, depending on the social circles with which one regularly associates, the list is likely to be rather short. While there are many…See More

The Mystery in the Box

I was just looking in my neighbor’s yard. There is a large wooden crate behind his deck that hasn’t been touched in the last 6 months. As far as I can tell, it is there to stay. This got me thinking about people’s belief in god.If my neighbor told me that inside his crate was $1 billion, I would probably call him crazy. But if he told me that I could have the $1 billion, he might pique my interest for a moment. I’d want to see some sort of proof or obtain some form of collateral, but he would…See More

Pastor Maury Davis quick to condemn others considering violent past

Senior Pastor Maury Davis of Cornerstone Church, a megachurch in Madison, today condemned President Obama on his Twitter feed for being "pro-Islam." He went on to say that he "can't imagine Christ saying one good thing about any other faith."Without pointing out the most glaring things that are wrong with this man's statements, it should be noted that Pastor Davis was convicted of first-degree murder at age eighteen, a fact he openly…See More

Rep. Zach Wamp wants you to know he is Christian

With his latest ad, Rep. Zach Wamp wants you to remember that he is a Christian. It's not enough that he claims to have a strong conservative record behind him, you must know his personal religious views in order to make an informed decision. It is not enough that they believe what they believe, you must know what they believe and preferably also…See More

About Me:
I am an atheist blogger living in middle Tennessee. The Bible Belt has provided me with enough angst to fuel a passion for writing and blogging for more than 4 years. I've been AWOL as of late as I have finished my master's degree, but I'm anxious to get back into blogging part time.

I will be focusing most of my publishing on AtheistNexus, Facebook, Twitter, and my website.

Greetings, God is Pretend! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

Hi. I can't believe this worked. I've gotten friend requests before and somehow couldn't access the site.
I do recognize some very familiar feelings being expressed here. It's good.

How could I NOT accept an invite from someone that has such a firm grasp of reality, logic and reason?

Excellent website BTW.

Hi, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinking non-theists who recognise that religion is largely a huge deception aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 290 discussion topics.
We invite you to join us and 1700 others.
