"You are wrong. Period. You are a victim/benefactor of information privilege. It is not shocking to see atheists bad at critical thinking, though, its a human trait and not a religious one."

"If they have "faith," then they have embraced a great evil and a great danger to the survival of our species.  Faith is as anti-human as poverty, cruelty, famine and pestilence."

Chasers war on everything and how Australia once again over-reacts

Posted on June 10, 2009 at 7:38am 3 Comments

For those not in the know, The chasers war on everything is an Australian comedy sketch series. It's filled with black comedy and frequently takes stabs at Aust politics and culture. Their latest show involved a gag where a charity "The make a wish foundation" was spoofed with the "Make a realistic wish foundation" which involved dying kids getting lame presents such as a stick. The response to the sketch was overwhelming with the show being forced off the air for two weeks, a Staff member at… Continue

Atheist wins election and other random news

Posted on May 27, 2009 at 3:50pm 0 Comments

Just got elected at work to the occupational health and safety committee. Ok so it's not a government position but in a company with 60 odd workers I think it's good to know that my atheism didn't inhibit my chances when I went for the position.

On a somewhat more bizarre note I also brought up the issue of mandatory vaccination at work and how I was in favor of it. One response I got was that it was atheists who typically oppose such things. Go figure.

Zombie funeral

Posted on May 20, 2009 at 4:14pm 1 Comment

Although it'll probably never happen, I recently decided to plan out my ideal funeral. It's going to go something like this. Firstly it will be held at night with all the guests dressed up as zombies. I want alcohol and lively music. The casket will have a number of hidden tape recorders which will play pre-recorded messages such as "Let me out of this thing, I'm not dead". There will be an automated arm which will break out of the earth once the casket has been buried. I'm also happy for the… Continue

Homophobia in the work place.

Posted on May 13, 2009 at 5:53am 0 Comments

Today as a social experiment I decided to find out how homophobic or anti-gay my workplace is. To do this I went around asking people if they had heard about the anti-gay rights group in America known as 2M4M I explained how ironic it was that such a group would go with a name which sounds for lack of a better word gay. The response I got was typically, they shouldn't be allowed to get married, it sets a bad example or it's just wrong God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. I responded… Continue

Dollhouse and Chuck season finales **spoilers.**

Posted on May 11, 2009 at 3:33am 2 Comments

So this morning I finally caught up with the Dollhouse finale so I'll review that quickly. In a word this was nothing short of being the best episode in the series. There were plenty of plot twists and some excellent sci-fi themes explored. I particularly liked the twist with Dr Claire being a doll. That was unexpected but very logical. The two things what impressed me the most however were Alan Tudyk's (Alpha) performance who nailed the character completely and the concept of Echo confronting… Continue

Hi.
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its thousands of good friends.

Join groups when you can, like the busy discussion group “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion..... ) with its 120 discussions and numerous video films.

One discussion (over 65 posts) is called "Proud to be Atheist". There's much to be proud about because atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground and recognise the folly of superstitious god believers for the pathetic nonsense it is.
