An Obvious Observation

Recently, a co-worker gave me a set of religious CDs on the topic of sin and morals.  She is trying to convert me, and while that's never going to happen until she can prove there is a god, it gives me an excellent opportunity to check out the materials that Christians think are important in the discussion of religion.  After listening to these CDs, I walked away with one truly over-powering observation:Every shred of Christian morality are essentially Humanist concepts wrapped in the shroud of…See More

"Good for you!  I too have been an atheist for a long time and am just starting to feel the need to become an activist.  That is why I started my blog and have become active in a local atheist group.  With the political scene in the…"

"Very weird, the first part of my post was truncated. Some parents will try to tell you that "you can't reason with kids". Yes you can, though the later one starts making this a priority, the harder it gets. That said, it's…"

Becoming an Atheist Activist

Let me start by saying one thing: I've always been an Atheist.
