Steve Ahlquist commented on Alan Perlman's blog post New Thread: What are “Secular Humanist Politics”?
"I have to express doubt that these kind of small government free market economic and political philosophies are compatible with humanism, which includes compassion, as well as reason, as one of its core values. Reason would demonstrate that…"

David Anam commented on Steve Ahlquist's blog post Religion as Negative Feedback Loop
"Regarding the first study, the IQ gap between children who are spanked vs. children who are not seems to decrease as the child gets older. This seems to me to suggest that a child that is spanked starts out with lower IQs but catches up to other…"

Religion as Negative Feedback Loop

Welcome to Fundamentalism.Kicking around in my head are the results of four different studies, each of which is quite startling on its own, but when put together are simply staggering in their implications. The upshot is that religious fundamentalists are beating the United States into being stupid and poor.The first thing we need to look at is this report:…See More

The Discovery Institute and Human Exceptionalism

First Things, "published by The Institute on Religion and Public Life, an interreligious, nonpartisan research and education institute whose purpose is to advance a religiously informed public philosophy for the ordering of society," has come out squarely against bestiality and science fiction books that deal with such issues. Given that bestiality is against the law in…See More

Cranston, Rhode Island Prayer Banner Removal sparks Religious Meltdown

Following up on a local issue here in Rhode Island that has begun to mushroom into a full fledged First Amendment battle, we return to the issue of the prayer banner that has been ignobly displayed in Cranston West High School since 1958. I first covered the story here. In the interest of full disclosure, I am proud to report that Jessica Ahlquist, who has started a…See More

Steve Ahlquist commented on deletedsoul's blog post It's Done.
"I've been an atheist of one kind or another for thirty years but my father, who is now approaching seventy, still sends me religiously inspired emails and will never, I have come to understand, show any respect for my views. To this day there…"

Tarentola Mauritanica commented on Steve Ahlquist's blog post Sinead O'Connor: Potential Atheist Ally?
"I "know" Sinead since the start of her career. Been listening to her music and following part of her life that means. And since the early 90s she always appeared to be mentally instable. Something I still see in her when i look at her now.…"

Sinead O'Connor: Potential Atheist Ally?

As usual, Sinead O'Connor has some choice words about the Catholic church and the Vatican. Speaking about the recent canonization of Mary MacKillop, Australia's first saint:Mary MacKillop is going to become a very important figure, I'd say, because she fucking stopped a paedophile priest. She was way…See More

Tarentola Mauritanica commented on Steve Ahlquist's blog post Fundamentalists are Closing Ranks
"If the attack on a religion is seen as possible threat to all religions then all religions unite no matter how much they despise each other."

Guy Fawkes commented on Steve Ahlquist's blog post Sharia Law and the Stoning of Women
"I just watched this film... Its very, very sad. The stoning scene was pretty graphic but nothing like the real thing. I wasn't looking for it, but I ended up watching a anti-Muslim film which showed a real stoning... Of all the things I wish I…"

Steve Ahlquist commented on Tarentola Mauritanica's blog post Bigotry in Uganda: It doesn't end
"One can imagine the outrage had the paper printed pictures of 100 Christians with the words "hang them". We'd have the president involved, the Vatican exerting pressure, and American evangelicals and tea baggers screaming for war.…"

Steve Ahlquist commented on Jeffrey A. Myers's blog post Conservatism's Bankrupt and Failed Ideology Must Be Stopped
"Though pessimism about humanity is inevitable when we look at places like Uganda and the Middle East, and while it is true that conservatism is a dead end at best and potentially catastrophic at worst, I think it is important to remain optimistic,…"

Hello to writer Steve and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and devious religions have always deceived and controlled vulnerable people besides indoctrinating defenceless children;
----and how tragic and inexcusable it also is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
