Satya Sai of Puttaparthi is undoubtedly the most publicized and the biggest supernaturally powerful (?) saint of present day India. Among his devotees are eminent people and that enhances his popularity as a ‘true Godman’.

It is easy to find all answers we want in the Bible, no matter earthquake,tsunami,or nuclear crisis which happened on 11th,march,Japan, also we could know everything which would be happened in the world, because the Bible tells us it is not safe in the world.
Yes, remember the world is not safe always and try to understand what will occurr or be ready to accept all tragedies, do not try to avoid it .
But why not give the hints to human beings to predicat it ?…Continue
If you were not at the American Atheist convention, you missed the best convention of the year, maybe the decade. Best one I have been to in terms of content and energy to say nothing of the excitement around the announcements and developments in the community. At 800 or more people, it was easily the best attended. With what is going on in the community, it is going to get a lot harder for the theocrats to ignore us. Hope you will all consider attending the Reason Rally in Washington, DC…Continue

I’ve always been one to let curiosity get the best of me. On the playground as a child, I refused to use the space as it was intended the way other children did. I played on the roof, I played on the outside of the walls, I climbed up the support beams. I wasn’t inclined to be restricted by the ‘right’ way to interact with the space set out for me. This trend of individualism marked many important decisions in my life, from being an exchange student…Continue

I’ve recently read The Moral Landscape by Sam Harris. I found it quite inspiring and empowering for us atheists to have a same in moral matters of the world.
I especially like his idea of a moral elite advisory group that gives moral direction to the world. I think this a great and beneficial idea.
I like also the idea of ‘well-being’ being the basis for our moral code.
I can see also how evolution can select for different moral codes due to…Continue

Dear friends at Strong Atheists, I have no idea where or how this will be posted, but if any of you do end up reading it then please note that I am still looking for some critical feedback to an essay that I think has substantial potential for advancing our agenda. I will post the abstract and URL below. Any and all comments gratefully received.
This essay is a direct attack on the rational legitimacy of our concept…Continue
Very interesting talks, if not exactly hot off the press. The first one especially could be useful for people working in outreach or capacity building, such as trying to extract a little more money for conservation, or getting more people on your state's organ donors list...Dan Ariely on human decision-making:…Continue

Today is Easter Sunday. It is the Christian high holy day that has been set aside to celebrate the resurrection of their god-born savior, a tenet which is central to their faith. If there were no resurrection, the human sacrifice known as the crucifixion would be the end of a failed mission. The cycle of the death…Continue

I have to admit, since I have returned to atheism the benefits have been seemingly lacking. My first spill into atheism gave my anxiety about Hell a big break. As a child I constantly worried if I was "really saved" or if I somehow lost my salvation. When I was "borned again" at the age of 16 I did not completely resume my fear of Hell because I believed that as long as I felt a personal connection to God that I was still safe to assume I was saved. Now I am an atheist again, and I often…Continue
