Does God Exist? Let's take the design view.

Someone asked on my local forum, "Does God exist and if so, where is the proof? This was my response. View the thread here.



One only has to look at all the beautiful plants and trees to know that this couldn't have just happened. It needed intelligent design. What about an eye? How could that have just appeared? If a tornado hit a car breakers, it wouldn't leave an 'E Type' in its wake.…

Jesus is letting down his flock.

If someone was brought up in a controlled environment where information was filtered and they were given zero information about god, how would their belief/value system evolve?



Does god have a way of communicating with people or has he devolved the spiritual continuence on the parents of the child to bring said child up in said faith? Isn't that a little lazy of him?



I wonder how many children who are brought up in faith A, sudenly denounce it and adopt faith B? The lack of… Continue

I think those billboards best represent where freethought society is coming from.
Ingersoll was right along with O'Hare. And now the modern day freethinkers are here to stay, in the USA it would not work any other way.

Take care folks!

Sense of Humour!

Islam, Judaism and Christianity - are maybe NOT proof that God exists, but certainly suggest that if he does he has a WICKED sense of humour! :-)



Earlier this week I, an innocent atheist of very long standing joined the Nexus community. In a fit of exuberance I posted something I thought funny, on what I thought was my blog.(i.e. here )which being 'my' blog i fondly imagined was supposed to represent what I was thinking or feeling - and sometimes I think and feel whole series of… Continue

Sure, you call yourself an Atheist, buuuut....

Most of us know Christopher Hitchens, but many may not know that he has a brother who is the polar opposite (http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/06/18/atheist-christian-paths-chr...) Now this I can relate to! My brother moved down to… Continue

Ha! Privacy!!!

My sis has been living with me for the last couple of months. It was hard to get some privacy, when she was jobless and always home. She just took a trip to Florida with her boyfriend, good for her, we were both pulling each other's hair with petty arguments. I decided since I had all this vacation time, why not use it?


Privacy is truly underrated, when I was alone, I took it for granted. I still had hobbies and had fun, but having those few minutes alone, without work,…

15 things you should know about debating.

1. You can't usually "win" a debate, the losing party usually scatter

when they've had enough.



2. Debating with your non-debating friends is like playing paintball

with inexperienced people. It's too easy, and if they're irrational,

immature and/or illogical they won't drop their belief or disbelief that

was wrong, they'll hate you for pointing it out and calling on it.



3. Personal attacks are commonplace. It only happens when the losing

party has… Continue

Bus Advertizements

I'm feeling a lot better and back at my sacrilegious iconoclasm—my blog.



Since joining A/N and learning more about history and science, the more militant I become. The U.S. is heading toward theocracy as voters become more and more disenchanted with the democrats and the president. Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee are licking their crops.



So let's start fighting back by following the example of Richard Dawkins et.al and put unflattering anti-religious slogans on…

Religion: The method of keeping social order at a time when the supernatural was strongly believed in.

The need to control the "masses" with the invention of all too human Gods who punish those that do not conform to what the religious leaders have chosen to decree as correct thinking and behavior.


I believe that the whole of human knowledge has reached a point where religion is no longer needed. I believe that every single person in the world needs to be educated with the basic principles of science. The history of science and before need also be taught in the context of…

Who’s Easier to De-convert: Moderates or Fundamentalists?

Last week, I got into an interesting conversation with a fellow atheist about de-converting Christians. My new atheist friend expressed the opinion that he thought moderate Christians were easier to de-convert and I expressed the opinion that I thought fundamentalists were easier to de-convert.



I am not actually sure that either of us could prove our position, but I do think we each had some interesting arguments to draw on. His main argument was that moderates were already more… Continue

The fragility of god-derived self-esteem

During a recent forum exchange a participant suggested that a True ™ Christian would argue that perfect self- esteem is available to all who believe in the omniscient Christian God. If you truly understand God’s view of you, you then have the best esteem of yourself possible.



This is an insidiously evil viewpoint. It leaves the responsibility for fathoming the will and nature of god entirely up to the hapless Believer. The divinity is absolved of all responsibility for clarifying… Continue

I simply did not know where to post this, and i don't know if you've seen it before.

Having been brought up by Catholics i find the similarities between the behaviour patterns in all three Abrahamic faiths seriously, seriously disturbing. I'm just going to put up a link i found in Jihad Watch from 2006 not knowing if it's old news. Even so as the goatherders begin to force sharia law upon this country it is perhaps even more relative today. Incisive, scholarly and a very thought provoking discussion.… Continue

The Sociability of Gaming

I have a couple of questions about the social gaming habits of my fellow atheists. (I'll post my own habits after the questions.)



(1) What games, if any do you play online?

(2) What sort of organizations are you involved with in the game(s) you play online? (Clan, Guild, whatever)

(3) How does the social interactions you have while playing affect your gaming experience?

(4) What would you think about Atheist, or Atheism, -centric gaming groups in game? (Clans, Guilds,… Continue

Finally Coming Out - on Facebook?

This past New Year's, I made a resolution to come out as an Atheist to my Fundamental Christian parents.



Easier said than done.



We've always been a somewhat non-confrontational, passive aggressive family. The "Big Conversations" often never happen, and when they do, it is usually after years of painful silence.



I am even more non-confrontational than my parents. I would rather chew broken glass in most situations than be faced with anger, tears or family… Continue
