Liberal/Conservative Atheists?

I have found my boyfriend and I to be somewhat of outcast amongst outcast in the nontheist community. Most atheist we know are very liberal in their view of the world while I myself consider myself in most respects to be conservative. I am pro-choice and I believe in gay rights 110% but thats pretty much where it ends. I'm a good old southern girl who likes her BBQ and gun rights. I have never felt so free as when I shrugged of the chains of the Death Cult of christianity so its hard for me to… Continue

El rito de la "Envestidura del Compadre"

Post in spanish; translation will come later.



Quiuuubole compadre!!!



El bautismo religioso (acaso hay otro tipo?) en general se me hace ridículo, pero por otro lado el concepto del 'compadrazgo' me agrada. Si de mi' dependiera (o cuando de mi dependa), yo cambiaría la tradición del bautismo por algo que tentativamente llamaré "Envestidura del Compadre".



Mientras el bautizo para mi' es ridículo porque soy escéptico-agnóstico-ateo y no profeso ninguna… Continue

Delusional People Should NOT be in Positions of Power

Image and video hosting by TinyPic



In most parts of our lives we would not seek out and employ delusional people to do tasks for us. If we were told that our doctors believed that magic mushroom people were able to heal us and that this belief was intrinsic to their world view, I think most of us would seek a new doctor. If we were told that the person educating our children would go into a closet and talk to the magical bunny of education for guidance and… Continue

Celebrity Atheists

It was suggested to me to make this list into a blog, or a group. Well I've submitted for a group to be created and I'm blogging this.

Thanks to the "net" we're finding that as "atheists" we're not alone.

No long is it a chance meeting to find one like us.

So when those say that the number of atheists are growing, I tend to take a step and try to see the whole picture.

While the number may be growing I think that with such mediums as the internet that people are being more… Continue

Need a slogan to stop special priviledges for churches

Here in Victoria, Australia we have religious groups trying to circumvent our anti-discrimination laws to block the employment of homosexuals and single mothers. There have been some press on the Roman Catholic church's attempt to recruit disaffected Anglicans (read misogynist, homophobic and bigoted) to an new accepting home - the Roman Catholic Church. As one commentator pointed out there would be an uproar if any secular organisation did the same thing.



Any suggestions for… Continue

Curious as to whether anyone on this site has read either of James Lovelock's last two books?

Female Flying Spaghetti Monster



A female FSM design I created with distinguishing female characteristics such as noodly appendage eyelashes and tender meatball cheeks. The melancholic expression is up to the viewer to imagine its meaning. I thought it was a trait that would be unique and unusual, up for debate, something different then what one would expect from the common stereotypical deity.…

There are lots of so-called proofs/disproofs of god. But is your disbelief based on reason or at a deeper emotional level?

I was raised in a non-believing family, so god never really made sense to me. Even though the rational arguments either way are intellectually interesting, I'm convinced they have little to do with people believing or disbelieving in god. Or, at least, I can't see that rational arguments alone would convert someone. Is that so?
