My god

I don't understand blind faith. Since we all evolve from simpler organisms, doesn't it make sense that God is an eventuality, not a precursor of life?

This is why I worship my friend, Evan.

Simply because I can see him, experience him, and KNOW that he is there.

And if I pray to Evan, he might actually be able to help me with my problems.

And I'm waiting for the day when we're together and someone else brings up the subject of faith and asks me, "Well, what do you believe… Continue

Religion wants to be atheist/secular....?

It seems to me that the religious people, the thinking religious people who attempt to argue for their religion, do so by convincing the unbelieving listener that he is just like them. He begins to speak of the "mercy" of his religion, he speaks of how "Moses" was concerned with mankind, or that Muhammad freed the women of Arabia.

My point is: if you really believe that Islam or Judaism is REALLY the right way, then why would you apologise for it by attempting to adjust to a more secular… Continue

Catholics Living in God's Light.

More reasons to get rid of religion



It has always been asserted that illicit sex has been going on among the religious body of the Catholic Church. Besides the known priest sexual abuse of young boys, charges of Nuns having sex with priest, priest having sex with priest and Nuns having sex with Nuns have always been put forth. Are these charges real or just allegations? Well, a former Nun tells her story, “which details illicit relationships, sexual harassment and bullying… Continue

Taboo subjects and video

I just put up a short video briefly discussing aspects of guilt and religion and sexual control and religion. You can find it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ajdwru77hnc



I am very interested in talking about some subjects that have been taboo in discussing religion. For example; How does religious infection affect sexual performance or the ability to enjoy or develop healthy sexual relations? How does religion affect marriage and interfere with relationships? Religionists are… Continue

Discovering the secularist cause: New post at Examiner.com

Here's my latest at Examiner.com, under my new title, "DC Secularism Examiner." It's a brief history of what brought me to writing about atheist activism.



A taste:



As I put my career in professional theatre temporarily aside (populated by a generally liberal and socially tolerant demographic) and toward politics, I came to realize that while my own…

Who Says Atheists Can't be Altruists?

Some might call me a "social Darwinist". Let's face it, evolution is all about adaptability and our monkey brains evolved to meet the demands of a time 50K years prior to our own. Someone wonders why we're all stressed out and on meds? It's no secret to me ... we're not evolved to meet the conditions of this time - and it's only changing faster.



So I'm pretty comfortable with those who can't hack it not being able to produce as many offspring as those who can. That's how the species… Continue

Bobby Jindal, creationist, spirit warrior and next presidential candidate? Really?

Unless GOP star and amateur spiritual warrior, Bobby Jindal, can exorcise the recession, it's doubtful he's going to lead the Republican party anywhere good. (read on...)

Convention on the Rights of the Child

This morning at work the news was on. Annoyingly on Fox News. I don't know what that woman's name is that comes on in the morning but i can't stand her ... I won't rant about her right now. Anyway she declared that the evil childrens' rights treaty which was accepted by everyone but the US and one other horrid country will keep people from teaching their kids religion, spanking, and giving time outs. These things were actually listed in text. She repeatedly said "some people in Geneva will get… Continue

WHY I BECAME A MILITANT NON-BELIEVER

There’s been much debate about trying to deprogram believers as opposed to ignoring them and letting them adore and worship any divinity they please. Live and let live, it’s a free country and what harm are they doing. In fact, religion can be a good thing because, like music, it soothes the wild beast.



Religion was fine with me most of my life. Religious people felt sorry for me, I’m losing my soul; I felt sorry for them, they’re losing much of the joy of life in anticipation of… Continue

U.N. Anti-Blasphemy Resolution



Via Atheist Media Blog



The fact that these people are pushing so hard to shut the rest of us up, makes me suspect that they know they are in the wrong. Sorry guys if you want to worship a pedophile, brain wash kids into becoming suicide bombers, and treat women like property, I will criticize you and I don't care whether or not it hurts your… Continue

Sheeple Report 1

In order to give my rants a bit of consistency, I’m starting a new series of posts called Sheeple Reports. A large part of skeptical inquiry is pointing out the blind following of numerous trends from religion to homeopathy. Sheeple Reports will give me a chance to vent my frustration in dealing with the various followers all around me. First on the agenda is an update to my previous snippet of… Continue

God doesn't answer your prayers?

That's because you don't have enough faith!



Have you ever asked, “Why didn’t God answer my prayers?” Have you ever prayed for something but then did not receive it? Have you ever wished for something to happen, but it didn’t? Have you ever wondered why you couldn’t get along with your sister, love your neighbor, save your marriage, lose the weight, get that car, or anything else you prayed for that you didn’t get…

Of course, most of the hijackers on 9-11 didn't know that they were going to die. Sadly, the Bush Admin didn't exploit this. They should have, but they had their own ideas.



So here is the video...enjoy....(okay it is dark dark humor...deal with… Continue

Life in a nation under God‌

My earliest childhood memories are when I was five or six years old, in our beautiful village just outside the city of Mahabad in western Iran. My friends and I were playing tag in our front yard. One of my friends at one moment fell on the hard ground. As he tried to get up, everything seemed as though it was a slow motion movie. My eyes were fixed on a big ball of fire that was falling from the sky. The Iranian army was bombing a valley in the southern parts of the village. Our innocent… Continue
