Is the perception that non-theism is negative correct?

Of course, the concept that theism is positive, and non-theism is negative is two edged sword. If one is convinced that a supernatural entity or entities that dwell in a supernatural world created humanity for the purpose of developing a sentient creature that can understand the creators “power and majesty” and that will worship it/them to their death for the promise of eternal life; then, of course, theism is very positive and non-theism is so negative as to deserve (in some…

Fear or rage

The idea of no creator and no one control the rain, victory or breeding is relatively new to human.

this idea is very revolutionary like the idea that earth is not center of the universe.



all our ancestor are religious in some way, they believe that there is some sort of supernatural power control everything , the sun , the death , the disease ,and they believe that some acts of human will make god(s) angry, and they don't want the supernatural power to be angry, so people… Continue

Intellectual Dishonesty And Being Certain Gods Do Not Exist

There is nothing more aggravating than being in the middle of a discussion about the parameters of what constitutes a God, and another atheist in the discussion says to you,”You are being intellectually dishonest by saying deities absolutely do not exist.…

"Justin Bieber is Gay" -- 12-Year-Old Fan

When my little friend Lilia told me of her heartbreaking shift in affections from Justin to One Direction's Harry Styles, it simply broke my heart. I had just begun to appreciate Justin. Who is this Styles guy? A name like that, you'd think he was a fashion model, but he comes off as a scruffy kid with a lot of energy. About the only thing the two have in common is tattoos. Harry does not have that fabulous Bieber chest, abs, and tattoos. Justin has more of them. I guess. Lilia, when asked…

project brother-in-law

We've been busy this year. Brother-in-law fell on his head in January and contracted brain damage..  So we went to the hospital (the rest of the family is dead or not interested) and kept contact with the staff, took decisions, shared information and did whatever was necessary. Then we went to his apartment and found that his cat was phobic about people, and the apartment was totally neglected, dirty and full of broken stuff. We found a cat-nanny who accepted the bizarre situation and tried…

Pastor hit with $200,000 in student loans

http://money.cnn.com/2014/07/28/pf/parents-student-loans/index.html

When his 27-year old daughter Lisa died suddenly of liver failure five years ago, Steve Mason was as devastated as any father would be.

He and his wife Darnelle immediately took in Lisa's three children -- ages 4, 7 and 9 at the time -- even though they knew it would be a huge struggle to support them. Steve earns…

Noah

I haven't been on here in a while lol. Right now my parents are watching Noah, and while I would like to watch it, they keep talking about all the "science" behind the "historical accuracy" of the bible story. So now I just can't enjoy the movie for what it is without being bothered about how...would stupid be the right word? It's my parents, and it feels mean to call it for what it is.

Why I am here

Hello everyone!

You may want to know why I am here. I am not really sure. I consider myself to be a former Catholic girl. I guess most of you are former Christians, Muslims, Jews etc. as well. So you will get why I am interested in meeting people I can have discussions about religion with. But that is not the only reason. I am stunned at how people reacted to me being no longer Catholic. I thought I was surrounded with tolerant, progressive and accepting people who couldn't care less…

ASMR and Personal Experiences related to Religion

There is some debate over whether ASMR, Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is just some big hoax or if people actually are experiencing something real. I feel this relates to atheism as a common defense of theists is their subjective personal religious experiences. The argument opens up the rather difficult arena of subjective and objective, of the properly basic nature of the senses, and of how to define 'real' in general.

Anyone unfamiliar with ASMR should type that…

Do We Exist?

I'm not trying to be philosophical here. 

Recently I’d been lurking in a string linked by AlterNet News on that bastion of objectivity WND faith, on which some character named Bob Unruh ran a most entertaining article titled  "Scientists: Atheists May Not Exist."

 Needless to say the ensuing string of comments was bursting at the seams with enthusiasm over this proposition.

Here's one of the first posts that caught my eye:

"No such thing as evolution or atheists,…

Individual life in Islam

Individual life is not appreciated in islam

Islam is very clear about the life, it worth nothing, because the valuable life is after death !!!



"So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory - We will bestow upon him a great reward."

Quran 4:74

"Those are the ones who have bought the life of this world [in exchange] for the Hereafter, so the punishment… Continue

Why religions did not stop slavery

Imagine that there passed an international law that illegalized the ownership of private cars, and enforce people to use only public transport.

of course this is good for our environment and to reduce pollution and reduce consume of oil energy.

But this will be very strange law, many people will complain and motor industry will protest this law.

But may be in the future there will be such a law that prohibit using private cars, maybe because people became more aware of…
