I'm new here, and I am drawn to this site in a big way.
It was an idea I had long ago, but never got around to doing.
So glad someone was able to follow through on their plan, because it is a great idea.
Anywho, I'm Scott, I've been an Atheist for a few years now, was Agnostic a few months before, and a Christian the other part of my life.
I'm 16, which is a big excuse people make for my Atheism, claiming that I'm just rebeling.
That and that I "don't want to live by… Continue

Maybe I'm doing this just to see how I like it? Maybe because I've fallen madly in love with writing and wish to waltz with it to the ends of this spheroid object we call Earth? But why here? If I want to express myself, well, that's what one of the two blogs I write for is for...
I think the main reason though is because I'm bored and I don't… Continue

Like most decent and reasonable people, I’m repulsed and frightened by what are known as “fundies”. That is, religious fundamentalists of any sort, usually hardcore Christians. They frequently spew hatred toward women and homosexuals, call for making the United States a theocracy, go on long religious and conspiracy-theory rants, deny evolution despite all the overwhelming evidence, and show a general disdain for reality. But the thing I hate most about them is their complete and utter lack of… Continue

I am a fairly active blogger, but I already host my blog in two different places.
I suppose I will use the space here to announce new posts and provide links.
My website url is www.fundamentallyflawed.com
I also post the blogs on my Myspace page, which can be found at www.myspace.com/labanzab
Please feel free to read and comment, but be… Continue

People believe in too many things. They can't answer their open questions, their doubts, and the easiest path is to believe.
There is no reason to believe a certain past or history. You were not there.
There is no reason to believe a teachings of a certain person. One can't be always right or good.
There is no reason to believe a cause for an event. They are just words, mere mathematics.
There is no reason to believe money. It is just a piece of paper.
There is no… Continue

I've been living in the Hampton Roads Area for a while, but it has been a bit of a disappointment that some of the other atheists I meet only want to talk about religion. I had hoped to meed people with broad interests who could get to know each other without the question of "where's your church home?" coming up. I have a vast range of interests, including sailing, foreign language (French, Spanish, German, some Arabic and Portuguese), history, music of all types, and on and on. I DON'T want to… Continue

A conversation between my aunt and my grandmother went like this last Sunday morning upon the appearance of an article in the paper about non-religious summer camps;
G-ma (with shock); "Non-religious summer camps?!"
Aunt (derisively); "I bet they're teaching them that new-age crap"
It's so hard not to speak up in situations like this where people are blatantly and unapologetically bigoted. And that really is the problem. Many people in my… Continue

The philosophical zombie argument for dualism has a few variations that I found, and, in essence, argues that a human, that is materially or behaviorally indistinguishable from normal, but has no subjective experience, is conceivable and metaphysically possible: continue...

I was thinking about something that happened in my AP US History class, a little more than a year ago. We had been talking about the Scopes trial, and the student teacher took an informal poll of the class, on whether creationism, evolution, or both should be taught in high school biology classes...continue

Try to ignore the mocking, snide tone of the following:
A month-long project to raise funds for an atheist advert to go on the side of a London bus has been derailed: not by an act of God but through a lack of pledges.
The gambit began in June when Ariane Sherine, writing for the Guardian's Comment is Free website, expressed her consternation at the prevalence of God-bothering ads for JesusSaid.org splurged across double deckers. Inspired by this, blogger Jon Worth set… Continue

We lost another. First the Texas Supreme Court rules that it's perfectly legal for believers to physically abuse and otherwise manhandle themselves and others as an expression of their religious beliefs. Now, a federal judge in La Jolla has ruled to keep a 43 foot tall concrete cross adorning a hilltop city park as a war memorial. Here's the reason he gives:

The relentless wrath of revenge revolves a rage remarkably reasonless.
Each side tied to stride inside an eye for an eye however unjustified.
Lies disguise this senseless mess, an infinite regress, obsessed to penalize.
Victims vandalize and violate virtues guide when they too, victimize.
The prize? Everyone dies.

When I was a very young child in rural Texas, a strange annual event would happen each summer during the hottest time of the year. A large white tent would be set up in a park near my grandparent’s church, and lots of little metal chairs would be set up around a small raised platform with a microphone. For several nights in a row my grandparents would take me to this event they called a “tent revival” and we would listen to a rather portly sweaty man tell us colorful stories from the New… Continue

The godtards are fond of claiming that nonheterosexuals adopting children is bad for the kids.
As bad as this

Assailed by boredom I, perhaps incautiously, decided to have a look at some creationist websites to have a laugh. I do it from time to time, to catch up with the new silly arguments they manage to come up with - if they even do. This is a little something I found on www.creationism.org
and I thought I'd share with the world. Also, it was obviously

So, as you may recall, I created a 12 step program
for people recovering from organized religion.
Well, I found out that believersanonymous.com
