Homophobia, Sexual Insecurity, Religion, Cliches

Any discussion about sexuality is complicated by messy overlapping categories.  Are there people who reject all homosexuality only out of religious faith?  Certainly.  Are some of them sexually uptight?  Absolutely.  However, it can equally be said that some atheists are perverts who, out of desperation or dogmatism, will have any sort of sex with anything, and have a knee-jerk sympathy for any sort of perversion. 

The marriage debate is relatively unimportant except as a distraction…

National Day of Reason, May 3 2012

I'll be attending the NDOR events in Raleigh, NC with some of my friends from our local Coalition of Reason group in the Piedmont Triad, NC. Greta Christina, Dan Barker, Todd Stiefel and more will be there.



For any reading this who feel that they are the "only non-believer I know", they should check to see what events will be taking place in their home towns, or…

The Poetry of My Reality

In On the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin said: “There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."  That, to me, is such an apt view of what reality is. Lots of people feel it is a…

Female Atheism

Before I start here, let me say that I know this sounds a bit insensitive to the LGBTQ community, but it is not intended as such.  I am in no way attempting to diminish the contributions to our species by homosexuals in our branch of the Tree of Life, but for simplicity's sake, I'm sticking with the very basic, primitive idea of a family unit here.  Please forgive me if it offends...

  It is statistically proven that there are far fewer female atheists…

The Necessity of Atheism. By Percy Bysshe Shelley. From the 1880 edition of The Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley in Verse and Prose, edited by H. Buxton Forman

A CLOSE examination of the validity of the proofs adduced to support any proposition, has ever been allowed to be the only sure way of attaining truth, upon the advantages of which it is unnecessary to descant; our knowledge of the existence of a Deity is a subject of such importance, that it cannot be too minutely investigated; in consequence of this conviction, we proceed briefly and impartially to examine the proofs which have…

The Parable of the Disc Jockey

Non-believers need parables too...here's one I posted on my blog http://richardcahill.net a few months ago.



A man had owned a seaside bar in a harbor town for many years. Most of those years had been prosperous; his bar's deck was the widest and his beer was the coldest and his waitresses the most nubile of any bar in the town. Tourists and locals alike flocked to his club to drink and…

Becoming an Atheist Activist

Let me start by saying one thing: I've always been an Atheist. I was born an Atheist (as everyone did) and my parents Catholicism just never took with me.  In the third grade, I came across a definition of Atheism in the dictionary at my parochial grade school and it changed my life forever (this story also includes my friend Bill and I discovering the definition of "Fart" in the same dictionary).  For the first time I had a title for what I felt beyond simply "Different."  Throughout my…

National Atheist Party Invites Westboro to Reason Rally

The odds are high that the Westboro Baptist Church is likely to attend the Reason Rally, the largest Secular event in history, and the National Atheist Party would like to formally invite them to stop by their booth…

Where Are You?

In the US, when people mention the word Libertarian, I think of Ayn Rand, …and have to fight a gag response. This to me is usually a neo-liberal/right wing/anarcho-capitalist simplification.

 

But, this is all relative, the word libertarian (small "L") meant an entirely different thing to my father, who also equated it with a strong sense of socially responsible governance as a means to achieve a greater good. Conservatives like to tout their "fiscally conservative" positions,…

The National Atheist Party Is Born!

Before I start on my rant, I do want to say that I admire and respect those who took the initiative to take on such a major venture that is, in my opinion, a historic turning point.

 

It is a necessary and important step.

 

Kudos to them, even if I don’t agree with the name of the party.…

Is This Really Necessary?

God Fearing Guy
IN GOD WE TRUST - This religious display is quite appropriate and didn't need an act of Congress to do.

Dating when you're over 40, divorced, atheist, angry at religion, with baggage

I'm looking for some input here.

 

As you can tell from previous posts, over the last year I've been divorcing my increasingly fundamentalist wife who was homeschooling my two children and unintentionally sabotaging their chances at a normal childhood/adulthood. I've been married for 17+ years, since my (very) early 20s. It wasn't a great marriage. It was ok. At first. Theologically neither of us were very passionate in the beginning. As I think on my past more I realize I…

A Hell of a Way to Rally People to Your Cause

 

Theist Board

 

One man’s immorality is another man’s religion, even if the immorality of that religion is pointed out by atheists. It’s common for religious adherents to sometimes act immorally – and sometimes hypocritical – despite what their religions supposedly teach. The same is true for atheists and what they believe. People…

Tax Exemptions: The Business of Religion

Disclaimer: The Omnipotent Poobah, aka Jack Koeneman, is a former Christian turned atheist. He has nothing against most theists and respects their beliefs – up to the point where they step on his.



I have dozens of theist friends. Our discussions are generally polite and lean toward the relative merits of atheist and theist beliefs, not mundane secular topics like religious tax breaks. But with the hew and cry over…
