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…

Pastor Mike is a Back Seat Driver

Disclaimer: I'm a former Christian who is now an atheist. I have nothing against most theists and respect their beliefs - up to the point where they step on mine. However, even in my Christian days I would've been appalled by the hubris of this plan.

Bash atheist I'm overjoyed so many religious people are so protective of my soul that they insist upon preaching to me at every…

Tunnel Vision is 20/20

When it comes to morals it seems that Christians never get above the belt-buckle unless it is to peer behind a brassiere. Genes for sexual obsession passed down from the Catholic Church evidently have not mutated over the centuries as Christian leaders remain overly concerned with who's doing who, how they are doing it and if there are any naked people or pictures anywhere near.

To be sure there is a need for watchdog organizations and laws keeping dangerous sexual predators, perverts…

Is the Internet Killing Christianity?

A fellow "heathen" forwarded this article to me from a Christian web site. It seems there are concerns among the religious that the internet is allowing non-theist people to connect, spreading critical thinking and skepticism that could be eroding away at the growth of Christianity among the younger members of our society (as if that was a bad thing ;-)). …

A Christian is a Christian is a Christian

When it comes to things Christian, religious bias runs through nearly every major poll conducted in the United States, whether it comes from Gallup, PEW or the Barna Research Group, the numbers are often misleading, confusing or just plain wrong!

 

Surveys regarding religious issues are not broken out by faith groups such as Catholics, Methodists or Mormons, instead it is done by subdivisions such as born-again, non-born-again, evangelical, fundamentalist and other…

Hubris and Certainty

“I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of.”  ~Clarence S. Darrow

 

“Dogmatism and skepticism are both, in a sense, absolute philosophies; one is certain of knowing, the other of not knowing. What philosophy should dissipate is certainty, whether of knowledge or ignorance.”  ~Bertrand Russell

 

“The educated in [the critical habit of thought] . . . are slow to believe.  They can hold things as possible or probable in all degrees,…

How A Christian Lost His Faith

I thought it only appropriate for my first Atheist Nexus blog to be a story of how I lost my faith. Let it be a lesson on how to reason with the unreasonable. First a little background on where I came from.



I was raised in a Christian fundamentalist home. My uncle is a Petroleum Engineer which he thinks… Continue

A Majority of Christians Know Little About Their Religion

My alternate title for this piece was "You Don't Know Jack," but it would be such a reach, so, I said it plainly. Occasionally, a Christian or two chooses to debate me about the Bible and of course I leave them asking themselves why they chose me to debate. It is not that I am a great debater, rather, it is that they know so little about the Bible. As long as we speak of the Bible itself as far as content, they manage to hang in until the discrepancies, autocratic behaviors, sexism…

Testimony

You know, I guess you can say that I came to my self-belief, and my opinion about religion later in life.  Like many things.  Though I reason that kind of thing would be like a discussion of spilled milk.  Truly the only thing one can affect is now, this very moment.  Not the last moment, nor the next moment.  This moment.

 

My belief in self, as well as my assessment about Christian mythology has been an evolutionary process.  This section is my…

Married Women Abort for Secret Desire to Make Lesbians Equal



As a former Virginian, I’m all too aware of the asshatery that is Pat Robertson. I once lived a short distance from his colonial palace cum religious law school and occasionally saw some of his on-air “journalists” at the local Farm Fresh. I…

More Infighting Among Christian Sects

Pastor Rob Bell, one of the new rising rock stars of Christianity, has stirred up a hornets’ nest with his book Love Wins. In today’s article by Cathy Lynn Grossman of USA TODAY, Bell exposes the new kinder, gentler Christianity that has emerged as a reaction to the hellfire and brimstone alternative offered by most evangelical writers. In his book, he turns conventional Christian theology on its…
