I'm a little tired of God getting all the credit.

This is just a rant.  But it was brought into the front of my mind by something I saw recently.  It was "Letters to Santa" at the post office, and they were reading letters of some of those in need. It was heart wrenching, and one story in particular stuck in my mind.  It was a man, former military, unemployed, and struggling to feed his kids.  He talked about how he was scrapping for any small job he could take to make a little money, and then he thanked God for keeping his children…

Don’t Do Unto Others As They May Decide to Do Unto You

Guns and Bibles

GUNS AND BIBLES - Ameican Christians like to howl about their persecution, but it's hard to feel their pain. Having control over almost all political posts, have unlimited money and influence, and can demonize and run rough-shod…

MY TEAM COMES TO PLAY part thirty-six



Of course I would insist that any course on world religion or religion

in general have a section on atheists. It is clear that the atheist

community has something to say about a great many number of subjects.

Everything from climate change to fair…

Chapter Eight; THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD part thirty-two





Without a doubt Christianity is the largest team in the world. God has so blessed this religion that it can now be represented by hundreds of dogmatic denominations. Spanning from The Russian Orthodox Church to Shakers to Jehovah Witness to Episcopal to Westboro Baptist Church and all the variation in between. According to the…

Pascal's Wager 2 - Xeno's Wager

Xeno's wager






There is a well-known thought problem called X(z)eno's Paradox, or the Dichotomy Paradox. The essential base of Xeno's dichotomy is what I allude to, while the basic conclusions and premises behind the argument I push aside as they are not relevant.


The dichotomy is this, to travel any…

Heaven

I've written a piece at Life Without a Net about heaven. For any of you folks who enjoy discussions with Christians, you might find this a helpful tool for re-framing and thinking critically about the concept of heaven and hell. Here's an excerpt:

Why I am not Christian

For these reasons: - Thanks to the Bible: I was once a devout Catholic but regular Bible reading saved me. Why? Because I so took notice contradictions in the Bible and found that the Christian… Continue

This is America!

I don't know the ngenral opinion on the ground zero "mosque" here because I haven't been as active as I should be but I know at least 1 (thunderfoo at youtube) atheist has used the argument.



This is not Saudi Arabia this is America! The A in USA doesn't mean Arabia, it means America!

What am I talking about? Among the pathetic arguments against the "mosque" (its a cultural center you ignoramuses) the bigoted idiots spout out is "they don't allow churches in… Continue

On the Immorality of Christianity



The languid success of logic and facts to dislodge believers from their mistaken beliefs, calls for a new course in the claim for morality’s mantle; religion fails humanity on ethics.





There appears to be no amount of reason or facts that will extricate believers from their cognitive biases, or the nucleus of their intractable, mistaken, and teleological beliefs. Non-theists, in my humble, yet scholarly opinion, need… Continue

Pastors pray for the only Ghanaian Hydroelectric Dam (Akosombo Dam)

Akosombo Dam, The only Hydroelectric Dam in Ghana prayed for by group of pastors so rains come down or be restored to supply the country's energy. They believe its the devil stopping the rains. so wont look for any solutions or renewable sources of energy, they get an excuse like always its the devil and satan. Ignorance once again.



Why do we as a people sit down, watch for a Dam like this to run out of water without looking at…

Why Religion and God are Unnecessary in the Modern World

I was originally going to publish this at Associated Content but they don't give up front payments for opinion articles so I published it there under a non-exclusive license and will publish it else where including my blog.



Introduction

Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue

It’s not persecution if it’s against Devil Worshippers

From Not My God







Not My God focuses on persecution and hatred of atheists. I’m not saying that I equate anti-atheism rhetoric with segregated bathrooms under Jim Crow laws or genocides. What I am trying to say is that many people in the US hate atheists, all else being equal. I’ve heard time and time again of people saying that they didn’t believe in God– without sarcasm, without “and neither should you,”… Continue

Atheists who swing to the right

From Not My God







I don’t often hear from atheists who are politically/socially conservative. I know they’re out there, albeit probably much fewer than their more liberal counterparts. I’ve heard at least one atheist say that he’s a truck driver, voted for Bush twice, etc., and no one would guess that he’s an atheist. True, I wouldn’t have.



I’m a liberal myself, although it does disconcert me to a… Continue

Imagine No Religion

I know that a lot of religious people think that most atheists are angry, but the truth is we know that this is our one and only life so most try to live it the best we can. Life is not a dress rehearsal for the big show. Atheists haven't caused as much harm as religious people by a long shot. No wars were ever started in the name of atheism, but they have in the name of god (any god). I have heard people say that Stalin and Hitler were atheists, but if you look at any of their writings,… Continue

Chaplaincy in Australia's State Schools...

In an emotional display, Kevin Rudd PM told the story of a couple that he knew personally, who died tragically whilst doing a good deed, to the Australian Christian Lobby’s annual conference in Canberra. Allan Taylor, the husband, was a school chaplain. Rudd intends to give $42.8mil in funding to the National School Chaplaincy program which was due to end late 2010.



Rudd used personal testimonies of Taylor, by friends, students, teachers, and colleagues as evidence of the importance… Continue
