How do you even reply to something like this

A short while ago on Facebook, a 'friend' posted:

"If violence, wars, murders, poverty & disease could be prayed away, don't you think it would have been gone hundreds of years ago? If everything that happens is Gods will, why get upset? Why rebuild where "God" keeps destroying? And if that wasn't God, how do you tell the difference?

No need to respond with more conditioned BS! Just something to think about and I decided to share my…

Mondo Diablo Episode 374: MRA: Misogynistic Reprobate Assholes

I don't think I have anything to add to the idea of the MRA, so I figure they can do the talking themselves. If you can't figure out what's wrong with them, well, you don't listen to this podcast anyway, so you aren't reading this right now. That means I can call you a stinky-faced poo-poo heads who eats poo and writes with it.

Apostasy and Blasphemy is my right....and not a crime!

Being an Ex-Muslim and born of Pakistan, it sure brings with itself a barrage of problems, pressures, ridicule and a lot of threats, especially if you happen to be an atheist and are fighting for your right to be an apostate or stand and oppose religious beliefs.



If you happen to be born in a country that takes Islam as the forefront for law-making, rights and the way of life to be run in that country, then you're most likely stripped away with a great deal of freedom of choice,…

Whitewashing Hell: or why belief in Hell is still not very nice

There has been some discussion about the topic of Hell over at Psychology Today recently. (I have a blog there by the way in case anyone's interested!) You might even say it's a hot topic! (Sorry.) Psychologist Nathan Heflick wrote about the psychological aspects of the subject…

I make Christians look like 'Bad Persons'

At last, I have achieved my goal!

I recently had a comment exchange on Deviant Art:

http://pjarrett.deviantart.com/  (not a safe site, as my McAfee always reminds me...but they seem to have solved some of their problems...be careful, in spite of its name "Deviant Art" they allow underaged children to post right along with adults!  If you're leary of the site...which I can't say I blame you...try my other blog at …

Mondo Diablo Episode 357: Hell House!

Mondo Diablo Episode 346: Unbelievable! Crazy Calls to the Atheist Experience

This week is an extra-long treat, with the best bad calls to the Atheist Experience, which can be viewed or listened to at http://www.atheist-experience.com/ . I recommend listening on Ustream or Blip TV live. They've got quite a following on Youtube though, and one could watch clips from several years of shows for hours on end. And I've done…

Are You a Secular Sexual?

Hre is my 25 min. talk at the convention on The Shame of Believing or Why Do We Act Like Christians? I suggest that we should rethink our sexuality as secular sexuals. Take a look and let me know how this idea feels to you.

Opening Rant

First, a rave:  I am most grateful for Atheist Nexus.  Since effectively rebirthing myself as an atheist (decades ago, I was an agnostic), I've had no place to voice opinions, reactions or thoughts, where others might share them and perhaps further stretch my brain with their reflections.  Thank you, A/N.

Now, a rant:  There is little if anything more sacred to me, in all the history and legacy of the United States of America, than the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.  The most…

'till Death do us Part

Christianity has an awesome propaganda machine that regularly pumps out information, misinformation and down right lies, which the media regularly promotes as gospel rather than investing a little critical thought and just a smidgeon of skepticism (default mode for real journalists).



A good example of poor journalism, sloppy work and plain laziness comes in a story picked up by the national media from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. As a research organization, Pew's… Continue

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…

Mondo Diablo Episode 291: Fundie Fantasy





To start the New Year off right, I had to start it with fstdt.com . Fundies say the Darndest Things. This episode is all about Teh Gays, because DADT was FINALLY repealed, and the fundies are all OVER that shit. This has implications. Fundies have traditionally been pro-military: My Country: Love it or Leave It. So, maybe they'll leave, or maybe they'll stop supporting the military, or maybe, JUST MAYBE,… Continue

So, you wan't a war on Christmas...

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)

 

In the United States there is a widespread idea that there is an ongoing "war on Christmas" waged by atheists and in general, people who prefer a secular government in which every person has the same rights. As usual, this idea is proposed by the whiny religious right (mainly conservative Christians).



Sometimes they will…

Chapter One; LIVING IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD part two

Somewhere between my curious nature and my desire to interact with my environment, I looked critically at the world. So as a child, when my family went to church, I really had no idea what it was about. I liked the children sermons given at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. It was fun to go in front of the sanctuary and sit with the other kids beside the pastor, since he seemed to be the reason everyone was there.…

WikiLeaks reveals Vatican's lack of willingness to cooperate with sex abuse investigations

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)

Seriously, that the Vatican wouldn’t want to cooperate with investigations regarding sex abuse is no news. But the Wikileaks cables are one of the most concrete pieces of evidence (perhaps the most concrete) that we have about the Vatican’s hypocrisy and how unwilling Ratzinger and his minions are to…

Chapter Eight; BELIEVE WHAT? part thirty-three





Growing fast and coming in third world wide is the section of non-adherents or unbelievers. This of course would be the most diverse group of all. I would also argue the only naturally occurring group that a person is able to reach without any outside influence. That is to say that being a unbeliever takes no more effort than just looking at how the world operates and rejecting what ever the dominate system of belief is.

As of this time, I am not aware of what could… Continue

"God In Chaos" Chapter Eight; HUMANIST POINT OF VIEW part thirty



But as I have said before, since non-adherents do not have a dogma we really have no need to meet together or organize. But I have a feeling

that will change as we fight through the courts to return our nation to

the secular nation that it was founded as. People seem to be tiring of

the rules and control of dogma and want to be good peaceful people

living with one another. Helping out where we can and staying out of the

way when we…
