Is God Lying or Making a Mistake?

As most of you probably already know, the bible contains a lot of contradictions and inconsistencies. A favorite of mine occurs right in Genesis in chapter 2 when God tells Adam and Eve not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.



It's a great way to start of the bible... with a supposed omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent being either lying to Adam or making an error. Go figure.



For the details of my take on it, go to… Continue

Edwin Kagin endorsement

I am very happy to report that Edwin Kagin, National Legal Director at the American Atheist Association has written a strong endorsement for my book. Here is his quote:



"I have found The God Virus to be a most readable and important piece of work. I can happily recommend it to potential readers, particularly to those who are not overly burdened with too much formal education in the arcane aspects of theology and philosophy. Your book is, to me at least, an everyman’s explanation of… Continue

I, The Almighty Lord God, HATE FAGS! I always have. Their constant faggotronics piss Me off something good.



Fags are all a bunch of effeminate cocksucker assholes! They should all totally get jumped and get the snot knocked out of their stupid fag faces.



I HATE FAGS SO MUCH! But you’ve… Continue

Atheists Don't Believe in God

You know it: I know it, but why don't they know it?  It's pretty obvious that atheists don't believe in God, but for some reason, a fair number of people seem to think atheists believe in God but just choose not to worship God.  While some people who may believe in God may choose not to worship it doesn't make them atheists. 

 

Because I kept bumping into this weird idea that atheists believe in God but have…

#55 Being Kept Out of Schools

Prepare thyself, he who reads this, to tremble and quake before the Incredible Word of God, as written by THE LORD HIMSELF!

Today I would like to talk about something that makes Me extremely furious – the fact that I am banned from public schools in the USA.



I take this as an insult. In fact, it is as if America has spit in My Holy Face and kicked Me in My Divine Balls. I punish America every day for this blasphemous… Continue

Religion in Sports

If only one side can win, and God is the one who chooses the winner, why play at all?



Sports. A big part of our society. Especially in school. Weather it is Grade School, or Junior High , High School, College or Professional Sports.

Now, before the sporting event, a lot of the teams or individual players pray or have a group prayer. There have been some court cases on this matter dealing with schools. Well that’s not what… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt14

The 14th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Creation is evident”

By:Aron Ra



In May of 2007, former child actor, Kirk Cameron and fellow advocate of idiocy, Ray Comfort, promised to scientifically prove the existence of God on national television,



“100% absolutely –without the use of faith”.



Of course that didn’t happen. Religious beliefs –as everyone knows- are assumed on faith in lieu of proof and regardless of evidence. Cameron and… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt13

The 13th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Evolution is a fraud!”

By: Aron Ra



Ernst Haeckel was a pioneer zoologist and taxonomist whose numerous contributions to biology go largely unnoticed compared to a couple rather odd errors. First, he proposed that “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny", suggesting that embryonic development reflects the organism’s evolutionary ancestry. To illustrate this, he produced about a hundred drawings of embryos at various stages.… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt11

The 11th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Macroevolution has never been observed.”

By: Aron Ra



You share more traits in common with your siblings than you do with your cousins due to the recent ancestors you share with them, your parents. Deeper down, you share more in common with those in your extended family than you do with neighbors and classmates, etc., people you don’t recognize as part of your biological family. But you must realize that on some level… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt10

The 10th falsehood of creationism; “The evolutionary ‘tree of life’ is nowhere implied neither in the fossil record, nor in any aspect of biology.”

By: Aron Ra



Creationists often complain that science supposedly says there was only one universal ancestor of all livings and that along the way, we evolved both into, and then from, bacteria. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. 21st century revelations in genomic research now imply that the origins of evolution come… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 9

The 9th falsehood of Creationism:“No transitional species have ever been found.”

By: Aron Ra



When Charles Darwin published his landmark observations in 1859, he lamented that the fossil record was still quite poor at that time. It was only in the last century or so earlier that anyone had even proposed the possibility that a single species could completely die out, and the first dinosaur wasn’t discovered until Darwin was a boy. Fossils were known by previous… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 8

The 8th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Mutations are rare, harmful decreases in genetic information.”

By: Aron Ra



"Mutations are genetic disorders that occur in the DNA in a random and unconscious manner.

Like all accidents, they cause harm and destruction.



...The changes affected by mutations can only be like those experienced by people in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl; that is death, disabled, and the freaks of… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 7

The 7th foundational falsehood of Creationism: “Evolution is random.”

By:Aron Ra



“Do you believe in fate, Neo?”

“No.”

“Why not?”

“Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.”



Some say it is a contradiction to believe both in prophesy and simultaneously in free will –for they can’t really co-exist. Because if anything a time traveler does in the past might dramatically alter the present, then anything done in the… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 6

The 6th falsehood of Creationism: “Evolution-ism” (Part II) “Evolution must explain the origin of life, the universe, and everything.”

By: Aron Ra



It is fair to say that none of the people who deny evolution exhibit any understanding of what it is. But it's not always their fault because many of the people promoting evolution don’t know what it is either. Hollywood producers certainly don’t!



“Are they the next link in the evolutionary chain?

Or… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 2

The 2nd foundational falsehood of creationism: Scriptures are the “Word of God”

By: Aron Ra



The 2nd foundational falsehood of creationism is the belief that sacred scriptures were written by a god rather than by the actual human authors. When believers argue over any of the many things which contradict their religion, they often challenge us to decide whom we are going to believe? The alleged “word” of God? Or that of Men? As if human inquiry had no chance against… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 1

The 1st Falsehood of creationism: “evolution = atheism"

By: Aron Ra



The U.S. population seems pretty evenly divided over whether the human species is biologically related to other animals or whether we were “specially-created” as part of a flurry of miracles. Even our collective politicians -seemingly all of them- are wrapped up in this controversy. Yet it is hard to find even one of them who know what it is about. Why is it that there is such concern in so many… Continue

Why the Christian God is Impossible - A close look at the logic and rationale

Introduction



Christians consider the existence of their God to be an obvious truth. This assumption is false, not only because evidence for the existence of this presumably ubiquitous yet invisible God is lacking, but because the very nature Christians attribute to this God is self-contradictory.



Proving a universal negative



Many Christians, as well as atheists, claim that it is impossible to prove a universal negative. For example, while we may… Continue

Isn't loving the lord great: Catholic School Teacher Fired for Marriage

first, I don't get it when people who, in most cases, know what they crazy, insane religion is about, yet complain when these moronic religious laws touches their lives.

Take the case of this Catholic school teacher for example, loosing her livelihood for marrying a divorced man.



"She told the San Antonio Express-News that the firing took some of the joy out of the preparations for the marriage."





"I couldn't get out of bed. It's just been this cloud.…

Did an angel save girl from dying in hospital?

I have my own question: Does God and his angel choose who they want to heal?



My question arose when it was reported that "A 14-year-old girl with a history of serious health issues lay dying of pneumonia in a hospital room. But as her mother waited for the girl to take her last breath, an image of bright light appeared on a security monitor. Within an hour, the dying girl began a recovery that doctors are at a loss to explain."…
