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…

God In Chaos; Chapter Seven; RELIGION SHINES ITS LIGHT part twenty-seven





Religion has truly surpassed the power of every invention that has followed it. As the

Bronze Age, Iron age, middle ages, the age of enlightenment and the

Modern ages have come and gone and gone, religion has been the enemy of

progress every step of the way. To the faithful, things like the Hubble

Space Telescope, nuclear weapons, and climate change are nothing

compared to the power of a faith that believes in a god. If anything man can… Continue

A Christian? A Muslim? An Atheist? So What?

Not surprisingly, the vast majority of those who question Obama’s religious affiliation are those who oppose the president’s political agenda. What is surprising is that his supporters are increasingly questioning his religious affiliation. Read more:… Continue

Go Naked

I feel like that little boy in front of the naked emperor, looking around thinking "Can't anyone see this? What am I missing?" Of course we should ban the Burqa. It is an icon of discrimination. No one defends the wearing of the Burqa on the grounds that it isn’t discrimination; that would be ridiculous. Religious and cultural justifications are also red herrings. Liberty is the…

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

If He Walks Like a Muslim and Talks Like a Muslim…



HEATHEN! - I'm not saying he's a Muslim, but he sure looks to be a born one to me.

There's nothing surprising about recent poll numbers indicating more people are "confused" about The Messiah's™ true religion than… Continue

Quick funny (to me) thought

On another forum I'm on there is a section for photography. Someone has been trying to take some portraits, and obviously not having much luck getting everyone to smile/look good at the same time. There has been a topic title on the forum all day today, "How many heads do I want to move?" referring, of course, to photo manipulation in order to get the portrait to look good.





So is it bad that all I can think every single time I see that thread title is the snide answer, "Well, that… Continue

Minarets and Mayhem

Minarets are causing a lot of flack in countries like Switzerland and Germany these days, and rightly so. A referendum in Switzerland actually banned the construction of these Muslim spires, citing their “non-Swiss” architecture as reason. While I fully endorse anything that bans religious architecture– be it a Muslim spire or a Catholic basilica–I understand that we have to find a way to live together without killing each other. To get along, we have to make concessions.… Continue

Scare Tactics in Islam

If you search on Google for "Sheikh Ahmed Ali" you find two videos on the first page, of which the following is one. This kind of sermon -- in a Mosque in Britain -- is clearly designed to scare young Muslims into being religious (to avoid God's punishment). In Islam there are many forms of punishment awaiting sinners and disbelievers. These include difficulties/calamities in this world, punishment of the grave and finally,…

Informed is Forewarned: Read the Quran.

I’m almost half-way through my second reading of the Quran and find myself wondering what it would take to make Westerners understand Islamic ideology. I could explain how Islam is a religious, legal and political framework for life . . . but others have already written books about that. So I decided I’ll just frame the problem of Islam as briefly as I can and let the reader consult the Quran if they doubt me. If this leads to just one person reading the Quran, then I’ve accomplished… Continue

The danger of Islam over other religions

I may be misinformed here but my take on Islam is that it is the 'One true religion' and its followers have a duty to convert kaffirs or declare jihad on them (whatever the interpretation of that is). It is that black and white. As for apostates, I know of no other religion where some factions advocate death.



Faith schools and religious segregation are allowed and encouraged by this government and Madrasses are being set up all over the place. I have learned about fundie christian… Continue

Muslim Scientist: Neil Armstrong Proved Mecca – World Center

Here's a video that blew me away completely by its absurdity...

Is this guy on drugs or what??

Further proof that religion is a virus that takes over the mind, to survive every generation.

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

Pat Condell: Agressive Atheism

Pat just keeps getting better and better. His latest video really hangs religion out to dry. Below the video, I've also included the transcript.



Well, I’ve been hearing quite a lot of bitching and whining in the press lately about aggressive, intolerant, atheism; as if that’s, somehow, a bad thing. It seems religion can dish it out okay but it can’t take it: like a street thug who calls the police when his victims fight back. Aggressive atheism is really… Continue

From Ali Sina: The Problem is Islam, not Muslims

I just ran across this essay from the eminent ex-Muslim, Ali Sina: the founder of FaithFreedom International. It expresses my own feelings on the subject better than I could. Note: I edited the essay for grammatical errors (Ali Sina is an Iranian and English is his second language).



The Problem is Islam, not Muslims

The Truth about Faith

The natural realm is the universe and everything in it. The supernatural realm is, by definition, outside the natural realm, so nobody knows, or can know, anything whatsoever about the supernatural. The natural realm is physical; evidence for it is literally everywhere. The supernatural realm is pure conjecture and absolutely unsupported by physical evidence of any kind. The supernatural is, therefor, not scientifically testable.



However, supernatural claims… Continue
