A little section on my next story. Enjoy!
“I understand you have been asking questions about the ‘Unbelievers’,” The Grand Father asks me.
I nod my head, “Yes, I have,” and as an afterthought I add, “Grand Father.”

1. You can't usually "win" a debate, the losing party usually scatter
when they've had enough.
2. Debating with your non-debating friends is like playing paintball
with inexperienced people. It's too easy, and if they're irrational,
immature and/or illogical they won't drop their belief or disbelief that
was wrong, they'll hate you for pointing it out and calling on it.
3. Personal attacks are commonplace. It only happens when the losing
party has… Continue

From Atheist Climber Blog
Writing this blog has been a huge learning experience for me. I've had a large amount of comments, on some threads particularly, which have ranged from enlightened thought through to downright insanity, but each has helped me formulate just where I stand in relation to religion, humanity and the universe. One thing has become clear to me when discussing issues with… Continue

I published this piece at my blog and thought you all might appreciate it.
As you may know, my universe has no room for the possibility of a god. And in general I don't care what other people think and believe as long as their suppositions and practices don't affect me in any way. You can believe in fairies and unicorns and believe you have to bay at the moon 2 times a night to stop from… Continue

One of the innate human characteristics that separates us from other animals on earth is our insatiable need to find out "why". Our natural need to seek for things like food and a mate is shared with other animals, but the questioning of why things happen is a unique to humans. It is ingrained in us, from the first day we start searching… Continue

We know nothing.
The collective knowledge of all the people on earth that have ever lived is but a drop in the ocean of all possible knowledge in the universe. (1)
And the amount of knowledge any one person has is… Continue

Via Atheist Climber Blog
Religion really is an oddity in humanity. When citing religion, one can be excused for irrational behaviour or beliefs. It gives people an excuse to not take part in the cultural norms of the society they live in. It allows people rights and privileges that people not of that religion are denied. It regularly excuses wrongdoing and lawbreaking if these are done "in the name of God". It… Continue

From "Atheist Climber" blog,
There seems to be a lot of confusion for people on what is a compelling argument, and what is just muddying the waters of debate. So often, when in discussions around the existence of gods, the yeasayer will turn to personal experiences of things… Continue

Humans create religions in an attempt to make sense of the world and encourage social stability. They base their ideas on current scientific/intellectual and moral standards, combining current ideas about the world with what they consider plausible speculation about the unknown (and it is precisely 'the unknown' that they desire to explain or have explained).
In the case of constructing an explanation for the origin of the universe and human life, and what happens after death, in the… Continue

First off, it would be rather iggnorant to think that in all the vast reaches the entire Universe that we Earth dwellers are alone and/or the highest form of life. My personal belifs are that there should be at least some other planet that is still sustaining life on it. If it happend here on Earth, why can't it happen elsewhere?
ON THE TOPIC OF HOSTILITY WITH/FROM OTHER WORLDLY LIFEFORMS: the number 1 rule to remember is show that you…

The Meaning of Life
I personally believe that the meaning of life is simply to survive. Look at any other form of life and you’ll see that this is a simple universal truth:
Trees growing toward the sun looking for energy
Animals hunt or are… Continue

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

As religion and its sycophants continue to crumble under the weight of science and reason, its exponents have dialed up the polemics and the deceit
Jacqueline Maley's editorial, "Atheism's true believers gather", published in The Sydney Morning Herald
is one of the most disingenuous, inaccurate portrayals of atheists—replete with some of the most outlandish faulty logic… Continue

Just something I found interesting. Many people who can go online have a Facebook account so *if what most people say is true in anyway then*
it's a pretty accurate site to create public polls that will have realistic results. This morning I came across a Facebook Group whose aim was "We Can Find 1,000,000 People Who DO Believe In Evolution Before June"
thanks to a friend
suggesting it to me.… Continue

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
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

Our universe is a place of massive physical forces, and given the microscopic size of humanity in the scale of it all, it’s not surprising that we get caught up in the midst of these forces. And when we do, lives and infrastructure are lost on a relatively massive scale.
In 2004, the Indian Ocean Tsunami, caused by a massive earthquake off the west coast of Sumatra, causing massive devastation of homes and communities, and taking more than 230,000 lives in Indonesia, Sri Lanka,… Continue

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
