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

A Simi-Agnostic Atheist Manifesto

Before you read this: if you have an allergy to stupidity don't read this.

"Journalist" Ron Rosenbaum has written an article for Slate Magazien called An Agnostic Manifesto. In the article he takes the agnostic fence sitting to its illogical conclusion. He has taken his misunderstanding of agnosticism, and mixed it with the holier than thou attitude of a religious… Continue

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.”

15 things you should know about debating.

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

"Atheist Schools of Thought" - from Atheist Climber Blog

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

"It's OK, it's part of my religion" from Atheist Climber blog

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

"Science, atheism and the search for more" - From Atheist Climber Blog



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

"At the edge of knowledge" from Atheist Climber Blog



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

"Just One Fix" from Atheist Climber blog

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

"Objectivity vs Subjectivity in debate" from Atheist Climber

From "Atheist Climber" blog,



Rembrandt's "Two Philosophers"



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

The Invention of Religion

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

Search For Alien Life Gets Serious - FINALLY!

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

Micro-organisms multiplying

When Religion's Apologists Attack!



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"[1], 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
