Wendy Wright - USA should be Ashamed of having any Such Idiots in Leadership Positions.

I still cannot get over the interview between Richard Dawkins and Wendy Wright, published around Xmas time 2012, such stupidity and Irrationality displayed by Wendy rings sadly in my ears, I felt totally dismayed that any person leading a lobby group could be that STUPID.

I've witnessed such arrogant stupidity from general, poorly educated citizens who held basic desk and clerical jobs, many never having met nor studied science in their lives.

Every time I hear…

Genocide is OK if the True God commands it – but how to know which God is the right one?

Richard Dawkins in recent writings has referred a number of times to a charming fellow named William Lane Craig, also known as "the Genocide Preacher". For those who have not heard of him he has a webpage with the preposterous title of "Reasonable Faith". In a recent Q & A page he explains why it was perfectly…

My Favorite Lines From Mirror Reversal

His father was a venerable and respected police officer who never took a bribe except when he needed money.

 

“… mankind can be defined as ‘a peculiar ape infested by meme complexes!’” 

 

‘Fifty dollars for fellatio and a hundred for coitus.’  I gotta write that down so I can use it on the muckety-mucks from Connecticut.”

Mondo Diablo Episode 315: Scaring the Hippies with John Waters

We are wasting our time if we can't help these gay teens.

Often when I reflect upon my day, I am amazed how much of my time is wasted going through hate mail. No, I'm not talking about those "my god loves you and enjoy the fires of Hell" letters I get from those wacky and kooky theists. I'm speaking of the emails I get from other atheists. Yeah, I actually get more from our team.

 

The last four emails I have received could be boiled down to this:

 

"There is no such thing as a new atheist!"

"Once a…

One Nation, Over God: A Lecture By Aaron Bissell

I just want to say, throughout this, I talk about mostly about the Christian religion since that is the one I researched the most.



So, lets cover the basics of religion. Now, I understand that people WAY back then would believe such things as a sun god, a moon god sky god etc. They didn't have modern science. So, they just made up certain stories. Many people from different cultures made up there own gods (well, Christians just picked certain things from other religions and…

Another Secular Student Alliance production, sort of...

I just learned, via facebook, that the SkeptICTs of Wichita State University are going to have a free event this May 21, 2011. It is being put on by the Air Capital Skeptics. I guess this is the day for "Rapture" as it is being held as a "Rapture Day" event. Apparently another religious adherent has taken it upon himself to figure out the day that Jesus is going to return to Earth. Or at least begin the Rapture.I think it should be May 22, so we wo0uldn't have to deal with their crap…

SOME THOUGHTS FROM THE GOD DELUSION

Observation and thoughts derived from the book The God Delusion: Chapter 10, Dawkins wrote the statement that 96 percent of the population of the United States thinks that they will survive their own death. If one was to say that should I jump off this 12 story building unaided, after I hit the bottom of the pavement, I will survive that fall. Any reasonable person would have no other recourse but to find the nearest phone and call 911 for emergency services. Because my statement would…

Joel Olsteen's representative explains admission price.

This afternoon I was contacted by Andrea from Lakewood Church. The Houston Megachurch that Olsteen leads. When I asked her about the cost of the ticket. She explained that it covered the cost of paying

for the Scottrade Center employees and various things such as that. I tried to express my view that if this is a message that is good for everyone to hear that provision should be made for making the event

free. Andrea explained that they used to have free attendance at these events…

Chapter Three; EVOLUTION AND RELIGION part ten

While many reasonable adherents do , to one level or another, believe in evolution. Why should evolution have any bearing on religion one way or the other? Some of these levels of belief range from belief in

“micro-evolution” to accepting most of the concepts and ideas of

cosmological and biological evolution, in view of an absent watchmaker.

So, what scientific reason can evolution have with such a seemingly

strong opposing view against it? After all, in March 2009, a…

Chapter Ten; CONGRATULATIONS CHARLES DARWIN part forty

2009 was the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin birth and also the 150th anniversary of the publishing of On The Origins of Species In 1859. In The United Kingdom the Royal Mint has issued a commemorative two pound coin with the stuck pose of Darwin on the right facing across from a portrayal of chimpanzee. On the front of the coin is, of course, the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin is issued in a limited edition and you may be able to order on from the website listed… Continue

God In Chaos; Chapter Nine; THE INTELEGENT DESIGN VIEW OF EVOLUTION part thirty-eight

When addressing some of the issues of the fundamentalist view of evolution

it is important to identify some key words that they use to try to

vilify reasonable scientists and educated people that understand the

concepts of evolution and natural selection. From the way the word

is used by the intelligent design side it seems that the word

“Darwinism” is meant to describe the “believers” in the

Theory of Evolution to make it seem more like a radical belief… 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…

Prof Dawkins had the right to do it..well ah..

Yes, RichardDawkins.net belonged to Richard Dawkins. So, in that sense he had the right to close the forum and replaces it with a narrower blog system instead. Of course that is not taking into account what the good Professor wished to use his web site for and the impact of his change upon his own purposes.



Richard spearheaded a movement to try and build up science and reason in the face of growing irrationality. That movement needed a number of things, activists, resources and a… Continue

Surviving the Dawk Bust

Many of you should know by now the events that resulted in the crushing of the RichardDawkins.net forum. If you dont you can find a poigniant description on Peter Harrison's blog. I'm still dizzy from the disruption to my life and my virtual community so I need to chat, but I don't want to chat about those events.



I believe the Dawkins admin folk are planning to replace the forum with… Continue

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
