Tax Exemptions: The Business of Religion

Disclaimer: The Omnipotent Poobah, aka Jack Koeneman, is a former Christian turned atheist. He has nothing against most theists and respects their beliefs – up to the point where they step on his.



I have dozens of theist friends. Our discussions are generally polite and lean toward the relative merits of atheist and theist beliefs, not mundane secular topics like religious tax breaks. But with the hew and cry over…

The Hell With Atheists After the Foxholes

Many people say, “There are no atheists in foxholes.” As a practical matter this obviously isn’t the case, but the Army’s new Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Program (CSFP)…

The Insulting Idolatry of Theism

While I reject the idea that the Universe is governed by some supremely powerful entity who exercises sovereignty over the cosmos and intervenes in the daily lives of humble monkeys inhabiting a tiny planet at the ass end of nowhere, I fully recognize the reality that the Universe is governed by a vast number of physical properties and principles. The critical difference between ascribing the wonder and complexity of the Universe to the machinations of a deity…

Rant: Whats the Meaning and Purpose of Meaning and Purpose?

Many theists say that with out god life has no meaning and purpose, we atheists say that with out an afterlife life has more meaning and we make out own purpose, they reply with "but its not objective", we point out that objective meaning and purpose are impossible. Well here is a new question: Whats the meaning and purpose of meaning and purpose? Do happy people give a shit… Continue

I don't care about cosmic meaning

Copied from my blog



This is an extinction to a comment (3 actually due to the 500 character comment limitation) I am made to this video (under the name "thenamelessone83"). It is not a Christian video about some cosmic meaning (which is what it would seem like from my comment) it is an atheist video… 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

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

The Never Ending Story!

It the Never ending stooooooooorrryyyyyyyy!!!! (And for those of you who have not seen the movie, Don't Watch It!)



Atheism Vs Theism is an old debate, a long and old debate.



I am a dedicated Atheist, I will fight with Theism on every front, but this old tired process of Atheism being the minority is getting on my Nerves!



Why must Atheism continue to be the minority?



The Debate reminds me of an analogy: Two kids are sitting in a sandbox, pulling… Continue

One down, one to go!

Now all that is left is that pesky Pledge of Allegiance. The original version was published on October 11, 1892 and the current version was published on June 14, 1954.



The words to the current Pledge of Allegiance are:

I pledge allegiance to the Flag

of the United States of America,

and to the Republic for which it stands:

one Nation under God, indivisible,

With Liberty and Justice for all.



Now, I will not say that the entire Pledge is wrong. Just… Continue

The Age of 'Theists' is Over!

Theism (As per Dictonary.com) is “the belief in one God as the creator and ruler of the universe, without rejection of revelation”. Those who follow this age old belief are, as I call them, 'Theists'. What good has 'Theists' offered to the world? Well, they have offered only destruction to this world. They have killed MILLIONS over petty, 'Religious Wars'. They stoop to under-handed attempts to block out any thought that goes against anything they say, under their false banner of… Continue

Unfair Criticism of PZ Myers and other Secular Scientists

On July 31, 2008 Salon.com posted an articled titled: What's wrong with science as religion, by Karl Giberson. Giberson, who has a PhD in physics and is the author of “Saving Darwin: How to be a Christian and believe in Evolution” was responding to a July 24th web posting by PZ Meyers on Meyers’ blog Pharyngula. (http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/) In the web posting Meyers stuck a rusty nail in a communion cracker, and then used the nail to impale pages of the Qur’an and Richard Dawkin’s “The… Continue
