The c-word

I refuse to capitalize christian/christianity (unless it begins a sentence). It’s not that I don’t respect your right to believe as you please, in fact if you are truly a christian I respect your beliefs and would like the same in return. What I don’t respect, and in fact resent, is the level at which christianity is ever increasingly being shoved down the throats of those of us who don’t happen to subscribe.  Christianity is used as a vehicle to dictate cessation of behavior that you… Continue

My Atheism Doesn’t Need Evolution

Atheists are often portrayed as die hard believers in evolution, and atheism is quite often portrayed as being dependent upon believing in the validity of evolution. But you know what? Some people, such as myself, did not need to rely on Darwin to steer our courses off the path of religion and onto the path of reason.

 

Consider:

 

The bible was not created by a god nor inspired by the word of any god. It was written by a number of people who tried…

Married Women Abort for Secret Desire to Make Lesbians Equal



As a former Virginian, I’m all too aware of the asshatery that is Pat Robertson. I once lived a short distance from his colonial palace cum religious law school and occasionally saw some of his on-air “journalists” at the local Farm Fresh. I…

Soviets teaching strict atheism?



My email to the author, because I am so tired of this kind of comparison between communism and atheism.



Dear Sir,



I discovered your book "The Religious Case Against Belief” at the library and have enjoyed it very much.

I do have one question. Being an American atheist, I was wondering exactly how did the Soviets teach "strict atheism"?…

Mondo Diablo Episode 300: It's a Conspiracy II





Does anyone think I need to celebrate because we have a big, round, and soft number here? I mean, should I wait until 500? That could be a long time from now.



Anti-irregardless, I hope everyone knows that this is one way to find out about what I'm doing, but there's also Facebook, which I, uh, "do." You can find "my facebook" at… Continue

This is a two-parter, so today you'll be getting the first half of "It's a Conspiracy," which includes clips from The Hitler Channel's "Secret Societies," with crazy old David Icke. Now, some of you may be familiar with Icke from Alex Jones and the like, so you may not know that Icke thinks there's a race of alien lizard people disguising themselves as powerful leaders. He really thinks this. Hey--some… Continue

Dr Binayak Sen

Dr Binayak Sen

 

First, he is handed down life imprisonment under some 125 year old and obsolete sedition law and now his bail pleas stands rejected by the Chattisgarh  High Court. That is the funny case of Dr Binayak Sen's. The prosecution alleges that the searchers couldn't find a stethoscope from his place and he professes to be a medical doctor! How funny?

 

If a case is built on such findings then Mr Ramjethmalini's assertion that it was “a case of no…

Holy cow — the atheists are proselytizing!

Following up on a local issue here in Rhode Island that has begun to mushroom into a full fledged First Amendment battle, we return to the issue of the prayer banner that has been ignobly displayed in Cranston West High School since 1958.

FUNDAMENTALISTS, THE BIBLE IS NOT INHERENT part thirty-seven





First, ask if they believe if the Old Testament still applies to a Christian Today. This will guide the rest of the discussion. As stated earlier, many fundamentalist state that they think the Bible is free of errors and contradictions. For my purpose and definition I would call “free of errors” as meaning that internally or externally is there anything inconsistent with the or contradictory in the text of the Bible or reflected in reality.

The good thing about this… Continue
