A Few Thoughts On The Whole "What If You Go To Hell?" Scenario

We have all had that conversation with friends, family, and even in our own minds have pondered the validity of the "What if you go to Hell?" scenario.



Images of devils, demons, exposed human flesh to flame, faces twisted in torturous poses, evil looking imps in observant reveries of delight. The overall themes being rejection, exile, physically unbearable pain, retribution, and guilt. Through many belief systems, Hell is a common thread that most agree upon.…

The Narcissism Of Small Differences: Freud's Accidental Diagnosis Of The Problem With Atheism Today

In the general public, there is an expectation when discussing the infighting amongst atheists, that there will never be a concrete movement away from God due to lack of cohesion. That because of atheists' insistence on individualism and no clear rank and file, atheism in itself, is a flawed logic doomed to…

What's Atheism Got To Do With It? Why Automatically Tagging Philosophy To Atheism Is A Bad Idea.

"So, you're an atheist. What does that mean other than you think you are a gift to the world?"

"How can you call yourself an atheist and support abortion?"

"Atheist men tend to be misogynists."

Intellectual Dishonesty And Being Certain Gods Do Not Exist

There is nothing more aggravating than being in the middle of a discussion about the parameters of what constitutes a God, and another atheist in the discussion says to you,”You are being intellectually dishonest by saying deities absolutely do not exist.…

Symbolism and Propaganda

This may seem like a bit of a 'reach' for you kind reader, but I just had a thought I will probably play around with for a while.

The earliest cross symbol was a pagan one like this:…

Thanks a lot,

The Battle for Zachary's Brain, IX; "Can I show that to Daddy?"

There is nothing that is too obvious of an absurdity to be firmly planted in the human head as long as you begin to instill before the age of five by constantly repeating it with an air of great seriousness.

– Arthur Schopenhauer

Followers of the riveting “Zachary’s Brain” series of posts will know that the narrative is not a Gothic horror tale…but something that is just as disturbing: resisting the religious programming of a child.

His step-mother,…

Why You Can Be Certain Deities Do Not Exist

Whether you used to believe in Jesus or Yahweh, Mohammed or Allah, Krishna or Zeus, I can assure you that none exist. I will even take you further than that and guarantee they do not exist. It is all about your perception of the concept that a god/goddess is. Not a…

The Book Of Life

I have been often troubled by the many mortal human attitudes and behaviors many different deities have taken on in various holy texts. Petty emotions like jealously, bigotry, hate, anger, and lust, to name a few. All of these…

Refresher Course In Work Place Prosyletizing

We Are Just Animated Pieces Of Meat

If you haven’t read the recent Daily Mail piece by A.N. Wilson, I would recommend you do so to follow along with what I am about to go on about. Some of you might already be familiar with his emotional appeal drivel for Christ and might be able to save yourself the agony of reading more of his…

Where the hell have I been?

Beats me.

Oh, well, yeah, I know.  But should I tell?  Mostly I've been running thither and yon, metaphorically speaking, and sinking into a morass of self pity and morose depression.  I have papers to prove it!  OK, not really, but sort'of.  I keep trying to shake off this damned sense of humor but it just won't go away.  I even quit taking my Happy Pills so freely give by the VA and the pissant thing sneaks up on me, like today.

I'm ok if I don't move.  If I take my Gabby and…

Counter-Apologetic to:"You're not an atheist! You're agnostic because you're not certain."

Many Theists make this argument at some point, but it was Carl Sagan who said it with the most clarity:

“An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence. Because God can be relegated to remote times and…

Pot Stories Review

OK, I'll admit it; I was down about the apathy and indifference that greeted my Pot Stories. It was my magnum opus after a life of inescapable unconventionality.  Viet Nam, NYU, the ‘60s, New York City and a smorgasbord of pot and hash, pretty much blocked the straight and narrow path.  Studying social psych with Phil Zimbardo made it improbable I would allow myself to be drafted in 1966 when I graduated, just before the Tet Offensive. In my opinion, every new Army recruit…

Why Identify as an Atheist when I'm More than Just my Lack of Belief?



Atheists are a diverse bunch of people. There's no single set of beliefs or ideas that unite all atheists under a single banner. In fact, the only thing they have in common is that they don't believe in any deities. 



This can make understanding the atheist community rather difficult for an outsider. Doesn't it make more sense to unite with people based on shared beliefs or identifying by what you are rather than what you are not? After all, it makes sense to start a…
