What's this I read?
The pope agrees that good Atheists being good can assist in their getting to heaven.
A rather pointless gesture or olive branch to Atheists.
He seems to believe that Atheists would like to get into heaven.
Many are Atheists because they think the Christian heaven is definitely not only non-existent, but it isn't any sort of a mythical place they'd even think of going if they did believe in it.
Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious Universe hunts the elusive Yeti, and I go off on a feminist rant. So shrill. So goddamned shrill.

“God is the immemorial refuge of the incompetent, the helpless, the miserable. They find not only sanctuary in His arms, but also a kind of superiority, soothing to their macerated egos: He will set them above their betters.”

I really hope there's a good IronChariots article that addresses this, but not finding one I'm putting this here.
I'm not asking the question. Recently I've seen a number of good youtube atheists made awkward by arguments beginning along the lines of asking "Is it possible for a God to exist?". I believe this to be an excellent (from the apologists point of view) trick question. I saw several examples of an atheist responding with a very hesitant, guarded yes, and then I could not…Continue

Had a chat at lunch today. With my girlfriend who is my partner (we live together). She’s an atheist too….so I havent had to deal with any problems there. We talked about what people might think or say about us (especially here) and we also talked about people’s sexual preferences and how that is more accepted here than letting others know that you do not believe in God. Someone she knows is gay and is still somewhat “in the closet” and yet travels miles to be with someone. And it…Continue

A few weeks ago I got a message from a friend after I suggested a website for them to visit to gather information. Later that day as I’m going through my mail I see that my friend replied to my suggestion with a brief note saying “I am a Christian and I cannot go to an atheist website.” I sat there flabbergasted wondering what happened between my suggestion and this note, thinking to myself “What does that have to do with the price of tea in…Continue
A few weeks ago my father passed away. Like me he was an Atheist. Like me he had been one since he was a young man. I was six when I “became” one, or rather realized, like with Santa, the Easter Bunny,
ghosts and all, it was all made up.
So in keeping with my father’s wishes we had a non-religious funeral. I gave the eulogy. I spoke about his life. What he had…Continue
Hi friends I need to start blogging here more often, the accumulated toxins in my brain had me going mad.
Religious people just don't get it, and even worse they don't know it, but then again if they did get it they'd be rational members of this site.
My housemate said to me this morning "You don't believe in Jesus?" I said even more then that, I don't think he ever existed. This a very strong position for me, since I once was sure he was the only begotten son…Continue

An epiphany...I have been doing a great deal of reading on atheism. While I am sure that many people have come to this same conclusion before me I am still impressed that I came up with this on my own in my own little mind.
I was reading about the god of the Old Testament and as we all know he was fairly unpleasant. This seemed to be so different from what my parents taught me about god. They did warn me however that god was watching over me and that he was keeping track of my…Continue
