Why do theists think that quoting the bible will change our minds? It obviously didn't already and its not going to. It has no rock hard evidence of anything.
They use scare tactics to get us believe -- saying we're going to Hell for not believing. What do they honestly expect us to do? Say "oh, you're treating me like a gullible child so I better shape up and listen to you." No. It's like their telling us "If you don't believe in Santa, you won't get any presents." Only, there are no… Continue

Well, in school I have recently attended a few Bible Study classes just out of pure interest. During most of I I could barely stop myself from laughing, but today however, I was fuming. The teacher was talking about how the Bible was the infallible word of God and that they were God's instruments, she also commented on how "secular-humanists" A.K.A. Atheists are close minded and seek simple Earthly pleasures to fill the void left by their lack of faith in God. I just wanted to yell, especially… Continue

This simple question I have heard asked by many people about Catholic's and Christian's drive to to see their views of how people should live imposed on all Americans -- one can even say, as made clear by ex-President Bush's war in Iraq and war-like rhetoric of "evil countries," imposed on the world.
Ex-Vice President Dan Quayle put it this way to a teen interviewing him and asked the quite adult question about allowing abortion in the case of incest:… Continue

MRFF Responds to Military's Denial that U.S. Troops are Proselytizing Muslims
By Chris Rodda
This is taken from Talk 2 Action and here is their web site.
As expected, the U.S. military quickly denied that the video released on Sunday by Al Jazeera is evidence that our troops proselytizing Muslims in Afghanistan, claiming that what was shown in the video was an isolated incident, and that the… Continue

I suppose I've never really written about this before, because it seems like too obvious a point to need addressing. But people do keep making these same tired old arguments
, displaying a very tedious lack of imagination or intellectual curiosity.

A few minutes ago there was a knock at the door. I usually don't answer the door - it's always bible beaters. Well, it was. :-D
They said I was the first atheist they had come across. We talked for a few minutes and they were interested in setting up a time to meet and talk further. I'm meeting them when my shift ends today at starbucks... this is going to be FUN!!!

If you’re a Christian or to be specific a member of Eliseo Soriano’s “Ang Dating Daan” or ADD for short, chances are you’ve already read Soriano’s triage against atheism.
Using Soriano’s blog post (The Claim That There Is No God Is An Escape From All Realities
), well what can I say…maybe instead of making a rebuttal I think it would be fitting to make an article… Continue

This was a response to another earlier blog and I though I'd just put it out there for those that came out of religion after brainwashing their own children.
When I left the Jehovah's Witnesses my kids were 8 and 6 years old. They were fully brainwashed already. My son was able to go to the doors with me and give a 6 minute sermon including the reading of a couple of scriptures. My daughter was six and about to start doing her own sermons at the door. My little girl would be warning… Continue

My wife and I come home today after class and find a package on the porch. Having not yet ordered my books for next quarter I was puzzled as it was addressed to me with a "care of" my Father. I inspected the box and saw "Christian Bookstores" plastered all over the sides. "Uh oh." I muttered.

I was forced to go to church until I was 16. Every sunday I got dressed up in ridiculous, uncomfortable clothes and forced to waste a perfectly good sunday listening to a grueling marathon of religious rhetoric and human psycho babble.
The church of jesus christ of latter day saints was the bane of my young existence. In terms of churches it has to be the worst one. The Sabbath starts out with something called 'Sacrament' which is an hour meeting where members of the congregation… Continue

Taken from my blog
Later this week my religion class is going to be "debating" whether or not Jesus was born of a virgin. I of course am going to say he wasn't, and as practice thought I'd run through my reasons here.
What I think it comes down to is probability. Which is a more probable explanation for crop circles?

It seems to me that the religious people, the thinking religious people who attempt to argue for their religion, do so by convincing the unbelieving listener that he is just like them. He begins to speak of the "mercy" of his religion, he speaks of how "Moses" was concerned with mankind, or that Muhammad freed the women of Arabia.
My point is: if you really believe that Islam or Judaism is REALLY the right way, then why would you apologise for it by attempting to adjust to a more secular… Continue

From time to time, I may post a short blog detailing problems with theistic world-views. These posts are meant to be rants that exist largely for my pleasure. They are also meant to be non-technical and easy to follow, so you won't find a lot of philosophical mumbo-jumbo here. I hope you enjoy them.
One of the recurring arguments you will hear from theists [especially Christians it seems] is that without an external law-giver we can have no "objective" morality. For the sake… Continue

As expected, Barack Obama did have to swear the Oath of Office a second time, this time in a more intimate setting with just a few of the press corp. However, some Americans may feel the new President has made yet another blunder by not swearing on the Bible. Amazingly, given the God-squad in America, not a bible was found anywhere near the swearing in. As the TimesOnline reported, one blogger snarled "Expect a third oath when bitter small town gun- and Bible-toting America finds… Continue
