It is no mistake that nearly half of the American population doesn’t attend church as over the past 30 years religion turned intolerant.
“UNChristian,” reveals why it is happening, but surprisingly doesn't recognize the role of Christianity, the group that nurtures them, as a part of the reason for… Continue

I just finished reading the personal diaries of Eve and Adam - you know, the original humans. It would appear that Mark Twain discovered the original manuscripts and succeeded to translate the ancient hieroglyphs somehow (perhaps he used a top hat) and published them to the world. I will be… Continue

Amid the brilliance of Dawkins, Harris, Dennett and Hitchens' books, Wendy Kaminer's Sleeping With Extraterrestrials may have been overlooked. Written just a couple of years before 9/11, this book breaks some important ground in the New Atheist movement. Kaminer takes the wise step of refraining from criticizing a person's individual beliefs,… Continue

When is the last time you read a book that challenged your beliefs? Most of my readings consist of books on science because I want to learn and gain a better understanding of how the universe works. So, how in the world did I end up agreeing to read Lee Strobel’s “The Case For Christ”?
About a year ago, I convinced my brother Kyle, a… Continue

It's all true. We have to believe this story. From the mouth of a child. Buy the book. Support heaven and the blue-eyed Jesus. Why wouldn't you just believe? I mean, here's what the publisher says:
“This was a very down-to-earth, conservative, quote-unquote normal Midwestern family. We became fully convinced that this story was valid. And also that it was a great story that would just take off.”…

God in Chaos
The purpose of this book is to examine and understand the purpose of religion in the view of the Theory of Evolution and Natural Selection. It is hoped that you and I will work to explore some of the ideas of God, Religion, and… Continue

I was greatly amused last week to see that my husband pulled out "Baby's First Mythos" to read to our son at bedtime.
The kid may end up learning about Cthulhu before he learns about Jesus! Which is fine with me, because he will probably use that knowledge more in certain circles and at certain times in his life.
We also have a children's book about Noah's Ark. I don't object to it at all. He will probably need to know the Noah's Ark story by the time he reaches kindergarten,… Continue

I live in Texas.
I’ve always been an atheist.
All my life I’ve had to put up with these bible pounding clowns who think their “Manure” does not stink.
Well it does.
I’ve seen these clown just ruin a college.
At first there were no preachers on the Board of Regents.
Then one day there was one.
The next thing you knew all the Regents were preachers.
That lead to the demise of the college.
It lost it’s… Continue

As discussed in my previous blog, the books my aunt promised to send arrived today. She sent me Josh McDowell's The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict

Thanks to everyone… Continue

I would like to read more books about Atheism and also some about sciences so I can understand and know more about what scientist are discovering. I only know of the basics of subjects such as evolution and the big bang theory. But I want to know what other things scientists are saying about our origins and get a deeper understanding about what little I do know. Does anyone have any Atheist authors or books about any of these things? Hopefully in the form of an ebook or article? I can't go to… Continue

Good to find this community in the Season of Un-Reason (though I was born on Christmas and became a minister, I now climb
the trees and honor the life of Nature on that, and other, days!).
I invite conversation and readers here, and on my website
. I especially welcome comments on my book Life After Faith
and I'm happy to hear from any other writers or teachers (or former… Continue

SEATTLE, Washington—Fresh from the keyboard of science-thriller writer Lori Stephens, Alpha, Omega is—like Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code—fiction with a forceful message. The story starts with a corpse. A defector from a cult called Omega has bled to death, and the only clue is the book he’s clutching: the Librah Vae-ta, the holy scripture that the Omega founders engineered over a century ago. Dr. Gatsby Donovan resolves to help solve the bizarre murder. As she spirals deeper into the danger… Continue

"Consider the way that knowledge is organized at institutions of higher education. My university, like most others, includes a College of Arts and Sciences that is divided into a number of divisions. The Division of Science and Mathematics includes physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and one human-related department-psychology. The Division of Social Sciences includes anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, and sociology. These human-related subjects are often… Continue
