I regularly post new updates on my Twitter (@antitheistangie) and on my Facebook (Angie Jackson). So feel free to stalk me on the internet (within reason ya'll - I know where the restraining order office is.)



Without further ado:…

Mondo Diablo Episode 214: Our Heavenly Father's Plan





This week’s clips are from an LDS (Mormon) video that explains an odd kind of epistemology: pray to God and He will tell you what you need to know. The bilge is rising. Hear a horrible song sung by a child, some Song-Poems, some mashups, and maybe even the Voice of God Herself.

Cursed by a Street Preacher!

As I was minding my own business this Friday afternoon on campus (U. Mississippi) waiting for calculus class, I was accosted by a street preacher. Before talking to me, I overheard the man talking with another student a few metres away. It seemed that he had the poor chap convinced. Anyway, when he was done with that student, he began talking with my friend I was waiting with, a Christian, about "salvation" and such. After being reassured that my friend would certainly go to Heaven upon death,… Continue

Is it Ethical for the Free Thinking Community to Bite Our Tongues and Allow the Religious to Stop Progress?

I wrote an article against Kissimmee Florida’s City Council’s attempt to put “In God We Trust” on their city seal. The day after the article was written the Kissimmee City Council decided to quash the motion and their attempt to make their town a mini theocracy ended. A few days later, a man from Georgetown, Texas named Dave Atkinson wrote me a series of emails on the… Continue

Going on right now

Over at Angie the Anti-Theist I've got a lot uncommented posts. Those make me sad :( So I've done a few things to make it easier for non-Blogger members to join in the conversation. I'm using the Intense Debate comment system, allowing anonymous posters, and I've switched my blog to accept GRAvitars.

Faith: My Conversation With A Devout Christian

Today, via AIM, I had a conversation with a very strong minded Christian. I was curious as to what exactly she believed so we had a discussion about evolution, natural selection, Horus and the like. I feel the need to post some of the more memorable responses. The best one:



corim1234: Okay. It just seems like anything I asked you, you just said you don’t believe in it. What kind of proof has God given you to believe in Him? Surely physical evidence like the hieroglyphs or fossils are… Continue

Senseless Tragedy

This excerpt begins with me watching 30 children for 3 days while their parents attend my grandmother's faith healing lecture, held in the clubhouse of a south Florida trailer park. This all happened in the fall of my Freshman year of high school.



Alexander was two years old, blond, quiet and sweet. He was one of the kids still in diapers, but he was the only one in cloth ones. I thought they were gross, messy, and more work; I was worried about sticking him with one of the… Continue

The Prejudice of Christians

AN: Am I asking for it? Read this here or at Good Reason News





This is a little out of character for this blog, but this guy from the New American, whatever that is, really needed a logical spanking. You can see several of my posts in the comments there, but I warn you, someone on there… Continue

Intro, and a Fundie explains Evolution

OK, this is my first post, but it's 1am and I'm a little tired. Need to be quick, as I'm not supposed to have PC access right now....



My family currently requires me to go to church with them twice a week: once on Sunday morning, and once on either Sunday or Wednesday night. That often interferes with my work schedule, but they don't care. They'll just kick me out of the house if I refuse (not joking, sadly).



Tonight I sat through an hour of the youth pastor explaining the… Continue

Public Enemies: Worth Looking At, Not Worth Watching

Based on the true story of a notorious depression-era bank robber, Public Enemies brings the crime spree and police hunt of John Dillinger to the silver screen. In a film that desperately attempts to provoke any emotion, Public Enemies fails to capture the imagination, create emotional dimension or shock the senses.



In 1933, during the height of the Great Depression, John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) and his crew crisscrossed the country, robbing banks and became folk heroes. During an… Continue

Church is NONSENSE!

Ahhh i can't stand church... Yes, my parents still make me go. *sigh*. First I have to go to youth group. And what a bunch of hypocritical so-called christians!

Your supposed to be christians or whatever and praying for the lord and not complaining or something? Idon't know..so anyways, then they'll… Continue

My first Christian!

My blog Angie the Anti-Theist now has the FIRST shiny new comment from a Christian. It's glorious - he acts snooty, tells me I'm arrogant, that I was a bad Christian, and that gawd hasn't given up on me yet.

Oh happy happy blog world!

Terminator Salvation: I Bet You Can't Find The Plot Through All The Explosions



Terminator Salvation is a pre-sequel (or is it a se-prequel) to the previous three movies in the Terminator series. Atrocious writing, shoddy effects and lackluster acting made me wonder why they bothered to make Terminator Salvation at all.



Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) is recruited by Dr. Serena Kogan (Helena Bonham Carter) while on death row to be part of a mysterious experiment. Years later, Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) and Star… Continue

Conversatios with my Mother; part 2

My mom knows I'm an atheist and that I'm writing a book about her scandalous cult-leading mother. She's bothered by the first and okay with the second. We ended up in a really constructive conversation last night about religious extremism. I told her that I'm planning on marketing my upcoming book to "moderate christians" because I think they need to wake up and take responsibility for the crazies in their flock. Oddly enough, she agrees. She's on the "leadership council" and "planning… Continue

MRFF Responds to Military's Denial that U.S. Troops are Proselytizing Muslims

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.

http://www.talk2action.org/story/2009/5/5/133344/8582





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

ANOTHER SINNING PASTOR

When a Christian decided to go soul fishing on the Unreasonable Faith site recently, his ignorance of the reality of non-belief and non-believers tripped him up.



Most Religionists are incredibly ignorant of what it means to be a non-believer. Fundamentalists of any brand are among the most naive in this respect. The gross inadequacy of their primary assumptions about the causes and characteristics of atheism is one of the reasons why attempts to reconvert the disillusioned faithful… Continue

This is a response to the question,"What brought you to atheism?"

This was a question that I was asked by another recovering Ex Jehovah's Witness:



[QUOTE]

you've briefly touched on your past a couple of times, but kinda glanced over exactly what it was that you were into after you left the JW world...

mysticism or something?

like Wicca type stuff?



can you tell me a lil about that...

what drew you to it?

and most importantly, what turned you off of it??



but seriously, i'd like to know what your… Continue

IS "CHRISTIAN WITNESS" RUDE BEHAVIOR?

Friendships with Fundies can be very taxing.



When I began my friendship with “Frieda” we were both members of an Australian Methodist church. I began studying for the Methodist ministry but the intensive academic study of the Bible led to me losing my religious beliefs. Shortly after that Frieda moved to a country town. The ensuing 20 year relationship has been continued, for the most part, by email.



When the Methodist Church joined to become part of the Uniting Church,… Continue
