It's great to be free from the superstitious thinking I once had, but sometimes wonder how god belief gave me an overall…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

I need your help and advice.
Awhile ago I heard about Seth Andrews' $30,000 Atheist Charity Drive. Before that I had heard about the Foundation Beyond Belief and other pre-existing secular charities.
While thinking about this, an idea entered my mind. Why not reach out to…Continue

Nevermind crazy pseudo-theocratic North Korean regimes that wish to invade them using incursion tunnels. Nevermind that this extremely isolationist rogue state has nukes and rocketry advanced enough to deliver certain nuclear incineration death anywhere in their country.
Some South Korean…Continue
I found a fake bill Bible tract last summer and blogged about it. I had it on hand and figured a Christian preacher would appreciate it.
Here's the calculus that unfolded in my mind. I figured I didn't need the bill any more and this guy was preaching to people on the street. No good…Continue
The complex of beliefs and rituals surrounding Easter and passover make it so complicated and strange that the farther I go from religion the more it confuses the hell out of me. During my Catholic youth, I…Continue

Well today's Good Friday when we're all reminded by Christians about the bloody crucifixion of the almost certainly fictional Jesus Christ. So I thought I would write a seasonal piece about the topic that disregards why…Continue
Back in February I made the first post (Teaching Religious Mythology 1: Noah's Ark) of what I intend to be series on introducing different religious stories to kids and what resources are out there to help accomplish…Continue
First of all, I am who I am! I will not, by godlessdamn, be anything other than myself.
Second, I have little to loose. I played the games, faked the faces, but I never could really hide who I am. I became disliked, sometimes ridiculed, very often ignored, but because I have always believed in a few things very strongly, things like ethics and truth, and I stood up for them rather than…Continue
If I were a christian I could pick whatever kind of beliefs I wanted and then choose a church and jump in. I'd have plenty to do. There'd be friends to spend time with.
If I were a christian I could be eccentric or different and still find a niche where I belong.
If i were a christian our house would often be filled with guests, people showing up just to talk, people hanging around when there's trouble, people to listen when I need someone to talk to.
If I were a…Continue
This is a cross-post from the Think Atheist site from around a week ago
Just moved to West Virginia. Among the standard frustrations of moving, I chose the occasion to read the local paper (thankfully online), and ran across this gem in the Letters to the Editor section: Jesus is the reason for a Christmas…Continue

As a researcher, I've found the Barna Group to be highly professional and focused on making sure the minutiae…

What is this miraculous evidence of Jesus' love?
Jesus and his disciples were out walking around and became hungry, as you do. Jesus spied a fig tree and went up to it excited. But, when he found there was no fruit on the fig tree, Jesus got angry at it and put a curse on the fig tree causing it to wither away and then lectured to his disciples about the need for faith.
Don't get me wrong, the Old Testament is worth being burned (and as a hard-core reader, who faints when the page of a book is torn, that's something for me to…
