Jesus will never disappoint you” – Church sign boldly states religion’s Big Lie

“All religions are the same.  Religion is basically guilt, with different holidays.”

Cathy Ladman

"Praying is like a rocking chair.  It’ll give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.”

Gypsy Rose Lee

 

Church signs are a never-ending source of wonder and speculation for us humanists: assuming that there is nowadays an endless source of them (the Internet assures an endless supply of…

Get God out of Government!

"Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

Moving Forward in a post-religious world

I want to thank everyone for their support.  I feel very welcome.  I am receiving a lot of support from new found friends as well.  Although I have not the courage to overtly state my opinion to everyone in my family, I also think it is not necessary that they all need to know right away.  I have been very open about it in public and most of those people are either indifferent, agnostic or atheist themselves.  I am a little shocked by this realization.  I was under the impression that so…

Putting Abandoned Quebec Churches to Good Use

The Days When The Church Ruled

This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window. Yet I was told that you were going to build one more. I said the scheme is good, but where are you going to find room? They said, we…

South Korean Enemy #1: Lady Gaga

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…

Image of G'd burned in our brains as children

Gwen (a fraudulent friend of my late mother)  asked me why did I hate G'd so much.  I asked, who told you that I hated G'd?  When did I say that and where did I say that?  Gwen told me, well you don't go to church, you don't worship Jesus.  I knew where Gwen was going with this and I turned the tables on her.  I said the following.

First of all, get your facts straight before you come to me with bullshit.  Let's address this Jesus thang, shall we? Where does it say from the OT…

christian propaganda

   Hello fellow free thinkers, I was recently at a local muncipal government health clinic. There on a stand with information purtaining to the clinic, and it's services was a stack of issues from a local, "community monthly publication". The title is: "Changing Times", and evident by the cross accompaning the title, and the content within; this is a christian publication! This clinic is run by the local municipality, which in turn is part of the state's department of health & hospitals,…

Heaven On It's Head

 

 

"In a world that is really upside down, the true is a moment of the false."- Guy Debord, Society of the Spectacle

 

What is an interesting quandary amid Christians is the heaven factor. It appears everyone wants to go; however, no one's in a rush to get there; a spark of revelation; could be.…

Atheistic Liberalism vs. Non-theistic Community

This post is prompted by some discussions among members of a local atheist group about building an atheist community.  

My ideas orignate from several months of thought on the subject of community.  A recent discussion thread in the groups online forum included descriptions of an Oregon-based community youth church, comments about the Flatirons Community Church (currently the second largest church in Colorado, based on weekly attendance), and another member's advocacy for recreating…

The c-word

I refuse to capitalize christian/christianity (unless it begins a sentence). It’s not that I don’t respect your right to believe as you please, in fact if you are truly a christian I respect your beliefs and would like the same in return. What I don’t respect, and in fact resent, is the level at which christianity is ever increasingly being shoved down the throats of those of us who don’t happen to subscribe.  Christianity is used as a vehicle to dictate cessation of behavior that you… Continue

My Atheism Doesn’t Need Evolution

Atheists are often portrayed as die hard believers in evolution, and atheism is quite often portrayed as being dependent upon believing in the validity of evolution. But you know what? Some people, such as myself, did not need to rely on Darwin to steer our courses off the path of religion and onto the path of reason.

 

Consider:

 

The bible was not created by a god nor inspired by the word of any god. It was written by a number of people who tried…

Valid and Invalid Beliefs: The Pope and Other Carlatans

Over the past week I have engaged a number of christians on Twitter, and it seems as though evidence for beliefs, and specifically, what is it that makes beliefs valid or invalid. So I want to address directly the nature of valid and invalid beliefs, and then would like to shift my focus to one tweeter in particular and the pope and some comments he recently made.



Because christians and atheists always seem to start running into problems here, each criticizing the other of not having… Continue

The Time Has Come: Put catholics in Their Place

On July 1, 2011, Dalton McGuinty, the Premier of Ontario, announced that starting in Spetember, catholic schools would no longer be allowed to prohibit the formation of gay-straight alliances by students. In an address by a Member of Provincial Parliament, Glenn Murray (Toronto Center), read a statement from the Premier during Toronto’s Pride Week. The statement read, “Starting in September, it will be students, not principals or school boards, that will decide whether a school has an LGBT… Continue

Even More catholic Whining

Back on June 13, 2011, I wrote the blog post More catholic Whining, in which I described the situations happening in some States like New York and Illinois, involving certain catholic charities having issues with their states making it illegal to discriminate against straight couples in common law relationships and to discriminate against gay couples when providing fostering and adoption services. Now I thought this story was…

Christian Music--Embedding Jesus in Your Head

Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill, Phil Keaggy, Second Chapter of Acts, John Fischer, The Way, Oak Ridge Boys, Elvis, "Gospel," holy hymns, church choirs, "sacred" music, Young Life Songs and Creations spiral songbook. . .it was, and is, an endless composition of brain-saturation.  I listened to countless hours of it, went to concerts, bought the albums, met some of the "artists" like Stonehill, Fischer, Barry McGuire, Yohann Anderson and others.  Believe it or not, I once sang in an 8000-voice…

Atlanta Church violates schoolchildren's rights... repeatedly. After being told to stop.

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- A parent’s complaint and action by Gwinnett County school officials has apparently not stopped volunteers at a church from asking students to pray before a test. A parent contacted Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh on Wednesday and said it happened to her son twice before he took an exam at a local church. Thursday a student told Kavanaugh it happened again, despite intervention by school officials.
