Is Religious indoctrination of children Meltal Abuse?

It's a crime to lock your child up under the stairs. It's considered abuse. I fail to see the difference in locking a child's mind under the stairs. The psychological wounds last forever a broken bone heals in 6-8weeks.



   I myself grew up attending the JW (Jehovah's Witness) kingdom Hall. I'm in my 40's I have 2 kids 18-22. I was lucky in a way, I was born without a God spot and knew from the 2nd day everything that was said and thought  about religions was utter bullshit. And…

The Bankruptcy of the Free Will Defense

Intro:



In the philosophical competition of worldviews many Christians use the "free will defense" as a way to excuse their god's apparent moral negligence in this world. Supposedly the value of free will is greater than whatever evils may result from establishing moral beings who have this opportunity to do both good and evil and suffer or profit as a result of it. I've taken the liberty of assembling all of my analysis of this popular move of theirs. Enjoy.…

Religion, Evil and Insanity: Has God Been Talking to You?

“Men never do evil as completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.”

Blaise Pascal

 

“The religions of mankind must be classed among the mass-delusions of this kind.  No one, needless to say, who shares a religious delusion ever recognizes it as such.”

Sigmund Freud

 

Back in the day, the insane were considered evil, possessed.  You had to beat, torture or drown the demon within.  But the…

Romney, Ryan and the Devil

Romney and Ryan believing in a god would be nothing remarkable: but is it not the case that both believe in a real, active, in-this-world Devil named Satan ?  Or am I confusing theMormon cult with the Moonie cult?

Most believers in radical Islam also believe not simply in the reality of evil, but the reality of a personality named "Satan" or some equivalent.

Motto: if there is no God, hope eternal that there is no Devil

Anne Graham Lotz Helping to Create a Boston Bible Party

Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, took time out from her swim in the shallow end of the Graham family gene pool this weekend to assure everyone that she would NEVER vote for an Atheist.



This isn’t particularly unusual. The Graham family has a long-held antipathy toward Atheists and other minorities. Son Franklin Graham entertains rather birther-like suspicions that maybe Barack Obama isn’t a Christian.

Best Jack Chick Ever

While rummaging around my closet the other day, I came across a page from a Jack Chick comic that, if I remember correctly, I obtained and decided to hang onto back in 1984.  It’s every bit as funny today as it was then.

 

 

It got me to thinking: is this really what the Jack Chicks of…

The evil of Pope Benedict XVI

In a recent visit to London, the Holy Vicar of Christ continues with the past lies of the Catholic Church, continues to shirk the responsibility of his Church, and continues to spread misconceptions that are obviously false.…

The Myth of Good and Evil: From Hitler to Mother Teresa

(Reprinted from my blog HERE)



These days, the archetypes of good and evil in our society are Mother Teresa and Hitler, respectively. If you start with these two as the paradigms, it becomes pretty easy to figure out what "Good" and Evil" are really all about.



I admit that I have never met Adolf Hitler. Fortunately for this blog post, however, I have met Mother Teresa. It was in… Continue

This is why I blog about religion

Sometimes I wonder why I bother blogging about religion and atheism. Does it really matter if I read and talk about religions I don't even believe in anyway? I used to believe in God, after all, so why I don't just let bygones be bygones, leave religion alone, and post about something a little more entertaining, like funny animal videos on YouTube! It'd be a lot cheerier, and I'm sure I'd get a lot more… Continue

Answer me this...

I wrote this blog on Myspace, intended for christians to read. I have posted it here to help other newly converted atheists in their quest for helping other theists to realize that God, in the biblical term, cannot exist.





Below are a series of questions. These are questions that I had asked toward the end of my christianity, and was never given a good answer for any of them. I challenge other believers in a god to ask these questions as well. If these questions could be… Continue

Can theists and atheists really have any rational arguments?

Problem of evil debate - William Lane Craig vs Walter Sinnott-Armstrong



While preparing for the Problem of Evil course I'm now running, I found this debate between Craig and Sinnot-Armstrong above. And it seemed like two people arguing, one in English and the other in French.



Sinnot-Armstrong like any atheist argues from the primacy of the physical world. So suffering is extensive… Continue

The Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

I've always been bothered by why god would have placed a tree in the garden of eden that bore fruit that would cause those who consumed that fruit to have knowledge of good and evil. And then he was so self-righteously angry that they ate the fruit. What did he have in mind? Why would he do such a thing except to set Adam and Eve up for the "fall from grace" that was used to explain all the horrible things that god has supposedly been punishing humankind with ever since. What a perverse trick… Continue

My Response And Thoughs On Kirk Camerons Video "Origin Into Schools"

1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part. However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue

Vilification

Do we need to vilify the messenger?

It appears that some people are starting to get tired of correcting the information over and over again. Everyone is tired of defending the same arguments over and over again.



There is always some new punk who comes into town and says "Draw Mister!" And, we begrudgingly thumb through our old notes and paste them into new blogs.



The problem is the bridge these punks cross over. Where is it? Does it matter? We can do two things. We… Continue

5 Evil and Crazy christian Movements

christianity drives me nuts. I find it to be reprehensible in most aspects but here are a few issues that top my list at the moment. Please feel free to add to the list, and to include islam and any other religion. I found it overwhelming to even get as far as I did. It's rather depressing how evil it all is. See the list at HDC along with links.

Have a great day, my… Continue

Attack on Freedom: Sad Day in the Netherlands



Geert Wilders, a parliament member in the dutch government, is now being prosecuted for speaking out against the fascist ideology of the Koran. It is now illegal to speak negatively about islam which shows how close islam is coming to their goal of world domination. This is particularly scary to me. Islam is a violent, bigoted, damning religion. Islam, I believe, is the most dangerous threat to freedom and the planet. The time to be tolerant is over.

And I Thought Oprah and Dr. Phil Were the Antichrists

I don't believe in the antichrist of course. But parasite rick warren could fit the bill if such a thing existed. You'll find a video of the slimeball himself (so you can see how uncharismatic he is) and more at HDC. A previous post on prayer and a bit of other info on this creep is here… Continue
