Atheist Women: Why Are They More In The Boardrooms Than Heard In The Streets?

index Everywhere I scroll, I find many atheist and secular minded individuals with my same mindset. No God. No religion. Acceptance for all. On the television, it is always the same faces of Dawkins, Harris, Silverman, and occasionally Cupp. I run into the same issues on blog sites like Patheos, Freethought, Secular Coalition, and American Atheists. Same male faces and the dash of a female…

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.…

Charles Bradlaugh -19th Century Freethinker and Activist

Charles Bradlaugh (1833 – 1891) was one of Britain (and the 19th century’s) leading atheist and secular voices.  He also practiced law  and tried a hand at politics. Bradlaugh  was, like Robert Ingersol, famous in his time, but is less known now. Below is part of what wrote about him on the Secular Perspectives blog…

Whitman: A Freethinker's Prophet

This has just been posted on the Beyond God site.

Walt Whitman continues to impress me as a wildly reasonable (yes, an odd pairing) voice for those who are exploring the wilderness out beyond the supernatural ideologies and theologies of distraction. He is a kind of Freethinker’s Prophet (kind of). Here are a few lines from a remarkable, overlooked or underappreciated section of…

Atheist Pocket Debater - new app for iphone!

Excerpt: Atheist Pocket Debater
The Atheist Power Statement
"The Fact is, there is no scientific evidence for any god whatsoever. This is a strong and acceptable reason for non-belief. The world works exactly the way we would expect it to work, if there were no god. We have never witnessed a supreme being intervening and/or breaking the laws of nature for…

God's Divine Plan?

Think of the most hideous thing that has ever happened to a single individual or nation. A woman raped and then savagely murdered right in front of her three children, for example. If a "God" really didn't want that to happen, it wouldn't have, would it? Ditto when it comes to the Holocaust and the massive death and suffering caused by "natural" calamities - in fact, all of mankind's suffering

When "the…

Freethought Quotations

“Fear believes—courage doubts. Fear falls upon the earth and prays—courage stands erect and thinks. Fear retreats—courage advances. Fear is barbarism—courage is civilization. Fear believes in witchcraft, in devils and in ghosts. Fear is religion, courage is science.”

FAN MADE VIDEO FOR FREETHOUGHT M.C. SONG,"MODERN HUMANOLOGY" - 2009

Thank you to the fan in Germany - who has chosen to have their name withheld - for using my pictures and creating this wonderful masterpiece. BRILLIANT!!

By the way, that verse WAS done intentional; I did not mess up and there was no edting error. That verse goes: ...."wake up and enjoy my life each and every single day; said I'm gonna wake up and enjoy my life every and each single day...(that's my own Humanology...)". I "flipped" the words, just because it sounded… Continue

Arab Freethinker of the Day - al-Ma'arri





Muslims are stumbling, Christians all astray

Jews wildered, Magians far on error's way

We mortals are composed of two great schools

Enlightened knaves or else religious fools




By fearing whom I trust I find my way

To truth; by trusting wholly I betray

The trust of wisdom; better far is doubt

Which brings the false into the light of day…

Pew Poll: 10.3% of American Adults are Freethinkers

The U.S. Religious Landscape Survey



Here's the most comprehensive poll on religion in the U.S. I could find. Note that freethinkers, at 10.3%, represent more than twice the number of non-Christian religious adherents. The 10.3% number is derived by subtracting the 5.8%…

The Problem of Matthew 19:28

It is a glaring “error” that should make even the most rabid religious right Christian fundamentalist wince with discomfort. Moreover, it illustrates yet another example of a New Testament writer failing to give full thought to what he is writing. In other words, failing to see things through to their logical conclusion. Due to the uncritical, unquestioning mind-set of Christian fundamentalists, however, this glaring incongruity continually fails to be held up to rigid scrutiny it so rightly… Continue

The Atheist and the Good Christian

Hi everyone,



This being my first blog-post on A/N, I thought I'd address an issue that vexes me to no end: How to deal with the "Good Christian". In carpet-bombing the religious right we non-theists, try as we might to avoid it, end up inflicting collateral damage to Christians who, otherwise, lead exemplary lives. That just gnaws at me to no end. But I suppose the fact that I feel bad doing so is a 'good' thing from a moral point standpoint. But if you think me too weak-kneed, think… Continue

Becoming a Freethinker and a Scientist

Becoming a Freethinker and a Scientist



When I was a fairly precocious young man I became thoroughly impressed with the futility of the hopes and strivings that chase most men restlessly through life. Moreover, I soon discovered the cruelty of that chase, which in those years was much more carefully covered up by hypocrisy and glittering words than is the case today. By the mere existence of his stomach everyone was condemned to participate in that chase. The…

Quotes for Americans from the Founding Fathers

America was not founded as a christian nation. I've gathered some quotes on my regular blog from several of the Founding Fathers to help fellow Americans refute that false argument.

Selected quotes are from:

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) played a major role in the American Revolution. Atheist.

John Adams (1735-1826) The second President of the United States.

Thomas Jefferson… Continue
