'Does the fear ever go away?' and 'Being and atheist in Brazil'

So, today I was talking to some of my christian friends and religion came up. One of my friends didn't know for sure my position about it and when it became clear that I'm an atheist, she said she was sad for me, and it made me think of my time as a believer, especially when she asked me why I didn't believe, she said "Min, it is so easy, you just gotta believe"... But really, when I was a believer it wasn't "just believing", no. I felt guilty about things that I know now are perfectly…

God or religion

While there is no god running our lives, there is religion. I keep coming back to this thought. What churches tell us and what they do is something. There is a real big something, it's not nothing. So while god does not exist, religion is something that does exist by their belief. They make something out of nothing.?

A section from Atheist Story

A little section on my next story. Enjoy!


“I understand you have been asking questions about the ‘Unbelievers’,” The Grand Father asks me.





I nod my head, “Yes, I have,” and as an afterthought I add, “Grand Father.”

The United States was not "Founded" as a "Christian Country"

I am an American.

On top of that I am also a Texan.

I was born in Texas and can trace my family coming to Texas in the 1850’s.

Most of my family came from the United Kingdom. The rest came from Europe.

Some have been in the United States since the early 1700’s. Some fought in the American Revolution against England.

For what I can tell, they all were “Christians” of some sort or another.

I am an Atheist.

I’ve been an Atheist since the age of six.…

The Infidel Guy

I had a great time talking with Reggie and Val on The Infidel Guy tonight. We had a whole list of questions to talk about but only got through about half of them. I had the opportunity to really discuss Recovering from Religion on the show. Hope we get some interest from new areas.

Harrassing letters from a guy who "cares."

This guy has been emailing me for 3 months. I started ignoring him a long time ago. He wanted to be on my show, because he is a "deacon in his church." I found he had nothing more to say, no topic, no expertise other than this church status. I declined his offer, because he only offered to talk about his "theories why atheists disbelieve in Christ." So that was that, right?



In later emails I told him we had little more to say on the subject. I was polite and conversational, and… Continue

The Prejudice of Christians

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

Lincoln Nebraska

Jason Frye is putting on a regional Freethinker conference in Lincoln, NE Aug. 14-15. I will be speaking on my book and some of our Recovering From Religion (RR) facilitators will be presenting on RR. This is an exciting opportunity to challenge folks in the Nebraska-Iowa area to come out and let the fundamentalists know that we are here to stay. I hope you will help us get the word out. I'll post more information as soon as I have it.

Chariots of Iron

My interview on Chariots of Iron Podcast came out today. I talk about The God Virus and Recovering from Religion. Eli, Mark and Lamar really did their homework and had great questions. I think we explored the Civil Religion idea better in this forum than in any others I have done. Having three guys interview is a trip. It was more like we were all sitting around the table with a beer and having some good laughs. The interview portion is in the last half of the podcast.



Here is the… Continue

Letters From Earth, by Mark Twain

I can honestly say that there was a time when I was not certain whether or not I was Agnostic or Atheist. I study theology in Rome...which is very Biased to say the least. I wanted to fully understand this God person. I read the Bible, Koran, The Old testament and the New one too. I read and studied the Mormons and Jehovah Witness'. I learned as much as humanly possible about the eastern religions such as Hindi and Buddhism. The company I work for outsources to India and I work with a barrage… Continue
