An imaginary interaction with my mother in which she poses the point "I'm at the end of my life when I must look forward to meeting my maker and going to heaven, and you want to take that away from me?". In my mind I feel her agony at the thought of it all being a lie. I know this pain because I've felt it myself. It's not all that dissimilar from the feeling I had when my father came clean about Santa Claus. It's a let down to know it was just a big scam.
In my mind I attempt to… Continue

I have a lot of time to blog and think being in Egypt for the next few days. There isn't much to do here and between the call to prayer going off about every 3 hours, and people all around be saying "inshallah" (god willing) and elhumdallah (thank god) every 17 seconds I remember how much I hate theism. So it seems the god of the Bible and Qu'ran did everything in his power to hurt humanity. It's almost like he was auditioning for the role of Satan. Between spreading plagues, wiping out… Continue

I remember one of my many steps towards atheism was taken when I was at school. It was in history, when we leant about Custer's last stand and the events leading up to it - and finally we arrived at something called the ghost dance
- a ritual steeped in cultish logic (and unsurprisingly toxic Christian Missionaries ) seeking divine intervention from a messianic figure , the ressurection of the dead to restore the nation,… Continue

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)
As an atheist I don't pray. To me it's no different from talking to the air, or to the ceiling if I'm laying on my bed. Since I know it makes no difference in this world, I don't give up to such wishful thinking. However, I have friends who do pray. I think we all have. One of them is a pastor, a really nice guy who for me is kind of hard to see as the… Continue

It's pretty sad that good people rely on a
absentee sky daddy. Many good christians pray for husbands to stop
cheating, as Elizabeth did (her husband left with the other women) Pray
for cancer to be healed (she died from it) At the end she even changed
her perception of god that she would live again to see dead family
members (which she wont) It is all a big hoax. very sad. … Continue

Holy cow — the atheists are proselytizing! I unveil Connecticut Valley Atheists' latest offering to the Vernon Green and demonstrate how the myths of religion and Santa Claus teach believers to behave in order to earn a reward, while atheism offers the only path to true, unrewarded morality in this week's CVA Vlog.…

Other post are available and vary from informative to rants to arguments on facebook with my brother the preacher. So here is one I hope you like:
Religion is the process in which believing in something blindly is expected because someone said you should… Continue

I couldn't help myself last week, when a man was coming through the attraction i worked at, at ScreamPark and yelled "Do you think God would approve of this?" I stopped for a sec, looked back over at him, using his phone to get through, pussy. So i just walked up behind him and said "Of course not, thats why i asked the magical fairy. He said go for it, so im with him now!" And just walked off, he got so pissed that he went to find me, screaming "God will not forgive that comment, he will… Continue

When many people hear about things like genetic modification, geoengineering, etc, many scream “Your playing god!” Well in a sense we are gods. Look at us, look at what we have done, look at what we can do. We can communicate with people on the other side of the world with small devices we hold to our heads, we can heat food by putting in in a metal box, we can cure diseases that have plagued humanity for thousands of years, we can build buildings hundreds of stories tall, we can fly faster… Continue

Many theists say that with out god life has no meaning and purpose, we atheists say that with out an afterlife life has more meaning and we make out own purpose, they reply with "but its not objective", we point out that objective meaning and purpose are impossible
. Well here is a new question: Whats the meaning and purpose of meaning and purpose? Do happy people give a shit… Continue

This is an extinction to a comment (3 actually due to the 500 character comment limitation) I am made to this video

Turns out I'm not the only one who thinks that one of the great injustices of the Christian religion is its portrayal of Satan as The Greatest Evil, which isn't even warranted by biblical standards. This week, I read these two essays:

Immediately following on from my last blog
, about how I'd posted a video on Facebook about Homosexuality and Christianity, received one angry message from a Christian who promptly de-friended me (how shall I ever live with myself ? ? ? ) - someone began commenting on the video.
Turns out - as you'll see - he's something of a spiritual, new age kind with a penchant for CRAZY and lists, LOTS of lists… Continue

My seventh book, Life After Faith,
will be published in the next few weeks. Based on almost a half-century as an insider, it tells the story of my emergence from super-natural faith to practice a down-to-earth kind of "natural spirituality." This will not please extremists on either side of the divide!
Some atheists will throw garbage and some people of faith will throw prayers, but it's a personal story of leaving faith, ordination as a Protestant Minister… Continue
