How to get through to believers

Understanding causality, who can justify condemning believers for believing, since they were after all, shaped, molded, and ultimately conditioned to believe just as non-believers where conditioned to not believe? Yet, we just can’t stand by watching them fritter their lives away being motivated, moved, and ultimately being hijacked by this contagious and dangerous god meme. Why can’t we? Because to survive as a species we need to acknowledge and address reality. We can’t just stand by, because… Continue

AAI 2008 "Unsinkable Atheism" slide show

Don't push your beliefs on me!

How many of us have heard our friends and relatives say those few words: Don't push your beliefs on me? I can not count the times I have heard from people that their biggest complaint about religion, any religion, is when the practitioners push their beliefs. This can manifest in a look, a snide comment, or the phrase, "holier than thou" being tossed around.



Sometimes, the person who is feeling pressured is the same religion as the person doing the pressuring. A believer may chastise… Continue

Is God Pro Life?

If there is no god…ohnoes!

Fundamentalists news websites, how I love thee, especially WorldNutDaily. WND never ceases to provide amusement in the form of fundie logic and wacky advertisements. Claiming itself as a ‘news source’ this beyond right-wing rag makes Fox news look like the Disney Channel. I used to get pissed at the B.S. they sling but I’ve come to embrace it for what it really is; satirical humor. Some people can take this stuff with a grain of salt and some can’t, so steer clear if you’re easily aggravated by… Continue

Atheism Tapes - interviews





In these off-the-record interviews, neurologist turned playwright, filmmaker and self-described atheist Jonathan Miller filmed conversations with six of today’s leading men of letters and science: biologist and New York Times best-selling author Richard Dawkins, philosophers Daniel Dennett and Colin McGinn, distinguished… Continue

To Clarify My Position

I had a discussion with a friend the other day about religion - surprise, eh? - and in the wake of that I should probably briefly clarify my views.



I would love religion to vanish, but that's not a reasonable thing to want or strive for. I really don't mind religion as long as it doesn't affect the outside world. My main issue, which I think a few people have misunderstood (probably because I ramble and rant) is that religion isn't open to question and criticism, seemingly because… Continue

Keep It Inside Your Head Or Your Head Is Forfeit (Bitch)

Further to my note of a few days ago, about the Sikh girl who managed to get her personal delusions championed over mere secular beliefs.



It occurs to me that the position religion occupies within the British judicial system – or seeks to occupy, with a great deal of success – is similar to the position it seeks to occupy in science. Fundamentalist religion challenges a varied range of scientific theories, but the alternative hypotheses supplied often function as refutations of… Continue

Religion: Removes 100% Of All Known Consequences

This just in: the world is stupid. Again.



A Sikh girl, attending a school with a no jewellery policy, was excluded for wearing a religious bracelet. The report on this, which was dripping with shots of the girl staring bleakly through windows, detailed how she was winning support and legal advice on the issue.



To me, it seems reasonably simple. No jewellery. Religious jewellery is still just jewellery, worn for entirely personal reasons. See my rant on Secular\Non Secular… Continue

Why Are Religious And Secular Fashions Different?

I’ve been thinking about some stuff recently. It’s sort of interesting, but hardly very original. Stick around, though – this will likely anger or confuse you.



I work in Vodafone now, which as you may know is a nest of fouls. My job so far has required me to stand at the door and apprehend all comers for the purposes of selling them a Nokia N95. This means I see a lot of people per day. Some of them are hilarious. Here’s some examples:



The utterly punked-up guy who had… Continue

Further Christian Responses To My Responses To Their Responses

My atheist jaunt on Facebook stirred some feathers, it seems. I got some drunken heckling for it from someone that used to be a friend, and since as far as my ideology is concerned I REALLY care about this, I'm going to respond. I don't give a shit if you don't like it. You know who you is.



Firstly, issues were taken with me even having the audacity to argue with christians and what they believe. Why can't I just leave them alone, eh? Why can't I keep my mouth shut?



Ok . .… Continue

Top fundamentalist\creationist Christian responses to science, intellectualism, reason and empirical evidence. These are only common responses that have arisen within the short time I’ve really started using the internet to rape fundamentalists; there are, of course, countless other hilarious things that come up in conversation, and countless other hilarious proofs against God. This is a very small starting point, but it amused me.

The Evasive God

If extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, then how is it that a single word which represents such an extraordinary claim has the ability to survive for such a long time without extraordinary evidence to support it’s implications? Simple, never clearly define the word to begin with, and allow it’s hosts to adapt it’s definition to the environment. Allow it’s authors to change the definition and characteristics of the word at their will. Allow it to be redefined over and over again… Continue

When gods make bears attack! 2Kings:23-25

I just discovered a wonderful short story from that bible book. It's about a bald man who gets made fun of by some teenagers, then curses them by praying to god to have them tore limb from limb by BEARS!



23 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” 24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two… Continue

I Hate This

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.17



I have a bad memory, but this is the best I can remember.



So today I went to lunch with a few people from work, and everything was going fine until the way home. It turned into a typical "Christian-who's-never-met-an-atheist" conversation. I was riding with two female co-workers, Mary, who is a Deist and Annie, a Christian. Mary mentioned something about her bad luck, and said it was a bad sign "if you believe in… Continue
