Witches were not the only Disney characters to be executed in the colonies of the New World. It seems that even men suffered from sexual repression, so Zoophiles and "buggers" were also executed. Well, there are maybe two accounts of women convicted of bestiality. I say "convicted of," not "guilty of." I hear the epithet for these men was "Pigman." Maybe they were worried that the outcome would be… Continue

Birds of Paradise form a great evidence of evolution. The mystery behind their awesome beauty is the process of evolution. The write-up - The Exquisite Birds of Paradise – History and Mystery Deciphered!! - adidarwinian answers the question that why the history of the Birds of Paradise is considered a mystery?

Beck goes and makes a comparison between what appears to me to be an ill-cast Satan character in the History Channel series, "The Bible" and Barack Obama. Here's a side-by-side:
From Beck's perspective, this was just another opportunity — he doesn't really pass up any —… Continue

Science is not a subject that is often pushed in the African American community except during black history month when the same scientists of the 20th century and earlier are trotted out again and again to the point that they have lost their meaning other than as place holders. With exception of Neil deGrasse Tyson, most African Americans would be hard pressed… Continue

In today's installment of this new episodic essay, I harangue readers with some thoughts on what I'll call "existential anarchy" from an angry, atheistic point of view. I want to consider the roots of two ideas:
A-theos: without gods.
An-archos: without rules.
Both words are defined by what they lack. Without the missing subject, each object would be meaningless, just as "no-thing" is ill-defined without the implicit missing subject -- the… Continue

Transhumanism is not related with any religion category as polytheist, monotheist, or non-theist. Religion is not the problem of metahumanism.
The religion is the problem of the human being category.
Metahumanism (whether as transhumanism or posthumanism) is meta-human the same as in the other conceptual areas.
Metahumanism category do not have to be busy of human beings’ problems. It is human beings’ problem.
Human beings will… Continue

Religion seems to have played an important role in government throughout history. As we have seen through religion through many years, it has been an effective tool to “teach” and to bestow obedience among people. Religion has been so good at this in fact, that it is not uncommon to see absolute obedience among avid people who participate among religion. Religion throughout the years has avidly taught not to question much, to work hard, and to suffer, with the hope that you may one day be… Continue

Hi everyone - I'm just starting out at atheist nexus so I thought I'd post links to my blog (Holy Blasphemy) and my book (Jesus Potter Harry Christ). I'm doing my phd in literature, so my blog basically deals with literary theory, comparative religious… 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

Welcome to your Atheist Christmas Podcast for the Year of Our Overlords, 2010. This year, I'm looking back at Christmas past. "Your past" you ask? No, long past. Looooong past. Go back, back, back before that cloudy April when some guy who may have been named Jesus but decidedly didn't perform any miracles and wasn't born of a virgin and may or may not have been a prophet or a rabbi, and may or may not… Continue

I am surprised by the heat in discussions about the Bible, even amongst atheists. Questions about myth and history in the Old Testament and Jesus as a historical or mythical character resulted in people slinging references from their favorite experts, back and forth. I could see the weaknesses of these arguments; but, it took awhile for me to formulate an explanation for why everyone was a… Continue

i was just watching this video on youtube, "the hidden jesus" where a christian theologian explores other religions with stories similar to the jesus story.
what got my attention was in part six where he makes the claim that "for the last 2000 years christianity and judaism have been at war over jesus. why? because of what some consider christianity's biggest lie."…

not sure anyone is interested in this or not, but i stumbled across a multi-episode documentary from canada on the inquisition. it's kinda low budget, but still interesting.
the first episode is a little slow, but episode 2 and 3 are good.
it really gets me pissed off at points... torturing and killing people for nothing.
and occasionally there is a catholic priest who makes some comment like "well, we have to take these things in context of the society at that… Continue

it's called "shady church history" and i base it on my background in classics and early medieval history.
i haven't used my youtube channel in this way before, so i'm not sure how it's gonna be received. (probably just ignored, as there are a lot of good videos made from atheist angles out there, lol.)
anyways, i have 2 episodes finished so far. the first is an introduction to the series, the second deals with lies propagated by the church and how one in particular led to… Continue

Free Speech and Stealth Evangelism
If you haven't seen this it is worth noting that a slick production called "Birth of Freedom" is being shown on some public television stations. This sectarian slaughter of both American and World History is appalling for its inaccuracies and not-so-veiled attempt to paint America once again as a Christianist nation. I would recommend… Continue

I published this piece at my blog and thought you all might appreciate it.
As you may know, my universe has no room for the possibility of a god. And in general I don't care what other people think and believe as long as their suppositions and practices don't affect me in any way. You can believe in fairies and unicorns and believe you have to bay at the moon 2 times a night to stop from… Continue

One of the innate human characteristics that separates us from other animals on earth is our insatiable need to find out "why". Our natural need to seek for things like food and a mate is shared with other animals, but the questioning of why things happen is a unique to humans. It is ingrained in us, from the first day we start searching… Continue
