The Despicable Reality and Perfidy of the Islamic State

I wouldn’t have believed it, but I’m pissed off about persecuted Christians.  Whoa, you’re saying, Loren’s lost his grip on reality.  No, I haven’t.  I just wonder if you can maintain YOUR grip on your temper, having seen this CBS News 60 Minutes report by Lara Logan.



American Christians make foolish noises about being persecuted.  Iraqi Christians ARE being persecuted for…

A Non-Trivial Question Regarding a Non-Trivial Religion

I have a few questions, none of which are meant to be rhetorical:

  • If Islam demands the death penalty for apostasy, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam says that women must be veiled, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam cannot value women as equals to men, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam cannot tolerate the practice of freedom of speech, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam is determined to dominate the world, why should we…

It seems fair and well researched. Why banned? I don't know.. maybe it hurt someone's feelings..?

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest

Quotation-Leo-Tolstoy-sacrifice-vanity-Meetville-Quotes-138006

For many, many years, I have always found an unending fount of devilish giggles whenever I read sappy church signs. You know, the ones that are thought up by the honorary witty member of the church congregation that plays on puns, abuses homophones, and loves to dabble in sappy poetry attempts. What better way to market a deity than…

Why You Can Be Certain Deities Do Not Exist

Whether you used to believe in Jesus or Yahweh, Mohammed or Allah, Krishna or Zeus, I can assure you that none exist. I will even take you further than that and guarantee they do not exist. It is all about your perception of the concept that a god/goddess is. Not a…

We Are Just Animated Pieces Of Meat

If you haven’t read the recent Daily Mail piece by A.N. Wilson, I would recommend you do so to follow along with what I am about to go on about. Some of you might already be familiar with his emotional appeal drivel for Christ and might be able to save yourself the agony of reading more of his…

Hamza Kashgari: "satanic tweets" result in calls for the death penalty

Until last weekend 23 years old Kashgari Hamza was just a young and upcoming journalist from Saudi Arabia with quite a fan base following him not only in the newspapers but also on twitter. Currently he is a man who has to fear for his life with a saudi government prohibiting all newspapers from publishing any texts by Kashgari. More than 10.000 people on facebook demand his death and it is…

Calls to Behead Indonesian Atheist Alexander Aan

As Dan Barker once formulated



Any belief system that threatens you with (physical) violence is morally bankrupt.

The sad state of muslims (a generalization)

I do ask people to understand the following NOT as an insult but rather as an expression of deep sadness about the current state of things....

Frithjof Schuon once wrote:
"The intellectual - and thereby the rational - foundation of Islam results in the average Muslim having a curious tendency to believe that non-Muslims either know that Islam is the truth and reject it out of pure obstinacy, or else are simply ignorant of it and can be converted by elementary explanations; that…

My Atheism Doesn’t Need Evolution

Atheists are often portrayed as die hard believers in evolution, and atheism is quite often portrayed as being dependent upon believing in the validity of evolution. But you know what? Some people, such as myself, did not need to rely on Darwin to steer our courses off the path of religion and onto the path of reason.

 

Consider:

 

The bible was not created by a god nor inspired by the word of any god. It was written by a number of people who tried…

Apologists of Circumcision

The Columbus, Ohio newspaper, The Republic, just today printed the story Religion: Battle Over Circumcision, describing the battle that is erupting in San Francisco over a November 8 ballot that would ban male circumcision. While much of the article tries to distract readers from the issue by making reference to Foreskin Man and how it incites the anger of religious groups like Jews. I think the real issue is not what the author of “Foreskin Man” is up to, but the fact that there is an…

Religion and "moderates"

I want to tell you all a little story. It involves my nephew, who was around 22 and living in Scotland at the time, where he played in a cricket team. The team was made up of various ethnicities and religions. During an after season party, my nephew happened to mention to one particular young man that he was an atheist. The man he told was a Muslim, around the same age as him, maybe a little younger. He was also supposedly a friend and team mate. So what did my nephew get as a response to this… Continue

Beware of Islam

 

The recent "victory" claimed by the United States government, the killing of Osama Bin Laden, seems a good thing at first. However, it's really just another poke in the eye of this back and forth between the western world and Islam, (or maybe between Christianity and Islam?) A retaliation is sure to follow, that's just the way it works. So while the American people are celebrating in the street, I'd be running for cover.…
