South Park Warns Muslim to Back Off!

Yesterday was the much anticipated conclusion to South Park’s 200th episode which has been causing a great deal of controversy. While the episode didn’t depict the Islamic prophet Mohammad and did what seemed like a major cop-out in revealing that the bear-suited depiction of Mohammad was actually Santa Claus, this episode contained a coded warning to the Muslim world. …

Warning to RevolutionMuslim.com

It is pretty well known that Muslim fundamentalists freak out when anyone criticizes their religion or even depicts an image of their prophet Mohammad. In fact, Muslims are even known to get violent about it. Their severe reactions to such trivial things have frightened the media and the entertainment industry.

PS This is the most dangerous article I have ever written.

What evidence Muslims use to prove that Islam is true



I have mentioned many times here on Atheist Nexus about the social pressures to conform, and the cult-like nature of tradionalist Islam (isolationist, puritanical, exclusivist, controlling etc), and the many mind-control techniques employed by the religious people to ensure they retain power and the religion survives. However, underlying all this is the assumption that Muslims make that Islam is 'the true…

Teenage Muslim Girls Wearing the Veil

Muslim teenage girls are trained from an early age to wear the veil (niqab or niqaab).




Jameah Girls Academy is a school in Leicester, UK where Muslim girls study both the compulsory national curriculum and Islamic teachings. The sect of Islam followed is Deobandi, which is also…

There is the Taliban and then there are these people

There was that video of an underage girl being flogged in Swat Pakistan for allegedly stepping outside the house without the escort of an immediate family member. This of course was nothing compared to the countless other incidents and videos of beheadings, summary executions and other acts of atrocity committed at the hands of the warriors of Islam.

Recently, local…

Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao were all atheists, and look what they did!

This is a frequent and tiresome ad hominem frequently resorted to by religious fundamentalists fast approaching total cognitive surrender, and I'd like to include a complete rebuttal here before I forget it.



To begin with I'm going to leave Hitler to one side and examine our other three lumninaries. What did Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Tse Tung all have in common apart from their atheism? Anyone? They all had a fanatical devotion to collectivism.



In short all three… Continue

Islamic Supreme Council issues Fatwah In Canada

I never thought I'd be Happy to hear about the issuing of a Fatwah but this is a good one :-)



The following Fatwah was issued by 19 Canadian and 1 American Imam(s) today:



"In our view, these attacks are evil, and Islam requires Muslims to stand up against this evil,"



The imams also said it is a duty of every Muslim in Canada and the U.S. to safeguard the two countries.



"They must expose any person, Muslim or non-Muslim, who would cause harm to fellow… Continue

The farce that is the Hajj festival

A few days ago Muslims the world over celebrated the Eid-ul-Adha marking the end of the Hajj festival. The festival also commemorates prophet Abraham's offer to slaughter his son, Ismail, to comply with Allah's commands given to him in his dreams.





Firstly, coming from a religion that proclaims itself as the monologue of peace, it is obviously quite absurd for its followers to be celebrating an… Continue

Muslim academics and students are turning against Darwin’s theory

Evolution or any scientific consensus that challenges established conventions and dogmas is bound to face resistance in any society. In the US for example, there is a raging war of words between creationists or intelligent design proponents on the one side and the overwhelming majority of the scientific community, who argue for evolution; on the other side. In Europe evolution, as a scientific explanation of how we and other living beings got to where we are and how life got its complexity, is… Continue

Democracy is a problem (?), Islam a solution (!?)

One of the many views rampant in Afghanistan's educational institutions

Islam provides Afghans, specially the disillusioned and somewhat conspiracy minded youth, with the perfect placebo effect. Not that Islam has had any admirable track record in providing solutions to problems or at the very least bringing people together, but what is important to these people is the…

Arab Freethinker of the Day - al-Ma'arri





Muslims are stumbling, Christians all astray

Jews wildered, Magians far on error's way

We mortals are composed of two great schools

Enlightened knaves or else religious fools




By fearing whom I trust I find my way

To truth; by trusting wholly I betray

The trust of wisdom; better far is doubt

Which brings the false into the light of day…

The Ideas and Influence of al-Ghazzali

Following my introduction (2 paragraphs) are selected excerpts from Wikipedia's article on al-Ghazzali. Many historians, Muslim or not, believe al-Ghazzali is the most influential Muslim since the Prophet Muhammad. He single-handedly shifted early Arab ideals away from Greek philosophy to orthodox Islam. Despite being a scientist, philosopher and innovator himself, Ghazzali's prolific and influential writings heralded the end… Continue

Play your gods right

My pun muscles are letting me down if that's the best I can come up with. The New Humanist's "Zeal or no Zeal?" is perfect, and there must be other religion/game-show wordplay possibilities out there. I'll keep trying.



The point is, people in Turkey are going to be trying to convert some atheists on a TV panel show, by the clever application of flawless logic and the careful presentation of substantial evidence… Continue

Truth: still scarier than fiction

I suppose I've never really written about this before, because it seems like too obvious a point to need addressing. But people do keep making these same tired old arguments, displaying a very tedious lack of imagination or intellectual curiosity.

In Somalia, A Return to the Dark Ages

Doing exactly the opposite of what is reasonable, newly elected President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed caved into terrorists demands and announced Somalia would return to sharia, or Islamic law. Islamist worldwide get a boost as it becomes apparent they can push around some governments, and command failed states. Is the world heading for a new dark age? More.

Absence from the e-world!

I have been neglecting the e-world for a while. Things have been pretty crazy with me, and I'm plain lazy. I guess I needed a break. Plus I got a new xbox 360 so I've been playing video games like crazy when I should be studying for my PPL test.



Anyway, I'm on the Council of Ex Muslims forum and there's this really nationalist sounding dude on it. His view is that all Muslims (moderate or not) should be deported to Muslim countries. Wow. That's a pretty stupid thing to say on… Continue

Religion wants to be atheist/secular....?

It seems to me that the religious people, the thinking religious people who attempt to argue for their religion, do so by convincing the unbelieving listener that he is just like them. He begins to speak of the "mercy" of his religion, he speaks of how "Moses" was concerned with mankind, or that Muhammad freed the women of Arabia.

My point is: if you really believe that Islam or Judaism is REALLY the right way, then why would you apologise for it by attempting to adjust to a more secular… Continue

More discussions with a Muslim...

Yes...I'm posting about this Muslim dude I've been 'debating' with...



I give up arguing with this guy now even though I've been told on here to enjoy the debate, these are the remains of the debate...or at least his response, which has turned from wannabe intellectual debate to insulting:
