Romney, Ryan and the Devil

Romney and Ryan believing in a god would be nothing remarkable: but is it not the case that both believe in a real, active, in-this-world Devil named Satan ?  Or am I confusing theMormon cult with the Moonie cult?

Most believers in radical Islam also believe not simply in the reality of evil, but the reality of a personality named "Satan" or some equivalent.

Motto: if there is no God, hope eternal that there is no Devil

The Origins of our Morality

A common argument among theists and atheists centres around the nature of morality. We can all claim to have an idea of what is moral, but we often fail to agree why we think it is so. Many theists would argue that we are bound to objective moral standards which are immutable, regardless of perspective, opinion, or circumstance. An atheist may argue that our sense of morality is grounded in little more than this.



We could argue that determining which party is correct, rests on… Continue

Hell is not moral

When a theist starts to babble on about how god is moral there are a lot of ways to shut them up. One of my favorites is to talk about hell. at a first glance hell seems like jail, a place where evil people go. But when you think about it you can make hell seem not moral without even using the bible agents the… Continue

Since When Did We Require Faith To Wish Well Upon Others?

In light of Chris Hitchens' bout with oesophageal cancer a proclaimed Christian fundamentalist took it upon himself to write a rather touching blog post in which he claims to pray for Hitchens' recovery. First of all, I believe that it should have remained a private matter as it was obviously politically motivated, but that's beside the point. At one point in his post he stated: "I know the irony is not lost on [Hitchens] that the same faith he so

ruthlessly savaged is the same faith that… Continue

Children Good Without God

A concerned prospective father sent me a message asking,

"I'd like to learn something as a good father from you. Considering that you're an atheist, how can teach your children how to behave in good manner and ethic. Because when I was a kid, my parents used to tell me "Be good boy and tidy your room then God will bless you...etc." I don't want to say these words to my children as a prospective father. And i wonder what do you…

CRACKING UP WITH THE CRACKER WHACKER

PZ Myers has done it again. He has quite a habit of doing it.



A recent entry in his Blog is not only funny in its own right but has resulted in a lengthy and highly hilarious interchange among blog followers. I would strongly recommend that you find an hour or so to devour it. I suggest that you refrain from drinking while doing so. It is dangerous to your health to drink and… Continue

Estadísticas rompen la absurda visión del "ateo inmoral"

Justo hablaba con un cristiano en un foro por internet, cuando al parecer pensó mencionar estadísticas le daría la razón a su creencia. Mencionó unas estadísticas sobre divorcio y suicidio (donde al parecer los ateos vamos en la cabecera).. ¿dió fuentes? Ninguna en lo absoluto, así que bien pudo ser un invento, si algo aprendí en la internét es a desconfiar de las cosas sin fuente, ya que bien pueden ser inventadas o sacadas de contexto... como las citas de Albert Einstein usadas ingenuamente… Continue
