Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper says "Islamicism biggest threat to Canada" & Tony Blair says "Iran is our Real Enemy"

It is refreshing to see that our northern border ally has too come to see the true threat facing humanity in the 21st century. It is also refreshing to see the visionary and bold former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom taking a clear stance against the illegal regime of the Islamic Republic - especially since he has strong influence with the Quartet - I am feeling more and more confident that the international community will soon stand more firmly with the Syrian people…

Pastor Mike is a Back Seat Driver

Disclaimer: I'm a former Christian who is now an atheist. I have nothing against most theists and respect their beliefs - up to the point where they step on mine. However, even in my Christian days I would've been appalled by the hubris of this plan.

Bash atheist I'm overjoyed so many religious people are so protective of my soul that they insist upon preaching to me at every…

The glory of sin!

      Timothy Keller informs us that we can get that true happiness by acknowling that we are sinners! God would then take away that guilt of sin and make us truly happy. We must never tempt Him by sinning, but we'll sin and get that absolution. When bad things happen, we can still have happiness as knowing that He loves and protects us.

The Plan

So enough with the suspense already, here's the first part of my plan:

So I'll fly to Spain in either February or March of 2012, volunteer for about a month, and then bike the pilgrimage trail, the Caminho, or Way of Saint James. I'm preparing for about two months. It'll be an adventure unlike any I've yet done!
Saint James is the patron Saint of travelers.…

Blasphemy is a right (says the UN)

What a lucky day. By chance i found something that obviously escaped my notice before and which i haven't found much reported in the media either.

Already last month the UN issued a statement concerning the freedom of speech in relation with the human rights convention.

 

Here is the good part (emphasis mine):

 

 

48.  Prohibitions of displays of lack of respect for a…

The c-word

I refuse to capitalize christian/christianity (unless it begins a sentence). It’s not that I don’t respect your right to believe as you please, in fact if you are truly a christian I respect your beliefs and would like the same in return. What I don’t respect, and in fact resent, is the level at which christianity is ever increasingly being shoved down the throats of those of us who don’t happen to subscribe.  Christianity is used as a vehicle to dictate cessation of behavior that you… Continue

When the philosophy undergraduates discover god...

This is my very first post on here so be very, very kind.  Maybe even sycophantic if you have it in you… ;-)

I've decided to post this in order to avoid having a drawn out and painful discussion with the original author of a Christian apology which, like arguing with a drunk teenager, is largely pointless and always entirely depressing.

The post in question was from someone called Templestream, a guy who was trolling on Atheist Revolution.  His theory was the typical drivel and…

The Time Has Come: Put catholics in Their Place

On July 1, 2011, Dalton McGuinty, the Premier of Ontario, announced that starting in Spetember, catholic schools would no longer be allowed to prohibit the formation of gay-straight alliances by students. In an address by a Member of Provincial Parliament, Glenn Murray (Toronto Center), read a statement from the Premier during Toronto’s Pride Week. The statement read, “Starting in September, it will be students, not principals or school boards, that will decide whether a school has an LGBT… Continue

Even More catholic Whining

Back on June 13, 2011, I wrote the blog post More catholic Whining, in which I described the situations happening in some States like New York and Illinois, involving certain catholic charities having issues with their states making it illegal to discriminate against straight couples in common law relationships and to discriminate against gay couples when providing fostering and adoption services. Now I thought this story was…

The Pledge of Allegiance Old and New

http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2010/06/23/billboard-campaign-refutes-one-nation-under-god/



While I haven’t seen many billboards across Tennessee that are religious in nature that are surprising, this new campaign in North Carolina is a welcome change. I’m actually surprised this didn’t happen sooner, but I hope this will catch on. The gist is putting up an American flag pattern with… Continue

Harold Camping, Penny Guru of Spiritual Scams or The Emotional Price of a Failed Rapture

I’m an Atheist who sees god. Do laugh, but don’t click away, yet. Seeing or perceiving god is really easy, even for a non-believer. Even in my godfree world, God is a collage of artistic-aesthetic re-presentations, a sensory response to the magnificent beauty of a stunningly decorated church, a life-like statue, a painting, a ritual song or dance, a poem, etc. To me, God exists as an awe inspiring anthropological artifact which can never be fully dead as long as I retain the ability…

The end of the world (This shit's real, y'all!)

I've been doing some research and found that the world actually is coming to an end! Holy bandwagon, Batman!

 

That's right...the planet Earth will possibly end in 4 to 7 1/2 billion years. We're gunna party like it's 19,000,000,99!

 

Assuming our dear home avoids being flung around like a pool ball in the collision between the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies, the leading thought is that the Earth will be sucked into…

Star Wars Is Overrated

Edit: I didn't name this? I are dumb.

Now before you jump down my throat I'm not saying it's bad, the original trilogy is good for the most part but it is not the gold that people seem to view it as. There are many good parts but there are bad parts as well.

I know someone will say in response to some of my criticisms: "in the novelisation ..." I don't care. I doesn't matter what the novelisation says, the movies are what matter, not the novelisations of the movies. Another…

I'm taking my stand against the christians and to lead by example of spreading our words of reason and reality.

 

Christians in general are some of the most scariest people of all the religions on this planet. They force there beliefs on you and if you don't believe them they will beat you, yell at you, and tell you lies to try to scare you into believing what they want you too. Only people who have the brain to think for themselves and make there own opinions are the strong ones because we can think for ourselves. In the words of Corey Taylor "Angels lie to keep control" If you look at most of…

In the Heart of the Culture War

If more proof were needed to show we are in the midst of a culture war in America, take a look at what conservatives are trying to do with women's reproductive rights and science education in American public schools.  Taking advantage of the notoriously short American attention span, dedicated conservatives are plying away at whatever facsimile serves as the…

I wonder if they are willing to give me all their money and assets on May 20th?
