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…Continue
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.Continue
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.
As His own son, [amongst His others who had children by…Continue
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…

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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…
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…Continue
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…Continue

Mark your calendar because May 21 is Judgement Day!
Another wacky bunch is going around preaching the world will end this year. Here's the link
I wonder if they are willing to give me all their money and assets on May 20th?
