Quantum Mechanics

Quantum Mechanics, which is the study of the smallest elements and forces of matter and how they react and interact and create all that we know

All things are made up of Atoms both living and nonliving all matter is made up of Atoms. But now we know that an Atom isn’t the smallest thing in our universe of reality. We also know that electromagnetic force, or light hold electrons and protons together in Atom and which hold Atoms together to make molecules.

At it’s must basic…

Is This Really Necessary?

God Fearing Guy
IN GOD WE TRUST - This religious display is quite appropriate and didn't need an act of Congress to do.

I'm an Atheist, but I like most Theists. Really, I do. Admittedly I don't agree with them, but I'm also…

Opium of the People

Until a few days ago, I always interpreted Marx's famous quote "Religion is the opium of the people" as a metaphor.  



A few days ago, I changed my mind.   I was sitting at a bus stop and got into talking with the woman sitting next to me, who in less than a minute presented herself as a Jehova's witness.   Usually I avoid religious discussion as a completely futile attempt to get through the believers' delusion.   They believe, what they feel a…

christian propaganda

   Hello fellow free thinkers, I was recently at a local muncipal government health clinic. There on a stand with information purtaining to the clinic, and it's services was a stack of issues from a local, "community monthly publication". The title is: "Changing Times", and evident by the cross accompaning the title, and the content within; this is a christian publication! This clinic is run by the local municipality, which in turn is part of the state's department of health & hospitals,…

Pat Robertson is Divorced From Reality

Pledges

Since my upcoming backwards pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago is as symbolic as it is going to be painful on the feet, I've began to wonder if I should see if anyone would be interested in pledging money per kilometer walked which could then be donated to the Ayaan Hirshi Ali Foundation or some other brilliant organization. Any thoughts? I've never done a pledge type thing and don't know if it'd be more work than it's worth, but then again I've never walked a thousand miles between two… Continue

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.

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

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):

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
