Chapter Seven; DOES ALLAH REALLY CARE? REALLY? part twenty-seven













I must add here the crimes of Muslim men that are being committed against innocent women just because the men think everyone should think the way they do. Though Muslim men make up a small part of most communities in Europe they make up a large part of the men convicted of rape and sexual assault. The men do not feel guilt since they blame the non-Muslim for not…

Charles Chilton Moore: The father of American atheism

In celebration of Freedom of Speech Week (observed October 18-24), I would like to illuminate the life of one of America's first prominent, outspoken atheists, Charles Chilton Moore, a man who was jailed for blasphemy because the sensitive Bible Belt dwellers of his time just couldn't stomach a little competition.



When one considers prominent United States atheists, depending on the social circles with which one regularly associates, the list is likely to be…

Freedom of Oppression

The creator of the Draw Mohammed Day, Molly Norris, has been driven into hiding after the FBI accessed the death threats against her by Mulsims, and recommended she go into hiding.


Norris has taken the FBIs adivce and has gone ghost on her own dime - the government didn't even offer witness protection.


So what does this mean? It means the Islamic concept of the Dhimmi has been accepted by the American government. People like Norris are second…

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

When two adolescent owls are relocated, they are faced with a choice: go along with it, or do the right thing. Drawing from the great stories of yore, the animated Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is an aesthetic wonderment that captured my attention and used the occasional depth of plot to hold me tight.



The cynical Kludd (Ryan Kwanten), his cheerful brother Soren (Jim Sturgess), and their freakishly adorable little sister Egaltine (Adreinne DeFaria) live nestled safely… Continue

This is America!

I don't know the ngenral opinion on the ground zero "mosque" here because I haven't been as active as I should be but I know at least 1 (thunderfoo at youtube) atheist has used the argument.



This is not Saudi Arabia this is America! The A in USA doesn't mean Arabia, it means America!

What am I talking about? Among the pathetic arguments against the "mosque" (its a cultural center you ignoramuses) the bigoted idiots spout out is "they don't allow churches in… Continue

Rant: Whats the Meaning and Purpose of Meaning and Purpose?

Many theists say that with out god life has no meaning and purpose, we atheists say that with out an afterlife life has more meaning and we make out own purpose, they reply with "but its not objective", we point out that objective meaning and purpose are impossible. Well here is a new question: Whats the meaning and purpose of meaning and purpose? Do happy people give a shit… Continue

i've started a series on early church history on youtube

it's called "shady church history" and i base it on my background in classics and early medieval history.



i haven't used my youtube channel in this way before, so i'm not sure how it's gonna be received. (probably just ignored, as there are a lot of good videos made from atheist angles out there, lol.)



anyways, i have 2 episodes finished so far. the first is an introduction to the series, the second deals with lies propagated by the church and how one in particular led to… Continue

A history of Life and the Universe Part 1: Before the Before

Its a question that people have grappled with for millennia: Where did the universe come from? People came up with creation myths to answer it but didn’t have any concrete answers and its still the same today. While we have strong and well supported theories to explain things all the way back to 10-34 seconds after the big bang but from before moment zero to then is still a mystery.

So the question still remains but that doesn’t mean there are not possible answers.



But wait,… Continue

Ever wonder what will happen to your pets after the Rapture?

Cross-posted from my blog.



My grandmother is a huge fan of the 'Left Behind' books. I find them to be generally distasteful, but interesting in concept. The question of what the rest of us would do if some significant portion of the population was 'gone' (abducted by aliens, turned into zombies, killed by a plague, wiped out in a war,… Continue

How many times has the world ended so far, exactly?

Which Founding Father will the Texas Eduation Agency Axe Next?

Contrary to popular opinion I don’t hate Christians. That I am an atheist is true enough. But, just because I choose to live a life without gods does not mean that I hate those who choose to live according to the will of their imaginary friend. It’s not the Christians that I hate, but rather a large portion of their agendas that cause me to take umbrage. Think of my attitude as an atheist…

Crimes are wrong... unless they are made in the name of God, right?

(Originally posted in Su Nombre en Vano)



Don't you love it when you get to see mainstream Christian's true colors? Don't you feel good to see that those who brag about loving the neighbor are just as, or even more bigoted than the average person? Isn't it reassuring that we are in the right path?



So, some days ago, this billboard was put up:…

The meaning of life...

I've always said that there is reality, and perception. Reality is. Perception is just our animal brains working to understand reality as we can conceive of it. Now the great mistake that many people make is thinking that their perception of reality is what reality is. But perception can be wrong, reality can't be.


So here is my perception of the world... We are a spinning rock with a staggering combination of factors that has led to life's easy flourishing.…

Goodbye Dad

My father is dying. He is dying but he is happy. He will be 80 in October and he may make it that far, though we are not sure. He is in pain and he has been struggling for many years with breathing and chest pain as well as pain in his legs.

But I do not want to dwell on the pain. I think there are many women who think of their fathers as heroes. I know this is true for me. When I was little I wanted to be just like him and one would often…
