I am dissapointed in you

This is a past post from my blog which is inteded for atheist and theist alike, so don't take it personally if it doesn't apply to you, it's only meant to give an example of my writing and get some followers if possible. Other post are available and vary from informative to rants to arguments on facebook with my brother the preacher. So here is one I hope you like:

Religion is the process in which believing in something blindly is expected because someone said you should…

God In Chaos; Chapter Seven; RELIGION SHINES ITS LIGHT part twenty-seven





Religion has truly surpassed the power of every invention that has followed it. As the

Bronze Age, Iron age, middle ages, the age of enlightenment and the

Modern ages have come and gone and gone, religion has been the enemy of

progress every step of the way. To the faithful, things like the Hubble

Space Telescope, nuclear weapons, and climate change are nothing

compared to the power of a faith that believes in a god. If anything man can… Continue

God in Chaos; Chapter Seven; Humans in The Mist part twenty-five.

When paleontologists, archaeologists, anthropologist and other professionals who research the history of Earth through geology, fossils, and ancient

sites of man and animals, a picture begins to develop. Like all

primates, humans are very social and territorial animals. Similar

characteristics are common to the varieties of primate species. But when

the dawn of man came, modern man arrived on the planet pretty…

Passive and Active Atheism

PASSIVE AND ACTIVE ATHEISM



Atheism is often defined as "the absence of god-beliefs". This

definition is useful in debate, because it does not assume any burden of…

Critical analysis of Iona Miller's thesis on "How does the Brain Create God"

A new discipline referred to as 'neurophilosophy' has been promoted by evolutionists like A.C. Grayling - also by geneticists and neuroscientists. Their serious and fully scientifically-oriented discipline attempts to interpret the results of neurology in terms of human experience and ideologies. It is specifically NOT related to the hybrid science-mysticism of 'neurotheology'…

Hellfire and Buggery Part II: Crazy goes to Crazytown!!

Immediately following on from my last blog, about how I'd posted a video on Facebook about Homosexuality and Christianity, received one angry message from a Christian who promptly de-friended me (how shall I ever live with myself ? ? ? ) - someone began commenting on the video.



Turns out - as you'll see - he's something of a spiritual, new age kind with a penchant for CRAZY and lists, LOTS of lists… Continue

Arguing with a Christian



Arguing with a Christian about Science vs. Religion is pointless. It’s pointless because the argument doesn’t end when one side or the other makes a very good point or presents undisputable truth or fact as when an argument should end. No, the argument will only end when the Christian stops being a stubborn moron. Even then only one of two things will happen, one they actually listen and learn something, though not…

Here I go again, stating the obvious.

An epiphany...I have been doing a great deal of reading on atheism. While I am sure that many people have come to this same conclusion before me I am still impressed that I came up with this on my own in my own little mind.

I was reading about the god of the Old Testament and as we all know he was fairly unpleasant. This seemed to be so different from what my parents taught me about god. They did warn me however that god was watching over me and that he was keeping track of my…

What evidence Muslims use to prove that Islam is true



I have mentioned many times here on Atheist Nexus about the social pressures to conform, and the cult-like nature of tradionalist Islam (isolationist, puritanical, exclusivist, controlling etc), and the many mind-control techniques employed by the religious people to ensure they retain power and the religion survives. However, underlying all this is the assumption that Muslims make that Islam is 'the true…

Biblical Claims and Science

There are many claims in the Bible that can't be supported or refuted by direct evidence. For example, in Genesis 5:23 (New International Version) we learn that,

Altogether, Enoch lived 365 years.

The way I interpret this verse is that "altogether" means the real years Enoch lived plus the bullshit years.

I actually prefer the Amplified Bible translation:

So all the days of Enoch were 365…

The Internet: Where religions come to die

I watched an interesting video about how religions/cults survive and how the internet could spell a downward spiral for religion because of the free flow of ideas.








I say good riddance to religion. Science survives in spite of strong scrutiny from all sides who have an incentive to disprove the theory (to gain some intellectual kudos). Science has proven itself to be true. It was science that took man to…

Muslim Scientist: Neil Armstrong Proved Mecca – World Center

I was one of those Christians that actually read my Bible...

...and believed every word of it!

If there were inconsistencies within or without, I credited that to our finite understanding of the infinite. We would understand it "by and by." But where the Bible spoke as literal truth to the very tangible world we can see, hear, touch, taste and smell, where it spoke to our finite understanding in finite terms, I fully expected things to line up...within AND without: The creation, the flood, the geneologies, the history of nations,…

Belief in Science

I wrote a book called "Belief in Science and the Science of Belief." Here's a blurb about it:

"Our selective abandonment of reason to belief compromises our fundamental decision-making capacity, both in small personal matters and in critical public policy. This book will give you the insights and techniques you need to apply scientific rigor to your everyday decision-making. It will help you to understand how to verify facts, avoid logical pitfalls and belief-driven biases,…

FIRST THINGS FIRST

Something I wrote about ten years ago.
-------------------------------
The following is, admittedly, 99% drawn from Ayn Rand. After thirty years of reading, and wandering all over the religious and philosophical MAP, I have decided that, on the ABC fundamentals I cover below, she was right. I have larger disagreements with her on ethics and politics.…

child marriage stopped by rationalists

Right after the Annual Conference held at Kolkata, our Bankura branch has jumped into action. A tribal girl, Putul Tudu aged 12 years was being given in marriage against her will. It is not only illegal in India, but unethical and inhuman. Our secretary Biplab Das from Bankura visited the remote village Housibad amidst the jungles of Taldangra with another member Tarun Rakshit on 9th March and stopped the wedding. He informed the police and got the attention of the administration and saved…
