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…
It's a pipe dream. Still, there's no harm in spreading it around. The more people that see it, the better the chances that some of them will say something…Continue

Penn Jillette’s Private Rock & Roll, Doughnut and Bacon Party
Be forewarned —
This really is Penn’s private party. He’s paying for everything and JREF has nothing to do with it. This party will be whatever Penn wants; it’s not a JREF…
What if you took the Bible and edited out all the supernatural references and got to the core of its ethical teachings? That’s not quite what the new release by…

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

I bent the binding of The Good Atheist, Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God, by Dan Barker, in hopes that I would either come out of it in some way affirmed or finally have a resource for a person struggling with the decision to let go of their faith. When I closed the book, I felt like a sore eared member of the choir. The majority of Barker’s book is an appeal to authority and celebrity, a mishap of astonishing proportion when speaking about, to, or for, a community that…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…
Mark your calendar because May 21 is Judgement Day!

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