The Atheist 10 commandments

I know they exist somewhere, but if you were able to write the 10 commandments (or 15 for you Mel Brooks fans...) What would they be?



I jokingly wrote a few extra ones at the end. Feel free to write your own 10 or just throw one or two at me.



I'm just interested to see what everyone has to say.



1. Thou shalt not molest children

2. Thou shalt not rape

3. Thou shalt THINK about consequences before acting

4. Thou shalt not murder, unless it's to help… Continue

My response

I'm still having an ongoing discussion with a friend who is a Bible/Christianity apologist, here's my latest response...



I'm so sorry it took so long to respond. I wasn't ignoring your last response, but dealing with my maid of honor duties in Arkansas. And yeah, I had to break down your message before I replied. :-)



Regarding Lee Strobel, one book written is not going to

prove that another book is correct. If the author truly

uncovered evidence that… Continue

A conversation between a Chrisitan and an Atheist

Just a warning, this is kind of a long one... I copied a facebook conversation I've been having because it's been pretty interesting. This all started when an old friend of mine started posting updates on my news feed about how people are so ignorant to think that Plato is a better source for morality than the "ancient wisdom" of the Bible. I replied and asked her to fill me in and we moved our conversation to a more private form of communication because others started to jump in and we… Continue

Regarding the Fox News Clip

First let me just say I'm playing Devil's Advocate for the sake of inspiring thought:



But I don't understand why striking out the moment of silence in schools is so offensive to some atheists. I actually appreciate taking a moment of silence to reflect the passing of a co-worker/friend/family member without prayer.



And although the idea of prayer is ridiculous to me, I can't see how the mention of the word would hurt.



I understand that some families have gotten… Continue

Is Hell exothermic or endothermic?

I apologize if you'd read this e-mail forward already, but I was laughing so hard I had to post it here.





HELL EXPLAINED BY CHEMISTRY STUDENT

The following is an actual question given on a

University ofWashington chemistry mid-term.



The answer by one student was so 'profound' that

the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of

course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :



Bonus Question: Is Hell… Continue

Homeland Security. Thanks God!

State Rep. Wants Providence Acknowledged "by law"



LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A lawmaker says the state's Homeland Security office should be crediting God with keeping the state safe.



State Rep. Tom Riner, a Southern Baptist minister who was instrumental in establishing that requirement in 2006, disapproves of the fact that Homeland Security doesn't currently mention God in its mission statement or on its Web site.



The law passed under former Gov. Ernie Fletcher,…

"oh my god" [explicit lyrics]

I don't have the literary skills that most others on this site have, nor the time to do research.



But I only wanted to write a blurb tonight on the small bits of text we/I speak on occasion without really thinking about them. Even in my Godlessness, I find myself still saying "Oh my god" and "bless you" (when people sneeze) at times.



"How on God's green earth" do I stop myself from doing this?



Should I?



"God damn't!" There I go again, references to… Continue

When God became my invisible friend.

I've been wondering for some time now, when did I start believing in God? I know exactly when I stopped, like most people on this site. It's a lot harder to break the spell of culture and what I learned from my family after some 30 years of being immersed in the idea of Jesus.



As a Hispanic girl in Southern California, I was naturally raised as a Catholic. I remember Sunday churches and early morning breakfasts with the family. I remember going to Catechism school on Wednesday… Continue

Finally a place to be me.

Thanks to The Good Atheists for having a link to this website. I've blogged my random musings on religion and politics on my MySpace, but I always have the feeling I'm alienating myself from my friends who seem content with just cruising through life. And especially my friends who are Christians, but not the bible-thumping, proselytizing types.



I can't wait to find time to actually write out some of my thoughts here. Especially the question that's been plaguing me for the last week,… Continue
