The Daily Fail

Hello all,

 

This isn't so much a blog as a plug for my new website.  It's nothing special, just something to keep me busy, but it would be nice to get a bit of traffic and a small community of commentors.

 

The site is www.thedailyfail.net

 

It is updated daily (god willing) with news stories relating to religious beliefs.  People basing their idiotic actions on unfounded ideas and superstitions.  If this is…

A little perspective (poem)

Take me up to the vacant moon

To look back down upon mankind

To gaze in awe of all we’ve done

And hold myself smug in those things

 

Take me further to Saturn’s rings…

Dissolve (poem)

Dissolve

Our light it dims under sacred rule

Our faith in Him will see us fall

Bitten lip to heinous deeds

Held too long and now it bleeds

 

Fair refrain has long since past

Suffered pain, it will outlast

Unless outrage is seen as true

And reason is no more subdued

 

Speak in time and while we’re young

Speak in wisdom, not in tongues

Seek with…

My morality

One of the main arguments for religion is morality. Without God to watch over us, we'd all be murdering left right and centre....apparently. As well as being a rather appalling reason to be good, it is also ridiculous. We do not need a list of ten commandments to know how to be good. I have never been religious. Even as a child when I was being fed all the usual shit, I think I always questioned it, at least from an age when I was old enough to question it. Despite being an atheist, I still… Continue

Primitive minds!

 

In the grand scheme of the universe, and the scale of our evolutionary time line, humans are young. Extremely young. Infants, struggling to stand on our own two feet. We know almost nothing of what there is to know. We can comprehend only a smidgen of what there is to comprehend. Our minds still struggle to accept the reality of our existence, our insignificance. We must evoke magical beings to fill our understanding, rather than accept that we simply don't…

Countdown to back peddling!

A friend of mine recently challenged me to find 10 positive things that religion has given the world. I struggled to find one. In fact, the only one I did think of at the time was, a fascinating literary work of fiction. However, I have thought of another; after reading an article about the apparent end of days that is promised to be coming to all us non-believers on the 21 May, (that's tomorrow from the time of me writing this, better start repenting). The…

Religion and "moderates"

I want to tell you all a little story. It involves my nephew, who was around 22 and living in Scotland at the time, where he played in a cricket team. The team was made up of various ethnicities and religions. During an after season party, my nephew happened to mention to one particular young man that he was an atheist. The man he told was a Muslim, around the same age as him, maybe a little younger. He was also supposedly a friend and team mate. So what did my nephew get as a response to this… Continue

Tolerance

Islam, as I stated in my last post, is an evil religion, however, I would like to say that fundamentalist Christians are not much better. Their attitude towards homosexuality is appalling, (as is Islam's by the way), and their conviction in their beliefs are no less baffling. The difference is the actions that are taken based on these beliefs. While fundamentalist Christians might picket a soldier's funeral, waving banners with vile claims of their god's hatred of “fags”, they still do not go… Continue

Beware of Islam

 

The recent "victory" claimed by the United States government, the killing of Osama Bin Laden, seems a good thing at first. However, it's really just another poke in the eye of this back and forth between the western world and Islam, (or maybe between Christianity and Islam?) A retaliation is sure to follow, that's just the way it works. So while the American people are celebrating in the street, I'd be running for cover.…
