Christian apologists make me sick

Question: The Old Testament quite clearly states the Israelites were ordered by God to kill the Canaanites. Every man, woman, and child was to be slaughtered. If this story is historical truth, and God really did issue this command, is he not then admonishing genocide? This is the very same question asked of Dr. Willian Craig, a research professor of Philosophy and the proud owner of ReasonableFaith.org. If ...

Environmentalism is not a religion

(This is a response to this video) Imagine every Nobel winning scientist went on record to say a giant asteroid was headed for planet Earth, and in 30 years, it would impact, killing all life on the planet. How many people would go on television and say more data needed to be collected before we took action? How many would claim asteroid impacts are a natural part of the Earth's history and not an issue for ...

On the need for a strong atheist community

I've written on the subject of an organized atheist movement for years now. The response so far, overwhelmingly from many atheists, is such a movement would violate the notion atheism is not a religion, but rather a particular viewpoint about the non existence of God. Over this same period of time, however, a number of individuals have emailed me expressing their feelings of isolation and loneliness at not ...

Arkansas gays lose battle to keep adopted children

Many of you might be wondering why, in the past few days,. I've been writing as much as I have on gay rights. Although it's true the site is primarily about atheism, my reaction to the blatant and shocking disregard for this minority obliges me to write on their behalf. Unbeknownst to most of us, the election was not only about voting in a new president. It was also an opportunity for conservative groups in ...

The LA Times believes Digg has an atheist agenda

I frequently use Digg.com. I'll admit I am partial to the left wing slant most of the articles seem to have, but if I am to believe the LA Times, the site has some kind of atheist agenda. Call me crazy, but since when has expressing your opinions become equivalent to trying to spark a revolution? Yes, it's true a large proportion of Digg users appear to be atheists, but so what? Is it some dark agenda, or m ...

When democracy isn’t democratic

Imagine you have an apple pie and there are six people who want a piece. It seems obvious that if you're a fair person, you would go ahead and divide the pie in six equal pieces. This is how small groups of individuals make compromises which allow each person to have an equal opportunity, in this case, to have pie. Now, imagine the pie was much bigger, and there were millions of people who wanted a piece of ...

Big changes on the horizon

Yesterday, I wrote a post about my need to continue the book project I started about a year ago. I've come to the conclusion that the site is one of the best places for me to experiment with my ideas and theories, and there is no earthly reason why it can't become a premier blog on the subject of atheism. The radio show is doing tremendously well, despite no real effort on my part to promote it. It seems lo ...

One step forward, two steps back

A few weeks ago, I was contemplating whether or not I should continue trying to write my book on atheism. Part of my hesitation came from the fact there are already so many books on the subject, and everyone with a soapbox believes they have something to say on the issue. It can make a person's own opinion on the subject feel small and relatively unimportant. Still, events seem to conspire to force me into ...

You gotta see this…

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how bigotry, homophobia, and racism are often hidden in plain sight, often under the guise of religious faith. This video should galvanize any American to take the issue of Prop.8 very seriously, and how religion is attempting to usurp the rights of others in order to fulfill their dogmatic convictions. ...

Holy shit…

Words alone cannot describe how fucking stupid this woman is. I'm angry enough that she would so poorly mask her racism in supposed concern over Obama's religious beliefs, without compounding how little she understands her own ignorance. ...
