Priest wants you to repent for voting Obama

This isn't the first time we've heard of religious figures using their influence to promote their political agenda, but it certainly is unique that Father Newman asked his parishioners to repent if they voted for Obama. He's been able to get away with this by citing Obama's pro-choice policy as the reason for his discontent. It's a divisive thing to do, and I hope the people of Greenville, South Carolina ki ...

The religious corporation: Part 1

When trying to explain the origin of religion, we must answer the question of how it came together, since although human beings are social animals, the act of creating a stable institution is an extreme rarity. Consider how many cults come and go; obviously, even if there is a fundamental need to be religious, there must be some explanation as to why humans would continue to participate and develop their re ...

Some atheists are taking themselves a bit too seriously..

Ggnothi seauton (Greek): It means know thyself, and it's something I've always taken to heart. I'm not always the most positive and easy going guy around. I've been known to kick some dust in the faces of my opposition. When you're in a fight, particularly one for the hearts and minds of your fellow human beings, you can sometimes lose sight of how the conflict changes you. When you have a website devoted t ...

The ‘Charter for Compassion’ is a waste of time

I came across this website, Charter for Compassion, which is the latest attempt by religious moderates to extend an olive branch to other religions in the hope of curbing fundamentalism. The site asks people to discuss stories of compassion that they have experienced in their lives. I believe it is their hope to communicate through these stories the idea all people share the need for acts of kindness regard ...

Book Review: The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality

A few weeks ago, Penguin Publishing sent me an email offering a free copy of Andre Comte-Sponville's The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality. Not being one to turn down anything free (I'm poor, what can I say?), I gladly accepted. When it was finally delivered, I was anxious to see if this book would provide new insights on the subject of atheism. I've read all the works of the four horsemen of the atheist ...

Children in Nigeria victims of superstition

In a small village in Nigeria, a little boy of 5 years of age is frightened and confused. His mother and father have abandoned him; their normally loving embrace will never be felt again. The other villagers are angry, and some of them throw stones at him. He does not cry. Part of him has accepted his fate, and the rejection of his loved ones is enough to make the boy numb. The only question in his mind is ...

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 ...
