Derren Brown converts atheists

I said the other day that Derren Brown had found new fans. Well, now I have a new HERO, after watching his special about how easy it is to convert people. Derren isn't afraid of a challenge, so he goes about trying to convert people who doesn't believe in God, and you'd be surprised at just how easy that is. Consider this a little bit of education for all you unbelievers out there, on just how easy you ca ...

Why psychics hate Derren Brown

There's a long stranding belief that astrologers, psychics, and Tarot readers generally do no harm. Most people who read their horoscope do so out of sheer curiosity, and because they enjoy being surprised by the occasional reading that seems genuine. Of course, this belief often disregards the giant disfavor done to individuals who often rely on such quacks to tell them what do with their lives. The techni ...

Mother Teresa: closet atheist

Remember Mother Teresa? You may recall often today, every time someone fails to commit an act of selfishness, they are automatically criticized for not being like her. This woman is still revered by many as a symbol of goodness and generosity. Unfortunately, it would seem her saintliness was not a result of her religious conviction. It seems to have been only a facade, as recently published letters indicate ...

Atlantis contest

I'll be recording the podcast a little later in the week, but I thought I might ask my readers to participate in a little contest. It's very simple: in the upcoming show, I'll be talking a little bit about the legend of Atlantis. I recently watched this video, and was completely awestruck by just how ludicrous and ridiculous the claims are. In fact, they are so out there, my contest is to dare anyone to mak ...

The lethargy of the reading public

CNN wrote an interesting article concerning the fact that over a quarter of Americans adults had read no books this year. It of course seems ironic that such a report is likely to go unnoticed, but I thought I might make a little comment regarding this sad state of affairs, and also of the underlying religious corollary behind it. It seems a little bit funny that one of the people they interviewed, a man fr ...

Women’s right to choose still hot debate topic

What you believe about the supernatural has a powerful influence over how you treat the natural, physical world. For instance, if you think life begins right at the moment of conception, you may feel the need to deny the right of others to terminate unwanted pregnancies. It wouldn't matter if you lacked any real evidence of this; it's inconsequential. Some can be so convinced of this fact they would be will ...

More delicious religious icons

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about a woman who cut down a tree and discovered the supposed face of the Virgin Mary. Having just destroyed what was obviously a water damaged overgrowth (which explained the dark stains in the wood), I commented it looked rather like one of the helmets for the Lord of the Rings franchise. If I chased every religious icon story, this site would be overrun by one ridiculo ...

Quebec Mennonite school shutting down

The Quebec government has threatened legal action against a group of Mennonites who operate a small school in the little town of Roxton Falls. The school, which does not teach the theory of evolution, and which relies heavily on the Bible for all of its classes, has no accredited teachers, and their programs have not been provincially approved. The religious group has therefore decided to uproot themselves, ...

A continued correspondence

A few days ago, I posted a letter I sent to my Christian counterpart. Here is his reply, and my answer to him: Dear goodatheist, Thanks for replying. I just read everything you said and I agree on some issues with you. I also can understand why you became an atheist. If I was probably in your position I would become one too because of the bad experience and of the education the Greek Mythology class. I also ...
