Kenyan man sacrifices own son for God

Probably one of the scariest and most disturbing stories in the Bible (yeah, I know it's hard to find one which isn't fucked up) is of Abraham and Isaac. Commanded by God to kill his son, Abraham ties up the boy and is about to plunge his dagger in his chest when he is stopped at the last minute by Metatron (that's a real angel name) and instead sacrifices an innocent animal in his stead. It's some dark shi ...

Smut for Smut campaign shocks Fox News

Here's further proof no one at Fox News has actually ever bothered to read the damn Bible. If they did, they might have noticed much of it is pure insanity, coupled with stories of genocide, infanticide, incest, rape, and everyone's favorite, the threat of eternal damnation. A little bit of porn never hurt anyone; hell, one of the hosts seems to be all too familiar with the very "smut" they seem so outraged ...

Who wants a good laugh?

Is it so wrong of me to delight in the pleasure of reading truly terrible and infantile articles trying to "prove" the existence of God? Even though the arguments never change, I still delight in reading the faithful drone on and on about just how real God is, despite the fact they themselves readily admit to his imperviousness to falsifiability. What I find fascinating is just how adamant religionists are ...

Italian atheist suing over Jesus’ existence

Here's a bit of weird news: an Italian atheist is suing a parish priest for repeatedly claiming Jesus Christ was a historical figure. Luigi Cascioli is a 72 year old lifelong non-believer who has grown tired of Italians blindly accepting the notion of the literal existence of God, and has decided to involve the courts. It's a fairly amusing tactic, but since the burden of proof is on Cascioli to disprove th ...

Tired Christian claim #3: The evidence for the existence of Jesus is overwhelming

I've been seeing this argument popping up more and more often these days. It's a relative newcomer in terms of claim, but it certainly is one that's worth discussing. Last article I mentioned how the word 'faith' is a misnomer; I've never actually met a Christian who did not think there was a mountain of evidence supporting their claim that Jesus of Nazareth was a God. Really the only time you'll actually h ...

Religious wacko facing dismisal sues school district

You can't keep a good psycho down, apparently. John Freshwater is an eighth grade science teacher who denies evolution, used a high voltage lab tool in class to burn crosses on the arms of students, and told them homosexuals are evil sinners. The district first suspended him after hearing the allegations, and announced last June (yeah, the story isn't exactly "fresh" here) they were canning him. Now Freshwa ...

This guy thinks atheists are “childish”

Here's a new argument: we are apparently too silly, and don't take atheism seriously enough. So, in a nutshell, atheists are both way too uptight according to some, and too frivolous according to others. Have any of these clergymen speaking on atheism spent more than 15 seconds talking to one? Barron is calling us childish and 'frivolous' for the ad campaign started by a few organizations in the US, Canada, ...

America is not a Christian nation

An article here tries to make the case that both the Left and the Right are wrong about the Founding Fathers establishing (or not) a Christian nation. The author makes a good case for why religious conservatives are wrong, but he doesn't seem to say anything constructive about why the Left is mistaken. I must assume he feels perhaps secularists like myself may not fully appreciate the contribution Christian ...

Does it take faith to be an atheist?

I can't tell you how many times I'm 'accused' by a person of faith that my label of atheism somehow implies I must have faith in the idea to the same degree they do. I want to try and clear the air here, and explain why my belief in the non-existence of God is not a position of faith, but is simply the most rational interpretation of the available evidence. Historically, I can admit atheism is fairly new to ...

An atheist life: Jack’s story

As some of you may know, I decided to invite all of you to share your stories about being an atheist. I hate to admit it, but my own story is just not that interesting. Atheist parents and their wisdom to let me chose for myself what I would believe made me the man I am today. But not every atheist life is as plain. I think there are compelling stories that have yet to be told, and this new section is inten ...
