Remember the Sabbath, or God will be angry!

Another great video by the Thinking Atheist. It reminds me of the scene in Religulous when Bill Maher talks to a Jewish entrepreneur who develops all kinds of ludicrous technology intended to trick God into thinking his "people" are observing the Sabbath. Hey morons, if your petty deity really wants you to avoid even striking a match on this day of rest, do you really think a digital timer turned on the day ...

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 ...

Say hello to Mr. God

Ever wonder who God is? Well, apparently, he's an Edmonton man with a criminal past! Yes, God was arrested and spent 5 years in Japanese prison after trying to smuggle a whole suitcase of weed into the country. Now back in Canada, God (formerly John Paul LaPointe), was coached into changing his name by a Russian mystic he met in India, leading me to believe God hasn't exactly stopped smoking the good shit. ...

Billionaire to give money to Catholic church to fulfill “pact with God”

Albert Gubay, founder of Kwik Save (a grocery chain in the UK) has put his business into a trust in order to keep a promise he made to an invisible sky deity after he asked his help to become a millionaire. Now, at 82, this Catholic is now donating almost a billion dollars to various Roman Catholic charities (you may recall these are the same institutions that use homeless people and orphans as pawns in the ...

God, take over the media!

Take from the unrighteous, and give the media over to the crazy Christian fundies. Oh Lord! don't you know with your super magic you can simply change things and make it easier for the blatantly ignorant to spread the message we all better love you before you throw us into hellfire. Three cheers for the prince of peace! ...

Morality without God

Man, I hate the accusation that just because I don't believe in a sky-deity I suddenly don't possess any morals whatsoever. Who decided the only way to "be good" was by blindly accepting the moral edicts of a 6000 year old manuscript? Did everyone suddenly forget the fact things were pretty fucked up back then? What parts of the Bible are still moral by today's standards? How about selling your daughter int ...

Belief in God makes you more racist

Perhaps it can be said at one particular time (although I'm unaware of exactly when), religion offered a way for individuals to feel some degree of community with others who did not share any direct family lineage. Whatever advantage religion conferred to our ancient ancestors, the inevitable tendency for religionists to favor only those with precisely the same belief as them has fostered some of the most g ...

Iran executes enemies of God

Iran is still a mess politically, and even after jailing, torturing and intimidating protesters, it hasn't stopped young people from wanting a radical change in their government. Now, out of desperation, the government has turned to calling political dissenters "mohareb", or enemies of God. Because the country is under Sharia law, the greatest crime is apostasy, and since the penalty for this "crime" is dea ...

Mother starves kids waiting for God to provide for her

Man, am I glad neither of my parents were religious. We were quite poor when I was young, and it wasn't always easy to make ends meet; luckily, unlike this woman, my parents worked hard to provide for me rather than wait around for some invisible friend in the sky to fix their problems. Estelle Walker is facing a total of 40 years in prison for child endangerment. It seems Walker had been staying at a cabin ...

God wants you to be rich, people!

I think I may have found the most obnoxious book in the whole world: Paul Zane Pilzer's God Wants You to be Rich. Pilzer is convinced there is no such thing as scarcity, and everyone, given enough gumption and hard work, can achieve great financial success. Pilzer exposes the key error--the belief in scarcity--that leads to a misunderstanding of the process of creating wealth.  Countering this zero-sum view ...
