Man beats two “cross dressers” on Halloween, claims God made him do it

Can you think of any reason why one human being should attack another? Perhaps if your own safety is threatened, or if you need to protect your loved ones. I find there are very few valid reasons for one person to hurt another, but I must be in the minority. Take this douche, Robert Bellamy Jr, who along with accomplices assaulted and robbed  two men dressed in woman's clothing, telling police that "God mad ...

God might be all powerful, but his wallet isn’t

I've always been both repulsed and annoyed at the way religious organizations exploit the poor. How many times have I seen or read of preachers pressuring their flock to give when their own cupboards are empty? Too many to count I imagine.  Elder Lynn G. Robbins is a businessman and high ranking member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints. He wrote an article a while back calling on the destitute to obey the ...

How do I know God exists? He made me cry!

This is some Glenn Beck level of emo right there. Just because you cry like a bitch every time you think about God certainly doesn't mean he exists (it probably just means you need a hug from a real person or something). Dude, have you considered the possibility all of this is shit is just a bunch of make-believe? I used to cry when Santa didn't bring me that present I asked for; does the fact I shed so man ...

Suck it, God!

Genesis Chapter 3, verse 14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this [tricked Eve into eating the apple] thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field;upon thy belly shalt thoug go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life. Crawl on their bellies forever, huh? Evolution might have something to say about that. Doesn't it kind of look like this snake i ...

Harlan Ellison on God

A fan of the site sent me this video, and I had to educate myself a little bit to find out exactly who Harlan Ellision is. Because he hates the Internet and still does all his writing on an old Olympia typewriter (the supposed Mercedes Benz of typewriters!), most of you are probably like me and have to admit almost complete ignorance about his life and works. Of course, after listening to his speech, I will ...

Why we believe in Gods

If you've got a good hour, I recommend listening to this presentation. You can play it in the background without really needing to watch it, so don't feel like you need to burn your eyes out staring at his blue screen (why do people still use that color in their presentations anyways?). Make sure this is part of your "must watch" list. ...

Mark Sanford thinks God is on his side

Remember this guy? He was caught red handed having an affair with a hot Argentine woman he called his "soul mate", but the weight of the scandal hasn't deterred him from leaving his post. Presumably, the man doesn't know how to do anything other than misuse public funds and break his vows of matrimony. It does sound like he's tailor made for politics, doesn't it? Since no one wants to back him up, he's deci ...

God hates your baby

I'm not quite sure what the hell is going on in this preview, but from what I can gather, cheesy special effects and a very unusual Apocalyptic setting means humans are shooting angels with guns, and demons have super long limbs for some creepy reason. Also, there seems to be some kind of subplot where God is a gigantic asshole. There's no way to tell if this will be awesome or just a gigantic piece of stea ...

The “Noughties” and God

I had never heard of the "noughties" until today. It's the slang used to describe the decade of 2000-2009. Maybe in ten years, people will be talking about the "naughty noughties" or something equally catchy (that's really the best I could do). Here's a video from the BBC talking about this decade's growing secularism, and how religion is losing major ground in the UK. My favorite moment in the video was wa ...

Can belief in God be a good thing?

I received this email from long time fan of the site James, who recently had an experience with his mother he thought was worth sharing. I've received this kind of question pretty often, and I thought it might be good bring it up again to clarify my position. Here is James' letter: I really liked yesterday’s TGA bonus episode. Couldn’t agree more that End of Faith is my favourite of the books you mentioned. ...
