Karen Armstrong at TED

Karen Armstrong is a brilliant woman, and her books on God are both highly interesting and profoundly insightful. I must admit, however, that as studies of religion have progressed, her focus has centered on compassion. She views this notion as universal, and believes the best elements of religion can be enhanced when the focus is placed on compassion rather than dogma. It's a nice notion, but it ignores th ...

Get a Life!

I don't pay attention to World Net Daily, mostly because the people who write for it are religious scumbags who wouldn't hesitate to transform the world into a Christian Theocracy. Now they are outraged at Hasbro's online version of 'The Game of Life' which allows same sex marriages. It was too much for one woman to bear, apparently: "You know how kids are," the mother told WND. "My daughter noticed right a ...

On the controversy of atheism

In my own life, I have always sought out issues that are controversial. It's no secret I'm a highly opinionated individual; I've chosen to take a stand on issues I consider to be of fundamental importance. I know there are many out there, even some of my fans, who consider the issue of a person's religion to be a private affair. One fan accused me of being insensitive by 'outing' my sister on my radio show, ...

Do you question everything?

Unreasonable Faith asks an interesting question to the faithful: What if God was Disproved? I think, however, the answer to this question is fairly obvious: they would ignore it. Think about all the things religious people already ignore: evolution, the Constitution, sexual preferences (that one literally scares them to death); they even ignore parts of their own religious text they find inconvenient. I thi ...

Nice ad…

Wow, and here I was complaining about how tame the atheist bus campaign message was. Islam: Submission to God reminds me why I revile this religion. Since God isn't actually around, the only thing you're submissive to is a dusty, poorly written tome that is completely incompatible with modern values. Oh, and graphic design FAIL!

Who would Jesus shoot?

Imagine a crazed gunman with a semi automatic walks in to your workplace and declares anyone who isn't a Christian is going to die. He turns around to you and asks your religion. What would you say? Most of us wouldn't hesitate to lie, but for some folks, that's the worst thing you could do. Derik Bonestroo decided on Thursday that he was going to purge the Eldora ski resort of non Christians, and when he w ...

Religious people are less stressed

There's a new study that seems to indicate religious people have less stress, and appear less worried about making mistakes than their secular counterparts. The study indicates something I've always known about religious people: they generally take a hands off attitude towards life. Think about this: when you are certain this life is only one form of existence, the only thing you have to worry about is plea ...

Atheist superheroes

Here's an interesting site I came across today, which describes in detail the religious affiliation of different superheroes. Most interesting to me is how light the atheist section is. I am glad, however, that Savage Dragon is in there. He's an atheist DESPITE the fact he's actually met God, which is the ballsiest position I've ever seen on the issue of belief. The list is quite impressive, including even ...

Florida Baptists get involved

Florida is facing a budget deficit, and the primary concern of their government should be to ensure this economic crisis doesn't bankrupt their state. Of course, not everyone sees the economy as the most important issue of the day: Florida Baptist Convention legislative consultant Bill Bunkley is urging Florida Baptists to evaluate budget priorities "through the lens of God's principles and His priorities”a ...

Does this sound like an ‘ex-Atheist’ to you?

Here's Kirk Cameron trying his best to convince us that before he read the Bible, he didn't know anything real. Even if he didn't believe in God before then, he himself admits he never really though about God, so he's less of an atheist and just more of an ex-non theist. (props to proudatheist for the find) ...
