This man is a genius!

I see more and more of these sorts of videos on YouTube, mostly because many  very stupid people are upset that atheists are winning the God debate. So long as I can keep laughing at them, I'll continue to post them up. Best moment in this video is when he argues God is merely invisible, like air. Move over Thomas Aquinas; the world's greatest theologian is on the loose! ...

Exchange student nightmare

Think about how paralyzing it must be to go to another country as an exchange student only to learn your host's parents are crazy fundamentalists trying to convert you. That's what this kid had to live through, and despite the annoyance, he seemed more upset at the fact he had to escape their clutches and leave them feeling hurt. One part in particular was telling about the true motivations of some people: ...

Stop being evil, atheists!

Wow, I don't even know where to start with this guy...Did you know I was 100,000% wrong according to this guy? Oh, and he says if you hate God, he'll hate you right back. That sounds more like the guy I've read in the Old Testament than this Jesus fellow. Finally someone who gets it! ...

Prayer not part of emergency procedure.

The last thing you want to hear on a plane that has a fuel gauge malfunction is the pilot praying out loud. It's a clear sign the guy has lost his marbles. Turns out the pilot and copilot of a ATR turbo-prob aircraft which crashed at sea just off Sicily will have plenty of time to pray in jail, as both have been sentenced to 10 years for failing to follow emergency procedures. Let this be a lesson to all yo ...

Atheist Pride Day

I received an invite on Facebook to join Atheist Pride Day, which is just another version of the 'Out Campaign' for atheism, and it includes the big scarlet 'A' that Richard Dawkins has popularized. I'm fine with the idea of showing pride in atheism, but I'm not really down with how this particular campaign is being handled. I guess I hate the idea of an image or symbol. From a design point of view, I find ...

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 ...

Pope thinks condoms will make AIDS epidemic worse

In the Western world, we are mostly isolated from the deadly effect of the AIDS virus. Those who have it usually don't make much publicity for themselves, and some hide it completely. In Africa, however, the disease is a plague that is slowly killing off their population. It makes orphans of children who then starve to death; it cripples food production as farmers are too sick to properly harvest the land. ...

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, ...
