I don’t have enough brains to be an atheist

Where do I start with this ass clown? I feel like he's trying to sell me a used car or something. Let's quickly examine his claims, shall we? 1. Does Truth Exist? I think you'll find this is a loaded question when it comes to religion. For them, truth means only their specific beliefs are true, rather than admit an objective truth outside their schema is possible. This would involve the possibility of belie ...

Peter Popoff is at it again

There are few men with the batting record of Peter Popoff. The man seems to have an innate ability to scam people out of their hard-earned money, and does so without breaking a sweat. He's been largely free to bamboozle people out of their hard earned money using the best shield against rationality, responsibility and accountability: religion. He began in the 70's as a faith healer, racking up millions of d ...

40% of Americans are creationist idiots

Hey America, how do you know whether or not your public education system is failing? How about the fact almost half of your adult population is convinced the Earth is about as old as the Agrarian Revolution (when we went from hunters to farmers). Nice, huh? If you're wondering what other Western country has such abysmally ignorant people, the answer is Turkey, a similarly religious country that also has a s ...

Religious hospitals scare me

I can't imagine the kind of terror I would experience if I was a woman and suddenly was faced with a complication in my pregnancy at a Catholic Hospital. The Church's dogma concerning abortion is one that causes the misery and death of countless women, all because they're convinced babies are all miracles of a male God, and conclude abortionists are worse than child molesters (you can't rape what doesn't ex ...

Vatican Cardinal thinks atheism is “irrational”

A man who dresses in red robes and calls himself by a special name believes individuals who reject the notion of unsupported supernatural claims are irrational. Walter Brandmuller may never have played Dungeons & Dragons, but if he did, he might realize there is nothing particularly special about his title; definitely not enough to pretend to know anything about objective reality. When, however, has tha ...

Are Skeptics feeling left out in the cold?

The relationship between skepticism and atheism is complicated. For starters, skepticism is a process with which you evaluate information and claims, while atheism is merely the absence of belief in the supernatural claims of various religions in regard to a "higher power". Despite the fact we all agree that skepticism is more of a "toolkit" to evaluate claims rather than an actual belief, invariably there ...

The Bible is fireproof!

I love how religious rubes cling to anything that has the hint of a miracle as proof of the solvency of their belief. So much for blind faith! A family living in a mobile home had an electric fire that destroyed everything inside about out, but while sifting through the ashes, they found this burnt out Bible, and immediately thought something miraculous had happened. The family didn't want to go on camera S ...

Shocker: New study finds American adults are dumb

What's got me riled up today? It could be this recent survey by the Pew forum on Religion and Public life found over two thirds of the adult population of the US believes in angels. And when I say angels, I don't mean dudes like Metatron who only show up when a deranged father is about to kill his youngest son. No, I'm talking about the kinds that are all over the place, supposedly protecting people. I gues ...

Australia gets their first Demi-God

If you aren't from down under, odds are you've never heard of Mary MacKillop, also known as Saint Mary of the Cross. A few days ago the Vatican canonized her, making Mary the first Australian to get this "demi-god" status. In order to receive that canonization, Mary had to have two miracles attributed to her, and as you've probably guessed by now, the supposed miracles were people being "cured" of cancer. I ...

Well Said!

You want to know why some people still believe in God? Well, it certainly doesn't help when people give "Him" all the fucking credit when it's the work of real human beings who got shit done. An invisible sky daddy didn't save all those Chilean miners; real people with science and technology got it done! ...
