For the last time, Atheism is not a religion

Religious people just don't get it, do they? They think when we talk about the belief in God we are in fact acknowledging 'his' existence, and that our own struggle against the brutalizing influence of religion is itself a kind of faith. It's enough to make your head want to burst. Especially frustrating are these kind of lazy atheist hit pieces; brave articles that refuse to allow a comment section out of ...

String of atheism signs vandalized, no real action taken by officials

I know many of you out there think making holiday displays and fighting to have them displayed is a waste of time, but with the recent strings of vandalism against our property, not to mention the ridiculous reasons given by city officials for rejecting these banners helps highlight the fact that atheists are still a vilified and abused minority. This echos a report by the International Humanist and Ethical ...

Religious People keep getting atheism wrong

Every day, another religious mouthbreather with a keyboard attempts to find a way to argue the atheistic worldview is antithetical to the welfare of society. It's so painful to read these articles specifically because at no time do any of these morons ever come close to making a valid point. The latest frustration to hit my peepers is an article entitled "Atheists Get Religion All Wrong". This unidentified ...

Another shitty article about how atheism is a religion (or just as bad as one)

Articles that are critical of religion are divided into two main categories: those that claim atheism is a religion, or those that claim we're just as bad as one. This article differs only slightly from this pathetic formula, accusing us of only focusing on the three big Abrahamic religions and somehow forgetting all of the other peddlers of nonsense. So it rightly criticises creationism and ‘intelligent de ...

Shitty journalist thinks ‘militant atheism’ must be fought

How to spot a poorly written article about atheism. (1) The words 'fundamentalist' or 'militant' are used in the article without any real justification (i.e., do these words have the same meaning for our religious counter-parts, I wonder) (2) 'Atheistic' regimes are blamed for the worst human rights offenses (3) We're told that secularism is an imposition rather than redressing a clear inequity. It's clear ...

Rebecca Watson thinks r/atheism reddit full of misogynists

Here's something I've learned in all my years of blogging: if you look for something hard enough, you'll find it. In my case, it's examples of religious stupidity that I zero in on. I realize that cheap laughs and easy jokes may not give the complete picture of a particular religion (usually Christianity or Islam), but if I was trying to be fair I wouldn't be having any fun. I want you to keep this in mind, ...

Apologist thinks atheism leads to sexual immorality

I'm feeling good this morning. According to Christian apologist Josh McDowell, the web is infested with atheists like me trying to spread their vile message of godlessness and pornography. While I certainly agree with the first part of the accusation, I wish to clarify that while TGA endorses pornography, I still think that there's way too much of it that's anal. What happened to the vagina, guys? And pleas ...

Piers Morgan is ignorant about atheism

Skip to minute 5 where Piers displays his complete lack of understanding when it comes to atheism (if you want to avoid hearing any more about the Casey Anthony case). "Hey Bill, do you still pray?". Who the fuck writes the questions for this idiot? Piers, do you seriously not get what non-belief is all about, dude? ...

Not a great weekend for atheism

There are times when I ask myself if I really want to be a part of this "scene". It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, it's usually caused by people acting like a bunch of children. Case in point: the entire atheist blogosphere has been abuzz dominated by Rebecca Watson's "I was hit on in an elevator" story. This non-news got even more attention when she chose a keynote address to call out a fello ...

Labeling atheism as a thought crime

I found this hilariously offensive letter to the editor from an Irish newspaper, and I just had to include it. It's a complaint regarding a show called "Liveline" that happened to have featured an atheist upset at a law that was passed in 2009 that would fine blasphemers thousands of dollars for "offending" religious rubes (I admit it's a bit old, but it's totally hilarious): Why in the name of God (oops so ...
