Big changes on the horizon

Yesterday, I wrote a post about my need to continue the book project I started about a year ago. I've come to the conclusion that the site is one of the best places for me to experiment with my ideas and theories, and there is no earthly reason why it can't become a premier blog on the subject of atheism. The radio show is doing tremendously well, despite no real effort on my part to promote it. It seems lo ...

One step forward, two steps back

A few weeks ago, I was contemplating whether or not I should continue trying to write my book on atheism. Part of my hesitation came from the fact there are already so many books on the subject, and everyone with a soapbox believes they have something to say on the issue. It can make a person's own opinion on the subject feel small and relatively unimportant. Still, events seem to conspire to force me into ...

An atheist church

Jake caused quite a stir with the concept of atheism as an organized religion (a much better article than my random link posts). Now an artist in San Francisco is converting a building into something of an atheist church as part of an exhibition for the Judah L Magnes Museum. From Boing Boing: Instead of telling the story of baby Jesus, the Atheon's stained glass windows will show cosmic microwave backgroun ...

Atheist Republicans

All this talk of the Democrats making us atheists feel unloved has made me wonder about the other side of the equation. What's the deal with atheist Republicans? Here's an article that talks about the reasons atheists probably aren't attracted to the Republican party: Should atheists vote for Republican candidates? There's nothing inherently incompatible with being an atheist who is Republican or who votes ...

Dawkins’ new documentary

This month saw the release of a new Dawkins related documentary called The Genius of Charles Darwin - you can read more about it here or just download the torrents here. My criticism of Dawkins has always been that he's so hardcore about his disdain for religion it turns off many religious fence sitters who might be more receptive to a moderate atheist message. Yeah, I know the whole 'moderate atheism will ...

Open letter to my Head of State

Well, just like I promised on my website, I have sent out a letter to every member of Parliament asking for the right to be an Ordained Secular Minister. If you'd like to contact your member of Parliament and encourage them to look into this issue, please go here. This is my letter: I must confess that I am in dismay .Canada considers itself free and progressive, but in many instances, we are not. Although ...

Do we need an organized movement against religion?

If you're already an atheist, you might feel as though the world around you is awash in delusion. You might also have noticed although a large number of people find comfort in the fanciful notions of religion, there are others who are entangled in guilt, pain, or violence because of it. The thought may have crossed your mind that a powerful and organized movement is required against religion to free mankind ...

A continued correspondence

A few days ago, I posted a letter I sent to my Christian counterpart. Here is his reply, and my answer to him: Dear goodatheist, Thanks for replying. I just read everything you said and I agree on some issues with you. I also can understand why you became an atheist. If I was probably in your position I would become one too because of the bad experience and of the education the Greek Mythology class. I also ...

Christian rationalist points blaming finger at atheists

Let's face it; we're used to being generally despised; it's so unsurprising, in fact, that when I fell upon this site, www.christianfaithandreason.com, I practically glossed over the familiar rhetoric of atheists are deluded and wrong. Had I done so, I would have missed the opportunity to read an article by the obscure author of Letters to a Christian Nation: Counterpoint. Although the title may sound lik ...

Pope backs Intelligent Design

If you want any solid proof that a Pope is as flawed, ignorant, and uneducated as the rest of us, look no further than Benedict XVI. When he isn't busy making controversial statements about Islam, he likes to take a breather by trying to dismantle evolution by means of Natural Selection by perpetually pointing at dusty old tomes. His latest blunder comes care of an off collar remark asking: "[h]ow many of t ...
