Tired Christian claim #1: atheism is a religion

I thought I might slowly start making a list of tired claims Christians perpetually make about us atheists. Think of it as a huge FAQ that helps you answer some annoying claims people make about atheism without actually understanding it. First off, you might have heard this gem floating around; atheism is some kind of religion, since not believing in god is a type of faith. For instance, if I claim life aro ...

Pathetic video attempts to make atheism appear evil

This video attempts to make a direct link between atheists like Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins with psychotic revolutionaries like Maximilien Robespierre. The only problem, of course, is Robespierre was actually a deist, and although he may have called himself reasonable and rational, I think this quote obviously shows the man was not quite right in the head: If virtue be the spring of a popular government ...

Joss Whedon talks about Atheism

Cool speech. I like how he calls for people to educate themselves. Although he admits it will not necessarily lead to secularism, it will at least make everyone think for themselves. Now if only he can clean up the mess that is his latest show, Dollhouse, then I'll be a fan again. Man, that show sucks... ...

Atheism sucks, apparently

Here's a crappy website that thinks it's laid out an airtight case against atheism. Considering the fact geocities is dead and buried, I wonder if anyone will bother migrating this steaming pile of crap to some other free hosting company. Here are some hilarious quotes: Second, the atheistic world view is irrational and cannot provide an adequate basis for intelligible experience. You see, an atheistic worl ...

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, ...

Is atheism politically deadly?

When I first asked myself this question, I concluded admitting to the American population that you are not a believer equates political seppuku. All of the 22 closet atheists sitting in Congress today agree, save one: Pete Stark. The Democratic senator from Northern California has stated he's an agnostic, but also admitted to not believing in a higher power. I can appreciate his diplomatic stance on religio ...

The LOLcats of Atheism

Here's a site which has my interest: LOLTheism, which pokes fun at religion using the LOLcats template of humor. It works pretty damn well. I humbly offer to you their latest entry: The best caption has to be they'll steal anything that isn't nailed down ...

Texas teacher fired for atheism and liberal attitudes

I know I have fans who live in Texas, so I don't want any of you to be too offended when I say it's a seriously messed up place. The latest bit of bad news comes from Brookland, where a teacher by the name of Richard Mullens was fired because parents and other faculty members thought he was an atheist, and way too 'liberal'. There's no indication he's an atheist, and Mr. Mullens has chosen to keep his relig ...

Careful, you might bring down atheism!

In the past, I've been critical of a number of atheists who have discouraged me from participating and expanding a broader secular movement. These 'naysayers' now have a name, according to Austin Cline. These are 'Uncle Tom Atheists', and they are, apparently, a big problem. I'd like to start by pointing out how terribly insulting that phrase is. I'm not black, but I have many friends who are, and this moni ...
