The Taliban of atheism

From Scrippsnews: In my younger and more vulnerable years I once got into a debate with a fundamentalist Christian about the morality of capital punishment. Her view was that the Bible sanctioned the death penalty, and as far as she was concerned that was the end of the matter. What struck me most about her attitude toward the subject was her contempt for anyone who might see the question differently. Recen ...

CNN attempts to debate atheism

I saw this video, and was unaware of CNN's attempt to discuss whether or not atheists were being discriminated against. Nevermind the fact that as a news organization; they are far more interested in making money from advertisers than in displaying any journalistic muscle, this so called 'panel' was populated entirely by individuals who were themselves believers. You might as well have a panel of southerner ...

Is atheism a religion?

As a writer, the appeal of discussing atheism stems largely from the fact that although its definition may be simple, the philosophies surrounding it are not. There are so many different responses to atheism that some have begun to call it a religion. But is this true? Is atheism a religion, and if not, does it emulate any of the elements of it? As I will show in this article, the answer to that question no ...

Time machine : Dawkins pushes atheism to the masses

TED.com is a website devoted to sharing ideas and concepts. On it you'll find tons of videos about all sorts of ideas, amongst them varying viewpoints on religion. This particular video is a 30 minute video lecture by Richard Dawkins recorded in April 2002: The session was titled 'The Design of Life', and the TED audience was probably expecting remarks about evolution's role in our history from biologist Ri ...

Skeptic-Al web-comic coming soon

I've been a busy boy. After 'retiring' from the atheism scene (yeah, like it's that fucking easy, genius), I set off to try a variety of projects that I felt could potentially pay the bills. When you're an entertainer, you try to cast a bit of a wide net; there's no way to know which project will take off, so it's best to have a few things going on. One of those projects was originally for the Richard Dawki ...

Hug an Atheist preview is out

Fans of the podcast will remember that last September, I interviewed young filmmaker Sylvia Broeckx (pronounced "Brooks") about an upcoming movie she was trying to fund through Indiegogo. I'm happy to report that not only did she receive her funding, but it appears she's released a teaser video for her upcoming production. Judging by the piece, I think we're in for a touching, inspirational film which shoul ...

For Canada’s “Office of Religious Freedom”, non-believers don’t matter

As much as we Canadians make fun of Americans (yes, I am a Canuck, people), the truth is that our own country isn't really that much better when it comes to religious interference in government. With the Conservative party in power, it seems as though they are intent on copying the American model: in other words, they wish to turn this country into a mini-sectarian state in order to please their highly reli ...

I don’t think you’re done reading, pal

Hey look, it's an atheist who converted to religion. All it took for him was: a) To read one book about atheism b) To think that one book would give him the needed skepticism to reject the joke that is C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity" c) To stop thinking critically immediately afterwards This guy was seduced by the morality argument? What, the 'feelings' you had couldn't be explained WITHOUT referring to a s ...

Answers in Genesis writes hilarious letter to atheists

For some odd reason, I love the idea that there are religious believers out there who try to convert atheists back to religion. I can't imagine a more pointless exercise. They really think there must be some magical argument to 'win us' back to the fold. They can't understand our decision not to believe in God is the result of years of slow and gradual change, ultimately leading to the conclusion that the p ...
