Suicide Bombings are not political in nature

In a large Suffi shrine in Southern Pakistan, two young men with explosives strapped on their backs navigate nervously through a packed crowd. They are looking for an ideal place to murder as many of their fellow human beings as possible. The plan is surprisingly evil: the second boy is there to detonate himself the moment help arrives to care for the victims of the first attack. As chance would have it, Um ...

Billy Connolly on suicide bombing

The actual "number" of virgins waiting for these suicide bombers is 72, which makes you wonder where they all come from. I've had sex with a few virgins in my day. Let me assure you; the sex was terrible. I would trade in all 72 of them for just 3 experienced MILFs. They know what they are doing, they are sexually ambitious, and best of all, they don't care if it's magical the first time. The only virgins a ...

Norway attacked by Christian extremist

When innocent people are killed and the fog of war has yet to be lifted, it's not uncommon for the press to assume that any terrorist actions must be the work of Islamic fundamentalists. As far as they are concerned, only the Muslim faith can indiscriminately kill innocent civilians. How easily they forget men like Timothy McVeigh or Scott Roeder; men motivated by their religion (in their cases, Christianit ...

Atheists are perverse!

With newfound confidence comes new problems. As atheists, we're beginning to see a backlash against rationalism from our sectarian counterparts who feel threatened by our lack of faith. They see it as "perverse" and a "threat to society". That's according to Italy's Foreign Minister Franco Frattini who called on Muslims, Jews and Christians to unite against atheism, materialism and relativism. Christians al ...

Malaysian Muslims attack Christians for using the word Allah

You know what I love about atheism? We don't confer words with special powers. This gives us an advantage; you won't see angry atheists taking to the streets because the word "evolution" is being misused (even though we might get tempted when jackasses like Kirk Cameron spew their anti-evolutionary nonsense around), and when's the last time an atheist firebombed a building to punish the sacrilegious use of ...

More sectarian violence in Pakistan

Imagine a philosophy that regards human life as worthless and cheap, where adherents are told to kill others who do not share their beliefs, and where huge segments of the population are kept ignorant and subservient. Well, you don't need to use your imagination; this type of philosophy already exists, and it has a colorful name: Islam. Pakistan was the scene of more violence today as a market in Peshawar w ...

Muslim extremist jailed for arson

You might remember a few months ago, I wrote a story about the book, The Jewel of Medina, and the subsequent firebombing of her publisher's home by Muslim extremists. It seems now the case has gone to trial, with Ali Beheshti (pictured above holding a gun) and his two accomplices sentenced to four and a half years behind bars. The judge issued this statement, which I strongly agree with: "If you choose to l ...

How much control does the media have over us?

One of my recent tirades against Fox News prompted me to write about the degree of control mainstream media has over society. This piece is not meant to lay all the blame of society on their shoulders; rather it is an invitation to consider the fact that perhaps we do not all make rational choices based on a careful examination of the evidence. I am the first to admit it is often easier and more expedient t ...

Terrorism has different meanings

I read an interesting article on the Christian Science Monitor about the percentage of people in Muslim countries who favor bombing civilians, and the numbers reveal far more Americans are willing to commit this act than they are. If you need this put in perspective, consider the image we have in the West of a terrorist is a Muslim guy wearing a dynamite covered belt bomb, while in Muslim countries a terror ...

Bombs away!

Unreasonable faith asks the following question: Who would Jesus bomb? His answer: everyone! Although I agree with him that most fundamentalists are simply aching for Armageddon, I can't blindly assert they would seek to annihilate the rest of us. Take, for example, the Branch Davidians. If you don't remember these guys, they were the loony group who built a huge compound in Waco Texas that was eventually bu ...
