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 ...

‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ should return…this time for religion

I've always found America's obsession with the military disturbing. First and foremost, it is heavily populated by the poorest, least educated members of society who often have little choice in joining if they hope to have an education, or even a future outside of Walmart. You always hear on TV how much respect they should be given, due to their sacrifice in 'protecting freedom'. In reality, the military is ...

Can you believe this guy?

I don't often get trolled, but when I do, it's usually something epic. Take this "Marcus" character for instance: he commented on an article I wrote about a ridiculous book written called The Pink Swastika, by a religious fundy who claims Hitler and his thugs were actually a gang of 'homofascists', intent on corrupting the world with their 'gayness'. This revisionist history completely ignores the fact that ...

Bill O’Reilly calls David Silverman a Fascist

You have to admire American Atheist president David Silverman for trying to confront the beast that is Bill O'Reilly on his own show. It's a bit like trying to take on Grendel's mother in her own cave: unless you've got the strength of Beowulf, you're probably going to get chewed up. The problem with appearing on Bill's show is that his interview style goes a little something like this: "Shut up and say exa ...

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 ...

The Atheist who stole Christmas

Once upon a time there was a mean old atheist who didn't like the fact his government was showing obvious favoritism to the dominant religion of his fellow citizens. He dared to ask that other holiday displays not affiliated with the mythology of Jesus also be allowed to be publicly displayed, and a more inclusive form of festivities could be added, so as to reduce the alienation of others. Luckily, a lovab ...

Leo Igwe interview transcript

Jake: Today I have a very special guest, someone who is going to join me to talk about the problem of child witches in Africa as well as the conflation of religion and superstition in that region. I wanted to ask someone who has had their feet on the ground here, because, you know, I am an isolated blogger and I want to make sure that I am not just saying false information and with this in mind, I invited L ...

I know I shouldn’t feed this troll, but…

It's a bad idea to feed Internet trolls, but every once in a while I get a comment on a random article that I just can't resist writing a response to. This one appeared in an article entitled "Why is Christianity growing in China". Here's this clown's answer: It will be interesting to see atheists trying to uplift the human spirit with??? LOL, not to make fun of your beliefs dear "know it all", but it's bee ...

Shut up, you big meany faces!

Here's another "hey, atheists are being mean and should stop" article from someone clearly annoyed that people on Reddit have less than kind things to say about religion. If you want to find out why I call these guys Reddit Atheists, take a brief dip into the atheism subreddit. It is a place entirely defined by bitter, faux-enlightened young people sharing “thought-provoking” images about the horrific evils ...
