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 ...

Don’t believe in God in Kentucky? Get ready for jail time!

It's not enough that religious folks are always shoving their religion down our throats; they also now want to enforce the 'crime' of not believing in their invisible friend. If you can believe this (and trust me, I'm still in shock), the state of Kentucky has effectively declared war on non-believers, threatening jail time for anyone who fails to "recognize the primacy of the Christian God": In Kentucky, a ...

Teen sentenced to 10 years of hard church

If there's a time in one's life fraught with tragedy, it's probably the hormone saturated period in our lives known as our 'teen years'. How many of us have done something so incredibly stupid it still haunts us today? Tyler Alred will need to live with the fact his drunk driving took the life of his friend and passenger, 16-year-old John Luke Dum. He'll also need to spend the next decade going to church re ...

Pakistan sentences man to death for blasphemy

The bravery of religion is yet again on display, this time in Pakistan where a man has been sentence to death for supposedly insulting the prophet Mohammed. There's a familiar pattern that arises in these parts: the predominately Muslim population has a few altercations with other religious groups that are Christian, and suddenly the lone person is accused of blasphemy and is usually beaten, followed by the ...

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 ...

Irish PM doesn’t want to feel rushed into changing abortion law

Since I first blogged about this a few days ago, the death of Savita Halappanavar has caused a lot of understandable outrage in Ireland. It seems her highly avoidable passing has rudely awakened a generation of young people who are shocked their own health could be threatened due to the persistence of religious dogma. Even more shocking, they're about to realize change is impossibly slow, given the ones hol ...

Doctors refused life saving abortion because “it’s a Catholic country”

Ireland may be quickly de-converting to atheism faster than any other country, but that certainly doesn't mean the fight against superstition and religious indoctrination is over. If anything, the stakes have gotten higher, especially when it comes to certain key issues which don't seem to go away. A young woman by the name of Savita HalappanavarĀ was told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pai ...

Shocking: Atheist kids dare to express themselves

If you've never heard of The BlazeĀ (like probably 99% of the population), it's a creation of Glenn Beck and his conservative production company, Mercury Radio Arts (the irony of naming your production company after a metal that makes one insane is probably lost on these people). If the site isn't regularly scaring people into buying gold, it feeds them pseudo information that plays into people's fears and p ...
