Canada executing its citizens through proxy

A young man in Saudi Arabia is less than a month away from being beheaded for his part in a school yard brawl that ended with the death of an 18 year old student. Mohammed Kohail, who is a Canadian citizen, is only a few days from the chopping block, and Canada is seriously dragging its feet, and has refused to demand clemency, or take any diplomatic action. This is all part of the Conservative Administrati ...

The fear card

If I told you large groups of fundamentalists were threatening to commit acts of terror over the release of a simple movie criticizing Islam and the Qur'an, I'm sure none of you would be surprised. We take this kind of ridiculousness for granted now. You can't release a cartoon, a book, or a documentary without fear of reprisal, and now, rather than only make threats at the authors of such works (which was ...

Everytime you don’t recycle, baby Jesus cries

Ok, well, maybe baby Jesus doesn't cry, but that hasn't stopped the Vatican from including failure to recycle as one of the new deadly sins. In case you were unaware of what a deadly sin is, it's a ticket straight to hell for eternity (remember the sins of envy, gluttony, and greed? They're still there, but there have been some additions) . So, if you threw out your soda can in the garbage rather than the r ...

Why psychics hate Derren Brown

There's a long stranding belief that astrologers, psychics, and Tarot readers generally do no harm. Most people who read their horoscope do so out of sheer curiosity, and because they enjoy being surprised by the occasional reading that seems genuine. Of course, this belief often disregards the giant disfavor done to individuals who often rely on such quacks to tell them what do with their lives. The techni ...

Quebec Mennonite school shutting down

The Quebec government has threatened legal action against a group of Mennonites who operate a small school in the little town of Roxton Falls. The school, which does not teach the theory of evolution, and which relies heavily on the Bible for all of its classes, has no accredited teachers, and their programs have not been provincially approved. The religious group has therefore decided to uproot themselves, ...

A continued correspondence

A few days ago, I posted a letter I sent to my Christian counterpart. Here is his reply, and my answer to him: Dear goodatheist, Thanks for replying. I just read everything you said and I agree on some issues with you. I also can understand why you became an atheist. If I was probably in your position I would become one too because of the bad experience and of the education the Greek Mythology class. I also ...

Nigerian cross-dressers face possible execution

A group of 18 men in Northern Nigeria are facing a possible death sentence for taking part in a gay wedding. The men were dressed as women, and were promptly arrested for alleged sodomy. Unfortunately for them, the town of Bauchi is under Sharia law, and so the men face the possibility of being stoned to death. For those of you unaware of what Sharia law is, in Arabic it translates directly to the way. It ...

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 ...

Christian rationalist points blaming finger at atheists

Let's face it; we're used to being generally despised; it's so unsurprising, in fact, that when I fell upon this site, www.christianfaithandreason.com, I practically glossed over the familiar rhetoric of atheists are deluded and wrong. Had I done so, I would have missed the opportunity to read an article by the obscure author of Letters to a Christian Nation: Counterpoint. Although the title may sound lik ...

How big is heaven anyway?

There are some people who behave in such a strange manner, and believe in such terrifyingly silly things, that you have to take a moment in your day to see for yourself the depth of man's delusions. This week, an interesting video was presented to me, where a supposed expert makes his predictions as to the relative size of heaven. His conclusion: heaven is about 7,000,000 times bigger than New York. At firs ...
