I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

20 Reasons To Abandon Christianity

"20 Reasons To Abandon Christianity" discusses, as you may well be able to guess, reasons to abandon christianity. The site speaks for itself. I particularly like the arguement against faith in scientific theory being the same faith as faith in religion.

If god is dead, who gets his house?

If god is dead, who gets his house?

This is an interesting article about whether atheists need to establish a church like structure. This, I think, would be more for the benefit of theists. This would let them categorise atheists. Theism is about division.

The time and resources required to create an atheist church (sic) are better spent. Sponsor a third world child and volunteer at meals on wheels. This would take a similar amount of time and money and would make the world a better place. Sitting around in church patting each other on the back because you're all off to heaven might make you feel better but it does nothing.

The comments talks about atheist hostility towards theists. I don't really care what others beleive unless it affects me. It starts to affect me when religious groups want others to conform to their moral code. For example, if someone wants an abortion, that's up to them. It doesn't affect my world. This is other people's problems and has nothing to do with me.

When people start stopping valid scientific research because of their nonsence beliefs, this affects me. When religions want to ban books or videos because of their nonsense beliefs they have to expect a reaction.

I don't want to see the world fall back into another dark age. Countries are falling one by one under the control of religious nut bags directed by their imaginary friends.

Turkey is the latest to fall. Turkey was a secular democracy now the Queen of England is greated by the President's wife wearing a head scarf, the simbol of religious oppression of women by men (not by a god - man created god).

They say fight fire with fire. Fight islam with fundamentalist christianity. That's like fucking for virginity!

Do good things in the world because the world is better and it's all we've got.

The Good Atheist

The Good Atheist isn't trying to attack people's beliefs (no matter how odd). They are trying to keep faith out of areas where it has no knowledge.

And theists say that atheists never create art...

A poem from:

I thought I saw an atheist, once, walking down the street.
I checked for horns, I checked for tail, I checked for cloven feet;
Began to tremble frightfully—my heart was in my throat—
Then sighed in happy recognition, for ‘twas but a goat.

I thought I saw an atheist, down near a swollen stream
With scaly skin, and blood so cold, I couldn’t breathe to scream!
I looked into his bulging eyes, and prayed “God, grant my wish”
Then laughed in my embarrassment—it only was a fish.

I thought I saw an atheist, with fur and pointed claws,
And wicked teeth for chewing up Judeo-Christian laws,
I ran, and tripped, and fell to earth, then hid behind a log—
It caught me, though, and licked my face—of course, it was a dog.

I thought I saw an atheist, though cleverly disguised
Not giant and reptilian, but human, normal sized,
It looked to be engaging in productive, useful labor;
But no, this was no atheist—this person was my neighbor!

I thought I saw an atheist; in fact, I saw a few!
My neighbor, and the grocer, and the cop, and maybe you!
I even found some in the church, right there beneath the steeple;
It turns out, to my great surprise… that atheists are people.

No Atheists in Foxholes

What does this mean? Are theists trying to say that atheists are cowards? I suspect that this is their point. Upon first hearing this saying I assumed that this meant that atheists were too smart to fall for the theist war cry... I guess my glass was half full on this one.

Anywho, the former is the backhanded insult directed at atheists.

The "Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers" are, understandably, not happy about being labelled cowards. It appears that serving country is not enough for the army. Army personelle report being discriminated against as a result of their atheist views.

There are lots of atheist T-shirts at Cafepress.


Was Galileo a theist?

This shirt says it all:

Galileo was no idiot. Only an idiot could believe that science requires martyrdom - that may be necessary in religion, but in time a scientific result will establish itself. - David Hilbert

Religion in action.

A couple have been stoned to death for eloping near the border between Afganistan and Pakistan. This is what happens when common law is discarded in favour of religious law. This woman was the property of her husband. How can a religion be called loving if love isn't allowed?
