Theists actually believe this stuff!

More on fundie baby starvers

Ria Ramkissoon insists that her guilty plea to the murder charge relating to starving her 1 year old son for being possessed because he wouldn't (perhaps couldn't) say amen after meals. CNN coverage.

For me the problem with this coverage is that it doesn't explicitly say something along the lines of: "In another christian nutjob case..."

Why is this behaviour being referred to in delicate language? Why is this woman being given respect along the lines that she couldn't help doing this, you see, it was her religious belief at the time?

SMH opinion column

A.J. Papandrea, uni student, wonders why we can't have a bus campaign.

Christian cruelty at its worst

The mother of a young boy stopped feeding him because he wouldn't say 'amen' at the end of meals. They just let him starve to death. This kid needs to be given a Atheist Valour award, an award I just made up... but it sounds cool, doesn't it?

She pleaded guilty to murder but will withdraw the plea when he is resurrected. WTF!

With monotonous regularity.

The US is the most religious first world nation yet with monotonous regularity we see mass murder occuring there. Christians automatically blame non-christians for these things. Their religious views are never reported. However, if 90% Americans are religious, on average I'd imagine that they commit 90% of the crime. The only stat we have to compare is the one stating that 95% people in gaol believe in god. Non-religious people are under represented in gaol.

Anyway, here's another christian murder sceen:

And a hit and run:
The article doesn't say that they are christians but, on percentages, they probably are.

So, what's the point? Fundies will blame atheists without evidence. They feel that it is wrong and that they get their morality from christianity so the person commiting the crime must not be christian. I say that the nature of christianity is to dispise others. Because I'm not a member of your church you do not value me. God will forgive them not matter what evil they commit. Christianity isn't making the US a better place, it is just making people think that they are better than others.

These were christian crimes.

Thoughts with Jack Handley

Forget about theist thoughts of the day, Jack will lead the way.

For example:

One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going
to take my nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old
burned-out warehouse. "Oh no," I said, "Disneyland burned down."

He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a
pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but
decided to go home instead.

UN loses the plot.

The UN has passed a resolution outlawing Blasphemy. WTF?!

Fundies Representative Fun

Re: Jobs. Saying climate change is not important is putting all the people who want to make wind generators, solar cells, nice new hydrogen fuel cell cars, hydroelectric, geothermal and wave power stations, bicycle factories, the nice people at Tesla cars.... My point? New ideas make new jobs. What about all the poor wagon wheel makers and farriers? Electricity made candle makers unemployed. Who elected this guy? Does he really represent his constituents or just his own wishfull delusions.

Watch for the reaction from the lady sitting behind him when he starts quoting the bible.

The Filter

Karen watched this video with some fundies at a seminar. They thought is was positive towards religion. Karen thought is was accusing religion. It was a good indication of the internal filter at work. Fantastic video. :)

Holes in scientific theories.

Fundies say that there are to many holes in scientific theory. Jeffrey Kluger says:
"A fishnet is made up of a lot more holes than strings, but you can't therefore argue that the net doesn't exist. Just ask the fish."

Dawkins' Converts Corner

People who have left their religion and adopted a naturalistic world view tell of their de-programming.

Dawkins - Religious labelling of children.

Dawkins discusses the religious labelling of children. The child is not a christian child, the child is a child of christian parents. Likewise, the child is not an atheist child but a child of atheist parents.

Bible Quotes.

It doesn't matter if these things are taken in context or out of context, you cannot tell me that human morality is based on this nonsense.

Christian love in email form.

Dawkins reads some hate mail from christians. If this is the kind of being good that religion teaches, I'm glad to have no part of it.

Intelligent falling vs the THEORY of gravity

If fundies want to put intelligent design up as a competing theory to evolution then intelligent falling has to be put us as a competing theory to gravity.

Religion teaching people how to be good, the Israeli army way.

Some soldiers in the Israeli army are coming forward about their orders and actions in the latest Gaza war. They are telling stories of unarmed women and children being shot by heavily armed soldiers. Is this religion teaching people how to be good. The very thing that religious people accuse atheists of is the very thing that they condone and do, freely, willingly and all too regularly.

This is a big case of the school yard adage: What you say is what you are.

Pastor gets caught trolling at

A pastor has been on boards pretending to be an atheist on Unreasonable Faith. What gave it away was his posts containing the kinds of stupid statements that are normally attributed to atheists by fundy nutbags.

IDiots always want to debate. This format would work well for me.

What if all the atheists left America?

Some stats on what America would look like if all the atheists left. Expelling all the atheists is something often called for by Fundy nutjobs.
