Richard Dawkins on The Greatest Show on Earth

Richard Dawkins talks about why it's time for a book setting out the evidence for evolution, when calling someone ignorant isn't an insult, and how the media have made him into a militant atheist.


Jury in on heroin ban

Inequality has been a constant theme in illicit drugs. Australia's first laws on drugs in the late 19th century banned the smoking of opium in South Australia, Victoria and NSW. The only opium smokers then were the Chinese working in the goldfields.


Once again, we find ourselves looking at studies that show the zero tolerance is a waste of time. Conservatives insist that they are making progress on their War On Drugs... but it looks more and more like at least as dead a duck as their War On Terror.

Jennifer McCreight's talk on her visit to the Creation Museum

Jennifer McCreight, President of the Society of Non-Theists and senior majoring in Genetics and Evolution at Purdue University recaps her visit to the Creation Museum, a multi-million dollar enterprise by Answers in Genesis to spread the gospel of literal Biblical Creation. The museum teaches that the Earth is only 6,000 years old, evolution is a lie, and human reason and science are dangerous. Its child friendly environment complete with animatronic dinosaurs and a petting zoo is worrisome, to say the least.

Jesus. All About Lies is an about-time media campaign developed by people who use reason. It aims to motivate people to use reason, rather than rely soley on institutions historically built on power, for the basis of their morals. We are aiming to run outreach events for the general public which are promoted by thinking people and through the website.

Another pointless Xtian hate fest

Therefore in the 20th century atheism lies behind Mao Zedung, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot. Atheists seem to be behind not just abortion but eugenics, family planning, radical feminism and the gay movement, political extremes of capitalism and communism and practically every evil I can think of.


I don't expect them to post my response:

Once again I, an atheist, am able to take the high moral ground over theists. I don't hate you. I'm not accusing you of crimes you haven't committed. You people should have a long hard look at your bible and see if it says that you should be judging others... that sort of thing. Some of the unpopular parts of your bible.

Bad people do bad things. Good people do good things. I cannot believe for a moment that any one of the people on this board would start a massacre if they lost their faith. People all over the world lose their religious convictions every day. Show me the statistics that prove that this directly causes massacres. It should be, if you are right, that you would be able to show statistically that within (say) 30 days of not believing in any god people are (say) 50% more likely to kill more than one person. Show some facts instead of baseless accusations. I'm not seeing the word 'atheist' come up many times on Wikipedia's List of Massacres.

It is pointless to try to tally up the deaths. Christianity has its hands dripping with blood and is in no position to criticize others. What you are doing here and now on this blog is inciting hatred, xenophobia and division. These are the things that caused the most bloody chapters in human history, not disbelief in someone else's creation fairy tale.

People mistakenly think that atheism is a moral code. It is not. It simply states the lack of belief in a god or gods. Just as the people posting here don't believe in Allah or the Australian Aboriginal Dream Time, I don't believe your claim that the god of the christian bible exists. After all of these creation myths are discarded an atheist decides on a moral code. It can be as simple as the codes attributed to the fictional character Jesus: 'Do unto others as you would have the do unto you'. This is a creed adopted all over the world by many religious figures and philosophers. I tend towards the Humanist Ethical Codes (such as this: ). Note that 4 of the list of ten aren't wasted on the vanity of a jealous god's dislike of other gods and petty need to be worshipped 24/7.

Anyway, I don't expect this post to be put up. I guess I'll put it on my blog so as to have not wasted my time in writing it. Time, after all, is precious when there is no offer of a magical second life.

Church groups say that 16 year old girls should stay at home quietly rather than sail around the rule, no exception.

Schoolgirl's solo sail 'irresponsible'

BNE Times link:

Jessica Watson, now 15, announced plans yesterday to circumnavigate the globe by herself in an attempt to become the youngest person ever to sail solo non-stop around the world.

So, she wants to do it and her parents don't mind. The scene is set for the moral majority to start going on and on about it:

First cab off the rank:

Bill Muehlenberg, secretary of the Family Council of Victoria, said the trip was "irresponsible".

"It sounds fairly reckless indeed given that even old experienced sailors can get into a lot of strife," Mr Muehlenberg told ABC radio.

Second cab off the rank:

But John Morrissey, of the Australian Family Association, said the trip was too risky.

"I'm a secondary teacher and I've been teaching 15 year-old girls for 42 years and I'd be amazed if any of them could cope with something like that," Mr Morrissey said.

So, they have an opinion, like arseholes, everyone's got one. The organisations that they represent are chronically ignorant about child protection. Most child sexual abuse comes from their cherished family model or direct from the churches themselves. Family, ironically, is a topic that "Family" associations are chronically ignorant about. They would do better to be silent and be thought fools.

Non-belief is belief... WTF?

Atheist Camel looks at the atheism is a religion flawed logic.

A theist emailing me at Eternal Earthbound Pets tells me that since I have no belief in the existence of a God, that non-belief is therefore a belief, and thus equates to a religion.

Modern geocentrism

Modern geocentrism is the belief by extant groups that Earth is the center of the universe as described by classical geocentric models. This belief is often based on Biblical verses and is most common among American Protestants. This belief is directly opposed to scientific evidence that the Sun is essentially the gravitational center of the solar system, and that the location of the Earth is not privileged.

No, really. They think that the Sun revolves around the earth cause it says so in the bible. The Flat Earth is only a blow to the head away.
