The whole game must have been an allegory… Which means the green turtles were actually evil atheists, and Bowser represents Satan, and Jesus spits fire! (via myconfinedspace) [tags]atheist, atheism[/tags] Read more

This is the most recent version of Minnesota Atheist August Berkshire’s list of the most unconvincing arguments for God: The list has nearly doubled since I first posted it! If you’d like to download a nicer PDF version, you can do that here. To reiterate what I said in the original posting, August has said the list was written in order to give Christians (and those of other faiths) “insight as to what arguments are not likely to work with… Read more

Look no further for the perfect present to get that atheist you know and love this holiday season: a godless giftcard! All you need is this image, this website, an amount of money to put on the card, and $5.95 to make it happen. Johnny Crow is hoping that this does not violate the site’s terms and conditions: … the only problem I can see is “Texts or images that display the views, opinions or beliefs of political groups or… Read more

Recently a remark by a Christian visiting here reminded me of something peculiar I have encountered from time to time that I had never known about before I started reading and discussing things on line, the notion of the “not real Christian.” I have heard several people who identify themselves as Christians say that because other people who identify themselves as Christians do not believe in such and such, or don’t agree with so and so, or haven’t done whatever,… Read more

Recently, hackers broke into the group profile and essentially killed it. They renamed it “jesus is love.” The 3000 “friends” of the group are gone. The regular posters on the group’s message board have been banned. Many discussion threads were… Read more

You may have already heard about how the famous atheist philosopher, Antony Flew, converted to deism a few years back. He now has a book out entitled There Is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind. Since then both atheists and Christians have reacted in predictable ways. While some Christians crow and flaunt Flew as some kind of trophy, some atheists have suggested that perhaps Flew is going senile in his old age and was simply… Read more

A bit of background on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA): [A national version of RFRA] was passed [in 1993] in response to the 1990 case of Employment Division v. Smith, where the U.S. Supreme Court upheld an Oregon law criminalizing the use of peyote even in religious ceremonies. In 1997, however, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a large part of RFRA, citing the Fourteenth Amendment. The Court stated that Congress overstepped its powers with those portions of RFRA. However,… Read more

You know that poem. The one that contains these lines: God, you said that once I decided to follow You, You would walk with me all the way but I noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints in the sand… And then God responds: … during your times of trials and suffering. When you see only one set of footprints in the sand it was then that I was carrying… Read more
