Dear Coke Talk: the best atheist blog you’ve never heard of

It doesn’t much resemble the blogs here at FTB, but Dear Coke Talk is still a totally awesome blog written by an atheist who frequently has great things to say about religion. Here’s an example from earlier this week:

Just out of curiosity here… How do you think you’re going to feel when it turns out there is a God, and a heaven, and a hell. I find the idea of atheism more amusing with each atheist I meet (only two so far), especially being a muslim. No judgment or anything, but seriously… How awesomely fucked up will that be for you?

I know how secretly terrified you are of your own death. No judgment or anything, but seriously… how awesomely fucked up will that be for you?

If this woman isn’t in your feed reader, she should be.

    Heh, that’s a great response.

    Seriously though, this kind of stuff makes me wonder if I’d still be religious if I’d had the winning team attitude these people did. Instead, I was taught that the gate to heaven was narrow and few travelled it and that camels could pass through the eyes of needles more easily than a rich person could enter heaven. All of that boiled down to me, and mostly everyone on earth, not making the cut. There was no smug sense of salvation at all.

    So, I wonder at all these jerkwads who think they’re saved. Is it possible for them to understand what kind of hell any heaven run by a deity who rewards such as they would actually be like?

    Another good, gnu atheist one from there:

    You don’t know any more about the nature of the universe than I do. All you’ve done is surrendered your rational thought to an ancient cult in exchange for peace of mind. That is inherently close minded.
