By CW Brown, Mark W. Gura, and Nina Rose Marina “If your religious beliefs conflict with scientific facts, too bad for your religious beliefs. The universe is not going to rearrange itself to conform with your ignorance.” Science is a systematic, logical, reason-based study of reality. It utilizes reproducible and verifiable experiments, peer-review, and prediction models to test past observations, predict future observations and to correct and eliminate errors. Is it perfect? No, but there is no other methodology in… Read more

Guest post by Daniel Reynoso Part 3 of 7 “The eternal hourglass of existence is turned upside down again and again, and you with it, a speck of dust”   Nietzsche: A Cranky Bigot? (370) Another myth that clings to Nietzsche’s legacy is that he was a curmudgeonly old crank who offered nothing but scathing criticism of the world around him. The image is one of a pessimistic philosopher, a miserly man who sat alone in his room scribbling away in… Read more

Guest post by Daniel Reynoso Part 2 of 7 “There are no facts, only interpretations” I want to state some qualifications as to why I can speak so authoritatively on this topic. I’m no professional academic, but I do hold degrees in History and Philosophy, and I’ve been studying the life and writings of Friedrich Nietzsche for over 20 years now. More importantly, I’ve read Nietzsche’s works several times and have listened to the audio versions of his books COUNTLESS times…. Read more

Guest post by Daniel Reynoso Part 1 of 7 “I am only responsible for what I say not for what you understand.”     What do you think of when you hear the name ‘Friedrich Nietzsche’? If you’re like most people, your mind probably jumps to images of beady eyes, an intense stare, and, of course, a wildly unkempt mustache! This iconic image of Friedrich Nietzsche—actually taken very late in his life after he had already suffered a mental breakdown and… Read more

By CW Brown, Mark W. Gura, and John W. Loftus “All things considered, which of these two people is more likely to have written a book that contains a realistic version of where life came from?” Who is more likely to know how the natural world works, ancient humans who lived thousands of years ago, or modern scientists? The Bible states that “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the… Read more

By Mark W. Gura, CW Brown, and Nina Rose Marina “Dear doubting minister, it’s not you, it’s the Bible.” Jerry Dewitt. Most people want to do the right thing. Too often, society and culture characterize what the right thing should be. When what is right and wrong is shaped by cultures that are based on Abrahamic religions, ministers, rabbis, and imams serve as morality role models to their flocks. These religious leaders spend countless hours studying and interpreting their holy… Read more

By Mark W Gura, CW Brown, and Nina Rose Marina An old meme which you are probably used to seeing says: “When you wish upon a star, you’re actually a few million years late. The star is dead. Just like your dreams.”                      (new version of the meme) Upon closer examination, this old meme doesn’t make much sense, so we changed it a bit above. If you see a bright object… Read more

All of you who don’t believe in Horus, I just want you to know, “HORUS LOVES YOU!” Suppose you lived in Egypt 2,500 years ago, and your friends, family, and culture constantly told you that the god Horus loved you. That not worshiping Horus would lead to a lousy afterlife, and that evil things would befall you here-and-now if you didn’t repent. People would also urge you to develop a personal relationship with Horus, as that would give you clout… Read more

“How thoughtful of God to arrange matters so that, wherever you happen to be born, the local religion always turns out to be the true one.” Richard Dawkins Article by Mark W Gura and CW Brown Imagine being born, raised and educated in Pakistan. You would be told that Allah resides in heaven and that he judges your every action and thought. You would be taught that Muhammad was God’s last prophet and that there would never be any other… Read more

I made mini-mes, but they made me mad, so I drowned them all. Then, they made me angry again. So, I decided to impregnate a mini-me with myself so that I could kill myself to myself for my mini-mes. According to Abrahamic religions, God wanted humans to have free will, but then he punished humanity for exercising its free will, first by creating mortality and second by drowning almost all humans in existence. Later, Christianity comes into the picture and… Read more
