Dave Dies - July 20, 2019 - Dave knew he had taken the corner too fast as the car careened off the embankment. Dave knew this was serious when he felt the vertebrae snap in his neck. Dave knew he was dying as his vision tunneled into black. Dave knew also that time hadn’t stopped as he could feel moments passing in […]
America is a Secular Nation, Get Over it Christians. - March 8, 2019 - Religious Right activists and evangelicals like to claim that the United States was founded as a Christian nation. Even some politicians agree. Even now we see Supreme Court judges who hold this view. The outcome of this debate holds the very future of our nation but an important point has become obfuscated within all the […]
A New Age Of Reason - March 6, 2019 - Recently I was asked if you’re so secure in your atheism, why do you need to trash what others may sincerely believe? I was truly surprised by this question after the last two years of religious freedom laws being imposed on all of us in America. After seeing public servants turn their sincerely held beliefs […]
Why I’ve stopped listening to religious arguments - December 26, 2018 - “See you guys had things pretty chill but then you decided that you were going to be dicks about your bullshit beliefs being real. So now, you’re gonna pay with your extinction.” There were many years which I gave religion the benefit of the doubt when it came to it’s impact on our society. I […]
The Only Real Proof Of God - December 13, 2018 - In identifying myself as atheist I’m not denying god exists but expressing how there is no reliable evidence that any god exists. This is because as an atheist I refuse to look at the world through a metaphor of believing what the universe is but try to experience the universe as it is. Instinctively, I […]
Religion Is A Lifestyle Choice - October 28, 2018 - We’ve all heard believers say homosexuality is a “lifestyle choice” but if anything could be truly defined as a lifestyle choice it is religion. For lifestyle by definition is the way in which a person or group lives. Religion has demonstrated it has a distinct way in which these people choose to live. “I know, […]
You Believers Have Convinced Me - October 23, 2018 - "You've given up on making the world a peaceful place, or even a safer place anymore instead you want a godly place where your faith can finally be unquestioned and imposed by civil law." #SecularSunday
Op Ed: Faith Is Not An Alternative Fact - October 8, 2018 - At some point we all must rely on faith for certain situations. However when religious faith replaces logical analysis as a method to determine common reality it should be noted faith by it’s nature is meaningless and dangerously susceptible to becoming a corrupting influence. Common faith allows the acceptance of unverifiable explanations as actionable so […]
Humanity’s Only Hope Is To Abandon God - September 11, 2018 - America was attacked on #911 not by terrorists but by RELIGION. Osama Bin Laden’s statement was that America could not fight against those who devoted themselves to god to the point of suicide. So with the typical “fight fire with fire” attitudes, America responded with it’s own Christian and religious fanaticism and in the process […]
Who Wants To Live Forever - May 20, 2018 - So if you could live forever as in a post-mortal afterlife, what would you do with it? Here’s a few thoughts on the possibilities available from the folks who claim to have the answers. The Metaphysical Tourist So we become a spiritual traveller without the burden of luggage. The ghost without the shell as it […]
Those Dirty Foreigners… - May 13, 2018 - “The illegals aren’t here to become Americans or because they love our way of life…” “but they are illegal. We are overran here.” “Stop bringing you families here illegally!” “It’s just a matter of time we will be a country filled with under educated and dependent people…” These tragic comments collected from Americans who believe they are […]
Can We Ever Forgive Religion - May 4, 2018 - There will come the day evangelical Christians will see the error of their ways. It will be after some horrifyingly epoch defining crisis that all humanity will pay with yet more needless suffering. The true believers will rise shakily to their feet to look around at the devastated landscape they dreamed would be so much […]
The Secular Limits of Religious Freedom - April 27, 2018 - Andrew Seidel in the Salt Lake Tribune laid out out some principles that are worth noting about religious freedoms. Especially how religious freedoms are not absolute and more importantly how actions based on sincere belief are not unlimited. Too many times I personally have run into this barrier during arguments and Mr. Seidels explanation helped […]
Another End of World Payday - April 19, 2018 - Even Christians are starting to admit that this whole thing is kinda making them look silly and THAT is saying quite a lot coming from them.
The Trap Of Religion - April 14, 2018 - Religion claims to provide moral and ethical enlightenment as opposed to the pagan anarchy that it views as the only alternative. But this enlightenment is inclusionary to the specific belief system producing a contradiction to a unified approach to the nature of understanding existence. Despite the denial of adherents that their religion is for everyone it is explicitly […]
The God That Hates - April 14, 2018 - As the old saying goes, “God is love”. But if you believe your god hates sin, what does that say about your god? Good = god, Bad = devil If we could for a moment contemplate that the mental construct of god is the aspiration of the human mind to personify positive emotion and behavior. […]
