  • Atheist Quotes

    I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake. You are not second-class in the universe, deriving meaning and purpose from some other mind. You are not inherently evil--you are inherently human, possessing the positive rational potential to help make this a world of morality, peace and joy. Trust yourself.
    Dan Barker

    He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave.
    William Drummond

    The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
    Richard Dawkins

Micro, Macro And Darwinism Foolishness


I have been hearing these comments many times lately. For the most part I have heard them from fundajelical Christians who claim microevolution happens while there is no possible way macroevolution could happen. Also for some reason they continue to call the modern theory of evolution Darwinism as if there have been no advances in the theory and it was finalized by Darwin in 1859. It is also interesting to notice that fundajelicals often call evolutionary theory Darwinism as if they are saying “yes, we have an irrational belief in a religion but you have an ‘ism’ too.” The saddest part is that I have heard these same three statements made by a self-proclaimed agnostic that believes in an intelligent creator (which means he is a theist not an agnostic). Since these mistaken beliefs are apparently so widespread, I figured writing an article addressing them would be a very good idea. Continue reading

How Science Works And Some Logical Fallacies


Recently I have gotten a few emails through my contact form from three Christians saying that evolution has not been proven a fact and never will be. Then they went on essentially like good little soldiers in unison claiming that since evolution was never proven goddidit must be true. Besides being an either or fallacy, they all expressed a profound misunderstanding as to what science is and that prompted me to write this article. Continue reading

Evolution Will Be Falsified Within 100 Years?

Tiktaalik

Again I have been told  by a Christian fundagelical out here that evolution will undoubtedly be falsified within the next century. I really didn’t follow her ‘logic’ so I asked her to explain. Continue reading

Man Walked With Dinosaurs


Dinosaur Tracks, Paluxy River, Texas

Dinosaur Tracks

Once in a while I hear a Young Earth Creationist make that claim. Sometimes they even claim there is proof down in the Paluxy river outside of Glen Rose Texas. A few years ago I found myself near Dallas so my girlfriend (at the time) and I  decided to take a trip to the Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose which is about 70 miles away from Dallas.

Creation


The Creation of Adam

The Creation Of Adam

Today I want to take a break from cults and discuss something that irritates me to no end. That topic is creationism, specifically young Earth creationism. Old Earth creationism, in particular the day-age flavor, can be simply dismissed thanks to the only piece of logic to come from the YEC camp. Continue reading
