  • 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

The Jesus Myth


I tend to doubt the historicity of Jesus. Why you might ask. To be honest I have not seen any compelling evidence anywhere. Particularly none to mention anywhere outside of the bible. I am well aware of the usual claim concerning the similarity to Mithras and other ancient myths. I don’t really want to address the myth from that side though. Of course I will look at it from outside the bible and as I did concerning the pious fraud in the sermon on the mount I will once again turn to the Jewish Talmud. Continue reading

Christian Fraud


Once again a Christian brought up the passage from Josephus as extra biblical evidence for the historicity of Jesus. Kinda funny considering Christians have been claiming the same for 17 centuries yet even Christian scholars do not claim the passage is fully legitimate. Antiquities by Josephus was written sometime after 90 CE so that is 19 centuries ago. Why have Christians only been claiming the passage as  evidence for 17? Evidence points to the passage being forged by Eusebius sometime in the early 4th century coincidentally at the time of Constantine’s Nicaean council. Continue reading

Scientific Genesis

Ever since I first read Michael Shermer’s Genesis Revisited I thought it was a great piece that showed the absurdities of the creotards creationists and IDiots Intelligent design believers. Without further introduction let me present the video version which makes it even funnier.

Is life unique? That is a question asked by all religions and not surprisingly all religions claim it is. They also are wrong as I will attempt to show in this article. Continue reading

Why I Am Not Anti-Christianity

Faith

Lots of people ask me why I am so anti-Christianity, unfortunately here in the USA that is what most people say. Guess part of the stigma of being an atheist is being misunderstood or as I like to say, atheism is myth understood. Continue reading

A Short Conversation With A Christian


Portrait of Epicurus, founder of the Epicurean...

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

I went shopping Sunday afternoon at Meijer and as I was in line at the cashier, because I hate those self-checkout lines, the old lady standing in front of me and I started talking. Being a Sunday and this being a quite religious area she brought up the topic of religion. Specifically she brought up her pastor’s sermon from that morning that was about pagans, which Christians define as godless heathens and not Wiccans et al. To paraphrase what she said was that everyone who does not believe in god is a fool like Psalm 14:1 says, as it turns out that is the verse her pastor preached about, and in her opinion all ‘heathen atheists’ were brain damaged otherwise they would believe in god.  I decided that I couldn’t go on talking without telling the lady that I was an atheist and asked her if that made me a fool since I apparently wasn’t one before. In a comical twist she tried to claim that I wasn’t a fool but all the other god deniers were fools and again she added that in her opinion they were brain damaged. Guess being a glutton for punishment, since I am brain damaged, I kept talking to the lady. Continue reading
