Will it be heaven or will it be hell? A quick tongue-in-cheek assessment.

According to Muslims, all good Muslims go to Islamic heaven & everybody else, including Christians, goes to Islamic hell. So, if Christians say …

Are Christianity & Islam Fundamentally Different?

Islam’s holy book is called the Qur’an. This holy book is a record of the many messages that Mohammed received from Allah, the God of Islam. These messages were relayed to Mohammed by the angel Gabriel. They started to arrive in 609 AD, and they continued to arrive at random intervals until Muhammad’s death in …

A Very Simple Choice?

This very short post is inspired by that small band of theists, notably Christian theists, who seem to have great difficulty understanding why most non-theists and atheists are intrinsically just as moral as most theists. Imagine yourself in a small room. You have never heard of any god and you are asked to make a …

But Where’s The Proof?

Four people called Matthew, Mark, Luke & John turn up at a police station claiming some guy called Jesus had been murdered. They were all interviewed in separate rooms. Each was asked if they actually witnessed the murder. Each said “Well no, not exactly. A guy called Paul told me about it, but don’t worry …

Is there any point to debate between theists and atheists?

Another interesting post by JEROME highlighting the frustration we atheists  experience when debating with committed theists. Theists seem impervious to logic and common sense, and they demonstrate time & time again, that John Loftus was right when he said "You can't expect to argue them out of their religion, because they were never argued into …

Why are humanities students more likely to give up faith than science students? | Fatheism

I'm re-blogging this because, as Emily points out, the findings of three separate studies, highlight an interesting side effect that is somewhat counter intuitive, and therefore initially surprising. Why are humanities students more likely to give up faith than science students? Posted on September 24, 2015 by Emily on Fatheism College students who study social sciences …

The Freakishness of Christianity

Very informative article about the current state of Christianity in America and the need for Evangelical Christianity to re-position itself in the 21st century. Russell Moore, head of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, the political nerve center of the Southern Baptist Convention identifies the need for more pragmatism and less hell & damnation if Christianity is …

What every Theist should know about real Atheists

Tom Chivers [http://www.buzzfeed.com/tomchivers] asked 19 atheists how they find meaning in a purposeless universe. He asked them “If there’s no afterlife or reason for the universe, how do you make your life matter? As an atheist, I identify with much of what was said in reply to this question. I also think the various replies …

Are atheists and Christians enemies?

I find intransigence is one of the most frustrating things you encounter, when trying to debate differences in world views. This intransigence applies equally to those with secular views, and to those with religious views. I know I have, on occasions,  "upset" Christians with some of my blog comments. I never do it intentionally,  and …

What is This World Coming To? Exactly What Jesus Said it Would.

Another interesting post, this time taken from CROSSWALK.COM. It illustrates the very warped ideas some Christians have about mankind's intrinsic nature. Personally, I tend to think the vast majority of people are basically good by choice, but I accept that there will always be exceptions. I've never needed a God breathing down my neck, and …
