Avoiding Religious Reality

I’m tired of trying to debate people on religious subjects who can’t see outside of their own religious echo chamber.  This came up several times recently when, in discussions about various religious subjects, my opponent simply declared that because they didn’t think that way, that nobody could possibly think that way and therefore, they just […]






The Problem With Skepticism

Allow me to wax philosophical for a moment.  I just had a discussion with someone who subscribes to some very general solipsist beliefs, that we don’t really exist and reality is an illusion.  This is something I refer to as skepticism on overdrive, where they are so completely and totally skeptical of absolutely everything, to […]






The Untruth Behind Privilege

So I usually try to give a little benefit of the doubt to young people who post stupid things on the Internet, at least if I see them trying to make some sense and apply some logic to their writing.  After all, they just don’t know any better and how are they supposed to learn […]






Freddy Gray Got What He Deserved

The verdict has come back regarding the driver of the van that Freddy Gray died in the back of, clearing him of all charges, and as should have been expected, the liberal shitbags are up in arms because… reasons.  It has to be the fault of the cops that Freddy Gray died.  It just has […]






A Libertarian is Finally Honest!

I know I talk about natural rights a lot and the complete and utter failure of libertarians to actually back them up, even though they insist, without a shred of evidence, that they’re actually real.  I point out this failure every single time I find it and most of the time, libertarians still pretend that […]






Losing Their Religion

Is the GOP losing their religion?  That’s a question posed by a recent Washington Post opinion article that I think brings up some good, if incomplete, points. One thing that is very clear about this year’s Presidential primary race is that religion hasn’t been the glue that holds the Republican Party together as it has […]






Why Can’t Liberals Face Reality?

I can’t tell you how many discussions I have with liberals where they simply are unable to deal with reality, they have to create strawmen and shift the goalposts because they fundamentally can’t handle what’s actually out there.  Take a recent example, I was debating someone on welfare, specifically welfare in the inner cities.  I […]






Lack of Patriotism

A couple of days ago, I was in the local K-Mart, which is closest big box retailer to my new house and happens to be next door to the grocery store.  Way in the back, they had a bunch of displays for patriotic t-shirts that they were clearly trying to sell off for the 4th […]






Horror Show Sunday: God to Blame

Crazies come out of the woodwork all over, including, in this case, the Netherlands, where Bart van U (also referred to as Bart van Urk), murdered former health minister Els Borst by stabbing her 41 times in the face and hands.  Why?  Because he was upset that Borst had introduced legislation that would legalize euthanasia.  […]






Sympathetic Muslims

Please let me know if you’ve come across this but this is a new one on me.  On a religious forum, I came across a couple of people who changed their religious lean to “Muslim”.  These are not people who were previously religious, in fact, several of them were open atheists, but all of a […]






Google+ Apologetics Part 2

To be honest, I often find Google+ to be a waste of time because there aren’t very many good discussions. Occasionally though, something worthwhile pops up and I have to respond, but as I’ve said before, it isn’t easy to get into much depth and detail because of the format.  Often, when that happens, I […]






Google+ Apologetics Part 1

Every now and then, someone posts a long screed on one of the Google+ Atheism Communities I’m a member of.  Usually, they’re nothing worth paying attention to but this time, I think this list of ten complaints about religious/irreligious debate is something I’d like to respond to.  It was written by someone named Johnathan Peter […]
