Horror Show Monday: Easter Bombing

Hey, what’s the religion of peace been up to lately?  Oh yeah, murdering lots of people!  This time out, the Taliban launched a deadly attack on Easter Sunday near Islamabad, Pakistan when a suicide bomber, intentionally targeting Christians, erupted, killing 69 people and injuring more than 340 others. But yeah, Islam doesn’t hurt anyone. Pakistani […]






Picking on ChristianMingle?

In a recent court case, a judge ordered the owners of ChristianMingle, a “Christian” dating service, to allow same-sex couples to use the service, even though homosexuality is a sin according to a lot of Christians.  Of course, this immediately caused Christian whiners to come out of the woodwork, screaming that this is blatant discrimination […]






Let’s Answer Theist Questions!

I had a subscriber over on my YouTube channel send me links for a bunch of theist questions.  One list I did for YouTube but this one I’m going to cover here.  It’s actually split up into multiple sections and I’ll look at the ones addressed to atheists and agnostics.  As I’m not a Muslim […]






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 […]






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 […]






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 […]
