Atheist Ethics and Abortion

Some atheists seem to have strongly held beliefs about a whole host of things that have nothing to do with the existence or non-existence any deity/god/supreme being. And they are not always as clear about the evidence behind  those beliefs as they could be.  For example, there is the ‘supernatural’. Most atheists do not believe in any form … Continue reading »

This is worth watching. Both Ricky and his commenter make great points. You just can’t argue with them.

There is nothing wrong with religion…

There is nothing wrong with religion… Except their belief systems, their perpetuation by pedophile preachers, their teachings, bigotry, insane prophets, murders, holy books, (and I mean there are a lot of holes in them), lack of critical thinking and logic, tortuous histories, anti-science outlooks, indoctrination of the young, claims to be any kind of guide … Continue reading »

Animal Treatment

One of the major issues that I see as a bad thing about religion – at least within the three main Abrahamic traditions, is the speciesism that is integral to the belief systems. Whilst it is true that there are some ‘laws’ laid down for the treatment and slaughter of animals in these belief systems, … Continue reading »

The Bliss of Ignorance

The Bliss of Ignorance is directly responsible for religious reverie, and that sublime state of infuriating superiority and pity that those of religious bent take towards non-believers. The thinking person can never have such certainty, because we realise how little we know about anything; that much of what we think we know will be revised … Continue reading »

Religion and Humour

Religion puts itself on a pedestal against criticism and against humour, using outdated laws, self-righteous pomposity and occasionally murder, to protect itself. Try to make a film that depicts Jesus as gay and you can still be charged with blasphemy in the UK. Criticise Mohammed in a cartoon and suicide bombers will be quickly trained … Continue reading »

Religion Convinces People to do Bad and Stupid Things in its Name

A few years ago a story hit the newspapers. A ten year old girl from a strict Muslim family lifted her veil to wipe the sweat from her face in the Turkish summer heat, and thus broke Islamic law. Her parents consulted an Imam as to how to punish the girl. He told them that, … Continue reading »

Intelligent Design? I think not…

Creationism/Intelligent Design is an example of a pseudo-scientific way of thinking for people who are unable, because of what they have come to believe is the truth, to accept a different and actually provable truth. It is pseudo-scientific because it pretends to be a scientific theory in competition with Darwinian evolutionary theory, however, unlike Darwin’s … Continue reading »

On Divine Intervention

Millions of scientific experiments are carried out every year, and these experiments can be copied by anyone with the right equipment and knowledge. The results of any experiment carried out under the same conditions should be reproducible, and that is how science operates. We have never found any divine intervention in any experiment, and there … Continue reading »

Death of a Hero

One of the most courageous thinkers and writers of our age, Christopher Hitchens, has passed away at the age of just 62, from cancer. Author of many works, including ‘God is not Great’, Christopher was an outspoken atheist, afraid of no person and of no organisation whether religious or political. Nothing stopped him from speaking … Continue reading »
