Flat Earth Theorists

The Meme of the Flat Earth The ‘current flat earth’ craze scarcely deserves a mention on Ethical Atheism, because the arguments in favour of a flat earth are so ridiculous that anybody with the least amount of common-sense can counter them easily. People of any kind of wisdom and maturity don’t need me to point … Continue reading »

What is Ethical Atheism?

Although the words ‘ethical atheism’ seem self-explanatory, they are for some people a contradiction in terms. Many people of religion believe that there can be no such thing as ethical atheism because being an atheist makes a person evil. Without God, what can give us morals, rules to live by, incentive towards being good rather … Continue reading »

Mormonism – The Sect.

I’m going to write more on religious sects, but today I want to focus on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormonism). Before I start, I would like to point out that everything below is supported by and documented in official Mormon Documentation, which Mormons hold sacred, namely, The BOOK OF MORMON, … 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 »

Humankind

Looking at the world as it currently is, it would be easy to despair of humankind. Rarely a day goes by without some atrocity committed in the name of a god or prophet or group of believers, usually from the Judeo/Christian/Islamic tradition. Sometimes the atrocity is committed because of land boundaries, but often it is … Continue reading »

On Dogma

Throughout religious history, especially in the monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, in all their many manifestations and break-off sects, there has been a set of dogma that believers adhered to, often blindly believing that their holy books gave them direct instructions from their versions of God, through revelations of one or another prophet, … 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 »

Heaven – a fatally flawed place

Ignoring the pre-pagan roots of the whole idea of a ‘Heaven’, there are some things in common with most believers’ concepts of what it is, and what’s going to happen there. Invariably: Heaven is a place where the faithful go after they die. It always considered a good place to go. You only go there … Continue reading »

The Confusion between Belief and Truth

Religion provides a set of pre-formed beliefs that are not to be questioned, but if anything is clear about our world and our universe it is that  we can be certain of nothing. Whilst that allows for the possibility that the faithful of some particular religion are exactly correct in what they think, progress has … Continue reading »

The Self-Delusion of Religious Belief

We are often wrong about those things of which we are most certain. To say that something is ‘real for me’ may just be another way of saying, ‘I like my delusion, so let me keep it’. Some people are convinced they have been kidnapped by aliens from space. At any one time, up and … Continue reading »
