Militant Atheism: Why The Gloves Came Off

It is sad that it has come to this.  My friends ask me why I bother with being an Atheist Activist and run such sites as The United Atheist Front on Facebook. They say I should live and let live because most religious people are nice folks who don’t shove their religion down your throat.  …

Sweet Home Alabama? No, Not Really…

Alabama already has enough of a reputation for being a seedbed of ignorance and the butt of almost every redneck joke you can think of.  While there are many fine people that live here, there are amongst us some of the worst that I have seen and they are not helping the rest of us…

Games Fundamental Christians Play

Over the years, a man I know named J. Richards has compiled a master list that fundamental religionists use to counter the logic and reason of unbelievers.  The project started out with only a handful of these, but has grown to the point that it required categorizing, to which Mr. Richards has done a remarkable…

The Incompatibility of Christianity and Science

The universe is a funny thing.  Really. With all that we have come to understand about the cosmos, there is much we do not know.  Richard Feynman, one of the greatest minds in the field of quantum mechanics said, “If you think you understand quantum mechanics, then you don’t understand quantum mechanics”.  Our universe operates…

Sex: The Missionary Position

It is no secret that Christian fundamentalists live in a world obsessed with sexuality.  In the United States, every censorship effort and attempt at sexual repression comes from religion. Opposition to contraception, abortion, sex education, co-education, prostitution and the censorship of our entertainment and media outlets all point back to the hostility that religious fundamentalists…

The Shroud of Turin and the Myth of Jesus Christ

In spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many Christians still believe The shroud of Turin to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.  In fact, as it went on display last weekend, it was expected that approximately two million people, including the Pope, were expected to view it  hanging in the Turin Cathedral over…

Christian Mysogyny: Alive And Well In America

It is a fact that if you tell someone for a long enough period of time that they are inferior, then they will come to believe it of themselves.  In modern psychology, treatment is available for people with an inferiority complex. Through therapy, the patient can regain their sense of self-worth and equality and re-emerge…

Fox’s Fight For Faux Freedom

In November, elections for 36 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate are going to be held and the Republicans are trying every trick in the book to get as many seats as possible, which is expected.  However, the right wing nut jobs are really piling it on.  Chicken Little has been promoted…

Against Abortion? Then Don’t Have One…

Before my inbox gets filled with reminders that I said I would not write about this ever again, it should be known that I am writing about it again because my inbox was filled by people asking me to.  Abortion is a subject that I rarely touch upon because, as I have stated, I do…

Resurrection: The Oldest Urban Legend

Today is Easter Sunday. It is the Christian high holy day that has been set aside to celebrate the resurrection of their god-born savior, a tenet which is central to their faith. If there were no resurrection, the human sacrifice known as the crucifixion would be the end of a failed mission. The cycle of…
