Selective Bible Belief

One of the worst parts about discussing theism with theists is the picking and choosing. Any time I point out a scripture that proves their ideas wrong, they argue that its the Old Testament so it doesn’t count, or that it is just a metaphor, and not literal. Here’s my logic. According to the story, …

Noah’s Ark (and the “literal interpretation” of the bible)

Ah, Noah’s Ark. Most people remember this story from childhood. God decided that human kind was so evil, that they needed to be wiped out. He would save Noah and his family, as well as the animals, to repopulate the earth. We all have the mental image of a box shaped ship with giraffe heads …

The Positives of Religion

For the sake of challenging myself, both as a writer and as a complainer, I thought it would be interesting to discuss the positive traits of religion. I’ll try to talk about the good religion has done, instead of ridicule it like I normally do. Now, keep in mind, religion is still asinine, but today, …

The Criminality of Homeschooling

I was the victim of homeschooling from 6th grade on. Which means I just got a taste of what it’s like to have friends and then was ripped away. Some people know this, but I haven’t really gotten into it on this site. I think I made one comment about it being illegal in my Christopia, …

Morality

“Without God, what’s to stop you from killing people?” It’s an interesting concept that almost every theist asks an atheist. The logic is that god gave the Ten Commandments to give us morality. Without that morality, we would have anarchy. Now any rational person knows this is utter nonsense. What happened before the Ten Commandments? …

The Fuck is “Scienceism”?

I have a new complaint. Shocking, I know. Have you noticed how people add “ism” to things they don’t understand? I often see creationists use the not-at-all-made-up words “scienceism” and “evolutionism”. The idea is that they’re trying to bring science and evolution down to their level. Here’s the problem. Just because YOU don’t understand something, …

Free Speech

Free speech is a very tricky thing when you think about it. Like, I can call someone an asshole. But if I call them a rapist, then it’s libel. It’s like if you make it up, it’s fine. If it’s fact, it’s fine. But if there’s the possibility that it’s true without any proof, then …

Religious Duties

Hey religious people: You know how you’re paranoid and worried that people like me are going to come into your homes, take your children and undo your brainwashing by taking them to our science camps, turn your churches into brothels, and forbid you from worshiping your sky faerie? Well if you don’t want that to happen, …

Our Founding Principles

I’m often puzzled by the opinion on the right, that we need to steer our country back to our founding principles. One of my biggest complaints about our country is that it is too similar to the 1780s version of the US. I want change. I want a progressive future. I want the US to be …

Indoctrination vs Free Will

I was recently talking to a friend of mine. She is Christian and wants to raise her children to be Christian also. She sees it as her duty. She is “accountable to god” for her children, as she said. I have a few things to say about this. First, as an atheist, I don’t force …
