Of Placebo and Near Death – Anne Jones

I was already halfway through writing a response Hello, I’m a Christian ID and Creationism advocate, and I’d like to take issue with the scientific method and the derision of Christian beliefs and creationism/ID as established fact. * Christian …

A Special Thanks

Comments Policy

So writing about the shooting of a teenager and farmers in Palestine lead me to my first slightly out of control comment barrage… So… I need some advice on a comments policy. I had this in mind.

The priests of the UK have written a letter in opposition of Gay Marriage, So far it has 1000 signatures and says that allowing gays to get married will lead to persecution against Catholics. Repeat after me. No one is going to force priests to get married to each other. No one is going to …

Atheism and Bereavement

So what do you say in the aftermath of a tragedy? What do you do? What can you say? People say that you, as an atheist, are incapable of knowing what to say to someone who is grieving or who has suffered a major tragedy. It is the kind of issue we see after pretty …

Omnipotent, Omnipresent yet requires Bodyguards

I never really understood why any god would require a bodyguard from mere humans. But apparently Allah does. Asif Mohiuddin was operated on for more than 3 hours and is still in a critical condition after he was set upon by three of Allah’s bodyguards. The reason? He was one of those “militant atheists” we …
