Cults and You

I spent most of the weekend reading the very lovely Suzanne Schumacher’s blog about leaving a cult. The cult is quite famous as the Follower’s of Christ. They were involved in a bunch of people refusing medical care for their children and praying instead. I advocate reading Does Air Exist, but urge readers to be respectful. …

Age of Kali: Using Religion as an Excuse

Religion can be used to excuse a lot of things. Religious war, terror, rape and even assault and battery. Indian newspapers range from the delightfully staunch supporters of journalistic integrity to the vaguely sycophantic. Often one has to read between the lines to find out if a person is condemning an action or not. The fact …

Logical Coherrance

Mr. Kohlmayer certainly thinks that our arguments lack logic and coherence while cherry picking a single quote from a skeptical website. The argument we make is based on a simple concept. If god is completely a non-physical entity then how does he interact with the universe? How does he affect believers? How does he implement his …

A Foundation built on lies is no foundation at all

Ah! The simpler life of barn dances, buggy ridesand kalashnikov Erin Friar, thinks that religion makes a strong foundation for children. I believe it makes one of the weakest of foundations, because it is a foundation built on the concept of culturally acceptable superstition. To put it into perspective, I had a couple of americans …

Help! Help! I am being oppressed.

Don’t worry Madam! I am a medical student. Let me call you a Waaahmbulance! Prayer doesn’t belong in schools, it’s exclusive. It treats only a specific brand of Christianity as acceptable (I am pretty sure you would consider the song Jerusalem blasphemy and indeed sedition despite being a Church of England hymn) and worse it hurts any …

Haterade Two – Atheist Boogaloo

It says it all really. To any person of faith (American Christians especially) reading this, remember most of us are exactly the same as Christians, Jews, Hindus, Muslims or any other faith. It’s just that we chose to not believe in an entity we believe is non existent. It doesn’t change who we are, or our morality or anything beyond our …

Happy Birthday

Today is Ajmal Kasab’s birthday, for those who don’t know who he is, he is one of the terrorists of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. He is the lone survivor of that infamous event and is currently in jail for his crimes awaiting the death sentence. I don’t believe in the death sentence, particularly in this …

We are all made of Stars

Gideon’s response from the House of Gideon is up. It’s just bad as a whole. It’s not a difficult argument to counter. “And, throughout the Bible, it says that death is the result of sin. Why would there be a final judgment if everyone were already in Heaven or the pit? There is a hellfire mentioned …

I say! That’s simply not cricket!

Oh my! Well obviously I cannot read this article. It’s behind a pay wall and frankly I get enough insults at my lack of faith without having to pay to read it. But Rabbi Shmuley Boteach obviously doesn’t like us very much. All I can say is that the UK is moving on up in …

Is it the work of a madman or the religious?

Accused murderer uses Old Testament to defend killing a gay man The murderer is probably insane and has a whole bunch of issues. But would he have killed this man if he were not religious?
