Why I am an atheist – Lyn M.

There are quite a few reasons as to why I am an atheist. My father decided he was, after being raised in a fundamentalist household. My grandfather was a believer. To me it seemed my father was reacting to his upbringing and taking a lot of pleasure from aggravating my grandfather. Even so, atheism made …

Minnesota’s own Professor Hollywood

There goes Jim Kakalios, the University of Minnesota’s official consultant to big Hollywood movies. He got recruited to add math to the new Spiderman movie. This is good news! Less of that silly CGI web-swinging, and more chalkboards full of equations…that’s a good movie!

I endorse this rant

It’s truly lovely. How can anyone support the Republican Party after reading the Texas platform? It’s a national embarrassment.

The Texas Republican Party platform for 2012

I heard about the Texas Republican Party platform on the Atheist Experience last night, and today Zinnia Jones has a post about it. Have you seen this thing? The Texas Freedom Network has a breakdown of its contents. Declares separation of church and state is a “myth” and calls for Congress to withdraw federal court …

Why I am an atheist – John Hamill

I think that my journey away from religion has been a reasonably uncommon one, since I had to guard against confirmation bias for atheistic arguments, rather than those for the Roman Catholic faith in which I was raised. That is to say, when I first had doubts about the Christian story, I already earnestly hoped …
