God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything is a 2007 book by the author and journalist Christopher Hitchens. Hitchens contends that organised religion is “violent, irrational, intolerant, allied to racism, tribalism, and bigotry, invested in ignorance and hostile to free inquiry, contemptuous of women and coercive toward children” and sectarian, and that accordingly it “ought to have a great deal on its conscience.” Continue reading
We live in a twisted world, where right is wrong and wrong reigns supreme. It is a chilling fact that most of the world’s leaders believe in nonsensical fairytales about the nature of reality. They believe in Gods that do not exist, and religions that could not possibly be true. Continue reading
Religious indoctrination is real. It is a traditionally-based process of all cultures. Its power is such that peoples so affected have a ‘belief’ they have chosen their particular ‘faith’ above the many on offer throughout the planet. Continue reading
Roxana Rodriguez, circled, on the day she joined the order of the Little Disciples of Jesus
I’m sure that you’ve heard the recent news about the Nun from the ‘Little Disciples of Jesus’ convent, near Rieti Italy, who gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. ( I’m glad that her convent wasn’t named ‘Little Disciples of Innocenti’)… now THAT would be embarrassing! Continue reading
Christian, your faith is not really in god and Jesus. Your faith is really in those men who wrote those ancient texts that now comprise the Bible. Continue reading

Jewish humour is the long tradition of humour in Judaism dating back to the Torah and the Midrash from the ancient mid-east, but generally refers to the more recent stream of verbal, self-deprecating, crude, and often anecdotal humour originating in Eastern Europe and which took root in the United States over the last hundred years, Continue reading

Christians are told: don’t use your head if you want to keep your faith. Whatever you do, don’t let these people make you think about it. Continue reading
Many atheists, myself included, have argued with Christians and Creationists so long, that we’ve noticed many of them seem to repeat the exact same statements over and over again, particularly with respect to their dismissals of what we have to say. By “dismissals”, I mean that they usually end their thread of the conversation with a put-down. Continue reading
First on the list is the idea that salvation is unconditional. Grace is freely bestowed on the believer. The believer is not saved by works, or by earning it in any way; it is a gift, offered freely and without cost to the believer. Or so we are led to believe. I contend that this concept does not make sense. Continue reading
I realized that evolution was a fact- that we evolved from very simple organisms that lived 4,000,000,000 years ago. I wondered why a god would use such a long, convoluted process to produce the desired human product, a process that included a 160,000,000 year reign of the dinosaurs and the countless suffering of animals that starved to death or were eaten alive. Continue reading
Sometime in life, if you have believing parents, it begins. “God made you to serve him and to be happy with him in heaven.” You’re expected to accept this as fact, along with the veriﬁable facts you learn, such as how to read, use numbers, and make a sandwich. Continue reading
What the scariest things are in Christianity: this infatuation with biblical prophecy and this notion that Jesus is going to come back as an avenging savior to kill all the bad people. The following are the false Prophecies, Promises in the Bible. Continue reading
Some people falsely believe that it is impossible to prove the unexistence of anything, but they are wrong. It can, for example, be proved that there is no even prime number greater than two. Other people use to say that there is no way to prove if there is a god or not, or even that we cannot get any knowledge of god (agnosticism). Continue reading
I propose that there are 14 (maybe more) basic rationalizations used by Christian apologists to explain away the impossibilities, inconsistencies, violence and conflicting verses of their Holy Bible. These 14 rationalizations (Christians might call them explanations) can be offered any time a Christian apologist is confronted with some aspect of a story in their “good book” that is extraordinary or otherwise difficult to explain. Continue reading
When was the universe created?
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” — Genesis 1:1
Archbishop James Ussher: 22 October 4004 BCE
6000 – 10,000 years ago
“…the Biblical chronology is about a million times shorter than the evolutionary chronology. A million-fold mistake is no small matter, Continue reading
Bible-believing Christians play fast and loose with their sacred text. When it suits their purposes, they treat it like the literally perfect word of God, and, in a peculiar twist of logic, they quote the Bible itself to back up their claim:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16 Continue reading
Ephren Taylor (The con pastor)
Christianity appears to me to be the most absurd imposture of all the religions, and I’m puzzled that so many people can’t see through a religion that encourages irresponsibility and bigotry. These criminal pastors spread fear to people who’re weak and “brain dead” and make money out of them. Continue reading
Plato: For the greater good.
Karl Marx: It was a historical inevitability.
Machiavelli: So that its subjects will view it with admiration,
as a chicken which has the daring and courage to
boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom
among them has the strength to contend with such a
paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the
princely chicken’s dominion maintained. Continue reading
Genesis – God created the heavens and the earth, but there was no one there to witness and record the event, god doesn’t personally write about things he does, remember?? He only inspires to humans what he wants them to write, like dictation, or outsourcing his comments. Continue reading
The following are cartoons of lies of the bible which only the ignorant, the fearful and the paranoid believe in. We began as competiters for food and shelter. The lesson of survival is part of our genes. Our evolution to sensient humans must take the next step – to serve our neighbor for own sake. Continue reading
