I don’t object to the concept of a deity but I’m baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

Atheist Group Connects With LGBT Community In a Creative, Beautiful Way

An Atheist group has found a novel way to connect with the LGBT community as a way to promote humanism.

The Louisville Atheists and Freethinkers asked attendees at this week’s Kentuckiana Pride festival one simple question: what makes you proud? Participants were asked to write their answers on small post-it notes, which were then hung as a colourful mobile display for all to enjoy… Read more.

if you need a reward/punishment system to tell you right from wrong, kiss your dog, because you are no better than him

Every dog owner will tell you that even dogs know right from wrong.

Benedict Too Pooped To Pope.

No matter your opinion of organized religion, you must give  credit for putting his church ahead of himself.

My opinion of the church, and by default the Pope, has not always been a good one. At times, their rhetoric seems to be at odds with the teachings of Christ. But I need to put my personal opinions aside, and give Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI praise for recognizing his own very human limitations; something rare in the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church.

Farewell sir.

I Am Agnostic

I am Agnostic because it would be presumptive and arrogant for a mere mortal to claim to know what lies beyond our reality.

What secular means.

This is the PERFECT opportunity to point out the warped logic of some…
1) If you’re Christian, you can’t believe in the Big Bang. Hmm, So, um, if you believe that God created heaven and Earth, you don’t think it’s possible that God created a Big Bang?? That’s awfully narrow minded of you.
2) Evolution is inconsistent with Christianity because the Bible says God created the world in seven days. - Hm, um, the Bible was written by man thousands of years ago, from spoken stories passed down from person to person through generations, and translated hundreds of times along the way.  - Now, I know the stories that my parents told me about their childhood don’t match up with the stories about my parents that my grandparents told me. I’m sure my parents and grandparents aren’t the first people on Earth to get their stories mixed up. That’s just human nature. *Again, You believe God created heaven and Earth, but you don’t think it’s possible that God created evolution? That’s awfully narrow minded of you.
3) God created Adam and Eve. Eve gave birth to Cain and Abel. According to the Bible, Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel were the ONLY four people on Earth. Yet, when Cain killed Abel, he was sent to the land of Nod to find himself a wife. Wait, what?
I know the above argument may seem as if I’m criticizing Christians, but I’m not. I grew up in a Roman Catholic household. I learned great values from the church. The most important being the Golden Rule. Treat Others the way You, Yourself wish to be treated.
I support a secular government because NOT Everyone has the same beliefs. I don’t want to insist my beliefs upon others, just as I don’t want others to insist their beliefs on me.
It’s one of the reasons the United States is such a wonderful place. :)
