"Lolz. Not rambling at all. I agree, anecdotal evidence is fairly useless. Arguing with someone who believes in an unprovable event is fairly useless. Evidence is what it takes. And open minds should allow for a reasoned position on what they are…"

What ARE the Chances?

What happened to all of the good miracles?I mean, the interesting stuff, coincidentally, all happened long before video cameras - or the internet - were around and ready to at least semi-reliably record and distribute actual information. How annoying.No-one turns water into wine any more (a very handy party trick), and it's been a bloody long time since anyone's had the privilege of a…See More

Putting 'Absolute Truth' into Context

Slavery is wrong. Rape is wrong. Homophobia is wrong... The list goes on - and there aren't too many around in 'enlightened' society who'd disagree, because, generally speaking, people are better than their holy books (and their Gods).This is obviously a very good thing. If it weren't the case, civilisation (if we could call it that) would be an immensely violent, fearful, unjust place. Your daughter gets raped? Marry her to the rapist. Someone steals a loaf of bread to feed their starving…See More

"Keyword: occasionally. In any case, some people's outrage threshold is so low that they'll be triggered into defensive labeling by your mere statement of atheism. So why abstain, if it does YOU good?"

Richard Feynman - My Kind of Scientist

I've been meaning to write a 'love letter' to this man for a while, so here it is.I'll begin with a quote:“I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it is much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong. If we will only allow that, as we progress, we remain unsure, we will leave opportunities for alternatives. We will not become enthusiastic for the fact,…See More

Good Without God?

"I think the idea that it is immoral not to believe in God is perhaps the most insidious one that parents encourage to take root in the minds of young children. It is what makes it so difficult for people to question the existence of God once they have acquired the ability to think and reason for themselves..." - Alom Shaha, The Young Atheist's Handbook.It's a very common theist standpoint, pairing off immorality with godlessness. In most cases, it's probably nothing more than an innocent…See More

The Problem of Children, and Inter-faith Love

"Most religions insist that you do not marry someone of a different faith. This is a good way of ensuring the propagation of the religion, but it is something which must have led to millions of broken hearts throughout history." - Alom Shaha, The Young Atheist's Handbook.It's tragic, really, that what you happen to/choose to believe should dictate who you're allowed to love. From my own godless perspective, I despair that religion should have such an influence on so many aspects of a person's…See More
