For sure God exists but not physically. It exists only in neuro circuits of brains of millons of belivers. Were we hardwired to have a God in our brains? I don't think so. Our brain is hardwired only to survive and produce children and raise them until they can survive on their own.But evolution is a blind process. It produces not only organisims to survive but also some side products like music, art, and ofcourse RELIGION. We don't need any of them to survive. But they happened to exist.…Continue

I do not believe in God. But people ask what proof do you have not to believe it? Wait a munite? Doesn't it sound weird? Which one can be proved? The existance of something or nonexistance of something? If ı say " I have a diamond as big as my refrigerator buried in my garden." Probably you will say " Prove it." Suppose that ı reply " Well ı ca't prove it. But it is not my responsibility to prove it. If you don't believe me prove that there is not such a diamond." Nonsense, isn't it? But…Continue
I don't think that Atheism a spirual journey. To me it is just finding out the truth about nature the laws of nature and the human kind. I wonder where it all comes from. The God The spirutuality and other super natural arguments. Why people create such things? The argument isn't if there is a God or not. For 100% there is no God. Because science has looked into the atoms and found no God and has looked on the massive stars and galaxies and again no sighn of God. But when…Continue
I want to say that ı am a strict Atheist but ı live in an enviroment where everybody believes in a sort of God. People who belive in God are free to exress it. They pray talk about God and do nonsense things in the name of God. But what about me. I have to conceal that I am an Atheist. I have to pretend that I belive it. That makes me frustrated but it is the only way that ı can get along witrh the society that ı live in. Sometimes ı want to scream as; Hey people what…Continue

Why do we not see arguments for antitheism, that is, for people who believe in an omnipotent, omniscient and omnimalevolent being? Is it rational or emotional?
Christopher New offers a reflection. I have highlighted some of his arguments in a post and they are worth looking at.
You must have read the 14th Psalm where the above verse is found.
I have written a post in response to a Catholic who in her writing consider the atheist a fool for not believing fairy tales or for dismissing miracles and prophecy.

I'm reconnecting with members of the Napa Valley Bonsai Club.
I joined the Napa Valley Bonsai Club a few years after it formed then moved away. The club has grown yet still has a lot of the original members. I'm glad to get back in contact with others who know about the ancient botanical art of Bonsai.

When anti-feminists hide behind a mask! Yes, they do!
Anti-feminists always try disguise behind an ideology!
They don’t even believe in that ideology..
They do this because they cannot say that they despise feminism or that they are anti-feminist„ actually no one is gonna listen to them if they say so.
They can use any ideology as a mask!
Feminist just wear normal clothes & never used masks as they always been rational, confident &…Continue
Every so often, one finds a piece on the internet that lumps contemporary atheists in one group called New Atheists. The people who call us such do not tell us any identifying characteristics of these homogeneous group of non believers and often their writing is either a critique of Dawkins, Hitchens and Dennett or other popular atheist writers without offering any valid proof to the god claim.Continue

I spent some time today reading the "Message" as seriously as I could. Going through the nonsense, especially the…Continue

Tonight while eating dinner at about 8 I head a very light knock at the door. I don't have a doorbell and have a knocker with a sign below it saying to use the knocker. Anyway it was a very soft tapping. All my front lights were out and there isn't a street light near my house so the front of my house is very dark. My neighbors don't use front porch lights either. Anyway, I turned on the front porch light and opened the door. A guy there wearing a hardhat with a light on it said his…
So, just to get an idea what do people consider themselves to be. Simply and purely just an Atheist-believing that it's just the earth and them-self? Or are any of you daylight atheists-when your life is going well and whatnot, you think there is no God. And that when things become rather dark, then just--maybe there is a God? I'm just wondering and trying to get a jist of things I suppose around here. For myself at least as of late, I suppose that I am somewhere between believing that…Continue
Gabriel Byrne states the following:
“It was almost a Taliban-esque society,” he said. “That’s how much power they had. Now all the rocks have been lifted and all the maggots have crawled out. The Catholic Church is a tyrannical, evil institution, there’s no doubt about it – anti-woman,…

To answer this question, we would first have to grant that whatever is said about Jesus is true, that is, he was the son of a god, born of a virgin mother, walked among men doing great things for a period of one or three years depending on whose authority you rely on, was arrested, crucified, died and resurrected, you know, the whole schmuck of a story as related by anons in the New Testament.
There are those who tell us, he was a great teacher and that even if it were to be proved he…Continue
The separation of church and state is vital for both sides. It keeps the government from hording in on people's personal faiths, while at the same time, keeping religious extremist from using the government to push their faith (or lack of faith) on everyone. Its a win-win.
But where do we draw the line?
Their are clear violations of church and state and then there are smaller less…Continue
In the U.S. you won't hear much about the Latin Spring. Venezuela, Bolivia, and Ecuador are finally representing the indigenous people. They are nationalizing the natural resources for the benefit of the commons and fending off neo-liberal capitalism.
They are changing their constitutions to provide for clean water and natural resources. These countries are rewriting their constitutions so the natural environment have rights. That will benefit the people of the country and the world…Continue
Imagine a conversation between a skeptic and a Jesus believer happening just a few months or maximum a year after the supposed crucifixion of Jesus. How would it go?
Mangasarian presents a very interesting view of the discussion that would, for the thinking theist, encourage him or her to take a brief and reflect on what she believes.
