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…

Homophobia on the rise in Africa

Whereas the rest of the world is working towards equal treatment for everyone, we in Africa, seem to be rewinding the clock with the help of the religious and not so intelligent legislators so that most people have bought into the line that homosexuality is a sin or a disease or a combination of both. 

What doesn't surprise me is that the majority of people who stand in opposition to LGBTIs are the religious, and claim their holy books prohibit homosexuality and tell us further that…

"I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made." -Yahweh(?)/Moses(?)

I don't know about you, but that sure sounds like a guy I'd want to worship!

/sarcasm

No. My thoughts are more similar to this point of view:

noah

Really, it's more like a dad who drowned all of his children except for one kid and was like, "Don't worry. I won't murder you or any of the kids I have from here on out! Well, at least not by drowning all of them in a massive flood... You know I mean it too because I made you a pretty painting."

On the question of NSA surveillance and privacy

There is a story of a young man who has decided to follow the footsteps of Bradley Manning and leak documents related to the US of A surveillance of its citizens and others around the globe that he felt goes beyond the requirements of policing.

He says, and I agree with him, that "I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions," but "I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I…

Atheism is Not a Philosophy

humanist

There is a lot that I don't agree with Sam Harris on. I have always loved his 'atheism is not a philosophy' quote though. He wrote it in Letter to a Christian Nation. I have met quite a few atheists and I certainly don't agree with them on everything. Hell, Irish and I don't even share the same exact…

The death of god: A personal refelection

In gay science, Nietzsche writes about a madman in the market place who goes asking about the whereabouts of god and is met with blank stares from the godless. He writes[in part]

Have you not heard of that madman who lit a lantern in the bright morning hours, ran to the market place, and cried incessantly: “I seek God! I seek God!”—As many of those who did not believe in God were standing around just then, he provoked much laughter. Has he got lost? asked one. Did he…
