The World's Largest Coalition of Nontheists and Nontheist Communities!
I remember the moment of my epiphany, the moment I became an atheist. I was 20 years old. I had read the oscillating universe by George Gamow & the origin of species by Charles Darwin.
Then, suddenly, I realized we homo-sapiens are just a kind of animal like other animals on this spinning rock we call Earth. Whatever purpose we feel we have is one we devise for ourselves; it’s not handed to us from on high. We are on our own; there is no deity holding a net under our feet as…

Do I matter??
No! I don’t matter! The point isn’t to depress you or me. I am not that important.? The central issue is, I don’t matter. It is a delusion to think that I matter, that I am powerful or weak. Denial holds me in delusions.
What does matter? The planet, soils, water, air, & life matters.
I will vanish, unremembered, like the…Continue
Some time back, I was watching a conference on YouTube, featuring some notable high-end audio equipment designers. What does that have to do with atheism, you might well ask. Well, one of the designers present, in talking about design theory and best practices, made mention of being “skeptical” of these standards, and then he dropped the following bombshell:
In a battle between theory and the real world, the real world always wins.

My God - The majority of religions talk in terms of My God. My God is ownership of God. My God invariably becomes a collective Our God, truth, and dogma. Our God dogma makes us right and you wrong. Or, us being saved and you being damned. Harris proposed, "the central tenant of every religious tradition is that all others are mere repositories of error or, at least, dangerously incomplete. Intolerance is thus intrinsic to every creed." (2004) Dogma makes our religion having an exclusive…Continue
PROBABLY THE MOST COMMON PURPOSE OF PRAYER IS:?
-- to ask God to do things – fulfill requests, grant favours, and generally use his supernatural powers to act on behalf of the petitioner. Internet prayer request pages overflow with theists asking others to pray for them so that they may be healed of sickness and injuries or delivered from financial troubles
However, as an application of simple logic shows, any prayer that asks God for anything is pointless. Is…Continue
What do you think of the Doctrine of Infallibility? For me, this doctrine correlates with inerrancy. For religions, infallibility includes saying my/our religion can't err because I/we have the Truth. Infallibility is about being right absolutely and without exception. Infallibility proclaims the inerrancy of the Bible. In 1870, the Roman Catholic Church formally announced the doctrine of papal infallibility on matters of faith and doctrine. However, all religions have some doctrinal forms…Continue

My copy of FFRF’s Freethought Today recently went upside my head with a statement quoted on Page 3 of their November 2018 issue:
The bottom line is that while church and state are formally separated, religious legislators are still driven by their religious beliefs when voting in the Senate on all issue areas. This mechanism circumvents the formal separation of church and state and brings religion into politics through the back door.
-- Daniel Arnon, Emory…
What do you think of the concept of Fideism? For me, fideists are those religious addicts who have beliefs not based on reason or logic. For me, fideism puts reasoning to sleep. It really amounts to an abdication of the working brain’s critical thinking skills of analysis and synthesis. Fideism is concrete reactive thinking and a mechanical interaction with life. Schopenhauer said, “faith and knowledge are related as the scales of a balance; when one goes up, the other goes down.” (19th…Continue
Here are some views on dogma. What do you think??Dogma?is a major factor that leads to a theology of separation. We all have access to a Natural Moral Code predating any man-made religious beliefs. However, we interpret universal moral codes the way we experience life. Universal moral codes are interpreted by a human nature that includes solipsism. Religions are man-made interpretation of nature-made universal moral codes based on their experience of Nature and human…Continue
? So I feel a feel a bit akward now. I first came to this site as a scared just out of the closet atheist. I grew up here and have now come out in the open with my actual name and even now show my face(beware.)
?This site has been everthing to me. I would not be doing what I am if it was not for you good folks. That is no crap. Now I have a Youtube channel that i would no have if it was not for you. I do not make any money on it at all. It is simply a different way to reach people,…Continue
It's been a long time since I've visited this site.? Many things have changed.? Life has been a bit of a whirlwind in recent years, so I haven't had as much time to sit down and ponder the universe.

Some time ago I saw this quote:
"It’s a strange myth that atheists have nothing to live for. It’s the opposite. We have nothing to die for. We have everything to live for" --- Ricky Gervais
This galvanized the dormant muse in me & inspired me to type out the following free verse:

I first learned this idea from Neil Gaiman's books of which I am a fan. According to his books (see American Gods) , once a god loses his flock of believers, he (or she) loses his powers and then he vanishes. Following this logic, any deity is interested in growing its number of believers. This would explain the missionary activities of various religions.
? There might be an additional grim aspect of the gods created by men:
? ?The believers who die in their name also increase…Continue

In the Prologue of my book, I wrote in my mid-twenties there ignited in me an intense battle centered around a childhood supernatural worldview, and building a definitional worldview that I could live by. This dualistic battle amounted to my gethsemane, or my own noche oscura del alma ---> “dark night of the soul.” My dualistic battle became a daunting task to repeal-and-replace an obsolete worldview. My dualistic battlefield became a fierce insistent, persistent, consistent internal…Continue
