Firstly, I better come right out there and tell you, I never celebrate New Year’s Eve, I am usually somewhat of a pessimist and you can all stop frowning right now . You see I always worry that the next year might be worse than the last, not a problem on that score this year! I have had one of the most amazing, scary, sad and wonderful years of my life. From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. From helping to highlight a friends need to escape from a mental ward for simply being an atheist, to the death of friends and relatives. Believe me atheists are human too and we feel it just as keenly. So this year I am running towards 2015, I am going to have a wonderful year. It may be challenging but I am going to make sure it goes with a bang! Continue reading
I seem to start most of my posts lately with a ‘well what a week’. But, WELL WHAT A FUCKING WEEK! So much craziness in the news and as usual seems to revolve around Islam. We had The Sydney Siege and the Peshawar Attack.
I seem to have had #myownattack this week! Continue reading
Islam built itself based on belief and faith, obedience without question, submission without resistance (the real meaning of the Arabic word Islam is not from Salam, peace, as widely believed), Islam means submission, total submission to the will of Allah, in essence, the will of Muhammad, since no one ever saw Allah (it is a noun), And you have to believe in Ghayb, that’s the unseen (genie, gods, angels, resurrection, heaven, hell, virgins-houri etc), as criteria.
These recent attacks prompted me to write, out of anger for the bloodshed and the pointless defence of the religion of peace by ‘bad’ Muslims; rejoice to this fact,normal Muslims are bad Muslims, the good Muslims are truly the fanatics, they are the real Muslims, they follow the book in totality, which boasts that it is uneditable, incorruptible for a thousand years (meaning Muslims are expected to never learn anything new, but through that book and stick to it).

You know what I love about science? That despite religions disdain for us and their dismissal of evidence, science always gives religion the benefit of the doubt, and no matter what we think of their biblical stories – we still give it serious consideration and look for scientific proof of their mythologies. Continue reading
So, do you want to know what’s pissed me off this week?….
No?. Well tough, because you know I’m going to tell you anyway. Two things :-
- Creation Science
- Flood Geology
In other words a theist’s take on evidence and how it fits in with their fairy stories. I know! Grown adults – some people never grow up do they? hahhaha Continue reading
In a recent discussion I was asked ‘When did you become an Atheist?’ Ignoring the inaccuracy of the question (as we are all aware, we are all born with no belief structure, our parents tend to impose that upon us) I answered very specifically “Eight years old” I said. At this point I was asked how I knew and after being asked to provide an article for this site by SS I thought this may make a good topic. Continue reading
