    What Does This Mean?

    It's basically atheism+. For those who don't quite get it, let me explain a little further. Atheism is the lack of belief in any god(s), usually the gods of the Abrahamic religions in particular. Atheism entails not believing in the supernatural to explain the natural...

    Yeah - But Why Don't We All Just Say We Are Realists

    That would suit much better. The word anti-whatever already somehow impacts on that thing ;-). So I am not an antitheist, I am a huge realist. All religions can be fun for entertainment if they didn't do any harm - BUT THE TRUTH IS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE in fact - they all...

    This Approach Is Too Narrow To Be Practical

    What good does it do to focus so exclusively on theism if we understand that challenging otherwise unquestionable beliefs is important across the board? Let us not forget the following preconceptions, which have no reason to be espoused or obeyed: 1. Monogamy 2. Ownership 3...

    Religion Offends Me.

    Most religions and even "spiritual beliefs" are so unreasonable I am offended by their sheer stupidity.  I understand the human need to believe in something greater but I think it's a cop out.  I wish people could just accept that there are things they'll never understand...

    Religion Really Is A Bastard.

    Okay. I already disliked religion intensely. I knew of faith schools in Britain. I knew of creationist nutjobs in America. I knew of Muslim suicide bombers, of Christian indoctrinators and Jewish genital mutilators (there's a trio of groups that would make an entertaining book...

    Religion births discrimination

    and discrimination births extremism. Are not Organized Religions just another form of brainwashing wrapped up in a tidy package for those deluded and foolish enough to believe? So many, dare I say, most, large conflicts and wars and acts of terror are fuelled by religious...

    Threat to People, Society, and Good Taste

    Yup, I believe that belief in gods and goddesses is harmful.  In today's world, we need less fantasy and more reality.  The real world won't be saved by living in the fantasy world.   "I've read the books. God is not a moderate. There's no place in the...

    It's Idiotic

    All religion has ever done for the world is brainwash weak people and kill the rest...and yet we still have to deal with it. Religion was created by early, uninformed people to explain the reasons behind the seemingly random events that occur throughout the world, and that was...

    Many Questions To Be Answered....

    I read that it would have to rain a foot every single minute of every single day for the entire 40 days and nights of Noah's flood. Now a boat the size of the one needed to carry 2 of every species on earth, plus food for that period of time for those animals, would sink within...

    I wanted to highlight this statement: All

    religion must be removed from the public square. If you need to believe in mythological stories, it is best to keep it to yourself. If you want people to stop thinking it is a disease, then it is best to stop spreading it. That goes for all religion. Because it is a disease.
