    In An Overly Religious World...

    Ever since I cemented my atheistic beliefs in high school, I feel stifled in what often seems like a religion-oriented world. I know that I'm not alone in my beliefs, but it's frustrating to see hardcore religious folks negatively impact the world with their ignorance and...

    Burden Of Proof

    Whenever somebody makes a claim, there is a necessary burden of proof on the claimant, which is to provide a level of evidence that supports their claim. The more extraordinary the claim, the more substantial the burden of proof becomes. For example, if I were to claim that there...

    I was going to write a long-winded rant on how

    Christians claim to be the oppressed minority even when they are in power, but I decided against it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YROimcT_4bk&list=UUravYcv6C0CopL2ukVzhzNw This is worth a watch. It shows how our society can be on both ends of the spectrum.

    Metamorphosis 2 . What mutations could improve

    a larva? Certainly none that destroyed its nerves, muscles, eyes, brain, and most other organs, as occurs within a cocoon. So, even if a larva improved, it later ends up as “mush.” From an evolutionary standpoint, liquefying complex organs is a giant step backwards.  As...

    I am an atheist, and because of that I believe life is precious. Saying life is precious might sound like something a pro-life religious person would say, so allow me to explain my reasoning. I believe that this short life we are blessed with is all that we will ever have...

    Why do Christians lie they have proof of god?

    They quite obviously don't and it's kinda funny watching them try to avoid the topic when I ask for the source of their "evidence" :P I have no problem with their belief but lying to get your point across in a debate is just lame.
