    More Religious(atheist) Bigotry

    After the election, I saw some extremely bigoted

    and racist things said against Tim Scott and Mia Love after they won their elections. Only reason people can't stand them is because they're both black.

    Gay Marriage

    I have yet to see a person against gay marriage who didn't base their arguments on prejudice.  It bothers me that religion can still be cited in our government as reasons for denying a basic civil right.  I have hope that the nation will soon realize the unconstitutionality of...

    Claiming anything without any evidence to back it up is to do so in ignorance.  Claiming something in ignorance is prejudice.

    Feminist Bigotry

    What's Wrong With Feminism? Posted in contraeverything's blog 2008-12-14 A very foolish attorney recently remarked to me, "Feminism died in the 80's." If only.... In fact, feminism is very much alive today. So alive that it is pervasive. So pervasive that we do not even...

    Fundamentalism

    Fundamentalists have a different point of reference rather than always disagree with anything they don't understand. So - to a christian fundamentalist, if it disagrees with their understanding of the bible, it must be false. To a muslim fundamentalist, if it disagrees with...

    Response To Fundamentalism

    I agree. Fundamentalism is at the very least intellectually dishonest, no matter where it comes from.  Fundamentalism used to make negative opinions would be prejudiced.This is why I'm an Agnostic.

    You Don't Know The Truth And Other Limitations Of Our Species

    Lets shed a little Zen and address some statements which I base my opinion on and claims on ! Claim One: "The Bible is evidence of what is in the Christian doctrine. The Bible, however, is based on faith. Faith is not based in evidence." This isn't all that true is it...

    Ignorance
