    Richard Dawkins Gave Me The Guts To Come Out Of The

    I was raised going to church. I went up the aisle when I was 5 in the Baptist church because my mother was pushing me. She wanted me "saved" before I knew any better, because ONE SECOND after you know you should ask Jesus to forgive all your sins and come into your heart, but you...

    Existence

    While I find philosophy, and even religions, interesting every now and again, science will always be my first love. That, and I know Richard Dawkins actually exists. Or at least exists as much as I exist. - K

    ....not! Oh Dear

    Fundementalism sucks...in any form. Mr Dawkins is hateful....really he is. He is a fundementalist and much of the contempt and abusive behaviour levelled against beleivers he and other athiests do is as well. If its wrong then its wrong. We are idiots or not as clever for not...

    The God Delusion Vs the Bible

    The God Delusion makes insightful and meaningful points centered around scientific fact and theory. The Bible spews hate towards many groups (homosexuals, nonbelievers, etc) while using fear tactics to keep followers in line. This book is based on ridiculous fables, none of...

    He's Definately Got a Few Things Over Jesus

    It Makes A Lot More Sense

    I'm sure, when Jesus was around, some people found him pretty cool. I mean, his reputation survives him. But I think I would have been deeply disturbed, had I known him, when he started to say "God is my father." That is creepy. "My mother is a virgin." would have had me...
