The New Creationism?

The New Creationism?

Many of us fought against Intelligent Design in the early 2000s, and for evolution to be taught in our nation’s science classes without mystical inclusions, fake “controversies” or impeaching strawmen.

Atheists Should Have No Secular Heaven

In the mid-2000s the Intelligent Design, “Climate Skepticism,” and the Left Behind movements unified atheists to fight for sound science in our nation’s classrooms and a popular refutation of the negative, apocalyptic claims of the End Times and the Rapture.

Loosening My Bible Belt

Who do you believe is crazier? The pastors who handle venomous snakes in church houses, or the guy they get to catch those snakes in the woods? Imagine if you will, being five years old, holding the lid open to the cooler your dad puts those snakes in, and he is depending on you to […]

Atheists Should Have No Secular Devil

There’s a saying: “Don’t think of a pink elephant.” In other words, what one resists can dominate and even control one’s mind, making the action a person wishes not to do the action that person ultimately does.

The Lie of Equality

The Lie of Equality

A false conclusion which seems to have become the mainstream opinion nowadays is that everyone is equal. It is perhaps derived from the belief that all people should be equal before the law and have the same rights and same vote.
