Dear Mark Levin, magic won’t balance the budget

Life is hard for a fiscally conservative atheist. There’s no place to go. The word conservative in America today in regards to the economy has a two-pronged meaning. #1 Fiscally conservative #2 Right-wing religious nut Atheists who want to hear economic ideas and solutions on conservative talk radio need to put up with the childish...

James Kirk Wall replies after being called out by Glenn Beck

What is a human right? How is a universal freedom defined? How is it enforced? These questions have been discussed and debated for thousands of years. They are among the most important questions of our existence and the discussions must continue. Even though I strongly disagree with Glenn Beck on the origin of rights, I... Read more »

Dear Glenn Beck, human rights have never come from god

Whenever you hear someone claim that rights come from god, that speaker is a person who (intentionally or unintentionally) wants to take your rights away. That is someone who wants a theocracy. It’s not about using god to claim that you have rights (even though that in itself is absolute nonsense), it’s about others claiming... Read more »

Are all Muslims going to hell? The immoral Atheist bullies say no

I have a deep hope that the Assad regime will fall and peace will come to the Muslims in Syria under secular, honest and competent leadership. Unfortunately based on recent events this won’t happen any time soon if it happens ever. I find the mass murder of people in that country to be horrifying. As... Read more »

Nobody has ever submitted themselves to god

Jesus states that anyone who loves their own family more than him is not worthy of him. The very name Islam means submission to god. But what... Read more »

The male chauvinist god

The Jews, Christians and Muslims all believe in the god that originated in the Old Testament. This god was written to make man in his image. Therefor this particular deity looks like a man. He has two arms, two legs, eyes, nose, a mouth, and what else? Between his legs is a penis. Many religious... Read more »

Faith is not a virtue, but it can be

Having faith that god was with them didn’t make the Nazis virtuous people. The victims and perpetrators of terrorism both have faith. Having faith that they are doing god’s will doesn’t make Islamic suicide bombers virtuous people. The Catholic Church equating faith with morality makes perfect sense from a political and marketing perspective, but it’s... Read more »

There has never been a word of god

In Australia a Muslim man was asked what was more important, Australian Law or Islamic Sharia Law. He answered Sharia Law because it comes from god, but this isn’t true. It comes from a man claiming to speak for god. The distinction is very important and needs to be repeated over and over again. Whenever... Read more »
