Welcome to MySpace, as long as you believe


I am not one to talk about my atheism and anti-religious view. But apparently it is OK to 'force' the Bible on young children but not letting them watch an 'atheist' movie?

Atheism hasn’t hurt Fremont Rep. Stark

From San Francisco Chronicle:

"It's not courageous to make a simple statement about personal
beliefs,'' he told about 70 people at the San Leandro City Hall. "What is
courageous is to stand up in Congress and say, 'Let's tax the rich and give
the money to poor kids.' Now that's courageous.''

And more importantly:

Thomas was even happier to see that most of the people at the town
hall meetings weren't interested in talking about Stark's position on God.
Instead, Iraq, health care, global warming, immigration and other national
issues that drove the hour-long sessions.

Are Americans Ignorant About Religion?

From The Gospel of Prothero on MSNBC:

In Prothero's utopian world, Americans would have enough religious

Atheist Professor vs. Religious Students

If you want to see how an atheist rationally (and I may say, restrained at times) responds to an organised attempts by religious students to hi-jack the Q&A session, read this post and watch part 2 of the video. It is rather long, 69 minutes, but it is well worth your time I promise!

(For some reason, Vox's YouTube search does not find the video even though I can find it easily on YouTube site. Here is a short clip below.)

Do We Really Need Bad Reasons To Be Good?

From RichardDawkins.net:

Most Americans appear to believe that without faith in God, we would
have no durable reasons to treat one another well. The political
version of this morality claim is that our country was founded on
