Imagine No Religion

Yes, of course we will always find something to fight about. We are animals, it's in our nature. But I'd rather fight about something that exists, than kill each other over something that cannot be proven. Religion is forever tainted, and drives people to think they are exempt from the law and free of judgement, and that is its ultimate flaw. It adds in an invisible and currently unprovable variable. A variable that attempts to make itself guilt free, question free, and perfect. I know it's hard to be free of religion, it's a wonderful crutch. I would love to know my purpose in this world, in this universe, etc, but I don't know, and I can accept that. It takes confidence, and the ability to let go of our utmost selfishness, to realize that our part in this unexplainable universe is inconsequential. What we do with our time is our choice, and we can have a good or bad impact on our small little planet. The problem with "religion" is it doesn't allow change, because it claims itself to be 'perfect', therefore holding itself exempt from any progressive change, and condemning itself to a certain and final end.

Hitchens

We Atheists lost a great role model today. It will be hard to find someone to match his intelligence, wit, and honesty. I'm not a fan of the "rest in peace" phrase since it is far over-used. What I do hope is that the world can take a moment to reflect on man who went to his death without having an organized panic about it, which is what religion really is (according to Dylan Moran anywho).

And to the 'fundies' who are gleefully rejoicing in his supposed placement in the mythological 'hell', I give you this.

What could be worse than Hell?  A Heaven filled with Christians...

Mermaid Bus

Saw this on the Shaytards vlog the other day, when Shay and Katilette were pulling into LAX for their flight to FL for the CTFxC royal YouTube wedding of the year (congrats Alli and Charles!)

But seriously though, can I have this bus?

How to (hopefully) delete your facebook!

One of the Atheists I follow posted this on their blog the other day, thankfully it is EXACTLY what I had been searching for! So as we all know, facebook doesn't let you delete your account, you can only deactivate it. But thanks to this helpful link, you might actually be able to delete it. I don't know if this is just another scam by Zuckerberg, but if it is real, I am one happy girl. Go ahead and give it a try!

Many MANY thanks to The Ex-Christadelphian for this link!
Check out his blog, it's great :)
