Torture during Catholic Inquisition

I have watched only part of one of the videos in the following package. It is too awful. How can anyone human inflict that kind of pain onto another innocent human? It is the most evil thing ever done and it was in the name of religion.

Link of the videos.

The fall of USA - 3

Is it inevitable that USA will fall?

Education is the key to productivity of the future. How teenagers spend their time while at school is indicative of how they perceive and receive education. Out of the 2 million minutes available to teenagers in USA, India and China, how they spend their time?

Here is a documentary on this. 2 Million Minutes

The fall of USA - 2

When the potential political leader of a nation is SO SO delusional, that's a sign of the fall of the nation.

Epic creationist fails of our time #3

What can I say?

The cross was a torture instrument at the barbaric times. The alleged Jesus was not the only one who was condemned to die on this horrible torture instrument. The cross IS a man-made object. Dude!

Open Challenge to All Atheists: Can you Disprove God?

The fallacy of the request is pushing the burden of proof to the unbelievers. I can prove YOUR god's non-existence. Define your god and I shall do the disproving.

At the meanwhile, can you disprove the existence of a china teapot orbiting around the Sun between Mars and Earth?

Here is a good response to the above video.

What Do Atheists Do in Crisis [FOX 8-26-2011]

If prayers were really helpful, believers should not need to prepare. You prepare because you know prayers are not going to work. The lightning rods on top of churches tell us a thing - god cannot protect its own church, science can.

The fall of USA

When 78% of the public believes in a barbaric god, such a society would not be able to advance further - a result of the failed education system to teach their future citizens to think based on evidence.

Faith Healing debunked

Please watch the whole video. This is a scam and should be exposed.

Anti-Gay Teacher Suspended

I totally agree that the school has stepped over the line, any citizen should have the right to free speech. However if and only if the teacher is spreading his private view to his students in school and/or classroom then he should be prosecuted.

Father Bernard Lynch - Secular Europe Campaign

It is good that someone from the Catholic church can stand up and acknowledges the abuse the church has inflicted upon common people. Religion is a form of control. However, I think Lynch failed to acknowledge that the abuses are still on going and his church is still taking every possibility routes to protect the abusers - and that is a shame!

God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales - Penn Jillette

If god (however you perceive him/her/it) told you to kill your child—would you do it?
If your answer is no, in my booklet you’re an atheist. There is doubt in your mind. Love and morality are more important to you than your faith.
If your answer is yes, please reconsider.

Another quote:
One attack I’ve heard theists make against atheists is, “So, you atheists think you know everything? You think you’re smart enough to know everything? You think science can figure out everything? There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt . . .” That quote is from my good friend Mr. Straw Man, but it’s an idea we hear all the time: atheists are arrogant and don’t think they need god, because they’ve got it all figured out. I think people who make that accusation are confusing style with content. I’m a loud, aggressive, strident, outspoken atheist, and I’m an asshole—but what I’m claiming is not in any way arrogant. It couldn’t be more humble. It’s just “I don’t know.”
Where is the humility in being a theist? There is none. What would it mean for me to believe in god? It would mean that I know. Not just that I might happen to know about Kerouac, Thailand, liquid nitrogen, and vector calculus identities, but that I know that there is an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent power in the universe that I can’t prove to you, but that I know because I have faith. I know because I say I know.

Why god cannot protect its own church?

Universal Insignificance

Who is more humble, an atheist who understands how insignificant we are in the Universe or those Christians who think this whole universe was created for human? Do you want a better understanding? Spend 30 minutes and watch this video.

Sexual abuse by people of god, is that news?

From the preface:
It demonstrates without a shadow of doubt that the sexual abuse of minors by priests is not a recent or a local phenomenon. Nor is the current crisis of clergy abuse just another pot-hole along the bumpy road in this history of the Catholic Church.

Insulting religion

Prompted by the video from Pat Condell below, my position on this has always been that respect needs to be earned. Religious has the right to be stupid and willingly enslaved by religion shackles, I have the right to laugh at their irrationality. Every time I see someone on his/her knees, hands in front and head close to ground, I wonder if s/he is allowed to fart given that at such a position the ass is necessarily pointing towards god, or at least most believe god lives in the above. A synchronous farting would be interesting - as long as I am not close by.
