Our Father??

Imagine a single parent. A father with a couple of kids. These kids are young, around 5-6 years old, let’s say. They are completely dependent on their parent. But the father mistreats them. He makes them follow his own arbitrary set of rules, some of which he keeps changing at his whim. The kids are … Continue reading


Gaping holes……

Read a blog by a pastor today. he talked about a “naturalism of the gaps”, trying to turn the ‘god of the gaps” theory around. He claims that atheists start with the supposition that there is no god, and theorize how existence came into being without him. I could not understand his logic here. Maybe … Continue reading

I’d want to believe……

I have been an atheist for some years now. It was a sudden but not a major shift. Not having grown up in a religious home, it wasn’t very difficult for me to give up the idea of an all-powerful entity controlling the world. I was always at the edge, but it never occurred to … Continue reading

In god’s defence, my personal rebuttals… part 1

I often wonder at theists. Perhaps it is the first flush of atheism, like a man with a new pair of eyes, I run around looking at people incredulous at their inability to see the vividness of the world around them. Believers would say it’s more like a drug induced hallucination. But just look at … Continue reading

Could any human being ever support human slavery in this day and age? How could it ever be called defensible? It is such an abhorrent concept! And yet, here she is, openly … Continue reading


Mr Harold Camping’s second date for the rapture came and went without christ coming down from the heavens or a massive earthquake to mark the beginning of the five months of hell on earth. Here’s waht he had to say about this: “We were convinced that on May 21, God would return in a very … Continue reading

Hell? Really?

Feet of clay

> I keep reading the same things again and again, in different forms, in different books.. They all talk about the horror that religion has brought upon us, about the villainy associated with it, about the atrocities committed in its name. And with a morbid fascination I keep on reading, abhorring religion at every page … Continue reading

My religious views

> I am against organized religion. Have been for ages, even before I knew what it was exactly I was against. The whole idea of certain specific rites to be performed and certain ideas to be held sacrosanct over and above us mere mortals even if it was proved time and time again that those … Continue reading

Science? Oh God!

> Haven’t been reading much except for the one book I wish I hadn’t started. I had no idea how facile his arguments could be or I’d never have bought the book. “The Science of God” is based on denying any scientific fact the author can safely refuse to accept and where he cannot do … Continue reading
