The Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy and Rewriting American History

I’m in Phoenix at the moment about to speak on the topic of “A Nation ‘Under God’: Hype, Hysteria, or Heritage?” If you listen to groups like the Freedom from Religion Foundation that sued the IRS to get it to monitor churches on the political content of their sermons, a

Woody Allen says Life is Meaningless and I Would Assume Without Morals

An atheist post on Facebook got me thinking about the meaning of life. The post was about how beef production is ten times more damaging to the environment than automobiles. Putting aside the factual basis of the study and who funded it, I raised a couple of questions: “I thought

Judge John G. Heyburn Says Man’s Law Higher than God’s Law

Judges around the country have become a law unto themselves. There were five church-going judges in Alabama who ruled that sodomy marriages are constitutional. Their Christianity made no difference in their lives. I don’t know who to blame, the churches they attend who separate the Christian faith from politics (and

Christian Band is Made Up of Atheists

I’ve never been much of a fan of contemporary Christian music. The message is too soft. This does not make me a big fan of many traditional hymns either. Many of them are too sentimental and breed a form of cultural escapism. Some so-called Christian bands have tried to emulate

“Meet the New Boss . . . Same as the Old Boss”

A painting I saw led me to write this article. It’s posted below. In 1982 I wrote the first volume in what became a three-volume set called God and Government. It has since been republished in one volume. I run into people all the time who tell me that they

No God, New Gods, and All Hell Breaks Loose

The rise of the new atheists is getting a lot of attention. They are everywhere. It’s fashionable to be a new atheist. It’s the “in thing.” I can hear people at fashionable cocktail parties saying, “Yes, I’m an atheist.” Someone overhears the conversation and joins in, “I’m also an atheist.

Are Psychopaths Just Consistent Atheists?

A recent article declares, “We think of psychopaths as killers, alien, outside society. But, says the scientist who has spent his life studying them, you could have one for a colleague, a friend – or a spouse.” Consider the serial killer Dennis Lynn Rader, known as the BTK murderer. “BTK”

Chris O’Dowd is Another Atheist Who Proves He’s a Fool

Chris O’Dowd is an actor who made some comments about religion in Britain’s GQ magazine. Being an actor doesn’t make him any smarter or dumber than anybody else. His opinions are one in around 7 billion at any given time. Opinions are free, and he’s free to espouse them, even

Will Ryan Bell be Able to Live as a Consistent Atheist?

Before a show like Extreme Makeover, there was Queen for a Day that first ran as a radio show and was later picked up for television from 1956 to 1964. Four pitiful and woeful women would tell their story to a studio audience. After hearing tortuous tales of discomfort, the

Atheist Billboard Says It’s OK to Murder, Rape, and Steal

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has started a new ad campaign pushing atheism as the foundation for all of life. Of course, the ad campaign doesn’t say that a person should murder, rape, or steal, but there’s nothing within the context of “Enjoy Life Now” that says a person can’t

Atheists Have No Business Suing over Marriage (or Anything)

An atheist organization has sued the Indiana state government over its marriage statute. The atheists are arguing that the law forbids them from having their own non-religious official perform a marriage ceremony. This is where I start asking a few questions. Here’s the first one: Where in the atheistic evolutionary

Atheists want to erase history, deny freedom of expression, and reject the original meaning of the First Amendment. The latest publicity stunt was made by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), a Madison, Wisconsin-based atheist and agnostic group that intimidates anyone who holds to religious beliefs and municipalities that even
