Some apologists actually think the accurate translation isn’t ‘cut off her hand,’ because that kind of “punishment by mutilation is inconsistent with the Bible.” The accurate translation, they say, is ‘to shave off her pubic hair.’ Cause that’s not mutilation, right guys?Look, here’s an article about it: http://debunkingchristianity.blogspot.com/2011/07/underhanded-biblical-interpretation.html?m=1Great job, Bible!

Good news: I finally found a scholarship for atheists

Bad news: I have to explain how I am an activist for atheism

??????

Sorry I was too busy being concerned with real issues like feminism and racism to care if we take “under God’ out of the Pledge of Allegiance????

Religion is a driver in oppressing women and minorities. Religion creates insular communities with arbitrary rules. Fighting for women and racial minorities is an effort to tear down the walls religion has built. You’re advocating for an open community that embraces diversity and equality and shuns segregation and traditional values.

I’d say that’s being active in atheism. There’s much more at stake than ‘under god’ in the pledge.

Recently Matt Dillahunty and Ray Comfort had a ‘debate’ on a radio show. Or, more accurately, Comfort refused to address Dillahunty and took a dishonest approach by using the time to simply preach.

I figured since so many we’re laughing about that silly Comfort book cover going around, you should listen to the banana man himself. Enjoy!

Transgender woman stands up to Arizona religion law →

Guys, if their religion is to discriminate against people of transgender experience, we have to just respect their beliefs and not hold them to any standard of evidence. That’s what’s offensive here, the idea that they don’t get to steamroll over the entirety of culture with their religious delusions.

Does anyone get pissed when you tell them why Amway is a scam?

Religion is just a more effective con because it calls anyone who questions it ‘offensive.’

Babylonian tale of round ark draws ire from some Christian circles →

Yeah, it’s the geometry that’s suspicious about this story,
