Not even ISIS can halt the march of the non-believers

Posted by doctore0 on November 24, 2015


atheistlicenceplateFifty years ago, after the cracking of the genetic code, Francis Crick was so confident religion would fade that he offered a prize for the best future use for Cambridge’s college chapels. Swimming pools, said the winning entry. Today, when terrorists cry “God is great” in both Paris and Bamako as they murder, the joke seems sour. But here’s a thought: that jihadism may be a last spasm — albeit a painful one — of a snake that is being scotched. The humanists are winning, even against Islam.

Quietly, non-belief is on the march. Those who use an extreme form of religion to poison the minds of disaffected young men are furious about the spread of materialist and secularist ideas, which they feel powerless to prevent. In 50 years’ time, we may look back on this period and wonder how we failed to notice that Islam was about to lose market share, not to other religions, but to humanism.

The fastest growing belief system in the world is non-belief. No religion grew nearly as fast over the past century. Whereas virtually nobody identified as a non-believer in 1900, today roughly 15 per cent do, and that number does not include soft Anglicans in Britain, mild Taoists in China, lukewarm Hindus in India or token Buddhists in Japan. Even so, the non-religious category has overtaken paganism, will soon pass Hinduism, may one day equal Islam and is gaining on Christianity. (Of every 10 people in the world, roughly three are Christian, two Muslim, two Hindu, 1.5 non-religious and 1.5 something else.)

Religious kids are harsher and less generous than atheist ones, study says

Posted by doctore0 on November 6, 2015


When it comes to teaching kids the Golden Rule, Sunday school might not be the best bet.

A new study in the journal Current Biology found children in religious households are significantly less generous than their non-religious peers.

At the same time, religious parents were more likely than non-religious ones to consider their children empathetic and sensitive to the plight of others.

It’s a common assumption in the United States that faith goes hand-in-hand with goodness. The Pew Research Center reported last year that 53 percent of Americans think it’s necessary to believe in God to be moral.

Americans overwhelmingly elect Christian representatives, and they distrust atheists.

This study challenges those attitudes. It was the children in non-religious homes most likely to be generous toward a stranger. The longer a child had lived in a religious home, the stingier he was compared to his secular peers.

Christians Pray Against Atheist Group Trying To Stop Government Endorsement Of Religion

Posted by doctore0 on October 15, 2015

..Hmm and what does the bible say about this, lets check
When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 6″But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.” Oops:)

Humanist group says Rankin County teacher called atheist student a fool

Posted by doctore0 on October 14, 2015


FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) –

jebusdecisionA humanist group has sent a letter to the Rankin County School District claiming that a teacher called an atheist student a “fool”.

The American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center sent the letter on behalf of a parent whose child attends Northwest Rankin High School.

According to the group, a history teacher has frequently made derogatory comments about atheists and promoted Christianity during class. The teacher, who the group claims is a pastor of Rehobeth Baptist Church, reportedly announced to his class, “Atheists are throwing a fit because they don’t have their own day. They do have their own day; it’s called April Fools’ Day, because you are a fool if you don’t believe in God.”

The letter states that, as atheists, the student and the parent feel unwelcome in the district because of the teacher’s comments.

The group also references instances in the past where the school district allegedly endorsed religion.
