Creationist Ken Ham has hit back against atheist author Richard Dawkins' claim that the idea of God can be disproved in five steps, posting his counter-arguments for each reason.
Dawkins appeared earlier in December on a Norwegian-Swedish television show, where he gave five main reasons for why he believes that no God exists.
Dawkins admits that although it is the job of believers to prove that there is a God, rather than atheists to disprove one, a universe without a deity would indeed be very different from a universe with one. more >>
Satanic groups in America are getting ready to perform Satanic ceremonies and rituals such as pouring blood over a Virgin Mary statue this Christmastime, a Catholic civil rights organization has warned.
"In a world where Christians are routinely being murdered and raped in the name of God, even non-believers must be curious about the rise of Satanism. Here at home we are also witnessing a surge in Satanic attacks," the Catholic League's Bill Donohue wrote in a press release this week.
Donohue pointed out that the Satanic Temple's chapter in Detroit is preparing for a "Satanic ceremony" at the grounds of Michigan's Capitol this weekend, aimed at countering a nativity scene. more >>
A county courthouse in Mississippi plans to keep a nativity scene on public display despite a letter of complaint from an atheist organization.
Earlier this month the American Humanist Association sent a letter to Harrison County officials demanding that a crèche on display at their courthouse grounds be removed.
The U.N.-recognized International Humanist and Ethical Union has recently released its annual report listing the countries in the world where it is considered most dangerous to be an atheist.
The report, entitled the Freedom of Thought Report for 2015, lists Malaysia, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia as the worst places to be an atheist in 2015.
The annual list reportedly bases its ranking on the country's history of discrimination against outspoken atheists and the current acceptance of atheism by the coutry's government. more >>
God bless them, Atheists are at it again.
It is Christmas time, the season of good cheer where we celebrate Jesus' birth, but rather than doing that, a group called American Atheists invite us by way of their new billboard campaign to "Go ahead and skip church! Just be good for goodness' sake." As if that's even possible.
Sure, anyone, including atheists, can do good works without acknowledging God, but that doesn't mean they do those good works apart from God because it's impossible to define "good" without also acknowledging good's creator, the moral law giver. If an objective standard of right and wrong or good and evil does not come from that moral law giver then clearly everything is subjective, based on the whims of whenever, however, and on whomever the wind might blow on any given day. more >>
Secular organizations will place a group of displays at the Nebraska capitol that will remain up on Christmas day, effectively muscling out a nativity scene.
Dubbed the "Reason This Season", the displays come courtesy a coalition of groups that include Lincoln Atheists, Omaha Atheists, Omaha Coalition of Reason, and UNO Council for Humanist Thought.
"Reason This Season" will be at the rotunda from Dec. 19-26, taking over all the spaces reserved for displays by any group that applies. As a result, the nativity scene currently on display at the capitol rotunda will be taken down on Dec. 18. more >>
