Richard Dawkins takes on Religion: Al-Jazeera TV


Mehdi Hasan interviews evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins at the Oxford Union and asks: Is religion a force for good or evil? Can it co-exist with science? Is science the new religion? And why if god does not exist, is religion so persistent?

Richard Dawkins demonstrates the evolution of the eye


Creationists and supporters of Intelligent Design like to point to what they call the "irreducible complexity" of the eye as proof of the existence of a designer/creator. In other words, they like to say that complex components of our physiology like the eye could not have come about through a process of evolution because they are not of any use until everything is in place and working. In this excerpt from his lecture "Growing Up In The Universe: Climbing Mount Improbable", Professor Dawkins demonstrates how something complex like the eye can indeed evolve.

An Example of Why Mother Teresa was no Saint!


"Mother Teresa once wrote a judge pleading leniency for swindler Chuck Keating, who defrauded thousands of people for $250 million. Keating gave Mother Teresa $1.25 million of the loot. When a prosecutor wrote to inform her the money was stolen and that she should return it, she gave no reply. Ever." - _Epic_Beard_Man_ on Reddit

First lets take a look at the letter sent by Mother Teresa.

And now the replies from Paul W. Turley the Deputy District Attorney




After reading that, do you really still believe that Mother Teresa deserves to be a Saint?

Goldsmiths University Islamist thugs fail to disrupt speech on blasphemy and apostasy


PLEASE NOTE: The video does not violate privacy rules since there was implicit consent and the filming of Maryam's speech was done publicly. Also given the fact that threats were made at the meeting, and that the Goldsmiths Atheists Society is collecting documentation towards an investigation into the ISOC members who disrupted and threatened the meeting, the entire video must remain online to ensure that full facts are available. Therefore, any requests for the removal of the video is denied.

14:40 and 35:20 minutes show the worst parts of the heckling

Maryam Namazie spoke on "apostasy, blasphemy and free expression in the age of ISIS" on 30 November 2015 at Goldsmiths University at the invitation of the Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society (ASH).

Goldsmiths Islamic Society (ISOC) called for the talk's cancellation saying Maryam's presence is "a violation to [their] safe space," and that she will "incite hatred and bigotry, at a very sensitive time for Muslims in the light of a huge rise in Islamophobic attacks."

When the talk went ahead as planned, ISOC "brothers" attended the meeting in order to disrupt and create a climate of fear and intimidation. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ISOC "SISTERS" AND OTHER MUSLIMS ATTENDING DID NOT SUPPORT OR DEFEND THEIR THUGGISH BEHAVIOUR.

Despite the many attempts of the ISOC "brothers," the meeting ended successfully and raised critical issues, including that criticism of Islam and Islamism are not bigotry against Muslims who are often the first victims of Islamism and on the frontlines of resistance. The meeting also helped expose the Islamists for what they are - thugs who cannot tolerate dissent.

Freedom of expression and the right to criticise and leave Islam without fear and intimidation is a basic human right.

Top 10 Reasons Jesus Christ Never Existed


Religion is one of the most enduringly powerful forces on earth.  Two of the most influential, both today and in the past, Christianity and Islam, believe that Jesus Christ played a pivotal role in both faiths.

Christians believe that Jesus was the son of God, born of a virgin birth, was crucified and resurrected for the remission of sins.  Muslims believe that Jesus was the product of a virgin birth brought forth by the command of Allah and became one of his most important (and subsequently revered) prophets.
Muslims do not believe that Jesus was crucified but that another man died in his place.

Whether or not we believe in the existence and life of Christ as a matter of faith most people are prepared to accept that Jesus was a real and verifiable historical figure; that he was born, lived and died in Judea between around 4BC and 33AD.  This has been repeated so many times that most people do not ever think to challenge it but should they?  Did a man called Jesus, son of Mary (and adoptive son of Joseph) walk the paths of Judea or was he merely a figment of imagination?  A group of stories and myths pulled together by a range of cynical individuals for a particular purpose?

If you are a Christian, of course, the existence of Christ is a matter of faith but should non-Christians believe in Jesus so readily?  Here are our top 10 reasons to claim that Jesus never existed.

In the interview, Maajid Nawaz and Sam Harris talk about their new book as well as the need to identify the ideology we're faced with as Islamism and not falling for the 'Voldemort Effect' in which we do not name the issue we're faced with. The interview also discusses how to begin defeating the Taliban in the long-run by challenging by identifying an challenging the ideology which underpins their actions.

Richard Dawkins: ‘Disgraceful’ Most Candidates Are Creationists


Wednesday on “The Alan Colmes Show,” Alan spoke with celebrated scientist and atheist Richard Dawkins about his new book called A Brief Candle In The Dark, which is a compilation of his views and stories about his life.

Dawkins told Alan he thinks it is disgraceful that most of the candidates running for the GOP nomination for President are creationists, even though molecular genetics can prove that evolution is scientific fact. They also discussed whether Dawkins would ever change his views on the existence of God, some of the great minds Dawkins has worked with, and why he gets a positive reaction in the Bible Belt despite his views on religion.

Religion VS Reality


When presented together, the two propositions in this video are obviously silly, yet only one of them is recognized as such. Why? Perhaps it has something to do with how our standards shift when we’re dealing with reality as opposed to dealing with something far more fantastical. Perhaps it also has something to do with having a well established political and social system of norms and traditions backing up and perpetuating one of those silly propositions, often presented to us by loved ones when we were vulnerable children, or emotionally compromised by something.

Why do people accept such silly beliefs, but then live as though they don’t actually believe those things? Perhaps it’s because servitude to a lifetime of running from the whip, whilst chasing the carrot, is too exhausting. I tend to think it’s just not real enough for them, and they’re lying to themselves, a skin-deep lie, because they want it to be true. Maybe they don’t believe as sincerely as their facade makes it seem. After all, if I believed my existence in eternity depends upon what I do in this fleeting instant of a life, then my every waking moment would be devoted to that eternity. Yet that’s not what we see when we look at most believers. We see people standing in line at the bank. We see people sitting in traffic, suffering occasional road rage. We see people not concerned with eternity. We see people concerned with reality.

Dave Allen - Religious Jokes


Irish comedian Dave Allen tells a series of religious jokes.

Every Sperm is Sacred - Monty Python's The Meaning of Life


Every Sperm is Sacred scene, taken from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. Terry Jones picked this as part of his Top 10 Monty Python Movie Moments for Esquire Magazine -

"There were about 60 kids and, even though some of the dialogue in this scene was considered a bit racy at the time, the parents were all happy to have their children take part. We did have Michael say, 'If only the Roman Catholic Church would let me wear a little rubber thing on the end of my sock,' though, and we dubbed it later. It's a long sequence, but I think it's one of my favorite bits of Python."

Oregon Court Upholds Convictions of Couple Who Sought 'Faith Healing' Instead of Doctor for Baby


The Oregon Supreme Court has upheld the 2011 manslaughter convictions of a faith-healing couple whose premature baby died after a homebirth when they didn’t seek medical treatment. Dale and Shannon Hickman are members of the Followers of Christ church in Oregon City, which the state said has a long history of children dying from preventable conditions because their parents refused them medical care.

The Hickmans, now both 30 years old, were convicted in 2011. A trial found that when Shannon went into labor two months early in 2009, the couple traveled to her mother’s house instead of a hospital. David Hickman was born weighing three pounds, seven ounces, and lived for less than nine hours. Courthouse News reports those convictions were upheld Thursday after several appeals.

A geologist and an Irish creationist debate atop of the Grand Canyon.

BBC Three 08 October 2012
Comedian Andrew Maxwell takes five British creationists to the west coast of America to try to convince them that evolution rather than creationism explains how we all got here. Stuck on a bus across 2,000 miles of dustbowl roads with these passionate believers, Maxwell tackles some firmly held beliefs - could the Earth be only 6,000 years old, and did humans and T-Rex really live side by side? It's a bumpy ride as he's confronted with some lively debates along the way, but by the end could he possibly win over any of these believers with what he regards as hard scientific fact?

Darwin Day 2015 Questions: How does evolution explain homosexuality?

Andrew Copson explains what Humanism is really all about


In a segment from The Big Questions in January 2015, a Christian named Taiwo Adeuyi says that Humanism is a 'first-class ticket to a sea of wantonness and deabauchery' and generally 'demonic.' Andrew Copson of the British Humanist Association calmly responds, and succinctly explains Humanism, a widely shared perspective which affirms that the best way to know what's really true is through evidence and the scientific method, and that a focus on human wellbeing should be at the centre of your moral outlook.

Bill Nye - Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation


Sparked by a controversial debate in February 2014, Bill Nye has set off on an energetic campaign to spread awareness of evolution and the powerful way it shapes our lives. In his new book, "Undeniable Evolution and the Science of Creation," he explains why race does not really exist; evaluates the true promise and peril of genetically modified food; reveals how new species are born, in a dog kennel and in a London subway; takes a stroll through 4.5 billion years of time; and explores the new search for alien life, including aliens right here on Earth. With infectious enthusiasm, Bill Nye shows that evolution is much more than a rebuttal to creationism; it is an essential way to understand how nature works—and to change the world.

Don’t miss this enlightening “In Conversation” with Bill Nye, hosted by Michael Shermer.
