Radical Islam, or Just Islam?

Nov 05, 2013 - Tags:

Watching this video of self-professed "non-radical, normal Muslims" at an Islamic peace conference in Norway should scare the shit out of people living in the modern world. An audience full of people who publicly agree that men and women should sit apart, that adulterers should be stoned to death, that the death penalty should be given to homosexuals, and any other horrible punishment, "if Allah (and his messenger) says that it is the best punishment there is". And that we, the rest of the world, should be subjected to the same rules. Spooky. In short. It's not radical.

Why are you an atheist? An answer in Corinthians.

A religious answer to the question, "Why are you an atheist?" can be found in countless places in the Bible (or Quran or Talmud). The various holy books are, if people actually bother to read them, the best manuals for creating atheists that you can find. In my life, I've read the Bible three times in its entirety and every time, it has strengthened my disbelief. Since I know the Bible better than the other Abrahamic holy books, that is where I find a good deal of my inspiration.

Costco and Bible Fiction

The folks over at FOX News are running an article about a Costco outlet that sold Bibles with a sticker that identified them as fiction. This was followed up with the expected outpouring of outrage and Costco changing the stickers on at least some of the bibles.
