Fear and Loathing in Kentucky: The Humiliation of Ken Ham

by: Dan Hettmannsperger III Like most of you I watched the debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham with great interest. Looking back on it now there is much that stands out, not the least of which being the civility of Bill Nye and the astonishing hubris of Ken Ham, an embarrassment to Western Civilization if ever there was one. As a man that spends a great deal of my own time in debate forums (my favorite is GOD’S FRIENDS AND FOES on Facebook, which I highly recommend) I couldn’t help but notice that Ken’s tactics were both predictable and frankly disappointing. I’m not...

Haters gonna hate

I love it when people message me or comment directly here on We Are Atheism to tell me horrible things or to insult someone who had the courage to come out and tell the world they are an atheist.  What’s great is there are moments when someone goes above and beyond and I just have to share this one with you. Here is what Neil attempted to post on Tomas Vogter’s coming out page. “Oh there you are you dickhead ! remember me I’m the man on youtube who smash your ridiculous theories on so called slut shamming to pieces and you blocked me because you don’t have an answer....

Earth vs. Islam

BY: Dan Hettmannsperger III I have personally grown deeply tired of the same lie being repeated over and over again by apologists for Islam and the Islamic world: That Islam is a religion of peace.  Not only is this a lie but it is an absurdity as vast as the claim that the earth is flat or that the sun orbits the earth.  How can anyone with a straight face assert that Islam is a “religion of peace”?  One need only look at the current global situation to see otherwise.  Even as I write these words the humanitarian crisis in Syria only grows worse, Palestinians continue to use...

Sex and the Single-Atheist

by: Dan Hettmannsperger III Should Atheists date Christians?  In a nation where more than 80% of the populace are theists who are overwhelmingly Christian this is a serious question for the man or woman who wants to seek someone that is equally reasonable. So let me tell you about my own experiences and let you draw your own conclusions. I’m forty-five years old so believe me I’ve had more than a few in this arena. My first significant relationship was with a Christian I’ll call Laura. Laura was a woman of Southern background I met when I was only 18, and she was 20. We...

International Imad Day

We Are Atheism is proud to stand with Imad Iddine Habib.  We know how incredibly difficult it is for him to take a stand and we want everyone to know his story, stand beside him, and let him know we are here with him in his fight for religious freedom. The following is information on how you can help Imad and others like him: By: Maryam Namazie Since 22 year old Imad Iddine Habib founded the Council of Ex-Muslims of Morocco (the first public atheist organisation in a country with Islam as the state religion), he has received numerous threats. Morocco’s High Council of Ulemas (the highest...

The Secret Origin of Religion (Part II)

By: Dan Hettmannsperger III Of course it is common knowledge that Christianity began as a goof perpetrated by the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce that got so far out of hand it ended up becoming the largest religion in the world. Right?  Well, actually, no that’s not what happened but if it had it would probably make more sense then the truth, which is murky and more then a little frustrating.  There is a pattern one finds in the growth of religions that is unmistakable and it goes like this: at some point a man comes along (it’s always a man, women who have serious work to do...
