065 – You Are NOT Alone – Atheists

You’ve just realized, you’ve accepted it, you’re an Atheist.  Now what?  Are there others?  Are there any Atheists near me?  It can be an isolating feeling.  But really, you’re not alone at all.  Most of us will attempt backflips at the sign of a new Atheist friendship.  And although we have no morals and are without empathy, we are incredibly welcoming.

Fortunately, those that have come before us, have seen the need and started groups and meetups and online forums just for you.  You are NOT alone!

Meet More Atheists

Online you can find a plethora of groups to interact with and form new friendships.  Some are specifically for helping those make the transition and understand exactly how that feels.  Here are some helpful links:

  • Facebook groups – search atheist or humanist or agnostic ( I searched “recovering from religion” and found several groups, both private and open)
  • Atheist Nexus (A list with links to many great groups for the heathen in us all)
  • Recovering from Religion (
  • – It will search your area for possible groups and if you don’t see one – start your own (it’s easy)
  • – Many Atheist and Secular groups

064 – Black, Gay, Liberal & Atheist – Matt Slick CARM

My eyeballs leaked a little last night.  One caller shared the trials of being black, gay, liberal and an Atheist living in Texas.  He has a great attitude while sharing what many would find reasonable to cause depression and anger.  Of all the challenges, the one that causes him the most grief is being black.  It hurt my heart as he shared but I believe he has found new hope from those that responded to his story last night.

Grillin with AtheistsOf course, Pastor Roy’s message was a hit and Professor Stephen did an outstanding job once again.  Matt Slick, from joined the chatroom and later joined us via our live video feed on Google Hangouts.  Unfortunately he was offended when his antics were matched by Bill Robins and Dave Foda.  I really enjoyed his appearance but I can say with sincerity that if I was in in shoes and had nothing but word games and transparent arguments I would have left too.

Christian Apologist Matt Slick

Matt Slicks arguments boil down to one thing… a personal experience.  He had one personal experience that provides him with absolution on the truth of Scripture.  When challenged with the personal experiences others have had in their religions, he called it “Demonic”.  It’s the everybody else’s experiences were fake and mine is real argument.

Personal experience is not, by itself, enough reason to believe something is true. And that’s just as true for religion as anything else. Our personal experience told us for centuries that the sun orbited the earth. To be reasonably certain that what our experience tells us is probably true, we need to rely on rigorous testing of hypotheses. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across. – Greta Christina

It could be fear or a combination of fear, indoctrination, confirmation biases and others that prevent Matt from looking at his “proof” from a position of reason and logic.  My optimism gets the better of me and I long for the day he sees the light.  What a huge asset he would be to our movement.  No longer would he be restricted by Bronze Aged ideologies, no longer would he be required to employ dishonest and squirely  answers, instead he’d be free to think, free to reason and certainly would encourage others to do the same.

We had numerous connection problems which caused many not to be able to talk with us live.  I do however record a raw file and then post it on Stitcher, iTunes, Spreaker and Libsyn in it’s full glory.  Click play above to listen to it here or use your favorite podcast app.

The Rant

Before we have sex, we pray to invite the holy spirit in.  And why wouldn’t you.  Voyeurs are great, but invisible voyeurs who can keep the sex stuff completely reverent is far better.

Imagine your partner is super horny and want’s to stick his finger his your ass as you’re about to cum, well that can be avoided if you’ll just invite the holy ghost in the room.

It’s how I know God has no problems with threesomes.  Fuck, he, Jesus and the holy ghost are the epitome of threesomes.  So really it’s a 5 some.


Hell yea!  God, Jesus and the holy ghost watching you have sex.  It’s like fucking in the chapel or in the baptismal font.  It’s hard not to feel the spirit and remain reverent.


Some Moron, I mean Mormon lady writes a blog.  She discusses much about sex and shared once with her followers – the beauty of inviting the holy ghost in the room prior to peeling off your clothes.  I think the blog has been dormant now for a while, I mean a blog about marital intimacy among mormon couples doesn’t really have a wealth of resources to insure it’s continuation.


Although this post is years old, it’s not an uncommon thought process among Mormons.  Sex is sacred, it’s not to be shared with anyone but between you and the partner you picked out in the preexistence and of course with the holy ghost.


Mormons must continually reassure each other through articles, social media, church meetings and televised events, that their particular ideologies are normal and must be defended.


It’s not just mormons either, most Christians will do the same.  They will ban together on abortion being murder or that certain types of sex between consenting adults violates the Jesus consensus.


I remember as a teen the church officially declared oral sex to be immoral and sinful.  At the time this made perfect sense, I never questioned it.  In marriage I couldn’t avoid the temptation to go down because, hell, I’m a vagina man.  Those beautiful labia are like crack cocaine to an addict.  But each time I failed, I felt guilty and I felt bad.

Yet most every mormon, at least all TB mormons will defend these moral edicts.  There is no thought given to them, their is no reasoning or logic used.  It all comes down to whether the command given by the church authorities were inspired.  And by inspired I mean by God.


Sex is wonderful, it’s a sacred act but on the other side of the same coin are those sexual things that Satan invented.  Porn, anal, oral, dress up and make believe.  All abuses of the God given holy sex.


Is this not demonstrable evidence for religious harm?  But who does it harm?  Speaking from experience, Me, it fucking harmed me.  I lived in guilt from the time I had my first sexual thought.

But marriage brought more guilt.  I couldn’t resist the fun and sinful parts of sex.  It’s really a miserable existence.  Surrounded by Mormon friends and family, I always felt inferior.  They’d share a miracle story about how they were almost out of gas but the station manager hadn’t left yet because he spilled a bottle of grape juice on his way out the door… big miracles like that, where God intervenes daily with their lives.  All I could think, is I wonder if they could see the sin on me.


I couldn’t violate the sanctity of the all male priesthood – for I was a sinner and I couldn’t resist the temptations of oral sex.  How many Mormons feel the same, how many have pathetic and unsatisfying sex lives for fear of violating Mormon Jesus’s commands?


A family friend, also a Mormon,  had a wife, children and from all appearances a very happy home.  One day his wife found his computer with a history including porn sites.  Now in Mormon circles, you just had well built an alter to satan himself, right in the goddamned living room and invited demons into you home.  Lambs blood optional.


She reported his actions to the church authorities and he was directed into counseling for his addiction.  Of course his Priesthood callings were removed and he was put on restriction which meant he couldn’t attend church meetings nor participate in sacrament.  (which is just the mormon version of cannibalistic jesus flesh and blood eating)

In the Mormon church, to look at porn is proof of addiction.  He was a good husband, an excellent father and loved the church.   So he went.  He prayed, fasted and showed real remorse for his actions.


Months later, he was found to have fallen off the proverbial wagon again.  He was double addicted I assume.  The church gave his wife a free pass for divorce, which annulled the sacred eternal marriage in the Temple and they were done.


Children now see dad occasionally and Mom struggles to raise the children without a dad.  Lives ruined and shattered for absolutely nothing.


This story is repeated over and over and over in the LDS church.  The imaginary disease of porn addiction is rampant in the LDS community.  Utah, home to a majority population of Mormons holds the record per capita in gay porn downloads on the web according to Google Stats.


How many families are being destroyed, right now,  due to this ignorant and harmful way of thinking?  And porn is only one of the many sins that can destroy a normal and healthy family.


At one time an interracial marriage could do the same.  Fuck, the Mormon church still convicts on thought crimes.  A typically interview with the Bishop, at least annually includes:  Have you had any thoughts that are unworthy and that you have failed to repent for?”


Why yes, I was just thinking about whether your wife’s red hair and freckles were evident on her vagina too.


Fuck me, you can’t escape the guilt and remorse for being human within the membership of fucktarded Mormonism.  I now believe it’s intentional.  I know the church leaders, especially the Prophet who’s books tell him that he should be talking to God daily and that God actually will talk back, often giving commands and prophecy directly – must know it’s all horseshit.  It’s all a scam.  He must know!


Now I’ve picked on Mormons here, but the case can be made that every single religion has codes, commands, rules and edicts that call the normal unnatural and sinful.  This creates pain, it creates harm, it destroys from within and it is the essence of immorality.


Do you think that their is one healthy man on earth that doesn’t lust?  Yet every major religion forbids it.  Fuck, fake Jesus Christ himself says in the Bible that lust is the same as doing the act.  It’s an abomination and is sin.


Coincidence of ignorance or a diabolic plan to attack everyone and know that those who really believe will seek repentance.  Money, prayer but mostly money in the form of tithes and offerings are the most widely encouraged penance for your sinful ways.


Christopher Hitchens once debated that religion should be removed, that it’s harms far outweigh the claimed benefits.  Greta Christina wrote a book on the subject using modern day examples of harm.


But even if all we could select is one harm to argue our case against religion, I think it’s the biggest and most destructive to society is the guilt, the harm done by religions views on sex.


The most christian states statistically have the highest rates of sex abuse on children and the highest rates of porn downloads.  Why, because you make breathing a sin, you won’t stop it, but you will force them to seek other avenues and options to get the much needed air.


Religion has said that abstinence is the only way to satisfy Jesus, yet the states who have the most churches and the most faithful believers, they also have the most teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.  All of which demand abstinence.


Christianity is a disease, it’s a poison and it’s lethal to humanity.  It’s doctrines and edicts serve to harm the populous all the while under the guise of morality.  Fuck your morality, fuck your religious bullshit and fuck you.

We received a comment on the atheist on air blog this week.  And I quote:  Atheist and Theist should stop arguing about who is right or wrong. The world will be a better place if we all just start being better people. Love your fellowman and show him that you do. Stop blogging about it and start being about it…..that goes for both sides

In short:  Why can’t we all just get along – lil doggies?

This argument that it can all be fixed with tolerance and maybe the displaying of a Coexist bumper sticker on your car is absurd.  The religious have a code that’s represented by the dogma of their particular set of beliefs.

In most religions and for the sake of brevity, I’ll stick to one, the Christian Dogma.  It says that unbelievers are to be killed, that’s new testament red letter jesus said i and I believe it shit right there.

From the beginning, the Bible pours our a litany of codes and edicts that if adhered to, then it makes impossible the concept of getting along.  The dogma is completely contradictory to that goal.

So the blog commenter is unknowingly telling the Religious to stop believing and following their doctrines, which is exactly what the fuck we atheists are already doing.

He’s simply preaching to the wrong crowd.

These types of remarks and comments cause me to throw up a little bit.  Sure you can claim that you believe we should all get along, but in order to do so you must first destroy their coveted and strongly held beliefs dictated by an invisible man in the sky.

Another one that causes me more angst, is the ignorance behind those touting religion as a force for good upon the earth.

What good?  I’ve heard the arguments given by the likes of Tony Blair, Dinesh D’Souza, John Onaiyekan, Anne Witacum and others.  Yet not one reasonable claim.  All claims are borrowed from the works of mankind and touted by religion.


Their works are manifested in the gold laden halls of their churches and synagogues, their works proudly stand as temples and churches across the land, they own ranches, cattle, theme parks, planes, mansions, cities and power.

None of which bolster or improve humanity.  Sure, good people within a religion can do good things but for religion to claim their works –  as the source —- is dishonest.

One could say that Love and I do good works and then Hanes and Victoria Secret could claim reward because we wear their undergarments.

Religion could do good works.  It could funnel all funds back into the community via it’s members and their works.

Some will claim that the church helped pay the electric bills of the elderly, that it helped find it’s members jobs, that it runs a food bank feeding others and that it has built homes in other lands, but all those works are but insignificant compared to the volumes of funds collected.


If religious organizations disappeared today would humanity suffer?  Would anyone notice their absence?  I’m asking would there any significant ill effects?

The largest religious organizations, The Southern Baptists, the Mormons and the Catholics hold huge reserves of wealth.  Any of these could provide the end to Worldwide hunger and death by starvation tomorrow if they chose.  Yet largely their efforts are to influence public policy, to restrict who can do what with whom in what way and in the privacy of their own bedrooms.  Instead they use their wealth  influencing policy that restricts the rights of others, that inhibits a woman’s abilities to do with her body as she chooses, to challenge science, to encourage ignorance and to create guilt from thin air so as to guarantee the coffers are overflowing.


Combined these religious groups and sects are the largest recipients of public welfare.  They contribute annually to the debt of the nation while schools, science, exploration and humanitarian efforts are lacking funds.


Religion is the welfare queen that Ronald Reagan should have denounced.  Instead he set the blame on the shoulders of the least able.

Religion is the real gateway drug, it’s administered liberally to those least able to reason, it’s responsible for the inerrant ideologies and superstitions about demons, witches, evil, the devils, crop circles, aliens, area 51, homeopathy, ion cleansing, ghosts, goblins and the list goes on and on.


They indoctrinate the young minds and create a cycle of ignorance that’s harm becomes perpetual.


To say religion does good while ignoring it’s bad can be likened to the Nazi sympathizers who tout the breakthroughs in science during the war.  The Nazi party invested much time and lives into discoveries such as rockets, hypothermia, forensics, pharmaceuticals and more.


To claim a benefit from religion one must remain willfully ignorant or be immoral.  Religion is responsible for the rampant aids epidemic, for inequality and racism in America, Religion is responsible in the resurrection of disease over the past few years, religion is responsible for untold amounts of psychological damage to children in their threats of hell and eternal damnation, religion is responsible for most of the lack in sex education and the overwhelming evidence that these lacking children have much higher occurrence of teen pregnancy, STI’s, drop out rates and child abuse.


I could go on and on and show that almost every ill of society can be attributed in some way to religion and it’s corrupt doctrines.


Dare not to inform us that religion does good and that belief is beneficial and don’t think for a second that your idle ignorant babble about coexisting and peace mean a god damn thing.  These useless statements stand only to demonstrate your overwhelming ignorance and your unabated fucktardedness!  You are either immoral or a fool and either way:  FUCK YOU!
