SilverBack wrote a series of rebuttal articles recently, and one of the issues he raised was that delightful scene where God instructs poor Abraham to sacrifice his only son Isaac, only to rescind that instruction at the last minute.

Keita recently wrote an article entitled “Satanism and Happiness” wherein he explained that he is a pagan, not a Satanist, and that contrary to Christian belief, it is possible to be perfectly happy without the God of Abraham in one’s life.

This is in response to an article published on 5th September 2014 entitled "Nauseating writing that dehumanises the Individual" by PhilipPontious.

Hey God, it is me, Merry. I hope you remember me, God – I spent about 50 or so years believing in you, and worshipping you.

I have just read a report of an eight year old Yemeni “bride” dying on her wedding night, at the hands of her forty year old husband, from internal injuries due to sexual trauma.

I can understand some people being offended by religious jokes, and indeed, by Atheitis and his general tone and style of commenting, but for pity’s sake, we are ADULTS.

As far as personal beliefs are concerned, I would say that most atheists do not give a rat’s patootie about your personal beliefs – so long as you don’t try to force your personal beliefs onto anyone else.

UMDM health officials attributed the increasing numbers of HIV teenage girls to “Sugar Daddies”. These “men” are not sweet, neither is there anything even remotely “fatherly” about them.

I thought that “friendly dialogue and debate” meant talking nicely to one another, no name calling, no attacks on other religions...

If you have left your sense of humour at home, or are thin-skinned, then please do not read any further… I have no wish to offend anyone.

I see some folk have been getting their knickers in a twist lately about what it means to be an atheist, so I thought I would share the knowledge I have gained on the subject
