Updates To The Site

Atheist Update is back online after about six months of being down! Scheduling conflicts and an issue with our domain registrar caused significant delays in getting back up and running but everything should be good to go now.

You can look for some changes in the site design in the near future as we have a new contributor here who is also a graphic artist.  Troy Boyle will be designing a new logo for us as his schedule allows. There will be no change in the content but the layout and design of the site will shift accordingly.

President Obama has secured a second term in office.  While this would seem to be a victory for the 'common' agenda of secularists everywhere, it could also mean that some of the most disturbing trends are likely to continue (NASA funding, etc.).  Thoughts?

The GOD issue

NewScientist has posted a series of articles from their God Issue: New science of religion that runs the gamut, from the possible biological origins of religion, to why it still persists today in the 'age of reason' to what, if anything, a secular human society should borrow from religion to complete itself.

Site Reconfigured

The new site is up and running.  This new format should be a good starting point for us to spread the word about Atheists and Freethinkers~! 

We have opened up the comments section on the posts to registered users.  This means that anyone with an OpenID or Google account can comment on any post in the blog.  This was done so that we could mitigate some of the trolling that so often comes with the subject of atheism.

Out of my skin - or - Out of my mind.

A comment from the story on CNN.

I had the pleasure of seeing a post on Facebook about a story that CNN was running on the book of Revalation. The article was informative and took a deeply scientific approach to the topic. The auther went into the history of the book and its author.

The most enlightening aspect of this article was not the content, however. The comments (as shown above) were what interested me the most. It's comments like the one above that completely destroy all credibility for the religious in the scientific community. Please keep in mind that this is just my opinion.

I have listed the link to the article and the comment (assuming it has not been removed) below. There are many other comments just like this one but you will be reading for a while since there were over 4,000 comments at the time of this writing.

Spiritual Atheist?

I was trolling through the Internet today and I came across the most wonderful article:

Spiritual Atheist

This article really touched me. I'd never
really thought about this in an honest way before. Please leave comments and let me know what you think about it.
