Is the Pope having an each-way bet?

I find the Pope’s opinions on two topics in particular, as reported, highly confusing and somewhat illogical. The Pope leads 1.2 billion Catholics around the world. I was very encouraged to read an encyclical will be issued on climate change. So too the promised encyclical on the environment will provide both encouragement for, and a call […]

Religion belongs in the dark ages

Today I read an article by one who once was training to be a priest. Alex Mooney says: There are no gods, no heaven, no hell, no miracles. There never has been. There never will be. This is way beyond reasonable doubt now. There is not one shred of evidence anywhere to prove the existence […]

Leaving Islam – the greatest jihad?

by Aisha Ashraf   The news is full of muslim converts striking out for Syria to answer the IS call to jihad, but what about those who no longer feel connected to Islam? In a religion inconsistent with science, logic, human rights and ethics, one so riddled with contradiction it offers equal endorsement of opposing arguments, rational-minded […]

Let’s get one thing perfectly clear. Terrorists are terrorists. Regular readers know as an atheist I don’t have a lot of tolerance for religions. I acknowledge there are a lot of very good religious people but I believe those people are good people with or without religion: they would be great humanists. Religion didn’t make […]

Bodies of 800 children found in septic tank at former Irish home for unwed mothers Most of the media, main and social, is awash with either the federal budget or the Victorian political “crisis”. Yet here is a story to break anyone’s heart. The fate of unwed mothers and […]

There are days I despise the human race

There are days I despise the human race: today is one of them. Regular readers know I am a “Criminal Minds” fan. I rarely get to watch it on the actual TV, I tend to catch-up by watching episodes on the computer. Last night I watched episode 19 of series 8 about a guy kidnapping […]

Abbott the UnAustralian

He’s done it AGAIN! What does Abbott have to do to make people wake up to the fact this man is NOT Prime Ministerial material? As if all the videos on YouTube of him avoiding journalists, or his terrible performance when Leigh Sales interviewed him, or his lack of knowledge of things he SHOULD know […]

Dave Allen on religion

Religion from the perspective of a four-year-old. This video was pointed out to me tonight during a conversation about religion and I just had to share it with our audience.  To those of you too young to remember Dave Allen, he was perhaps one of the greatest comedians of my generation my parent’s generation.  I […]
