Atheism and Evil in the Name of God

Evil in the Name of God I recently saw an animated short created by an atheist on YouTube. In this video, a bunch of theists were trying to tell an atheist about God.

Attitude Adjustment How did 9/11 change America’s attitude toward religion? An interesting post on CNN’s Belief Blog says: “Before 9/11, many atheists kept a low profile. Something changed, though, after 9/11. They got loud… Criticism of all religion, not just fanatical cults, was no longer taboo after 9/11.” Indeed.

Are You Good Without God? Why this Atheist Billboard is Wrong

Are You Good without God? While I was driving from Sacramento to the Bay Area, I saw a huge billboard that read, “Are you good without God?
