Atheists for Terri

March 30, 2005 | 123 Comments

Long-time civil libertarian and atheist Nat Hentoff, on the Judicial Murder of Terri Schiavo: “[W]e have watched as this woman, whose only crime is that she is disabled, is tortured to death by judges, all the way to the Supreme Court . . . . [i]n this country, even condemned serial killers are not executed in this way.” Among other things, Hentoff derides the “disgracefully ignorant coverage” of the case by the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles times, and notes that “nearly every major disability rights organization in the country has filed a legal brief in support of Terri’s right to live.” Read the whole thing.

As Hentoff notes, Ralph Nader also finds the treatment of the doomed woman to be a “profound injustice.”

So it’s not just the religious right.

Calling the ACLU

March 29, 2005 | 24 Comments

Douglas S. Smith, Jr., National Program Director, Boy Scouts of America, defending his organization against charges of discrimination against gay and atheists in a September 2004 letter to the editor:

Some intolerant elements in our society want to force scouting to abandon its values and to become fundamentally different. They want scouting to forego its constitutional rights, affirmed in 2000 by the Supreme Court in BSA v. Dale, and adopt fundamentally different values from the ones that helped shape the character of Mr. Collins [an Eagle Scout who had written a letter critical of the Boy Scouts’ position] and 106 million other young men over the past 94 years.

It bothers Mr. Collins that scouting is defending itself, even though he acknowledged that it has been “dragged into” the “culture war.” He says the tone of our legal-issues web site, bsalegal.org, is defensive. The site does seek to defend our values and to inform the public about the three-decade-long legal assault on scouting. That we need a legal-issues web site is testament to the fact that our constitutional rights are under attack.

Clearly, Mr. Collins longs for a time when the Boy Scout organization could give its undivided attention to the “good stuff” of Scouting: “camping and life skills . . . ” So do we. Mr. Collins would do well to communicate his displeasure to those directing their discriminatory assault against his beloved Boy Scouts — the ACLU.

Fake Religious Leader Urges Madonna to Convert From Fake Kabbalah to Fake Wicca

March 29, 2005 | 4 Comments

New York, New York, March 29, 2005
Special to The Raving Atheist

The president of a faux-Catholic organization has suggested that Madonna convert from her fake form of Jewish mysticism to a fake form of witch-worship, reports today’s New York Post.

Bill Donohue, whose own “Catholic League” has no official ties to the Vatican or the Church hierarchy, made his recommendation after Madonna appeared dressed as a nun at a Kabbalah party celebrating the Jewish holiday of Purim. Madonna’s husband, director Guy Ritchie, came dressed as Pope John Paul II in a red cape, gold-trimmed white robe and matching skullcap.

“Her husband suggests that he’s just as depraved as his wife,” said Donohue. “I suggest that next time, Madonna dress up in something more suited to her, such as from the Wiccan religion. And the Catholic League would donate a broom to her husband — with instructions on what to do with it.”

Donohue’s reference to “what to do with it” was widely interpreted as alluding to an involuntary and painful rectal insertion accomplished by shoving, a practice popular among Catholic clerics.

Madonna belongs to the Kabbalah Centre, which has drawn fire from true Kabbalists for explaining the impenetrable secrets of the universe in non-coded, understandable self-help form, and for overcharging for evil-repelling red strings and magic bottled watered. But true Wiccans have also criticized the form of Wicca recommended by Donohue, noting that the authentic religion does not promote a belief in witches. Rather, it is practiced by people who merely call themselves “witches,” brew potions, casts spells and worship the God and Goddess.

Madonna countered that the Catholic League is fake, insofar as the real Church is not run by Bill Donohue but a Pope who believes in the resurrection of a virgin-born martyr and dresses in a costume identical to that worn by Mr. Ritchie.

Claude Nostrand, Vicar of the First National Barking Spider Revivalist Tabernacle, expressed pleasure that the fake religions were engaging in a constructive public dialogue. “It’s heartening to see them put aside their differences and celebrate their common fakeness,” he said. “What matters is that they recognize that what is at the center of each of their faiths is the same — a shared core of hysterically insane lies borrowed from the mainstream fairy tale religions.”

Goodbye, Terri

March 26, 2005 | 80 Comments

The religious right, it is said, is conspiring to trample Terri’s rights, to defeat Terri’s wishes. But whatever the cynicism and hypocrisy of its leaders (and I agree there is plenty), I think the attitude held among those clamoring for her death is at least as religious. If Ms. Schindler-Schiavo is what their premises insist — a faux-human husk — she is not a thing capable of having wishes or rights. She is not in a position to hate her predicament or desire a way out of it. To say it is humane it kill her is to assume she is capable of appreciating humanity. To say she should be allowed to die with dignity is to assume that she is somehow more capable of demanding dignity than a corpse.

Indeed, the very reason that starvation has been allowed as the method for her demise is that she is well beyond suffering. If there was courage behind that conviction the expedient of a lethal injection or a bullet to the brain would be employed. Or, better yet, she’d be buried still breathing.

As I said here, I think she should be given the benefit of the doubt. There is no great harm in preserving her life. Nor is some great principle, some grand universal moral imperative, served by killing her. Keep in mind that it is nothing more than a wish of her husband. If he wished otherwise no one would have heard of her and certainly no one would be extolling the virtues of her death.

Keeping her alive is expensive, perhaps; a tube must be filled and her body cleaned. But the argument has little force in a nation awash in iPods and plagued by obesity. We can listen to one less song and eat one less hamburger. We can build more hospitals and still spend the money to save that little girl trapped in a well, or that woman trapped in her own body. And we are all safer in a nation populated by people like my friend Ashli, who (whatever their delusions about the afterlife), so madly embrace life in all its forms and at all its stages rather than give the presumption to death.

Terri will die on Easter and much will be made of that timing by people you detest. However tempted, I will not be mocking them here.

Dogma

Excerpt of an interview between two Harvard philosophy professors:

All this religious dogma, it’s like this gigantic separation machine that divides people and causes more death than anything. Especially when the golden rule is supposed to be ‘love thy neighbor’ . . . I got out of religiosity and maintained spirituality.

They’re on the right track, I guess, although that last line is something you usually hear from a clueless Hollywood airhead.

Mayoral Candidates Defend Atheistic NYC “Pay to Pray” Parking Rules

March 22, 2005 | 16 Comments

New York, New York, March 22, 2005
Special to The Raving Atheist

Mayoral hopeful Fernando Ferrer thought he’d score some easy political points by blasting the City’s enforcement of Sunday metered parking rules — but his gamble backfired after his rivals countered with vicious anti-religious arguments defending the policy.

Campaigning at a church earlier this month, Ferrer condemned the practice of ticketing worshippers while they attended church as a “pay to pray” tax. But Mayor Bloomberg quickly labeled the former Bronx Borough President a “pandering Godidiot” and declared that the government was not in the business of “subsidizing superstition.”

“If parking’s going to be free, why not give them free gas as well?” the Mayor asked rhetorically. “After all, they shouldn’t be forced to pay anything to worship the magical sky-daddy. And God doesn’t want them praying naked — let’s make the stores gives them clothes for nothing so they’re not

God Squad Review CXXIV (The Meaning of “Good” Friday)

March 21, 2005 | 37 Comments

A Squad reader wants to know why a day commemorating the suffering, crucifixion and death of Jesus is called “Good” Friday, when the dictionary defines “good” as “loving, kind, favorable and satisfactory.” I was really excited when I read this question, because I thought “Ha, they’re really cornered now, how could they possibly wriggle out of this one, he has them trapped by virtue of the very meanings of a word, from a dictionary no less.” But, foiled again:


There is . . . one way in which we see the term Good Friday as appropriate.

When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden by disobeying God, all humanity was destined to work out their salvation through the sweat of their brows. God could have abandoned us, but chose not to. Christians believe He sent Jesus to live and die for us, to show us how to live, and to prepare a place for us in heaven. Jesus’ act of dying on the cross was actually a good thing. He gave up his life so we could enjoy eternal life.

Up until now I’ve tended to dismiss the Squad’s explanations as a lot of nonsensical crazy-talk, but this one hit a chord with me. Every word of it is perfectly logical. A pair of naked humans cover up their private parts after eating an apple given to them by a talking snake, and a being of infinite intelligence and compassion decides to punish them for that by making all of their ancestors toil for eternity. But then that same being, who is also perfect and unchanging, decides to change everyone’s destiny (a destiny He previously imposed on them), by the most obvious and direct of methods: killing his own son. That’s a “good” answer!

Cardinal Decries “Da Vinci Code” as Cheap, Absurd Lies

March 16, 2005 | 30 Comments

Rome, Italy, March 16, 2005
Special to The Raving Atheist

A top Catholic cardinal has blasted “The Da Vinci Code” as a “gross and absurd” distortion of history and said Catholic bookstores should take the bestseller off their shelves because it is full of “cheap lies.”

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, in an interview with the Milan newspaper Il Giornale, became the highest ranking Italian Churchman to speak out against the book, an international blockbuster that has sold millions of copies.

“(It) aims to discredit the Church and its history through gross and absurd manipulations,” Bertone, the archbishop of the northern Italian city of Genoa and a close friend of Pope John Paul told the paper in its Monday edition.

The central claim of the book, written by American Dan Brown, is that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and had children. The Bible says Jesus never married, was crucified and rose from the dead.

“You can find that book everywhere and the risk is that many people who read it believe that those fairy tales are real,” he said. “I think I have the responsibility to clear things up to unmask the cheap lies contained in books like that.”

“The notion that Christ entered into a stable, monogamous relationship and raised a family is repugnant to every principle held dear by the Church,” said Bertone. “Jesus was a celibate, wild-eyed raving loner, despised and tortured to death his peers.”

Bertone also said that the claims made by the Code defied natural laws, noting that only those “not possessed of their full senses” could deny that Jesus is a resurrected 2,000 year old immaterial spirit who is invisible but simultaneously present everywhere in the universe. “Drink wine and it will turn into Christ’s blood,” Betrone said. “But be careful not to fall for the insane preposterous illogical fictions of madmen.”

God Gives Hope, Fire, Irony to Elderly Widow

God spared an American flag belonging to a 76-year-old Brooklyn woman whose apartment was gutted by a fire sparked by a votive Jesus candle, according to today’s New York Post.

“The flag is still there,” said the woman, Rose Koffman, who has a heart condition and cares for her son, a disabled veteran. “I can’t believe it. It gives me hope.”

The rest of Koffman’s possessions, including her heart medicine, were incinerated in an inferno after a glass candle bearing a picture of Jesus fell to the floor and set her bedroom ablaze.

The Jesus candle was Koffman’s favorite, one which she lit every Sunday an placed in her bedroom window. “I thought I heard a mouse scurrying around in the debris under her bed, and leaned over to investigate,” said the candle. “But then a gust of wind blew me over and my head-flames ignited the carpet.

Backing Up

March 13, 2005 | 19 Comments

Parents are forever backing vehicles over their two-year-old tots in the driveway, and one of God’s favorite miracles is limiting the injuries to the minor or moderate levels. He recently did it for the Palange family here, after dad accidentally ran the SUV over little Bobby’s head. They’re storing the kid’s detached skull pieces under the skin of his abdomen to keep them sterile — but will return them to his brain in two to three weeks and he’s expected to recover fully.

I covered this ground a while back when discussing the God’s kind treatment of Matthew Anthony, accidentally run over four times by mom’s 4,600-pound van. I have nothing to add, other than to note that the second miracle in these situations is always that child protective services are never called in. In any event, as long as people are going to continue to apply the “miracle” label to such mishaps, I’m going to propose a new miracle they can experience in their driveways every day

Dell Like Totally Kicks Muslim Ass for Praying on Job

March 10, 2005 | 35 Comments

Nashville, Tennessee, March 10, 2005
Special to The Raving Atheist

In a decision that a company spokesman called “totally awesome,” Dell Computer yesterday fired 30 Muslim workers for leaving their posts to pray at sunset. “That move was most excellent for the shareholders,” said the Dell guy. “It’s so bogus to pay dudes for watching the sun go down when they’re supposed to be making computers.”

Former Dell forklift driver Abdi H. Nuur complained that the company forced him and 29 other Solmali Muslims to chose between their faith and their employment. ”They told us that we cannot pray at sunset,” Nuur said. ”They told us that we would have to wait for our break.” He said he explained that while some of Islam’s five daily prayer times are somewhat flexible, the sunset prayer is not. Nor does the sun set at the same time every day.

The Dell guy countered that even when he’s stoned, he can think clearly enough to realize that earning some bread to eat is more important than talking to the sun, even if it’s setting. “Man, it’s heinous to starve your kids over crazy shit like that,” he said. “Don’t those dudes know that the thing rises again every day and they can talk to it all they want when they wake up?” The Dell guy added that sometimes he thinks about sneaking off to catch some waves in the middle of the day instead of working, but it would be totally righteous of his boss to fire him for doing that and why couldn’t he just wait until the weekend anyway.

Local Iman Abdishakur Ibrahim disagreed. ”What you have to understand,” Ibrahim said, ”is that Islam is a religion where there is no separation between faith and life. For many Christians, they may go home and pray. But in Islam there are specific times when you must pray. And for Muslims, not to pray is to disobey God. And people feel that if you disobey God, you will go to the hellfire.” The Dell guy said he didn’t know about the Christians but that Ibrahim must be smoking some pretty bad weed if he had such harsh thoughts. He also noted that if the Muslims were cool with cruising around on forklifts and making computers they shouldn’t act all serious about the god stuff.

Another Dell representative, Mark Drury, said that “Dell values diversity in all areas, and that includes religious beliefs.” Drury added that “the company’s practice is to accommodate religious beliefs, so long as the accommodations are reasonable, don’t disrupt business operations and are consistent with our polices on operating a respectful workplace.” The Dell guy said he loved when Mark made up freaky shit like that and then, whoa, look how he totally went ahead and wiped out all that Muslim butt anyway.

God Squad Review CXXIII (Coping with Cancer)

March 8, 2005 | 8 Comments

To their credit, the Squad thinks that consulting a doctor is a good thing to do when diagnosed with colon cancer. They only introduce God into the picture after noting that one needs to “heal emotionally” as well as physically, thus suggesting that the Almighty isn’t really inclined to interfere with those rapidly metastasizing cells on the material level. Rather, God’s role is limited to giving “strength, peace and comfort” — to which they ominously add: “Don’t wait to do something you’d like to do.” Unlike last time, however, they stop short of saying “God gives us life for just as long as it is God’s will for us to have it, and then God takes it back . . . [t]hat’s the deal.”

I wonder if God Himself would give better advice than this. Oh, wait, they answer that too: “If God were writing this column, it would conclude

Carnival of the Godless

Carnival of the Godless.jpg

Welcome to the Sixth edition of the Carnival of the Godless! We’ve got hardcore atheists, hardcore atheists, slightly-less-than hardcore atheists, and god-hating hardcore atheists. The submissions are grouped with priority given to posts by atheists, with a secondary priority given to those who e-mailed me first.

I’ve left the post descriptions pretty much as you wrote them, modifying them for those who demonstrated that they didn’t know how to refer to themselves in the third person (The Raving Atheist certainly does). My comments follow in boldface.

Feel The Awesome Power Of God’s Perfect Love: Brent Rasmussen of Unscrewing the Inscrutable explains why all atheists should satisfy their diaper fetish with midget prostitutes in a Dunkin’ Donuts dumpster twice a week like he does — and also explains why atheists tend to come across as raving atheists to your typical Christian.

I swear I don’t resent Brent for basically stealing my idea for an atheist carnival, but I wish the guy had the courage of his convictions. After he sent me his submission, he pulled the diaper part of the essay from his site — including the following picture of himself indulging in his fantasy:

brentdiaper.jpg

He’s a little more frank about matters at his other site, although he seems to have dumped his midget friends.

Olsen Calls AIDS “God’s Judgment on Gays: Scott Hagaman of
ScottishNous offers a parody, completely fictional, of certain theological attitudes towards plagues.

NOTE: The post is not based of upon Rev. Jerry Falwell’s comments about gays. Furthermore, Scott does not believe that Falwell’s first sexual experience was sex with his mother in an outhouse.

Selling Atheism: Hank Fox explains why it would be a good idea for atheist to become pro-active at exposing more people to godlessness.

I’ve found that atheism is a product that sells itself, particularly after you’ve explained to the buyer that he’s an superstitious, shit-brained drooling baby who needs to realize that the universe has no purpose and our lives are just painful, meaningless exercises in dying.

This is Who I Am (Part 1) or Straight to Hell: Dean of Deanpence discusses why he’s an atheist, how he’s beyond the help of any loving God, and how you can avoid his wrath.

Since Dean asserts that he has “no interest in convincing you to accept [his] position,” be sure not to read his post.

Mission Aborted: No More Mr. Nice Guy tries to see how many people on both sides he can piss off with some musings on the subject of abortion.

From what I read this post is exclusively designed to piss of the pro-life side of the spectrum, myself included. Insofar as the post delves into theological matters, I note that if you’re going to argue that God must be an abortionist because heaven is filled with spontaneously-aborted fetuses, you also have to accept that He loves infanticide because of crib death and other childhood fatalities. Both are crappy theological arguments, but that’s the nature of theology. That being said, I concur with him that the religious right could enhance its credibility on this issue by supporting increased funding of maternal and infant health programs.

Go to Hell: In which Peter Fredson deconstructs the historical, interlocking religious mysteries of “Hell” as a method of conserving power in the priest class, and controlling the little people.

This being the second Carnival I’ve hosted this year, I can affirm that Hell does in fact exist. To paraphrase the atheist Sartre, it’s other bloggers.

Thank God I’m an atheist: Jack Carlson of Jeber’s Jabber muses on the frustrations felt by a confirmed atheist living in a fundamentally Christian country.

A post chock-full of moral perversity, including the notion that “being a decent human being should be its own reward.” However, while I concur with Jack’s position on the meaninglessness of funerals, I would advise him not to complain to the mourners at them about the “awkward social situation” he has been put by being required to “play along with what he consider[s] a farce.” Just send them a link to your post a couple days later, after the grief has subsided.

And aren’t we lucky: Andrea questions methods of raising children in a religious household while maintaining that the family’s religion is the truth. She also argues that organized religions should not allow children as members because they were forced into those particular beliefs and asks why an organized religion would want to accept these nonbelievers as their own.

Hey, I devoted a post to this post in December, in which I reproduced in full four of its seven paragraphs. Either re-read it and get pissed off all over again about her statement that she has “only the highest respect for the faithful and the religions they practice,” or look at her drunken New Year’s Eve pictures.

Egalitarianism: Josh Rosenau of Thoughts from Kansas reminds us that evolutionary biology is radically egalitarian, valuing all life, not just all humanity. “You respect all people, and all life, because every being is a result of an incredible process, extended in time and space — a struggle against oblivion.”

Hmmm. Evolutionary biology isn’t really all that egalitarian when it comes to deciding who gets to eat whom. And respecting all people doesn’t necessarily translate into a respect for all life, particularly not all those insects he claims are becoming “more diverse and numerous” at the expense of primates. Eventually I might be forced off this planet, but I’ll grab a can of Raid before I do..

Intelligent Design and Faerie Rings: Michael Koppelman of LoLife tries, again, to explain why Intelligent Design is the last explanation that should ever be considered by science . . . an explanation that relies on design has effectively abandoned science and can no longer be called science.

Note that he’s not denying the existence of faerie rings, just the faeries.

Beyond the Falange: Nick Barlow of What You Can Get Away With following up on his research on Christian pro-censorship groups, Nick discovers a Catholic group called ‘Tradition, Family and Property’ — a strange ultramontane sect who seem to have a lot in common with the old Spanish Falangists.

I’m sick of sects being tagged as “strange” just because they’re fixated on a sighting of the Mother of God hovering above a tree in Portugal in 1917.

Revelations Peg-Eye Nate of Conservative Cat offers a few.

The examples illustrate a corollary to the problem of evil

Meet the Experts

March 2, 2005 | 56 Comments

What’s the difference between being religious and spiritual? Your puny minds took a crack at this question when I posed it a while back, but now Newsday has assembled an all-star team of theological experts to settle the matter once and for all. And it won’t be like when you ask three physicists what the speed of light is and get four different answers. These fine scholars know their stuff. None of that “let’s look at things through a microscope and just make up some ridiculous shit” that the so called scientists keep pulling on us. We’ll start with the Rev. Alexander Garklavs of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church:

The true aim of religion is to make people spiritual . . . [o]ne observes religious practices to become spiritual. Religious activity is observable and takes place in time. Spiritual life involves the invisible dimension of a person’s soul and is ultimately a timeless quality. Being religious sometimes becomes a matter of meaningless habit, but being spiritual means that one has some self-insight, self-control, empathy and understanding.

Got it? Religion = means, Spirituality = ends. None of that E = mc2 bullshit where you don’t even know what the letters stand for. Imam Faruq A. Wadud, president of the Baitul Jannah Zame Masjid, makes it even clearer:

Spirit is a metaphysical power given to human beings unlike any other animal . . . [b]eing spiritual means being energized with this power . . . [t]herefore, being spiritual means being energized by metaphysical power and being religious means a metaphysical journey toward a certain destination using spiritual energy.

See? Spirituality = means, Religion = ends. It may look like the precise opposite of what Rev. Garklavs said, but only in the way that E=mc2 is the opposite of mc2 = E. And again, it’s not in some secret letter code. As orthodox Rabbi Yackov Saacks elaborates:

[T]he worship of any deity of any kind is spiritual. The difference between all religions is their respective definition of what is “godly” or “pure” spirituality and “impure” spirituality. From the perspective of Judaism, idol worship is a spiritual worship which is anathema to our religion, as Judaism is strictly a monotheistic religion. Spirituality refers to any sense of meaning and significance beyond what can be apprehended by the five senses. Religion involves a belief in a higher power and some set of laws or rituals.

So spirituality is the enemy of religion, because it does not require belief in a higher power or rituals. Unless you consider non-monotheistic idols to be higher powers, and worshipping them to be a ritual. Sister Karen Kaelin sums it all up:

My religion, with its beliefs, rituals and moral code, is a rich reservoir from which my spirituality is drawn. Catholicism teaches me that God is love, that God is a communion of three persons, whose loving self-gift is constantly flowing into all of creation, actively working to bring all into oneness with God. My spirituality, nurtured by my prayer and contemplation, is expressed when I love the person before me with this same self-gifting, nonjudging, inclusive love that I have experienced from God. We are all spiritual beings by nature; some of us are at home within a religion.

Sister Karen thus confirms that spirituality both (1) comes out of religion and (2) develops without religion, the important point again being that there is only one God because 3 = 1. Try to get that kind of straight answer out of a mathematician!

Heh

Yesterday I critiqued the God Squad’s inane answer to a reader’s question about the problem of evil and free will. To my great astonishment, last night I discovered that the question had been submitted to their nationally syndicated column by none other than my friend Under No Circumstances — the fellow blogging biomedical grad student/potential neuroscience Ph.D candidate who co-interviewed Sam Harris with me last year. Posing as “C” — the nefarious, atheistic third letter of the alphabet — she e-mailed them the query at the end of January.

In a post I missed, UNC reproduced the full text of the question in her blog at the time she sent it to the Squad. Yesterday she dissected their response. As she notes, it’s interesting to consider arguments they edited out of her question to suit their agenda. You might also compare my analysis to hers, keeping in mind I had no knowledge of “C’s” identity when I wrote my review. GMTA!

The tentacles of atheism are slowly wrapping around the MSM. One day, all of the Squad’s mail will come from godless secret agents. Keep those questions coming!
