How Religion Has Ruined Morality

Celebrate Death I’m standing under a hideous giant cross that sits atop Mount Royal in Montreal, Quebec. In the death cult that is Christianity, crosses symbolize the ancient torture device whereby God had himself killed (temporarily) in order to absolve mankind of the sin he was born into.

What Would It Take To Convince Me?

Hell Is Hot A one-woman religious march in Seminole, Oklahoma, used this sign, assuring viewers that “Hell Is Hot”, accompanied by stick-figure drawings of people burning in Hell. (Copyright © 2003 by Wil C. Fry.) A question often posed to atheists is: “What would it take to convince you God is real?” It’s asked so[…]

A Missed Crossroads In 1992

“I sense an important cross road quickly approaching, and I know of what choices it consists… My decisions here will seemingly determine my course hereafter… When I pace my floor, and call His name, speaking to Him, I don’t feel as if I’m being heard. And even if I am I don’t feel like I’m[…]

Survey Results: Surprising?

Thank you to everyone who participated in my short, non-scientific survey. Here are the results, which surprised me somewhat — the entire reason I conducted the survey was to either support or correct my assumptions about those who follow me on social media. I asked five simple questions relating to the underlying perspectives through which[…]

A Christian’s 10 Questions

A student at a small Bible college asked the following “10” questions, with the aim of “being able to have open and honest conversations with people from different religions or with no religion at all.” Some of my readers know all of the following about me, but others may not, so I’m giving my answers[…]

American Christians Confused About Own Doctrines?

Apostles’ Creed (from Wikipedia) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the[…]

Six ‘Facts’ About Atheists, As Slightly Misreported

In an undated article on Christianity Today, writer Carey Lodge lists “six facts about atheism in the U.S.”, citing a recent Pew Research report. I noted some interesting twists and omissions in Lodge’s article. Note: The Pew report contains “7 Facts”, and lists them in a different order than Lodge did. I will use Lodge’s[…]

Why Are ‘Nones’ On The Rise In The U.S.?

Empty church pews (Copyright © 2011 by Wil C. Fry.) Results of a new major study from Pew have been much-reported lately. The massive-in-scope survey shows that Christianity is on the decline in the U.S., while the unaffiliated (“nones”) have grown by leaps and bounds. Some publications tried to interpret the findings, some lamenting the[…]

Did you hear the one about the two babies in the womb? I’m not sure who wrote it — things like this get passed around social media without attribution, which is probably one of the worst things about social media. Anyway, in shortened form, it goes like this: “Two babies were in a mother’s womb.[…]

You can read more about it on my website, a special section I’ve created to tell my story. It took 25 years for me to get here, and a year to write it all down.   Screenshot of my web page announcing my atheism (Copyright © 2015 by Wil C. Fry. Some rights reserved.)  

The Problem With ‘Faith vs. Evidence’

Baby gorilla, Oklahoma City, Okla. (Copyright © 2006 by Wil C. Fry.) The difference between a Creationist and an Evolutionist is that one accepts on faith the words found in a very old book while the other accepts only hard scientific evidence. Right? That’s that narrative I see when browsing writings by those who fall[…]
