Okay, for all the atheists out there, here is a different video which refutes the power of prayer. Now I am totally confused as to whether prayer works or not…

Echoing Dawkins – Don’t Call Us Fundamentalists Thursday, July 26, 2007Posted by henry000 in anti-fundamentalism, atheism, Bible, Chinese, Christianity, Dawkins, faith, fundamentalism, God, Islam, Judaism, Koran, rationality, reason, religion, Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion.
Richard Dawkins has lately written an article titled “How dare you call me a fundamentalist” as a response to some of the main criticisms he received for his controversial bestseller The God Delusion. Here I will add my own arguments to what Dawkins has already said, because when rational people criticise god and putting religion in perspective, they get unfairly judged, and this we must address.
The criticisms made on Dawkins are in bold.
I’m an atheist, but I wish to dissociate myself from your shrill, strident, intemperate, intolerant, ranting language.
How you feel about the tone and language of the book is entirely up to you. Some might find it clear and concise. I find it to be passionate and blunt, and I think blunt is a much better and objective description of the tone and language of the book.
Take the first chapter for example. The one line where I can find people might find it offending is this line:
The idea of a personal God is quite alien to me and seems even naive.
Now seriously, how shrill and intolerant is this? Try replacing the words “a personal God” with something else say “United Nations” or “the Live Aid concert”. Does it make a difference?
I offer this advice to people who feel the book is arrogant and condescending: read it again (or at least some of it), and you might come to feel differently about it as the first time might come as a shock.
You can’t criticise religion without detailed study of learned books on theology.
The book is not ignorant on theology and various aspects of religion – see Dawkins’ own explanation – this alone should settle this particular criticism. I would add that you need not to be a scholar to highlight the obvious problems of religion, such as the blind faiths people have in ancient scriptures that drive them to happily hurt and kill others for no other reason than religion. There is a difference between criticising something while being completely ignorant (such as simple-minded creationists), and being knowledgeable enough.
Abide By The 10 Commandments Saturday, July 14, 2007Posted by henry000 in Australia, Bible, Christianity, comic, funny, humor, humour, rationality, reason, religion, Ten Commandments.
I stole this cute clever comic from the Rationalist Society of Australia website.
Creation Museum Video Wednesday, July 4, 2007Posted by henry000 in anti-evolution, Bible, creation museum, creationism, evolution, fundamentalism, God, museums, rationality, religion, science, video.
Here is a creation museum video clip. It is not a virtual tour, nor does it contain lots of shots of the inside of the museum; rather it is a refutation on the concept of “super evolution” presented by the museum.
Warning – the background music might irrate you. 🙂
UK Flooding: Judgement from God Tuesday, July 3, 2007Posted by henry000 in anti-fundamentalism, Asian Tsunami 2004, Bible, Christianity, church, Church of England, flood, fundamentalism, gay marriage, God, homosexuality, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, United Kingdom.

According to the senior bishops of Church of England, the recent flooding in the UK is a punishment from God because our society and government have become morally corrupt. One particular bishop says that the recent introduction of pro-gay legislation has prompt God to flood parts of the UK.
Says one bishop:
“This is a strong and definite judgment because the world has been arrogant in going its own way,”… “We are reaping the consequences of our moral degradation, as well as the environmental damage that we have caused.”
He blames the government in particular:

Pics of the Creation Museum Wednesday, June 20, 2007Posted by henry000 in anti-evolution, Bible, Christianity, creation museum, creationism, evolution, fundamentalism, God, human evolution, museums, photos, pics, rationality, religion.
If you ever wondered what the new $US27 million dollar Creation Museum looks like inside, then check this out – apparently a couple of young atheists have visited the museum and took quite a number of photos.
You can’t help but notice the number of biblical references in the museum. I know I am stating the obvious here – the museum is simply a plain Christian advertisement without any scientific credentials. And what’s more disturbing is that the number of kids there were – even one child is one too many.
Post the photos, spread the words so that less people go there.
Here are some samples from the photo album.

The Animation of The Atheist Delusion 2: Decluded Mailbag Thursday, May 10, 2007Posted by henry000 in animation, anti-fundamentalism, atheism, Bible, Christianity, Ed Current, faith, fundamentalism, funny, God, humour, parody, rationality, religion, sarcasm, science.
The creative Ed Current has done it again with a follow-up animation to his previous popular animation The Atheist Delusion. This time it is called “Atheist Delusion 2: Deluded Mailbag”, in which the faithful Christian guy answers some of the common (and deluded) atheist questions.
Take a look at the witty and hilarious animation!
