My First Blog

Hello. This is Doug Stewart, the Godless Evangelist, Spreading the Word of Reason.

I differ from most atheists in that I’m in favor of atheist proselytizing. I assume this puts me somewhere to the more extreme than Richard Dawkins. The main objection I get from my fellow atheists is that religion’s okay, as long as it doesn’t “interfere”. Well, it’s ALWAYS going to interfere. I’m not just talking about the occasional airplane flying into a building or the murder of an abortion doctor. I’m talking about the average pious moderate that keeps pretty much quiet about their beliefs and then every four years votes for the most religiously flamboyant political candidate because “god will know the way”. Ergo, eight years of arguably the worst president in American history, and, un-arguably, the worst vice presidential candidate in American history.

Lastly, this is not a political blog in that any subjective issues will be discussed. Subjects such as the economy, the size of government, and even global warming (that unfortunately is almost entirely a political discussion now), are as individual as say, one’s opinions on sport or how beautiful one’s kids are. Therefore, it’s a waste of time.

Let the journey begin.

  1. I appreciate your candor. See, a person who proselytizes does so because they have a belief that they believe is true where it regards God. Thus, this is evidence that atheism is a religion. I think Richard Dawkins does a tremendous amount of proselytizing and usually will not allow a counter argument. I hope you are open to hearing the other side.
