The Atheologist

Theology is the study of theism; Atheology is the study of atheism. I am The Atheologist. Why don’t Atheists embrace religion when the vast majority of humans do? Why are Atheists regarded by most of society as thugs, rabble, vermin and generally naughty people. The Atheologist will attempt to seek out the true answers to these and many more questions by using logical assumptions, interviews with people of all faiths and really, really good research. The Atheologist wants to know.

    Is The New York Transit Strike Part Of The War On Christmas?

    The 2005 New York City transit strike is in its second day. Why did Local 100 of the TWU and the MTA choose to shut down the New York City transit system just 5 days before Christmas? Was it just a coincidence or is there more to it as the Atheologist is hearing? Bill O’Reilly, as usual had something to say about it:

    This is way more than a coincidence, it is just a continuation of the war on Christmas. Can't anyone else see that? Am I the only sane, honest and unbiased person on this planet? The secularists are taking over the country and everyone is just letting them do it. Did you see how the Fox news website page was hijacked from right under the nose of the most sane, most honest and most unbiased news organization in the world? If they could do that to us, of course they would easily be able to orchestrate the shutting down of New York City, in order to halt all Christmas celebrations. I said Christmas not holidays, Christmas, Christmas, Christmas! There, I said Christmas at least 5 times and holidays only once, ok twice. I see another boycott coming. Do you hear that New York, you secular, liberal, most un-Christian like, ACLU harboring, most un-American of our large cities. You will be boycotted; I just have to work out the details.
    Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson, had this to say:

    Of course it's part of the war! I have personally seen our Lord’s list of things to do, and U.S. cities to destroy, in a holy vision I had while I was sleeping. New Orleans was at the top of the list, it had been crossed off already, (God bless Katrina), New York had been second but was bumped to third by that heathen town of Dover Pennsylvania, who replaced their school board, which simply wanted to teach the true sciences of Intelligent Design and Creationism in their public schools. New York will have to wait while the good Lord inflicts some mighty smiting on them. That reminds me of another Pennsylvania town, the town of Apollo, PA which our creator flooded twice, once in 1907 and again in 1936 for having the foolhardiness of naming their town after another god, I guess they never read the first commandment, (you know, about having no other gods before him), our Lord is a jealous god. But getting back to the transit strike, since New Yorkers are unable to finish their Christmas shopping, they can send their spare cash somewhere where it will do the most good - to the 700 Club , and I’ll see to it that our good Lord hears about it and maybe will show some mercy to those who donate generously to our side in this war.

    The Atheologist is reminded of a musical question that he often hears, " War! huh-yeah, What is it good for?" and the answer, " Absolutely nothing, Uh-huh", well I guess that's not true for some people.

    I think most people watch Bill O Reilly for entertainment value. He does not have any credibility. I do believe in God but at the same I absolutely support the court ruling in Dover PA. I think most people understand that Religion and Science are two different elements of out life and we don't have enough to relate them. Hence till then we should not hinder the progress of either. I think religion promotes societal development and as an Athiest you can disregard the supernatural element but the original framework is definitely helpful for the improvement of our society.

    There is some evidence that the opposite is true, look here.
