Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Uses Bible to Justify Land Theft The root cause of the Jewish state of Israel's illegal, cruel and expanding occupation of Palestinian land is the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, recently made this very clear. The only way to combat this religious myth is through reason.

A Seven-year-old and a Seventeen-year-old Teach Us Why Reason Must Prevail Over "Revelation" Seven-year-old Joshua "JJ" Vallow and 17-year-old Rylee Ryan were murdered based on the belief of the parents in Divine revelation. They would still be alive if their parents had realized that God gave the innate reason and not religion. Reason must prevail over "revelation" and religion/superstition.

Trump, Pelosi and Biden's Battle of the Bible! One thing Trump, Pelosi and Biden all have in common is the promotion of the religious violence promoting and ungodly Bible. This is something to be concerned about in a nuclear age.

The Iranian government fears her so much, they refuse to temporarily release her from prison during the coronavirus pandemic. She is not alone, as other women who resist have made their way to North America.

Will the Coronavirus Start the Beginning of the End of the "Revealed" Religions? People looking at the response of the "revealed" religions to the coronavirus pandemic can't help but have strong doubts as to the claims made by the "revealed" religions regarding answered prayers, faith healing, etc. This is an opportunity for Deists, and for all freethinkers, to empower people to break free of the "revealed" religions by letting them know God gave them reason, not religion.

Coronavirus Exposes the False Advertising of Christianity Instead of being on the defense hoping Christian churches will refrain from holding large public church meetings, which causes the spread of the deadly coronavirus, we need to help the people currently under their influence to break free of the harmful false advertising of Christian faith healing. False advertising is not allowed in any venue with the exception of religion. This needs to end.

A Christian Church is Attacked for Following the Bible Regarding Coronavirus Why should anyone be surprised or angered by Christians taking action on their Bible-based beliefs and superstitions? That's what happened when a Christian church ignored calls for people not to gather in large groups due to the coronavirus.

Protect Children From Deadly Religious Superstitions With Reason and Deism In the last six months at least four eight-day old baby boys in New York City have been infected with herpes because the rabbis/mohels who circumcised them used their mouth to suck blood from the circumcision wound. This religious crime against children, and all harm caused by all the "revealed" religions, can be stopped with innate God-given reason and Deism.

Why "Revealed" Religions Are Hypocritical When They Oppose Hate and Fear It's amazing to see the hypocrisy of religions that have hate, fear and violence as the bedrock of the "holy" books oppose hate, fear and violence. It's time for truth in advertising for the "revealed" religions!

The Power of Thomas Paine Thomas Paine is too often overlooked. Without Paine the American Revolution would not have happened. His Common Sense got people off the fence, and The Crisis kept them going when things went from bad to worse. His Deism caused many people to hate him. However, his Deism is the key to countering the theocrats in the religious right.

Attention Nones: You Have a Home in Deism The number of people in the US who are classified as religious "nones" is now at least equal to the number of Catholics and to the number of Christian evangelicals. Contrary to popular assumption, the vast majority of these people are not Atheists, as they are rejecting religion, not belief in God/The Supreme Intelligence. Belief in God plus rejection of religion equals Deism.

Something Real to Celebrate December 25th Deists and all freethinkers often feel left out during the Christmas season. We don't buy the Jesus story. Thankfully we have something very real to celebrate that happened on December 25, 1776, the Battle of Trenton. This is the battle that saved the American Revolution from failing, and which allows us today to have, to a large degree, freedom of speech, etc.

Religious Violence Erupts in Jersey City, New Jersey Killing Six People The religious violence based attack by Black Hebrew Israelites against Jews in a kosher grocery store in New Jersey makes clear the destructive power of man-made "revealed" religions.

Nancy Pelosi Spews Catholic Propaganda Nancy Pelosi, perhaps in an effort to win over Christians who vote for Trump and Republicans, claimed she doesn't hate anyone because she is a Catholic. This is pure nonsense, as anyone familiar with Catholicism and the Bible would know. As the Deist Thomas Paine pointed out in The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition, nonsense needs to be treated as nonsense.

Deism in the Struggle Between Humanity and Religion Humanity cannot be found in the "revealed" religions due to their portrayal of God as being cruel, jealous and genocidal, as well as because of their ambiguity. Reason-based Deism can correct this problem.

Deism Can Put an End to Religious Misogyny Misogyny is morally wrong. It is also promoted by all of the man-made Abrahamic "revealed" religions. Recently a woman in Jordan, an Islamic nation, was beaten and had her eyes gouged out by her husband. The Quran claims God commanded Muslim men to beat/scourge women who they fear may become rebellious towards them. Deism can put an end to these harmful religious teachings, if given the chance.
