January 24, 2002Added "Growing Need For The Spread Of Secular Reason" by randau to the Agora section of the Kiosk.
The detriment and burdens to which religion has subjected society and the progress of civilization have long since exceeded an acceptable level of secular tolerance. And, now we have Fundamental Islamic Terrorism that threatens western civilization and wants to turn the world into a Theocratic Autocracy.
January 22, 2002Added "Liberty vs. Tyranny" by Jan Brazill to the Agora section of the Kiosk.
What would we think of a society where a number of citizens decide to enslave their fellow-citizens, using the techniques of propaganda? Not only does their brain-washing result in manipulating their targets into a subservient role, but it succeeds in making them accept that role gladly, and even become enforcers of their own servitude.Added "Post Hoc Miracles" by Bruce Monson to the Agora section of the Kiosk.
If a skyscraper collapses from an earthquake (or terrorist attack), killing thousands under millions of tons of concrete and steel, but a few people are rescued from isolated pockets within the rubble (through human effort, mind you), it's labeled "a miracle from Jesus" even though it's a statistical probability that a few people will be alive.

Pat Robertson pushes U.S. Congressional House Bill allowing churches to endorse political candidates
January 06, 2002Added "The Miracles" by Mark Ivan Vuletic to the Agora section of the Kiosk.
Quasi-poetical reaction to yet more callous fundamentalist "evidence" of God's supreme love on September 11.
January 03, 2002Added "A Peculiar Publication" by Brandon Seger to the Agora section of the Kiosk.
A short story about a nonreligious high school student who submits an editorial article to the school newspaper in hopes to gain recognition for nonbelievers. What follows is a mixed reaction from students and teachers alike.
January 01, 2002Added "The Koran Predicted the Speed of Light? Not really." by Richard Carrier to the Features section of the Kiosk.
Yet another bogus claim about the Koran (this time, it predicted the speed of light!). The claim is analysed and debunked.
