Anti-theism but not Anti-theist

I am sure there are plenty who don't see a distinction between Anti-theism & Anti-theist. I do however for the purpose of this article choose to make a distinction as I personally do cringe when I see anti-theist in a twitter bio because it is an aggressive sounding word. Firstly let me say, I am human like anyone else. I am far from perfect and certainly do slip up from time to time. For...

Australia needs to lift it’s game on LGBTQI

I saw on my twitter feed this morning that Columbia has legalised same sex marriage. Fabulous! The more countries that do the better. Every country should fight for equality for it's people. That list of countries is growing slowly with The Netherlands heading the list as they so regularly do. The list below was obtained from the Time website. The Netherlands (2000) Belgium (2003) Canada (2005)...

Why I no longer use the label feminist when I am one…

Labels are important. I am no way saying they are not. When I say I no longer use the label of feminist, I mean I don't use it on social media. It doesn't mean I don't consider myself a feminist. I absolutely do. I am a second wave, classical feminist. I am a woman hear me roar! Feminism: The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes. ~Oxford Dictionary Some of you...

Response to ‘Why I rejected Evolution’

I came across a blog post today on twitter which moved me to respond. The post is written by David Heycock on his personal blog. He starts off by making disparaging comments about the behavior of atheists on twitter, which I find amusing because many atheist do their best to be courteous, and just as many theists do their best to be profane and abusive. I have lost count of the amount of times I...

Just a theory

As an atheist who discusses religion and science on twitter, it isn't long before you come across the creationist argument that evolution is just a theory. What these creationists don't seem to realise is that a scientific theory is vastly different from a common language theory. The oxford dictionary has several definitions of theory: A supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain...

Welcome to Pink Heretic!

Pink Heretic was born out of a need to fight bigotry, ignorance and religious doctrine through reason and science. I am an Aussie egalitarian who also happens to be atheist, agnostic, humanist, rational feminist, science loving, a skeptic, passionate about human rights and making the world a better place.

Feel free to take a look around and snag some memes from the gallery for your own use. I hope you enjoy my articles and share them on your favourite social media.

Pink Heretic

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

The Damage of Faith

The Damage of Faith

In my time participating in various social media as an active atheist, I have come across many great people who are atheists, but also wonderful theists who are going through the painful process of honestly questioning their beliefs. As someone who was raised without...

Why I block trolls

Anyone who has spent any time on twitter, and many other forms of social media, will know that trolls have become common place. How often you see them depends largely on how much and on what topics you interact and probably how much of a public profile you have as...
