We live in a world where the powerful deceive us. We know they lie, they know we know they lie, they don’t care. We say we care, but we do nothing. And nothing ever changes. It’s normal. Welcome to the post-truth world.

Question That Contains Assumptions: Why are so many atheists unwilling to accept that science is just as fallible as they feel that the Bible is?

Q & A | Marquez Comelab | 03 Sep 15 | Update: 18 Mar 16 | Full View
It is your misunderstanding of what Science is that is keeping you stuck. Atheists like myself understand that Science is fallible. Scientists themselves understand that Science is fallible. That is why they keep experimenting and experimenting. They're always arguing and disputing previous theories to keep testing that previous studies came up with correct conclusions. So when you see that, that is a sign that there is healthy science going on.

Questioning The National School Chaplaincy Program

Article | Marquez Comelab | 01 Jan 06 | Update: 18 Mar 16 | Full View
There is a very important issue ‘invading' our schools at the moment: The National School Chaplaincy Program. It is important because it borders the separation between Church and State. Every parent who has a child in school will certainly have heard, or will hear, of it. In this article, I am going to briefly introduce the nature of this program and mention some numbers to illustrate the type of investment that we, as tax payers, have provided to the program. Thereafter, we will discuss whether this Program should continue or not.

Protesting For Australia On Australia Day

Article | Marquez Comelab | 01 Jan 06 | Update: 18 Mar 16 | Full View
When I was thirteen years of age, my family migrated to Australia. I liked the fact that Australia was secular. Religion seemed to play little role in politics and in people's lives in general. In the years that followed, Australia continued to remain secular and as far as I was aware, religion did not play a major part in politics. I was always confident that other people's beliefs would never affect me, confident that religion will continue to remain separate from the laws of the land that ruled me and so many Australians. Now, I am no longer sure. Overseas, there has been a worrying trend…

Lecture Video: Morality Does Not Come From Religion

Article | Marquez Comelab | 01 Jan 06 | Update: 18 Mar 16 | Full View
It has always been proposed by the religious that without religion, humanity will succumb to chaos and destruction. In a lecture organised by The Atheist Society in the Unitarian Church in Melbourne on the 8th of March 2011, I argued that religion is taking undue credit for something that is naturally human. To argue my point, I take us back to envision ancient societies, discussing the Golden Rule, and three universal truths of human nature that allow, force and pressure us to behave. These three universal truths predispose human beings to be moral. Watch the video >>

In this article, Marquez Comelab, author of The Tyranny Of God, asks who really needs protection from whom? This is not about protecting people from other people. This is about taking away our right to think for ourselves and to speak our minds. Article was published in the International Humanist News (UK), May 2009 Edition.

The Power Of Small Consistent Returns

Article | Marquez Comelab | 01 Jan 06 | Update: 18 Mar 16 | Full View
People have preconceived misconceptions about trading, investing and money in general. This is an entire topic on its own but this week, I set my focus on addressing the type of returns one can expect to achieve by trading the markets. Hopefully, I can help some people understand the power of small consistent returns over time. For many, a great rate of return means multiplying your money at least ten times instantly.
