Do do That Voodoo...

Shocked to see people on a facebook account I follow still believe in hexes and curses. Grown adults! Nothing sadder than gullible adults who really oughta know better. If they replaced that gullibility with just an ounce of skepticism, they'd be all the better for it. Of course there is no shortage of charlatans out there ready to sell you potions and amulets to remove whatever spell you might be under. Too bad there is no antidote for stupidity.See More

Halfway there...

People who abandon organized religion but still believe in a creator/god, are what I call "halfway there." At least they're not out to hurt anyone with their beliefs, or impose their doctrine on anyone else. You hear a lot of people say, "I'm not religious, but I'm spiritual." A lot of time, these "spiritual" people will spend countless hours and money going from one new age fad to the next, looking for enlightenment or a deeper connection to god. This makes me sad, because I was once the same…See More

James Yount commented on Eric Gilnett's blog post Enemies of god
"'god' does more harm than lucifer in the bible. In fact, according to the book of Job the devil has to ask permission from god to actively harm Job. So god not only creates evil, but condones it."

Peace & Satan

Posted on May 14, 2012 at 7:55am 2 Comments

Just had a flash of memory of being a kid and drawing peace symbols on everything and being scolded because it was a "broken cross" and therefore satanic. Now I see just how incongruous peace and christianity really truly are. Christians want war and always have, so its no wonder the peace sign would be an annoyance to them, even if subconsciously. I grew up in the days when satanic cults were all over the news and people thought you could hear messages from satan if you played certain rock…

Arguing with christians

Posted on May 11, 2012 at 11:00am 6 Comments

I spent much of the morning yesterday, debating christians about gay marriage, on facebook. Some of the arguments were 'god made marriage to be between a man and a woman,' 'men parts were made to fit into women parts,' and the age old favorite 'if we open the door to gay marriage, then we open the door to people who wanna marry children, animals, multiple partners, etc.'  People truly are living in a religious bubble which cannot be penetrated by logic and reason. More than anything it made…
