Combating Religious Prejudice

http://centersolid.blogspot.com/2011/11/combating-religious-prejudice.htmlMost of us are aware, when people are in a group setting, they generally "behave" in a way conducive to positive behavior.  People tend not to take things from others if they know they are being watched.  Religious people, generally speaking, believe that their actions are under constant scrutiny even in the absence of other people.…See More

Is Atheism A Choice?

I wrote an article last month posing the question: Can Christians and Atheists Find Common Ground? In exploring that question with both believers and nonbelievers, I came away a bit discouraged. The answer appeared to be "as long as."In that article, I made the following statement:"Apostates such as myself, meaning I once was a theist and have chosen to reject a belief in a deity, often are met with a certain mixture of sadness, incredulousness, and anger for rejecting God and Christ."A reader…See More

The Best Of Times, The End Of Times

Thessalonians 4:16 – 17Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.  Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass…See More

Apparently There Are Atheists in Foxholes

Despite the old saying “there are no atheists in foxholes” apparently those that hold to that point of view haven’t kept up with the sea change in religious thought occurring in the military.  The Military Leadership Diversity Commission found “a gradual trend in the United States toward greater percentages of people claiming no religious affiliation, a phenomenon reflected in ARIS [American Religious Identification Survey].”The Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute survey found that…See More
