I saw a second of it with the host saying they were moving on to the 'final Revelation' part of the game and a pastor was saying something about a line and something ten minuted later about the 'sisters of Miriam' and every was cheerng. I think the 'sisters of Miriam' are either mythological or legendary figures who are of no importance now and this was when there were three young black women with their hands on the chest while he was saying this. Weird stuff. But I wonder how many of the…Continue
This one waited in the wings for me at least 20 years, but it took a gift from a well meaning friend to make it into an issue. This past December a friend of my wife gave her a Christmas gift in the form of a plaque which ended with the word’s “God Bless the Barbera’s.”
It had some other ridiculous schlock…Continue

I saw a new video about Pat Robertson stirring outrage but I didn't watch it as I'm not interested in his rhetoric.

LOL, The YouTube clip referenced by this Patheos blog is actually funny.
Yet it is also a little sad in that kids can be so dumbed down by propaganda.
These twits in this video are evidently dumber than Drongo's Droppings.
They are also Young Earth Creationists, which makes them proper Drongo Droppings.…Continue
Yes, the Catholic church threatened the Prime Minister of Ireland, Enda Kenny with excommunication if he instigates the abortion reform, where women will be allowed an abortion if it is deemed harmful to the woman's wellbeing.
His response was: “Everybody’s entitled to their opinion here but as explained to the Cardinal and members of the church my book is the constitution and the constitution is determined by the people. That’s the people’s book. We live in a Republic and I have a…Continue

While I am a big fan of Court T.V. (Judge Judy is my favorite! Followed by Peoples Court). I occasionally get a yen for something more substantial. To the magical land of Youtube and I found this great 2 hour debate with Stephen Fry, Christopher Hitchens, and a Catholic Priest and a woman involved with the Catholic Church. It was polite, smart, with some smatterings of humor and of course there was the Q&A session at the end.
It's two hours long, but it's a great watch.…
I would like to compile a list of quotes from overrated religious leaders that highlight their ignorance and hateful theologies, any help?…Continue
I was intrigued by this article concerning the Freedom From Religion Foundation stopping prayers at a school graduation and the parents taking the graduation into the church to allow prayers.
They are claiming that it is an unfair attack on the school, even though the school's graduation with prayers would be unconstitutional.
If you listen to the public broadcast debate, you will notice that the atheist representative…Continue
When it comes to atheist/agnostic groups, I believe a lot of them become wrapped up in a great debate with the theists. But what is accomplished in these debates? Very rarely is a theist convinced to see things from another perspective. These people are already fixed in their beliefs, to a point where they want to get into debates with the other side.
Little is accomplished with these debates, in my opinion. I am agnostic, and I feel there is no need to push my…Continue
I m sick and tired of those otherwise intelligent, "educated" and a bit rational theists who try to distort their already superficial understanding of science and reason to suit to their hard held religious believes so that their is less confusion in their lives. And worse so, they shout this distortion out and spread their dangerous idea and this dangerous habit. So I decided to do something to give them the taste of their own medicine (not that this is gonna work!). Since atheists do allow…Continue
This post is maybe a bit more thought out than my last one:
There have been a few occasions of late when i was in a business and the music selected by the staff was a bit abrasive. Now, me not liking the music playing over the speakers at a business is not an uncommon occurrence. I live in rural Ontario and "country" seems to be the music of choice for most stores. I am not a big country fan. Some places will go with pop or soft rock, which maybe aren't my faves either, but…Continue
I posted this after some theists inferred that us atheists are afraid.
Afraid of what, I haven't the foggiest notion of what we can be afraid of, maybe I'm a little afraid of heights, but that has nothing to do with my atheism, many Christians are also afraid of heights. So I posted this in reply:
"While on the subject of those who are afraid of the TRUTH!
I nor my fellow atheists…
I signed up for Dish Network (it's a satellite TV company) here in Yuma AZ. The new customer package was just $19.99/month and included extended Movie stations like HBO, Starz etc and entailed about 200 stations. After 3 months, "New Customer Promotions" ended & if I continued with Dish, I was forced to choose continuing that Extensive Package *at normal prices* (very co$$tly!) or choose another 'Package'. I chose the Budget Package which has about 50 stations and now costs me $40/month.…Continue
I came out as an Atheist around two years ago. I was very lucky that I didn't lose anything by coming out, I still have all my friends and family. I know that it confused some of my friends, and I have no idea what my family really thinks about it as we have an unannounced agreement that we just don't discuss religion. So I carried on, watching Atheist Experience, The Thinking Atheist, and posting the occasional Facebook posts about some of the skeletons in Christanitys closet, so I should…Continue
Hello, forgive my fumbling. I am so not a blogger, but i figured now is as good a time as any to begin. I have no idea if anyone will read this, but i am very used to talking to myself! I really don't have much to say at this time so i am just kind of going off the cuff.
I am a fairly new non-believer, atheist, Bright or whatever handle you want to use, and i have been recently trying to connect with people who think and feel the way i do. I have been struggling with my…Continue
