This afternoon I was contacted by Andrea from Lakewood Church. The Houston Megachurch that Olsteen leads. When I asked her about the cost of the ticket. She explained that it covered the cost of paying
for the Scottrade Center employees and various things such as that. I tried to express my view that if this is a message that is good for everyone to hear that provision should be made for making the event
free. Andrea explained that they used to have free attendance at these events…

Today a new type of cancer detection was annouced by several news sources - one that is sensetive enough to detect one cancer cell, out of bilions. The device is the size of a credit card and is a fairly simple design which could be easily and cheaply mass-produced, but will assuredly be an expensive test for quite some time. The reason is greed and egotism: evolutionary 'tailbones' which should be eliminated from our species.
Humans have entered an era of information…Continue
It seems that the precious establishment of religion has pulled another trick on the rest of us tax payers. Back on 2007 a law was passed to let employees of churches have a special category of retirement plans.
Because their work is so much more important than everyone else work.
Joel Olsteen and his Flight Attendant beating wife Victoria bring their brand of religion to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. They will be here Jan 7th for the “A
Night of Hope” concert or whatever they call it. But you better be
prepared for a day or two of work because the tickets are available,
as of now, on TicketMaster for $22.70. However if you have the promo
code you can save the $7.50 fee and pay just $15.00 to get in to…

I'm a fiction writer and I attack god and religion in my novels. That's not the main thrust of my sci-fi and horror novels, but it's a constant in all my books (3 1/2 so far). I'm still unpublished but hope that will change this year. So, here is my question.
I wrote a sci-fi novel that takes place about 50 years in the future. One of the characters in the book is the pope of that era. What name should I use for him? Ideally, it would be a name that religious folks see as possible for…Continue
There seem to be a contingent of thinkers out there who think that "the answers to life, the universe and everything" are the philosophies of Ayn Rand in "Atlas Shrugged." It somehow seems fitting that this may be the case since, when asked to cut some of her novel she replied, "Would you cut the Bible?"
Calling a philosophy "Objectivism" confuses me. No one is perfectly objective and the first hurdle to being objective is realizing that no one is truly…Continue
this is a copy/paste of something I sent to one of the folks here who were kind enough to welcome me here.
Kind of curious so if you have some info please enlighten me. I have no problem accepting the reality of atheism and frankly getting into the fine points of biblical fallacy has no attraction for me at all. I have
no desire to debate Christians but am very interested in what do we as a
group do to enlighten younger people to think about it? Is there…
If you enjoy imaginative writing with rhythm, allegories, prose poems, and assorted fictional fusions, you might enjoy my fully illustrated collection, available at amazon. Aside from the 5 star customer reviews, writers have said:

Not really anything atheist per se about this other than people will say things like, "Thank God no one died." But I though you all would like to see some local pictures.
