Religion and the Brutal 'Morality' of God

There are those who believe scripture is the true source of morals or rules for living and claim to base their morality literally on the Bible. This is consistent with the religious accusation that a materialistic view of the mind is inherently amoral and that religious conceptions are to be favored because they are inherently more humane. As an example of 'Biblical morality', consider two stories taken literally from the Bible.

The first is an excerpt from Carl Sagan's book The Demon…

California Boy found.....

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2011/02/01/exp.NG.missingboyfound.hln?hpt=T2

 

     Unfortunately, not alive.  I'm completely outraged over this murder and the mother involved...and with Nancy Grace for telling this 'mother' "all of America is behind you".  Well, no I'm not.  I feel terrible for the little boy and the agonizing death he must have…

Mondo Diablo Episode 296: Flame Wars with Francois





This week, Francois takes over and rightly so, for this episode belongs to http://stardestroyer.net/ . The gentleman blogger describes to us how Star Wars in superior to Star Trek in every way. Now, before you send ME hate mail, let me tell you that this podcast is full of the hatemail Mr. Blogger gets. It brings out the child, the dreamer and the racist in these… Continue

FAITH HEALING

Did anyone else see Doctor Oz and his treatment of faith healing? Yuck, in what was purportedly an objective presentation Oz left the audience with an appreciation for the efficacy of faith healing. If the American populace is not ignorant enough, the Doctor added a dollop of dumb.

 

Probably some religious parents with ill children will ask JC's intermediary for a favor.

New design at my Cafe Press store

EELS! E.E.L.S. stands for "Examine everything logically, skeptically." It's an answer to the W.W.J.D. and F.R.O.G. products that Christians are wearing, but tailored to our lack of belief and skeptical natures. Plus, I just think eels are cool!

How Would You Deal With Me?

How would you deal with me?

 

I am an ardent existentialist who does not believe in freedom or choice. I believe I am a cog in the wheel, as it were, and I neither take responsibility nor accept blame for anything that happens. I do not plan ahead (consciously) or worry, and I do not look behind and regret. In my philosophy, it is impossible to make mistakes because everything is only what it must be, and could not be otherwise, despite the human suspicion that many…

Tuesday...

So I had so many thoughts rush through my head. And thankfully, my ever grounded boyfriend was there to help me sort through the mess.



It all began with a rant on politics. I don't want to push religion(not religious) or demand everyone wear red and black. I just want rational and functional goverment.



Boyfriend's idea: When you are old enough, run for Senate.



I looked at him like he was nuts. But I won't say I'm NOT thinking of it...But I do believe they would… Continue

My neighbor's kids are assholes.

My neighbor's kids are assholes. Always screaming, whining, and throwing temper tantrums in the cul-de-sac for the world to witness. Little bastards. Ironically, their Christoholic parents LOVE to gloat about how Christianity is the foundation of a good functional family. MY ASS. By the way, aren't those parents supposed to drag those little fuckers out in public and stone them to death for being unruly? Deut 21:18-21 does not say "Take away the Nintendo Wii for one week." Come on you… Continue

Deadly Combination: Arrogance and Ignorance

Bypassing a bibliography containing numerous books, articles and journals regarding Intelligent Design and Creationism, which do not reach the level of junk science and would need numerous upgrades to reach that plateau, it is important to understand how such thing harms the country. A recent survey of the top developed countries in the world ranked the United States as number 34 out of 35 in the acceptance of evolution, an embarrassment as well as a finding with enormous economic… Continue

Socialism Sucks!

Socialism, or collectivism, is a consequence of a more fundamental philosophical mistake. This mistake is the opinion that you do not have a moral right to your own life, that you owe part of your life to others. This idea is called altruism, which is mistakenly thought to be a moral position. Well, the principle of altruism, if you wish to actually think about it, is one of self-sacrifice, that it is moral to sacrifice your life to others. This should be clearly distinguished from benevolence,… Continue
