Star Wars Is Overrated

Edit: I didn't name this? I are dumb.

Now before you jump down my throat I'm not saying it's bad, the original trilogy is good for the most part but it is not the gold that people seem to view it as. There are many good parts but there are bad parts as well.

I know someone will say in response to some of my criticisms: "in the novelisation ..." I don't care. I doesn't matter what the novelisation says, the movies are what matter, not the novelisations of the movies. Another…

the road less traveled and outer nice sounding tittles

every just want to get up and go towards a new life a new start? do you ever feel that something has to just give ? to make something happen that you truly and honestly want it. it  has to take work and effort of some sort. life is a series of conversations i was once told  and i believe that. the more people that you talk to the more things seem to happen life seems to fallow an order to a  of  community  like one verbal chain reaction leads to the psychical action. the more you act the more a… Continue

What does it mean to be an atheist?

It is often said that atheism is entirely negative. It is merely a claim about the absence of something — a god, an afterlife, the supernatural realm.

It takes away, undermines, destroys.

And, in return, it offers nothing more than a pothole in the road, an empty glass of wine, a tune that no one will ever hear.

How I became a atheist

I was born to a Jewish family and was labeled "Jewish" as a little kid i never wondered or questioned the idea of god. When I went to my first school is was a privet school called GAI Greek American Institute [I’m not Greek i was just sent there because it was a good school]. The school had a church and as a student i had to go there every few days for a class during school [this was part of class and not for after school] when I went to this class i had no clue what they were talking about… Continue

God Is Totally Pro-Life

…except for that one time he publicly tortured and slaughtered his kid…which was after he flooded the entire world and killed almost EVERYTHING.

The Price of Tea

A few weeks ago I got a message from a friend after I suggested a website for them to visit to gather information. Later that day as I’m going through my mail I see that my friend replied to my suggestion with a brief note saying “I am a Christian and I cannot go to an atheist website.” I sat there flabbergasted wondering what happened between my suggestion and this note, thinking to myself “What does that have to do with the price of tea in…

I did not choose to stop believing

I did not choose to stop believing

I did not choose to leave behind

The Faith that’s been deceiving

My quiet innocent Mind

I did not want to be so different

I did not want to cause a mess

But I can’t stop my mind from thinking

That I can’t believe in just a guess

If God is Truth then what is Truth?

Is it Inconsistency?

Should He be real just because

The Bible makes good Fantasy?

It’s not that I don’t want Him there

If He is, He’s…

"[Don't let] Jesus Take the Wheel"

Has anybody seen Carrie Underwood's song, "Jesus Take the Wheel"?

 

Better yet, any of the remakes (i.e. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJEPFTwLkrg&feature=share)

 

Besides the obvious: don't let go of the steering wheel, you idiot; nobody, not the baby in the backseat nor your imaginary friend, Jesus, is going to grab it and steer for you (and your baby!)!!!



Further: How…

My newest project

So on April 9th, my good friend Jason had me come on his internet radio show to discuss the May 21, 2011 end times prophesy. It was originally just going to be me on the show with his co-hosts. The show runs for two hours and we were set to talk about Harold Camping, May 21st, and the rapture more generally. However, about 4 hours before the show was to start Brother Mike called Jason's hotline and…

Why do atheist communities seem more aggressive?

 I do find it refreshing that people are more straight forward in atheist communities than not.  And I would have to qualify that not all atheist communities are more aggressive than non atheist communities – but I do find a certain scene of directness and crossing social boundaries that are upheld in other places.

 

This isn’t to say that I don’t contravene quite a few social boundaries myself, and in fact feel quite more at home here on Nexus than anywhere else, where I find…

looking for poll data, would appreciate help

I'm looking for a poll I know I read about a few months (up to a year) ago about why people are leaving the church. It cited, among other topics, the treatments of gays and the treatment of women as reasons people are leaving religion.

 

If you find it, I will possibly love you forever. 

 

Thanks!
