The inconvenience of history.

The reason the Abrahamic triumvirate commits genocide against stone age tribes ie: Australia's aboriginals, is because it eradicates our history as well. We too were hunter gatherers as well and in the attempted cultural and in many cases actual genocide of such peoples covers this up from a historical perspective. I really do not know the bible that well but as far as i understand it do they not go from Adam and Eve to extant agricultural and urban societies in a couple of chapters. So…

Noah's Arc Funny!

I had a wonderful observation at Storybook Island. It's a place where all the nursery rhymes and children's stories stand as statues and slides and cool playground toys are sure to keep the young ones busy. Humpty Dumpty and the three little pigs and all the other fairy tales fill the park. I was most amused when we got to Noah's Arc. First off, yes, it was in the middle of all the other fairy tales! That may be the most amusing thing to many. But, for me, it was the fact that they had a…

Child Abuse

I didn't realize just how screwed up I've been by religion until I watched Paranomial Activity with my husband. Now I think all that stuff is just bullshit. I mean really on paper it just sounds so insane, but when you grow up hearing this stuff it still doesn't sit well with you. It left me anger because Hollywood being Hollywood plays on our fears, but more importantly these fears are here because we are allowed to program them into children. From the time we are young we are taught to…

2012: that god-awful movie.

Apart from when I'm not insulting people's memories of the dead (see other blog) I occassionaly watch movies.



Rented two films last week, one of which was 2012. And I just want to mention one particular gripe, at the end when those who are dead are dead and those who are alive are alive. They conclude by saying "thank god we made it."



Both the ending and the alternative ending did it. "Thank God you survived."



As if the past two years of tectonic uplift and the past… Continue

Do I deserve the opprobrium? (A blog about insulting the dead)

Was in a discussion about what is spirituality and it's relationship to the supernatural on a thread on a website that includes a fair few Christians and religious sorts and one person related in a public forum this story to the OP:





I cared for a young dying AIDS patient years ago. X. When he died I threw a rose into the ocean back home in Ireland to remember his passing. I said, "IF you are 'up there' - you get your… Continue

Life After Faith, New Book On the Way

My seventh book, Life After Faith, will be published in the next few weeks. Based on almost a half-century as an insider, it tells the story of my emergence from super-natural faith to practice a down-to-earth kind of "natural spirituality." This will not please extremists on either side of the divide! Some atheists will throw garbage and some people of faith will throw prayers, but it's a personal story of leaving faith, ordination as a Protestant Minister… Continue

"International Boycott Of The Arabic Drug Empire"

When I wrote my first " Boycott" I just wanted to see the trickle effect it would have, with out stepping into a forth dimension and having my in site lost.

The Arabic Drug Empire is the only one in the world that seeks to kill every last man woman and child in the world in order for their chosen few can repopulate the world....

Our goal is for…

America: Should I stay or should I go?

Taken from my blog: http://godlesspaladin.wordpress.com/



This is a very hard post for me to write. These issues have been ricocheting around in my brain for a couple of months now, I thought writing them down would help me figure it all out. I’ve tried writing

this entry several times but I could never really collect all my

thoughts and try to get across what it is exactly I have to say. You

see, I am at a turning…

LA Riots Over Lakers Win - WHAT THE F?!

Alright, this is bullshit... if your team WINS then why are you tearing up YOUR CITY? Call me crazy but in most places a joyous celebration usually doesn't turn violent.... does it?

Basically there are people IDIOTS running around, jumping on cars and toppling things while the usually trigger happy LAPD just sit back and let it happen. I can not begin to describe how big of a headache I have attempting to…

Do Very Religious People Scare You?

Do religious people scare you?

Do their actions or their mannerisms raise the hair on the back of your neck?

A few years ago I saw a well known TV Preacher at a national political convention.

He had his "entourage" with him. I guess that’s the nice way of saying, “pack” like a pack of wolves.

The "vibrations" they gave off were the kind that made a person become very "vigilant." I’m saying that because these are the feelings I was… Continue

The croaking of a crow

It is the splendid time of the year, we don't know when the birds produce the first egg this spring, and the baby birds began to follow behind the mother birds, jump and play and be familliar with the arround places which mother used to be everyday, it is June now, I found the same scene as the past years.lovely birds familly -----I did not notice who is father yet----everywhere, they are even in the park near people, ask foods for their children.

One day, my friend visited me…

Goodbye Dad

My father is dying. He is dying but he is happy. He will be 80 in October and he may make it that far, though we are not sure. He is in pain and he has been struggling for many years with breathing and chest pain as well as pain in his legs.

But I do not want to dwell on the pain. I think there are many women who think of their fathers as heroes. I know this is true for me. When I was little I wanted to be just like him and one would often…

Off my chest

There isn't much of a point to this... I am having a hard day today. I've been under a lot of physical stress from my job as I've been working nights and for whatever reason my hormones kick on whenever I'm stressed and I start bleeding. This is also week three without smoking and I'm going to visit my mom later today who is dying of cancer... it's funny, when I typed that I just typed "my mom" instead of my parents. My poor dad.

I need to do something with dad. I am…
