Santa Clause is not real?

I asked my family this weekend why they as Christians feel it is OK to lie to their children about Santa Clause.  I explained that, to me, it seemed quite hypocritical that one of the Christian tenants is not to lie, but yet in celebration of the very beginning of Christianity Christians lie to their children about this man who brings toys. The answer I got was because it brings so much joy to the children.  So, is it one of those "ends justifies the means" types of…

An Atheist's Christmas

I first met a Reverend Jeremy Craigheart, a pale slightly overweight minister with a faintly protruding abdomen and graying sideburns, Pastor of the Church of the Redeemer, as his business card suggested, at a Christmas Eve dinner the Thompson’s hosted in the winter of 2002. I was a young law student with a constitution and a disposition of a Gregory House, and a best buddy to the youngest son of Mdm. and Mr. Thompson, thus…

The fact that they don't get it is the whole point

Hi friends I need to start blogging here more often, the accumulated toxins in my brain had me going mad.

 

Religious people just don't get it, and even worse they don't know it, but then again if they did get it they'd be rational members of this site.

 

My housemate said to me this morning "You don't believe in Jesus?" I said even more then that, I don't think he ever existed. This a very strong position for me, since I once was sure he was the only begotten son…

Update on "What if I prayed": A boy died today.

Some days ago I posted a case of a pastor friend of mine who had his son very sick.

 

Well, Today December 24 my friend the pastor had to see his son be disconnected from the machine that kept him alive. After many week of anguish and of seeing that child fight between life and death, science could do nothing.

 

But what about God? If we…

I think I found Ned Flanders' daughter

Remember the Simpson's episode in which Homer finds out there is no God and when Flanders is shown proof of it, he dismisses it and prefers keep with his beliefs?

So, you wan't a war on Christmas...

(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN SU NOMBRE EN VANO)

 

In the United States there is a widespread idea that there is an ongoing "war on Christmas" waged by atheists and in general, people who prefer a secular government in which every person has the same rights. As usual, this idea is proposed by the whiny religious right (mainly conservative Christians).



Sometimes they will…

Mondo Diablo Episode 290: Christmas for Mutants





Well folks, this is the home stretch. Christmas is headed towards that glorious week before New Year's, where everyone except shoppers who wish to bring their children with them to vex me and give me a headache are relaxing, eating turkey sandwiches, and watching sports. May you all enjoy something good next week; maybe some depressing foreign films? Or you could be like Francois and I, and make it a… Continue

Response to Senator Josh Brecheen of Oklahoma.

One of the bills I will file this year may be dismissed as inferior by “intellectuals” so I wanted to devote particular time in discussing it’s merits. [You put intellectuals in quotes so we do not know

exactly what or who he is referring to here. “it's” means, “it is.” This

makes no sense grammatically.

 

It doesn’t address state waste, economic development, workers comp reform or lawsuit reform (although I have filed bills concerning each) but it is…

Nov. 2010 issue of watchtower jehova newsletter. on ATHEISM!

Wow, what an eye opener. Causing the enemy to use their dollars to fight, that which itself is not a religion. Guess who adapts and is better suited for the future. . .
