Religions: My New Definition: Hijackers Of Childhood/Atheistic Wonderment Of Everything For Dubious Agendas.

During our early childhood years as young Atheists (Implicit Atheism, no knowledge nor care about Gods) most of us had an overwhelming wonderment for absolutely everything, I spent my childhood examining everything I could find and wondered how it all worked and was related to myself, if given a present involving technology, within two days it would be in pieces as I investigated what made it move or make noises, blow air, etc.... 

This wonderment followed me into my early teens and…

BeginningAndEnd.com, Creationist Haven, No Intelligence Exists In Advocates Of That Website!!

A friend of mine who enjoys trolling websites posted a comment back in 2012 on the Creationist Haven called BeginningAndEnd.com.

I allowed him to use my Account and Alias on this site, because I had stopped trolling it myself as I considered such site full of complete Idiots as a waste of time, since they either don't reply for weeks or they simply scrub the posts if they find them too alarming.

This site (Beginningandend.com) supports Creationism, Illuminati…

Buddhism created Christianity!

It appears highly probable that the teachings of Buddha, in the form of Greco-Buddhism which was picked up and spread by Hellenistic groups associated with Alexander The Great around 300BC assisted in spreading many of the Buddhist philosophies throughout the Hellenistic world of which the so called birthplace of Jesus Christ was included.  So it was extremely probable that Jesus (if he existed) had knowledge of such Buddhist philosophies.  Something Christians had wrongly denied by…

Scriptural Innaccuracy Plagues Christianity

It is a fact that nobody knows what the original scribes who authored the Bible were really thinking.

As with all written documents concerning people and times, meanings of words, their emphasis and context change with time.This is only considering the original texts.

Then there are the translations and editorship of these texts, which add, subtract and distort the original texts.

Such translations occurred to the old testament in in the 200 years BC and…

Get God out of Government!

"Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

Q&A: Jewish Atheist replies to Christian Atheist

In an email exchange, an old friend and fellow English-prof colleague wrote this:

"I know you're 'the Jewish atheist,' but don't you feel a strong sense of identification with the Jewish ethos, aside from religion? You've sought out Jewish wives, and friends to some degree could be, the way I might seek out writers as friends. I think of my former Catholicism not angrily but gratefully. When I grew up, I decided on my own that I didn't believe. But my Catholic education was excellent;…

How Does Religion Inspire such Tenacious Dedication?

Recently I spoke with a theologian who holds a young-earth creationist viewpoint, and I was struck by his illogical dedication to his beliefs. It was apparent that he was not unintelligent: our conversation touched on a great variety of topics, including quantum physics, the origin of the universe, and modern astrophysical theories. He was clearly knowledgeable and scientifically aware -- apparently he…

An insight on why I criticize Religion, and anything that's associated with it.

I don't agree to religion. It proves to be a great hindrance for anyone who would like to make strides in progressing forward.

If you think that you need to belief in a deity and a constructed set of beliefs passed down from history to pave you a path for self-control, then you're one of those people very frail of mind...something that you straight-away deny from the very start.

Religion can and will be criticized for any problems and wrongs that it contains. To consider it as…

Wealth, treasure and thrift in the Bible

So, I listened to a little bit of Dave Ramsey today on talk radio because, well, conservative talk is about the only option in East Tennessee, and I usually prefer talk with which I disagree compared with bad pop and worse rock. If you don't know who Dave Ramsey is, he's…

The Battle for Zachary’s Brain V: Tears on His Pillow; The Consequences of Unbelief

“Do you know that many people believe in God?

They think God made the world and runs the universe.

Some people grow up and learn that God is JUST PRETEND like Santa.

But some people still believe God is real. . .

Some people believe in a god who gives rewards to favorite people.

They imagine a place called Heaven with gold and crowns and music and no pain or work.

Some people believe in a god…

Started Reading "Lost Christianities" by Bart Ehrman...

I didn't expect it to be so funny!!

I've had (literal) laugh out loud moments (in public too!) 

Very very interesting.  And I can see now how it builds on works like "Jesus interrupted" - the revelation about the last 12 verses of Mark / Jesus being Angry / The Woman Caught in Adultery  - is just scratching the surface of the complexity in the world of beliefs prior to the New Testament actually being written.

This book is utterly fascinating.

Mondo Diablo Episode 365: The Rise and Fall of God

This week's content comes to us from http://www.everythingisterrible.com/, from the DJ/collage artist Defenestrator III (look for his tag on the posts there). In honor of the great work he does for the collective, or whatever you would call the folks at Everything is Terrible, I will now be posting all my podcasts in 160 kbps. I don't think 82 megabytes…

The Bankruptcy of the Free Will Defense

Intro:



In the philosophical competition of worldviews many Christians use the "free will defense" as a way to excuse their god's apparent moral negligence in this world. Supposedly the value of free will is greater than whatever evils may result from establishing moral beings who have this opportunity to do both good and evil and suffer or profit as a result of it. I've taken the liberty of assembling all of my analysis of this popular move of theirs. Enjoy.…

How Far Will Zionism Go?

"My question to these people has been simply to ask how far will you go? The bible clearly promises Abraham all the land between the Nile and the Euphrates. That represents an absolutely ludicrous amount of territory for Israel to conquer and the logical conclusion of a prophetically informed expansionist policy is to annex significant portions of Jordan, Syria, Iraq and Egypt. "

i will not drink the blood of a fool

when the glory of the lord shall shine

and blind men to his crimes

as the lies that he had promised me

would bind me to his tree

when all the angels in the dark

would brand me with the devil’s mark

i’d curse and cry with my last breath

‘i’ve still a half a bottle left!’

leave me alone, save someone else

i love my sinful, wicked self

take off from me this pit bull’s leash

save it for a pederastic priest

what good is my soul…

Don't Talk to Christians

Having a conversation, either on line or face to face, with a Christian is something all of us have endured. Just out of curiosity, can anybody point to an incident where they accomplished anything by doing so? I know I can’t, but maybe some of you have a higher tolerance for fools than me.

So why talk to them? Perhaps you are afraid that by not responding you concede the argument and they win by default. This appears to have merit until you examine the idea closer. The premise is you…

I tried to pay attention

History is a funny thing. The more I live through the more out of touch with history I have become. There was a time when a first person account of a historical event was deemed primary evidence when assessing both the event itself and the implications that followed from the event. Now eye-witness accounts are treated as 'anecdotal evidence' as if they were some story I made up about what happened even though it happened in front of my eyes and to me. Unless they mesh with the received…
