Chaplaincy in Australia's State Schools...

In an emotional display, Kevin Rudd PM told the story of a couple that he knew personally, who died tragically whilst doing a good deed, to the Australian Christian Lobby’s annual conference in Canberra. Allan Taylor, the husband, was a school chaplain. Rudd intends to give $42.8mil in funding to the National School Chaplaincy program which was due to end late 2010.



Rudd used personal testimonies of Taylor, by friends, students, teachers, and colleagues as evidence of the importance… Continue

Don't pastors' kids make the best atheists?

From Not My God





Don’t pastors’ kids make the best atheists?

November 19th, 2009



Those of you who read my sample chapter on Janet (which was also published) have read the story of a PK (preacher’s kid) who experienced one of the worst things that could happen to a child. Her father urged her to pray to forgive the man who sexually abused her, something she was not able to do. This was a pivotal moment in… Continue

Indianapolis schools ban only selected religions, as well as atheist and LGBT sites, from students' Internet.

Indiana_In_God_We_Trust



Indianapolis public schools, in a clear breach of church-state separation, are banning students from viewing the websites of only certain religions, as well as atheist and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) sites.



According to a Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) press release, Indianapolis public schools are illegally discriminating… Continue

The God(s) of Abraham?

So, who is the god of Abraham? Is it Yahweh, God, or Allah? Or, are they all simply one in the same?



It depends on how you define things. The Christian god is supposed to be the same god as Allah, but obviously you can’t actively believe they are all one in the same. Why? Because of the differences of laws, beliefs, and the judgments those gods are involved in. A Christian is not going to look at the things attributed to Allah, such as the prophet Muhammad and the insistence that… Continue

Doodlemastery Bible School Part 2: God's Image = dirt

Here's the original.



"If you're descended from monkeys, does that make you think you can act like one?"



No, the truth is much more hopeful. You see, our Lord God saw fit to craft us from dirt. Which means we should act like... dirt... human... things... with ghosts...



Yeah, I'm not sure how anyone can go through their whole lives and not notice… Continue

Doodlemastery Bible School Part 1 (this is late)

I'm just going to link to my original blog post. I posted this last Sunday and I'm making it a weekly review of the entire Bible. Enjoy!

Here you go.

The truth about Christianity.

There are dozens of offshoots of Christianity: Catholicism, Protestantism, Lutheranism, Greek Orthodoxy, Jesuit churches, Baptist churches, Latter-Day Saints, Eastern Orthodoxy, Evangelism (Born-Again churches), Mormonism, Branch-Davidian churches, Methodist churches, ad infinitum. These are all separate churches (schools of thought) dealing with the same faith; the same holy book - that book being the Bible.



Now, you'd think that - if the Holy Bible is the true and infallible word… Continue

All Christians together? Hmm!

More evidence, as if it were needed, of the way religion likes to think itself inclusive but is anything but comes to us in a report on the Ekklesia website.



A girl wanted to get into a Christian “faith” school in Wrexham, UK. But she was the wrong kind of Christian, so couldn’t.



It’s called the St Joseph's Catholic and Anglican School, but Aston Padley (11) is not from an Anglican or Catholic family.

Does it matter that Bible knowledge is on the decline in Britain?

Bible knowledge is on the decline in Britain. Fewer than one in twenty are able to name all of the Ten Commandments, and a number of youngsters thought the Bible “old-fashioned”.



Well, it is, I suppose. It’s been around for quite a while now.



A survey, according to the Reuters story linked to above, says that 40 per cent “did not know that the tradition of exchanging Christmas presents… Continue

The Complexity of Sexuality

What's So Great About Christianity?







What's so great about Christianity?

Not much in my opinion. Nonetheless and despite my atheism, yesterday I checked out the book by the same name from my local library. The author, Dinesh D'Souza, has a big task ahead of him. I think he may have bitten off more than he can chew.






In the book D'Souza (supposedly) reveals the following, which is laid out on the inside flaps of the…

Who is more stupid(or more dangerous) pope or Muslim mullahs?

most times when I compare Christianity with Islam I found it less dangerous and more tolerate-able . but some times priests and the Pope change my mind !

take a look at this New York Times article (his first statement about condoms)

Pope Says Condoms Make AIDS Problem Worse

here at least in Iran mullahs have no problem with condoms or other birth control methods or STD prevention .

How can… Continue

Is God Lying or Making a Mistake?

As most of you probably already know, the bible contains a lot of contradictions and inconsistencies. A favorite of mine occurs right in Genesis in chapter 2 when God tells Adam and Eve not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.



It's a great way to start of the bible... with a supposed omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent being either lying to Adam or making an error. Go figure.



For the details of my take on it, go to… Continue

Hypocrite among christians?

Sometimes I feel such a hypocrite...



Am I? The reason I ask myself this question and now put it to all of you is what started the last summer and continued until a couple of weeks ago.



During the summer I was working with a couple of guys at my college. Both of them really nice, a Japanese guy and an American of Lao descent. The Japanese guy, let's call him Taro, one Friday invited me to a party "for international students". I said sure, let's go. I hadn't gone to any… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt14

The 14th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Creation is evident”

By:Aron Ra



In May of 2007, former child actor, Kirk Cameron and fellow advocate of idiocy, Ray Comfort, promised to scientifically prove the existence of God on national television,



“100% absolutely –without the use of faith”.



Of course that didn’t happen. Religious beliefs –as everyone knows- are assumed on faith in lieu of proof and regardless of evidence. Cameron and… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt13

The 13th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Evolution is a fraud!”

By: Aron Ra



Ernst Haeckel was a pioneer zoologist and taxonomist whose numerous contributions to biology go largely unnoticed compared to a couple rather odd errors. First, he proposed that “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny", suggesting that embryonic development reflects the organism’s evolutionary ancestry. To illustrate this, he produced about a hundred drawings of embryos at various stages.… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt11

The 11th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Macroevolution has never been observed.”

By: Aron Ra



You share more traits in common with your siblings than you do with your cousins due to the recent ancestors you share with them, your parents. Deeper down, you share more in common with those in your extended family than you do with neighbors and classmates, etc., people you don’t recognize as part of your biological family. But you must realize that on some level… Continue
