Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt10

The 10th falsehood of creationism; “The evolutionary ‘tree of life’ is nowhere implied neither in the fossil record, nor in any aspect of biology.”

By: Aron Ra



Creationists often complain that science supposedly says there was only one universal ancestor of all livings and that along the way, we evolved both into, and then from, bacteria. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. 21st century revelations in genomic research now imply that the origins of evolution come… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 9

The 9th falsehood of Creationism:“No transitional species have ever been found.”

By: Aron Ra



When Charles Darwin published his landmark observations in 1859, he lamented that the fossil record was still quite poor at that time. It was only in the last century or so earlier that anyone had even proposed the possibility that a single species could completely die out, and the first dinosaur wasn’t discovered until Darwin was a boy. Fossils were known by previous… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 8

The 8th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Mutations are rare, harmful decreases in genetic information.”

By: Aron Ra



"Mutations are genetic disorders that occur in the DNA in a random and unconscious manner.

Like all accidents, they cause harm and destruction.



...The changes affected by mutations can only be like those experienced by people in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl; that is death, disabled, and the freaks of… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 7

The 7th foundational falsehood of Creationism: “Evolution is random.”

By:Aron Ra



“Do you believe in fate, Neo?”

“No.”

“Why not?”

“Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.”



Some say it is a contradiction to believe both in prophesy and simultaneously in free will –for they can’t really co-exist. Because if anything a time traveler does in the past might dramatically alter the present, then anything done in the… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 6

The 6th falsehood of Creationism: “Evolution-ism” (Part II) “Evolution must explain the origin of life, the universe, and everything.”

By: Aron Ra



It is fair to say that none of the people who deny evolution exhibit any understanding of what it is. But it's not always their fault because many of the people promoting evolution don’t know what it is either. Hollywood producers certainly don’t!



“Are they the next link in the evolutionary chain?

Or… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 2

The 2nd foundational falsehood of creationism: Scriptures are the “Word of God”

By: Aron Ra



The 2nd foundational falsehood of creationism is the belief that sacred scriptures were written by a god rather than by the actual human authors. When believers argue over any of the many things which contradict their religion, they often challenge us to decide whom we are going to believe? The alleged “word” of God? Or that of Men? As if human inquiry had no chance against… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 1

The 1st Falsehood of creationism: “evolution = atheism"

By: Aron Ra



The U.S. population seems pretty evenly divided over whether the human species is biologically related to other animals or whether we were “specially-created” as part of a flurry of miracles. Even our collective politicians -seemingly all of them- are wrapped up in this controversy. Yet it is hard to find even one of them who know what it is about. Why is it that there is such concern in so many… Continue

Religious Atrocities History (Christianity Main Emphasis)!!

Christianity has been more of a threat to society. Let the historical record speak for itself...



Ancient Pagans



* As soon as Christianity became legal in the Roman Empire by imperial edict (315), more and more pagan temples were destroyed by Christian mob. Pagan priests were killed.



* Between 315 and 6th century thousands of pagan believers were slain.

New faith throws out the Ten Commandments

Religion is arguable the institution among us that that is responsible for the most bloodshed on our planet. With the creation of religion, man, in my view, have become more enemies to towards each other than ever. Religion have make us more ignorant and stupid. Religion turn us into pointless killers. Killing in the name of some God we can not see, will never see and who don't exist.

Yet we have people who kept trying to give us more of this bullshit thing call Religion.

Pagan's Retake Parthenon-Briefly



When I was a young student in school studying ancient mythology, I always loved the fanciful tales and colorful characters, but couldn’t help but wonder why we call ancient Roman and Greek religious practices mythology and ancient Christian practices religion. If Christianity had not had such a powerful or successful PR machine behind it, we might all still be praying to Athena and worshiping Zeus, and the world’s few remaining pagans might not… Continue

One is the Loneliest Number

I am what you would call an atheist. I have no belief in any "god" and I am perfectly happy with that. My children are freethinkers, but they are discovering how hard that concept is for others to accept. Can you imagine what it must feel like to have another child tell you emphatically that you are going to burn in hell if you don't "accept Jesus"? Both of my kids have found out exactly that. I bought a couple of books for them to read from Amazon a little while ago, so they could get an idea… Continue

All Hail His Noodly Goodness...with extra cheese

The other day we went to the theatre and saw two people with the Flying Spaghetti Monster on their shirts...funny thing was they weren't even together. I asked them if they could show my son their shirts and they were thrilled. He was hailed as a "fellow Pastafarian", much to his delight. My kids understand the ridiculousness in believing in any gods. Children have not a clue as to the true meanings behind the passages in the bible, no matter how much you drill it into their heads. Children are… Continue

The Bible vs. Love





Moral dilemmas are our gadflies, the weak spots of any philosophy, and by extension, of any religion. When one highly esteemed virtue battles with another of equal merit, reflective people the world over turn to their philosophy or faith to make peace between the two. But how would your favorite life-enhancing ethic deal with the following:

  • Does your duty to “crown & country” outweigh your…

Ancient Artifacts Subjected to Sacred Spin

[I first posted this lengthy review on my MySpace blog last year.]





I recently went to see an exhibition billed as "Ancient Treasures of the Holy Land" housed in the Embarcadero Building at Fair Park of Dallas. Fair Park has some fine museums, but the Embarcadero Building isn't one of them; it's just a general-purpose building with lots of space, usually given over to agricultural exhibits during the State Fair of Texas or various attractions during the North Texas IrishFest.… Continue

Angus Buchan – We are talking about the root vegetable right?

Every country has its vegetables; in the South African religious culture, July seems to mark the month of the potato – 70 000 potatoes to be exact. All of these vegetables gathered in all their disparity at the well-known Loftus Versfeld stadium in Pretoria on the 7’Th of this month to heed the mash that is the message of one of their insidious leaders in vegetable kind; Angus Buchan.



Buchan, who thought it apt to write a book entitled ‘Faith Like Potatoes’ – let’s just appreciate… Continue
