As a resident of the Pacific Northwest, and occasional visitor to what is left of Mount St. Helens after the big blast in 1980, I was very interested to watch two specials that aired Tuesday night on Oregon Public Broadcasting.
The first was a very interesting look at how life has returned to much of the blast zone, a return that defied the expectations of scientists in the speed with which it happened. Which is not to… Continue

Q: No matter what science or scientists say, my faith
in the existence of a prayer-answering God is unshakeable. Do you have
any problem with that?
A: As I was sitting in
I knew the bottom wasn’t there.
Nor legs nor back, but I just sat,
little things like that.
(William Hughes Mearns)5.2
Q: What is prayer?
A: Prayer means ‘to… Continue

Have you noticed how believers insist on the fact that God has changed since the Old Testament? Supposedly the God from the New Testament is kinder, better, more loving than the one from the Old Testament. They really insist on this. I understand their embarrassment, but there is absolutely no message from God, no sacred text, no nothing that has been found engraved on some stone in some cave or delivered on some hill by an angel that tells us that God has softened his touch since the Old… Continue

Popularized by Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion, the Spectrum of Theistic Probability is a way of categorizing one’s belief regarding the probability of the existence of a deity.

Raccoons, rats, sharks and flat worms find their food in nature. All they have to do is find it and take it. Most of them succeed, since as far as I know those species have existed for millions of years and are still with us today. So it’s fair to say that a large number of… Continue

My wife and I went to go see Dr. Darrel Ray, psychologist and author of the best-selling book The God Virus
, speak yesterday in Memphis. His talk was a very thought-provoking and provocative look at how religion continues to spread despite the fact that logically, most religious belief makes very little logical sense. Ray… Continue

I see that there is trouble afoot in India with yet another 'holy man' abusing his power.
But don't forget, it's what God does all the time. He kills, rapes, threatens, bribes, cheats, deceives and manipulates; all for his own… Continue

Akosombo Dam, The only Hydroelectric Dam in Ghana prayed for by group of pastors so rains come down or be restored to supply the country's energy. They believe its the devil stopping the rains. so wont look for any solutions or renewable sources of energy, they get an excuse like always its the devil and satan. Ignorance once again. Continue
Why do we as a people sit down, watch for a Dam like this to run out of water without looking at…

So here we are talking and suddenly you feel uncomfortable with my arguments and you retreat behind your favorite barricade. Faith. You have faith. I don't.
It’s a matter of faith, you keep saying. Nothing else. You say that I don't believe because I don't have faith. I always end up asking, “What is faith?” And you invariably tell me, “Well, it’s when you believe!” “Ah,” I say, “so why do you believe?” “Well, because we have faith - that’s why we believe and you… Continue

I’ve always wondered, “When did humans realize they were mortal?”
Were we Australopithecus? Homo erectus? Or did we have to wait until we were fully Homo sapiens?
Imagine a small group of early humans. What did they think was happening when one of them was killed by a predator and became “something” that resembled the very same meat they had for dinner last night! What did they think? Did they consciously tell themselves “we are just mobile meat waiting to be killed… Continue

I was talking with an atheist friend of mine last week and he asked a fantasy question. What I mean by a fantasy question is that the questioner is reasonably certain that the question will never come up in reality. It is like asking who you would pick for your all star football team or if you could cast the new movie coming out who would you pick. In reality, you would never be in a position to make those decisions and in some cases, a fantasy question might even allow for you to pick people… Continue

I know that a lot of religious people think that most atheists are angry, but the truth is we know that this is our one and only life so most try to live it the best we can. Life is not a dress rehearsal for the big show. Atheists haven't caused as much harm as religious people by a long shot. No wars were ever started in the name of atheism, but they have in the name of god (any god). I have heard people say that Stalin and Hitler were atheists, but if you look at any of their writings,… Continue

Sometimes I wonder why I bother blogging about religion and atheism. Does it really matter if I read and talk about religions I don't even believe in anyway? I used to believe in God, after all, so why I don't just let bygones be bygones, leave religion alone, and post about something a little more entertaining, like funny animal videos on YouTube
! It'd be a lot cheerier, and I'm sure I'd get a lot more… Continue

This is a follow-up to my previous post
on church marquee epigrams. Richard Dawkins recently initiated an anti-religious banner on a London bus, but the material was pabulum. Something like, “There might not be a God so enjoy life.”
Utterly milquetoast. Read some of the epigrams on the list that the churches post. They’re downright… Continue

Today I received a message on Facebook from a friend that I knew in YWAM (she's French, so her English isn't perfect):
Girl !!! I've been thinking of you lately? How are you?? I remembered clearly the day in india when we preached and you found the courage to share what happened to you and how God was restoring you. I admired so much what you did that day !!! I've seen on your status that you were not so crazy about all of this anymore. And i wanted to share with you that… Continue
