Violent Video Games Reduce Violent Crime

With the recent shooting at a school in Newtown Connecticut and the shooting in Aurora Colorado violent video games are in the news again. The old men in the old media are blaming violent video games as they always do when a shooting hits the national news.

Violent video games have been the target of old media and conservatives for years. They will spout dubious studies and claim there is a link. They will blame any act of violence on violent video games even if the perpetrator never…

Jim Morrison post on Religion and Masturbation

Here is an excellent post by James Morrison, a world religions teacher on sex and religion. He looks at some of the crazy ideas that religionists hold, especially about masturbation. I wonder if he will actually talk about the views of the various religions on masturbation, including the ancient Egyptian god Autm, who masturbated his two children into existence?…

Introducing the Camino



So I’ve already announced my decision to take a pilgrimage in Spain and France, but what exactly is the

trail? Expect heavy plagiarism from Wikipedia...


The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of Saint James, is an ancient trail from various

starting points around Europe to Northwestern Spain. Like most of

Christianity, the trail began pagan and…

God In Chaos; Chapter Nine; THE INTELEGENT DESIGN VIEW OF EVOLUTION part thirty-eight

When addressing some of the issues of the fundamentalist view of evolution

it is important to identify some key words that they use to try to

vilify reasonable scientists and educated people that understand the

concepts of evolution and natural selection. From the way the word

Which Founding Father will the Texas Eduation Agency Axe Next?

Contrary to popular opinion I don’t hate Christians. That I am an atheist is true enough. But, just because I choose to live a life without gods does not mean that I hate those who choose to live according to the will of their imaginary friend.

Wallace Stevens: Most Eloquent of American Atheists? (Part I)

Wallace Stevens is now firmly regarded by the community of poets, professional critics, and—I think—the poetry reading public (sadly dwindling every day to not much more that poets and critics) as the greatest

American poet of the last century.

I will say right now that I share this opinion: indeed I will go further

and say that, considered on merely poetic grounds, I believe that Stevens is

the greatest poet America has…
