Pat Robertson is Divorced From Reality

 



When you’re talking about the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) a good defense is apparently a good offense – and no one is more offensive than…

Why Jesus Would Be A One Term President

Here's a comedy bit I wrote up. Enjoy.

 

I was trying to come up with a topic to write about tonight. I was making some bread (yes, I make my own bread) when it hit me: Jesus would suck as a president. Here are the reasons.

 

10. Jesus surrounds himself with punks. Have you read the New Testament?  The apostles can barely get out of their own way. Who hired Judas?…

Mondo Diablo Episode 316: Jesus was a Buddhist Monk?





This one's from a BBC documentary about the possible alternative scenarios to Jesus Christ's reanimation from the dead. Pretty credulous, but worth a listen!

Running into a cathedral with a stick of dynamite



 

I’ve always been one to let curiosity get the best of me. On the playground as a child, I refused to use the space as it was intended the way other children did. I played on the roof, I played on the outside of the walls, I climbed up the support beams. I wasn’t inclined to be restricted by the ‘right’ way to interact with the space set out for me. This trend of individualism marked many important decisions in my life, from being an exchange student…

My book and blog

Hi everyone - I'm just starting out at atheist nexus so I thought I'd post links to my blog (Holy Blasphemy) and my book (Jesus Potter Harry Christ). I'm doing my phd in literature, so my blog basically deals with literary theory, comparative religious…

Mondo Diablo Episode 301: How Would Satan Destroy the Human Race? He'd put Pants on Women





It's not Mothers' Day, but with all the daffodils and crocuses coming up, it just might be time to drag out a Mother's Day sermon. After all, it's Women's History Month, and this is, historically, what it's like to be a woman listening to this kind of sermon every year on Mothers' Day. Yeah, you get to hear about what an evil slut you are. I suddenly realize that it's pretty damned easy to find something… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 298: What is Your hidden Spiritual Gift?





This clip comes to us from Dave Grubin, who is in fact not an 80's tv action/adventure beefcake personality. He is a Vinyl Preacher, for all intents and purposes. He makes Christianity all mystical and New-Agey, while retaining that Ol' Time Religion. Who else can do that?



UPDATE!



Another way to listen to Mondo Diablo is to go to… Continue

Chapter Three; LOOKING DEEPER part eight

While I was in the Army, stationed in The Republic of Panama, I started getting involved with hermeneutics. I was stationed there for 15 months and had a lot of free time to fill. I studied using The

Amplified Bible that was given to me as a gift from a good friend of

mine, in addition to other study books. Here is a quote from the web

site of The Amplified Bible about why it was made; “It attempts to take

both word meaning and context into account in order to…

Chapter Three; THE RISE OF SCIENCE part seven

As mentioned before, the level of my religious experiences could fill many pages. So, while there is much more to be said, most is going to be skipped for now. I am just going to touch on a five main areas of why Christianity lost its hold on me.



1.The age of rocks on the Earth and the amount of time it takes for light to travel through space couldn't be rectified with text in the Bible. The best answer I received was, “God put all the things there when he created The Universe.” This… Continue

Chapter Two; MAKING THE SPIRIT REAL part six

Other adherents will offer this option to me, “If you only would trust your heart, then you would know that God is real.” To this I say, “I have followed what I felt was the Lord's leading in my life for many things as surely as you feel that you are now.”   This also includes for family, friends, in jobs, relationships, where to go for trips and much more. There is not a single area that I didn't try to “bring under” the power of God.  Even my marriage.  But the facts of reality must be…

Chapter Two; MY MORMON MISSION part five

When I recently visited a Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints in Ponca City, Oklahoma, this was shown not to be the case. To give a little background, before I proceed, would be helpful. While I was serving in the Army, one of my roommate’s was a Mormon from Idaho. I think our commanding Sargent thought it would be a “good” idea to put the more outspoken religious believers together to make sure they wouldn't mess with the men that wanted to go out, party and have girlfriends, while…

TWO WORLDS CONVERGE part three

In both of science and religions areas of my life, I have many more experiences that added to both my understanding of the natural world and understanding about Christianity and religion. In high school, I was fortunate to take almost every science class that was offered. I even became a science proctor, [that is a teacher's aide or assistant]. The classes I took included: General Science, Biology,(two years) Chemistry, Astronomy, Physics, and Zoology. The only two classes I didn't take that…

FUNDAMENTALISTS, THE BIBLE IS NOT INHERENT part thirty-seven





First, ask if they believe if the Old Testament still applies to a Christian Today. This will guide the rest of the discussion. As stated earlier, many fundamentalist state that they think the Bible is free of errors and contradictions. For my purpose and definition I would call “free of errors” as meaning that internally or externally is there anything inconsistent with the or contradictory in the text of the Bible or reflected in reality.

The good thing about this… Continue

Chapter Eight; WRAPPING UP THE TOP TEAMS part thirty-four

The fourth largest group of adherents are the Hindu. Most of these adherents are from the India and Asian subcontinent. I have a visited a lot of hotels around the country and it seems like most of the Indian Hindu run these hotels. Oddly enough they all seem to have the last name “Patel”. I am not sure what it is about their religion or culture that attracts them to the hotel business but they do, indeed, seem to have an attraction for it.

After the Hindu, the rest of the World's… Continue

Chapter Eight; WHAT ABOUT ALL THE GOOD THEY DO? part twenty-nine



It is fair to recognize the good that the religious adherents do again. After all, my forefathers came to this country to experience and escape

religious persecution of Europe. Religious America has allowed many

sorts of views of religion to live in a relatively peaceful manor. The

Puritans, Quakers, Baptists, Catholics, Presbyterians,…

God In Chaos; Chapter Seven; RELIGION SHINES ITS LIGHT part twenty-seven





Religion has truly surpassed the power of every invention that has followed it. As the

Bronze Age, Iron age, middle ages, the age of enlightenment and the

Modern ages have come and gone and gone, religion has been the enemy of

progress every step of the way. To the faithful, things like the Hubble

Space Telescope, nuclear weapons, and climate change are nothing

compared to the power of a faith that believes in a god. If anything man can… Continue

Who’s your daddy? The Cuckold Carpenter in Myth, Ritual and Philosophy
