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

My mother-in-law loves to say: “maternity is a matter of fact and paternity is a matter of opinion.” Opinions about the parentage of Jesus expose the origins of his story in Palestinian…

'Did Jesus exist?' vs. 'Did God exist?'

In the beginning was the word, and the word was, like all words, a human invention, to label something that humans want to label. This gave shape to a concept that eventually led to an ontological fallacy (God-the-greatest-thing-I-can-imagine does indeed exist as a concept - that's the whole point - but that doesn't mean that God-the-greatest-thing-I-can-imagine also exists) ...



Whether a word represents 'the truth' is beside the point -… Continue

Was Mary’s husband Joseph was a “cuckold”

I think we all know the story of Jesus being born in a manger.

And I think we all now that “Jesus” was the “Son of God.”

Now Jesus’ mother was Mary.

His human “father” was Joseph.…

Deconstructing "Christian" Morality: Leaflet, Jesus' Ethics in Ten Easy Lessons

Those who claim to believe in "absolute" moralities usually don't actually follow them, and don't even pretend to try.


A few years back I decided to study the ethical teachings of Jesus. I sat down with a notebook and pen and a Bible, and (over the course of a week, off and on) read through the four Gospels, taking note every time Jesus said something about what we should DO. I skipped through the biography,…

Help me make an atheist movie.

Your part in the making of a Tacoma movie



Dear Friends and Family,



On February 20th of this year I started writing a screenplay. I assigned myself as director, and asked my friend Sarah Mangum to help out in the production of filming the screen play. We formed Aroma…

Mondo Diablo Episode 260: Awkward Questions: Outnumbered





Clips this week come from the BBC comedy "Outnumbered," in which awkward questions are asked by children, and adults fail.



Hopefully, I will be off-planet in a couple of days. So if you don't see me next week--you'll be too busy escaping the horror that awaits. Otherwise, I'll be podcasting from the saucers after I've had my fill of alien ecstasy. Praise… Continue

Where’s Jesus’ birth certificate?! (Photo)

While my wife and I were traveling through Arkansas this weekend, I decided we just had to pull over to take a picture.







I couldn't help but laugh at this. I'm assuming there were two separate intended messages here:



• I haven't seen enough proof that Barack Obama was really born in America, and therefore he shouldn't be… Continue

In some way, I envy the born-agains

I've always been fascinated by born-agains. They usually are sad people, who live a miserable life and hate themselves. They want to make a change to their life, but never have the motivation to do it themselves. Once they find out about this Christ character, that like a genie he can wave a magic wand and wipe away all the wrong things they did in their lives by just accepting him as there personal 'savior' they can feel guilt free. Murderer? Cheated on your husband? Drunk and beat your kids… Continue

Pastors pray for the only Ghanaian Hydroelectric Dam (Akosombo Dam)

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.



Why do we as a people sit down, watch for a Dam like this to run out of water without looking at…

Jews, Crucifixion, and Blame

It's good to visit fantastic worlds of Christian web-sites. A recent one said that blaming the Jews for the death of Jesus was unChristian and with no biblical support. Blaming all Jews, or any people for that matter, for the death of any real or imagined person some 2000 years ago is nonsensical and is usually for dangerous purposes. However the "no biblical support" - you have got to be joking.



So I revisited the Gospel passion narratives as well as one of Paul's letters in… Continue

Jesus and the Laughing Deity

it was in the great cathedral when nobody was around

just Jesus on cross beams wishin’ he could get down

when a stranger came in ridin’ a dusty old horse

and the stranger he was laughin’, respectfully of course



“why so glum?” the stranger said, “it’s such a beautiful view”

“Jesus!” said Jesus, “don’t you know who you’re talkin’ to?

and who are you to interrupt my sacred misery?”

“oh I thought you knew,” the stranger said, “I am the laughing… Continue

Answer me this...

I wrote this blog on Myspace, intended for christians to read. I have posted it here to help other newly converted atheists in their quest for helping other theists to realize that God, in the biblical term, cannot exist.





Below are a series of questions. These are questions that I had asked toward the end of my christianity, and was never given a good answer for any of them. I challenge other believers in a god to ask these questions as well. If these questions could be… Continue

Prayer my ass

My stepson is a devout Catholic. It bothers him that I have an atheist website and a presence on several atheist forums. He has an account on my member forum, at AtheistExile.com, and follows the conversations there as a lurker instead of a participant.



He told me I should try prayer, just for a little while, to see if they come true or not.



I never approach my family members on the subject of religion but if they approach me about it, I don't hold back unless I see them… Continue

Jesus is a Bastard (love child, nullius filius)?

How would you say something like - Jesus is a child of an unwed woman, and impregnated by a non-human (Angel, God, whatever).



"His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 1:18)



Here is the question I am trying to answer. How do you express Matthew 1:18 in a concise way. 6 words or less total, starting with "Jesus is a..." . Convey the same information, with quality,… Continue
