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
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
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…
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
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

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
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
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
1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part. However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue
"Yeah thats right! Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 Version 4.0 Beta - BITCH!" - The Angry Video Game Nerd aka My Personal Jesus's father and therefore God... along with Geddy Lee, Dave Mustaine, Tony Kakko and my Grandfather who was the best man I ever knew and will ever know. If there is a Heaven, he better have a seat in the best part or else I'll be pissed off big time.…
I was standing in my bedroom, about to go to bed, and I had just set my alarm clock. All the nights in the house were off and everything was dark. I had an itch so I closed my eyes tight and started to rub them. BAM! I saw a glaring bright white light, like polished gold, in the form of three large circles, one in the center of my vision with two copies on either side (possibly in the form of a double helix?) all of equal size, made up of many… Continue
So, who is the god of Abraham? Is it Yahweh, God, or Allah? Or, are they all simply one in the same?
It depends on how you define things. The Christian god is supposed to be the same god as Allah, but obviously you can’t actively believe they are all one in the same. Why? Because of the differences of laws, beliefs, and the judgments those gods are involved in. A Christian is not going to look at the things attributed to Allah, such as the prophet Muhammad and the insistence that… Continue
A great source on Christian mythology (read bullshit) can be found at the well researched site Jesus Never Existed (jesusneverexisted.com). I found the whole issue of Jesus’ alleged birth to be particularly interesting. And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a CITY of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
And all went to be taxed, every one into…Continue
One of my favorite and most impressional lessons from my religious education was the story of the sisters, Martha and Mary where Jesus comes over as a dinner guest. Mary spends her time at "Jesus feet" listening to him, while Martha is getting (rightfully) upset that she is the only one making all the preparations for dinner. (Luke 10:38 - 41.) While Jesus' lesson to Martha is that listening to him and his… Continue
