OH MY!!!!! And I mean.. OH MY!!

So my girlfriend is studying to become a lay minister within her Church. I even helped her pay for a class.  She knows I’m an atheist and is fine with that. And I’m fine with the fact she is a Christian.

Well, during the class someone mentioned, yes..you know how…ATHESISTS….

Ya know what the instructor told the class.

Atheists tend to have and behave more “Christian” then the Christians.

That took a lot of people aback.

Kinds throws a different like on…

Jewish Atheist Fasts on Yom Kippur! (and other High Holiday thoughts)

God is the immemorial refuge of the incompetent, the helpless, the miserable. They find not only sanctuary in His arms, but also a kind of superiority, soothing to their macerated egos: he will set them above their betters.”

H.L. Mencken

“If this is your God, he is not very impressive. He has many psychological problems; he’s so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes.…

Happy New Year!

[Note: The following was written when I was an adherent of Humanistic Judaism.  I have since left the movement and revised the post, but the basic ideas still apply.]

 

“Soon silence will have passed into legend.  Man has turned his back on silence.  Day after day he invents machines and devices that increased noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.  Tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and…

"An Atheist Reads the Torah" -- Why I Wrote It and Why You Might Want to Read It

(Several years ago, I undertook to read the Torah.  For specific reasons, see below.  But basically I wanted to find out, to my own satisfaction, just what it said, to the extent possible, given that it's such an ancient text that's been repeatedly copied and edited. 

To rabbis, thus to most Jews, it is a repository of priceless wisdom.   I set out to find it. 

What I found was both enlightening and disappointing. …

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; SPORTS AND RELIGIONSpart thirty-one





This section is not the review of how so many sports heroes choose to solicit God's favor on their athletic endeavors but how who or what sports you choose to support has much to do with the same processes that one will select their religion. There has been many books and articles about that phenomenon. What I am referring to is the phenomenon of how who and what sport…

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,…

Chapter Seven; DOES ALLAH REALLY CARE? REALLY? part twenty-seven













I must add here the crimes of Muslim men that are being committed against innocent women just because the men think everyone should think the way they do. Though Muslim men make up a small part of most communities in Europe they make up a large part of the men convicted of rape and sexual assault. The men do not feel guilt since they blame the non-Muslim for not…
