Preaching On Social Media - via rottingthoughts.wordpress.com

We’ve all been there at some point. You log onto your favorite social media website like Facebook, and as you scroll through the many status updates in your news feed with highlights about your Aunt Martha’s cat, or your friend’s son that lost a tooth, you see this:

If you are irreligious like myself, all you see is this:…

Some Reasons Why I Am An Atheist

First off, I'd like to say that if anyone could give me hard evidence of the existence of

a goD and this evidence could be tested by Scientists and proven to be true then I

would crawl through 100 miles of razor sharp glass just to kiss goDs feet. Simply

put, I am open minded to a certain point. The bIBLE can not be used as hard

evidence because it is a book of stories written 2000+ years ago, by humans that

were very ignorant of the reality around them. Plus, many of the…

Females and Bad Boys

Until recently, I could not understand the attraction that Females had for Bad Boys.



Example;

     I once knew a man that was a liar, cheat and thief. He had been in and out of

Jail and Prison MANY times, used very hard drugs and treated Females like they

were subhuman. Whatever you can think of that's rotten to do to a Female, he did.

 I was visiting the state where he lived and it just so happened that he was being

released from Prison the next day. So....I…

extremists. no good, all bad, and ugly.

So, started reading The End of Faith by Sam Harris today, and although i agree with him, i think there is a side to this issue that nobody really wants to talk about.

Yes, we all know that fundamentalists, religious extremists, are horrible and dangerous to society, humanity and the world, but what about atheist extremists??

I dont think they should be ruled out just because they are atheist. Here is my example:

 

Religious extremist: blows up a building because…

Apologists of Circumcision

The Columbus, Ohio newspaper, The Republic, just today printed the story Religion: Battle Over Circumcision, describing the battle that is erupting in San Francisco over a November 8 ballot that would ban male circumcision. While much of the article tries to distract readers from the issue by making reference to Foreskin Man and how it incites the anger of religious groups like Jews. I think the real issue is not what the author of “Foreskin Man” is up to, but the fact that there is an…

Hell is not moral

When a theist starts to babble on about how god is moral there are a lot of ways to shut them up. One of my favorites is to talk about hell. at a first glance hell seems like jail, a place where evil people go. But when you think about it you can make hell seem not moral without even using the bible agents the… Continue

Conversations with Mother

So, my partner and I are moving to Washington, DC. We've told our family. Everything was going really well.....until.....



A few night ago I was talking with my mother. Once again, I mentioned the move. She acted like she had not heard this before. The conversation on the phone went something like this:



Mom - So you are really going to move.



Me - Yes, we are.



Mom - You are making a big mistake. I don't know why you don't understand the cost of living… Continue

Twilight tries to make absteince 'cool'

After all the fuss about Twilight I finally decided to read it. Originally, I pushed it off as nothing more than a fad book, that is mediocre at best, my expectations were not quashed as I read through this book.

Myers had other motives for this book, obviously and her Christian faith had a strong influence on the behavior of her characters.

The basic plot of the story is, Bella, a 17 year old girl, falls "in love" (more like becomes infatuated with) Edward Cullen a 104… Continue

Love Happens - Unfortunately

Even motivational speakers can be stricken with bouts of insecurity and Burke is no different. Love Happens’ flat main characters are almost saved by complex and well portrayed secondary characters who steal the scenes whenever they are on screen.



After the death of his wife, Burke (Aaron Eckhart) shares his grief with other people who have lost their loved ones by creating a self help program called A-Okay! While traveling to Seattle for a conference, he meets the beautiful and… Continue

Morals came from some where.... so they must have came from God!

98% of theists (don't ask where I got those statistics. I don't know.) I've talked to for some reason think this is an end-all good argument, when it really is a poor one.

They usually start out by asking if you believe in good and evil. My answer is yes, with a but. Yes but...people aren't all good or evil. Good and evil are very vague and broad terms, especially the word good. The idea of Good and Evil isn't the same for all people, but generally most people living in the same place… Continue

Trial to Begin for Parents Who Let Daughter Die

Anyone remember Ava Worthington? She was the subject of one of my first (and admittedly bad) blog posts back in 2008. Carl and Raylene Worthington were her unbelievably cruel parents, the people who let their 15 month old daughter suffer for months before dying. Simple antibiotics would have saved her young life. This is the same couple that lost another child in 2001 under questionable circumstances. Well Carl and Raylene are back in the news.… Continue

Vilification

Do we need to vilify the messenger?

It appears that some people are starting to get tired of correcting the information over and over again. Everyone is tired of defending the same arguments over and over again.



There is always some new punk who comes into town and says "Draw Mister!" And, we begrudgingly thumb through our old notes and paste them into new blogs.



The problem is the bridge these punks cross over. Where is it? Does it matter? We can do two things. We… Continue

A brilliant tactic used by the religious right



How great is it that every time anyone decides it is not appropriate for the religious right to force their beliefs upon the public at large, specifically other peoples children, they accuse the complainers of doing the exact thing they are being asked to stop?



It's a confusing and brilliant way to argue if you ask me. It's as if you walked into a room and found a man punching a baby and the guy made eye contact, pointed at you and screamed "CHILD ABUSER!"… Continue

Waffling in Suburbia

Heart and head hurt
too young to be feeling this old
too old in my head to be so young and ignored
crying myself a river
wah! wah! wah!
I thought of another line,
but I forgot it because I'm losing my mind


Ah, I've missed writing bad poetry
Here's another, just off the top of my noggin:

Blasted bitches trading gossip
at the elementary school
That one, there, with the green hat.
Gonna go and give her a slap

Bad Religion, bad bad religion

Frankly I don't know much about Bad Religion, but I stumbled across some lyrics and was delighted to find that I agreed with the sentiments. I've heard before they are an atheist band, but you know how that goes.



NEW DARK AGES by Bad Religion



Yeah can you hear the call in our rambling land susurrations,

That can expand beyond all hope of light and plunge us into unrelenting night



A pall on truth and reason,

It feels like hunting season

So avoid… Continue
