1. Fathers and Sons
Over the past few days we've really gotten to know each other better. He's been tested and currently places on the mild end of the ASD scale (I'm likely right there with him) -…Continue

I just finished reading the personal diaries of Eve and Adam - you know, the original humans. It would appear that Mark Twain discovered the original manuscripts and succeeded to translate the ancient hieroglyphs somehow (perhaps he used a top hat) and published them to the world. I will be…Continue
So yet another victim from the non-mental health funding republicans all the way back to Regan. He knew there'd be this crap happening what with PCP, LSD, whatever pills, angel dust.. coke.. (all man made like god and all fail people)

After 34 years, Bishop Benjamin Arreak and a team of Canadian Bible Society translators, including Bishop Andrew Atagotaaluk, have completed the project of a lifetime: translating the Old Testament to make a complete Bible in…Continue

After the famed “Scopes Monkey Trial,” it might seem the state of Tennessee would avoid doing anything that put religion on display in a public place. Apparently, no wise men reside in the state because an old truism says, "a word to the wise is…Continue
The complex of beliefs and rituals surrounding Easter and passover make it so complicated and strange that the farther I go from religion the more it confuses the hell out of me. During my Catholic youth, I…Continue

Back in February I made the first post (Teaching Religious Mythology 1: Noah's Ark) of what I intend to be series on introducing different religious stories to kids and what resources are out there to help accomplish…Continue
To receive religious signature lines in business e-mails from third party vendors is simply so inconceivable to anyone I know at my company that when I began receiving them I had to share with my colleagues. They were just as surprised as I was.
What do you blog about when you don’t feel like blogging and don’t have anything to say? The Bible! Nothing like a bit of Bible study to get you going right? Right.
I thought that today, I’d go back to the beginning. You know, this bit:

I think even some Christians might recognize that line. It’s the first line of the Bible (the King James version anyway…). And I know…Continue

I know everyone here knows the answer is yes, but I am writing this for the ones that have not figured that out yet.
Don't get me wrong, the Old Testament is worth being burned (and as a hard-core reader, who faints when the page of a book is torn, that's something for me to…
What if you took the Bible and edited out all the supernatural references and got to the core of its ethical teachings? That’s not quite what the new release by…

This is from my site which can be found at www.themaverickjester.com
There are some news stories that if you didn’t laugh about your head would explode. Last week Kentucky Governor Steven L. Beshear announced plans to build a Noah’s Ark Theme Park. According to the New York Times, ”The state has promised generous tax incentives to a group of entrepreneurs who plan to construct a full-size replica of Noah’s ark, load it with…Continue

I am surprised by the heat in discussions about the Bible, even amongst atheists. Questions about myth and history in the Old Testament and Jesus as a historical or mythical character resulted in people slinging references from their favorite experts, back and forth. I could see the weaknesses of these arguments; but, it took awhile for me to formulate an explanation for why everyone was a…Continue
