They 'tried' with 'bible versus' to save Rudy Eugene, 31, in Miami.. obvious fail yet again.

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)

Enough Already--They Ain't That Great

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…

Teaching Religious Mythology 3: Easter, Passover & The Pagans

Editor's Note: I threw out my back awhile back and ended up in a hospital waiting room yesterday, so I wasn't able to get this post out then.  Better late than never.

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…

Religious E-mail Signatures - At Work

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.

Lies, damn lies and the people who ignore them

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:

1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

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…

Why are Christians conservative?

Whether it's a well-known concept or not, the hypocrisy of modern Christians is startling. Well, not startling when you realize (to even their admittance) that they do not read their own Bible. But startling to us who have, and have gleaned from its pages some positive things.

 

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…

How A Christian Lost His Faith

I thought it only appropriate for my first Atheist Nexus blog to be a story of how I lost my faith. Let it be a lesson on how to reason with the unreasonable. First a little background on where I came from.



I was raised in a Christian fundamentalist home. My uncle is a Petroleum Engineer which he thinks… Continue

Hell

hell is a place of suffering and punishment for those who do wrong, even tho as long as you are saved nothing u can do can get you in hell.

Someone who rapes and murders people every night for 20 years straight before getting caught and and put in prison for 20 years. he gets out after serving his time, but within 3 years he goes right back in for killing 10 people. Then this time he is given the death sentence will go to hell right? he will pay for his crime for what he did and will be… Continue

Snarking On Noah's Ark Theme Park

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…

Opinions about the Bible are like noses: Everyone has one

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…

The Jews Killed Jesus - Christianity's Biggest Lie?

i was just watching this video on youtube, "the hidden jesus" where a christian theologian explores other religions with stories similar to the jesus story.


what got my attention was in part six where he makes the claim that "for the last 2000 years christianity and judaism have been at war over jesus. why? because of what some consider christianity's biggest lie."…

Mondo Diablo Episode 267: Satan: The Lesser of Two Evils





Turns out I'm not the only one who thinks that one of the great injustices of the Christian religion is its portrayal of Satan as The Greatest Evil, which isn't even warranted by biblical standards. This week, I read these two essays:

I've started reading the bible!

I know its probably been done before, but I'm reading the bible and chronicling my journey through its vast pages.



If anyone is interested, I would appreciate it if they took a look:
