I don't really want to stray into politics, but as the election draws near, please indulge me this once - at least until the next election season. I apologize for the ranty polemic.
Modern Conservatism is an utterly failed, worthless, bankrupt ideology whose policies have led to utter disaster and offers no solutions to any of the problems that confront the modern world. In place of solutions, modern conservatism has degenerated into an incohate mass of anger, rage,…Continue
Few Religionist traditions are more patently offensive than the myth of Original Sin and its dogmatic progeny, the myth of fallen humanity. What is our Original Sin? What is our great, intractable failing? What was our deep vileness that was so abhorrent that a SINGLE human's action would be sufficient to condemn our entire species for all eternity?
Our inherent quest for knowledge. Our curiosity. Our desire to understand. God creates us with an inherent longing for…Continue

A new website sponsored by the Tennessee Newspaper Network makes easy work of comparing the current gubernatorial candidates' positions on various issues. Each candidate presents a different opinion on the subject which is a welcome departure from the typical party-lines talking points that tend to dominate discussion.
Sadly, the debate between evolution and intelligent design is…Continue

Where you can ride 'the Leap of Faith' swing. Well, after they reopen, which will be once they get enough money to pay the taxes they 'forgot' to pay.…Continue

I’m amazed and delighted at the many replies my column “Sick and tired of God-Stuff “ received. While I don’t want to gloss over the wonderful and much appreciated compliments from other non-believers, I found the replies from theists to be downright eye-opening in some cases.
One prolific writer, Mr. BPE,…
Recently, Bus Stop Bible Studies has begun a new campaign in Toronto. These new ads show some adolescent person looking distressed and lost, with a tag along the lines of "Do I need to go to church every Sunday?" and a push to visit AnswerMe.ca, where you can view an FAQ about God, and ask whatever questions you may have (moderated, of course). I've asked some; it will be interesting to see whether they publish them.…Continue

...and believed every word of it!
If there were inconsistencies within or without, I credited that to our finite understanding of the infinite. We would understand it "by and by."

Hundreds of early human fossils, artifacts and forensically re-created faces of our prehistoric relatives have gone on display at the National Museum of Natural History, exploring 6 million years of evolution. The nearly $21 million Hall of Human Origins marks the 100th anniversary of the Smithsonian Institution museum and represents the most comprehensive look at human evolution since its…Continue
Happy slightly belated 201st Birthday to Charles Darwin.
Darwin was a kind, compassionate family man who led an exemplary life. It’s been said that he had the “single greatest idea ever”. It changed the world. The one thing that Fundamentalist creationists are right about is that…Continue
