A New Snippet From "Christ's Rebellion"

The trip to Capernum had become disastrous. Looking over his shoulder beyond the massive crowd of would be students and desperately ill citizens who had traveled many miles to just touch Jesus’ robes, Judas saw a small detachment of town guards waiting for them. These…

New Novel with Atheist Theme

I'd like to share the news that my novel, "The Holy Family," is now available in paperback and digital editions.

Dale McGowan, author of the forthcoming "Atheism for Dummies," had this to say about "The Holy Family": "'The Holy Family' is a rich and engrossing story, elegant and moving. Though it…

fiction or non-fiction

Ok, so it goes without saying that I think the Bible, the Koran, the Torah, and all other religious books should be considered fiction.  Now, how the hell do I convince others of this?



We were having a discussion at work (i am a teacher) about fiction and non-fiction.  A student asked a teacher if the bible was fiction or non-fiction.  The teacher said the student should ask his parent.  I thought that was a cheap ass answer, I mean the kid deserves a straightforward…

The Diaries of Eve and Adam (Eve the World's First Scientist)

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…

Don't blame "god's children"...

I've been reading a series of books by David Weber called the Safehold series.  Weber is an interesting writer.  I'm not really a "fan" as in I adore his works and all that but his books do keep one busy.  The plot of Safehold is complicated.  It begins eight hundred years before the main part of the story gets underway at a time the human race was at war with a race called the Gbaba that was determined to extinguish humanity from the universe.  Humanity was loosing the war.  As a last ditch…

A question for the community

I'm a fiction writer and I attack god and religion in my novels. That's not the main thrust of my sci-fi and horror novels, but it's a constant in all my books (3 1/2 so far). I'm still unpublished but hope that will change this year. So, here is my question.

I wrote a sci-fi novel that takes place about 50 years in the future. One of the characters in the book is the pope of that era. What name should I use for him? Ideally, it would be a name that religious folks see as possible for…

Old Warehouse

This started out as free writing but turned into something.

"Do you have it?" Red said.
"Yes." William answered, lifting a large duffel bag.
"Where did you find it?"
"Does it matter?"
"Yes."
"Well I prefer to keep that a secret. Do you have the money?"

Make your own creation myth

This is somethimg I thought would be interesting: Write a creation myth. It doesn't have to be the creation of this world it can be the creation of a fantasy world, alien world, etc. You can have one god, many gods or no gods.





Heres one for a story idea I had that would probably be allot better off as a game scrip.





In the beginning there was only void and from the void came Phoenix and Lóng. Phoenix and Lóng battled, from their battle came Air,…

I was dissatisfied with the existing chapters, the story wasn’t bad but the writing was terrible so I rewrote them.

Ficticious religious debate, Part 1

A: Ok, us two are here, here to discuss atheism vs. christianity...



C: *AHEM* excuse me, but you didn't capitalize Christianity just then.



A: Ummm...this is a vocal debate, how am I suppose to capitalize something when I am speaking it?!?



C: That's not what I'm hear for, but I demand you treat me with equal respect, just because I have faith doesn't make me a lesser human being than you!

Is Rupert Murdoch God?

This section is gonna focus on a quintessential aspect of British culture but one that strangely but completely shares the same principles and creates the exact same negative sociological effects as…well, i’ll get to that later, but this blog is all about that Great British Icon…The Sun…that’s the newspaper, not the really hot planet…just so you know…good.



The Sun is quite an enigma really. It has the highest circulation of any Daily English language newspaper in the world. It has… Continue

Darwinian Natural Selection in Today's Society

(Originally posted on my personal blog, BrainlessGeorge.com.)



I stand firm with my thoughts on Darwinian Natural Selection. I’m quite sure that it has happened in humans in even recorded history. I think that the technological advances, and forms of entertainment, all have implications of evoluation. Since the dawn of man we’ve been evolving and furthering our thinking.



Why?



To better survive in an ever changing… Continue

"ALPHA, OMEGA" - New Novel Exposes Religion as Addiction

SEATTLE, Washington—Fresh from the keyboard of science-thriller writer Lori Stephens, Alpha, Omega is—like Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code—fiction with a forceful message. The story starts with a corpse. A defector from a cult called Omega has bled to death, and the only clue is the book he’s clutching: the Librah Vae-ta, the holy scripture that the Omega founders engineered over a century ago. Dr. Gatsby Donovan resolves to help solve the bizarre murder. As she spirals deeper into the danger… Continue
