God is a woman? Gender identity, biological sex and the trans man Godess.

Just a small thing that has troubled me for some time - it may seen like a joke, but I'm genuinely curious.

 

In the catholic faith (the only one I know), god is always referred to as a man (He, the Father, et cetera...) and the only woman prayed to is Mary (not a godess, but as the mother of Jesus, son of god). This always appeared to me to be a way to make women into second class members of the church (that and a whole lot of other things in the catholic…

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…

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:

I'm trying to get as many people reading my journal, from both ends of the spectrum. Discussion and debate are encouraged!



So far I've read up to Genesis chapter 12. I hope to have chapter 15… Continue

Eden: Entrapment?

Inspired by a discussion with a Christian friend of mine and this video:





This is a continuation of the argument presented in the video. When presented with this argument most theists will argue that Adam and Eve did know good and evil or that they simply knew not to disobey God, and that should have been enough. However, upon closer examination of Genesis, I don't think either of these arguments hold up. You see, I don't think that God's words are clear… Continue

Crumb Does Genesis

This October an author, familiar to those who were “of age” during the drug haze called the 60’s, Robert Crumb, will have his new illustrated book, Robert Crumb's Book of Genesis, on the bookshelves. Those familiar with Crumb’s cartoon humor and sideways view of society’s icons and norms, can anticipate with glee how he will treat the Book of Genesis. Needless to say that Crumb is an Atheist.

Subversive US cartoonist Robert Crumb, whose take on the Bible is about to be released… Continue

It Burns! [Genesis and Cattle- Part Adam]

So apparently an Atheist with the Scriptures in her hands is as lethal as a vampire falling in a lake of holy water. But the internet Bible sites aren't cooperating with me so here we are. Heehee, my book has zoo stickers in it.



I think most of my blog posts will be things that are semi-obvious to the Atheist, but the purpose of this blog is to organize my thoughts in an indestructible moat of heathenism. Also, to mildly entertain those who read it. Thus I will try to keep it… Continue

Look At Me, Momma. I Got A Blog!!

Actually, no. Don't look. You don't know I'm an Atheist yet. . .



Now, since this is the beginning of my blog... I think... I should probably start at the beginning. And naturally, at the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, riiiiight? :D



So I'll start at Genesis, and see how far I get before I get bored with myself.





First off: What up with Lilith?



It's impossible to get the full story unbiased or full, but I've known the basics for… Continue
