Judas: Sinner, Saint, Or Catalyst?

I read an interesting article on CNN the other day by Craig Gross. For those who aren't familiar with Craig, he's a pastor and founder of xxxchurch.com, which helps fight porn addiction. The article he wrote was entitled "Is Judas In Hell?" , and you can read it here:…

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious

Most of my mornings are filled with top 40 hits of pop music as I commute to work, kids in tow. This radio station is a clear favorite for all of us with its variety, and usually I can ignore the music and let the kids enjoy a little be bopping before going to school. Recently though, we discovered that on Sunday mornings there is a half hour of…

The Best Larping Around: Religious Services

Let's talk about a past time I thoroughly enjoy now and then.



LARP.



For those unfamiliar, LARP is an acronym for Live Action Role Play. Essentially, a bunch of similarly minded folks get together and collaborate to have fun pretending scenes out of their favorite movies, books, comics, etc. This is strictly pretending, of course, but with rules involved. The basic goal of LARPing (yes, you can make the acronym a verb, how cool!) is to create a desired fantasy environment… Continue

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest

For many, many years, I have always found an unending fount of devilish giggles whenever I read sappy church signs. You know, the ones that are thought up by the honorary witty member of the church congregation that plays on puns, abuses homophones, and loves to dabble in sappy poetry attempts. What better way to market a deity than…

A Few Thoughts On The Whole "What If You Go To Hell?" Scenario

We have all had that conversation with friends, family, and even in our own minds have pondered the validity of the "What if you go to Hell?" scenario.



Images of devils, demons, exposed human flesh to flame, faces twisted in torturous poses, evil looking imps in observant reveries of delight. The overall themes being rejection, exile, physically unbearable pain, retribution, and guilt. Through many belief systems, Hell is a common thread that most agree upon.…

NWO, Illuminati, Blood Moons, And Hot Dogs: Practicing Political Atheism While Living In A Zealously Theistic Country

It seems over the last decade we have more things to be afraid of.

Between the advent of engineered disease, and surreptitious attacks of mind boggling computer viruses that could potentially bring down banking systems globally, it would seem we need to look at everything we…

Intellectual Dishonesty And Being Certain Gods Do Not Exist

There is nothing more aggravating than being in the middle of a discussion about the parameters of what constitutes a God, and another atheist in the discussion says to you,”You are being intellectually dishonest by saying deities absolutely do not exist.…

Why You Can Be Certain Deities Do Not Exist

Whether you used to believe in Jesus or Yahweh, Mohammed or Allah, Krishna or Zeus, I can assure you that none exist. I will even take you further than that and guarantee they do not exist. It is all about your perception of the concept that a god/goddess is. Not a…

Buddhism created Christianity!

It appears highly probable that the teachings of Buddha, in the form of Greco-Buddhism which was picked up and spread by Hellenistic groups associated with Alexander The Great around 300BC assisted in spreading many of the Buddhist philosophies throughout the Hellenistic world of which the so called birthplace of Jesus Christ was included.  So it was extremely probable that Jesus (if he existed) had knowledge of such Buddhist philosophies.  Something Christians had wrongly denied by…

"Gut Feeling" or "Intuition" is a well developed open-minded connection with one's subconscious, the "God" experience

I don't believe that "Gut Feeling" is exclusively highly developed among persons without a formal education in science. There are many examples of self-educated persons who have a highly developed sense of direction that is not consciously derived.  In fact, I think a person educated in science, who is also a free thinker, will have an even higher developed and more sharpened "Gut Feeling".  The label may be the more eloquent "Intuition" or "ESP".  

In the same way that you may…

Am I Frankenstien or what?

I know I am not the only one who has thought of this, in fact I have pondered it before but with no real revelation.  This morning is a little different though.  Let me be clear, tho I am against teaching any religion period the hypocrit in me gives me thrills to think of it.  On the other hand, the psychological...science/social part of me can see real intelligence of the affect of my thought.  So here it is, in order to create more atheist thinkers teach that God is a woman. Please laugh…

An Atheist at Dinner

Here you are. You have been invited to a family, political or even social gathering where you share, with a more or less familiar crowd, food, drinks and laughters.

Whoever you are,…

Hell is not moral

When a theist starts to babble on about how god is moral there are a lot of ways to shut them up. One of my favorites is to talk about hell. at a first glance hell seems like jail, a place where evil people go. But when you think about it you can make hell seem not moral without even using the bible agents the… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 290: Christmas for Mutants





Well folks, this is the home stretch. Christmas is headed towards that glorious week before New Year's, where everyone except shoppers who wish to bring their children with them to vex me and give me a headache are relaxing, eating turkey sandwiches, and watching sports. May you all enjoy something good next week; maybe some depressing foreign films? Or you could be like Francois and I, and make it a… Continue

To Believe or Not to Believe that is the question

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.

Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures.

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of teachers, elders or wise men.

Believe only after careful observation and analysis.

When you find that it agrees with reason… Continue
