Local Pets Blessed At Church

DETROIT - Metro Detroit pet owners brought their animals to the Historic Trinity Lutheran Church in Detroit Sunday so they can be blessed.

Pastors and the Detroit Tigers mascot PAWS were on hand to bless all different kinds of animals including a calf and chickens.

Many churches across the country blessed animals as a tribute to St. Francis of Assissi, who is regarded as the patron saint of…

Mondo Diablo Episode 216: Betty and Barney and Carl





This is the story of Betty, Barney, a Dachshund, and their abduction and rape by SPACE MONSTERS FROM OUTER-SPACE. Most of it is told by Master of Mystery and Horror, Carl Sagan. So you know it'll be scary!

The hypocrisy of "love thy neighbor"

They preach to their choirs about values to pander for votes... but when it comes to a matter of a necessity to life and well being... the Governors of Alabama, Florida and Georgia fall short of practicing such values. WoodyBass.com

One, Two and a Few Sentence Movie Reviews

It has been a crazy couple of weeks and writing has not come easily so I just threw together these short reviews of GI Joe, Julie and Julia, Away we Go, and Aliens in the Attic as well as a complete review on District 9.



Aliens in the Attic


After an hour of dimwitted dialogue, the alien planet the antagonists hail from becomes a viable option to escape the mind-numbing effects of this movie.



Away We Go

A surprisingly mature look at love,… Continue

Me, Robert Wright, and Francis Collins sittin' in a tree

Hello once again!



It's been a while, and I just wanted to do a quick post to highlight some recent work at my Examiner.com column, where I'm the DC Secularism Examiner.

Sex and Religion in Manila.

Jacqueline Sarah Homan sent me a very disturbing video about Sex and Religion in Manila. I haven’t been so pissed off at the Catholic Church since Brother George failed me in religion and spoiled my academic record. With 90s in the NYS Regents in science and math, I was turned down by two universities because of my apathy and animosity to Catholicism.



Years ago in Mirror Reversal I… Continue

The Prejudice of Christians

AN: Am I asking for it? Read this here or at Good Reason News





This is a little out of character for this blog, but this guy from the New American, whatever that is, really needed a logical spanking. You can see several of my posts in the comments there, but I warn you, someone on there… Continue

Chariots of Iron

My interview on Chariots of Iron Podcast came out today. I talk about The God Virus and Recovering from Religion. Eli, Mark and Lamar really did their homework and had great questions. I think we explored the Civil Religion idea better in this forum than in any others I have done. Having three guys interview is a trip. It was more like we were all sitting around the table with a beer and having some good laughs. The interview portion is in the last half of the podcast.

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Review: Action + Action + Action + Action + Action



When a subway car is taken hostage, it’s left to the dispatcher to save the passengers from the gunmen. Packed with action and sprinkled with emotion, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, based on a book of the same name by John Godey, is a satisfying action-packed escape.



Walter Garber (Denzel Washington) is directing motormen through the tunnels of the New York Subway when armed men take control of a train. Ryder (John Travolta), the leader of… Continue

Mayan Doomsday 2012 - Part Two - Man is Made of Corn

In part one of these articles the Mayan calendar was explained and shown to be lacking knowledge in some areas. If you are the type of person who ignores practical common sense solutions to problems and answers that are right in front of your face (and I know that there are quite a few people like this) then please ask yourself why you should consider the Mayan prophecies to be true in the first place? Hindus believe in reincarnation, many gods, and… Continue

asleep in God

My reply to The Cost of Religion thread



Because of God a people slept

For God they conquered

Mothers wept

For king and country under God

Over they innocent they trod

Yea, there were those to question "why?"

In public did those people die

God gave the rulers holy right

Land of the Lost Review - American Cheese

Dr. Rick Marshall, bent on proving his crack-pot theory, is literally dumped into a land with dinosaurs, distant primates and evil alien overlords. Land of the Lost suffers from a lack of comedic timing, outdated effects, pitiful editing, and painfully shallow writing, but offers plain silliness as a consolation prize.



Disgraced and outcast, Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Farrell) is inspired to finish his work by graduate student Holly Cantrell (Anna Friel). Using the newly finished… Continue

Fruits of the Spirit

Come on over to Angie the Anti-Theist where I muse on the good old fruits, and how an atheist doesn't need any ghosts to be joyful, peaceful, loving, kind, good, patient, gentle, and self-controlled. Faithful is another story.

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

Two Kinds of Non-Theists

There seem to be two kinds of non-theists. The first kind (type 1) are those who were raised that way. Their parents were not religious and didn’t teach or encourage religious participation. The second (type 2) are those who were infected early in life and had to endure religious indoctrination and intimidation through their most formative years.



These two groups often have difficulty understanding one another. Type 1 non-theists often think religion is just to obviously ridiculous… Continue
