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 Land of the Lost suffers from a lack of comedic timing, outdated effects, pitiful editing, and painfully shallow writing, but offers plain silliness as a consolation prize.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

The "Daily Devotional" combatant

A few weeks ago I came accross a woman who decided that she would post her daily devotionals in what was then an almost entirely secular group in the sense that no one else had ever thought to post religous topics, though I still have no idea how many believers vs non believers there are in the group. The theme of the online group was "a few good women" and I would imagine she felt that in order to be considered a good woman, she would show everyone how strong her faith in god and Christ is.… Continue

ALARM, ALARM, THE ENDMEME THREATENS ALL LIFE

This is the sequel to “Why I Became a Militant Non-Believer” on this blog.



Humanity is in a race with itself and we're running out of time. The planet is in dire straights. Nature has given mankind the power of reason, and in return, like Frankenstein’s monster, humans destroy her with the power of science. The waste of billions of years of evolution is unbearable to contemplate.



It’s the arrogance and stupidity that’s so hard to take. Instead of blessing nature with joy… Continue

Finding Life's Meaning

Theists frequently make the statement that, without religion and God, there would be no purpose or meaning in life. It's somewhat offensive, but definitely misguided. I decided to philosophize about it a bit in my latest blog post at RationalityNow, if you're interested.

Cheers!

Is God Lying or Making a Mistake?

As most of you probably already know, the bible contains a lot of contradictions and inconsistencies. A favorite of mine occurs right in Genesis in chapter 2 when God tells Adam and Eve not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.



It's a great way to start of the bible... with a supposed omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent being either lying to Adam or making an error. Go figure.



For the details of my take on it, go to… Continue

Deconversion Story

Just a summary

...



Church to me, felt/feels like a chore. I know the people there will act so holy in church and when they are back home, they go back to their greedy lives. I've always noticed how women would wear their best clothes to church like it was a fashion show. I actually started questioning the bible when I was 12 or 13. I asked my sunday school teacher if the bible was completely valid or reliable after being translated so many times. His answer, I can't remember… Continue

INEFFABLE!!!!!!

I have to tell the world about this: I just saw the weirdest thing ever!!!!



But first some critical analysis for what was a seeming culmination of supernatural phenomenon. The event:



at approximately 10:40 this evening, February 19 (pacific time) a white utility truck (?) drove up the street with it's lights blaring in the surrounding darkness and the diver unscrewed the cap to a yellow hydrant, releasing all the water gushing out in to the road. That is weird right? A… Continue

waiting for armageddon

Speaking of doomsday, did you know we’re living in the end times? Yeah, I know, we’ve been living in the end times during the fall of Rome, the Dark Ages, Black Death and an invasion into Spain by Muslims as well as both world wars and the Cold War. But all the disasters, wars and epidemics are nothing compared to now. The end is almost here as it’s written in the Book of Revelations. Unlike the Mayan prophecy of 2012, the belief that we are the last generation on Earth isn’t just embraced by… Continue

Poll - Which Other Books Should President Obama Swear On?

As expected, Barack Obama did have to swear the Oath of Office a second time, this time in a more intimate setting with just a few of the press corp. However, some Americans may feel the new President has made yet another blunder by not swearing on the Bible. Amazingly, given the God-squad in America, not a bible was found anywhere near the swearing in. As the TimesOnline reported, one blogger snarled "Expect a third oath when bitter small town gun- and Bible-toting America finds… Continue

is evolution a repeatable science?

An occasionally used creationist tactic is declaring that evolution isn’t a scientific theory but a circular argument preached with the zeal of a religion. Evolution, they say, isn’t repeatable under laboratory conditions and if it’s not repeatable, it’s not science. Can we put evolutionary mechanisms to the test and show exactly how we can reproduce them in a lab?

Turkish creationist offering trillions to prove that transitional fossils are real is crazier than the media reports...

A Turkish creationist's stunt contest offering 7.5 trillion lira or $4.6 trillion U.S. is still open and will be for a very long time. But can you expect anything else from someone who thinks that evolution is a Zionist/Freemason conspiracy to enslave his countrymen?

Religious Atrocities History (Christianity Main Emphasis)!!

Christianity has been more of a threat to society. Let the historical record speak for itself...



Ancient Pagans



* As soon as Christianity became legal in the Roman Empire by imperial edict (315), more and more pagan temples were destroyed by Christian mob. Pagan priests were killed.



* Between 315 and 6th century thousands of pagan believers were slain.



* Examples of destroyed Temples: the Sanctuary of Aesculap in Aegaea, the Temple of Aphrodite in… Continue
