God is irrelevant

It is not essential to believe in God or in the historical Jesus or in Christianity. What resonates for me is a deeper meaning than prayers or ritual or litanies can provide. It is an awareness and understanding of who I am, personally, and professionally. It is in being able to think and reason and pay attention to what is real and distinguish that which is superstition or tradition. It is being willing and able to think of others, including other…

Why I want Rainbow Connection as my funeral song.

My husband and I were joking about what we want our funerals to be like when we die, however I got to thinking about one thing. The music. After all, music has been played at every funeral I've been to, and I want a song that isn't religious but something that is personal to me, which I realized is Rainbow Connection, the song I loved for years and always have burned onto a cd along with being on my Itunes. 

Why I want the rainbow connection played at my funeral (Lyrics first, then my…

Mondo Diablo Episode 273: Anti-Vacc is BULLSH*T!





You have to wonder, "What the hell are they thinking," but you can't put words in their mouths and mothers are sacred. Can you convince them that no one has died from prank tainted Halloween candy? Of course not. Because they are parents. And having children turns you into an insane person who is listened to by other insane people, the politicians, who govern our lives based on whatever batshit crazy… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 275 The Edge of Ol' Man Mose





Happy Mocktober, Everyone. This week, I have the episode "The Edge of Evil," from "Macabre," and a lovely array of recordings of one of my favorite spooky songs, "Ol' Man Mose is Dead." Interpretation of the words in that song is up to The Ear that hears it.

Mondo Diablo Episode 273: The Earth; She is Unmoved





I don't fully know what http://www.fixedearth.com/ is, and I'm not sure I want to spend all of my time figuring it out. In a nutshell, physics is wrong, Copernicus was wrong, Einstein was wrong, they were all Jews and Kaballists, and the Earth is the center of the universe.



And the guy recording these podcasts has a little imaginary friend or puppet… Continue

Freethought Quotations

“Fear believes—courage doubts. Fear falls upon the earth and prays—courage stands erect and thinks. Fear retreats—courage advances. Fear is barbarism—courage is civilization. Fear believes in witchcraft, in devils and in ghosts. Fear is religion, courage is science.”

My Aunt's Crusade, Part II

As discussed in my previous blog, the books my aunt promised to send arrived today. She sent me Josh McDowell's The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict and Answers to Tough Questions Skeptics Ask About the Christian Faith. I have just over three weeks off from college for the holidays and I hope to have the books read within that time. I will also be posting my thoughts, questions, and interesting quotes from the books on here for your entertainment.



Thanks to everyone… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 211: Meditations on Self-Awareness with Rev. Antonio Agpaoa





From the 365 Days Project on WFMU:





Tony Agpaoa was the man called the "Father of Psychic Surgery", the practice of curing the infirmed without scalpel or drugs, but faith in God. Many of these so-called healers have been shown to use slight of hand tricks to remove cancerous tumors of pig guts and chicken blood. Agpaoa…

Putt, still aiming for the green

(See, because it sounds like it's something to do with golf, but it's actually about someone called Putt trying to win money... Yeah, so I suck at titles.)



Well, it's disappointing, but shouldn't be surprising. It's taken less than three weeks for Patricia Putt, the psychic failure of a recent paranormal challenge organised by the JREF, to turn up in… Continue

Acupuncture works!

...just as well as not doing acupuncture! Now that's what I call a medical procedure worth investing large sums of money in and foregoing other clinically proven treatments for. You don't even need to actually do it for it to magically heal you! Hey, I wonder if we can make that work with… Continue

Episode 194: Carl Sagan on the DIstinction Between True and False Visions





Carl Sagan's book, "The Demon Haunted World," is as close to an "atheist bible" as you can get. Well, it is to me, anyway. Here I include the chapter called "On the Distinction Between True and False Visions," which deals with Marian apparitions.

A young skeptic.

I being somewhat a skeptic since very young. Although my mother is catholic, she's a 'light' catholic, in the sense that she thinks that there is a god, but he hardly has something to do with the universe we live in; she's something I like to see as a catholic-colored pantheist. My father, in analogy, would be a catholic-colored agnostic, he finds comfort in the idea and is attached to the festivities, but not very religious by himself.



There is a story told by my mother that, I… Continue
