I Hate Mondays

But it's not the usual reasons.  Or maybe it is.  In reverse.  Or whatever.

Mondays are the worst because I'm alone again!  The family is home on weekends.  Usually we have good weekends.  But then comes Monday.

My day so far:

- woke up real early, around four.

- made coffee

- woke the kids up after six.

- went to tell my wife good morning around seven as she got ready for work.

- told the wife and kids goodbye and watched, once again, as they…

Intestinal Fortitude

What the hell, I have nothing better to do today than speak my mind a bit.  I really haven't written anything at all anywhere in a very  long time.  So here goes...

The biggest problem with humans is that they're so godlessdamned chicken shit.  I mean really.  When human kind learned to think the first thing he did was recognize danger and he ran like hell.  And people are still running.  And hiding.  It drives me nuts.  This is the real reason I just quit and don't really give two…

If you can't do your job, due to your religion, should you have the job???

I was standing in the check-out line at the local Walmart (in Central City,Ky) when the line was stopped.  The cashier refused to check the lady ahead of me because she was buying beer.   Me, being me, asked what the problem was? The clerk said she couldn't scan the beer because "It"s against my religious convictions".  So the lady with the beer, and I, had to wait until a manager was called up to scan the beer onto the ticket. 

I laughed about it.  It's so outlandish!  So, the…

el or elohim?

As a humanist, it is often difficult to remain mute when Christian religionists start quoting the Bible to support everything from bad weather to alien sightings. Since the Bible is its own proof source those ignorant of its roots have no idea to its authenticity or lack thereof. One need not go very deep into the…

I make Christians look like 'Bad Persons'

At last, I have achieved my goal!

I recently had a comment exchange on Deviant Art:

http://pjarrett.deviantart.com/  (not a safe site, as my McAfee always reminds me...but they seem to have solved some of their problems...be careful, in spite of its name "Deviant Art" they allow underaged children to post right along with adults!  If you're leary of the site...which I can't say I blame you...try my other blog at …

The historicity of Islam and Muhammad.

Ibn warraq says that the historicity of Muhammad is doubtful :

  • Although the unreliability of the Arabic literary sources has been known for a century, only recently have scholars begun to explore its full implications, thanks largely to the ground-breaking work of the American scholar John Wansbrough.…

MARS One! Is it wise to allow theists to be among the first people to populate Mars?

http://mars-one.com/en/



Is it really a good idea to allow theists to start a colony on Mars? I don't think it has come up yet at this early stage, but given the god delusions horrific past, can we risk starting a Mars cult or risk its destruction with mixed religions?



Check out the website if you don't know what I'm talking about, and there's a good FAQ page too.…

Religion's Word Games

Human language is much older than 5000 years old. For all we know, religion is about as old as old as human language. We can all agree that religion has had a very long time to influence the evolution of human language. I say it is about time non-religious humans take control over the evolution of the human language.

I will give you just one example of what religion has done to our human language:

Think about the definition of love. When I say the word love, what am I talking…

Enough Already--They Ain't That Great

After the famed “Scopes Monkey Trial,” it might seem the state of Tennessee would avoid doing anything that put religion on display in a public place. Apparently, no wise men reside in the state because an old truism says, "a word to the wise is…

Mormons! I Smite Thee in the Name of Common Sense

Get a Brain Mormans Theists, I appreciate your prayers for my heathen soul, but there’s no need. Really. I’m an atheist. I’m good. And Mormons, posthumous baptism is even more than one step over the line. That’s even more unneeded, creepy, and unwanted – unless you want to modify that whole…

Quantum Mechanics

Quantum Mechanics, which is the study of the smallest elements and forces of matter and how they react and interact and create all that we know

All things are made up of Atoms both living and nonliving all matter is made up of Atoms. But now we know that an Atom isn’t the smallest thing in our universe of reality. We also know that electromagnetic force, or light hold electrons and protons together in Atom and which hold Atoms together to make molecules.

Jerusalem as an International city?

It seems simple, but it is hard to achieve.

We all know of the Religious killing each other over Israel and Jerusalem in particular. The Israelis have their state, the Palestinians want to have their own state. Lines have been drawn in the sand, nations of the world are backing either the Israelis or the Palestinians.  Fighting for Jerusalem has caused the city to be split into sections.

However, it seems that the answer is quite clear.

Why doesn't the UN simply make…

Opium of the People

Until a few days ago, I always interpreted Marx's famous quote "Religion is the opium of the people" as a metaphor.  



A few days ago, I changed my mind.   I was sitting at a bus stop and got into talking with the woman sitting next to me, who in less than a minute presented herself as a Jehova's witness.   Usually I avoid religious discussion as a completely futile attempt to get through the believers' delusion.   They believe, what they feel a…

If Congress truly represents us...

I received the following in an email, with a request that include it in a blog post. I thought it was worth sharing for its well thought out ideas that would be good for our country. However, when I expressed my doubts, to the sender, about the lack of members of congress lining up to jump on the bandwagon he had this to say.

It's a pipe dream. Still, there's no harm in spreading it around. The more people that see it, the better the chances that some of them will say something…

Omniscience is impossible

(Cross-posted from the Teapot Atheist)



Every Sunday, rather than offering commentary on a current event as I usually do, I present an argument from scratch, either against theism writ large or against some particular religion.



Among the many properties God is said to have (for reasons critically analyzed… Continue
