fiction or non-fiction

Ok, so it goes without saying that I think the Bible, the Koran, the Torah, and all other religious books should be considered fiction.  Now, how the hell do I convince others of this?



We were having a discussion at work (i am a teacher) about fiction and non-fiction.  A student asked a teacher if the bible was fiction or non-fiction.  The teacher said the student should ask his parent.  I thought that was a cheap ass answer, I mean the kid deserves a straightforward…

Devine Transfers ... who knew?

You have got to be f'ing kidding me!  I just sat slack-jawed watching a con artist on BET.  The good Reverend Peter Popoff was just on.  Did you know that if you call his number he will send you his Miracle Spring Water (for either drinking or anointing yourself - your choice) and he will send you his special anointing tool?  All for FREE!  BUT WAIT! there's more! if you send him some "seed money" on faith of course, and you take all of your bills out and you pray over them, he will write…

Santa Clause is not real?

I asked my family this weekend why they as Christians feel it is OK to lie to their children about Santa Clause.  I explained that, to me, it seemed quite hypocritical that one of the Christian tenants is not to lie, but yet in celebration of the very beginning of Christianity Christians lie to their children about this man who brings toys. The answer I got was because it brings so much joy to the children.  So, is it one of those "ends justifies the means" types of…

He was sworn into office on the Koran! Bugger!

My dad (Christian) said to me today after hearing that a person had been sworn into office on the Koran, "That is so stupid! I can't believe they swore him in to office on the Koran! This is a Christian nation!" I silently thought, " I can't believe they use the Bible to swear people in all the time!"



You know, it's interesting, that a person can't just take an oath on their own - like their word is not good enough and is meaningless unless it is put on the bible (or Koran). When did… Continue

You Can't Leave Christianity

"You can't leave Christianity - if you think you can, you were never a believer in the first place." That was the comment made by a family member as we were watching CNN's interview with Ann Rice which had "Ann Rice leaves Christianity" printed across the bottom of the screen.



Of course I did not bite and begin this debate with him, because he does not know that I myself, once a very strong believer, have left Christianity. But, I did sit and listen to him chatter on about this story.… Continue

Ignorance

Sometimes I feel so ignorant. When I was in HS and college, I loved physics and science. It seemed that I understood the more difficult concepts when others did not. I loved it! It was so amazing to learn all of that crazy stuff.



Has science made some giant leap since I left college 9 years ago? I am watching Through the Worm Hole with Morgan Freeman and I feel like I am ON one of those planets they are talking about. I seriously have a freakin headache. Did I somehow become a dirt… Continue

The Temple of Deliverance Church of God in Christ

Holy $h!t. I turned on my TV this morning to see the Temple of Deliverance Church of God in Christ.



This is worth watching just to observe the unbelievable chaos that people subscribe to. Dudes in robes - main man is chanting in alteration with an organ/drum. "He will validate *organ hit* the little that you got *organ hit* whatever you got *organ hit* god can use it *organ hit* he can use your talent *organ hit* he can use your money *organ hit* whatever you got *organ hit* put it in… Continue
