Proof Atheists MUST be In League with the Devil! (sarcasm)

(Relax. The title's a joke.)



I lived in Saskatchewan for seven years during my elementary and high school days and it seemed like a fairly normal place.  A little too normal - okay, maybe a little on the boring side.  It certainly wasn't overrun with demons when I lived there.

Well last week a story ran about a man who carved the…

Bubbles In Space (Where is NASA?)

It turns out that anyone can reserve a ticket with the private space exploration company Space Expedition Curaçao  to orbit for $95,000 USD.  That's less than…

Note To Self: Giving Christian Street Preachers Fake Money Bible Tracts Makes Them Mad

I found a fake bill Bible tract last summer and blogged about it.  I had it on hand and figured a Christian preacher would appreciate it.  

Here's the calculus that unfolded in my mind.  I figured I didn't need the bill any more and this guy was preaching to people on the street.  No good…

Teaching Religious Mythology 3: Easter, Passover & The Pagans

Editor's Note: I threw out my back awhile back and ended up in a hospital waiting room yesterday, so I wasn't able to get this post out then.  Better late than never.

The complex of beliefs and rituals surrounding Easter and passover make it so complicated and strange that the farther I go from religion the more it confuses the hell out of me.  During my Catholic youth, I…

Christianity's Holy Symbol if Jesus (Supposedly) Came At Another Time in History

Well today's Good Friday when we're all reminded by Christians about the bloody crucifixion of the almost certainly fictional Jesus Christ.  So I thought I would write a seasonal piece about the topic that disregards why…

If I Had A Million Dollars

Last night I went to my fridge to get some soy milk for my coffee (lactose doesn't agree with me) and I noticed a 1,000,000 dollar bill fridge-magneted to the door with all the other stuff.  I had put it there last summer after I found it while walking in the park near the river at the bottom of our street.  Young Christians were wandering the park with…

Long Live Al Jazeera

Surely 20,000 atheists descending onto the National Mall in Washington would be a spectacle worthy of some news coverage.

With a groan I realized I was wrong.

“Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one's soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are…

Religious E-mail Signatures - At Work

To receive religious signature lines in business e-mails from third party vendors is simply so inconceivable to anyone I know at my company that when I began receiving them I had to share with my colleagues.  They were just as surprised as I was.

Are you a good person? Part: The Third

Awhile ago I was handed a religious tract in a Montreal Metro station.  I thought it would be amusing to react to it on my blog. 

It started out as a kind of joke, but it's starting to feel a little like work now. I thought it would be more funny but instead it's kind of sad.  Well, let's take this old dog out back and finish it…

Creeping Canadian Theocrats (Are Creeping Me Out)

In my latest blog post I touch a little on the state of state-church separation here in Canada.  Also included is an introduction to the ultra-conservative bible-based Christian Heritage Party and one of their videos that infuriates me.

Thank you so much if you drop by:

Teaching Religious Mythology 1: Noah's Ark

New blog post:

I have a 2 year old son. I'm interested in different ways of exposing him to as many religious mythologies as possible. I would love him to investigate, compare and independently ask questions about religious claims as a freethinker. First in a series.

Go here to read the rest.  Thanks for coming over and reading if you do!
