Carl explains why, and relates this artificially selected phenomenon with the theory of natural… Continue

Convert Or Die!



After this episode's initial airing, Warner Bros. received complaints from the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, claiming that the Spanish Inquisition game show sketch at the beginning, "Convert or Die!", was teaching children to reject Catholicism. Because of this, in reruns, that sketch was replaced with a newly-made one in which the kids think General Custer is running a custard stand, but restored when the episode was featured on… Continue

Scientific Explanation for Elongated Blog Pareidolia?

Blob Pareidolia

There was another Virgin Blob sighting, this time on a restaurant pancake griddle.



Restaurant manager Brenda Martinez says more than 100 people have flocked to the small town of Calexico on the California-Mexico border to gaze at the likeness of the Virgin Mary since it was discovered as the griddle was being cleaned. Among the awe-struck was a group of masked…

The Hellbound Alleee Show is coming back!

So, what do you think? I can't tell you precisely when this is happening, but soon. Francois and I will be doing our podcast again. We had a couple of years off, and I guess that's enough.

Of course, you'll be hearing the same old Mondo Diablo. I have waaaay too much music for a talk show.

A Dodgy-Dodgy Christian: Epic Email Exchange with Helen!

Hello Alleee



Sorry not to reply sooner. I'm glad to hear from you

because after I send my last email, I thought of a

couple of things I wanted to share.



God is not a monster. He weeps for you because you

understand and because you don't want Him, you

will perish ...unless, of course, you change your mind.



You make is sound like God is a monster, that He just

wants to chuck you into… Continue

The Brick Testament: now with Revelations!



I'm assuming most of you have read the Brick Testament. But if you haven't, it's really a legitimate way of reading the bible from start to finish. Of course, it's a work in progress.



From the website:



The Brick Testament is the largest, most comprehensive illustrated Bible in the world with over 3,600 illustrations that retell more than 300 stories from The Bible.…

Episode 195: Keeping the Faith





She wants, terribly, to believe; to be comforted. A man, recently a celebrity for doing good, decides that she will be the one he saves. It doesn't sound too hard, really. She needs to believe. So why does he fuck it up so badly?

Wow. A Good Email!

Hello I had an interesting discovery today when I found that a post you made in 2005 http://hellboundalleee.blogspot.com/2005/08/live-with-hellbound-alleee-and.html Referenced something I had written on my website.

10 Answers from an Atheist (Part 2/2) from Check Your Premises

Part 2



6. Meaning



In the atheist worldview we are products of time, chance, and blind forces - there is no objective meaning and value to our human existence. Yet our deepest longing is for our lives to count for something. We intuitively know that humans have rights and dignity.

Does life really have no point other than what you pretend for your…

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.

Recently Alison gave her answers to the 10 Questions for the Atheist from the web site LifeWay. Since I’ve answered this sort of thing before, I decided to have another go at it. But before we start, a word on their definition of atheism:
