Craig's List Ranting

Sometimes I like to visit CL - parts of it are like a Springer episode in words. And sometimes I like to post something to get people all riled up - and to make myself feel better. It's very cathartic! Lately, with the 40th anniversary of the walk on the moon, there have been quite a few posts about it being a hoax. So in response to those posts, I posted this:



I'm just curious as to how many of you, hoax supporters and non-hoax supporters alike, buy into religion? Because THAT is… Continue

The Bible Ladies

Back when I was still basically a Christian but starting to question things, we moved from AZ to AR. My daughter started kindergarten in a tiny school, and all was going well until she started having dreams about Satan. I had never told them about Satan, so to hear of her nightmares, in addition to her recent propensity for pointing out who was going to hell in certain TV shows, was alarming to me. Upon questioning her, I found out who was filling her head with such fears: The Bible Ladies.… Continue

My Big Dream.

I've had this dream ever since I noticed a little subdevelopment go in south of our town. Within a short amount of time, it had a state sign announcing it as the town of "Saddlebrook". I was aghast that this tiny little spot could suddenly appear and call itself a town, with the state's blessings (!) in such a short amount of time! And you can't even see any houses! Just roads! (I'm sure there are houses somewhere....like over the hill or something...surely....).



So that got me… Continue

My first Mormons!

We've lived here 10 years without a visit, and 2 days ago, they finally came. Well, one of them visited, the other was visiting the Reformed LDS guys across the street. My clean-cut visitor sweetly enquired as to why I was an atheist: was I mad at God? Did something happen? One event? I told him that it was a process of educating myself and actually READING the Bible - it is so full of contradictions and downright lies. He agreed, "Yes, it IS full of contradictions, isn't it?" I thought to… Continue

Revenge

Over the past several years, we have had several people really f us over. We had the "pastor" and his wife rent from us - they let a 2 month old baby die in the house (prosector said the baby had not been fed or even touched in 12-15 hours), they didn't pay us rent for many months, and they trahsed the place beyond repair. We had to declare bankruptcy over that one. Then there was the Christian business owner, who f-ed us for 30K (I talk about that in another blog). We are still trying to… Continue

Essay on 2012

I'm writing an essay on 2012 - Doomsday, where I talk about the variety of reactions leading up to the date.



I have done a bit of research on past Doomsday events, and thought I would share the section pertaining to religion. This is just a rough draft, I have some more ideas I plan on adding, and if anyone has any other ideas on how people will react, religiously speaking, I'd sure like to hear them!



OK. Here's the section:



"Highly religious people are… Continue

Apathetic Atheists

I have two atheist friends who are annoyed at my anger and my need to keep up on things regarding religion and atheism. I orginally thought that it was because both of them are pretty much self-employed recluses, and thus they aren't subjected to a whole lot of Christianity. They don't have to watch co-workers say prayers before meetings. They can put Darwin fish on their cars without fear of reprisal. In fact, they have told me, barely hiding their irritation, that I really shouldn't be so… Continue

Plenty of Fish

I came across a non-Christian dating site called Plenty of Fish. Now I have been happily married for over 15 years, and I can't imagine life with anyone but my husband, but I was curious about this site that claimed to use some type of algorithm to match people up. With my husband's knowledge, I signed up for an account, stressing that I was happily married and looking for friends. So far, I've received about 4 messages. They all say basically the same thing (they're married, but "looking for… Continue

Nothing's Too Hard for God

So you know all those billboards the Assemblies of God church has been putting up? Well, I decided to visit their site, where I came across a prayer center. I penned a little prayer for them based on something that is actually happening in our lives right now. Here is what I wrote:



"I'd like you to pray that we recoup the $30,000 that an Assemblies of God member bilked us out of (right here in the town of the Assemblies of God headquarters). Pray that we don’t lose our house to… Continue
