Prohibition on Marijuana – Legislative Fail

There is legislation in California that is aimed at making the recreational and personal use of marijuana legal for anyone over twenty-one years.  Medical use of marijuana has been legal in eight states since 2001 and in California there are stores where you can bring a state-approved medical marijuana prescription card and buy your weed,…

Pondering Profound Passover Problems

The Passover Holidays are upon us, so what better time than now to explain how the entire tale of the Exodus was logistically impossible.  Of course, modern archaeology provides enough evidence that almost the entirety of the Jewish biblical history was fabricated, so let’s go with what the bible says.  Even if a “miracle of…

You just can’t trust those homosexuals

On Thursday, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced that the Pentagon will start to ease its enforcement of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy prohibiting homosexuals from serving openly in the military. Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway says he wants to avoid housing homosexual soldiers with heterosexual soldiers.  He stated, “I would not ask our Marines…

Christians Are Better off Dead

This is not my point of view, but that of an educated Theologian. Early this morning eleven people lost their lives in what is being touted as the worst wreck that Kentucky has seen in over two decades.  A tractor trailer operated by Hester, Inc., out of Fayette, Alabama, crossed the a median and smashed…

The American Taliban Strikes Again

We read about political violence every single day in third world countries.  One faction rises up when another one is elected into office or when an unpopular law is put on the books.  We have gotten used to these reports and have even come to expect them from certain countries.  Reporters expounding on death threats…

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

I don’t often write environmental pieces.  It’s not that I don’t care about the environment.  I am very concerned about the planet, actively recycle and end up in some rather heated debates with certain people who would just let the earth suffer a slow death because they believe that “any time now” god is going…

This Is What Change Looks Like

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed the health care reform bill at a vote of 219 in favor and 212 opposed. More on that in a minute.  It was a tense night for me.  Even my teenagers were watching the last few hours with me. For me, well, I was glued to C-Span pretty…

Pedophilia and the Catholic Church

Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday he is “truly sorry” for the abuse suffered by victims at the hands of Catholic priests in Ireland. He addressed the church abuse crisis an 18-page letter and it is going to be read in churches across Ireland on Sunday.  He says he is “deeply disturbed by the information which…

The Evolution of Morality

In my travels across the unending reaches of the ether, I communicate with a vast amount of people from different walks of life and worldviews.  Outside of my sphere of like-minded friends and acquaintances, most of the people I deal with have, to one degree or another, a belief in the supernatural.  They believe in…
