The Islamic Propaganda Machine Churns On…

Islamic propaganda is hardly new. Islam has been presented to the West as peaceful and loving for decades, but it has always been and continues to be a false view of Islam. Ever since the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, and the sight of Palestinians and other Muslims celebrating the destruction of the World…

The Purpose Driven Blight

There is a belief amongst the faithful that religion gives them a reason for their existence, as is evidenced by the wildly popular book by Pastor Rick Warren, “The Purpose Driven Life”.  In spite of the millions of copies sold, along with related journals, bible studies and small group curriculum, the belief that religion can give you…

No Sex, Please…

Christian fundamentalists in the United States live in a world obsessed with sexuality. By and large, they are hostile toward most forms of sexual expression. Censorship efforts and attempts at sexual repression come almost exclusively from religion.  When one breaks down the resistance to humanism, secularism, post-modernism, relativism, feminism and other non-religious ideals, it always comes down…

Debunking the Myth that Atheism is a Religion

It is suggested by many people that Atheism is a religion.  Applying the definition of religion toward atheism is an oxymoron and I concur with others who have come to the conclusion that the religious are are so caught up in their own beliefs that imagining another person without having any religious beliefs is largely incomprehensible to them. Either that…

Boobs and Bud: Legislating Morality

Here in these United States there lies an obsession with pleasure.  And not the good kind, either.   I blame Christianity, and rightfully so.   Do you know what the textbook definition for insanity is?  Allow me to enlighten you…  Insanity is repeating the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result every time.   Such…

Doing Good Without God

One of the most common points that is brought up to me when I am discussing god with a theist is morality.  Almost as frustrating as trying to explain what a theory is according to the scientific community is trying to explain secular morality. The theist believes that god is the only source of morality…

The Incompatibility of Christianity and Science

The universe is a funny thing.  Really. With all that we have come to understand about the cosmos, there is much we do not know.  Richard Feynman, one of the greatest minds in the field of quantum mechanics said, “If you think you understand quantum mechanics, then you don’t understand quantum mechanics”.  Our universe operates…

Against Abortion? Then Don’t Have One…

Before my inbox gets filled with reminders that I said I would not write about this ever again, it should be known that I am writing about it again because my inbox was filled by people asking me to.  Abortion is a subject that I rarely touch upon because, as I have stated, I do…

Resurrection: The Oldest Urban Legend

Today is Easter Sunday. It is the Christian high holy day that has been set aside to celebrate the resurrection of their god-born savior, a tenet which is central to their faith. If there were no resurrection, the human sacrifice known as the crucifixion would be the end of a failed mission. The cycle of…

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…
