Coming out godless

One of my readers pointed me to an interesting project she started, called Coming out Godless. Her challenge is for individuals to talk about how they themselves began to understand that their belief of God was simply false. I visited it recently, and must admit I find the idea fascinating. I highly encourage people to go to her site and submit any story you find funny, tragic, or even educational. Persona ...

Conservative pizza mogul builds new Eden

I don't spend a lot of time wondering where my money goes when I buy food. I figure it's going to the employees, the owner of the franchise, and whatever is left goes to some obscure CEO locked up in an office, counting his money. I always figured these guys were like Scrooge; they made you work in the cold, giving you as little time off to spend with your invalid son as possible. It never occurred to me so ...

CNN attempts to debate atheism

I saw this video, and was unaware of CNN's attempt to discuss whether or not atheists were being discriminated against. Nevermind the fact that as a news organization; they are far more interested in making money from advertisers than in displaying any journalistic muscle, this so called 'panel' was populated entirely by individuals who were themselves believers. You might as well have a panel of southerner ...

Staring at the Sun heals (apparently)

Christian rationalist points blaming finger at atheists

Let's face it; we're used to being generally despised; it's so unsurprising, in fact, that when I fell upon this site, www.christianfaithandreason.com, I practically glossed over the familiar rhetoric of atheists are deluded and wrong. Had I done so, I would have missed the opportunity to read an article by the obscure author of Letters to a Christian Nation: Counterpoint. Although the title may sound lik ...

New look for the site

After much personal reflection, I decided it was time to put a little bit more effort into building a solid site. Although I did like the last look a lot, the truth was it was insufficient for my needs. The fact that people could only see 3 articles meant a lot of backtracking and clicking around for nothing. Instead, this layout will allow readers to quickly access any part of the site that they will feel ...

Pope backs Intelligent Design

If you want any solid proof that a Pope is as flawed, ignorant, and uneducated as the rest of us, look no further than Benedict XVI. When he isn't busy making controversial statements about Islam, he likes to take a breather by trying to dismantle evolution by means of Natural Selection by perpetually pointing at dusty old tomes. His latest blunder comes care of an off collar remark asking: "[h]ow many of t ...

How some choose to please God

Some people love the Bible. They receive a form of comfort every time they read a passage they like, and for the most part, it's a fairly innocuous habit. We should not forget, however, that the Bible, when taken as a whole, is an inadequate moral guide for modern society. Kenneth Cummings Jr. learned that lesson only too well, as he lay dying in his home in Pearland, Texas. His murderer, Mark Magnum, who h ...

How big is heaven anyway?

There are some people who behave in such a strange manner, and believe in such terrifyingly silly things, that you have to take a moment in your day to see for yourself the depth of man's delusions. This week, an interesting video was presented to me, where a supposed expert makes his predictions as to the relative size of heaven. His conclusion: heaven is about 7,000,000 times bigger than New York. At firs ...

A day to think about the meaning of freedom

I'm not an American. I live in Canada, and although our two nations share many things in common, our views of liberty and patriotism differ significantly. This difference is rooted in the past, and how our countries gained their independence. For Canadians, the sovereignty of our nation took the form of endless negotiation. By the time our country was properly formed, some 140 years ago, the British Empire' ...
