Jacob vs Jesus: battle for God status

I found this website the other day, and thought some of you might be amused by what they are trying to 'prove'. This is a site obviously masquerading as scholarly, and asking pointless questions like: "Did Jesus lie when he claimed he was a God". That this question is even asked seems so ridiculous I don't feel the need to answer it. I shall, therefore, prove to all my loyal readers that I, Jacob Fortin am ...

Is the world ready for the death of God?

There are casualties in the struggle to answer fundamental questions about the universe. For a long time, it has been powerful religious institutions that have burned, sliced, chopped, eviscerated, and snuffed opposing world views that undermined their own. Some may claim the Inquisition and Crusades were political in nature, but it cannot be denied the strength of the Church's power and the continued desir ...

Obama talks about our god: science

As ripe and low hanging a fruit as it would be to pick, I'm trying to stay away from a few topics on this blog: people killing over religion abroad, and ignorant politicians believing in ignorant things. These two topics are so overdone you can't really look at a news site without reading about it, so I'll leave it alone. Yes, I'm aware Sarah Palin is the atheist equivalent of the anti-christ (well not real ...

MSNBC poll on ‘In God we Trust’

The Jacksonville Daily Progress has a short article on an MSNBC poll asking "should the motto 'In God We Trust' be removed from U.S. currency?": Of the 7,230,365 votes cast as of 11:45 a.m. Monday, 78 percent of those participating in the poll voted to keep the motto, compared to 22 percent voting to remove it from U.S. currency. "That doesn't surprise me," said Kevin King, senior pastor of the First Unite ...

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 ...

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 ...

God works in mysterious ways, especially at the lumber yard

Actors who play the title role of God have the sweetest roles. First, they always seem wise, paternal, all-knowing, and even a little smug. Secondly, they have the soft, epic choir singing quietly in the background. And finally, just when you think this God character is a real bastard, his infinite wisdom is proven, and the audience leaves home satisfied with the performance. And really, who could resist th ...

Just whose God are we debating anyway?

Debating God is tough work. For starters, in most circumstances, the audience is not on your side. Agnostics and atheists are the minority in a country where the population describes itself as either religious or very religious. Secondly, anyone debating against the existence of God seems to have the difficult task of trying to disprove the idea, rather than rightly asking any of the claimants for proof. Fi ...

Ripping people off in the name of God

Many readers on this site may be too young to remember televangelist Peter Popoff. The only reason I know of him is due in no small part to magician and skeptic James Randi. Popoff was a faith healer who achieved fame by making startling predictions about people's ailments during his church services. He was even able to recite their address, as though God had given him a cosmic phone. Obviously skeptical of ...
