My New Book

I wrote a book that was recently published called Have We Been Screwed? Trading Freedom for Fairy Tales. It's part autobiographical, part philosophical. Because I was raised in a religious cult, I grew up in a closed society. My father had a major conversion experience and then drug the entire family down the rabbit hole with him. He was convinced that the holy truth had been lost from the face of the earth and that he'd been handpicked by god to be the last prophet…

borderline

I’m too attractive to borderliners, I think. For the second time in six months a borderliner started to scream at me and attacked me with verbal abuse.

Asides from the promotion of ignorance, the embrace of intolerance, the perpetuation of fantasy, the encouragement of external reliance, the insistence of basing thought on dogma rather than fact, abetting belief in ghosts, gremlins and ghouls, the blatant demotion of women and its continued history of…

So, this year is a little more than half over. And, I decided it is time for a change.

Girls Trip/Dunkirk Movie Reviews

Girls Trip: Movie Review:

Where to start with this one is difficult. I was dragged to see it by my wife. Well, I’m glad she did. “Girls Trip” is an uproarious film filled with ridiculosity, nasty comedy and excellent performances by Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish.…

Adultery is a Sin?

“The aura of the theocratic death penalty for adultery still clings to America, even outside New England, and multiple divorces, which looks to the European like serial polygamy, is the moral solution to the problem of the itch.”—Anthony Burgess

That adultery is a sin…

Silk Purses and Sow Ears

 

When explaining Biblical contradiction Christian apologists and their explanations range from the sublime to the ridiculous. An apologist is a defender of the faith, the…
