I don't really want to stray into politics, but as the election draws near, please indulge me this once - at least until the next election season. I apologize for the ranty polemic.
Modern Conservatism is an utterly failed, worthless, bankrupt ideology whose policies have led to utter disaster and offers no solutions to any of the problems that confront the modern world. In place of solutions, modern conservatism has degenerated into an incohate mass of anger, rage,…Continue

I couldn't help myself last week, when a man was coming through the attraction i worked at, at ScreamPark and yelled "Do you think God would approve of this?" I stopped for a sec, looked back over at him, using his phone to get through, pussy. So i just walked up behind him and said "Of course not, thats why i asked the magical fairy. He said go for it, so im with him now!" And just walked off, he got so pissed that he went to find me, screaming "God will not forgive that comment, he will…Continue
The Myth of Original Sin does far more evil than merely inverting our inherent desire for knowledge and understanding and turning our greatest and most beautiful attribute and turning it into a means of debasement. Perhaps even more vile, the Myth of Original Sin seeks to replace our greatest attribute, our rationality and understanding with Faith.
While there is an extensive epistemological discussion on what constitutes Faith elsewhere on this page, the brief summary is…Continue

Few Religionist traditions are more patently offensive than the myth of Original Sin and its dogmatic progeny, the myth of fallen humanity. What is our Original Sin? What is our great, intractable failing? What was our deep vileness that was so abhorrent that a SINGLE human's action would be sufficient to condemn our entire species for all eternity?
Our inherent quest for knowledge. Our curiosity. Our desire to understand. God creates us with an inherent longing for…Continue
My mother-in-law loves to say: “maternity is a matter of fact and paternity is a matter of opinion.” Opinions about the parentage of Jesus expose the origins of his story in Palestinian…

I haven’t posted in a while. To be honest with you, I’ve really found nothing that has made me want to “post.” But in the last couple of days, the election of a Senator in Kentucky, where Rand Paul is running has caused me to want to post.…Continue
Thanks to the wonders of searchable databases, locating specific provisions of the seminal religious texts has never proven easier. What used to be a cumbersome task requiring a Concordance is now the work of a few minutes at a computer. As a result, building a textual case against Biblical Morality, or against Yahweh or Allah as the Greatest Conceivable Being has never been easier. These seminal religious texts explicitly endorse slavery and describe in tooth grinding detail how to purchase…Continue
You Luscious Sin…Continue

From Netflix, I just watched 8: The Mormon Proposition and was outraged at what these pompous fuddy-duddies are getting away with. They are causing needless suffering and even death, all in the name of their whacky religion.
Several of us were having a conversation the other day about stand up comedians who had died. I was saddened by the previous days passing of Greg Giraldo, and had also mentioned Bill Hicks and George Carlin, all my personal heroes. I admire the qualities of such great, freethinking minds. One particularly dull member of the conversation, only recognized Carlin's name. He immediately went into a rant regarding Carlin being "allright", but really lost his audience when he went into the…Continue
