Money Changers in the Temple

I denounce those spiritually bankrupt men-of-the-cloth and their bag-of-magic and superstitious tricks. I castigate these Lilliputian men-of-the-cloth who have become wealthy by manipulating their exploitable-and-expendable groveling devotees. It is difficult for me to hear the insufferable ranting coming from a toxic sinkhole of midget minds. These modern day money changers in the temple. These Christian predacious and parasitical money-grubbing men who became cash cow…

Sinister Ministers

John Calvin was that acerbic Huguenot having a self-righteous homilectical preaching that human nature is completely corrupt and sinful. There exists an entire host of modern day unsavory elite-and-aloof pejorative preachers who have a fear of human nature. There is a real cesspool of apopletic preachers with their apocalyptic messages aimed at their subservient followers. Sinister ministers of diminutive moral character the likes of Ernest Angley, Jim Bakker, Franklin Graham, John Hagee, …

Doctrine of Original Sin

The history of most early religions formulated a dualistic split between spirit and body. This split put us above the Animal Kingdom. It made us superior to other creatures in Nature. This superiority of humans led to an anthropocentric view of humans. This dualistic split lead to the natural bodily instincts of humans as being inferior. This horrendous vilification, desecration, denigration, and contamination stance against human nature is due to a religious fear of human instincts. This…

Holy Particle Physics! God is a Quantum Mechanic!

Planck (h) is angular; Denke (hbar) is action;

hbar = quantum of action = 9.670554000 x 10^-29 erg-s

h = quantum of angular = 6.626070150 x 10−27 erg-s/rad

hbar = quantum of action = 9.670554000 x 10^-36 kg-m^2/s

h = quantum of angular = 6.626070150 x 10^-34 kg-m^2/s-rad

CGS

--

k = hbar*c/(4pi)*e^2

k = 9.670554000 x 10^-29 erg-s * 2.997924580 x 10^10 cm/s / (4pi) * (4.803204712 x 10^-10 esu)^2

k = 1

e^2 = hbar*c/(4pi)*k

e^2 = 9.670554000 x…

Man-Made

The excerpt that I have here is from Chapter 19, from my book,  "Balanceology: The 4M's of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation."  Balanceology.net welcomes guest posts.

Man-made - I have heard the argument made that without the knowledge of our impending death religion is not necessary. Are religions based on a fear-mongering of the Triune Mystery concerning death? Is a religion’s main purpose to help self-aware human beings cope with our knowledge of death?…

Jehovahs Witness Church ignores my friend at his funeral. How would you have responded?

 Perhaps my friend did want to be ignored at his funeral and I am simply being selfish and not honoring his wishes. If he choose not to have much mention at all but by name at his funeral then that brainwashing pisses me off. Did I just make it about me and my loss? Was I insensitive to him? Any way you look at it the loss of my friend bothered me, the way his church handled it angered me. Was I the one out of line? How would you have reacted?…

A new semester

A new semester starts for me next week. I am now a sophomore. More nutrition classes, more science. Also, I am taking math and Italian, so it is going to be pretty busy.  And, I am starting in work study this semester. I have worked part time and gone to school before, in culinary school. I think I can handle this.

I am glad I am half done with this associates, but am now…

Reacting to the "Religious Liberty Task Force"

Apparently the Trump administration is so utterly in the pocket of the Religious Reich that they feel as though they can implement policies which are so blatantly bigoted that they beggar belief.  That to me is how I feel about the Religious Liberty Task Force which was unveiled this past Monday, 30 July, 2018, by Jeff Sessions.  Their intention is apparently to assist in justifying discrimination by Christians, which they see as being motivated by their faith.  Not only does this fly in the…

Why God Must Remain Hidden

The biggest problem religion faces in hawking its wares is that its primary product – god – is unavailable for examination, mostly because it doesn’t exist. Yet religions continue to insist with zealous ferocity that their god is out there and that it must be acknowledged, worshipped, and obeyed. As a primary result of this, the game of religion necessarily becomes a shell game, which has its deity hidden behind mysteries and obtuse dogma and holy books which require interpretation for…

Taking on the Generative Stage of Life, Waiting to die

The next step in this progression from birth through death, I am at the closing-down-my-home-of-42-years-stage!

A friend asked my daughter who was moving; her reply: 

"My mom has 40+ years of items that she kept, all well organized though, plus mountains of paperwork from her business and teaching and giving speeches, and genealogy records from both sides of her parents dating back centuries, and old photographs…

Answers to questions from a student of apologetics.

A question about origin: Where did I come from? Where did the origin of life come from?

(JBH) We do not know. Those who know the most about biochemistry say that at present their best guess is that the first replicators were RNA strands on the edges of undersea hot-water vents, when the chemistry was quite different from what it is today. Research into this question is continuing.

Sarah Huckabee-Sanders on the stripping of children from their parents | Gott Mit Uns

In a rather testy exchange today reporters grilled the White House Press Secretary about the current administration's decision to move from a civil to a criminal stance regarding people crossing the US/Mexican border.  By classifying this as a crime it allows the ICE agents to separate the children from their parents. You can listen to Session's decision…

The Virtues of Guilt

NPR’s Morning Edition today featured a story about a belated Japanese apology for the mistreatment of American prisoners of war during World War II. But the apology was not from the Japanese government, nor was it from all of the many large Japanese corporations that had used American POWs as slave labor during the war.  Only the head of Mitsubishi Materials had the courage to expose his company to the “eternal shame” of admitting what his predecessors had done, and his representative…

The Disturbing Final Goal of Westworld

My wife and I have been following HBO’s Westworld since its first episode last year. We’ve “met” Maeve and Teddy and the Man In Black, and of course Bernard and Delores, along with many assorted others, and followed their adventures in a complex milieu which makes the original 1973 film look like kindergarten by comparison. Indeed, a shocking event which terminated the first season would have led one to believe that a major and possibly insuperable monkey wrench had been thrown into…
