While many reasonable adherents do , to one level or another, believe in evolution. Why should evolution have any bearing on religion one way or the other? Some of these levels of belief range from belief in
“micro-evolution” to accepting most of the concepts and ideas of
cosmological and biological evolution, in view of an absent watchmaker.
So, what scientific reason can evolution have with such a seemingly
strong opposing view against it? After all, in March 2009, a…

Poobah Self Disclosure: I'm an atheist. You may be a Christian...not that there's anything wrong with that.
America is an unhappy place these days. Opposing forces not only bludgeon each other bloody, but as…Continue
Looks like newly elected Oklahoma State Senator is getting a real education in foot in mouth disease. Since his editorial has been posted in The Durant Daily Democrat on December 22, 2010 there has been
national reaction in the forums blogs and other places as well. Sadly it
looks like we [none creation people] are going to be the losers in this
battle. If you have been keeping up with my blogs you know that I have
mentioned the idea that those that are faced with facts…

I perceive sad aspects of life that I do not like to admit to myself. In the face of death, we will do anything to survive. Our morals fall apart at the threat of non-existence. There is no such thing as truth or knowledge or progress. We are slaves to causality; to chemical compulsions that feel like our own doing. We will never understand our origins, our purpose, or our ends. Such questions are pointless, and decisions that would be motivated by their answers are…Continue
While I was in the Army, stationed in The Republic of Panama, I started getting involved with hermeneutics. I was stationed there for 15 months and had a lot of free time to fill. I studied using The
Amplified Bible that was given to me as a gift from a good friend of
mine, in addition to other study books. Here is a quote from the web
site of The Amplified Bible about why it was made; “It attempts to take
both word meaning and context into account in order to…

a little conversation from facebook I just had to post, after I pick my jaw up from off the floor.
J. I am totally blessed. Literally everyone in front of me where getting flights out on the 31st and Jan 2nd. I even thought of renting a car and then I prayed. My turn and the agent said there was one seat on a flight to Atlanta in 6 hrs from Boston . Delta would pay for the 2-3 hr taxi down. Then in Atlanta there was an 11pm flight to Nashville . I took it.…Continue

It has been good to see the mostly positive reaction to the ill-conceived comments of Oklahoma State SEN Josh Brecheen. If this man is looking to make a name for himself, he
certainly is. He put an editorial in the local paper from his senate
district, The Durant Daily Democrat. In addition to the uproar over
several things wrong with attempting to try to have creation taught
in public schools, the comments in the newspapers website have…

I found this on, I Heart Chaos, and just had to share. It is hard to comprehend that the believers don't have any issues with this stuff.
Yes they do. I don't hate them, but there is something in them that makes me feel sort of uneasy.
I have counted myself among those without religion for quite some time. I'm pretty open about it and I'm always eager to talk about it when the occasion is right (which isn't all the time, of course). So, as much as I'm open about it "in real life", I'm open about it online. I don't hide my name, nor my face and whoever wants to find me online can do it with a couple of clicks.…Continue
I asked my family this weekend why they as Christians feel it is OK to lie to their children about Santa Clause. I explained that, to me, it seemed quite hypocritical that one of the Christian tenants is not to lie, but yet in celebration of the very beginning of Christianity Christians lie to their children about this man who brings toys. The answer I got was because it brings so much joy to the children. So, is it one of those "ends justifies the means" types of…Continue
