Jesus Christ Superstar

I have loved the rock musical Jesus Christ Superstar since it's release in 1970 when I was 8 years old. It was the first time I encountered a mainstream entertainment that questioned the authority of the Gospels. It was written as a secular work with Judas showing an audience the "passion play" while commentating on the unfairness of fulfilling a prophecy and then being damned for it. Anyone alive at the time of it's release will know that it caused a furore resulting in the complete… Continue

Pope Benedict gives GodTube the Finger

benedictsays3 Well it seems that his arse-Holiness is teaming up with Google to produce his own channel via YouTube. Reuters had this to say:

The Vatican will soon have its own channel on the video sharing site YouTube where the Catholic faithful or the curious will be able to see Pope Benedict or…

Windows 7 beta...My thoughts

So I finnally installed windows 7 on my computer...and I have to say, I like what I see.

There is a nice difference between this and Vista, the task bar is easier to deal with and I do like the way that I can view all of my tabs that I have up in my browser window while the window is closed. This is a nice usefull change, considering that in vista, being able to see an image of a window you just closed seemed kind of stupid to me.

I do like the way everything is catagorized now with… Continue

AND GOD MADE MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE

So say the texts which Jews and Christians consider holy.



When you make something in your image you make it look like you, right? This would mean that the Jewish God responsible for the creation of man looks exactly like an ancient Jewish male.



This might need a little modification since there is some dispute over whether the creation god was Yahweh, El, a committee of Elohim gods or some combination of these. There is also the question of whether the responsible god was… Continue

And I Thought Oprah and Dr. Phil Were the Antichrists

I don't believe in the antichrist of course. But parasite rick warren could fit the bill if such a thing existed. You'll find a video of the slimeball himself (so you can see how uncharismatic he is) and more at HDC. A previous post on prayer and a bit of other info on this creep is here… Continue

Okay weekend warriors, get your pens out . . .

There are now TWO religionist replies to the letter below, which require rebuttal. I’m again asking for activist atheists and humanists to make either a quick note or a detailed critique to a letter to the editor of my local paper. Both the humanist starting point and both (off-topic) theist replies are included. I invite others to post similar letters so that others can help out. Even a short note is valuable if the editor receives several of them. Please post your letters here when you have… Continue

End of an Error... I mean Era

David Letterman has over the past few years ran a special segment on his show called "Great Moments in Presidential Speeches." With Bush getting the boot this coming Tuesday, he showed his last segment this past week. In addition, he showed some highlights from over the years.





I think many of us will wish the outgoing president a speedy exit, and hope that the door does indeed hit him in the ass on the way… Continue

I'm Coming Home

So after a year living in Northern California, by San Francisco, I have decided to move back home.

My mom moved to SC so I decided to move there. I have a brother with Down Syndrome so I am gonna move him in with me hopefully so we can have fun. My other brother has type 1 diebetes but has played in the world series of… Continue

Atheism and Europe have their roots in Christianity claims Vatican

This is my first post on this site and not wholly sure whether best to post a blog or forum post or start a group! Anyway, no doubt I'll find my way around.



I've written an article on Atheism and Europe have Christian Roots claims Vatican on my own Asylum Joy blog. Would appreciate some comments on this, as well as possibly some votes on StumbleUpon. Actually, on this last point am slowly… Continue

CRACKING UP WITH THE CRACKER WHACKER

PZ Myers has done it again. He has quite a habit of doing it.



A recent entry in his Blog is not only funny in its own right but has resulted in a lengthy and highly hilarious interchange among blog followers. I would strongly recommend that you find an hour or so to devour it. I suggest that you refrain from drinking while doing so. It is dangerous to your health to drink and… Continue

gimme a G!

The following has been a topic of conversation that has come up several times with me, and my fellow atheist friends recently. The capitalization of God/god. Being an atheist of the angry variety, who is disgusted by all that is holy, I struggle with this decision frequently. Of course, capitalizing God makes me feel as if too much importance is being placed on this nonexistent, society ruining entity. BUT God is a proper noun. Proper nouns call for capitalization. Not only am I passionate… Continue

"Land of the -cough- ....Free?"

This is something that has been weighing on my mind and recently when I had the pleasure of speaking to a rather well-articulated English-speaking illegal immigrant (which, forgive me for pulling out a rather judgmental little stereotype, seemed to be a rare occurrence) who brought up the concept of 'False American Freedom', did I realize I have a wide variety of opinions on this matter. Which I've reluctantly decided to discuss, despite the fact that there are more than likely a few 'blind… Continue

God in OZ

G'day world,



As an Australian I have always been proud of the lack of religion in our land. In 1973 Gough Whitlam, the Prime Minister, declared a full seperation of church and state.

In 27 years of hairdressing with conversations all day I have rarely encountered anyone of "faith". I professed my Atheism at 18 to very little surprise from my family and with no repercussions, despite my Mother being a teacher in the Catholic Education system. She gave me The God Delusion for… Continue

Australia Secular?

I often like to think that Australia is for the most part a secular country that is open, multicultural and accepting of different views, religions, lack of religion. Out of all the places on the face of the planet that I would expect us to be be able to display atheist ads it would be here.
For Christ's sake even the Italian's have been able to put a slogan on the side of a…

some of my faves

being a muso and not letting a day go by when i dont prance around in front of a mirror with a can of deodarant as a microphone (possibly too much information) i've thrown a few faves onto my page...



the "Smog" track is a song i play on a daily basis and always reminds me of who i am... its a stripped down sad song but always re-affirms my atheism for some reason... and fills me with hope.



the steve Earle is a strange one but somewhere within its words of faith there is an… Continue

Quotes

I'm sure most of you guys know these but they always raise a chuckle and make me nod with "holier than thou" approval...



1. The fact that a believer is happier than a sceptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality. - George Bernard Shaw

2. Faith means not wanting to know what is true. - Friedrich Nietzsche

3. I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. - Frank Lloyd… Continue
