On Psalm 23

[Cross-posted from the Teapot Atheist]





Today I had the grave misfortune of encountering on Hemant Mehta's Friendly Atheist blog a video of a very small, rather unformed human being with not much grasp of her language or the subject matter to which she applies it babbling… Continue

“Hear No Evil” Filter for Your TV, or Voluntary Fascism?



Focus on the Family is teaming up with TVGuardian to provide clean entertainment choices for families through the TVGuardian filter, a device that eliminates objectionable language from television shows.

Penned as a “foul language filter” for HDTV’s, the device seeks to protect children not only from all foul language, but also from offensive religious slurs, sexual references, and…

In Which I Rip Atlanta's Apologist Examiner a New One on the Topic of Christian Education

Atlanta Christian Apologetics Examiner Terrence Albritton has penned an exhortation to good Christians to consider religious education "an order," not "a luxury." This is not an uncommon belief, especially among evangelicals and the far right. It is also a major point of contention for many non-believers, who claim that (1) religious "education" is really a euphemism for indoctrination and scare tactics, and (2) Christian education doesn't achieve measurably better societal or individual… Continue

Hell

hell is a place of suffering and punishment for those who do wrong, even tho as long as you are saved nothing u can do can get you in hell.

Someone who rapes and murders people every night for 20 years straight before getting caught and and put in prison for 20 years. he gets out after serving his time, but within 3 years he goes right back in for killing 10 people. Then this time he is given the death sentence will go to hell right? he will pay for his crime for what he did and will be… Continue

Would people remain Christian if Christians were outcast? An Easter Rumination

I always wonder how many Christians there would be if Christianity was frowned upon.  In the Easter services there are passages of Christ proclaiming his faith even tho others spit on him, beat him, despise him, and even kill him.  How many Christians would there be if they were treated like homosexuals in the 50's; or black folks in the deep south under jim crow? (Someone please tell me how to punctuate the previous sentence.)

 

What do you think and do you know anyone who…

Mondo Diablo Episode 301: How Would Satan Destroy the Human Race? He'd put Pants on Women





It's not Mothers' Day, but with all the daffodils and crocuses coming up, it just might be time to drag out a Mother's Day sermon. After all, it's Women's History Month, and this is, historically, what it's like to be a woman listening to this kind of sermon every year on Mothers' Day. Yeah, you get to hear about what an evil slut you are. I suddenly realize that it's pretty damned easy to find something… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 298: What is Your hidden Spiritual Gift?





This clip comes to us from Dave Grubin, who is in fact not an 80's tv action/adventure beefcake personality. He is a Vinyl Preacher, for all intents and purposes. He makes Christianity all mystical and New-Agey, while retaining that Ol' Time Religion. Who else can do that?



UPDATE!



Another way to listen to Mondo Diablo is to go to… Continue

Chapter Three; THE RISE OF SCIENCE part seven

As mentioned before, the level of my religious experiences could fill many pages. So, while there is much more to be said, most is going to be skipped for now. I am just going to touch on a five main areas of why Christianity lost its hold on me.



1.The age of rocks on the Earth and the amount of time it takes for light to travel through space couldn't be rectified with text in the Bible. The best answer I received was, “God put all the things there when he created The Universe.” This… Continue

I'm a little tired of God getting all the credit.

This is just a rant.  But it was brought into the front of my mind by something I saw recently.  It was "Letters to Santa" at the post office, and they were reading letters of some of those in need. It was heart wrenching, and one story in particular stuck in my mind.  It was a man, former military, unemployed, and struggling to feed his kids.  He talked about how he was scrapping for any small job he could take to make a little money, and then he thanked God for keeping his children…

Of course I would insist that any course on world religion or religion

Chapter Eight; THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD part thirty-two





Without a doubt Christianity is the largest team in the world. God has so blessed this religion that it can now be represented by hundreds of dogmatic denominations. Spanning from The Russian Orthodox Church to Shakers to Jehovah Witness to Episcopal to Westboro Baptist Church and all the variation in between. According to the…

Pascal's Wager 2 - Xeno's Wager

Xeno's wager






There is a well-known thought problem called X(z)eno's Paradox, or the Dichotomy Paradox. The essential base of Xeno's dichotomy is what I allude to, while the basic conclusions and premises behind the argument I push aside as they are not relevant.


The dichotomy is this, to travel any…
