What's So Great About Christianity?







What's so great about Christianity?

Not much in my opinion. Nonetheless and despite my atheism, yesterday I checked out the book by the same name from my local library. The author, Dinesh D'Souza, has a big task ahead of him. I think he may have bitten off more than he can chew.






In the book D'Souza (supposedly) reveals the following, which is laid out on the inside flaps of the…

Who is more stupid(or more dangerous) pope or Muslim mullahs?

most times when I compare Christianity with Islam I found it less dangerous and more tolerate-able . but some times priests and the Pope change my mind !

take a look at this New York Times article (his first statement about condoms)

Pope Says Condoms Make AIDS Problem Worse

here at least in Iran mullahs have no problem with condoms or other birth control methods or STD prevention .

How can… Continue

Is God Lying or Making a Mistake?

As most of you probably already know, the bible contains a lot of contradictions and inconsistencies. A favorite of mine occurs right in Genesis in chapter 2 when God tells Adam and Eve not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.



It's a great way to start of the bible... with a supposed omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent being either lying to Adam or making an error. Go figure.



For the details of my take on it, go to… Continue

Hypocrite among christians?

Sometimes I feel such a hypocrite...



Am I? The reason I ask myself this question and now put it to all of you is what started the last summer and continued until a couple of weeks ago.



During the summer I was working with a couple of guys at my college. Both of them really nice, a Japanese guy and an American of Lao descent. The Japanese guy, let's call him Taro, one Friday invited me to a party "for international students". I said sure, let's go. I hadn't gone to any… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt14

The 14th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Creation is evident”

By:Aron Ra



In May of 2007, former child actor, Kirk Cameron and fellow advocate of idiocy, Ray Comfort, promised to scientifically prove the existence of God on national television,



“100% absolutely –without the use of faith”.



Of course that didn’t happen. Religious beliefs –as everyone knows- are assumed on faith in lieu of proof and regardless of evidence. Cameron and… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt13

The 13th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Evolution is a fraud!”

By: Aron Ra



Ernst Haeckel was a pioneer zoologist and taxonomist whose numerous contributions to biology go largely unnoticed compared to a couple rather odd errors. First, he proposed that “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny", suggesting that embryonic development reflects the organism’s evolutionary ancestry. To illustrate this, he produced about a hundred drawings of embryos at various stages.… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt11

The 11th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Macroevolution has never been observed.”

By: Aron Ra



You share more traits in common with your siblings than you do with your cousins due to the recent ancestors you share with them, your parents. Deeper down, you share more in common with those in your extended family than you do with neighbors and classmates, etc., people you don’t recognize as part of your biological family. But you must realize that on some level… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt10

The 10th falsehood of creationism; “The evolutionary ‘tree of life’ is nowhere implied neither in the fossil record, nor in any aspect of biology.”

By: Aron Ra



Creationists often complain that science supposedly says there was only one universal ancestor of all livings and that along the way, we evolved both into, and then from, bacteria. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. 21st century revelations in genomic research now imply that the origins of evolution come… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 9

The 9th falsehood of Creationism:“No transitional species have ever been found.”

By: Aron Ra



When Charles Darwin published his landmark observations in 1859, he lamented that the fossil record was still quite poor at that time. It was only in the last century or so earlier that anyone had even proposed the possibility that a single species could completely die out, and the first dinosaur wasn’t discovered until Darwin was a boy. Fossils were known by previous… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 8

The 8th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Mutations are rare, harmful decreases in genetic information.”

By: Aron Ra



"Mutations are genetic disorders that occur in the DNA in a random and unconscious manner.

Like all accidents, they cause harm and destruction.



...The changes affected by mutations can only be like those experienced by people in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl; that is death, disabled, and the freaks of… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 7

The 7th foundational falsehood of Creationism: “Evolution is random.”

By:Aron Ra



“Do you believe in fate, Neo?”

“No.”

“Why not?”

“Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.”



Some say it is a contradiction to believe both in prophesy and simultaneously in free will –for they can’t really co-exist. Because if anything a time traveler does in the past might dramatically alter the present, then anything done in the… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 6

The 6th falsehood of Creationism: “Evolution-ism” (Part II) “Evolution must explain the origin of life, the universe, and everything.”

By: Aron Ra



It is fair to say that none of the people who deny evolution exhibit any understanding of what it is. But it's not always their fault because many of the people promoting evolution don’t know what it is either. Hollywood producers certainly don’t!



“Are they the next link in the evolutionary chain?

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 2

The 2nd foundational falsehood of creationism: Scriptures are the “Word of God”

By: Aron Ra



The 2nd foundational falsehood of creationism is the belief that sacred scriptures were written by a god rather than by the actual human authors. When believers argue over any of the many things which contradict their religion, they often challenge us to decide whom we are going to believe? The alleged “word” of God? Or that of Men? As if human inquiry had no chance against… Continue

Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism - Pt 1

The 1st Falsehood of creationism: “evolution = atheism"

By: Aron Ra



The U.S. population seems pretty evenly divided over whether the human species is biologically related to other animals or whether we were “specially-created” as part of a flurry of miracles. Even our collective politicians -seemingly all of them- are wrapped up in this controversy. Yet it is hard to find even one of them who know what it is about. Why is it that there is such concern in so many… Continue

Religious Atrocities History (Christianity Main Emphasis)!!

Christianity has been more of a threat to society. Let the historical record speak for itself...



Ancient Pagans



* As soon as Christianity became legal in the Roman Empire by imperial edict (315), more and more pagan temples were destroyed by Christian mob. Pagan priests were killed.



* Between 315 and 6th century thousands of pagan believers were slain.



* Examples of destroyed Temples: the Sanctuary of Aesculap in Aegaea, the Temple of Aphrodite in… Continue
