Some funny and interesting comments about Pot Story essays, Part I

I’m thinking of renaming the first essay “Cardinal Ratzinger and Chaos Theory” to

“The Story of the Moron and the Mouse”

Ever wonder why there’re no clergy listed on the National Sex Offender List?  To my mind the first story gives a plausible explanation.  It also tells how the cards are stacked against the poor and working class.  In 1964, W. Bush was admitted to Yale with inferior grades as a “legacy student.”  As you know, I’m not religious, but this…

Letter to Joan Denoo

Joan, thanks from your encouragement on Pot Stories.  I'm writing a little summery of each piece and I'm really having fun just going over this stuff.  There're 27 separate pieces, each with its own information and lessons to be learned.  And the diversity of history and thought.  All for three bucks. 

True story: I was in a Manhattan Blarney Stone bar drinking fifty-cent beers. It was the mid-'80s.  I got involved in conversation with a reporter for the New York Post, which…

Superb Reading List for Atheists

It’s by the Humanists of Sarasota Bay.  The reason it’s so superb and wonderful is that Pot Stories of and Humanist Essays of Barbara Walker and I has just been added to the recommended Reading List—to me, anyway. 

I’m really honored to be in the company of such important authors.  I made the joke:  if the majority of Americans read these books it would it would knock modern “In God We Trust” society on…

High School with Rudy Giuliani

 

Here's my latest eBook, kinky and fun as ever.  Plus it brings our a serious national problem that we all should be concerned about.  As always a five-dollar purchase will help me continue buying ads on Atheist/Nexus to support our important website—to go along with…

A Compilation of Biblical Quotations by Barbara G. Walker

BIBLE MORALITY (compiled by Barbara Walker)*

Barbara gave me this list last year and said I could with it as I wish.  It’s copyrighted in the epilogue of Mirror Reversal, but I decided to share it with A/N friends and readers.  I love it because it’s so conspicuously “whacky and bizarre” that you can hit your religious antagonists in the head with their own beliefs.  After reading this list, the only rational conclusion, (I feel anyway) is that the…

An Anecdote on Deuteronomy

Steph, I was just thinking about that piece.  All Barbara did was read the Bible and use a  magic marker on all the stupid and/or crazy quotations.  It’s beautiful in its simplicity.

Here’s a favorite of mine I was thinking about:

 

Deut. 25:11,12 - A woman who seizes a man's genitals, even to defend her husband from an attacker, must have her hand cut off.

 

What weird, sick mentality could come up with a moral directive like the above?  Let me…

Man Made God by Barbara G. Walker

I just posted this review of God Made Man by Barbara G. Walker on Amazon Reviews. I'll see her next Thursday and I'm anxious to hear what she thinks. I hope the Amazon editors don't think I came on too strong.





If I would have read this book 50 years ago it would have changed my life. Now that I'm…
