The Bible Is Always Right, Even When It's Wrong 

 Over the years I've had many disagreements with non-believers over the credibility of the bible in regards to everything from the reality of Genesis, to weather or not Jesus wore closed or open toed sandals. I am proud to say I have never been wrong in this area, except the one time I thought Jesus mentioned something about not toilet papering your neighbours house, during the sermon…

An Epicurean Answers Habakkuk's Questions

It's rare to encounter a prophet who acknowledges the powerlessness of his gods to bring good, destroy evil, and fix the world. Rarer still to find one who acknowledges the evils that religion brings upon humanity. Habakkuk is one of the lesser, little-known prophets from the Old Testament, and one who bore witness against his own god and questioned him about the existence of evil, injustice, and suffering in the world. His disappointment is typical of those who …

Answers In Genesis Creation Museum Legal Discrimination Practices In Hiring

Earlier this week, I received one of my usual spammy job listings emails. You know, the head hunter types that have job potentials to check out since my “skill set matches what the employer is looking for.” Naturally, I never look at such emails because I am completely satisfied working for the postal…

I reject reading the bible makes atheists

I hear the beloved atheist saying again and again, "you just have to read the bible to become an atheist" or some version of that saying. If this where true we would already have less Christianity for even though lots of Christians don't read the bible all the way, lots do and justify all manner of illogic, injustice, insanity, violence, rape, slavery and murder. Likewise I don't value this saying much because I think lacks universal truth. I can agree it could help some thinking Christians…

The Bible Should Not be Tossed Aside Lightly.

The bible is not a book that should be tossed aside lightly. It should with the respect deserved be powerfully thrown into the garbage with the greatest intentions. I did this very thing to the expensive onion paged leather bound gold embroidered bible I once so proudly clutched with all my life as a Christian until going to college and seeing the light in 2006. Long live reason and evidence. People can get or keep a bible if they wish. I never will do so or any other holy book. If I want to…

Unethical and Unjust gOD

Here are a few examples allegedly handed down by the unethical and unjust gOD myth of the bible.


Anyone who goes uncircumcised is to be exiled from his people (Genesis 17:14).


If a man has sex with a menstruating women, both are to be exiled (Leviticus 20:18).


A man who marries a mother and daughter must burn in a fire (Leviticus 20:14).


If two men have sexual relations, both must be put to death (Leviticus…

No Tattoo For You!

For the last few months, I’ve been scrimping away money to restart my tattoo collecting. I currently have three altogether, all from different shops in my area, and out of the three who did the work, I decided to return to one in particular. I liked the artists that worked there, and trusted their professionalism so…

RFRA Convert! I'm so Christian now!

My apologies for being late to the RFRA party. I've been busy with work the past couple of weeks. At first, I was disappointed with RFRA passing in Indiana, but after seeing this article on the Church of Cannabis, I am inspired to go back to Christianity. In fact, I'm going to start my own flavor:…

I am an atheist bearing witness to atrocity of hate-mongering by people of the bible

People tell me that god is the god of love and justice. I read in the bible that truth will set me free. I also read a list of lies, distortions, delusions that rival any of Brothers Grimm's fairy tales. I read and see murders, genocides, obscenities to match any pornography of modern authors and wonder if anyone who believes in god has ever read this sacred book. I watch as people who claim to be full of love and compassion carry signs declaring hate for women's right to control their own…

When Secular Children Fly Solo At Church

This weekend was a personal test for my parenting. As an atheist parent, I am pretty adamant in presenting both sides of an argument and using context when discussing religious belief with my kids. The only confirmation of how fair of a job I am doing is when the kids end up in awkward…

Paradise Lost?

Let me begin by saying there are many blogs on this site that deal with the topics of religion and atheism in a serious and insightful manner...this is not one of those blogs.

When it comes to art, literature and music I have no problem with the idea of poetic license. Metaphors, symbolism and wild flights of art. However, when someone claims that the story they are telling me is historic fact, then the literal and practical…

Slavery in the Bible

The right to own slaves runs deeply in our history, creates traditions that benefit some while harming others. The moral teaching of the bible supports slavery in both the old and new version. To pretend that christianity supported abolition of slavery is to deny history and delude oneself into thinking that the scriptures are a fit place upon which to build…

Prayer, Does god answer prayer?

Promises that Jesus makes about prayer in the Bible:  

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. [Matthew 21:21]

If you ask anything in my name, I will do it. [John 14:14]

Ask, and it will be given you. [Matthew 7:7]

Nothing will be impossible to you. [Matthew…

Bible verses religious people don't mention or preach about + art for the verses

Have you all checked out "Awkward Moments Children's Bible" yet? It's an Amazon award-winning book and concept. No, I don't own shares of this book or are related to it's creators but I really, really LOVE the whole concept asnd I often share the illustrations on my Facebook page. I'd like to see the author put the art+verse on the backs of T-shirts (large design so easily read) as I'd proudly wear that in public to get people to think - I'd even purposedly stand in lines and position myself…

A New Snippet From "Christ's Rebellion"

The trip to Capernum had become disastrous. Looking over his shoulder beyond the massive crowd of would be students and desperately ill citizens who had traveled many miles to just touch Jesus’ robes, Judas saw a small detachment of town guards waiting for them. These…

The Book Of Life

I have been often troubled by the many mortal human attitudes and behaviors many different deities have taken on in various holy texts. Petty emotions like jealously, bigotry, hate, anger, and lust, to name a few. All of these…

Refresher Course In Work Place Prosyletizing

Over the course of the past two weeks, I have undergone training courses at my new employer's office. Typically, you get to meet everyone you will be working with, and I had a couple days of shadow training. Essentially, I was riding along side my trainer, watching how she…

If you can't do your job, due to your religion, should you have the job???

I was standing in the check-out line at the local Walmart (in Central City,Ky) when the line was stopped.  The cashier refused to check the lady ahead of me because she was buying beer.   Me, being me, asked what the problem was? The clerk said she couldn't scan the beer because "It"s against my religious convictions".  So the lady with the beer, and I, had to wait until a manager was called up to scan the beer onto the ticket. 

I laughed about it.  It's so outlandish!  So, the…

Finding Purpose Without Religion

A fellow Bunch member of mine, Ben Kervin, recently said he was "surprised" that he was feeling a lack of purpose thanks to his deconversion to atheism a couple years ago:

It's great to be free from the superstitious thinking I once had, but sometimes wonder how god belief gave me an overall…
