As a humanist, it is often difficult to remain mute when Christian religionists start quoting the Bible to support everything from bad weather to alien sightings. Since the Bible is its own proof source those ignorant of its roots have no idea to its authenticity or lack thereof. One need not go very deep into the…Continue
So, I listened to a little bit of Dave Ramsey today on talk radio because, well, conservative talk is about the only option in East Tennessee, and I usually prefer talk with which I disagree compared with bad pop and worse rock. If you don't know who Dave Ramsey is, he's…Continue

Beck goes and makes a comparison between what appears to me to be an ill-cast Satan character in the History Channel series, "The Bible" and Barack Obama. Here's a side-by-side:
From Beck's perspective, this was just another opportunity — he doesn't really pass up any —…Continue
A few days ago I completed a particularly distasteful task of reading a book that defended American slavery based on "biblical" evidence and opinion considered to be factual. Trying to read the interminable 590 page tract from a point of neutrality never was a consideration. I expected to read a long list of apologetics, justifications and excuses for the enslavement of other human beings and I was not disappointed.…Continue
Ok, so it goes without saying that I think the Bible, the Koran, the Torah, and all other religious books should be considered fiction. Now, how the hell do I convince others of this?
We were having a discussion at work (i am a teacher) about fiction and non-fiction. A student asked a teacher if the bible was fiction or non-fiction. The teacher said the student should ask his parent. I thought that was a cheap ass answer, I mean the kid deserves a straightforward…
First off, I'd like to say that if anyone could give me hard evidence of the existence of
a goD and this evidence could be tested by Scientists and proven to be true then I
would crawl through 100 miles of razor sharp glass just to kiss goDs feet. Simply
put, I am open minded to a certain point. The bIBLE can not be used as hard
evidence because it is a book of stories written 2000+ years ago, by humans that
were very ignorant of the reality around them. Plus, many of the…
I know I'm behind the times but, I just saw the Debate(?) between Matt Slick and
Matt Dillahunty. I have to admit that Matt is Slick. I don't know about other people but,
their debate, to me, was weird. Slick appeared to try, exceptionally hard, to win the
debate through confusion and get Dillahunty to admit something. See I'm confused.
But, true to form, Dillahunty slammed Slick at every point. But Slick seemed unable
to absorb the Logical, Rational and Common Sense…

1. Fathers and Sons
Over the past few days we've really gotten to know each other better. He's been tested and currently places on the mild end of the ASD scale (I'm likely right there with him) -…Continue

I just finished reading the personal diaries of Eve and Adam - you know, the original humans. It would appear that Mark Twain discovered the original manuscripts and succeeded to translate the ancient hieroglyphs somehow (perhaps he used a top hat) and published them to the world. I will be…Continue
So yet another victim from the non-mental health funding republicans all the way back to Regan. He knew there'd be this crap happening what with PCP, LSD, whatever pills, angel dust.. coke.. (all man made like god and all fail people)
I wonder now about the validity…

After 34 years, Bishop Benjamin Arreak and a team of Canadian Bible Society translators, including Bishop Andrew Atagotaaluk, have completed the project of a lifetime: translating the Old Testament to make a complete Bible in…Continue

After the famed “Scopes Monkey Trial,” it might seem the state of Tennessee would avoid doing anything that put religion on display in a public place. Apparently, no wise men reside in the state because an old truism says, "a word to the wise is…Continue
The complex of beliefs and rituals surrounding Easter and passover make it so complicated and strange that the farther I go from religion the more it confuses the hell out of me. During my Catholic youth, I…Continue

Back in February I made the first post (Teaching Religious Mythology 1: Noah's Ark) of what I intend to be series on introducing different religious stories to kids and what resources are out there to help accomplish…Continue
To receive religious signature lines in business e-mails from third party vendors is simply so inconceivable to anyone I know at my company that when I began receiving them I had to share with my colleagues. They were just as surprised as I was.
What do you blog about when you don’t feel like blogging and don’t have anything to say? The Bible! Nothing like a bit of Bible study to get you going right? Right.
I thought that today, I’d go back to the beginning. You know, this bit:
1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
I think even some Christians might recognize that line. It’s the first line of the Bible (the King James version anyway…). And I know…Continue

I know everyone here knows the answer is yes, but I am writing this for the ones that have not figured that out yet.
