Terminator Salvation: I Bet You Can't Find The Plot Through All The Explosions



Terminator Salvation is a pre-sequel (or is it a se-prequel) to the previous three movies in the Terminator series. Atrocious writing, shoddy effects and lackluster acting made me wonder why they bothered to make Terminator Salvation at all.



Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) is recruited by Dr. Serena Kogan (Helena Bonham Carter) while on death row to be part of a mysterious experiment. Years later, Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) and Star… Continue

Conversatios with my Mother; part 2

My mom knows I'm an atheist and that I'm writing a book about her scandalous cult-leading mother. She's bothered by the first and okay with the second. We ended up in a really constructive conversation last night about religious extremism. I told her that I'm planning on marketing my upcoming book to "moderate christians" because I think they need to wake up and take responsibility for the crazies in their flock. Oddly enough, she agrees. She's on the "leadership council" and "planning… Continue

As expected, the U.S. military quickly denied that the video released on Sunday by Al Jazeera is evidence that our troops proselytizing Muslims in Afghanistan, claiming that what was shown in the video was an isolated incident, and that the… Continue

ANOTHER SINNING PASTOR

When a Christian decided to go soul fishing on the Unreasonable Faith site recently, his ignorance of the reality of non-belief and non-believers tripped him up.



Most Religionists are incredibly ignorant of what it means to be a non-believer. Fundamentalists of any brand are among the most naive in this respect. The gross inadequacy of their primary assumptions about the causes and characteristics of atheism is one of the reasons why attempts to reconvert the disillusioned faithful… Continue

This is a response to the question,"What brought you to atheism?"

This was a question that I was asked by another recovering Ex Jehovah's Witness:



[QUOTE]

you've briefly touched on your past a couple of times, but kinda glanced over exactly what it was that you were into after you left the JW world...

mysticism or something?

like Wicca type stuff?



can you tell me a lil about that...

what drew you to it?

and most importantly, what turned you off of it??



but seriously, i'd like to know what your… Continue

IS "CHRISTIAN WITNESS" RUDE BEHAVIOR?

Friendships with Fundies can be very taxing.



When I began my friendship with “Frieda” we were both members of an Australian Methodist church. I began studying for the Methodist ministry but the intensive academic study of the Bible led to me losing my religious beliefs. Shortly after that Frieda moved to a country town. The ensuing 20 year relationship has been continued, for the most part, by email.



When the Methodist Church joined to become part of the Uniting Church,… Continue

30 Days- Atheist woman spends 30 days with fundamentalist christian family.

I wasn't sure where to post this but I wanted to share it. It is a very good episode about an atheist woman from Kansas who is immersed in a fundamentalist christian household in Texas complete with weekly bible studies. It's a 45 minute video on hulu so the commercial interruptions are short. I'd love to hear your post-viewing comments.

5 Evil and Crazy christian Movements

christianity drives me nuts. I find it to be reprehensible in most aspects but here are a few issues that top my list at the moment. Please feel free to add to the list, and to include islam and any other religion. I found it overwhelming to even get as far as I did. It's rather depressing how evil it all is. See the list at HDC along with links.

Have a great day, my… Continue

"objective" morality and ugly christians. . .

From time to time, I may post a short blog detailing problems with theistic world-views. These posts are meant to be rants that exist largely for my pleasure. They are also meant to be non-technical and easy to follow, so you won't find a lot of philosophical mumbo-jumbo here. I hope you enjoy them.



One of the recurring arguments you will hear from theists [especially Christians it seems] is that without an external law-giver we can have no "objective" morality. For the sake… Continue

2 Types of Atheists

I believe there are two primary groups of atheists.



The first being the group who lives in harmony with religion; believing that all religions can tolerate one another and exist together. I also believe the 'closet-atheists' fit into this group.



Next is the group I fit into; the group who believe that religion is incompatible with human life and causes more problems than it solves. I personally believe that religions put up a wall for the advancment of human-kind. Even… Continue

that sucks..

I'm not 100% sure how to start this so I am just going to say that my father died from a motorcycle crash July 29, 1997; two days before my 12th birthday. He was not religious; I suppose I'd describe him as agnostic. He wasn't concerned with the afterlife but moreso with the now; his children in general. He was an absolute great father.



The first thing I want to say is that it irritates me when people say "I'm sorry" because that's not the emotion they feel. They usually have no… Continue

I'm getting so irritated (understated)

The atrocity going on in the Gaza Strip is a prime example of the poison of religion. The death toll is now over 600 including civilians. This is all because of a disagreement of religion. They want this 'sacred' plot of land. We're talking about the massacre of children in a UN school and blatant disregard for 'collateral damage'. People are losing their homes, families and lives over this trivial medieval idea of god. I know its asking a lot but it would be nice for these blind, brainless… Continue

99% of christians are hypocrites

Don't you love it when you can turn the tables on religious hypocrites? It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to be able to calmly tell them they are doing the whole christian thing wrong.

On Atheism

I like this, taken from the BHA:



Live your life based on humanity and reason and recognise that moral values are properly founded on human nature and experience alone. Base decisions on the available evidence and an assessment of the outcomes, not on any dogma or sacred text. Atheism and agnosticism is an active and ethical philosophy far greater than any negative responses to religion. Foster individual rights and freedoms but believe that individual responsibility, social… Continue

Open letter to Pope Benedict XVI

Tuesday 17th November 2008



Dear Papa,



I know you’re a well known defender of traditional Catholic doctrine and values, but there is a problem within the third World countries such as the Christian nation I presently live in. The Philippines consists of hordes of faithful Catholic followers that live in poverty.



The problem seems to be looked at the wrong way by you and your present administration… Continue

the history of the cross and its use by the christian church

In 1896 a man by the name of John Denham Parsons wrote a book on the history of the cross. Since he had been a young man several questions regarding the cross had puzzled him and when he was older he determined to try and and answer them for himself.



The first of those questions was why John the Baptist, who was beheaded before Jesus was executed, and so far as we are told never had anything to do with a cross, is represented in religious pictures as holding a cross.

It's more smoke bombs thrown up since we are at the end of the election.

I tried to clean up the spacing, but I wanted to maintain it's "integrity."
