Poll - Which Other Books Should President Obama Swear On?

As expected, Barack Obama did have to swear the Oath of Office a second time, this time in a more intimate setting with just a few of the press corp. However, some Americans may feel the new President has made yet another blunder by not swearing on the Bible. Amazingly, given the God-squad in America, not a bible was found anywhere near the swearing in. As the TimesOnline reported, one blogger snarled "Expect a third oath when bitter small town gun- and Bible-toting America finds… Continue

AND GOD MADE MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE

So say the texts which Jews and Christians consider holy.



When you make something in your image you make it look like you, right? This would mean that the Jewish God responsible for the creation of man looks exactly like an ancient Jewish male.



This might need a little modification since there is some dispute over whether the creation god was Yahweh, El, a committee of Elohim gods or some combination of these. There is also the question of whether the responsible god was… Continue

2nd blog tonight! evolution and religion.

Now by the title I know what many of you are thinking. The difference in beliefs of the religious and evolutionists. Well not tonight. I have had my rant tonight so I'm going to convey what I believe and has evidence to substantiate this claim.



I personally believe that religion is a human evolutionary trait. If one believes in natural selection and survival of the fittest then we can move on from there. Well lets first consider the human mind. The human mind is so complex even in… Continue

No argument

I've lived the last year in San Francisco CA and am about to move back to SC. I encountered the same argument for the bible here that i have in every country I've been in. "Because the bible says so". That's not an argument considering the bible is NOT a historic record. For the majority the gospels written about Jesus were written 100-200 years after he died. That is not a historic record. It is as much of a record as Of Mice and Men. Studying actual historc documents there is no… Continue

Sex, drugs and rock'n roll! Oh, and beer. But no stankin' gods!

I am finally getting around to telling of how my atheism came to be. I guess it really did begin as a child. I must admit though that I have grown up in church surroundings and have not been an atheist all my life (or maybe I subconciously have been). I was christened as an infant in to the Catholic church, attended pre-school at a church, and have attended many churches growing up. I think I was more in love with the buildings and the architecture than god, or the idea of god. I think I just… Continue

Very Sloppy of Him

1. The more skilled a craftsman is, the less defects his product contains. [1]

2. The perfect craftsman is an omnipotent creator (a.k.a. "God").

3. God should therefore be capable of producing a creation without any sloppy defects. [2] This includes humans, of course.

4. At the organ level, the inflamed human appendix is an obvious defect of design.

5. Ergo, humans are far from being physically flawless. In behavioural aspects, Christianity largely agrees. [3]

6. One is… Continue

Time to modernise the Bible? - Athiests would do it much better.

Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus born 27 February 272 was the undisputed Roman Emperor from 306 to 324 to his death. He was the first Christian Emperor and in fact had a great deal to do with how the Christian religion was organized and its initial ceremonies.



In the year 313, he declared the Edict of Milan which proclaimed religious toleration throughout the empire.

He had great influence over the First Council of Nicaea and wanted… Continue

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

And god was born..

This is a basis of a story I am writing but first a bit of history about where I began.



I remember that I was in 4th grade and my teacher asked, 'What do you think about god?' to everyone. Everyone said a few lines about how god was the power and the giver the provider and stopped. When it was my turn to speak, I was a little nervous initially but then I said, 'I don't believe in god'. My teacher was horrified, the next half hour was spent trying to explain to me that I was an… Continue

Holy humor - is religion too serious?

In July 2008 I wrote some articles to make my column and blog readers think each being presented as a piece of humor and a different slant as seen through this poor old atheist eyes. I now wish to share these small humorous articles with my new friends and audience on gather.com



The first deals with the problem of a second coming of the Christian savior Jesus Christ of whom I think as one of the worlds greatest philosophers.





I am the son of… Continue

Oh, Isaiah lets down the profile of God?

It’s never ceases to amuse me that the following passage translated from the original old testaments the within the Jewish Bible, the torah has been adapted from its original meaning in most Christian publications of the Old Testaments



Isaiah Chapter 45.7 (Torah)



I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil; I am the LORD, that doeth all these things.



It of course highlights the fact that the Jewish author made a bold statement that God… Continue

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

"Somebody Up There Loves Me!"

At 2:30 AM on Friday, I sat watching the TV, unable to turn it off and go to bed. Embers had been blown from a rapidly moving brush fire into a mobile home community in Sylmar, Ca., and now I was watching horrified as random homes in the densely populated park began to go up. As I watched, scared and frantic residents scrambled to get what few belongings they could and got out. The police and fire department, trying to prevent destruction were then quite literally chased out of the park by the… Continue
