Blood Moon Stupidity: It only proves Earth has a shadow!

Keep getting Christian NONGS, highlighting a 'Blood Moon' as having End Of Times significance.

When all a 'Blood Moon' means that light is refracted through the Earth's atmosphere producing reds and purples on the surface of the moon as the moon sits in the middle of the Earth's shadow, and as it moves out of the middle, it varies to more purplish and finally as it exits the shadow, it returns to it's silvery former glow.

When are such idiotic End Of Times fundamentalists going…

J is for Jesus Fucking Christ

Jesus didn’t approve homosexuality.

Jesus Saves!


Jesus take the wheel.

Jesus is Lord!

Y’all need Jesus!


Jesus on stationery.

Jesus on itty bitty gold crosses dangling from your mom’s neck.

Jesus on billboards.

It's Not The Hatfield and The McCoys...But It's Pretty Close

You know, I love mug shots where the perps have big grins on their faces. Specifically, the cat ate the canary kind of look. This week’s headlines managed to present one that couldn’t be missed, and dare I say, I think there are even twinkles in the eyes of these men. In the…

Godwinks or Hoodwinked?

Have you heard about Godwinks yet?

They are new in the “feel good” style media line up lately. I was introduced to these once a month motivational segments while at work the other morning when one of our clerks went on her break, tuning in to the ever popular wine drinking duo of Kathy Lee and Hoda on the Today show. This…

Spiritual Eugenics Really Are A Thing

My eldest son and I were making the daily commute to school this past week, and we ended up on the discussion of extending human life to hundreds of years. He’d overheard a news article about slowing down the aging process, which got him thinking. Naturally, I’m somewhat against extending human…

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…

Governor Pence and the Grim Silence of the Evangelical Right

"The tradition of all dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living... as they seem to be occupied with revolutionizing themselves and things, creating something that did not exist before, precisely in such epochs of revolutionary crisis they anxiously conjure up the spirits of…

The “A” Word

I have long ago grown weary of euphemisms used to blur, mislead or hide actuality. For instance, once I am dead, I died. I did not “pass on;” “go to a better place” or “transition.” I died. Although, I have a personal euphemism that I like, some people would not like hearing that I “croaked.” My thoughts about using…

Judas: Sinner, Saint, Or Catalyst?

I read an interesting article on CNN the other day by Craig Gross. For those who aren't familiar with Craig, he's a pastor and founder of, which helps fight porn addiction. The article he wrote was entitled "Is Judas In Hell?" , and you can read it here:…

Red Pill, Blue Pill, Green Pill, Fix You Up Cocktail

It was one of those little paper cups that one can put ketchup or tartar sauce in. A white little bowl of pressed edges and a crimped rim. Almost origami like. Just a shallow condiment cup that, at its bottom, held two impossibly small pills that held too many promises to believe.

Help me…

Radio Show

The Garin Hoover Radio Show is on line.  It was recorded March 12 and featured a Jew (Manny), a Christian (Rev Terry Jones), an imam and an atheist (moi).  The discussion was centered around the question, "Is Islam a Religion of Peace?"

The debate was often heated and vituperative. Rev Jones, I thought, was very good with an all-American cowboy mentality. He told the imam, "we don't want your Sharia Law, so don't even try to bring it here."  He made national news last year by trying…

Where Am I Again?

A lot of politicians and congressional members have been making the headlines in some of the worst ways lately. Headline making behavior like writing treasonous sounding letters of hate and rebellion against diplomatic talks directly to Iranian leadership. Making the phrase "climate change" an…

The result of Home Schooling and Religious Education!

Here is a video showing what religious education and home schooling creates.

Some of you may find this very scary.

Education that emphasises Rational Critical Thinking, should be mandatory for all children.

Regardless of their parent's religion.

Don't you agree?

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…

So, what's next?

I finally completed my name change yesterday and began notifying various organizations. I sent out letters and visited the credit union. It was fairly impressive that the credit union woman with the short-sleeved shirt  had a scanner at her desk so she could scan my court document.

The actual legal proceeding took about ten minutes. The judge asked me a few questions. I have a state certificate that includes an initial for my…

Scouring the Shire

One of my favorite pieces of literature is the last chapter of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Despite Tolkien's famous dislike of allegory the fact is that his stories resonate so strongly in us because of their multifaceted ie. allegorical nature. In the story, the heroes return victorious only to discover their homeland overtaken by the very philosophy against which they were fighting. What sets the heroes apart from their native cohabitants is two fold: perspective and…

The Wrong Meaning of Life

Many church or mosque goers believe religion gives their lives “meaning.”  It’s a delusion, an appealing but false concept.  What meaning could being credulous enough to believe the preposterous give one’s life?  If anything, I think a good and magnanimous god would disdain such behavior.  They’re abandoning reason for self-interest and wishful thinking. 

In biology, the Prime Directive (PD) governs all life down to insects, worms and beyond.  The force that governs all life is…

The Best Larping Around: Religious Services

Let's talk about a past time I thoroughly enjoy now and then.


For those unfamiliar, LARP is an acronym for Live Action Role Play. Essentially, a bunch of similarly minded folks get together and collaborate to have fun pretending scenes out of their favorite movies, books, comics, etc. This is strictly pretending, of course, but with rules involved. The basic goal of LARPing (yes, you can make the acronym a verb, how cool!) is to create a desired fantasy environment… Continue
