Revelations is easily one of the most controversial books in the Bible because of it's phantasmagoric and hallucinatory imagery as well as its catastrophic end of the world scenarios. Elaine Pagels brings together a book that is a literary mess as well as Halloween childishness. Nevertheless, her research into its history is impeccable.
It is difficult to bring together a book, such as Revelations, that is at…Continue
For all their sanctimonious talk of pro-life, the Evangelical Right likes nothing better than a good war. When the bombs start falling and the bullets flying, the Christian Right becomes orgasmic at the prospect of death and destruction as many believe that war with North Korea will lead to Armageddon predicted the…Continue
Asides from the promotion of ignorance, the embrace of intolerance, the perpetuation of fantasy, the encouragement of external reliance, the insistence of basing thought on dogma rather than fact, abetting belief in ghosts, gremlins and ghouls, the blatant demotion of women and its continued history of…Continue
Winter Solstice offers a time to look back on the past year to acknowledge my challenges and the things I chose to do to solve those problems. This recent past year was a very hard one for me with the death of my oldest son, Cary, a victim of cancer at the young age of 53 years and one month. This loss turned out to be harder on me than I imagined. Thankfully, Craig and Laura and their families walked these dark days with me.
After wallowing in that pain I turn my attention to the…Continue
So far, everybody I know is human.
Which for me begs the question: What is it to be human, or what is it to live a human life?
How does our experience, due to our genes, differ from other life forms?
Do you remember the charts from 50 years ago that often put humans at the top of all life forms?
Do you like many others now find such ideas ironic, tragic, and deadly?
So other than destroying this planet, we so often say we love, what is our best potential…Continue

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…Continue
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.
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…Continue
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…
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…Continue
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…Continue
"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…Continue
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…Continue
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 xxxchurch.com, which helps fight porn addiction. The article he wrote was entitled "Is Judas In Hell?" , and you can read it here:…Continue
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.
