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…

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…

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…

Atheism on the Radio

The Hoover Radio Show went fine but only as an icebreaker to more important issues.  It reminded me of early Christian bishops arguing over how many angels can reside on the head of a pin.  I felt like standing up and yelling out, “Look, as you sit here in this luxurious setting, people are getting their heads chopped off, wars are being fought, 15 million people (mostly children) are starving to death and billions have to live in fear of opening their mouth or saying the wrong thing.  Isn’t…

Craig's List Killer

Pennsylvania 'Craigslist killer' says she slayed dozens more across U.S. as part of satanic cult: report


My point is the failure of the educational system is leading to horror and chaos. Miranda Barbour was 19 years old when she and she husband committed this horrific “thrill murder.” At 19, she should have been studying science, history, comparative religion and literature. An educated mind would dismiss “Satanic cult”…

Fun With the Book of Revelation

< Writers of the new testament 4+1 gospels (includes Acts) cribbed liberally from the OT, especially Isaiah. >>>

And where does The Book of Revelation fit in?  After all, it’s St. John the Divine’s bad LSD trip.  There has to be something sacred about that.

Aside:  How the heck do you get a name like St. John the Divine?  Do you think he called himself John the Divine?  He was a prisoner/slave working in the quarries on a remote Roman possession…

A Refutation of Muslin Demographics

I took another look at the Muslim Demographics video and I’m quite dismayed. Unknowingly, I was recommending a Christian-based piece of propaganda.

I was so daunted by the Muslim growth statistics (> 8 per family) that I overlooked the purpose and intention of the video makers.

First of all, when a video or article starts off with, “According to research…” it should send up a red flag. What… Continue

Sex and Religion in Manila.

Jacqueline Sarah Homan sent me a very disturbing video about Sex and Religion in Manila. I haven’t been so pissed off at the Catholic Church since Brother George failed me in religion and spoiled my academic record. With 90s in the NYS Regents in science and math, I was turned down by two universities because of my apathy and animosity to Catholicism.

Years ago in Mirror Reversal I… Continue

This is the sequel to “Why I Became a Militant Non-Believer” on this blog.

Humanity is in a race with itself and we're running out of time. The planet is in dire straights. Nature has given mankind the power of reason, and in return, like Frankenstein’s monster, humans destroy her with the power of science. The waste of billions of years of evolution is unbearable to contemplate.

It’s the arrogance and stupidity that’s so hard to take. Instead of blessing nature with joy… Continue
