Before tripping lightly over the wagging tongues of Christian apologists and their fathomless chasms of excuses, defenses and, well, apologies, I wanted to define a few terms to set the scale.
First, the word equivocate. To… Continue

We have all had that conversation with friends, family, and even in our own minds have pondered the validity of the "What if you go to Hell?" scenario. Continue
Images of devils, demons, exposed human flesh to flame, faces twisted in torturous poses, evil looking imps in observant reveries of delight. The overall themes being rejection, exile, physically unbearable pain, retribution, and guilt. Through many belief systems, Hell is a common thread that most agree upon.…

It seems over the last decade we have more things to be afraid of.
Between the advent of engineered disease, and surreptitious attacks of mind boggling computer viruses that could potentially bring down banking systems globally, it would seem we need to look at everything we… Continue

Florrie Fisher shared her life as a "boozer, user, and a loser," with rather sophisticated New York high school students, about 30 years before Amy Sedaris (sort of) portrayed her on the Comedy Central show, Strangers with Candy.

Christianity has an awesome propaganda machine that regularly pumps out information, misinformation and down right lies, which the media regularly promotes as gospel rather than investing a little critical thought and just a smidgeon of skepticism (default mode for real journalists).
A good example of poor journalism, sloppy work and plain laziness comes in a story picked up by the national media from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. As a research organization, Pew's… Continue

Despite being 11 years into the 21st century, in the United States the train of ignorance rolls on and shows no signs of slowing down. Before, I start in on this rant (yes, it is a rant) I must admit that I am highly disgusted by the colossal amount of misinformation the black church passes along. I am incensed by the ignorance it encourages and more importantly, I am frightened by the amount of, what else can I call it, bullshit the community actually… Continue

Does hypocrisy know no bounds? The English branch is now saying that society is selfish, irresponsible and is suffering form 'a lack of trust'.

The clips this week comes from an old propaganda/brainwashing American men film, "Your job in Germany." Isn't it horrible how a country believes its so superior that it has the right to invade other countries so it can be the world's superpower? And the use of propaganda! Tsk! I guess the picture is right. They are born and bred with this belief of superiority. (snark)

In the recent edition of the Osservatore Romano (16-17 Feb 2009) there is a very short piece entitled "In the footsteps of Galileo science must value faith and reason." The message is spelled out in the first sentence, stating that scientists are called upon by the Vatican to not renounce "neither reason nor faith". To suggest that scientists do not value reason is an insult of the highest order. But the abuse of language which is one of the hallmarks of Vatican propaganda needs not only to be… Continue

Happy New Year! As you may know, the Sc-Fi channel runs a Twilight Zone marathon on New Years's Eve and New Year's Day. It's fun to see all the old filmmaking techniques, the occasional bad acting, the weirdness of the stories and how freaky that narrator is (Futurama does a perfect parody called "The Scary Door".) But it's also fun to see American culture and weird beliefs in this era.
One episode called "The Obsolete Man" had this weird "git them godliss commies!" feel to it. A… Continue
