Captain Spaulding, Chakras, and Ghost Hunts: A Skeptic's Weekend At A Horror Convention

If you can’t tell by my attached photo gallery, I absolutely love the horror and supernatural genres of entertainment. Alfred Hitchcock, Vincent Price, George Romero, Quentin Tarantino, Boris Karloff, and Peter Cushing? Cannot get enough. I love the macabre art inspired by all things dark and taboo. Little coffins decorated with favorite…

The Bible Is Always Right, Even When It's Wrong 

 Over the years I've had many disagreements with non-believers over the credibility of the bible in regards to everything from the reality of Genesis, to weather or not Jesus wore closed or open toed sandals. I am proud to say I have never been wrong in this area, except the one time I thought Jesus mentioned something about not toilet papering your neighbours house, during the sermon…

Jehova Told Me To Act -- When Religious Shepherds Fail Their Flocks

Jehovah spoke to me, told me to act. Vester Flanagan.

America, we have to stop the double standard being applied to Christianity. Just like in Islam, and even within Hinduism, you have your extremists. Still many Christians beg me not to judge the entirety of their religion, yet turn right around and…

Pastor Jeffress: Jesus Wasn't a Law-Breaking Hippie, Condemns Fellow Churches

I normally make an effort to go out of my way to avoid any news stories coming out of FOX news. I also do what I can to not bother responding to any discussion panels either. There is one draw that will get my attention, and keep it, in a FOX news article. Pastors, politics, and biblical scripture.…

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…

The Wizard of Oz, an Atheist Allegory. OR The Show Me Skeptic's Introduction to the Atheist Nexus.

The movie The Wizard of Oz, based off of L Frank Baum's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is an American classic.  The story is also often used in social studies classes as an allegory to the Populist era of the late 1800s.  Baum did not write Oz as an allegorical tale, but it fits quite well.  The Wizard of Oz can also be used as an allegory to an Atheists shedding of religion and superstition, on the Atheist's road to self-discovery.  I will use the…

It's Either "One Nation Under God" Or Bite My Ass And Leave

Humanity can be so obstinate when it finds a cause to support. I deal with this stubborn natured characteristic all the time whenever I discuss politics, religion, or economics with the locals in my current home town. In particular, my next door neighbor Chuck epitomizes the title of this article in the very literal sense. Yes, this man has said to me…

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…

God is irrelevant

It is not essential to believe in God or in the historical Jesus or in Christianity. What resonates for me is a deeper meaning than prayers or ritual or litanies can provide. It is an awareness and understanding of who I am, personally, and professionally. It is in being able to think and reason and pay attention to what is real and distinguish that which is superstition or tradition. It is being willing and able to think of others, including other…

Why I want Rainbow Connection as my funeral song.

My husband and I were joking about what we want our funerals to be like when we die, however I got to thinking about one thing. The music. After all, music has been played at every funeral I've been to, and I want a song that isn't religious but something that is personal to me, which I realized is Rainbow Connection, the song I loved for years and always have burned onto a cd along with being on my Itunes. 

Why I want the rainbow connection played at my funeral (Lyrics first, then my…
