I am usually the Grinch of the Christmas season at least in my mind. I intentionally hold my tongue and let others enjoy one on the most…Continue
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…Continue

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…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.
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.…Continue
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…Continue
“I don’t believe in atheists.” That’s a phrase I’ve been seeing a lot lately. It passes for clever in apologetics blogs and it helps many a drive-by tweeter to troll the atheist hashtags. I somehow doubt the majority of these people are making references to the Chris Hedges book from 2008, but who knows how the meme rolls. 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
With the recent controversy over laws in Indiana and Arkansas that allow Christian discrimination against homosexuals, I am compelled to point out the hypocrisy of those implementing such laws, as being incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial.
Constant debate regarding homosexuality is tiring,…
"I miss the good old days. You know, when things were simpler and more pure. Like Mayberry."
This is probably one of the most absolutely ridiculous notions in America…
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
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…Continue
Okay. I tried to sucker you thinking this was going to be about prostitutes or at least the ones familiar to all of us. However, this about the so-called red-light traffic management systems used around the country and how they are full of whole for legal challenges, but to challenge the accuracy and effectiveness of…Continue
I just finished watching promos and the short version of the movie and realized it contains all the most common fallacies of reason.
Everythting from Strawman, False Analogy, False Dichotomy and even the Slippery Slope fallacy are so obvious in this movie.
Even the Title is a Fallacious.
The only Indoctrination about the Movie is the movie is an attempt to Indoctrinate viewers into believing that public schools are dangerous, which is indeed false.
The only thing…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

This weekend was a personal test for my parenting. As an atheist parent, I am pretty adamant in presenting both sides of an argument and using context when discussing religious belief with my kids. The only confirmation of how fair of a job I am doing is when the kids end up in awkward…Continue
