family from Texas is racing to stop a woman from having her toes
amputated, because they want to let the prayer have more time to work.
started praying 5 heart attacks ago.
The lack of circulation has
left her toes black and doctors fear that if they don't act soon, her
condition may worsen.
Still after all the needless… Continue

up theists, mocking or criticizing your religion is not "intolerance."
You have never been shy about preaching to everyone how
wrong/immoral/destructive it is to not believe in your God and your
I defend your right to hold those opinions, but don't
cry intolerance and victimization when we voice ours too.

is the beginning of a new series called "Definitions". This series
will look at various words and concepts that are misused and
misrepresented in order to create dishonest discourse and garner support
for unsupported positions.
At first glance such a series might,
intuitively, seem unnecessary as most people do their research, right?… Continue

Would you hide yourself?

include terrible stories to be told in your name?
make creatures whose very existence is to make another being suffer?

If the universe is less than 10,000 years old, then;
all that we know about geology and biology is wrong;
the speed of light has been wrongly calculated which means;
Einsteinian physics is wrong and;
the distance and speed of other galaxies has been wrongly calculated,which
means that all we know about astronomy is wrong which means that;
Newtonian physics is also wrong.

This is a very sensitive topic, and I am not sure why. People argue that the burqa is merely clothing and that laws restricting what
clothing people can wear is against our very fundamental freedom of
expression, freedom of religion, not to mention our sexual autonomy.
Let me say only this;
The burqa is NOT merely clothing, it is not just a dress or a costume,
It is a MESSAGE.

Beliefs are not due any respect.
Would you respect my belief if I said that the moon was made of green cheese or
would you call it silly even though you respected me?
respect my belief if I said that I believed that goblins made my garden
grow or would you think me a bit off for putting out a bucket of cheese
for them every night?
Would you respect my belief if I thanked

Found in Mark 11:13-14
This is a hard lesson for some. When do we obey? When do we think for
ourselves? Well the bible lays this out very carefully in more than a
few places if we are careful enough to see it. One such place is in a
story from the pages of Mark, about Jesus and a walking trip to a far
away temple in the town of Bethany.
So in this recounting of a
clearly true event, we… Continue

Found in: Numbers 22:28-30
In a society filled with new age solutions to everything from depression to marital bliss, we find that the bible once again has the answers.
Turn to the old ways of mutual communication and respect. No more need
for birthing sessions, for psycho analysis, for therapy and no more
need for divorce. Just follow the…

A lesson in genetics
Found in: Genesis 30:37-39
As we all know, the bible is divinely inspired and, with this lesson so clearly
stated, I am not sure why we don't look to it more often for scientific
answers and advice in search for knowledge. Could there be any more
pure and precise source of knowledge than the magic man who started it
all? (For those of you waiting for an answer, the answer is… Continue

With all of the criticism Islam extremists are facing you might think that another diatribe about their evils isn't necessary. I contend that
they haven't faced enough and that there is nothing MORE necessary in
our political climate than one honest examination of Islam "extremism".

practically impossible to protect ourselves from extremists in… Continue

Most of us throughout the course of our lives have heard of AA and their 12 step
program. This is a highly respected organization whose mandate is to
help those who can't help themselves through a powerful support system.
People go there when they feel that their lives have spiraled out of
control with alcohol, the courts intervene to send people there when
they cross the… Continue
