Who Is The God That Stands Between The Theist & The Atheist?

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

I'm of the opinion that morality isn't the domain of any particular segment of society...whether that be religiously inclined groups or those who don't believe in God. Generally speaking, I suspect morality is an individual construct...albeit influenced by many factors including the individuals one chooses to associate with. Regardless, there ...

More On The Historical Inaccuracy Of The Bible

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

I find it fascinating how little most people actually know about the Bible and its historical validity. The adherence to the Bible as fact is even more astounding in the seeming absence of evidence to support such beliefs. As an adjunct to my prior posting on Hector Avalos...in which he ...

Hector Avalos: How Archaeology Killed Biblical History

Friday, July 25th, 2008

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

In the first of the following videos, Riz Khan discusses Darwin's legacy with Dinesh D'Souza and Richard Dawkins.

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

I just love Christian websites. They provide an abundance of inspiration...for tongue-in-cheek sarcasm. I think I hit the mother lode today. The following questionnaire is intended as a tool for parents to insure that their children haven't become pagans or begun to stray from true Christian doctrine. After all, Satan ...

You Decide: Is The Bible Repulsive?

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

CBS’s “Schwing-Town” Has AFA All Hot And Bothered

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

The religious loons never cease to amaze me. Following Froday's premiere of the new CBS show, Swingtown, the American Family Association is leading the charge to get the program banned from local CBS affiliates on the grounds that it violates their broadcast licensing because it doesn't "serve the public interest". ...

Faith Vs. Science: Is The Devil In The Details?

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Have you ever asked yourself what America and the world would look like if the abstinence-only advocating...intelligent design demanding...religious right had the power to enact the legislation they preferred? I don't know about you, but the thought of this group at the helm of humanity is not only frightening; it ...

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Good news on the gay marriage front from a newly released survey and from the California Supreme Court. A new USA Today Gallup Poll suggests that a large majority of Americans believe that the choice to marry someone of the same sex ought to be a private choice and that ...

Oy Vey: Donuts, Dogma, & A Damn Scarf

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

If you haven't figured out the topic of this posting from the above title, let me be the first to tell you that the right leaning blogosphere is in an uproar over a scarf worn by Rachael Ray in a Dunkin' Donuts advertisement. Here's the gist of the objection - ...
