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 ...

Riz Khan Discusses Darwin’s Legacy With D’Souza & Dawkins

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

In the first of the following videos, Riz Khan discusses Darwin's legacy with Dinesh D'Souza and Richard Dawkins. I'm not usually a fan of D'Souza, but I can at least appreciate his willingness to accept evolutionary theory...especially given his history as a religious apologist. Beyond that, D'Souza quickly moves into ...

Do It In The Name Of Heaven, We Can Justify It In The End?

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

When we hear the terms Fatwa or Jihad, we often think about radical Middle Eastern extremists whose intention is to impose their religious beliefs upon those they define as infidels. As Americans, we find the declarations of those leaders (Mullahs, Imams, etc.) who support such actions to be offensive and ...

Pastor Hagee Misrepresents “Thoroughly Modern Women”

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

If you listen to Pastor John Hagee, modern women are little more than sinful secular caricatures of all he would deem wrong with the fictional women portrayed on Sex & The City. In fact, he sets out to portray independent women (feminists) as little more than hedonistic sluts who engage ...

Is Your Child Really A Pagan? Take The Test Here

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 ...

Innocence Lost: The Path From Purity To Pragmatism

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

Many Americans like to look at Europe as an example of the moral decay we can expect if we continue to alter our values and ignore our long standing Christian principles. Implicit in this belief, amongst many on the religious right, is the presumption that one's morality is directly correlated ...

You Decide: Is The Bible Repulsive?

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

All too often the Bible is used to selectively support the preferred ideology of various religious groups. Unfortunately, this "pick and choose" approach undermines the validity of the religion it is used to bolster and it also helps to expose the numerous contradictions that exist in the application of the ...

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 ...
