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

I have a suspicion that the culture wars are merely the means religious leaders use to distract the faithful from the slow but steady onslaught of science in undermining the historical basis of the Bible. You see, if science continues to progress, the practice of taking scripture literally will no ...

PBS, Politics, Patriotism, & The Primordial Patriarch

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

Heaven help us! PBS is going to air a documentary, The Bible's Buried Secrets, which explores the factuality of the Bible...and Donald "Wingnut" Wildmon's American Family Association has already launched an action alert. The AFA is asking its supporters to sign a petition urging congress to halt all government funding ...

More On That Plan For A Theocracy…How About Anarchy?

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Take a look at the following video and tell me you can't imagine that extreme religious groups in America could ever trigger the same sectarian strife that currently plagues the Middle East. I don't think the thought is that far fetched...and I'm convinced that the evidence supports the contention that ...

Creationism & Cross Burning: The Painful Path To Theocracy?

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

An Ohio science teacher seems to think that his Christian beliefs grant him the authority to support creationism while undermining the theory of evolution, to disregard the scientific evidence of the age of the earth and the universe, and to brand his students with the image of a cross (see ...

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". ...
