Hey Christians: It’s Not All About You

Image Credit: Me! 🙂

Christians are programmed to believe that not only is their religion the only “true” religion, but that everyone else is involved in a Satanic plot to destroy Christianity and take over the world (or something like that anyway). For those of us who are not buried in the sour mud of Christian ignorance, it’s often annoying to hear them blathering on and on about how they’re persecuted, abused, slighted and ridiculed.

Salvation For Sale?

A couple of months ago I grew frustrated with all the “sponsored posts” (ads) on Facebook. I understand they have to have revenue to operate. But it had reached a point where about every fourth post was an ad (this being with the app on my phone). And so I set out to see if there was anything I could do about it. Continue reading

Mind Your Own Business!

I’d like to to clarify something for those who have misunderstood me in the recent past (because I’ve been a little frustrated & rude lately). First, I absolutely respect your right to believe whatever you see fit to believe. It doesn’t matter what it is, it’s your business not mine. I hope you find comfort and peace within your beliefs. That said, I am not required to respect what you believe. Continue reading

The Death Of Haley Richardson

On August 20th, 2021 Haley Richardson, a wife, expectant mother and medical professional died from complications of Covid-19 – two days after the death of her unborn daughter. Her daughter was due in November. She had elected not to be vaccinated because she was uncertain as to what effects the shot might have on her baby. She leaves behind a husband and two year-old daughter. I didn’t know Haley. Never heard of her until her death was reported in the news. But the circumstances surrounding her passing struck a nerve with me. Haley and her daughter could be alive right now. Continue reading

Cocoons

A cocoon, either literal or metaphorical, is intended to protect its occupant during a time of change like caterpillars transforming into butterflies. But many people also cocoon themselves against knowledge, when it’s knowledge that is needed to bring about a beneficial metamorphosis. They shut themselves away and refuse to hear or see anything that contradicts the dogma that clouds their minds. This becomes frustratingly obvious when one tries to educate a person buried inside one of the Abrahamic religions. Continue reading

Sometimes, The Republicans Are The Jackasses

Well here we go again. Christians are once more seeking to worm their doctrine into our public schools. This time it’s in Arkansas. State Representatives Mary Bentley (R) and Gary Stubblefield (R) have sponsored a bill (HB 1701) to allow teachers the option of teaching Creationism to K-12 students as a theory. It’s passed in the State House on a strict party line vote and as of this writing is awaiting a vote in the State Senate. Continue reading

Can’t Get No Respect

A few days before Christmas, a far-right Christian group and a group of Native Americans ended up in a confrontation over the Christians’ desire to pray away the “dark energy” supposedly emanating from an ancient Native American burial mound in Adams County, Ohio. The cops ended up getting involved although no arrests were made. Dave Daubenmire (right) leads Pass the Salt Ministries out of Hebron, Ohio, about a two-hour drive from the snake-shaped mound which could have been built as long ago as 320 BC. The group planned to gather at the mound to “pray down” the dark energy they believe the site is releasing into the world (no clue why they believe such). Members of the American Indian Movement of Ohio, including the group’s executive director Philip Yenyo (left), heard about the plans for the event and met Daubenmire’s group in the parking lot. Like most Native American land, it was taken away years ago and is now considered public land although it’s still recognized as a Native American historic site. But since the American Indian Movement of Ohio does not own the land they had no real legal recourse to keep Daubenmire’s group away from the mound. Continue reading

Out Of Order

God_the_GeometerOne of the most obvious untruths in the Christian Bible can be found at the very beginning. If one compares the Genesis creation story to scientific fact, the whole thing just falls apart. What becomes obvious is that the Bible was not divinely inspired by a Creator. Why? Because the order of events is all wrong, and the laws of physics are laughably violated. There is an order to how things work in the cosmos. And like it or not, it’s how things have to work. If the Bible was divinely inspired by the god who created the universe, then it would have an accurate account of that creation. It does not, and therefore the Bible cannot be divinely inspired unless God is either incompetent or an outright liar. Let’s take a day-by-day look at what Genesis (KJV) has to say, compared to how we know “Creation” had to have occurred. Continue reading

How Will You Spend Eternity?

Have you ever thought about how you’ll spend eternity? I don’t mean Heaven or Hell, but rather how you’d spend your time in Heaven? Eternity is an awfully long time. I’ve been thinking back to some of the descriptions I was given of Heaven when I was a kid and also of what others have said about it as time has gone by. Continue reading
