How Jesus' Views on Marriage Proves Yahweh's Laws are NOT Absolute OR Jesus is Mistaken

  Marriage is still viewed as a sacred institution in our society, although it has different meanings for many people.  Christians view it as a "gift from god," or a"spiritual representation" of their relationship with God.   Truth be told however, the institution of marriage came about for economic reasons, and not out of love for a god, or the love for a potential mate.Marriage has been defined differently by different cultures four thousands of years, and not solely in the realm of Christian…See More

Why Jesus (if he existed) Ain't Coming Back -The Bible Version.

Posted on January 13, 2013 at 12:28pm 0 Comments

"Although Christianity was practiced shortly after the supposed “death” of Jesus Christ, in the Roman Empire it only…

Why I Hate Thanksgiving

Posted on November 24, 2011 at 5:50pm 12 Comments

For most Americans, Thanksgiving is a time where family and friends gather together to "Thank God" for their "blessings" --which I find bizarre.  Traditionally, Thanksgiving is said to have originated with the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians who are said to have shared an autumn harvest feast in the year 1621, but the roots of Thanksgiving are deeper than that.  Harvest celebrations were common amongst many groups--from the the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans who feasted and paid…

Hello, hope I can read your books one day, there should be more books on that subject. Religion still has somewhat untouchable status in the world and that should change.
