Spiritualist and Gullible

Started Feb 26, 2011 0 Replies

"Love your post Heather about our tiny roles, this too plays an important role in just living life without all the fantasy and delusion people add to feel special.   Love the Socrates quote Arcus, will post that on my blog :0)"

We’d be total shits if it wasn’t for Jesus, admit Christians

  Christian organisations have called AC Grayling’s ‘Atheist Bible’ complete nonsense by insisting that if it wasn’t for Jesus they would all be complete and utter shitbags. The Good Book is Grayling’s attempt to show that inherent kindness is a feature of evolution and bound tightly into our genetic make-up, not the result of an invisible deity threatening people with an eternity in a fiery Hell – a claim refuted by Christians everywhere. Regular church attendee Troy Williams told us, “I…See More

Arcus commented on Paul Sheppard's blog post 'Enlightened Folk'
"It appears to me that many of those who claim to be 'enlightened' have merely come to the conclusion that they have nothing more to learn, and believe their level of knowledge is sufficient to draw ultimate conclusions. It is the…"

"Yes, there's definitely more opportunity to do something productive when you're not spending that time on your knees praying a prayer that god's not going to answer anyway."

The Problems With Prayer

I was quite surprised at the level of response to the Hopi Indian response video which included messages from the family of the elder who created the statement.  What I find amazing is the level of anger towards me questioning the validity of prayer and asking people to donate instead.  Besides being called evil, narrow minded, one dimensional and a douche bag, this to me shows the level people are at when it comes to their so called…See More

Spiritual Super Powers

 Spiritual Super PowersHave you ever wished you could fly? Move at super speed? Save people with super strength?        I must admit to not knowing anyone who at one point in their life hasn’t fantasized about having some sort of super power.  The fantasy I had and sometimes still have to to be able to fly especially living with the sea as my daily view, it would be heaven…See More

An Interesting Call about Doreen Virtue Cards

Posted on April 1, 2011 at 11:34am 2 Comments

If I were that way minded I could say that I just had a very spooky call which seemed like a message for me that I am doing the right thing by questioning spirituality.  I have changed some of the details for ethical reasons.

Enlightened Folk

Posted on April 1, 2011 at 11:33am 3 Comments

Lately I have been conversing with people who claim to be at the top of spiritual development, they are apparently enlightened, free of pain, ego, suffering and completely at peace.  One in particular has resources over the net which will help you achieve the same and has some popular podcasts casts which will help get you there.



All sounds good doesn't it?  That is until you speak to these self proclaimed gurus and ask a few questions.  It soon becomes apparent that they are no more… Continue
