Jesus, Fruit of the Poisoness Tree

In order for Jesus to be the Messiah, he must be a direct descendant of Adam, Abraham, and David. Paul refers to him as the Last Adam, 1 Corinthians 15:45. He's referred to a Davic King or the King of Kings for a reason. Clearly we have to establish Jesus as a descendant of Adam, but the story is convoluted and I reject the reasoning based on tradition.



The Messianic Prophesy is laid out in both the Old Testament… Continue

Courage Campaign working to televise Prop 8. Xtian groups moving to ban cameras...

I just thought I'd pass this along.









Courage Campaign



Yesterday, we asked you to respond to Judge Vaughn Walker's request for public comment on potentially televising the Prop 8 federal trial that starts Monday. In less than 24 hours, an amazing 82,103 people have signed the letter from the Courage Campaign Institute and CREDO Action.



Despite Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling below (please read on), we still need you to sign the letter. With… Continue

Christians not all crazy? Gasp!

I'm a Christian. Ya'll hate me. I get it. But, while I'm here, I hope to bridge the gap a little between us. I don't plan on converting you or anything ridiculous like that. I don't have the time and let's face it, you don't want to listen anyways. Rather, I prefer to show you that not all of us are lunatics.



So, for starters, here's an example of something "logical" that we can relate on. Not ALL Christians believe in a young earth. In fact, the idea to me is rather silly. I like to… Continue

Americans’ Role Seen in Uganda Anti-Gay Push

By JEFFREY GETTLEMAN



KAMPALA, Uganda — Last March, three American evangelical Christians, whose teachings about “curing” homosexuals have been widely discredited in the United States, arrived here in Uganda’s capital to give a series of talks.



The theme of the event, according to Stephen Langa, its Ugandan organizer, was “the gay agenda — that whole hidden and dark agenda” — and the threat homosexuals posed to Bible-based… Continue

Evolution

What does one reply to these statements about evolution:



1. Although there have been demonstrable changes within a species, there has never been any evidence to suggest that a species can change into a different species.



2. Most mutations are negative to the species and thus aren't advantageous to the theory of evolution.



These two questions seem to me to be the best arguments creationism (pseudo-science though it is) has to offer (I know they are arguments… Continue

Letter to Atheist's

Dear Atheist,



Yes dear christian?

Do you think its a coincidence that...

of billions of stars and planets in the many galaxies, only earth has life, and abundance of it?



the sun is 400 times the size of the earth's moon, 400 times further away from earth than the moon, yet they look both proportionally the same size in our sky?



the sun lights the days nicely, while the moon glimmers in the night sweetly and the clouds bring forth rain to…

My (brief) De-conversion Story.

My entire life I belonged to a church; even as an infant the indoctrination had begun. For the first 22 years of my life, I missed scarcely over 2 dozen church services. I attended youth functions, summer camps, and other various church activities. I grew up in a small town surrounded by family and friends who were all believers to varying degree's. In school I had heard evolution mentioned once, maybe twice and even then it was only a mention without explanation. Through the years I had a few… Continue

My reason for being anti-faith. I feel sorry for this womans kids.

So I was watching this ridiculous show called "Trading Spouses" today. The premise of the show is that two families from different parts of the country with different ways of life trade a spouse for a few weeks. In this particular episode one family is a new age, somewhat free thinking family while the other is a typical christian family from the south(except for the mother). I can almost guarantee that this woman has very little knowledge of the bible and clearly has no knowledge of any other… Continue

Protecting Me from WHAT EXACTLY?

Sometimes my Theist family makes me want to SCREAM!

I can feel that there is a divide forming in my relationships with them... but especially with my mother and brother. I guess my mother's "zealot" habits aren't REALLY her fault... she's an impressionable and passive woman who was brought up in the "Deep South Bible Belt." Still... an excuse for irrationality and harrassment of "Heretics" doesn't make the pain any less for me.



Recently, I was extremely shocked! I couldn't sleep… Continue

Even in Prison you can't get away from them....

I’ve had a couple of friend who worked as prison guards.



Mostly they work at the “State” level but also one who works on the Federal level. Reading this news article just made me laugh.



A convicted rapist is an atheist. He's also open about it. At least the guy is straight forward about being an atheist.



You get a lot of prisoners who “find God” as a way to buy favor and make themselves look good to various groups and the parole boards.



If only my… Continue

10 MYTHS — AND 10 TRUTHS — ABOUT ATHEISM

When scientists don't know something — like why the universe came into being or how the first self-replicating molecules formed — they admit it. Pretending to know things one doesn't know is a profound liability in science. And yet it is the life-blood of faith-based religion. One of the monumental ironies of religious discourse can be found in the frequency with which people of faith praise themselves for their humility, while claiming to know facts about cosmology, chemistry and biology that… Continue

DECLINE AND FALL OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE



"The decline of Rome was the natural and inevitable effect of immoderate greatness.

Prosperity ripened the principle of decay; the causes of destruction multiplied

with the extent of conquest; and as soon as time or accident had removed

the artificial supports, the stupendous fabric yielded to

the pressure of its own weight."

Lesbian couple custody battle (one of which turned evangelical christian)

I'm not sure if anyone else has seen this on the news but i decided to put up an article about the custody battle between a lesbian couple.



By Amir Efrati



There is an interesting custody battle underway in Vermont and Virginia that involves religion, same-sex unions, and artificial insemination.



Janet Jenkins and Lisa Miller were joined in a civil union in Vermont in 2001. Miller later moved to Virginia in 2003, renounced homosexuality and became an evangelical… Continue

I'm Out!

New Year's Eve, I was at home getting ready to go out and my mom was watching a Lifetime movie on TV. The movie was about a Christian mother and her homosexual son and the mother's struggles to try to "cure" her son against his wishes. During the movie, I told my mom, "Movies like this make me wonder how you and Dad would react if [my sister] Kim or I were to come out as homosexual, or if we changed our religion or something." She responded, "Well, you basically did. You never go to church… Continue

But religion gives people hope and comfort...

I have noticed that many TV shows have blatant religious undertones to them. I was watching a show called "Criminal Minds" about the FBI's Quantico unit to catch psycho killers, and one episode had a father who performs exorcism and ultimately leads to killing people, who actually are not possessed by demons. So cut to the final scene, an FBI agent, who is also a former catholic, who happens to walk up to a church, queue slow music and the camera angle to give it's presents a sort of awe-struck… Continue
