So much for the “inerrant” word of god.

And here you have it, yet another version of the inerrant word of god is on the works, because we (well, not we, they - but you know what I mean) need to make the bible make sense. Yes, that's exactly what I meant to say.



So, we are in for a new set of semantics and mythological animals brought to life by the editors that will probably change "unicorns" for "rhinos" - who knows! Maybe even Noah's Ark story will make sense this time, no?  Okay, sarcasm is not very easy to… Continue

Broaden our Horizons

Just as I started this post I found a video of it. It is worth watching all 4 parts on utube. URL at end.



A BBC Horizon programme on the subject of Evolution called “Are we still Evolving?” It was presented by Dr. Alice Roberts who also produced “The incredible Human Journey” a five part series which is excellent. It investigated derelict copper and arsenic mine in Devon, England. It produced so much arsenic at one point that it was the largest producer of it in the world for a…

Gasp! Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame, is an Atheist



EVANGELICAL Christians – particularly those in the US – have never gone a bundle on Harry Potter books and movies, denouncing them as “unchristian”,“demonic” … blah, blah …



Now these joyless twats have one more reason to detest HP: the revelation in Esquire today that Daniel Radcliffe, star of… Continue

My Journey up to now (02/03/2011)

First a bit of family history.

 

My paternal grandfather came to South Africa from India in the 1940s. He joined his two older brothers who were running a convenience store in a small town. Grandfather got married and had two sons and a daughter. All three were brought up together with their cousins in this small town. They were all kept very religious by their elders.

 

My grandfather, being the youngest, wasn't treated very well by his brothers and decided to…

These folks take a clawfoot bathtub and make a shrine to beat all shrines. There is a statue of, i guess, the virgin mary or something in this little cubby provided by the upsidedown bathtub. There are bricks… Continue

Top Ten Harmful Spiritual Beliefs Part One

In no particular order of preference, here is part one of the most harmful spiritual beliefs and why.



1. Karma, hell and punishment systems.

These are designed to create fear and control people through the belief that they will pay in some way for their thoughts, feelings and behaviours here on earth. As no-one is a master of their own minds then why would they be punished for not being in full control.  This expectation just creates guilt and stress as people try to… Continue
