Meet the Baptists Part 2: 3 Things God Cannot Do

I've renounced my atheism. I know many atheists find it perplexing when a fellow atheist abandons his or her lack of faith, but it was quite simple for me. As I studied the Baptist religion during this series, I discovered that Jesus can wipe away all my sins. Furthermore, the Baptists say that only God is without sin. I asked Jesus to wipe away my sins making me without sin which propelled me into Godhood. Since I believe in me, I can no longer call myself an atheist and I thought you all… Continue

THEY DON'T HOLD THEM UNDER WATER LONG ENOUGH.....

Well, here in Texas we have a “plague” called “Southern Baptists. As one sage said about a hundred years ago (aptly describing Southern Baptists), “The problem with Baptists [Southern] is that when they baptize them, they don’t hold them under the water long enough…..” Sadly, the man who said that was shot in the back where the suspenders crossed by a Southern Baptist.



Well, their influence can be seen everywhere. From gambling to alcohol. You can’t serve alcohol after 2 in the… Continue

The catholic church is pathetic

My mom has always been a catholic. My dad was an atheist and he passed away December 2003.....My mom was in such grief and the church offered her grief counceling. When she received my dads life insurance money, for some reason she felt she needed to thank the church for their "kindness". She gave them a $10,000 donation. In the process of her grief counceling she revealed that she had not let go of my dads ashes. (It had always been my idea to keep the ashes until my mom passed and let them go… Continue

The Moral Pilot

Morality has been argued as an absolute or a relative endeavor. The religious would have you believe in morals that require blind obedience and others, such as myself, would argue that the moral action is dependent on circumstances. I dare to generalize this deep field of philosophy down to a blind following of rules that equate to morals versus a thinking man's gambit.



The common question from a theist to the atheist is "where do you get your morals?" Of course, the theist is handed… Continue

New here

I poked around a bit. This site looks interesting. Nesting a bit, adding my lil' purple background, saying hi in the chatroom, getting ready to tune into the radio show. Perhaps some of you nice people will notice I used the same personal message when trying to add you. No offense, I just couldn't think of 11 different ways to say "hi, can I crash your commune?"

Hope all is well. Hope you tune in to me too. =)

A Word on Comfort

We all like to be comfortable, don't we? We enjoy the luxuries of everyday life, whether it's the expensive company car or the gourmet food in your pantry. Everyone likes to be comfortable.

Yet, as it is, you can't always have the best of everything, and that stands true for most aspects of life. Sometimes, you have to ride the bus because that company car broke down, and sometimes, you have to buy generic. That's just the way it is.

Now, what do most people do when things aren't… Continue
