the water in the teapot is boiling &
the top is rattling---
as the hot steam begins to bubble out
the piercing scream is coming---
14+ million out of work
no universal health insurance
foreclosures upon foreclosures
(just in time for the “holiday season”) &
while the mainstream media does its best
to avoid the happenings within the belly of this empire,

I had to share this with y'all...I found it to be hilarious and to be another ridicule against the 9/11 conspiracy theorists

I've had a relatively good life. I was never abused, impoverished or homeless. I was born with loving parents, who raised me in a Baptist household. They were missionaries for years and I was a child, impressionable and naive. I was raised on a diet of the usual well-minded christian brainwashing. But my story only becomes applicable 2009.
Till I was 15, I coasted. Sure I prayed occasionally, went to church with my parents, believed in Jesus as the lord and all that, but I…Continue
.....but I see the bucolic East Coast is not immune.
A local evangelical church is featured in "Halifax Magazine", a free add-in to the local Sunday paper.
From the article-
"He (Russ Conway, the pastor) initially says a gay person would be welcome within the church, but when pressed acknowledges that unless they wanted to become straight they would not be welcome."
And I'll give you the last three paragraphs (or what I feel is…Continue

Growing up the phrase preached regardless of religion is, "Listen to your elders." While it make sense in a control of the masses perspective while kids are going to school, I don't find in retrospect that it was the best advice. Currently, it's severely inadequate as a method of seeking truth or as a method of learning. When I think back to my Grandmother telling me to put on a hat because I'll catch a cold, I can't help by think, "Derp!" My mother told me to buy a house, you'll never lose…Continue
mr. mccain (remember him? yes, he’s still alive & still a sold-out withering shell of a man)
steps up to the pulpit &
belts out into the mic that will be broadcasted round the world,
saying that libya is an inspiration for those in
and even those in beijing & russia?
(go to youtube and watch this withering maggot speak, do it for yourself because nobody
can really depict what a puppet…Continue

Prayer doesn't make sense. We Atheists know it doesn't work. But The thing is, it couldn't possibly work.
I'm going to be arguing as if the Christian god actually exists here. It's purely hypothetical, I'm not arguing for his existence, merely trying to refine how he could possibly exist. Before I begin, let me lay out a bit of the view of the traditional Christian god so you can see what exactly what I'm talking about. First, god is all knowing. Second, god has a plan. The second…Continue
I doubt many of you noticed (or maybe you did) but I've been inactive since August 17th. Usually most people wouldn't blurb too much on why, but as it is, I have things to talk about. :D So here goes.
1. I started school in September. I was taking Criminal Justice and focusing on my growing homework load. I was enjoying it, until...
2. I landed my dream job. I've been actively applying for jobs for months now, trying to get myself employed before my…Continue
Three of the major religions formed out of the early Israelite religion, this religion was essentially a precursor for Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
The original scriptures of the Israelite religion were written between 900 – 100 BC. Not all of these had a directly religious origin, but were given religious significance by being collected together into a single compilation.
It was around 1200 BC that a number of tribes of diverse origin inhabited the hills…Continue
