Government praises “spiritual insight” of bishops in response to petition calling for their removal from the Lords
The Government has said that changes to the Lords are "important" but that the position of the bishops in the Upper House is not a "priority", in response to a petition calling for the removal of 26 bishops from the House of Lords.

Not too long ago I was lucky enough to bump into part time actor and full time Jesus freak, Kirk Cameron, at the Denver International Airport. Mr. Cameron was on his way home to southern California after a brief speaking engagement at a local 7-11. Knowing I would probably never meet Mr. Cameron again I asked if he would grant me a short interview as he waited to board his…Continue
I am the only atheist in my family....and considered to have mental issues because of it. I may possibly burn in hell. I am okay while writing this,but it is a very hard and very tough spot to be in. Having friends and family members to fear you, because of different beliefs. I have tried to commit suicide over it. I said that to say this .....IF
Been awhile since I have had time to spend on this site. I have missed it. Just finished writing my second book, entitled : " Stop the Hate, Start the Healing" ( My Journey from Religion) . Yes, it is a biography and hope to find a publisher soon, which is not an easy task, as it seems you have to be famous or…Continue

Whistle Blower in dire straits.
Dan Abshear was building a new life Dan in Milwaukee
but recently it all fell apart when his girl friend of nearly three years left him.
He turned himself in for an old probation violation in St. Louis just to get out of the cold.
Is there anyone who can offer him work when he gets out of jail in three month?
Presently, I'm back in jail again in St.…Continue

Write--- (from Dan Abshear) www.henrymakow.com ;
A few men here in jail with me look much older than what their actual age. And this is fascinating to me.
This possibly may be due to their in home doses of severe drugs. Their accelerated age may also be due to various life tragedies they have experienced. These prematurely aged men are very pleasant people to speak…

When the author looks in the mirror he is almost Unseen.
So it turns out humans are not the most advanced life forms in the cosmos. Neither are the Glimps. Glimps, however, have as large a gulf between themselves and ourselves as we do between ourselves and cats.
Similar to a bad sci-fi the Glimps have conquered us and made us their playthings. Pets. So Glimper is on vacay and Glimpo is left in charge. Kim Kardashian is the pet. A priceless bauble is the prized…Continue
I kinda doubt the UK would risk doing this to a potential US president, but just putting this message on record could still be a hoot! (Too bad only UK citizens can sign.)
What happens when you put mirrors on a house in the dessert. As we understand more and more the human mind we have been able to both experience illusions but also understand them and enjoy them. In this way...we can manipulate illusions so that we participate in meta-illusion…Continue
First blog post, testing.
People are incredibly receptive to meaningless buzzwords, according to a new study in the journalJudgment and Decision Making. Yes, the vast majority of people are willing to believe complete bullshit, to use the scholarly term. (Title of the study: "On the reception and detection of pseudo-profound bullshit.")
Over the course…Continue
One of my favorite themes is that science and technology will make life increasingly unlike the kind of life we genetically evolved in. Civilization becomes an increasing complex experiment involving numerous cultures. This particular video doesn't exactly address what I think is the heart of that theme, but it's novel and interesting, nonetheless.
The Mormon church recently formalized their homophobic hate by making gay hate a part of their policy. Children of gay parents (which the church hates) cannot be Mormons unless they also hate their parents and renounce them. If this isn't a case of inciting hatred...I don't know what is. Fortunately...some Mormons with a sense of humanity left the church in a …Continue
Are you a theist that would like me to convert to your religion? I will happily become a Christian or a Muslim if you can describe your God to me and offer me some objective evidence as to why I should trust what you are telling me to be true.
When I say “evidence” I mean even a tiny scrap of something that is tangible, that exists outside of your mind. I am not asking for, or even expecting any “Proofs”. Just something I could later build upon as my understanding of your (my) God…Continue
My grandmother passed away in her sleep yesterday after over 90 years of blasting through life with passion, generosity and unbounded love. She supported every interest I had (buying my first piano and saying bravo loudly...if...and only if I had finally reached my goal and played it well). That's the kind of encouragement you need. The same goes with my studies, sports, love for travel and my intellectual interests. She was cheap with the little things and price didn't matter for the big…Continue
Lions a mere 12,000 years mummied...have been found rather well preserved...and as cute as heck. The first image is one of the cubs. I decided to look at images of other mummified animals and placed them below to share with you. Some were mummified by egyptians and neighbours...others by nature. The second last one is the human animal (a siberian mummified which had tattoos) and the last one was a hoax of a…Continue
Not that anyone is surprised but group prejudice (or bias) is linked to sky God thinking and one-with-the-conscious-spirit-of-the-world. I've only read the abstract and will try to read the article...though not sure I'll understand it.…Continue
