I need to show this to my atheist brothers before I start attempting this on theists.
Please berate me as much as possible. All I ask is you try to disprove my claim. I know the burden of proof is on the claimant, but as we understand logical absolutes, there is a point where only a disproof will do.
Existence is. The Statement.
It is 1. And it is not 1. At the same time. And 0 is the end?
Existence is. This is the logic chain.
This is a title of an etching by Francisco Goya. “The Sleep of Reason brings forth Monsters” Christopher Hitchens has the picture on the inside cover of his book “God is not Great”. I only discovered this recently as I have only ever known the book as an audio book. It was a serendipitous discovery for me as I have had those same Spanish words…Continue

I remember summers on the beach in Daytona, sea-foam on the night-shore, wind on my cheeks. I can remember the taste of those days, sweet, bitter. I can never forget the salty-smell of the water lapping on the shore, the waves crashing, redoubling, riding forth again into the barren desert of abandoned coolers, umbrellas, and towels. Those were the days you could drift out to sea, forget your name, start over as you baked in the warm sun, enveloped in the sweet scent of sun-tan lotion, the…Continue

Here are some of the Sunni/Shia' issues from my own perspective.
Well, as far as we know that thses issues are the most complicated issues in Islam..
I'll write here some few information about this mess..
~One of the issues here is: Who's going to be a Caliph after the death of Muhammed Sunnis say: Muhammed chose Abu Bakr as a Caliph.. Shia say: Muhammed chose Ali as a Caliph..…Continue
Liberal Christians, in my honest opinion, are just goosestepping agnosticism and ultimately, their true atheistic feelings and skepticism. A liberal Christian is like an atheist apologist. Too afraid to have unpopular opinions and too weak to stand up for them.
Recently a friend and I were discussing an episode of "The Cleveland Show", where a character is asked whether or not he is an atheist. The animated thirteen year old character said that he prefers not to use the…
The Christian bible never tells anyone what happened to Jesus from when he was a kid to when the story picks back up at 33. So I have taken the liberty to making up a timeline of the missing years of Jesus. Enjoy!
The Missing Years of Jesus
If there is any text in the bible that presents us with a clear cut case against god, it’s the Book of Job. If it isn’t an outright cry for atheism then, at the very least, if you still insist on theism, you might find yourself saying, “Not this god.”…Continue

Theatre of Blood is the first horror flick I recall ever seeing.
I saw this film in the early 70’s when a network station broadcast it edited for television. I was 7 or 8 and my older cousins were all hanging out in the dark with the eerie glow of the…Continue

I like the idea that this article is trying to get across. i think it would have more power if the Iliad replaced the Odyssey as the comparative tool though. The main thrust of the article is a very good point about historical value and have thought this to be a fascinating concept. And although the odyssey gave some insight into the thought process or psyche of early bronze age people, I don't think it as historically valuable as the Iliad.
One reason for this - Arthur Schliemann…Continue
It's Draw Muhammed Day meets "The Rapture", coincidence?... I don't think so.
I predict this wouldn't set well over where Muslim extremists' at, raging all fury, and, perhaps, furry wrath. That will, subsequently, draw a snowball effect, rekindling the horror of both The Crusade/The Inquisition, in which they(fundies of the Abrahamic faith), all gather near the holy lands, in a vicious holywar that would end in killing them…Continue
Billy Graham and many, many other Christian people get together to host "Rock The Fort." A convention full of Jesus-lovers that takes place on America's military bases. Now, you would think that the separation of church and state would apply here but good 'ol America ignored that part and funded the event.
From Rock Beyond Belief…Continue
