Breeding to believe

It has always confused me that people in the mental health field do not immediately recognize that Abraham was a paranoid schizophrenic (he demonstrates practically every symptom in the DSM-IV for the illness.) Religious people suffer from a neurological disorder that they have been selecting for for thousands of generations. Religious people have been removing the skeptical, the unbeliever, from the gene pool by killing them. So we now have a significant portion of the population that accepts… Continue

Faith

Today, we're going to talk about faith.



You can't say I don't tackle the Big Important Topics here. In this one post, I'm going to cover the entire foundation of almost every religion in the history of ever, the pillar on which all theology is founded, and the subject over which perhaps more hours of scholarly work and profound philosophising has taken place over the centuries than any other. The one elusive, ethereal concept whose significance has plagued the most enlightened and… Continue

Wotan Hears A Cthulhu!

This was also posted over at Cubik's Rube.




I just watched the film Horton Hears A Who!. It was very philosophically troubling.



No, really.



I never read the book, so this rant will apply to the movie version only. And I'm sure this is one of those times where Your Mileage My Vary, as to how much I should be reading into all this or whether any of it… Continue

Faith of the faithless

This, and so much more, was also posted over at my blog, Cubik's Rube.




Let's own up to a dark and terrible truth.



We atheists all know that we have just as much faith in unproven superstitions as the religious people we so gleefully despise. I mean, secretly, we're all well aware that our beloved "science" is just another way of seeing the world, dependent on at least as much blind belief as, say, fundamentalist… Continue

Defend Your Unbelief

Have you ever had someone say something to you and you came up with the perfect response to that person...a day later? It has happened to me seemingly thousands of times, whether in argument or being insulted or trying to flirt with a pretty girl, I always seem to find the scathing remark or witty retort that will achieve instant victory and secure my place as a silver tongued devil well after the fact.

Devil Debate

ABC recently hosted a debate among a four-panel group about the existence of Satan. Satan believers included pastor Mark Driscoll and former prostitute, Annie Lobert, founder of Hookers for Jesus. Nonbelievers were Bishop Carlton Pearson and Dr. Deepak Chopra, physician and writer on spirituality and mind-body medicine.



Like me, you might be wondering why a former prostitute and a spiritual…
