If You're the Smartest Person In The Room... You're In The Wrong Room.

I wanted to contribute my current day-to-day experience which shares much in common with those posting and agreeing that "They Can't  Live On This Planet Anymore!" and to offer what helps me through it every day.

When I'm not developing lectures and multimedia pieces for Innerspace Labs, (please see my profile for fun bits about that!), I pay the rent working as a supervisor in a print center.

It is, indeed a struggle, as my workplace is made up of proudly fundamentalist…

Catholic priests are really athiests at heart?

It is certainly true that there are numerous inconsistencies in all religious belief systems. As to Christianity and Catholicism specifically there seems to be a high incidence of pedophilia. Members of the Catholic clergy, especially priests, seem to have a high propensity to commit this crime.  Living a celibate existence is no excuse to commit these atrocities. But what really blows my hair back is that these pathetic individuals who fondle and abuse children and young men do so with the…

Irish Census - Seems Irish mammies are not fans of accurate census data / letting their kids think for themselves.

So it was census night last night in Ireland and I happily ticked 'No Religion' on my form.

I just saw on Twitter someone compiled a picture of a few tweets they saw where the decision was taken from people. If this person saw this amount just from friends/people he follows, just imagine the actual figure countrywide.

A Declaration To The Conquistadores by Pope Julius II

Of all these nations God our Lord gave charge to one man, called St. Peter, that he should be Lord and Superior of all the men in the world, that all should obey him, and that he should be the head of the whole human race, wherever men should live, and under whatever law, sect, or belief they should be; and he gave him the world for his kingdom and jurisdiction.

And he commanded him to place his seat in Rome, as the spot most fitting…

The Day the Catholic Church Dies

The day the Church dies there will be no sounds of joy among the godless:

No horns blown or parades thrown,

Rejoicing in the streets or marching to the beat,

No angels from Heaven to smite us down,

No Devil to laugh at our descent.

The end of the world will still belong to the sun,

When the Church takes its final breath

On a day no different than today

In a world with problems unfit for gods.

Where a frock is suitable only for Halloween;

A relic of a…

Religious Responsibility

This is an Op-Ed that I wrote for OpEdnews.com. Monicks has been asking me to post it here, so I hope you all enjoy it...



Have you ever read your terms of use for Facebook? How about Google? If you did, there would be some phrases, if you can decipher them in the jargon, which you may find objectionable. However, they are tools for the modern world, and you would probably continue to utilize them anyway, knowing full well that they are, using… Continue

Suffering and The Shroud

From Catholic News Service



Pope Benedict spent May 2 by visiting Turin, Italy, where he celebrated an outdoor mass and knelt in silent prayer before the Shroud of Turin, which many Catholics still believe to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.



After spending time… Continue

Worst religion?

What are your thoughts on what is the worst religion around? In my opinion it is the Catholic church. From a biblical perspective they got it all wrong. But far worse then that they have been the most violent over the years, i.e. the crusades(the pope actually supported the killings of "infidels" the same as the Muslims do today), the killings of millions over the centuries through various inquisitions, Hitler was a Catholic, they have used confession as a form of blackmail for political… Continue

So I found this first communion photo in my grandma's "Isabella" album.

I kind of want to frame it.

Catholics move over, Sunni Islam is now the biggest cult

I forget what inspired me to look up this in the first place, but I have said in the past that if Catholics were not considered christians then guess what the biggest religion is? Catholicism!!!

but I thought i'd check my facts seeing how i hadn't checked in a while in regard to the split of percentages in relation to Sunni and Shi'a Islam ...



it turns out that the Sunni make up 85% of Islam and Shi'a the rest at…
