There are various denominations of Christianity such as Baptists and Pentecostals, which believe in a form "rapture, and this post is an explanation of this belief, and why it is, according to Jesus, moot. It is only the supposed words of Paul that have Christians in a tizzy wondering when/if they will be "caught in the clouds" with their god, which illustrates Paul's authority over that of Jesus.

As an opener I'd like to state that my worldview has absolutely nothing to do with my atheism. I like to think that were I a theist I would still hold life, the universe, and everything in exactly the same regards. This post is not intended to answer any questions about nor explain my view on theism. Correlation does not imply causation. That being said, let us proceed.
Where did we… Continue

I saw this today on my Facebook's homepage. Although the situation may not be funny, what my "ghetto" cousin said makes it so. Also, I edited the first part of the page. The OP had mentioned his full name, address, and everything. Since I couldn't find anything in the news about it, I decided to not disclose his personal information.… Continue

I am a former Atheist. Oh, I grew up in the Church. My parents were Catholic, but that didn’t work for me – and sometime in junior high I told them I didn’t believe in God. That honestly may have been just a case of a teenager trying to get under his parent’s skin, but as time went on my doubt became real. In high school I started preparing for a career as a journalist – was trained to question everything. I spent my adult life in that line of work and saw and reported on a number of… Continue

This is a shortened version of my second post in a series on the New Testament Gospels. My first post was on whether the Gospel writers were eyewitnesses. Now, I’ll turn my attention to the contradictions between the Gospels.
Regardless of what anyone says, the Gospels do contain prima facie… Continue

So, I'm watching The 19th Wife on LMN--a movie with murder and Mormons--when the doorbell rings and a couple of young Jehovah's Witness bible thumpers want to read me some scripture and give me a booklet. This isn't the first time this group has visited my house, but it was the first time I was home alone and the one to answer the door. As soon as I knew what was about to happen I regretted my decision to answer the door immediately. They were very young--I'm 22 and they were noticeably… Continue

At 10:36 pm on a Thursday night somewhere in Upstate New York, Jesus Christ himself walked through the door of an all night diner. The diner, which for the past few years had gone by the name of Jeff’s (named after the owner himself), had been owned… Continue

10. No one will kill you for not drinking Beer.
9. Beer doesn't tell you how to have sex.
8. Beer has never caused a major war.
7. They don't force Beer on minors who can't think for themselves.
6. When you have a Beer, you don't knock on people's doors trying to give it away.
5. Nobody's ever been burned at the stake, hanged, or tortured over his brand of… Continue

This is a fiction story I wrote that was originally featured on my fiction blog, http://pumpingkeys.blogspot.com, which features a new fiction story daily. Enjoy.

This is a further response after watching a video posted here earlier about this kid was seemingly being fooled around that Jesus made a lightning appear
Kids of the religious are seem to be unlucky these days. If they’re not being molested by pedophile pastors, or getting married at the age of 13 to their 50+ year old religious founder… The adults are embedding these superstitious practices…

[THIS IS THE CONTINUATION OF THE PREVIOUS ARTICLE. THIS ONE IS MORE INTERESTING TO ME PERSONALLY BECAUSE IT'S MORE OF A ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE PAGE OWNER TOM]
Tom: Um no [ME], other way around. If either A or B, if not A, then B. That is sound tested philosophy. Thus, argumentally speaking, either side could prove one side right by proving the other side wrong. Besides, what person in the world would ever believe anything that they cannot see the evidence of? Totally ignorant from a… Continue

So I was heading to my part-time job today and I was running a bit late.
On my way towards the campus bus stop, I saw that Campus Pro-Lifers had their gruesome posters up (you know, the ones with dead fetuses and all that...). Next to them were campus pro-choice- a civilized bunch who were simply dissing the living jesus out of those low-lifers. With Christ and all that crap, the low-life pro-life bunch had put on quite the gong show.
So I dashed by and I quickly yelled "You… Continue

I've been blogging at Hot-For-Jesus Former Fundie

Yeah, that's right! I'm one of those godless heathen non-believers, and I say that your holy book is full of inaccuracies! It's not historically reliable at all, let alone divine and inerrant!

we can all relax.
I didn't watch it the first few times I saw it linked, because I read the summary and it just sounded depressing. Eventually I caved in and witnessed the nightmare for myself.
