[Okay, I'm gonna try this again. The first time I did this post, everything disappeared except for the first paragraph.]
A couple days ago, a 7-year-old girl in Illinois went missing. Of course, a Facebook friend (a Christian) posted a plea for prayers for the missing girl. The next day, a body was found, and it turned out to be the murdered little girl. Her uncle is being held in custody, presumably as a suspect in her murder. So the Christian Facebook friend…Continue
I just read an article this morning online about a group teens in Oklahoma who randomly shot and killed an Australian collage student and claim they did it "for the fun of it". All I can think of is, what is wrong with these kids?
"...Charged with first-degree murder are Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and…
My first car was a white 1964 Barracuda. I was pretty proud of it. I suppose having my own car at age 16 helped me develop a proper sense of responsibility and independence. Those things are important. But that's not where this story is going.
One night I was on a camp-out fishing trip with some friends. The…

So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the LORD commanded. Aaron cast down his staff before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers, and they, the magicians of Egypt, also did the same by their secret arts. – Exodus 7:10-11
Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded. In the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants he lifted up the staff and struck the water in the Nile, and all the water…

According to this news article, Christians are under attack just because they are Christian. Hrm... funny thing - again, it is NOT Atheists who are attacking them. Instead the Christians are being attacked by Mohammedans.
Christians like to say that they are being attacked, even when they aren't, such as when Atheists bring up the fact that there is zero proof…

While the tragedy in Norway happened by a lone wolf - let's not forget the true horrors of Islam. Please tell me people - when does something like this happen among Christians? Let's not be politically correct in realizing the real threats facing humanity as a whole is not "Christian" or "right-wing" terror but Islamic terror...
I just used StumbleUpon and found this page: http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/atrocities.html.
The first chart was interesting, showing how many people have been killed for other reasons than religion. Most of those were due to land and power struggles, invasions, and corrupt or inept governments. However, every one of those countries or groups had religion of some sort (even the Mongols, who were…Continue
Oxford philosopher Peter Millican, in this free series on philosophy (you should download it and listen to it – it’s free!), raises a very simple challenge to biblical innerancy. I’ve adapted it slightly below:
1. Commanding genocide is not morally praiseworthy.
2. Every act of God is morally praiseworthy.
3. God commands genocide in the Bible.
4. Therefore, not everything in…Continue
Me and my wife had a very interesting talk yesterday. She mentioned something I thought would be good post to the free thinking people of T/A. (I put it in blog form to keep better track of it)
How can there be a true (100%) free thinker?
She mention that it would not be possible to be one because every one has a bias.
For example murder- we will make an assessment of the act without knowing what is actually…Continue

I had just come on break when our translator asked me,
"Are their any virgin girls in America?"
At the time I was serving as a gate guard on FOB Diamondback in Mosul Iraq and was about halfway through my deployment. The question took me aback. What, did he think that American girls are somehow not born virgins? Or that doctors de-virgify them when they're born, kinda like the way boys get circumcised?…Continue
