The Myth of the Risen Christ - The Problem of the Historical Jesus & The Origins of Christian Tradition

Last night I posted a video of an interview with Dr. Matt McCormick that argues against the reliability for the evidence of Jesus’ resurrection by comparing it to the Salem Witch Trials. The argument is amusing and reasonably makes sense, although in an interview he had on Think Atheist Radio, May, 8th, he admitted he didn’t think anyone would really bite on the bullet, so to speak. It turns out that there exist those who have.

 

One of the people commenting on the…

Book Review: The Good Atheist - That's what he/she said!

I bent the binding of The Good Atheist, Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God, by Dan Barker, in hopes that I would either come out of it in some way affirmed or finally have a resource for a person struggling with the decision to let go of their faith.  When I closed the book, I felt like a sore eared member of the choir.  The majority of Barker’s book is an appeal to authority and celebrity, a mishap of astonishing proportion when speaking about, to, or for, a community that…

I will no longer hide my atheism.

For years now, I have struggled with the idea that I may loose friends and family because of my beliefs, or lack thereof. I've sat on the sidelines while people speak of their god, usually just nodding along in agreement. In the recent months, I've noticed that I have been unable to hold onto this mask. I no longer held my head down in prayer, just waiting for it to be over. I hold my head up and do not acknowledge the ritual. Some may feel that this is disrespectful. I do not feel this way…

the man who would be jesus



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…

The Hebrew Game of Numbers

Numerology is a form of divination or fortune telling. It is in league with astrology, although, maybe not as popular. But it was quite popular in the ancient world. The Hebrew people of ancient Israel apparently had their own form of Numerology.

 

Oh! Numerology is based on the idea that numbers have certain magical properties, some are blessed, some are curse, some tell your future or your personality, etc. [Perhaps the superstitous fear of the number 13 is related…

Debate #1 with Creationism and the Origin of Life

So, there is a group on Facebook called Creationism and the Origin of Life. The admin on this group is pretty much a tyrannical dictator who will delete your posts if he disagrees with you, if you don't capitalise the "G" in the word god (no matter what the context), and has a lot of other ridiculous rules. Anyway, before I get booted from his discussions I decided to at least attempt to debate him. If anyone could help me out with how to respond to some of these posts I would appreciate…

The Universe: Abandoned by the black void of God.

In my quest to find God, I turned to science. In my quest to replace God with something more substantial, I discovered the wonders of the Universe and the possibilities I thought it could offer the human race.



Upon my personal realization that the supernatural God is, in all probability, not real, I thought that it would only make sense to turn that awe-inspired emotion we call "spirituality" to something that couldn't… Continue

Defeating the Bible , One chapter at a Time! (Genesis Chapter 4)

Chapter 4 hath arrived!!

Let’s groove tonight!!

 

“The man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, "I have produced a man with the help of the LORD." Next she bore his brother Abel. Abel became a keeper of flocks, and Cain a tiller of the soil. In the course of time Cain brought an offering to the LORD from the fruit of the soil, while Abel, for his part, brought one of the best firstlings of his flock. The LORD looked with favor on…

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

When two adolescent owls are relocated, they are faced with a choice: go along with it, or do the right thing. Drawing from the great stories of yore, the animated Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is an aesthetic wonderment that captured my attention and used the occasional depth of plot to hold me tight.



The cynical Kludd (Ryan Kwanten), his cheerful brother Soren (Jim Sturgess), and their freakishly adorable little sister Egaltine (Adreinne DeFaria) live nestled safely… Continue

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…

Clash of the titans

Well, the good thing is that my husband and I have been married for 6 years and we don't throw shit and scream at each other ;o). Today he felt the need to remind me of how good god is. I chose to ask him if he was talking about the same god that allows billions of his christians to suffer from diabetes, cancer and all kinds of diseases after he promised you guys he would heal you? I told him I dont believe or want to even acknowledeg a god like that.If his god is so real why doesn't he heal… Continue

Book Review - Jesus for the Non-Religious

My father-in-law is a former member of the clergy. He became a priest so that he could travel the world (mostly Asia) to help poor people. He did this for many years until he saw the the main goal of the church's effort was to expand the flock and the (distant) second goal was to help people.



Anyway, he still considers himself to be a Christian but he is sickened by the direction of modern religion. He knows that I am a non-theist and recommended "Jesus for the Non Religious". The… Continue
