In The Middle

I feel strange posting on this blog because while I am not a believer in the Christian God I am not a true atheist either. I consider myself spiritual because of the near death experience I had over 20 years ago. I am sort of in the middle. When I post on religious message boards, they don't like me because I don't believe in their doctrine. I usually get called something with the word satan or devil in it. Then when I post on atheist blogs they believe I am delusional or at least misguided.… Continue

The Last Airbender: Gotta love the anti-atheist message in that movie.

The Last Airbender does not just bend air to his will, he is in charge of keeping the world in balance – but he is not ready for the task. Atrocious writing is the pustule on a strikingly beautiful movie with decent acting and captivating action sequences.

While out hunting, Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), of the water tribe, find a frozen sphere with a boy and his floating beast of burden inside. When he escapes the bubble, the brother and sister realize he… Continue

Help fight child molestation by catholic priests one community at a time!

An Open Letter to My Fellow Godless Heathens,



I am really desperate here. I have been called a bigot for speaking out against the Catholic church! If it at all possible I would really appreciate a tweet in support (if you are in agreement of course) of my essay that challenges the Pope and the laity in their handling of the continuing problem of priests raping and molesting young children. My editorial was published in the Wednesday Journal a local newspaper in Oak Park, IL which is… Continue

“Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the animals that the LORD God had made. The serpent asked the woman, "Did God really tell you not to eat from any of the trees

in the garden?" The woman answered the serpent: "We may eat of the

escape from the land of the dead

finally, after five years in florida, i will be heading back to the bronx next month. i am so glad that i will finally escape this state. there are tons of great people in florida, and a lot of atheist and freethinker groups, but most are a good drive from me, and i never get to go to any of the meetings. i've yet to even attend a meeting for the local freethinker group because of scheduling conflicts.

it's going to be an interesting move. although i'll be moving to a much more liberal… Continue

Defeating the Bible--One Chapter at a Time (Genesis Chapter 1)

This is to become a new segment I will be posting on Think Atheist and on Atheist Nexus.

The point of this new series of blog posts would be the weekly defeating of a chapter of the Christian Bible.



That said, let us start; in the beginning. (Pun intended)



In the first chapter of Genesis the creation of the world—in the Christian view—takes six days with one day for relaxation.



“In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was… Continue

To defeat the Enemy, One must know the Enemy!

The Threat of Theism is too great for Humanity to endure for another decade. Already we see societies based around the preservation and even the continued existence of the dangerous thought of ‘Theism’. Much of humanity has been harmed by the existence of this damaging thought. ‘Theism’ has brought the Dark Ages unto humanity, and strangled scientific thought, while spilling lies of their mission for ‘Peace on Earth’ and ‘Good will to all men’.



How have our brethren on Atheist Nexus… Continue

The Lovely Bones - Toothpaste and Orange Juice

In The Lovely Bones, a young girl struggles to reach out to her grieving, self-destructive father as he tries to solve her death. Segmented bits of semi-connected subplots sever the audience’s connection to the story.



Jack Salmon’s (Mark Wahlberg) world comes crumbling down around him when his daughter Susie (Saoirse Ronan) disappears on her way home from school. Even as time passes, he cannot let her go and obsesses about where she is, if she is alive and who killed her if she was… Continue

Christianity and the Bible are scientifically proven... don't you know that?

The following conversation is real. It was held with an acquaintance of mine via Facebook. I'm Jared. I decided to leave her spelling errors for effect. Also, I now realize that it's 42 virgins, not 7, but the point was made.

We can learn something from James Arthur Ray

I’ve been thinking about the James Arthur Ray situation. You know, the guy who was on Oprah talking about “The Secret?” The one who killed three people by tricking them into fasting for days and then shutting them up in a sweat lodge so they could have visions and learn to become “spiritual warriors?” Yeah, him.



Did you know that he was charging as much as $9,000 a head for his five day retreat? Just to not feed people and stuff them in a hot tent while he regurgitated the crap from… Continue

God is not the Creator, claims academic

Link I'm not going to comment too much on this right now as I want to absorb it. There are those like Nelson (get on it) whom are better at handling very complex stories steeped in history like this. I just thought that it's a story that shouldn't be missed.



The notion of God as the Creator is wrong, claims a top academic, who believes the Bible… Continue

One, Two and a Few Sentence Movie Reviews

It has been a crazy couple of weeks and writing has not come easily so I just threw together these short reviews of GI Joe, Julie and Julia, Away we Go, and Aliens in the Attic as well as a complete review on District 9.



Aliens in the Attic


After an hour of dimwitted dialogue, the alien planet the antagonists hail from becomes a viable option to escape the mind-numbing effects of this movie.



Away We Go

A surprisingly mature look at love,… Continue

Harry Potter and the Half Assed Film

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is the sixth movie in Harry Potter film series. Too dependent on previous films or expecting the audience to have read the books, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince fails to develop into a complete movie.



Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is whisked away by his professor and fellow wizard Dumbledore (Michael Gambon )to meet with Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent) to encourage him to return to his professorship at Hogwarts School. Harry and… Continue

Carnival of the Godless

I don't know how many people here follow a lot of blogs (I know Nelson does, and Syn, and some others), but for those who may not, I thought I'd point out a blogging event known as the Carnival of the Godless.



The Carnival moves from blog to blog, being hosted at a different one each time. It consists of a collection of links to various blog posts, submitted by bloggers to the host. It servers a couple worthwhile… Continue

Proof there is no god...

I purchased "The god delusion" maybe 2 years ago and read it and fell in love with it. Its funny, and I enjoy Dawkins writing style.



But My favourite part of the book is where he quotes Gaskings reconstructed "proof of goods non existence" by W. Grey:



1.The creation of the world is the most marvelous achievement imaginable.

2.The merit of an achievement is the product of (a) its intrinsic quality, and (b) the ability of its creator.

3.The greater the disability,… Continue

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Review: Action + Action + Action + Action + Action

When a subway car is taken hostage, it’s left to the dispatcher to save the passengers from the gunmen. Packed with action and sprinkled with emotion, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, based on a book of the same name by John Godey, is a satisfying action-packed escape.



Walter Garber (Denzel Washington) is directing motormen through the tunnels of the New York Subway when armed men take control of a train. Ryder (John Travolta), the leader of the team of gunmen, reaches out to Garber… Continue

Land of the Lost Review - American Cheese

Dr. Rick Marshall, bent on proving his crack-pot theory, is literally dumped into a land with dinosaurs, distant primates and evil alien overlords. Land of the Lost suffers from a lack of comedic timing, outdated effects, pitiful editing, and painfully shallow writing, but offers plain silliness as a consolation prize.



Disgraced and outcast, Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Farrell) is inspired to finish his work by graduate student Holly Cantrell (Anna Friel). Using the newly finished… Continue
