A young saudi writer, Hamza Kashgari, has fled the country for fear for his safety after receiving many death threats through the social media (twitter, youtube, facebook...etc.) Hamza is now detained by the Malaysian government after the King of Saudi Arabia requested his extradition to Saudi. We beg of you to help us with all you can to prevent his extradition to Saudi, as this may threaten his life.
The story started on Saturday, when Hamza wrote three… Continue

Over a month ago, I was asked by a friend who is also a youth pastor to read “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist.” After some digging, it seems the YP wants to have an open discussion and listen to my opinion regarding the book. Hopefully, these are his true intentions.
With that in mind, I saw this as an opportunity to refresh my knowledge in apologetics and to show that atheists… Continue

As some of you may know, a friend of a friend asked me to read "I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist" by Frank Turek. [Click here for the original post] The plan was to read the first seven chapters and we would then get together for a 'discussion'. I did that, as agreed. However, I didn't just read the book...I completely tore it apart...Word for Word...Accusation after… Continue

**Update** Well ladies and gents, I have some pretty interesting news. The y.pastor hasn't even read the book yet. He was hoping that we would all read it at the same time & then discuss it. (It really silly to recommend a "good book" without actually reading it first-though, this is what they do with their Bible every day) He has also stated that his goal is not to convert me but to have an open discussion and that he does have questions for me (I'm assuming "how do you believe life got… Continue

You have been with me through the Taiwanese underwater earthquake that killed my internet for over a month on the island of Koh Samui.
You have been with me when I literally had to scale a godamned mountain in Vietnam to get cell phone coverage to upload contributions to this site.
You have been with me through protests in Phuket, Songkran in Pattaya and schooling in Scotland.
So before we get started on this new journey, how about you just tell me what works out… Continue

John 20:24-30: Jesus Appears to Thomas
24 Now Thomas, also known as Didymus, not to be confused with P.Diddy, or Dino (pronounced dee-no) from Hanna-Barbera’s beloved The Flintstones---was one of the twelve. He wasn’t hanging out with the other eleven when Jesus came. … Continue

Can everyone just stop being so disenfranchised and overly critical for just one day?
I’m a skeptic and probably a bit of a cynic, too, but I’m actually tired of hearing everyone’s moans of disapproval (said disapprovingly). PZ Myers and Chris Hitchens ripped the Rally to Restore Sanity Continue
to Shreds. It’s…

Who Told You That You Are A Sinner?
Your church? But wait, don't fret! There's a magic cure, and your church

Did Adam And Eve Sin?
They disobeyed God by eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (right and wrong). So, yes...Right?
Just one problem. How could Adam and Eve have been expected… Continue

Of all the days of my 13th summer in Paskaloochee, none stands out so clearly as the day Bent Turner completely lost his mind. He had always been a little off; thus the name, Bent. What his true first name was I never bothered to ask. Bent he was to the town, the nomenclature applied with varying degrees of affection depending upon factors such as age, social status, or denominational affiliation. I say denominational rather than religious, for all in my hometown claimed kinship in the same… Continue

In regards to Surviving a Cardiac Arrest-I have been told by Chirstians and Catholics that prayers can really help. If the Patient survies they take credit for it if he dies well "God was to busy" or had another purpose for the Patient.
In my experience Patients survive a rescusitation from Cardiac Arrest d/t a few factors:
-Down time-Brain death, hypoxia
-Physical condition (progression and type of disease pathology present pre… Continue

So first off, apparently a group of Internet Christians have been trying to get people on YouTube to... well what they're trying to do is actually my first question. I don't know what their intent is. Some of my vidder friends (we all are the vidding community because we all make fanvideos - music videos using clips from our favorite movies and TV shows) said they had received similar messages in the past. I talk to many of these vidder friends of mine on twitter, so to share my extreme… Continue

I have done a series of posts in the past on how to deal with people who go around knocking on doors for the lord. Some of my suggestions were not that nice. And I have to admit normally I try to be civil with theses people,my son got tagged by the latest church group,He is 19 yrs old and I was quite impressed by his approach something I have never even thought of. The fundy woman at the door started in with her pitch ,and my son simply said so"Sorry were Jewish". without even blinking an eye… Continue

I used to argue with a group of right wing radical religious fundamentalists about this very issue. They swore up and down that man was "incapable" of affecting the earth's climate through our industries' pollution. They would repeatedly cite cases of areas having the "coldest winter on record" as "evidence" that global warming was a hoax and just a way for "leftists" to make money. I pointed out the actual evidence of the historical temperature records since the industrial revolution showing… Continue
