The Deception of Belief

Recently I was in a debate on religion with ex-family members. And as always the theists were unable to argue away their inconsistencies or contradictions that are in the bible that shows it was written by men. The ending result like most debates on religion I've gotten into ended with this line "I'll believe what I want and you can believe what you want..."

This "right to belief" continued to bug me, but why?

I got to thinking, why does that not only bother me, but…

Romney's running mate energizes both sides... I bet it did.

This morning, Romney has introduced a unique stimulus package, where as selecting his running mate will create a wider sector for comedians, and thus generate more money for them, which will generate more tax revenue... 

It's called "Trickle Out Laughter Economics", where the steady pace of jokes will boost the economy...

The Founding Fathers were Secularists.

I hear Christians and those on the "right" making the claim of how we should return our country to the way it was when the founding fathers started it. As if the founding fathers created the United States to be a Christian nation, they didn't. Most of the people who came to America prior to the creation of the United States and after, will cite their coming to the US for economic and/or religious freedom and this is well documented. In the case of religious freedom, one has to ask: if the…
