Why do we believe in God?

I was listening to Heart and Soul on BBC a few weeks back. The presenter has been searching for faith for years. His latest try was to interview teachers of various religions. He gave them 'thirty minutes to convert him'. Among the presenter's arguments against faith is that there is too much random... Sign in to see full entry.

Who wants to be a doormat?

Give me an inch, I'll take a few kilometres. That’s the sad fact about human nature. You give the average person a slight gap and they’ll stretch it for all it’s worth. You’re nice to someone, and rather than appreciate it, they find ways to use it. That’s why the ‘meek’ often become doormats. On... Sign in to see full entry.

Can abstinence survive the 21sr century?

A certain group in Kampala has convinced teens that abstinence is cool. It’s now the ‘in thing’ to be pure. That’s a miracle! And it’s a good thing for obvious reasons: HIV / AIDS; unplanned pregnancies. The key argument against abstinence is that practice makes perfect. That argument makes sense -...

I am not religious - part 2

Lots of people play God, but I’m glad I’m not Him. Picture this. Two people are praying in the same house. One wants rain, so his crops can grow - his child has just starved to death. The other wants sunshine on her wedding day. Multiply this by the 6 billion people on earth and their billions of... Sign in to see full entry.

I am not religious - part 1

First of all, I am not religious. I am a believer. The difference is religion is about rules, dogma, tradition, ritual. Lots of people go to church, mosque, synagogue, temple or sacred trees out of habit rather than conviction. But being a believer is about faith. It’s about knowing why you do what...

Tick tock tick tock

How do you tell the time? Some people read the sun, some read sundials, some have digital watches, some have clock faces, some use radios…most use their cell phones. When the biological clock starts ticking, we read it in different ways too. Some people start Project daddy or project mummy tactics.... Sign in to see full entry.

Do not disturb

We can learn a lot of life lessons from the garden of Eden - some good, some bad. For example - the best way to get someone to do something is to tell them not to. If you look at anything long enough, it will start to look attractive. A good way to avoid temptation is to stay away from it - hence we... Sign in to see full entry.

Was it really a tree?

The tree of knowledge of good and evil. God put Adam and Eve in paradise and gave them one rule: Don't eat it. They couldn't do it. Chances are if God hadn't put the condition, they'd have left the tree alone. You know how us humans love to break rules. God knows it too, and he knew that by telling... Sign in to see full entry.

Battle of the sexes

It’s a general belief that the battle of the sexes started in the garden of Eden. Something about Eve getting Adam into trouble and getting cursed to be his eternal underling. It’s also a general belief that at creation, men and women were equal, hence she was made from his rib, to spend her life at... Sign in to see full entry.

Is God a matchmaker? - section 3

I know, I know, I’m a 21st century girl too. I’m proactive. The whole sitting around thing is overrated. But that God’s way. And the reason there are so many divorces and broken relationships is because we’re doing it our way. Us girls are chasing, and ending up with Seth instead of Adam. And the...
