The ID proponents are at it again . . .

As we witness an ever growing battle between two divergent camps here in North America, there is a definitive ebb and flow to this escalating conflict. On one side we have science, it's professionals and it's institutions not giving an inch in allowing the premise of Intelligent Design (ID) to be... Sign in to see full entry.

My religion is better than yours

That about sums up the mentality of some people. After one gets over the shock of finding so many people here on Blogit adhering to a fundamentalist mindset, other little realizations don't hit you over the head quite as hard but still make you wonder. Satan is a good one, I still can't get over how... Sign in to see full entry.

Give me your best God salespitch

It has been over 5 years now, going on 6 that I have been on this site. What I have learned about what other people believe has been an eye opener. The most surprising aspect has been not so much in what they believe but in how they came to their beliefs. This is followed closely by how universally... Sign in to see full entry.

Replace the bible with Star Trek's Prime Directive

...and I'm only half kidding when I say this. The Star Trek series, all five of them, The Original, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyageur and Enterprise all had one thing in common. They treated religious beliefs for the most part as a joke. They also advanced some very worthy, albeit... Sign in to see full entry.

What some people believe still surprises me

In the past when I have discussed demons, some of the comments have been quite entertaining. Sure, there have been warnings that Satan will make me eat my words or even better, a few testimonials from people who claim to have witnessed the ol Beezlebub himself in action. One Blogger became quite... Sign in to see full entry.

My proudest day as a Canadian citizen

Was the day they legalized same sex marriage. For a heterosexual to say such a thing one has to understand the issue thoroughly and look at it from a broad perspective. It is after all not my cause but this is true only in the strictest sense. To ignore all of the underlying premises of equal... Sign in to see full entry.

Why can't we hybridize our beliefs?

If you were to give this question some thought the "why can't we" is quickly replaced with "we must". Considering that there is not one person on this planet that follows the bible to the letter for example, then it could be said that hybridizing beliefs is common practice. At least in the Christian... Sign in to see full entry.

Get at least this much straight

To know what an atheist is and the difference between an atheist and an agnostic,... some basic dictionary definitions are a good start....ya think? Atheism: is the condition of being without theistic beliefs, or the disbelief in the existence of deities. Someone who believes that there is no God or... Sign in to see full entry.

Did Jesus know how to read and write?

Considering that not one word written by him exists anywhere, it is reasonable to assume that he was illiterate, which would not be unusual during his time but what of his apostles and other followers? Are we to believe that not one person in this entire very large group could read or write as well?... Sign in to see full entry.

I'll put in a good word for you with God

Have you ever noticed how the notions of judgement day, entering heaven or being condemned to hell for all eternity, quite often carry with them an attitude that implies: sorry about your luck sucker? According to many a bible lobotomized blogger that has stopped into this blog over the years, I am... Sign in to see full entry.
