The worthiness hierarchy

It can be said that one of the subliminal effects of religious social conditioning is that it establishes in the minds of most religious adherents a "worthiness hierarchy". In other words, the value of a person is measured by how closely their beliefs align with the individual's own beliefs. For... Sign in to see full entry.

Mitochondrial Eve - is a scientific term

The use of the name "Eve" in this case is an analogy, used simply because it is self descriptive in our common language. It does not mean that scientists are now validating the fables from the bible as some chuckleheads have suggested. "The Mitochondrial Eve" is the name given by researchers to the...

Don't buy any bridges

To some degree, the time I've spent here on Blogit "discussing" religion with primarily American Christians, has illustrated a number of widely held perceptions and an almost equal number of widely held misconceptions. Outside of commonly held religious beliefs derived from the same underlying... Sign in to see full entry.

Why do so many people hate Christians so much?

It is important to state from the outset that not all negative reactions to Christianity fall into the narrow definition of "hate". Let us not forget equally important sentiments such as "resentment" and "annoyance" which seem scattered throughout the anti-Christian camp in equal portions. I can... Sign in to see full entry.

All aboard - the crazy bus is leaving

This place just isn't as crazy as it used to be. There was a time when on any given day there were at least a handful of loonies offering us their convoluted world views and telling us all that was wrong with us. Now I want you to promise not to laugh, we are speaking of people that need... Sign in to see full entry.

There are simply too many holes in your story

Since I was a little whelping brat there has been someone nearby, be it my mother, family members, friends or community members, that were intent on selling me on the idea of Jesus. Jesus is the only son of God, sacrificed for our sins, he loves us all and only through him can we find eternal... Sign in to see full entry.

I remember the days of that "good ol religion"

That would be not so long ago when protestant landlords would not rent to catholics and just about everyone kept their mouths shut if they harbored any doubts about the existence of the big guy. To say something could mean job loss, social ostracism or worse. Things have improved over the last few... Sign in to see full entry.

The inevitable and unavoidable religious offences

If you choose to discuss religion, matters associated with religious beliefs and the effect that these things have on the society that we live in, there are a number of realities that are both inevitable and for the most part unavoidable. Inadvertently offending others is probably the most likely of... Sign in to see full entry.

June is over and the USA isn't a communist country?

Awhile back one of the fervent fundies, (I forget which one simply because they are like a flock of indistinguishable mindless sheep), bellowed for all to hear that the USA under the leadership of Barrack Obama would be a communist country by June. That would be the June that just passed. Somehow... Sign in to see full entry.

What is it about feeble minded fundies and healthcare?

Periodically over the years on this site we have been treated to posts decrying all that is wrong with the idea of universal healthcare being instituted within the USA. Utilizing everything from bogus articles to laughable videos, invariably an alarming picture is painted of what takes place within... Sign in to see full entry.
