No thumbs allowed

A number of years ago, I took a driving tour across the USA. Along the side of a number of the major highways I kept seeing the following sign: I remember asking myself "what do these people have against hands with thumbs?" It wasn't until I arrived on Blogit and read post after post decrying the... Sign in to see full entry.

How many angels were kicked out of heaven?

Part of Christian mythology has a great battle taking place in heaven just before creation. An insurrection led by the king of the bad guys Satan and his army of hapless bad angels. I think it is fair to refer to this war in heaven as "mythology" as it is certain that there were no witnesses. We... Sign in to see full entry.

I defy anyone to produce credible evidence of any kind

pertaining to the existence of magic. A number of times in the past someone has posted about some experience they claim to have had involving magic. The type of magic where someone has supposedly wilfully manipulated either matter, time and space or produced a desired outcome by utilizing control of... Sign in to see full entry.

The issues of creationism versus evolution

In the recent run up to the US presidential election, then presidential candidate Obama gave a speech that included a statement (paraph.) "more than 50% of US citizens believe in creationism". Where there is no doubt that he was saying this matter of factly without any form of applause or criticism,... Sign in to see full entry.

The long line of Blogit "truth" seekers

"Truth" is a funny word. Where it is by definition an absolute, in that there should only be one truth, in reality, like beauty, it is in the eyes of the beholder. Over my time on Blogit, which is now going on 6 years, I have met many a person that has claimed that they were looking for "truth"....

As if evolution versus creation is still an issue?

Discussions with creationists about their opinions on evolution, has been quite an experience over the years. Sometimes wildly entertaining, most times dripping with a caustic hostility and almost always a full blown demonstration of their appalling ignorance on the subject. Ignorance is hardly an...

Have you checked your references lately?

One of the things that a post secondary education will drum into the brains of all that have ever walked the hallowed halls of higher learning, is the importance of credible references. It might be too much a generalization to say that those amongst us who are insistent on quoting less than credible... Sign in to see full entry.

A shame that is a part of Christianity's legacy

A popular catch phrase amongst those who cannot think of a better reason upon which to premise their objections to gay marriage rights is: "I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman" I say to anyone who uses this catch phrase "Good for you, your beliefs, despite your inability to...

A blogging site run by fundies

Could you imagine what our world would look like if the throngs of festering fundies actually ended up imposing their will by having us all live by their rules? Where many a festering fundie dreams of the complete integration of church and state, without a doubt, they have no idea just what it is...

Who gets to play in this sandbox?

For those who have commented on the previous post, I thank you for reminding me what the old days were like on this site. In my reflection upon not so long ago, when it was commonplace to receive 40, 50, 60 or more comments, I also could not help but remember an ugly incident from back then. An...
