What is it about conspiracy theories and believers?

It would be an unfair generalization to say that those who believe in God have a penchant to subscribe to conspiracy theories but with a little qualification, the following statement is startlingly true; I have yet to meet a conspiracy theory proponent that does not believe in God. Insert all of the... Sign in to see full entry.

If your name is O'Shea, don't name your kid Rick

You would think that something like that would be obvious but I remember going to school with a kid who's surname was Ball, his parents named him Harold. What were they thinking? Despite his continuous demands not to call him Harry, we of course did,... as often as we could. When I look at the... Sign in to see full entry.

Allowing prejudice to speak first

It is not my intention to slag anyone with this particular post but just recently I witnessed something on this site that I thought was a little unfortunate. A harmless comment, possibly not constructed as well as it could have been (like none of us have ever done that before), caused some... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes the truth hurts

Over the years that I have been on this site there have been a number of identifiable trends in human behavior that re-occur with an almost predictable frequency. Probably the most common is how new arrivals to this site, coming here to spread a message of love for all, almost immediately begin to... Sign in to see full entry.

Spiritual people that operate on a different level

Amongst the things that some people readily accept without question, is the notion that walking amongst us are those who are more perceptive than the rest of us. These unique and gifted individuals are supposedly more attuned to the spiritual realm than everyone else. Their abilities ranging from an... Sign in to see full entry.

Right and wrong in absolute terms

Are you capable of looking past all other influences such as personal bias and determining what is right or wrong in absolute terms? Most people are not capable of this, at least not fully. It is something that comes with maturity, an ongoing diligence must be applied to each and every circumstance.... Sign in to see full entry.

Spending the day with a Jehovah's Witness

I have a good friend and business associate who is a Jehovah Witness. Since I sold my business, I have been using his facility for the few deals I put together from time to time. As with all of my friends who happen to be religious folks, I had to club him over the head with his own religious... Sign in to see full entry.

The anatomy of a blog war

If you can imagine, I've been in a blog war or two (or several dozen). The remarkable thing about each and every one of them is how they all have had identifiable stages and common characteristics. It always begins the same way, someone with a bible lobotomy takes offence at something they have read... Sign in to see full entry.

Things I have learned on Blogit - Part 1

A couple of years ago now, we had a raging debate going on about health care. Specifically universal health care or "socialized medicine" as our American friends are fond of calling it. When you spend some time on this site, you become aware of the BTLs (bible thumping loonies), or those with a... Sign in to see full entry.

Winning the favored by God lottery

It seems that God is very secretive about what he wants from us. Instead of coming right out and saying this is how it must be, we are instead entered into a lottery of sorts, where only those born in the right country at the right time ever get a chance to win. That is if one subscribes to the... Sign in to see full entry.
