Creationism

“Tell a lie long enough, loud enough, and big enough, people will believe it.” —Kent Hovind on Evolution

I started to work my way through Kent Hovind’s Creationism Seminar. I had heard them all before when I was Christian, and they were very influential in providing me the “evidence” I needed to believe in Creationism. I’m listening to them again with my new perspective, and as I go, I’ll jot down my thoughts right here. Continue reading “Creationism”

The Temple of Consciousness

The temple that you are building is a vessel for your consciousness, tend to this vessel with care, because it is sacred.

I’ve been thinking about temples and churches a lot lately.

There’s a few verses in Paul’s letters that mention the concept of a person or a community of people being a temple or a church. Christ is referred to as “the head” and the church is is “body”. Elsewhere, Paul tells us that our bodies are temples, and that god lives within it.

So, how on earth would this be relevant to an atheist? Continue reading “The Temple of Consciousness”

Paul’s Epic Rant to the Church of Corinth

“Thank God I didn’t baptize any of you motherfuckers.” –Paul

This is a continuing series of my quest to read the entire bible.

I skip around on which books I’m reading based on relevant conversations I’m having with people online and in-person. Today I’m writing about First Corinthians, because an online acquaintance of mine is going through a crisis with his family. He recently came out (or was possibly outed) as atheist.

Cliff Notes on Genesis (From an Atheist)

“Let there be light.”

This is the first post in my attempt to read the entire Bible. It might be my last. I’m not being dramatic, I’m just kind of ADHD when it comes to writing. I’ll probably get bored and do something else for a really long time and then finally do another book. Expectations, people: I’m managing them.

Thoughts on Religion & Atheism

Research ideas, defense of religion, attacks on atheism, creation and evolution etc.

I’m in a number of Facebook groups that discuss atheism and theism. Usually I am a silent observer as I read through the threads. Sometimes I have a few thoughts that I feel like jotting down, which is what this article is; a hodge podge of ideas. I’ll organize as I go, and if a section gets big enough I’ll break it into its own post.

My Voyage to Atheism

A story about family, friends, indoctrination, mentorship, pursuit of truth, humanism & atheism.

I grew up in the Churches of Christ. Here’s the story on how I grew up in Christ and then lost my faith in God. Compelling or not, it is what it is. It’s a long story, as voyages often are.
