no thinking

Political correctness - a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Christmas Objections

Though I claim no allegiance to any religion or belief system, I have no objections to Christmas as a secular or religious holiday and I begrudge no one their beliefs. Indeed, I am very much in favor of the sentiments and ideals that the holiday represents. Still there aspects of the holiday which I find […]

Faith and belief

Faith and belief are often considered to be one and the same. I have given the concepts and faith and belief considerable thought and contemplation and I have concluded that while they seem to be similar, they are not the same at all. They are two distinct and separate entities. One can have faith without […]

I claim no religion

I claim no religion but I do not identify as an atheist. I might be considered agnostic, meaning that I don’t know. A belief in a supreme deity is uncertain but not likely. However, I am certain that I do not believe in the God of Abraham, a system of beliefs that run contrary to […]

No religion yet on a path

It’s not often that I remember my dreams. Usually, all I have after waking up are disjointed fragments that usually fade within a few moments of opening my eyes.¬† That said, occasionally one of these fragments will stick with me. Such was the case when I woke up yesterday. In this dream I was being […]

Death and Marriage

Death

Why Can’t Americans Choose to Die on Their Own Terms? That’s a question that’s been troubling me for many years. It’s been my experience and my observation that the wishes of the dead and the dying are usually given lip service at best or they are completely ignored. The funeral industry blatantly rips off grieving […]

Lent again?

It occurred to this morning that Ash Wednesday is just a couple of days away. I don’t actually observe Lent but is the one Christian observance that I appreciate and relate to although I find the common observance of Lent to be fraught with undue frivolity, triviality, and hypocrisy. ¬†Still I appreciate the idea behind […]

An Atheist in Denial? Does it really matter?

How I Went from Being a Southern Baptist Preacher’s Daughter to an Open Atheist was interesting to read. Lately, I’ve been reading Facebook posts and watching videos by the Godless Engineer and Timothy Havener. I tend to relate a little better to Havener’s perspective; the Godless Engineer presents good logical arguments but he seems to […]

Did Jesus fake his death and resurrection?

This is an idea, Just one possible scenario, that I’ve toyed with for a number of years. I’m sure that most Christians would find it blasphemous or heretical, if not downright offensive since it goes against one of the most fundamental beliefs of Christianity, his Resurrection and ascent into Heaven.

At an early age (the age […]

Easter Musings

I’ve given up on trying to reconcile the incongruity of eating ham on a day marked for commemorating or celebrating the resurrection of a Jewish man from the dead. Like all other Christian holidays, Easter has assimilated so many ancient observances and rites into its collective and perverted them that it’s nearly impossible to separate […]

Is Religion Inherently Oppressive?

Is religion inherently oppressive, particularly when it comes to women? Since virtually all modern religions are patriarchal and even their deity is portrayed as a male, I’d have to say yes. Empowering women would be a threat to their power and influence over their faithful. History clearly demonstrates the religion has always been much more […]
