Apple’s Coke M.U.L.E.

With apologies to Danielle Bunten Berry. To address these points in reverse order for no particular reason: “Just out of curiosity.” Bullshit. Feel free to prove me wrong, though.  “If the Bible never existed, would you be more likely to believe in a creator?” You mean like all the other religions, including the ones that… Continue reading Apple’s Coke M.U.L.E.

Dear Religious People Illustrated

Yesterday, the first day of 2021, I was out with my roommate running errands following a wonderful breakfast at one of our favorite places. I had toast and coffee. I bring this up because as we drove over to the grocery store, I began experiencing some severe abdominal pain. Given I had two cups of… Continue reading Dear Religious People Illustrated

A Trinity?

Previously, I outlined my rules for engaging with theists or apologists or whatever term they may or may not want to be identified by. To bring you up to speed, if I can boil the position or argument down to one of two generalizations, I don't owe that person any more of my time, the… Continue reading A Trinity?

Dear Kevin Sorbo: A Very Special “Dear Religious People”

“I know these guys must believe in something, otherwise, they wouldn't get so angry about it,“ Oh, Kevin, sweetie, I believe in plenty of things. God simply isn’t one of them.

You’ve Got This That I Gave You

Let me start by offering two different perspectives on theodicy, two sides of the same coin, if you will. The first is from a Mormon missionary I met some time ago talking about all the things that people go through that would seem to indicate God doesn't care about you. The short summation of it… Continue reading You’ve Got This That I Gave You

No True Argument From Ignorance, Part II

I’m writing this as a new reply since you’ve edited your reply to actually address what I’ve been trying to get you to discuss more directly. I do appreciate the effort, but please try to think through what you’re saying before committing it to the forum.  “Ok, do to me, there is nothing for an… Continue reading No True Argument From Ignorance, Part II

Kindred Spirits: Return of the Shroud

Continuing on from earlier. "This is not a painting" Well, it's certainly not a burial shroud as you insist. This is for a host of reasons, but let's start with the most obvious one. Take an orange if you have one. Draw a face on it, being sure to put the ears on the sides… Continue reading Kindred Spirits: Return of the Shroud
