Several days after the Rapture didn’t happen….

There are a lot of people congratulating themselves on predicting the predictions of the crazy religious guy were not going to happen. Atheists laugh because it makes them feel, well, more justified in their belief that nothing exists, religious leaders feel better knowing that they still hold all of the cards (people can’t determine religious events without relying a church), … Read More

So What if Tomorrow Ends Up Being the Day of Rapture?

Doomsday predictions predict that tomorrow, Saturday, is supposed to be the day of rapture, when God takes up all of the good people and leaves the rest of us to deal with Satan’s return, Armageddon and all the theatrics that entails. Most people talking about tomorrow completely get it wrong and think tomorrow is Armageddon, but don’t realize that it’s … Read More

Even in America, we have newspapers doctoring the truth

This is a copy of a newspaper that was printed in New York. Here is the same photograph on CNN: Notice a difference? Well, in the first picture, someone went through the work of photoshopping all of the women out of the picture. Turns out an ultra-Orthodox Jewish religious organization doesn’t believe that women in a picture should be included, because it … Read More

When it comes to issues of sex, America does not understand redemption

I’m not one to latch onto another story and then write about it, although I admit there are a lot of bloggers who do that sort of thing. But this was one issue that I found to be so significant that I felt that it needed further attention, and perhaps even more perspective. An article appeared today in Salon.com that … Read More

The Logic of People Escapes Me Sometimes

I just read that in Afghanistan, a bunch of people rioted and attacked the Friday UN because a Florida pastor burned the Koran in a protest last month. Doing so, the rioters killed 12 people. Part of me is left shaking my head in astonished amazement at the outright stupidity of people (both the pastor and the morons who attacked … Read More

The Whackjobs Are Making the Rest of Us Crazy People Look Bad

Most people who know me also know that I am a big fan of Shania Twain and her music. At one point, in my numerous writings and articles, I wrote a joke story about how I created a religion completely around Shania Twain, calling in Shaniaism. Since then, I’ve often joked about how I’m obsessed with Shania Twain and she … Read More

Finally, Pornography Will Have a Presence on the Internet

Yes, after years and years of nothing but clean, wholesome information, pictures and overt religiousness, the Internet is FINALLY going to be able to show pornography. Up until now, as we all know, there’s been a huge dearth of porn-related information on the World Wide Web, but thankfully forward-thinking individuals have figured out how to bring us smut, sex and … Read More

When the Revolution Comes Back Home

  There’s been a lot of talk of revolution lately with the whole Egypt thing. I find it interesting that when we were talking about Yemen, my first thought was that Yemen would probaby be the tipping point for other revolutions because that’s usually what happens, and people didn’t seem to get what I was talking about. My point was … Read More

Watching the Right Television Shows to Come up with the Right Political Answers

The current state of these United States of America shows us not very united in the states of America. It’s pretty sad because for the last two hundred and some years, we’ve weathered some pretty strong storms that should have only made us that much stronger. You know the old line of “whatever doesn’t kill me only makes me stronger” … Read More

‘Tis the Season to be Concerned About Money

One thing I can always count on during this wonderful holiday season is that someone somewhere is going to try to guilt me into spending money. If it’s not on a television commercial that is concerned that my loved ones might be very unhappy with whatever choice of present I decide to give them, it’s the actual show itself where … Read More
