Introduction to my Blog

Are you interested in expressing your views on news-related events? Are you interested in controversial topics such as religion, science vs religion, the progressive movement, identity politics, nationalism, the dangers of fanaticism, etc.? If you’re interested in any of these subjects, then this site may be of interest to you. 

I started this Blog just a few years back to discuss the items expressed above as well as sports, philosophy and other topics of interest to me. I also began to post photos of sexy, provocative women for two reasons:

  1. I like attractive women.
  2. Being that most of the topics that interest me also interest other men, I realized that adding photos of attractive women increased my “audience” and provided an opportunity for greater interaction regarding the various topics showcased in this Blog.

Now, for some of my views:

I’m interested in both science and religion; in favor of one, opposed to the other. And no, I personally don’t believe that science and religion can co-exist. I am specifically interested in the subject of religion, not because I’m a religious person; quite the contrary. My interest in religion has to do with a sense of curiosity as to why such large numbers of people still believe in gods and the supernatural. I can understand religious doctrines prevailing in the more conventional societies throughout the world, but quite frankly I am amazed by the number of Americans who still believe in a personal God; the stories in the Bible; the resurrection of Jesus; heaven and hell, etc. After all, we are living in the 21st century as well as in the most materialistic and advanced country on the planet.

I for one have strong convictions regarding these issues and would like to hear from those of you who are equally opinionated. What is important (to me) is not whether your beliefs concur with mine, but rather that they can be discussed intelligibly.

The purpose of this Blog is to create a forum where people can openly express their beliefs and personal convictions on a myriad of topics, such as: how much of religion is demographic; how did the universe come into being; why are we here; did we evolve or were we created; are we alone in the universe; does God exist; if God does exist is there a Divine Plan; if God doesn’t exist is there a purpose for life or are we merely a cosmological (evolutionary) coincidence; etc.? As one can clearly see these are just some of the endless questions contemplated by inquisitive thinkers. An open discussion on current world affairs and more specifically, politics in the U.S. is also an important component, if not the most important component, of this Blog.

Now I’d like to share a little bit about myself so that you can get a sense of my general view on religious and political matters:

As you have probably figured out by now I am an atheist; not an agnostic, an atheist. I do not believe that God exists. Not only do I not believe in a personal God such as the God of Christianity – one who supposedly created us, looks out for us and intervenes in our affairs upon request – I also do not believe in a higher intelligence, power, spirit or anything else resembling a cosmic administrator. Naturally, I also do not believe in the concept of heaven and hell, or that such places exist. Furthermore, I do not believe in an afterlife of any kind. In my opinion, upon our death we just cease to exist, period; just as all other living things cease to exist. Other creatures do not have souls that ascend to heaven or descend to hell, and neither do we.

Instead I believe in science. I believe that the conditions were “right” for life here on earth (and more than likely other worlds) and that we simply evolved over time, by pure chance, just as all other life forms on earth have evolved throughout the 4-billion-plus years of our planet’s existence.

Well, there you have it. As is obvious my view on matters such as the existence of God and the futility of organized religions is quite unpopular. Nevertheless, they are the result of honest inquiry and much deliberation. I encourage you to check this Blog in the future for quotes and articles written by prominent individuals who offer their thoughts on many aspects of the supernatural realm. You will also find links to interesting websites as well as entertaining and informative videos.

Changing topics, I never cared much for politics. One reason is that I painted politicians with a broad brush – all corrupt. As such, I never voted. I was however encouraged to vote in 2008 by colleagues at work. In contrast to friends and family, I voted for Barack Obama and his message of “change”. Except that “change” never happened, and what change there was, was for the worse. I was going to vote republican in 2012, but when McCain selected Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate I quickly changed my mind and decided not to vote, not because she’s a woman, but because she’s a ding-bat, and Obama wasn’t about to get my vote during his second term.

Fast-forward to 2016… I didn’t vote for Donald Trump but believed he would win. I also (definitely) didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton. Come 2020, I will absolutely vote for Trump. Seeing the immorality of liberal politicians such as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff and the entire litany of Leftist presidential candidates is quite revolting. The Brett Kavanaugh witch hunt, the open border/illegal immigration fiasco and the Robert Mueller/Russian conspiracy hoax are examples of just how immoral democrat party members are. Add to this people such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Presley and the liberal media mob including CNN and MSNBC (to name a couple) and voting republican in the next election is a no-brainer.

Politics and other more relevant issues aside, I enjoy sports, especially cycling and tennis, although football is my favorite spectator sport. I typically play in three or four fantasy football leagues each year. Additionally, my hobbies include playing chess and collecting fountain pens and folding knives.

Feel free to post comments on any of the topics mentioned herein, and don’t forget to check out the hotties…

Thanks!

The Great One (TGO) – adopted from the name of one of my fantasy football teams.

    What is interesting about Einstein from what I have read in the past is that E=MC2 sorry my keyboard lacks the square. That he was looking for God instead we get atomic energy.

    Let me explain, my beliefs are if you speed up matter to twice the speed of light it will disappear, become Nothingness or in crude way God as an action. If you can adjust the speed or slow it down you can form different dimensions and parallel universes.

    In a sense there is no God, and no Soul only Energy that can think.

  2. I want to know all Gods thoughts; all the rest are just details.

    Albert Einstein

    ….. and so do I. The fool has said in his heart: There is no God.

  3. smith chris says:

    What do you say to situations that defy science. Publicly displayed uncorrupted bodies, carefully recorded accounts by many people who all saw a vision at the same time. To prove that the supernatural does not exist, you would have to logically address all the phenomenon that have accrued, the facts that science cant or hasn’t explained. I personally wish God didn’t exist, but I cant believe what I want to if there is blatant evidence proving things which to the best of my knowledge haven’t been addressed by the scientific community.

    And on Einstein (not an atheist a deist) :
    “I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.” (Albert Einstein)

    • TGO says:

      First on Einstein. What is written below is from his autobiographical notes. People will forever debate whether Einstein was a deist or an atheist. My belief is that he was the latter:

      “When I was a fairly precocious young man I became thoroughly impressed with the futility of the hopes and strivings that chase most men restlessly through life. Moreover, I soon discovered the cruelty of that chase, which in those years was much more carefully covered up by hypocrisy and glittering words than is the case today. By the mere existence of his stomach everyone was condemned to participate in that chase. The stomach might well be satisfied by such participation, but not man insofar as he is a thinking and feeling being.

      As the first way out there was religion, which is implanted into every child by way of the traditional education-machine. Thus I came – though the child of entirely irreligious (Jewish) parents – to a deep religiousness, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of twelve.

      Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression.

      Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment — an attitude that has never again left me, even though, later on, it has been tempered by a better insight into the causal connections.

      It is quite clear to me that the religious paradise of youth, which was thus lost, was a first attempt to free myself from the chains of the “merely personal,” from an existence dominated by wishes, hopes, and primitive feelings. Out yonder there was this huge world, which exists independently of us human beings and which stands before us like a great, eternal riddle, at least partially accessible to our inspection and thinking.

      The contemplation of this world beckoned as a liberation, and I soon noticed that many a man whom I had learned to esteem and to admire had found inner freedom and security in its pursuit. The mental grasp of this extra-personal world within the frame of our capabilities presented itself to my mind, half consciously, half unconsciously, as a supreme goal. Similarly motivated men of the present and of the past, as well as the insights they had achieved, were the friends who could not be lost.

      The road to this paradise was not as comfortable and alluring as the road to the religious paradise; but it has shown itself reliable, and I have never regretted having chosen it.”

      As far as how do I explain things that defy science, my answer would be – give it time. There was a time when much of what a 10 year-old child knows today was a mystery to mankind. The sun, the moon, the stars, the clouds, rain, thunder, etc.; all of it was attributed to the gods. Yet science has answered all of these questions and countless more, and will continue to do so in the coming years. I do not believe in the supernatural and so I believe there are logical explanations for every occurrence. We may not know them yet, but given enough time, we will.

  4. In your “little bit about myself” paragraph you shared your Belifes, which was cool, but no life history. I’d like to know if you grew up a “church goer”.

    • I guess when I see a Blog like this I feel two thing. 

      The first thing is I love it because people have to question things to really understand why we do the things we do, and to not question those things, in a way, keeps a deeper understanding of that thing left unopened. Like for example some people might try and stay away from the question “does God really exist” because of fear of hell or whatever. The problem is then they never get to understand that thing in a deeper way, whatever that might mean, their motivation stays at fear. Or if something makes someone angry, or bothered they should ask “why?” instead of blowing it off, or keeping it in a box, which is what you are doing, and it’s awesome. 

      The second thing it makes me feel is, just sad. Because even though it’s logical to think “Christians should represent God and if I want to understand God better I should just learn from Christians” the problem is a lot of times Christians suck at communicating God. I don’t mean, I see Jesus as sweet and loving and other Christians see Jesus as angry and just, I mean we just do a terrible job at being honest and real about why we believe because, frankly we have big egos! We want to make ourself feel good by convincing others, we say we are different than before but we are still playing the game of trying to prove we are better than others for some reason. Perfect example is someone will use Romans ch1. To say “see there Homosexuality is a sin!” but all of chapter two Paul is saying ” You Christians wast so much time judging and pointing at other peoples sins, you don’t see that you are in sin of judging! Your pushing away God’s kind reminder that your judging. (because P.S. everyone knows since Jesus God brings people to repentance with kindness and love)”. Some how we miss all that and just plow through whatever because honestly we are no different from anyone else, (Romans ch3.) we are all broken people in the same boat.

      So honestly why do I still believe after iv questioned my up bringing, and everything else, and still happy to do the work of really doubting a core believe in my life? Well, I guess because this pattern of walking through death and new life that Jesus demonstrates for every Christian to follow has been what gives my life, new life. (when i say death, i mean letting go of things like the want to be right or the belief in God, even though it can feel like your dying at times) I see this cycle reflected back at me in nature, other beliefs, and astrology, and I’ve decided to use my life as a test subject to see if this thing really works and for me so far it has. It’s the same as when you let go of religion, you probably experienced less guilt, less worry about what’s considered “right” and “wrong” and you just were. That was probably healing in a way, it was for me when I went through that process. I just got married and I’m realizing the only way to make it work where we aren’t always angry at each other is to go through this process of letting go of wants, for her and for myself, because on the other side is us just being us, which is what we really want in the first place.
      Going through this process gives me the feeling of being close to God and fully tuned into life.

      So is this hard proof? No.
      Could I scrounge up some convincing stuff, maybe.
      But why? To “Convince You”, I’d rather just share why I believe, and let that be it.

  5. So I stumbled across this blog while perusing pictures of lovely ladies with ample breasts. As I sometimes do I glanced up and around the page for posterity and noticed the categories listed; religious dogma, the real bible, mankind and the like which peaked my curiosity so I read the Introduction. Well done sir, well done. I like you have a pressing curiosity about religion not because I myself am religious but on how it has such a disturbing and lasting effect on the human experience. In a world before reason and the light of science the mind scrambles to make sense of things but what excuse do we really have in the 21st century? I will enjoy exploring your blog and I wish you all the success in the world. Also kudos on the pretty girls…….I love pretty girls.

  6. Really enjoyed this. It’s as though we’re stunting our evolution, maturity, and development by clinging to religion the way a child clings to a teddy bear. Why are we so afraid to believe in ourselves instead of a deity?

  7. leberinc says:

    The bottom line to me on why intelligent people still pray to God or Gods is this, it is called brain washing children. Imagine for a minute that no child is taught about god until they reach the age of 18. How many at that age would then believe these stories?
    The ultra religious start brain washing their kids at 2 years of age, these kids don’t stand a chance.

  8. GhostRider says:

    Blankuser from madison, the only thing you do, IS, “provide useless commentary”. The bottom line is that whether a person is, ‘passive aggressive”, or, “lashes out for no reason”, or, that a person “simply denounces the post without justification”, or, “claims to be a blog for debates but cant provide justification”, whateva, doesn’t make a difference – who cares! I could say that you are an asshole, and, mind you, be right, but so what. Who really cares that you are an asshole. The fact that you are one, doesn’t make a difference.

    You’ve be doing this awhile, isn’t it time that you write something that makes a difference – like I just did.

  9. blankuser101 says:

    haha agreed, maybe I need to also. but for now I merely wish to point out that the problem with religion isnt religion itself but the people who take it too far and cause problems for the rest of the world. and on top of that is most nations not wanting to actually do anything about such radicals. but even if religion was eliminated other radicals would still be around to fly planes into buildings cause they’re mad at someone else. most organizations are not bad overall but there will always be a few “bad eggs” to ruin it for everyone else. extremist groups, whether religious or secular, environmental or racial, or whatever reasons, will always give a bad name to those groups and organizations. goups such as the taliban who believe in a war for the greater good are skewing the views of their own people to support their own desire to destroy those they dislike. Even in christian faith people like Westboro babtist church that spout nonsense and protest funerals of soldiers. even the extreme environmental groups who would much rather burn down homes, which releases more gasses into the atmosphere, than actually try to find a solution are the problem for the green movement. in the end it is not the whole that is the problem but a smaller part that we should be concerned with.

    • blankuser101 says:

      and once again, back to my point of passive aggressive. there is nothing pertinent to your last comment than to lash out for no reason. i came on here with no intent to “provide useless commentary”. in saying that you merely prove your own ignorance.

  10. blankuser101 says:

    I stumbled upon your blog and after reading a bit of it thought I might for once be able to have a truly intellectual debate with someone on such topics. Unfortunately I read through your comments on other peoples posts and was disappointed in my findings. All I’ve seen is that you tend to be passive aggressive towards anyone who doesn’t share your views, or you simply denounce them without any actual reason. all i found here is a sad sap with too much time on his hands. maybe if you changed your approach to how you respond more people who want an actual intellectual debate on the topic would actually comment. Change your approach, and maybe I’ll come back and we can have a real debate

    • blankuser101 says:

      admittedly there haven’t been very many great posts here that actually provide good debate material but at least put more supporting material instead of simply denouncing the post without justification. don’t claim to be a blog for such debates if you cant provide justification for all arguments or admitting ground on ones you don’t have a good answer too

      • TGO says:

        I checked your WordPress.com blog and for someone who is so critical of my posts your blog certainly leaves a lot to be desired. This is, of course, unless you have several sites and just spend your days infiltrating other people’s blogs with useless commentary; which I believe is what you do.

    • TGO says:

      Thanks for your input. It is always interesting to read other people’s perspectives. Unfortunately, I’m afraid that each individual has his or her own “style” and formulates opinions based on (to a great extent) their genetic make-up and personal experiences. The likelihood that either you, I or anyone else for that matter will “change” as you suggest I do is unlikely.

      If you notice, you believe it is I who needs to change. At no point did you indicate that you might need to as well.

  11. Eva Lynn says:

    I would have contacted you privately but there is no information on how to. I was forced to comment publicly. Frankly, you state that my material isn’t worth stealing yet you have it posted in full, along with every article that’s on your blog. They are all posted in full. I’ve contacted WordPress with their own Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice.

    Check their TOS here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/content-theft-what-to-do/

    Per WordPress’s post: “Every day, bloggers are victimized (whether they are aware of it or not) by having their content stolen, scraped, and unlawfully copied. This is unfortunate, as we understand how much you value your personal content and hard work. When this happens, and the culprit is a member of WordPress.com, we take immediate action, ensuring that your content is rightfully protected…”

    “1) Determine which content has been stolen.
    Is it an excerpt from one of your posts? Is it an entire post? Is there a link pointing to your original content? Make note of the specific URLs involved…”

    I did not intend to come off as threatening to you as I figured you were blissfully unaware of what you were doing but that does not make it right. It is a copyright violation. Feel free to post anything from any of my articles up to 200 characters as long as there is a link back to the original post and an acknowledgement of me as the writer.

    I find your blog interesting and thank you for the links back.

    ~EJS

    • TGO says:

      Thanks for the information. I will delete your post along with two others that I obtained from Gathers; all three of which had to do with Casey Anthony. I will also never read (or obviously post) any material from Gathers again, therefore don’t expect any links from this Blog directing traffic your way.

      Just for the record, it was never my intention to steal anyone’s material, and in my opinion (for whatever that’s worth) I have never done so, as I have always identified the author of the story (when the name appears in the article) as well as the source; be it CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, TIME, Reuters, The Associated Press; etc. Again, I have NEVER posted an article from any news organization or individual without identifying where the material came from. I have almost 3300 posts on this Blog, mostly from the news sources identified above and have never been informed by any of them that I am stealing their material.

      Based on what you’re suggesting, your intent is that I post a basic introduction to your article and insert a link to your publication, thereby providing free advertising for you by way of my Blog, and of course you would like other bloggers who may stumble upon your material to do the same. This is all well and good, for you, as it puts money in your pocket, albeit by way of the efforts of others. If this is the way the industry works then it is what it is… But either way, with the social media being what it is these days and the tens if not hundreds of millions of news articles, photographs, videos, etc. flying through cyberspace by way of blogs, Facebook and Twitter, personal websites, etc., there is absolutely no way of preventing the so-called “stealing” that you refer to; much less enforcing it.

      Anyway, once again, thanks for the information. By the time you finish reading this (assuming you do) the three articles I posted from Gathers will be removed from this Blog.

    • GhostRider says:

      To: Eva Lynn,

      I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS BLOG SITE SINCE IT’S INCEPTION AND YOUR COMMENT IS THE FIRST OF IT’S KIND, MEANING….. YOU RECEIVE THE GR CONEHEAD AWARD, CONGRATS BUT LIGHTEN UP ON THE SOUR GRAPES

  12. Eva Lynn says:

    You are in violation of copyright laws. You have several of my articles in FULL on your blog. I realize you want to bring awareness to the Casey Anthony trial but posting articles in full without a writer’s consent is not the way to do it. Please remove my articles and the others you’ve taken and only put in a paragraph w/ a link back to the original article on the original site.

    I’ve notified my editors and they will follow up with you on this if the changes are not made soon. They will be force to send an official cease and desist letter via their lawyers. BTW, i am author Evalynn Saeyang from Gather.com. I’ve notified the other writers you’ve taken their work too.

    • TGO says:

      Do whatever you need to do. I’m just a regular guy commenting on special interest topics. I was never informed by WordPress that I was violating any copyright laws. I’ve been doing this for over two and half years and not until recently have people crawled up from under rocks to accuse me of stealing their material, which quite frankly isn’t worth stealing. This is why I always recognize the author and news source of the story being posted.

      If your editors are force (sic) to send an official cease and desist letter via their lawyers then let them do so. You can notify whoever you like; I have taken nobody’s work. Again, I have always acknowledged the author and news source of all materials posted on this Blog.

      By the way, your threatening tone isn’t necessary. If you were truly a professional, maybe you should have simply let me know what (if anything) I was doing wrong and I would have corrected it. Threatening me with lawyers is nothing short of classless. Govern yourself accordingly…

  13. I agree, religion is crap. But erase them from the earth, there still will be groups that vehemently oppose each other. For example, communists or tea partiers. But, maybe you’re right. I was raised catholic and I dealt with a large amount of guilt issues over my life. Also, certain issues, such as abortion and stem cell research, won’t be using religious tomes as “evidence”. Freedom of choice and the use of stem cells in research are such no brainers to me, my blood boils when someone argues in the negative quoting the bible. But religion also served its purpose (and maybe still does) when it comes to a basic system of laws. I believe this is why religion was created. Probably around 6000 years ago (for Judao-Christians), a group of guys borrowed from other mythologies and created the ten commandments. They had to keep people in line somehow. Another interesting question, how did they get the people to believe their brand of religion? …and how has Hinduism stayed around for so long?

  14. Cognative dissonance and coping with death. Two reasons I think people still believe… But, the thing is why try to answer the unanswerable. The concept of an infinite universe is far too difficult for the human brain to comprehend, much less, how it was created. Stick to putting pictures of hotties with huge juggs on your blog. Debating the existence of God is as fruitful a conversation as an argument over which is the best color.

    • TGO says:

      Excellent commentary! I agree with you that debating the existence of God is basically a no-win proposition, but there’s more to it than that. Forgetting the existence or lack thereof of God for the moment, organized religions play quite a significant role in societies across the globe; in my opinion much more so than deserved.

      Anyway, I’m glad you enjoy the pictures, I’m sure they’re quite popular.

  15. George Reed says:

    Your tone and comments about Christian Science aren’t very nice TGO. Have you ever read the highly respected newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor? Did you know that Alpert Einstein had a deep respect for Christian Science? He visited our Church and Reading Rooms and commented to the effect, “Do you know what you people have in your book [Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures]? To think that a woman [Mary Baker Eddy] wrote it 80 years ago. It’s pure science that’s way beyond physical science, and if people knew what it contains, they would be clamoring for it.” More information here: http://www.csinsocal.com/2011/06/13/albert-einstein/

    • TGO says:

      I have read several articles from the Christian Science Monitor and in fact have posted a handful of them on this Blog, but I have not read the newspaper as such. With regard to Albert Einstein, I don’t know for a fact that he visited your Church and Reading Rooms as you claim, but I do know for a fact that he did not believe in the supernatural. As a physicist, he dealt with the material world; not with the non-material, metaphysical world, which is what Christian Science as well as all other religions delve in. There is no such thing as “pure science that’s way beyond physical science,” as you stated. If there is, it certainly hasn’t been discovered as of yet, and certainly it wasn’t discovered by the founder of the Christian Science faith over a century ago. Again, science deals with the physical, not the spiritual.

      Mary Baker Eddy is credited with inventing the Christian Science religion, which is far from being a science. She was not educated nor trained as a physician, yet claimed to have “healing powers;” but without the use of medicinal drugs, which tells me that she was somewhat of a quack. You can give her and her Church all of the credit in the world if you wish, but a scientist she was not.

  16. Your blog and the posts are just awesome. I love reading this blog and don’t realize that I have been looking the blog for hours and hours.Since i found this blog, i have been a daily reader and viewer of it. Once again GREAT WORK 😉 and keep on making flow of wonderful posts.

  17. zaresh kan says:

    interesting blog but i failed to understand that y did u limit urself to the stories from associated press? y not use other media sources as well?

    Knowledge is vast and so should the sources be….

  18. What science, religion, philosophy, theology, psychology, Hawkins or Dawkins thought impossible has happened. History now has it’s first fully demonstrable, Christian proof for faith. And it’s called The Resurrection. And coming from outside all existing theologies, clearly has ‘tradition’ in the cross hairs. Quoting from an online review:

    “The first ever viable religious conception capable of leading reason, by faith, to observable consequences which can be tested and judged is now a reality. A teaching that delivers the first ever religious claim of insight into the human condition that meets the Enlightenment criteria of verifiable, direct cause and effect, evidence based truth embodied in experience. For the first time in history, however unexpected or unwelcome, the world must contend with a claim to new revealed truth, a moral wisdom not of human intellectual origin, offering access by faith, to absolute proof, an objective basis for moral principle and a fully rational and justifiable belief! ” And it’s called The Resurrection!

    If confirmed and there appears a growing concerted effort to test and authenticate this material, of which I am taking part, this will represent a paradigm change in the nature of faith and in the moral and intellectual potential of human nature itself;  untangling the greatest  questions of human existence: sustainability, consciousness, meaning, suffering, free will and evil. And at the same time addressing the most profound problems of our age.

    While the religious will find this news most difficult, those who have claimed to be of an Enlightenment mind should find it of particular interest, for it represents the means to finally reconcile science and religion. But if they are unable to appreciate this change in the historical faith paradigm, to one that conforms precisely to a criteria subject to test and confirmation, then their own ‘claim’ to rationality is no more than pretension nor better then those theological illusions they find so abhorrent.

    A unexpected revolution appears to be under way. More info at http://www.energon.org.uk

      Rarely, if ever, have I read so many words that say absolutely nothing. More than just garbage; meaningless garbage.

    • qritiqal says:

      How do you fool an atheist into reading a big load of scriptural hooey? Mention that there is “proof” of something in your first paragraph.

      I went ahead and followed the link to the pdf file you can download at the end. His “evidence” of the Resurrection? I pdf document that is basically just ALL biblical references!!!

      I thought for a moment that perhaps this was some scientist with a crazy theory about how to prove that the “resurrection” (I’m assuming he meant Jesus’ alleged resurrection”) actually happened. Oh, was I wrong!!!

  19. hoboduke says:

    Like your pinup pictures! I am praying for a National Atheist Day to honor atheists in the USA. Then I can file a lawsuit every year complaining that honoring atheists ruins my Christmas. Most athesits in the USA are whining miserable people that file lawsuits against celebrating Christams. The irony is that they demand a Christmas party at work, want presents, and take the holiday time off. Howver, they violently lobby to kill Christmas?

    • TGO says:

      I just saw your comment; must have missed it before. Thanks for the comment on the pin-up pictures. Yes, they are pleasant to look at.

      I don’t know what ‘most’ atheists you are referring to as whining miserable people. Most atheists I know are intelligent, well-read individuals who simply don’t believe in all the superstitious nonsense that religious people believe in. People who never even stop to think that “their” religion is nothing more than the rhetoric they were taught to believe in during their upbringing – in other words, religion is demographic. And by the way, the whining you refer to is actually done by the brainless, religious zealots who continue to push to teach Creationism and Intelligent Design in schools, so that American children can be indoctrinated with falsehoods and grow up to be dumb and ignorant; just like their parents.

      As far as Christmas goes, you’re addressing the wrong guy. I for one am not a militant atheist who has a problem with Christmas; one way or the other. I’m not a hypocrite, like most religious people, who pick and choose the parts of their “holy books” that are convenient to believe and follow. If my office closes for Christmas, what am I supposed to do go in to work? Work with who?

      Yes, where are you getting the idea that atheists hate Christmas? I like getting presents as much as everyone else. I just don’t like having other people’s religious beliefs forced on me.

      Christmas is celebrating the birth of a baby born in the plush accomodations of a barn with no medical care. The concept of gifts for Christmas began with the royal gifts from the 3 wise men for the baby Jesus. Now Christmas is a US commercial event with terrible Hallmark cards and worse Hallmark Santa movies. Atheists enjoying Christmas gifts makes me happy. The religious zealout is a mythical creation like a unicorn. Where are the throngs of zealouts with burning torches and intimidating the peace of the community? Let me know what neighbor or person you have seen intimidating children that they must join some religious cult? Christmas gifts can continue without Jesus or even Christmas I am sure. The history of Christianity up to current times has the blood and lives of Christians being sacrificed around the world.

    Hello TGO, I guess you have yourself a new reader. Although I’m not an athiest, I certainly am a man of science. As to some of the topics you have mentioned in your introduction, I believe in the big bang theory. I believe god is the multiverse. The multiverse theory is the theory that one ultimate universe has the particles such as antimatter and high densities ( which are what creates black holes and hence the new universe ). According to Stephen Hawking, time seems to slow down or stop completely in a black hole. Meaning in parallel universes do other beings live for ever? In that case I would oppose what you mentioned on the cosmic administrator. I believe if people or aliens if you will have lived for longer amounts of time ( time only being a costant to us of course ), “they” would be advanced not only in technology but in knowledge we could not imagine. It appears we can only use 10 percent of our brain; If we could use let’s say 20 through 50 percent we’d be doing things like flying or telekinesis. Of course you’d have to put in mind the ionizing energy we’d be giving off which would include damaging others’s skin tissue and in consequence giving off certain diseases like cancer and many more anatomical problems. I look forward to your response.

    My kindest reguards,
    Rexis

      You mention that you “believe” in big bang theory. If evidence were shown that suggested big bang theory were false, would you change your belief about it?

      What if evidence were shown that could prove that god is false?
      Ah, but there can be no evidence that proves god is false, you say!
      Here is where I disagree! Every single new scientific discover we make that increases our understanding of the universe is yet one more nail in the coffin for the superstitious belief in a god.

        You wrote your first comment at 3:42 P.M., and followed it up with another comment at 4:00 P.M. Now I may be a fool, but don’t you have any material to substantiate your allegations? Maybe the comments were made by two different individuals logged in from the same location…

        By the way, while you’re at it, learn to type.

      Isn’t it interesting how religious people will immediately resort to name calling instead of even trying to start a discussion about how atheism could be wrong? Persoanlly, since I know many seemingly intelligent people who choose to believe in one god or another, I think the problem is that they know that there is no rational basis for their belief, thus there is no way that they can argue FOR their belief. In the end, their argument would always come down to the statement: “I choose to believe.”
