One of the tactics used by Muhammad to cover up his contradictions is called "Naskh",which is also known as replacing one verse with another. The conceptual application of this is that Islam is a gradual revelation as the Quran was revealed over 20 years. The "replacing one verse with another" is mentioned in the Quran in these ayats
And when We exchange a verse in…
Muslims scholars keep telling us that the Quran is word by word from God, and the proof is the so-called scientific miracles in the Quran, but a simple analysis of many verses prove the opposite. it is a product of its time from people living in the seventh century who knew little to nothing about science.
Quran (12, 4): When Joseph said to his father, "O my father, I saw eleven planets, and the sun, and the moon; I saw them bowing down to me."
Math is hard and many struggle with it especially those who never had a proper education. Math is considered a universal language because it is the same regardless if you speak Chinese or Arabic. Scientists are planning to use math to communicate with other alien life forms in out space if they ever existed because math is the only true universal language.
Therefore, you would expect the Quran to be free from mathematical errors if a divine God wrote it.
Sadly, that is not the…Continue
In 1945, 52 texts that came to be known as the Gnostic Gospels were discovered at Nag Hammali in Upper Egypt. These cryptic ancient papyrus manuscripts were hidden to avoid destruction by the Orthodox Christians. Gnostic Christian monks hid them sometime between 120 and 400 A.D. These heretical texts criticize key Orthodox Christian beliefs ----> eg. the virgin birth, divinity of Christ, and the resurrection of Christ. These views were profoundly dangerous challenges to the very survival…Continue

Clement of Alexandria was a 2nd-3rd Century theologian who spoke of the ease of converting the many uneducated “simple believers”of his day to Christianity. I do understand and sympathize with these early believers who needed something to believe in. These early believers who feared death and the forces of Nature. However, I have scant patience with those present day supernatural believers who live in an age of having knowledge the Big Bang. In the Twenty-First Century, and the profound…Continue
I have come to realize that if religious indoctrination takes place at a young enough age, it is astonishing what humans will believe. And, religious indoctrinated people will reject any future contrary information and/or opposition to the supernatural beliefs they have been taught. Early religious instruction leads to a mind-boggling number of unnatural beliefs and values such as: an immaculate conception (virgin births), original infant sin, limbo, purgatory, hell, sacred crosses, simony,…Continue
In the Theory of Balanceology, sex is viewed as an inherent need that humans at some level must satisfy. I am going to get myself into trouble here from some of the readers, but being an ex-Catholic I need to say what I need to say. What I am about to say I should have said a long time ago. I start by asking the question, “What does it take to live a truly celibate lifestyle?” According to Bishop Spong, "those who know anything about celibacy know that true celibacy is a rare and unique…Continue

If Jesus Christ is not in the Old Testament,then why do many People assert that he was predicted by the prophets of Judaism. In fact, if you open up the New Testament,you smacked in th face with one "Jesus prophecy" one after another. The Truth is that the so-called "Jesus prophecies" that are mentioned in the New Testament are a manner of deception because they are verses from the Old Testament taken out of context and "applied" to Jesus; Let's get…Continue
Stockholm Syndrome - I have difficulty understanding how any reasonably thinking person can have the faith of Islamic Jihadist extremists who have a goal to maim and kill "unbelievers." I agree with Francis Bacon that the deeper and more absurd the faith, the deeper it appears to be engrained. Once a faith is embedded in one's solipsistic reality it is extremely difficult to change. No wonder so many horrific things are done as an auto-da-fe (act of faith). Harris stated that, “central to…Continue
This happens every time. The new year comes on. The last one vanishes. So, where did it go? It was here a moment ago. I can’t be that pissed surely to loose a year. And yet his happens everywhere. But time is strange. As someone remarked it stops everything happening at once. So to stop this confusion time dilates what would otherwise be chaos. Thus Auckland New Zealand starts off the new year, loosing the old first. Followed by Sydney blasting eight tons of fireworks into the summer night.…Continue
My God - The majority of religions talk in terms of My God. My God is ownership of God. My God invariably becomes a collective Our God, truth, and dogma. Our God dogma makes us right and you wrong. Or, us being saved and you being damned. Harris proposed, "the central tenant of every religious tradition is that all others are mere repositories of error or, at least, dangerously incomplete. Intolerance is thus intrinsic to every creed." (2004) Dogma makes our religion having an exclusive…Continue
'Holy smoke! Carols by renewable candlelight.' So went the headline of The Australian newspaper on the 15th of December. The Australian Religious Response to Climate Change is all into 'We wish you a Steady Climate' and 'Silent Night, Smoky Night' according to Emily Ritchie reporting. This arriviste group through Tejopala Rawls announced that: 'We want them to step down off the fence and gain the moral courage to do something about climate change.'
So there! Decades after this had…Continue
Winter Solstice: the Festival the Church the People

'...tis the season to be jolly...' goes the tune.
The lead up to the festive season really does generate a palpable sense of well being. In part because we all know what is coming: the greatest feast of the year. For which we simply cannot wait. Which is not of recent vintage either.
In Europa children get an Advent Kalender. Stuck onto the window. With its…

What do you think of the Doctrine of Infallibility? For me, this doctrine correlates with inerrancy. For religions, infallibility includes saying my/our religion can't err because I/we have the Truth. Infallibility is about being right absolutely and without exception. Infallibility proclaims the inerrancy of the Bible. In 1870, the Roman Catholic Church formally announced the doctrine of papal infallibility on matters of faith and doctrine. However, all religions have some doctrinal forms…Continue
From his Tusculan disputations, it appears Cicero was way ahead of the the creationists. in that work, the teleological arguments are made and dispensed with including the argument from complexity, Behe's favourite.
In this post, I dwell on the response by Cotta, a priest, to the arguments advanced by Vellieus, an Epicurean,
What do you think of the concept of Fideism? For me, fideists are those religious addicts who have beliefs not based on reason or logic. For me, fideism puts reasoning to sleep. It really amounts to an abdication of the working brain’s critical thinking skills of analysis and synthesis. Fideism is concrete reactive thinking and a mechanical interaction with life. Schopenhauer said, “faith and knowledge are related as the scales of a balance; when one goes up, the other goes down.” (19th…Continue
