How Much Religion Can We Tolerate In our State?

The separation of church and state is vital for both sides. It keeps the government from hording in on people's personal faiths, while at the same time, keeping religious extremist from using the government to push their faith (or lack of faith) on everyone. Its a win-win.

But where do we draw the line?

Their are clear violations of church and state and then there are smaller less…

State Laws Regarding Marriages Between First Cousins

Twenty-five states prohibit marriages between first cousins. Six states allow first cousin marriage under certain circumstances, and North Carolina allows first cousin marriage but prohibits double-cousin marriage. States generally recognize marriages of first cousins married in a state where such marriages are legal.…

Historical Jesus: Unscientific

I’ve been researching the “Historical Jesus“. His existence really doesn’t motivate me one way or the other, its not like finding out there was a man named Jesus is going to convince me he was God, but it’s a story that is culturally relevant to our story. I personally believe Jesus was a Myth, it just makes since to me, the theory that he was a composite of some kind, really adds up.



But I wanted to know exactly how the professional historians come up with the “Historical…

Someday Soon

Someday, Someday Soon,

We’ll all go to the moon.

To the moon.

They said it was crazy

when wingless man looked up at the sky

and said “We can Fly!”

They said, “Your crazy as a Loon!”

But up they went in a balloon.



Someday, Someday Soon,

We’ll all go to the moon.

To the moon.

They tried in vain

To maintain the mundane

And it worked for a while

But the future is here

Resistance is futile. …

The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth

The following are actual commandments of the religion known as "Satanism." Its almost a entirely satire religion for most followers do not believe in an actual "Satan" and most of the rituals are done in mock of Catholicism - but the philosophy behind it is entirely serious.

The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth   

1. Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.

2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure…

Existence: Finite or Infinite?

When a lamp gets old and breaks down and it gets thrown away it has evolved from being a “lamp” to being a “broken lamp” and eventually, given enough time, it won’t be known as any form of “lamp” any more because It will decay and break back down into its elements. As a lamp it no longer exist, its parts are now floating around some place in the cosmos becoming a part of something else and interacting with other things. Its being recycled over and over and over again. This is also true with…

God: Evil or Limited

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? - Epicurus



The only God you can justify morally is a very limited one. Apologist for God like to refer to him as a loving father correcting his children, which is fine if you limit him, but the moment you say he is Omnipotent, Omnipresent,…

My Un-Confession

I can’t remember a eureka moment.  That single point in time when I said: “There isn’t a God,” but I do remember being relived that their isn’t one. For me Its kind of like trying to remember when I got taller. I just remember one day being taller.



I know I use to pray when I was really young because I told I was a sinner and believing is not enough "for even the devil believes." There was a few times when I was directly asked if I was saved and if I was going to confess and be…

A Very Late Introduction

Allow me to introduce the largest character of life, myself. My name is Mark Andrew Strange and I am a person, first and foremost, a being with the ability to think for himself and to contemplate things outside his own existence. I was born in 1987, in a building that no longer exist as it once did, but that's okay, that's how the universe works I suppose, always in perpetual motion, always changing, recycling itself forever. The building of which I speak is Oral Roberts's City of Faith…

Faith Does Not Require Proof

I think its funny that people of religious faith tend to try and prove their position. They get so angry when I show them evidence to the contrary even using their own bible to defeat their arguments - they especially hate it when I do that.

"You don't even believe the bibles the 'word of God' why are you using it to argue against…

Individuals right to Discriminate?

Does an individual have the right to be sexist and racist? Do they have the right to hate homosexuals and preach against them? Do they have the right to call Atheists non-americans and immoral people? Do they have the right to deny any marriage as being valid in the eyes of "god" based on whatever criteria they see fit? And the right to deny homosexuals from being married in their churches? You damn right they…

Logic: Why God Explains Nothing

If the universe is so complicated that it requires a creator, then creator must then be even more complicated then his creation? This begs then the question: What created him?

If God exist he must have been created and his creator must have been created and his also, an endless cycle that goes on forever.…

Holy Bible - Judges 19 (A Retelling)



There once was a god fearing righteous father who sat around a dinner table with his family when a strange came knocking. The stranger was clearly in need of food and drink and the father being a kind man let this stranger in. 

What a kind thing do, clearly the religious are very good descent people.

A group of evil gay men from the city, who saw the stranger enter the religious mans home, walked up beat upon the door, practically knocking it off its henge. The…

They Deserved It

Killing the innocents

Streams fill with their blood,

Crying out from the depth of intolerance

But it's okay because

the enemy was among them,

It’s okay because they’re different

and probably deserved anyway.



She washed up on shore

Her clothing ripped from her

Signs she was raped

Probably provoked it, the filthy slut.

She was a woman of respect

But who cares what she had to say

She was a whore anyway.
