Jesus as reincarnated Alexander the Great (no more wacky than mainstream ideas)

This is just a quick idea out of left field. The root of this idea is in part based on a prior blog post I wrote about how there's no resurrection in the Biblical resurrection story. Briefly, Jesus dies and goes to the afterlife, then goes to a different part of the afterlife, then appears occasionally as a ghost. It's a missing body story, but at no point is it a resurrection story.

What I'd like to do is throw out one more conspiratorial influence behind some of this story. In the…

Russell's Lighthouse

I think both theists and atheists don't realize the full ramifications of Russell's Teapot. I would expect everyone here already knows what Russell's Teapot is. If not, check out a youtube video about it or the wikipedia page on it. The thing is, Russell's Teapot doesn't work as an analogy for the kind of god religious people imagine. Russell's Teapot is an analogy for philosophical god, a theoretical god that is completely uninvolved and leaves no evidence of itself. Theists claim that…

Why don't we tax food?

     This blog post isn't about atheism. Once again I'm using this as the closest thing I have to a place where I can post things of a philosophical, social, or political nature. This is quite an off the cuff idea and there could be plenty of mistakes in it (in rationale and in history, in this case).

     So why don't we tax food? Is taxing food likely to break you? Probably not, but if you're limited to affording the bare necessities that can make a difference. Along those lines aid…

A hypothesis: tougher prison drives crime

It seems like unless I pay for my own website that I don't have any good place to blog all the ideas I wish to blog. Like now, I have a thought that's not about atheism that I'd like to remember and maybe even share and neither does it fit any other site I visit. It seems like this is best place to express ideas, especially if they might be controversial, compared to any other site I can post at. Am I going to post a political thought to a video game forum? No that just doesn't make sense.…

I won't defend evolution to creationists

     The simple reason is because it's not my fight. Acceptance of evolution is the mainstream Christian view. At least for Christianity, a literal view of Genesis is only held by some weird cults, mainly just in the USA. If a Christian wants to debate evolution they can discuss it among themselves. There are more Christians who accept evolution than there are atheists.

     But more than that, the creationists have an ulterior motive trying to bait atheists into debating evolution.…

The Bible never actually claims Jesus was resurrected

I don't know why this point isn't raised more. So Christianity presents the resurrection of Jesus as a key detail. However, that never actually happens in the Bible. Reread those gospels if you want, but the only one who gets a resurrection in the Bible is Lazarus (unless there are a few more I'm not aware of).

TLDR before I get into it, but we can agree resurrection means coming back to life after dying, and by life we mean this life not the afterlife. Jesus dies, then goes to hell…
