Why not Islam?
Scrolling through my Facebook feed I came across an argument that at its heart, was about the burden of proof. A Christian argued that the Bible was the proof for his beliefs, which is nothing new obviously. It occurred to me though, in that moment, that if the revealed Word of God as contained in […]
The Chicken or The Egg
I was recently posed this question, but it was posed rhetorically. It was used to set up an argument for the existence of a creator deity. We’ll tackle the question itself in a moment, but more importantly, I want to address why a question like this would even be used to start an argument for […]
Politicians pander to their audience. This isn’t a revelation of any great discovery, and the devout make up a large voting block, so trying to out-Christian each other is a common practice among politicians, especially of the Republican persuasion.

Looting and pillaging is job #1 in these United States, as our crumbling schools produce illiterate drones who stumble out into the impoverished wasteland to die in gun battles […]
The Inauguration of Indecency
Today marks a significant event in the history of the United States, as Donald J. Trump, an admitted sexual predator, will swear on a stack of Bibles to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. This oath will be immediately violated as the man is himself a […]
I don’t know why it’s so difficult for people to shake the concept of belief out of their skulls, but the dangers implicit in this mentality are currently on display in truly frightening ways. US Intelligence Agencies have concluded that Russian Intelligence Services penetrated the US Government’s IT resources. Link to the Report The stolen […]
