    On Childbirth

    Rcently I have had reason to be confronted with a few cases of childbirth which say significant things to me about its origins, and the implications of that for faith and belief in an ethereal creation. The cases involve young women, one the ex-wife of a friend, one the wife of...

    Out Of "business" Churches

    It always brings a smile to my face when I see a church with a "for sale" sign in front. Last week I found out that the bar where I eat lunch a few times a week was once a church. I think a bar is an excelent use for a church. A building which used to be a drain is now taxable...

    The Things We Swallow #2

    Basil knew for sure our origins were mysterious. But he couldn’t swallow the children’s stories peddled by grandpa Ralph and others. It was preposterous. That the world was created by some Ethereal creature who fancied us as a people during the past two thousand years only...

    Why Religion Must Be Eradicated From Society

    The topic discussed in this essay is religion and why it should be erradicated from society. Religion is bad and it has done little good for society. It has killed more people than any nuclear missile has before. Believers use the argument that science has produced weapons to...

    The Mind Of God

    Towards the end of my novel MS The Theory of Relativity, the protagonist Albert A. Stone is asked to write an essay on the The Mind of God. Here is what he said: Thus far we have found it nigh on impossible to understand the mind of man – or woman. How much more difficult...

    One thing that really irks me

    whenever I get to my work. It has a proud sign saying "14 religions, one college". How about the non-religious? And why do they imply everyone is of a faith? Not just this, but simply saying '14 religions' is highlighting the emperor's new clothes, or lack of clothing to...

    Heirs Of The Ages

    The Bridegroom And The Chicken Wings

    An old bachelor eschewed the customary party before wedding, and over the objections of his groomsmen, went to Hooters instead. The servers were lovely, and he was pleased; but the chicken was tough and flavorless. "I've had better wings," noticed the best man. "We should have...

    Why End Religion?

    There are so many arguments by religious individuals and groups as to why we must believe. But really why? God this and god that, but the reality is I see no place for deities of any sort in the universe. As for god the character, I believe it was Richard Dawkins that said...
