    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 Facts Of Life

    You don't have to read The Origin of Species to resist fundamentalist dogma. Participating in EP's Q&A, I was reminded that my skepticism about religion originated in the kiddie monograph, "How Babies Are Made." I studied this in preparation for a birth in the family when I was...

    The Things We Swallow #4

    What else does it say about Big E’s sex life? Well, as above Big E has to be labelled as a liker of forbidden fruit, exactly like our Bert. Big E is a philanderer. Does it with other men’s wives. Secondly: perhaps he didn’t like that one time with Mary. Perhaps Big E...

    Heirs Of The Ages

    When you choose your gods choose strong ones. When you fashion them in your own image, imagine stoutly and boldly. Attribute to them gentle and considerate words such as compassion, understanding, love and turning the other cheek. But beneath that veneer render them physical...

    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...

    Religion Being One Of Primitive Man's Mistakes

    Why End Religion?
