    The Things We Swallow #1

    What follows is a series of extracts from my as yet unpublished novel MS "The Theory of Relativity." By the way, my earlier story in this Experience, Heirs of the Ages, is also an extract from that same MS. The things we swallow. The kind of rubbish teachers and parents and...

    The Things We Swallow #5

    How, wondered Basil, could otherwise intelligent people like Ned Blackham, who Basil had talked with at length about these issues, subscribe to such rubbish? Ned said it was faith. Faith? If you have faith, that faith must tell you that the Ethereal would hardly just create one...

    Abusive Beliefs

    Since I relinquished my faith and discarded the absurd beliefs that have been forced on me since infancy I have felt liberated.The catalyst was Sam Harris' "The End Of Faith". I really wish everybody would do the same then we might have some chance of surviving the...

    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...

    Common Sense And The Senseless Common

    Religion Being One Of Primitive Man's Mistakes

    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...

    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...
