    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...

    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...

    Reflections On The Mind Of God

    Now for something completely different: a little light relief. Bert informs readers what his best friends thought of his newly published essay; he tells us about comments made by his army superiors, his twin brother, and their other friends. What did Warrant Officer II Hendrik...

    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...

    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 #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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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

    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...

    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...
