    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    What follows is a series of extracts from my as yet unpublished novel MS "The Theory of Relativity."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...

    Give Away False Gods

    Anthropology and archaeology take us back beyond history, providing strong evidence that no human societies have existed lacking the company of some belief system we may call religion. For 6 million years our hominid ancestors have populated the planet. Using a principle of...

    Religion Being One Of Primitive Man's Mistakes

    I do want to end religion. All sorts of horrific things have been done in the name of religion-but I also believe that people NEED religion. Well, some people. My father was an atheist (which is where I get my doubting attitude from I suspect), but my mother was (what she...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
