So, Where is Jesus Buried?

By Carl S ~

Lucky you to see what humans have never seen in the entire history of humanity! The James Webb Space Telescope is gushing out a constant stream of pictures from the farthest reaches of Space-Time. Some day, it might find the beginning of this Universe as a "Go boom!" followed by multiple orgasms ever since. No good or evil relativity involved. Absurd? So what's the point of it all? I don't see the "point" of any or all of it, just like my life or that of any other organism.

While the Webb and Hubble are scanning, analyzing, and photographing, are they looking for signs of "Heaven?" "Since "Heaven" is by tradition, a physical place, with "many mansions," where the hell is it? Billions of people have been told "Heaven is for real," so why can't it be found?

Millions of people still believe Jesus and others floated up from Earth, unaided by balloons, rockets, etc., through the clouds, to this physical paradise. These happened thousands of years ago! Up to where "God" dwells. Has anyone seen Jesus, Mary, or Elias, anywhere "up," which really is, "out," there? Faith believers may wait for the "God experts" to "explain" where "Heaven" is. But - duh....

Billions of people have been told when this Earth is ending, their Jesus will return (it’s always in the near future), and then he'll take his thousands of floating chosen followers up to this "Heaven;" so it can't be far away, right? That'll be the "Rapture" they anxiously await; the "We're getting ours, and the rest of you can go to Hell." Can you think of anything more selfish, and more bloated with depraved indifference ever devised? Then, it is written, "the stars will fall from the sky." B.S.

Satellites are constantly scanning earth. So, where is the "Garden of Eden," large enough to contain all the life forms ever to have lived on Earth, including dinosaurs? You know, the one with a fiery exit and a ten thousand year old angel out front guarding it? The "Garden" should have been immediately spotted when the first rocket filmed this planet! Nope.

No human can survive in Space without protection from Space [...] They wouldn't survive even if they were filled with hot air, or the hot gas of verbal masturbation called "apologetics," of clerics. So, let's enjoy ourselves and laugh about all the fairy tales told about gods, the meaning of life, the reasons why a "God" created these billions of constellations made up of billions of stars, all those exploding stars, and evolved life forms that never existed when Earth began. Billions of gullible humans still believe an alleged god made this Universe for earthlings alone, and came to Earth to be tortured to death! They don't bother to ask why "he" created psychopaths and Hell. Nor ask why this same deity is so concerned about our sex lives and the sexual choices for our bodies! Why do they say you should worship their scriptural "God:" nasty, petty and depravely indifferent about us? Unworthy of a second of thought, when we see the reality of our situation in the Universe?

No human can survive in Space without protection from Space. No Heaven, Jesus, Mary, Elias or Mohammed can be found there; they wouldn't survive even if they were filled with hot air, or the hot gas of verbal masturbation called "apologetics," of clerics. If a Jesus existed, then where's his body buried? Instead of the search for Noah's ark, why not the search for his body?! A never-ending series on Discovery Channel? (I never wait for answers.)

I'm reading about the goddess ISIS. What a wonderful deity. Imagine all the houses of worship built for her. (It is claimed, from Afghanistan to England.) Picture the prayers of supplication she answered, miracles done in her name, and praise for centuries! Now imagine a planet where she is worshiped, and how she would influence the policies upon that planet: respect for women and one's finite life alone, for a start. An advanced world, one not dominated by belief in a male god of a week long span of creation, but a goddess representing continual creativity. She is perfectly compatible with the realities of space-time and evolution. A lot of NASA's missions are named after pagan gods and goddesses. What if we change the name of the International Space Station, ISS, to ISIS, to make people wonder, "Who's this Isis?" When you know her name, look up her number, so to speak.

Billions of humans seriously believe "explanations," a.k.a., "crap." If billions of people believe a foolish thing, it's still a foolish thing. Billions of people accept living on a religiously-shrunken world: believe many, many, foolish things. And because they do, "living by faith" is a spurious and unstable argument for how to live our lives. The data continually pours in. We'd better get real and prioritize care of each other, refuse to listen to those who urge otherwise, since we're alone on Spaceship Earth.

By David Andrew Dugle ~ O ctober. Halloween. It's time to visit the haunted house I used to live in. When I was five my dad was able to build a big modern house. Moving in before it was complete, my younger brother and I were sleeping in a large unfinished area directly under the living room. It should have been too new to be a haunted house, but now and then I would wake up in the tiny, dark hours and see the blurry image of a face, or at least what I took to be a face, glowing, faintly yellow, high up on the wall near the ceiling. I'm not kidding! Most nights it didn’t appear at all. But when it did show itself, at first I thought it was a ghost and it scared me like nothing else I’d ever seen. But the face never did anything; unmoving, it just stayed in that one spot. Turning on the lights would make it disappear, making my fears difficult to explain, so I never told anyone. My Sunday School teachers had always told me to be good because God was just behind m

The Blame Game or Shit Happens

By Webmdave ~ A relative suffering from Type 1 diabetes was recently hospitalized for an emergency amputation. The physicians hoped to halt the spread of septic gangrene seeping from an incurable foot wound. Naturally, family and friends were very concerned. His wife was especially concerned. She bemoaned, “I just don’t want this (the advanced sepsis and the resultant amputation) to be my fault.” It may be that this couple didn’t fully comprehend the seriousness of the situation. It may be that their choice of treatment was less than ideal. Perhaps their home diabetes maintenance was inconsistent. Some Christians I know might say the culprit was a lack of spiritual faith. Others would credit it all to God’s mysterious will. Surely there is someone or something to blame. Someone to whom to ascribe credit. Isn’t there? A few days after the operation, I was talking to a man who had family members who had suffered similar diabetic experiences. Some of those also suffered ea

Christian TV presenter reads out Star Wars plot as story of salvation

An email prankster tricked the host of a Christian TV show into reading out the plots of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Star Wars in the belief they were stories of personal salvation. The unsuspecting host read out most of the opening rap to The Fresh Prince, a 1990s US sitcom starring Will Smith , apparently unaware that it was not a genuine testimony of faith. The prankster had slightly adapted the lyrics but the references to a misspent youth playing basketball in West Philadelphia would have been instantly familiar to most viewers. The lines read out by the DJ included: "One day a couple of guys who were up to no good starting making trouble in my living area. I ended up getting into a fight, which terrified my mother." The presenter on Genesis TV , a British Christian channel, eventually realised that he was being pranked and cut the story short – only to move on to another spoof email based on the plot of the Star Wars films. It began: &quo

Why I left the Canadian Reformed Church

By Chuck Eelhart ~ I was born into a believing family. The denomination is called Canadian Reformed Church . It is a Dutch Calvinistic Christian Church. My parents were Dutch immigrants to Canada in 1951. They had come from two slightly differing factions of the same Reformed faith in the Netherlands . Arriving unmarried in Canada they joined the slightly more conservative of the factions. It was a small group at first. Being far from Holland and strangers in a new country these young families found a strong bonding point in their church. Deutsch: Heidelberger Katechismus, Druck 1563 (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) I was born in 1955 the third of eventually 9 children. We lived in a small southern Ontario farming community of Fergus. Being young conservative and industrious the community of immigrants prospered. While they did mix and work in the community almost all of the social bonding was within the church group. Being of the first generation born here we had a foot in two

Are You an Atheist Success Story?

By Avangelism Project ~ F acts don’t spread. Stories do. It’s how (good) marketing works, it’s how elections (unfortunately) are won and lost, and it’s how (all) religion spreads. Proselytization isn’t accomplished with better arguments. It’s accomplished with better stories and it’s time we atheists catch up. It’s not like atheists don’t love a good story. Head over to the atheist reddit and take a look if you don’t believe me. We’re all over stories painting religion in a bad light. Nothing wrong with that, but we ignore the value of a story or a testimonial when we’re dealing with Christians. We can’t be so proud to argue the semantics of whether atheism is a belief or deconversion is actually proselytization. When we become more interested in defining our terms than in affecting people, we’ve relegated ourselves to irrelevance preferring to be smug in our minority, but semantically correct, nonbelief. Results Determine Reality The thing is when we opt to bury our

Reasons for my disbelief

By Rebekah ~ T here are many layers to the reasons for my disbelief, most of which I haven't even touched on here... When I think of Evangelical Christianity, two concepts come to mind: intense psychological traps, and the danger of glossing over and missing a true appreciation for the one life we know that we have. I am actually agnostic when it comes to a being who set creation in motion and remains separated from us in a different realm. If there is a deistic God, then he/she doesn't particularly care if I believe in them, so I won't force belief and instead I will focus on this one life that I know I have, with the people I can see and feel. But I do have a lot of experience with the ideas of God put forth by Evangelical Christianity, and am confident it isn't true. If it's the case god has indeed created both a physical and a heavenly spiritual realm, then why did God even need to create a physical realm? If the point of its existence is to evolve to pas
