Probably

There Probably Is No God Presenting bad evidence hurts your case more than presenting none. One marble to represent all gods. But which one is it! Between the Torah, Bible, Quran, Tripitaka and Bhagatvad Gita we have plenty of examples of direct communications from God himself. Direct, allegedly unquestionable, proof…

Nothing Else Matters II

A Disturbance In The Force Most religious beliefs are build around things and entities which can arbitrarily disconnect from the laws of Physics. This implies they are not build from the same law-abiding stuff everything else is made from, but suggest the existence of 'matter-that-isn't-matter'. This view is not controversial…

Nothing Else Matters I

Looking for a fight Forgetting for a moment that no evidence has been presented to support any notion of God, most of the claims regarding the divine literally rely on supernatural infractions upon the laws of physics. Without it no prayer could be answered, no universe willed into being and…

The Rime of The Ancient Historian

Why History? An old ragged man, with a scruffy beard, grabs the arm of a student standing on the steps of his Alma Mater... It is an ancient Historian, And he stoppeth one of three.'By thy long grey beard and glittering eye, Now wherefore stopp'st thou me? The university's doors…

The Fermi Paradox

Where is everybody? In their essence there is one element that binds many or even most theologies together: the notion that mankind is somehow special and part of a divine plan. In that sense none of these theologies predict the existence of (or even allow the possibility for) non-human intelligence.…

Christian Archeology

For Whom The Bell Tolls

"Give us, us free" When Islamist terrorists strike a city we are all too prepared to declare ourselves 'citizens' of Paris or Berlin or even Brussels. This is easy. It is a lot harder to stand against the terror that is committed by an allied government. Rare are the facebook-declarations…

Pyrrhic Victory

Torpedoes in the water When I accused them of having offices adjacent the European Union in Brussels, solely for facilitating covert recruitment of politicians in high offices, I assumed they would not hear me. It would seem I was mistaken! Screenshot from Cold-Waters, a well-known submarine-game. Pyrrhus was the leader…

Roe V Wade

In defence of Human Life on planet Earth I have defended the pro-choice side before. This time I hope I avoided 'drowning the fish' as one professor of mine use to call it. In any case the matter is so important and so acute and relevant that I felt a…

How Dilbert Died

  Spider Without a Web In the end it was not so much the extreme-right and misogynistic stance you took that made me quit my allegiance to you, as much as the cavalier hypocrisy with which you circled back to it. When underdog cartoon people align themselves with the anti-social,…

A Silent Atheist Inside Scientology III

Ron Hubbard [caption id="attachment_566" align="aligncenter" width="620"] L.Ron Hubbard's book describing his anti-scientific pseudo-psychotherapy.[/caption] Dianetics LRH wasn't…

Identity

Identity ..They called me Mr Glass.. Can our identities be broken like glass? In this post I look at how our identity, the things we feel define us, can make us do anything and how Religion is a very big part of that. The children now love luxury; they have…

That Magic Feeling

That Magic Feeling Because perception is reality The setting: a summer barbeque. Equal parts friends, family, alcohol and meat. In Belgium the only place where you can discuss your religious convictions is either on television, where everyone can see/hear it, or in your backyard where no-one can. Every other place…

Modern Times

Modern Times Welcome to the new normal [caption id="attachment_470" align="aligncenter" width="240"] Muhammad Ali in 1967.
