Proverbs 3:5 – A Horrible Bible Verse

As a young Christian, I remember hearing Proverbs 3:5-6 a lot in church. It’s a popular “life verse” for many. If you’re not familiar with the term ‘life verse’, it’s a Bible verse or passage that a Christian chooses to base their life around. It’s a verse that they feel is one of the most profound in…

God's Greatest Hits

With thanks to friends on reddit (with a few of my own additions), here’s a satirical list of some of God’s Greatest Hits. Or put another way, welcome to the craziness of Christian fundamentalism. Warning: NSFW language follows. Yahweh is omnipotent. But rests on the 7th day of creating stuff. He demands Adam and Eve follow a rule…

Why I Can't Believe Anymore — A Summary

It’s been more than two years since I came out as an atheist. In that time, my lost Christian faith has come up often with family and friends. It’s difficult to distill a decade-long journey into a 5 minute elevator speech. When believers ask, that’s typically all they want. They don’t want to hear a…

Articulate but Simple Response

Have you ever had one of those moments when you’re asked a question and your response is clear, articulate and thoughtful? I enjoy those rare moments. Damn, I wish they weren’t so rare though. I enjoyed reading this response from one friend to another on why a former devoted believer became an atheist: (Source) “I…

That's a Good Question!

There’s a recent article on ExChristian.net by Astreja entitled “So What?“. The post regards common remarks by believers toward atheists such as: “You just want to sin!“, or “You wouldn’t believe even if God suddenly appeared!“. The referenced post is fairly short and definitely worth the read, but there was a comment made by XPDan that I…

Vox amPlug for Electric Guitar – Very Cool

Last month I bought one of these little Vox amPlug devices for my electric guitar. It’s powered by a pair of AAA batteries, and it’s meant to be a perfect travel companion and/or a great way to practice without disturbing others. You simply plug a pair of headphones into the device and then plug the…

My Customer Game Review: Christianity Ver 3.0

[Inspired by a very humorous Amazon review for the Book of Mormon, I decided to post my “game” review for the current version of Christianity] The game of Christianity is quite old but it has some really compelling hooks to lure you in. It can become quite addictive, especially if you are exposed at a very young…

Website called Truth-Saves.com

I stumbled onto a website recently that impressed me. Some might find it a little too busy but on a laptop/desktop computer, it has a nice layout, flow, and visual design, but most importantly, the message is good. It’s quite different from our usual blogs. I like the way the information was laid out. The…
