Why is Jesus the “Lamb of God?”

Why Is Jesus Called the “Lamb” of God? What’s so special about a lamb? Why not the “otter” of God?  Otters are cute.  There are plenty of cute animals that Almighty God could have chosen instead of a lamb. Panda’s are cute. So are arctic seals and koalas. But God had no shortage of other choices […]

Does God Ever Change His Mind?

Can there be any better way to start the day than with a good, old-fashioned child sacrifice? You would have to assume that, unlike mere mortals with their limited knowledge and wisdom, God NEVER changes His mind. Why would He? If you have infinite wisdom and limitless information, you would always be right the first […]

Our Tribal Hearts and the Pernicious Herd Mentality

Evolution provided us with a lot more than a bipedal gait, opposable thumbs and dentition appropriate for an omnivorous diet. It also provided us with a behavioral repertoire that aided our survival during the arduous, lean years that span most of human history. But some of those behaviors are now counterproductive and could easily lead […]

The Futility of Faith

‘Nuff said! It boggles my mind that anyone above the age of 5 would cling to religious faith. It should be abundantly clear to anyone upon the briefest reflection that faith is utterly worthless as an intellectual compass. After all, faith has led billions of people around the world to a welter of wild and […]

Did Jesus Die for E.T.’s Sins?

Exoplanets are being discovered with increasing frequency. To date, roughly 4,000 exoplanets have been discovered and are considered “confirmed.” Approximately another 3,000 exoplanets are still considered “possible detections” awaiting further data for confirmation.  Complex, chiral organic molecules (such as, my favorite, propylene oxide) have been detected in deep interstellar space.  Sooner or later, there will […]

Why I Stopped Praying

A Texas drought taught me that praying was a colossal waste of time. I stopped praying when I was in elementary school. I was still at a tender age when it became clear to me that praying was, at best, a colossal waste of time and, possibly, a clumsy insult to any god that might […]

Litmus Tests for Faith

Reason is the enemy of faith! Every religion is essentially a kind of “club.”  Like a lot of clubs, religions require evidence of your fealty to the club. They want you to pay your dues (they call it tithing”). Religions all have litmus tests which they use to evaluate how well “you are drinking the Kool […]

The Hidden Message of The Wizard of Oz

Inspiration comes at odd times and often from unexpected sources. Insights come at odd times and from unexpected sources. My religious belief began to erode early. The classic children’s film, “The Wizard of Oz,” was an early contributor to then erosion of my religious faith. There is a scene when Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly […]

A Mere Slug Among Butterflies

The enormous building was not in a city. It was the city! I had a very odd dream.  I was standing at a large window high in a  an enormous building. I was uncertain what floor I was on but it was extremely high – maybe 150 or more floors up … and I was nowhere near the […]

Monotheistic My Ass!

Just another god? We are taught to believe that most of the great modern religions are monotheistic.  For those of you who voted for Trump and/or are allergic to polysyllabic words, allow me to help you process this. (mo • no • the • is • tic) adjective; pertaining to the belief in only one god; […]
