I don’t know if Helen of Troy launched a thousand ships, but a tweet can definitely launch a thousand words. Conversations on twitter more frequently than not, however, never come at the right time for long discourse. This morning, for instance, 6am and I am merely sneaking a peak at my iPad to see a dozen or so notifications flashing up. Continue reading
As ‘Ham n Eggs’ theme park opens to the public, complete with dry dock and stuffed animals ( he obviously cant be trusted with real animals), it takes me back to a piece I wrote a while back for Andy..

I have always had a fascination for ancient mythology and how through the ages it is altered to suit the peoples of that area. One such famous myth is The Great Flood. To the western religious majority, this of course means the Biblical flood with the lead role being played by Russell Crowe, erm , sorry I mean Noah!

I always find it fascinating yet humbling when a dear friend decides to share his story with me. Although I was aware of his previous theist belief, I admit it was a surprise to discover how deeply he was immersed in the daily rituals of that belief system. And so, without further ado, please enjoy his journey .This is a guest post by @GrahamJayGee. Continue reading
“If you step outside on a warm clear night and look up, what do you see? Imagine answering that question 400 years ago. What did people see then, gazing at the stars? It is remarkable that in seeing the same thing we see today, they nevertheless saw a different universe with a completely different set of meanings both in itself and for their own personal lives. This marks a highly significant fact: that at the beginning of the seventeenth century the mind – the mentality, the world-view – of our best-educated and most thoughtful forbears was still fundamentally continuous with that of their own antique and medieval predecessors; but by the end of that century it had become modern. This striking fact means that the seventeenth century is a very special period in human history”

It gives me great pleasure to welcome back guest blogger @lordcropes. We share a fascination with the the lack of lucidity theists seem to value. Literalists are an unbelievable part of life on twitter, be it discussing the ‘evolution theory’ the age of the earth or in fact its shape.
Please enjoy and read on…
A couple of years ago, I read a comment on an online book review. It was from a Bible literalist called Roger. As a pleasant change from the norm, he seemed well read, polite and actually, quite a nice guy.
The comment was as follows…
“Evolution is NOT a fact… The theory of evolution denies God, and denies the Bible, since the Bible explicitly states that the world and the fulness of it are God’s property and creation.” Continue reading
Why, oh why, oh why, do theists persist in relating atheism to evolution and/or The Big Bang Theory? To build their point? If they have a point! How many times do we have to tell them they are separate subjects. Atheism is simply a non-belief in any of the bloody deities! Continue reading
As is commonly the case with me, I don’t search out subjects to write about they find me. I had noticed this week a few new followers with the words ‘The Clergy Project’ in the bio’s.
I will acknowledge this is a new one on me as I had never heard of this before, now I was curious and decided to do a little digging. What I found both surprised and fascinated me and at the same time I found it a touch unsavoury. Continue reading
