Happy Birthday, Ken Ham!

Ken Ham turned 60 today. Or to convert that into Young Earth creationist years – he is just over 25 seconds old.  We all know, of course, that in 2007, Ham opened the Creation Museum in Doucheburg, Kentucky which last year saw its 1 millionth visitor, definitively demonstrating (contrary to previous hypotheses) that it is indeed possible to […]

The important thing is…

Got tired of watching end-of-the-world apocalyptic weather coverage, so I’m watching Bart Ehrman tonight…  jk

Rapture via Back Door

Well, readers, on Rapture’s Eve, you will be glad to hear that I have wonderful news! If you are arbitrarily non-religious or religious in the Pascal’s Wager sense, you may find yourself idly wondering something to the effect of, “What if I called this Rapture thing incorrectly?” Maybe you’re thinking, “What would it hurt to buckle […]

He’s coming…

The Easter Bunny and his Peeps! “He took the marshmallow, broke it and said, “This is my body…” Yeah, I know the Last Supper came before Sabbatum Sanctum, but it doesn’t really matter if you think about it outside of space and time. And to extend our “He’s coming…” theme, today’s Bible verse brings us all the way […]

And that’s why you don’t run with scissors!

Remember back when you were a kid and your over-protective parents provided all sorts of dictates such as “Don’t touch the stove!” or “Don’t stick your finger in that outlet!” or “Don’t drink the Draino!” There would always be the time, though, where you didn’t listen and “Ouch!” a nice burn on your finger. Inevitably, […]

Drunken Noah Redux

We shall now return to the story of drunken Noah as the response to that article received some very unexpected information. But first, let’s recall the moral dilemma posed by Genesis 9:20-29. Here, Noah as one of his first post-flood acts plants a vineyard, which many Biblical readers immediately identify as problematic. Uh-oh…alcohol. But we are […]

Unsolved Mysteries: The Huxley Files

When a reader recently used the following quote (attributed to English evolutionary biologist Sir Julian Huxley) [I suppose the reason] we all jumped at the Origin of Species was because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores. it immediately caught my attention. The answer was supposedly given in response to a question about why […]

Speaking of a screwing…finished my taxes. At least I’m not Canaan.

The process is ridiculously complex; it seems odd we have tolerated it for so long. I feel like I’m getting screwed because I don’t work for the railroad or the fishing industry. And what’s so damn special about Lake County in Indiana?  The twisted part is, I kind of feel good because I’m getting some […]

1 Corinthinans 13

Today’s Lent celebratory Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in […]

Uh…hey, you go ahead and keep that idol.

We revisit Ezekiel for today’s Lent celebration bible verse of the day. Specifically, we will explore Ezekiel 16, in which the multi-chapter extended metaphor of the whore of Jerusalem takes a turn into the realm of auto-eroticism. (Ezekiel 16:8-17) 8 “‘Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were […]
