These are a collection of various
topics that have gotten my attention over the years, and I thought that you may
enjoy my comments.
As a species, we like to be lied to. By nature mankind is
optimistic- and religion plays this for all it's worth.
Ex-Christians Get No Respect
Walk out on the
Pope, walk out on Allah, walk out on Joseph Smith- fine, no problem to the
Fundies. But walk out on their religion of choice, why, you must
We Love Our Lies
The hope of Atheism becoming the dominant philosophy for mankind
is without hope.
James the Brother of Jesus
It turns out that the "proof" dug up in Jerusalem was a fake.
What else is new???
Acts of God
When Biblegod throws a temper-tantrum, even the groveling slaves
who specialize in kissing his ass aren't safe. If this is how
Biblegod treats his friends, we may just as well remain his

It's not always rabid religionists dogging SET FREE. Sometimes
people email SET FREE with nice things to say.
Hypocrisy- Thy Name is Christian
Examples and occasional comments on the abundant examples of
Christian hypocrisy found in the world.
While reading recently about the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping case
(happy ending) they mentioned that she had probably been brainwashed by her
psychotically religious kidnappers. This caught my attention: many of the
techniques involved in brainwashing were the same that I had seen in practice
going to "holy roller" tent revivals as a kid.
Atheists are the last minority in this country that are legally
allowed to be persecuted. If Jews, blacks or Mexicans were to be legally
discriminated against as us Atheists regularly are, the uproar would be
stupendous. But since its just Atheists, who gives a shit???
"Religious-based arguments asserting the immorality of
prostitution should be given no legal credence. In a society that separates
church and state, no person should lose her or his freedom because of someone
else's religious beliefs." --Eddie Tabash, Attorney at Law
History is written by the victors. That being the case, imagine
for a moment if Nazi Germany had been the victors of World War Two, and thus had
written the history books that we in The United States grew up with. Our
perceptions of Adolph Hitler would be vastly different than they are now. Hitler
would come across as a good guy, while Roosevelt would be the villain. A history
of Germany, written by Nazi Germans, would be vastly different than one written
by who really won the war. Christians would admit this, yet then turn around and
claim that their own history, written entirely by the sect that won the early
power struggle, is somehow pristine and pure as the driven snow.
Christians like to brag that they are the originators of, and
the sole source for, morality on this planet. They seem to feel that they have a
monopoly on morality. Once again, Christian claims fall far short of reality.
Thoughts, news articles, and comments about
the de-evolution of
into an impoverished, third-world
nation of flag-waving wage slaves.
Hellfire For Roses With Thorns
Modern science is showing more and more "sins" are biological in
origin, and NOT "moral choices". This presents a quandary for Christians: how
can Biblegod justly roast somebody's ass in hell for all eternity for something
over which they had no control??? "Divine Wrath" for a gay man being gay
makes as much sense as yelling at a rose for having thorns, yet this is the
"justice" system set up by Biblegod.
Sex and related issues.
September 11th Has Been Hijacked by The Christians
In the days following September 11th, Christians were noticeably
absent from the public arena, fearing the obvious question that everyone had on
their minds, "Where the hell was God?"
If fetuses go straight to heaven, why aren't Christians in favor
of abortion, and why aren't they out aborting as many as possible???
Christianity Has Pagan DNA
Christianity did not come down out of heaven fully formed & gift
wrapped for mankind. It evolved, and borrowed alot from the extant religions of
Like a Fundy
When theologians can't dazzle 'em with their brilliance, then
they'll baffle 'em with their bullshit! Learn the in's and out's of how to
confuse the hell out of people to the point where they give up asking questions
and just ASSUME you know it all. Do the opposite of Jesus. Jesus tried to make
the complex simple so all could understand it. Fundy's make the simple complex
so none may understand it.
Jesus Do ?
Have Christians really thought this one thru? Would Jesus pick
his nose? Would Jesus fart in a crowded room? Did Jesus use toilet paper?
Inquiring minds want to know!!!
Schizophrenia and Personal Revelations
Which is more likely when someone claims to hear "the voice of
God": mental illness, or divine revelation? Occum's Razor demands the more
When Christians look at the good things Biblegod has
done, they judge Biblegod to be good, and no one says anything.
However, when Atheists look at the bad things Biblegod
has done, and judge Biblegod to be bad, we are told
we're not allowed to do that: "who are you to pass judgment on God?".
This is hypocritical.
