How Can This Be?

image18In the 21st Century how can this be?

In Paraguay, Niña El Peligro, a ten year old girl was abused, raped and impregnated by her step father, Gilberto Benitez Zarate.

Bad enough, but then she may have been betrayed by her mother, who allegedly assisted her husband escape the authorities.

Unbelievably, it gets even worse!

Watchers Of The Sky

imgres5I was introduced to a documentary by my friend, Secular Scarlet (@naradee12) and it makes for compelling viewing.

It is called Watchers Of The Sky, and is dark, chilling, scary and I urge you all to watch it.

If I’m honest, I think it should be compulsory viewing in every school everywhere in the world.

But before you do, I would like to ask you a question, and that is, which is the odd one out from the following list?

Faith And Trust

imgres3Faith and trust are a couple of words that theists like to throw around with wild abandon.

They even like to tell us godless types that we require more religious  faith to cling to our belief in the non-existence of God.

Let’s have a little look at that, shall we?

Respect My Views, God Damn It!

images1Respect.

A fascinating concept.  Everybody  wants it, but fewer are willing to offer it to others.

Also, it is something that can be earned through one’s valiant efforts or hard work and diligence.

urlReligion has produced some beautiful things it must be said.  Grandiose architecture, fascinating and gorgeous imagery and as Godless Mom once said, the Islamic Call to Prayer is a beautiful thing.

I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but having seen for myself some of the buildings and creations inspired by religion, I’m forced to agree.

Religion has produced some truly beautiful things.

Five Signs Proving The Bible To Be True… Really?

imgresI found this website proclaiming five signs that the Bible is true.

It sounded intriguing so I thought I’d give it a look.

iheu-1So… The International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) published their Freedom of Thought Report (A Global Report on the Rights, Legal Status and Discrimination Against Humanists, Atheists and the Non-religious) a couple of days ago.

The Flood Myth…. I told ya it was raining!

IMG_6731This is a guest post by Secular Scarlet, whose fantastic blog can be found here.

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.

Are Your Children Saturated In Truth?

searchWell, it looks like Eric Hovind and his chums are up to their old tricks again.

Mistaking (or deliberately misrepresenting) what the word ‘truth’ means.
