Self Deprecation In Christianity: A Facetiously Emotional Sales Ploy

Posted by zomberina , 30 October 2014 - - - - - - · 43 views

Self Deprecation In Christianity: A Facetiously Emotional Sales Ploy We have all been there and done it. Sitting on a couch, consoling a friend over a terrible mistake that has been made, and used our own personal flaws as a buffer before giving advice on what to do about the mess at hand. This is self deprecation, and while a very useful tool while navigating social situations, there is a fine line between using it as a t...

Preaching On Social Media

Posted by zomberina , 16 October 2014 - - - - - - · 134 views

Preaching On Social Media We've all been there at some point. You log onto your favorite social media website like Facebook, and as you scroll through the many status updates in your news feed with highlights about your Aunt Martha's cat, or your friend's son that lost a tooth, you see this:







If you are irreligious like myself, all you see is this:





Why do people d...

When Secular Children Fly Solo At Church

Posted by zomberina , 29 September 2014 - - - - - - · 120 views

When Secular Children Fly Solo At Church This weekend was a personal test for my parenting. As an atheist parent, I am pretty adamant in presenting both sides of an argument and using context when discussing religious belief with my kids. The only confirmation of how fair of a job I am doing is when the kids end up in awkward situations of religious types where I am not present. I eagerly wait t...

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest

Posted by zomberina , 15 September 2014 - - - - - - · 191 views

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest For many, many years, I have always found an unending fount of devilish giggles whenever I read sappy church signs. You know, the ones that are thought up by the honorary witty member of the church congregation that plays on puns, abuses homophones, and loves to dabble in sappy poetry attempts. What better way to market a deity than with comedy?

I very r...

Atheist Women: Why Are They More In The Boardrooms Than Heard In The Streets?

Posted by zomberina , 09 September 2014 - - - - - - · 227 views

Atheist Women: Why Are They More In The Boardrooms Than Heard In The Streets? Everywhere I scroll, I find many atheist and secular minded individuals with my same mindset. No God. No religion. Acceptance for all. On the television, it is always the same faces of Dawkins, Harris, Silverman, and occasionally Cupp. I run into the same issues on blog sites like Patheos, Freethought, Secular Coalition, and American Atheists. Same male f...

Gardening is almost Biblical at harvest time. The ultimate satisfaction of its caretaker is the goal. Beauty is never enough.

Ferguson: A Larger Dialog

Ferguson: A Larger Dialog Ferguson, MO.

Okay, please don't roll your eyes and think "Here we ago again. Another blog about police brutality, police states in America, and racist bashing." I'm not going to be analyzing the events of Ferguson, per say. I am writing about a larger picture here. No speeches about how important it is to train our public servants to be more tolerant in...

A Few Thoughts On The Whole "what If You Go To Hell?" Scenario

Posted by zomberina , 19 August 2014 - - - - - - · 222 views

A Few Thoughts On The Whole "what If You Go To Hell?" Scenario We have all had that conversation with friends, family, and even in our own minds have pondered the validity of the "What if you go to Hell?" scenario.

Images of devils, demons, exposed human flesh to flame, faces twisted in torturous poses, evil looking imps in observant reveries of delight. The overall themes being rejection, exile, physically unbearab...

I'm Tired Of Turning The Other Cheek

Posted by zomberina , 18 August 2014 - - - - - - · 211 views

I'm Tired Of Turning The Other Cheek I was taught that you earned respect first by belief, and then by your works. That you must live the example you preach to others, and to fail to do so required public shaming amongst your family and fellow church goers. The stigma of being "that church member" was enormous, so the day I was caught wiping a huge booger on the bottom of our metal flip out...

Nwo, Illuminati, Blood Moons, And Hot Dogs: Practicing Political Atheism While Living In A Zealously Theistic Country

Posted by zomberina , 17 August 2014 - - - - - - · 288 views

Nwo, Illuminati, Blood Moons, And Hot Dogs: Practicing Political Atheism While Living In A Zealously Theistic Country It seems over the last decade we have more things to be afraid of. Between the advent of engineered disease, and surreptitious attacks of mind boggling computer viruses that could potentially bring down banking systems globally, it would seem we need to look at everything we encounter with a fearful eye. Hidden within the plastic liner of that Doritos bag...
