Commandments for a Modern World Losing it’s Religion: A Sermon on a Sunday

When Moses came down the mount, he had two plates and on them were commandments. According to legend, there were ten. Unfortunately, in a fit of rage, Moses spoke with his own interpretation of what was allegedly on those plates. We don’t really know what those commandments were… Why you ask? Eight generations passed before a single word of this was penned to paper. Can you say “Simon Says”?

So here we go in this modern world where religion has a smaller influence because of it’s intolerance and interpretations to fit an agenda that has no relevance today. Remember… We are told that Moses said… (before he allegedly threw the plates and destroyed them)… “Those who shall not live by the law, shall die by the law.” Sounds more like a christian fundamentalism chant as battle drums are heard… or a more understandable term… “Sharia Law

Quote of The Day 22 January 2014 – Believing

Cover of When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?

“When it comes to believing in god, I really, really tried… but… the more you look around, the more you realize… something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger filth, poverty, torture, crime corruption, the ice capades… This is not good work. If this is the best god can do, I’m not impressed. Results like this do not belong on the resume of a supreme being.”

“Atheism is a non-prophet organization”

“You know who I pray to? Joe Pesci… He looks like a guy who can get things done. Joe Pesci doesn’t fuck around… For years, I asked god to do something about my noisy neighbor with the barking dog. Joe Pesci straightened that cocksucker out with one visit.”

Quote of the Day 9 December 2013 – Myself

“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think. The only thing I am for sure is unsure, and this means I’m growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.”

Quote of the Day 22 November 2013 – A Demon

Friedrich Nietzsche

Cover of Friedrich Nietzsche

“What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more’ … Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.”
? Friedrich NietzscheThe Gay Science: with a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs

“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”
? Martin Luther King, Jr

Intelligent Design Fail

“Given an infinite number of options and perfect foresight, would you design a world where children are raped?”

Deism

A question for Theists (Christians etc), Deists, & Agnostics: Would you design mental disease or defect that compels someone to abuse children?

If god did that, he can’t be a force for good and his words are meaningless.

Would someone please explain this to me?
