Jonah and the Whale – AKA Oh Crap They Still Want This To Be Literally True!

I can’t believe it. (That is simultaneously stunned disbelief and a joke.) Sure, I sang the song as a child. I had coloring books like this one: But when I made a list of stuff to “debunk”, I thought that this one wasn’t worthy. It’s too ridiculous. Surely awareness of fish and whale biology wouldContinue reading “Jonah and the Whale – AKA Oh Crap They Still Want This To Be Literally True!”

God Made the Sun Stand Still for Joshua? Really?

Libby Lawrence 8/2020 (Map by Wilbur Glen Voliva 1931) You know the story, God made the sun stand still so Israel could slaughter its enemies. Actually, there’s also another story where the Sun traveled backwards (reverse movement of a shadow on stairs) so Judah’s King Hezekiah could be healed. (Isaiah 38:7-8). Joshua 10:12-14 On theContinue reading “God Made the Sun Stand Still for Joshua? Really?”

Horus Gilgamesh!!! I’m a huge fan.

I wish I had discovered this author years ago. I’m definitely buying anything he writes. His “Awkward Moments (not found in your average) Children’s Bible” series is stunning. Go buy them. Now. I’ll wait. These books say “Children’s Bible”, and they LOOK like they could be children’s books, thanks to the brilliant illustrations byContinue reading “Horus Gilgamesh!!! I’m a huge fan.”

Women Can Be Saved – Through Childbearing

Women weren’t considered human in the Old Testament. When, in the Old Testament, they count the size of a group, they are only counting males. The Covenant with G*d was through circumcision. In the New Testament, though, they changed things up! Some women may be saved conditionally: 1 Timothy 2:11-14 11 A woman should learnContinue reading “Women Can Be Saved – Through Childbearing”

10 Reasons for Man to Leave Religion Behind By Mike Floorwalker

It’s been reported recently that atheism is on the rise worldwide, while religiosity is declining. The relationship between the religious and non-religious has always been a tricky one; while many from each group eventually find themselves forced to admit that there is much to learn from the other, atheists still generally have a tough timeContinue reading “10 Reasons for Man to Leave Religion Behind By Mike Floorwalker”

The Exodus Never Happened And Jericho’s Walls Never Fell

Huxley/Laura Miller 2001/Finkelstein/Silberman/Other Sources Libby’s Note: I do not have any information on “Huxley”. He seems to be quoting from many sources without attributing them. ☹️ Some parts of this – are plagiarized – from Laura Miller’s excellent piece “King David was a nebbish”.

Christian Clichés Compiled by Psycho Dave Many atheists, myself included, have argued with Christians and Creationists so long, that we’ve noticed many of them seem to repeat the exact same statements over and over again, particularly with respect to their dismissals of what we have to say. By “dismissals”, I mean that they usually end their thread of the conversationContinue reading “Christian Clichés Compiled by Psycho Dave”

Christian Hate 1 – The Military Religious Freedom Foundation

Libby Lawrence, 11/16/2020 Nearly everyone has encountered Christians who smugly proclaim that “God is Love”, and that their beliefs are accepting, loving, and peaceful. But at the tiniest bit of pushback, say, a question of their beliefs or activities, they react with absolute fury. Their religion, their pastors, their leaders are the ultimate authority, completelyContinue reading “Christian Hate 1 – The Military Religious Freedom Foundation”

Christian Hate 2 – It’s Baked Into the Belief System

By Libby Lawrence Nov. 17, 2020 As I have mentioned in another blog, I grew up Pentecostal.  My Mother had the Christian radio station playing all day, every day.  Billy Graham of course, J. Vernon McGee, Jack Van Impe, Jim and Tammy Bakker, Charles Halff, John Hagee, Billy James Hargis, Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Swaggart, OralContinue reading “Christian Hate 2 – It’s Baked Into the Belief System”

Amy Coney Barrett – I know WHAT she is. And it scares me.

Libby Lawrence Nov. 17, 2020 Yeah, before you say “Libby, relax, she’s Catholic” – no she’s not.  Not any variety my Catholic friends would recognize, anyway.  She’s a Charismatic.  And no, I haven’t joined QAnon.  I know because I was raised Pentecostal. As a child, I attended the Church of God Holiness School. The campusContinue reading “Amy Coney Barrett – I know WHAT she is. And it scares me.”
