What is the ummah?

The word “ummah” is used within Islam to describe the global community of Muslims. This term is derived from the ancient Semitic word um or umm, meaning “MOTHER” and “thus hints at the ideal mother-child relationship.” This fact of the word connoting MOTHERHOOD is betrayed by the abject mistreatment of females within this ideology. It …

9/11 bikers descend on DC in support of freedom and troops

Very moving! Yesterday’s events in DC with hundreds of thousands to possibly a million or more patriotic American bikers descending on Washington, DC, to make a statement about the assault against our freedoms were exciting and encouraging. (Note that the last slide here has last year’s date but the rest of the images are apparently …

Is Syria all about natural gas?

I’ve been discussing Syria for some time on Facebook. Here is a recent exchange. Hector V. said: “I want to know your opinion of syria. DO you believe all this is a zionist conspiracy as they say? what do you think is the goal of the United states? what do you think will happen? thank …

What does the Koran say about nonbelievers?

Ah, the peace, love and tolerance! Here are some delightful sentiments that we should encourage spreading around the world! Why, oh why, are there violent religious fanatics attacking nonbelievers all over the globe?? [/sarc] “About sixty-one percent of the contents of the Koran are found to speak ill of the unbelievers or call for their …

Krishna’s mother’s status ultimately irrelevant to subject of parthenogenesis

The world is falling apart, so it’s hard to believe there are Christian fanatics trolling the internet, arguing about THIS subject. Regardless of any specifics, the point is that the concept of the VIRGIN MOTHER PROGENITOR OF THE COSMOS is very ancient and predates Christianity by many thousands of years. We are dealing with an …

Top 10 myths about the religion part of Zeitgeist

If you’re one of the hundreds of millions globally who have seen the first or religion part of the first “ZEITGEIST” film, you will appreciate the short list I’ve put together at Examiner.com: http://www.examiner.com/list/top-10-myths-about-the-religion-part-of-zeitgeist Included in my article are images like the one below: As you will see, there is superior documentation to back up …

Ignorance is the mother of religious devotion

I love this quote from the erudite Rev. Dr. Geddes so much that it will be prominently featured in my book Did Moses Exist? “On the whole, then, I think it may be laid down as an axiom that the bulk of Christians, whether Papists or Protestants, cannot be said to have a rational faith, …

Mainstream scholarship: Abraham and Moses mythicism is respectable

Note how this Wiki article reports that modern scholars question the historicity of the biblical story of the Israelite patriarch Joseph, using comparative religion/mythology: “Modern day scholars believe the historicity of the events in the Joseph narrative cannot be demonstrated. Hermann Gunkel, Hugo Gressmann and Gerhard von Rad identified the story of Joseph as a …

Cracked.com’s shockingly crappy article about ‘Religulous’ and ‘Zeitgeist’

Cracked.com had an article disparaging documentaries “shockingly full of crap” that included the first “Zeitgeist” film. Unfortunately, the article itself – which had almost a million views in one day – is shockingly full of crap, as the author has a very superficial knowledge of the subject of comparative religion and mythology. Note that she …

Israelite slavery and plunder

Since childhood, many of us have been subjected repeatedly to the biblical story of the poor, downtrodden Hebrew “slaves” of the Exodus, who had to flee Egypt while being chased by the wicked old pharaoh. Not only is there no scientific evidence for such an event, but how many people have been told that the …

Restoring Alaskan culture and dignity

When I was a small child, we did not have smart phones, computers, the internet, Netflix, DVD players or VCRs. So, it was with great wonder when one week in social studies class we were shown a series of remarkable films using a reel-to-reel movie projector, a technology new to most people at the time. …

Islamic insult jihad

Insulting nonbelievers is part of Islamic jihad. Hence, Muslim scholars get a pass on spewing insults at others on Twitter and elsewhere, while the rest of us are held to higher standards. I’m sure I will be insulted just for passing this information along: The honour of Islam lies in insulting kufr and kafirs [infidels]. …

Washington: Free-speech street activist has pioneer city scratching its head

UPDATE: Olson continues to do his free-speech activism and has been cited twice now, with the possible penalty of a $1000 fine and/or 90 days in jail. The free-speech activist in question is one of my oldest friends, Erik “Arhata Osho” Olson, whom I’ve known for almost 30 years. Arhata likes to occupy public spaces …

Bangladesh: 49 million Hindus missing since 1947

The U.S. prides itself on being a great humanitarian country, with good reason in many cases. So, why are we not hearing THIS longstanding atrocity – GENOCIDE – on the MSM? And why does it take a Republican politician to bring it to the government’s attention? Millions slaughtered and raped – one guess who the …

European Parliament: Fundamentalist Islam at root of global terrorism

The European Parliament is admitting, finally, that fundamentalist Islam is at the root of global terrorism. What Islamophobes! Seriously, what took them so long? The rest of us have known this fact for years. It’s one of the reasons we have objected to the proliferation of Saudi-funded mosques all over the world – paid for …

Heads up on this limited time sale of four great Stellar House Publishing books! Who Was Jesus? is the name of one of my books that examines the numerous cracks in the foundation of the gospel story.

U.S. to flood American airspace with 30,000 spy drones?

Although the name “Snowden” instantly conjures up American governmental spying on citizens, we haven’t been hearing much about this development, reported in 2012 by The Washington Times (February 7): Drones over U.S. get OK by Congress Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s … a drone, and it’s …

Egypt throws off Muslim Brotherhood oppression

Now that Egypt’s Morsi has been given the boot, I should note that I personally objected strenuously to the use of American taxpayer money to impose ISLAMIC/SHARIA ENSLAVEMENT on the Egyptian people in the first place. It is beyond significant that possibly the single largest gathering in history was a PROTEST AGAINST ISLAMIZATION. What’s that …

No, Zeitgeist has not been refuted!

In addition to the numerous supposed “debunking” sites are images that purport to refute the first or religion part of the first “Zeitgeist” film (“ZG1.1”). We have already demonstrated the brief summary contentions in ZG1.1 to be largely accurate. In addition to numerous articles and a nearly 600-page book on the subject, as well as …

Orpheus, Gnosticism and Christianity

Here is the Youtube edition of my interview with Miguel Conner of Aeon Byte radio about the ancient cult of Orpheus and its relationship to Christianity and Gnosticism. In this program, I discuss a possibly pre-Christian artifact of “Orpheos Bakkikos” on a cross, as well as many other subjects. If you would like more information …

Did Jesus calm Wallenda’s winds?

Like hundreds of millions around the world, I watched in fascination as Nik Wallenda inched his way across a 1,400-ft-high gorge in Colorado billed as the “Grand Canyon.” It was a great spectacle, to say the least. Highly distracting for a freethinker, of course, were the opening prayer by Joel Osteen – cute as he …

Radio program: A pre-Christian crucifix and origins of Gnosticism

Happy Solstice!* In a program debuting on June 22, 2013, I discuss with Miguel Conner of Aeon Byte Radio the possible Orphic influences on Christianity, including a human figure on a cross that appears to be pre-Christian. This small gemstone of a crucifix was featured on the cover of a popular book on the Jesus …

Muslim states reject UN ban on violence against women as violating Islamic law

How can it continue to be maintained that Islam is peaceful and “good for women?” Not only does the Koran sanction discrimination and bigotry against women, as well as wife-beating, but Islamic or sharia law also includes the right to marry females of any age and to have sex with girls as young as nine …

Let’s end religious fanaticism and hatred!

Forcing children and other innocents into a religion, sect or cult, without educating them about options or giving them choices, represents CHILD ABUSE and FASCISM. Adding death threats to the mix, as punishment for individuals leaving the religion, sect or cult, is just plain EVIL. If you are a member of a religion/cult that teaches …
