The subject pretty much says it all and really points to the message of this entry; we were all born without belief in any sort of deity or supernatural figure. This should be self-evident, as I shall briefly go over soon, but it would seem that some people do not understand this piece of biological fact. If it is so obvious then why is it being stated here? Simply because the same old brain-bug continues to be repeated, here as an example, and it needs to be refuted soundly.

During my casual browsing through the ol’ interwebs, I came across a remarkable level of exceptionally daft blog entries here on WordPress. Now blog entries that are not exactly intellectual achievements are not exactly uncommon but the frequency of them on this particular day seemed quite odd. So this entry of mine is to merely showcase a handful of these rather silly entries and briefly explain why they are a clear waste of space. It may seem petty to do so but there is far too much idiocy in this world of ours, those who perpetuate it’s spread need to be pointed out and ridiculed.

Some time back I created a quick comparison, for satirical purposes, between Autobot Leader Optimus Prime and Christian Leader Jesus Christ (there is even a useful pictorial chart for convenience). This comparison showed that if you wish to live by the example of a particular character than you would indeed be much better off going with the Peter Cullen voiced bearer of the Matrix of Leadership. If nothing else, he can give you a lift down-town whilst his opponent could do nothing of the sort.
This time we take a look at the Dark Knight Crusader vs. Jesus Christ. Which possesses the better philosophy? Which has the better track record and achievements? Who has the cooler car? And, most importantly, who serves as a better role model and example for humanity?

Oddly relating to the last entry, the Telegraph (that’s a British newspaper, so American readers will have to cope with the -our suffixes. Oh, suck it up!) is reporting on Christians who feel like they are being discriminated against … mostly when they are trying to discriminate against other people. Irony sense … tingling!

This entry being written on Christmas might be of interest to some but it should not be surprising. Last night the annual ‘Carols by Candlelight’ event was televised across the country; I sat and watched some of it and it spurned forth a number of questions and lines of thought.
The first thing that struck me was the amount of lies being communicated throughout the evening, and even the entire festive season for that matter, especially aimed at children. Nothing that is built upon a lie is good. Ends do not justify the means, especially in this case. So why persist in the nonsense that is ‘Santa Clause’? It certainly sets a bad precedent in terms of trust between parents and child; if a parents lies to a child about what is considered an important time of the year then what else is false? There is absolutely no reason that a parent cannot say that Christmas is just a celebration where people try to be as kind to each other as they can. There is no need for the lies and falsehoods. Whatever shape they may take.

Church attendance across the globe is going down faster than Pamela Anderson in a football team locker room in almost all cases (the exception being those absurd US mega-churches but they are far more a business than an actual church). Why is this happening? Former Australian Defence Force Anglican bishop Tom Frame is blaming a lot of churches that he’s labelled as ‘weak’, ‘insipid’ and ‘unintelligible’. Let’s take a look at what he’s said, thanks to the ABC, and see exactly where Frame has gone wrong.

A story coming out of Glasgow caught my eye just now, one regarding a modern art gallery holding an exhibition titled “Made in God’s Image”. This exhibition had a Bible on display and they actively invited people to write in it. Now that said Bible has had messages written in it they don’t like, certain people have claimed it has been defaced and are upset. Of course, they reach this conclusion without actually thinking the matter through at all.
