Why I Am A Creationist 3

Inevitably, someone accuses me of being a Creationist simply because I was raised that way. If I’d been born into the Muslim world, I’d be a Muslim, they say. If I’d been born into one of USAmerica’s Coastal Ignorance belts, I’d be a godless liberal. Et cetera ad nauseam. The problem with this analogy is…

Why I Am A Creationist 2

This post has been long time in coming, but I simply haven’t had time to put it down. My plate is rather full. My intent last time was to give my reasons as to why I am a Creationist. My last post can be summarized thus: 1. I believe in God… a. …because of the…

The Church of PZ “Wackaloon” Myers & Ideological Child Abuse

Why USAmerica is Still the Mission Field

In my youth, I recall seeing a banner stretched across the back of the sanctuary of an old country church, directly over the exit, which warned (usually in big, bold, red letters!) that: “You are now entering the Mission Field!!” For the vast majority of Appalachian Protestant fundamentalists and charismatics, when you mentioned the mission…

Jesus & The Doctrine of Separation

Would Jesus have been a good fundamentalist? I’ve often commented that I’m trying to put the “fun” back into fundamentalist because, let’s face it, the “duh” and the “mental” are pretty much covered. Due to the separationist nature of the fundamentalist movement, we tend to be more divided and nitpicky than we are unified and,…
