A Christian Analysis Of Atheism, Part 1

By FMeekins, published on Aug 4, 2009

...In Genesis has astutely pointed out that social issues and public policies rest upon a foundation of thought and belief. Keeping with this analogy, atheism proceeds from a theoretical base up through a practical program designed to influence various spheres of culture such as politics and education with prominent luminaries within the movement solidifying this mental edifice along the way.

As stated elsewhere within these introductory comments, atheism did not suddenly appear on the doorstep of the twentieth and twenty-first century fully formed demanding things like the removal... (more)

Friday Night Lights

By DLFerguson, published on Jul 29, 2009

...LIGHTS convinced me that it is. I liked how the movie was told in an almost documentary fashion and didn’t pull any punches as far as showing the good and bad of small town high school football. For a lot of these boys, football is the only way they’re going to get a college education and get out of their town. This is indeed more than just a game to them. For most of them, it’ll define the course of the rest of their lives. This is really brought home when Boobie injures his knee and is told he cannot play any longer. Boobie accuses the MRI technician of taking... (more)

An Experiment That Would Make A Difference

By baynurse, published on Jul 28, 2009

...

So, basically, a prison is full of angry, depressed, malnourished, self loathing, individuals who are locked down without exercise or sunshine.  So what happens when they are let out?  Oh by the way, let out with no job skills, not that there are any jobs, no housing, no education, and a prison record.  So what would you do in that situation? What options are there to make a better life, or even a semblance of a decent life.  After years of incarceration, institutionalized living, blind obedience to the bigger, badder, stronger bully, whether it be cop or convict. ... (more)

By baynurse, published on Jul 27, 2009

...children, who have worked hard to build their homes, and work their land to supply their food and economy.

These undocumented workers have survived what most Americans could hardly stand, they have endured racism, insults, laws being passed to prevent them from health care, or education. They have endured poverty, humility, and being made to work the veryland stolen from their ancestors. Now, my Amigos! Go and enjoy the fruit of your labor, return to your families, enjoy your beautiful country abundant in beautiful, hard working, culturally rich people. You have earned... (more)

...

Have you ever heard of amino acids, the building blocks of cells, do you get them all in your diet? Do you knowwhat vitamins you need to be healthy and how much you need and what foods contain them? have you gotten enough clean, lead and chlorine free water in your body today? Have you gotten any type of body movement today?

I see, that in todays world of new discoveries, we need to discover some old things, like back to basic nutrition, excercize, meditation and education on healthy living.

...eating, and atheism. Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy's murders and Viet Nam further drove my parents even further away from conservatism, although they briefly flirted with Barry Goldwater. While still in high school, with my parent's encouragement, I enlisted in the military for the educational and housing benefits. I served at the tail end of the horrific Viet Nam War. Got to travel the world for 'free' with my military id.I went to all of the United States, Paris, London, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Rome, Toledo, Milan, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, and even... (more)

Dad's First Driving Lesson

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 18, 2009

...me over the years, most notably when he taught me how to drive a car.

Although I consider myself a good driver today at age 50, I had a very rocky start in the world of vehicle operation way back in the summer of 1974, when I turned 16. The school I attended didn’t have a driver’s education behind-the-wheel program, so my father tried to teach me himself, in his old Opel Kadett in the parking lot of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

During our first few lessons, I did the following: I hit the only other car in the enormous stadium parking lot, backing up blindly; I turned the... (more)

The Better Song

By Glenn T, published on Jun 7, 2009

...place in your memory that you may hold for Boy George and Culture Club. The unashamed androgyny of the whole thing practically demanded that you enjoy dancing around to it like you were at a grade school slumber party. And Karma Chameleon had lyrics that, even now with nineteen years of education, I haven't the foggiest notion what they mean (notwithstanding the amount of time it took me to realize that he wasn't saying "Comma Chameleon"). But it's clear that the gents(?) of Culture Club didn't have the lyrical bravery or wherewithal to try and actually rhyme the word "chameleon"... (more)
