Why am I an atheist?

When I let people know that I am an atheist, usually in response to a question, I am usually surprised that nobody asks me “Why?”. I can surmise two possible reasons. The first is that there is a genuine lack of true interest and the question was asked out of ordinary curiosity. The second […]

Christmas? Really?

As I prepare for the worst day of my year, it has been interesting to watch people celebrating the feast of Mammon while kidding themselves that they are celebrating the birth of a child doomed to a most agonising death.

Christmas Eve is, for me,  a time to feel the deepest sympathy for those […]

The evil that is the priesthood

One of the things that has always amazed me is that once the priests updated God and turned Him into a dim shadow of His former self, they assumed His mantle of disciplinarian.

The true God, He of the Old Testament, had no qualms about meting out drastic and violent punishments to those who […]

It would be nice, wouldn’t it?

Positively mental attitude

The only thing that creates the drive to create and improve matters is the simple ability to see that something is wrong – an ability PMA works tirelessly to erase. […]

We have really blown it!

Oh, boy! A young chap asked me to define the direction in which I believe modern society is going.

It isn’t going, it has gone!

There is no longer a society in the west that is worthy of the name. Members of the population are no longer individuals with individual beliefs but sheeple with […]

Dumb is as Dumb does.

As I have grown older and seen many around me die before their time, I am often left wondering what the value of the human race really is.

My childhood was spent among people who knew who they were, people who owed nothing to anyone but to whom everyone owed a great deal.
