I just wanted to put up a post of support for the Raytractors Revolution - Atheist Central is something of a ghost town these days (and it's only 4 days into the strike).

Good work guys

Religious Inequity

One of the questions I never see answered by Christian (or an other) apologists is that of inequity.

Off the top of my head:

  1. Where you're born determines your cultural and historic background and will, inevitably, shape the decisions you make
  2. Who your parents are is a key factor in how you develop and what ideologies you are exposed to (some people have no parents and so honouring thy father & mother is a cinch)
  3. When you live becomes a factor if you're a pre-conquistador South American and the Christian God is the right one or you're living today and Quetzalcoatl is the Supreme Being
  4. What sins you commit is, apparently, irrelevant according to Mr. Comfort, so wishing you had your mate's iPod is as bad as genocide
  5. What age you die at determines how much time you had to hear the correct message
  6. The determination of Missionaries will determine whether you hear the Gospel or not for many people
  7. What your mental capacity is will determine your ability to comprehend the arguments for and against various gods
  8. Infinate punishment for finite transgressions
  9. The sins of the father being passed on to the nth generation
  10. Being turned off from religion because of fundies
Ok, there's 10 inequities in the Christian faith. Without invoking God's mysterious 'Plan' and bearing in mind that everyone has free will, how can God apply the same laws to everyone equally in such an unequal world?

First Post

As always, the first post of a new blog has to say something about how "I'm busy and I don't know how much I'll be able to contribute..." - which is true.

There is no real reason for me to have this blog, other than an experiment to see what all the fuss is about and it'll help me manage the blogs I do visit.

If you are the one person in the world who has read this text; say 'hi' because you are unique.

Ok, I'm off to think of something interesting to say in the future.
