Is Donald Trump the antichrist?

0 No tags Permalink 1

It's been years since I stopped obsessing about religious history and started writing young adult fiction instead, but a book came across my desk today that caught my interest. It's called Rise of Little Horn, and it's about whether Donald Trump is the antichrist. I actually think the author's ominous one-page website for Rise of the Little Horn is pretty cool, and similar to what I did for my early books... though I've written before I think ...

Dominion TV Series: The AntiChrist is the Hero in the War on Heaven

25 years ago, God disappeared. Some angels blamed humans, and led by Gabriel, they waged a war against the humans. Other, higher angels, led by Michael, decided to protect the humans. A child is born, with markings on his body, who will grow up to become the savior of the human race and lead mankind out of darkness. Followers of the faith "continue to believe that the chosen one, our savior will reveal himself to us." The ...

Bart Ehman vs. Timothy Freke: Did Jesus Exist?

Thanks to New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman's new book "Did Jesus Exist", the debate over the historical Jesus has reached mainstream. Today CNN posted an article about called The Jesus debate: Man vs. myth Interestingly, the only "Mythicist" writers they quote from are Robert Price (author of the Price, author of “Deconstructing Jesus “Deconstructing Jesus" published in 2000) and Timothy Freke (co-author of "The Jesus Mysteries: Was the ‘Original Jesus’ a Pagan God?" published in 2001). According ...

Obama, the Antichrist and the 2nd Coming of Jesus: White House Shooter Ortega-Hernandez

This week a student at Idaho State University, Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, took some shots at the White House, apparently in an attempt to assassinate Obama, whom he saw as the AntiChrist. Soon after, the bizarre video he'd made as a statement of his philosophy and desperate plea to get on the Oprah Show surfaced (you can watch it below). The video raises some interesting topics about American foreign policy, legalization of marijuana, and the dangers ...

Why Obama is the Antichrist, and why you should vote for him in 2012 anyway.

Apocalyptic fears may decide 2012 presidential election. The New York Times posted an article a few days ago by Matthew Avery Sutton called "Why the Antichrist Matters in Politics" which deserves comment. My liberal, educated, tolerant and open-minded friends and colleagues often don't understand the need to be critical of or cynical about religion. Why not allow everyone to believe what they want? Surely they aren't hurting anyone? The truth is that the religious right in ...

Bart Ehrman: Did Jesus Exist? Is there evidence for a historical Jesus?

When asked in a recent interview (The Infidel Guy Show) about the evidence for the historical Jesus, Bart Ehrman threw out the tired line "No Serious/No Reputable Scholar doubts that a historical Jesus existed." Ehrman's support of the historical Jesus is used by apologists to show how even extremely liberal theologians like Bart cannot bring themselves to doubt a historical Jesus (the title of one blog post is "Atheist Stumped by Overwhelming Evidence for Jesus' ...

Bible archaeologists discover tablet that refutes Jesus’ resurrection

Did Jesus Christ really resurrect from the grave after three days? Probably not, it turns out. In 2008 archaeologists found a stone tablet that tells of a Jewish rebel hero who died and came back to life after three days. Jesus? No! His name was Simon, and he lived decades before Jesus. What we learn from this is that the Jews already had a template of the messiah that they expected, and they began applying ...

Introduction to ‘Famous Writers Against Christianity’

2 No tags Permalink 0

This may appear at first as a trite, inconsequential or supercilious category. It may seem angry, spiteful or vindictive. However, let me be clear, the purpose of this category (and to a large extent, this website) is education. Atheism or criticism of organized religion are too often seen as a modern problem; the breakdown of the fabric of our lives, related to the disintegration of the nuclear family or a loss in ethical values. It is ...

Ralph Waldo Emerson against Christianity

1 No tags Permalink 0

Ralph Waldo Emerson had balls. Born in Boston, 1803, son of a Unitarian minister, Emerson himself joined the ministry at 21. By 1832, however, Emerson had become so skeptical of the validity of the Lord's Supper that he could no longer administer it. A few months later he resigned. On a Sunday evening, the 15th July, 1838, Emerson delivered a speech to the senior class of the Divinity College of Cambridge - a speech that was ...
