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 ...

8 more shocking things you didn’t know about the Biblical Noah’s Ark story (that the movie totally got wrong)

I was less than impressed with the 2014 remake of the biblical story of Noah and the Ark, featuring Russell Crowe. While some of the thematic and symbolistic changes they made were interesting (I'll discuss those below), the controversy itself offers much for discussion. People are angry because it "wasn't true to the Bible." But the truth is most Christians don't realize the version they learned in Sunday School isn't in the Bible either - ...

St. Valentine is a lie – and why that means you should question everything.

It's Valentine's Day again, which means we'll all be buying cards, chocolates and flowers for our significant other (or ridiculing the holiday for its commercial vapidness). Since Valentine's Day is one of the major holidays of the western world, you've probably heard the history: We celebrate Valentine's day in honor of St. Valentinus, who was martyred a long time ago around February 14th - the "romance" part is because he continued to marry soldiers during wartime; ...

Can non-believers be creative? Steven Pressfield’s new proof for the existence of God (and why it fails)

Today on Steven Pressfield's blog he posted an article called How Resistance Proves the Existence of God. Let me start by saying, I saw this coming years ago. I saw it in his now famous "War or Art" and in the interview he did with Oprah. I saw it in the new book "Do the Work" Seth Godin asked him to write. In brief, Pressfield believes that we are all called to produce art, and our greatest enemy in ...

Sherlock Holmes hates Americans: Guy Fawkes and Revolutionary Terrorism

I was excited to take a break from writing my thesis tonight to start Season 3 of Sherlock Holmes, "The Empty Hearse." Since my thesis is focused mainly on Milton, Guy Fawkes and revolutionary terrorism, I was very surprised that the plot of episode one takes place among November 5th events that commemorate the infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The interesting thing about Guy Fawkes - who has become the de facto symbol of revolutionary action ...

How Wreck-it Ralph is secretly teaching kids to love Satan

Within just the past decade, there has been a rapid shift in the characterization of the Other – from monstrous, to misunderstood; from frightening to friendly. Thus, vampires, werewolves and witches have changed from being evil creatures of the night, to tragically misunderstood victims of judgmental traditionalist organizations who are constantly challenging their right to exist. In 2012 we even had the movie Wreck it Ralph, in which all the classic “evil” characters from video ...

  Recently I found this awesome Baphomet sweater and decided to give a few away by having a quick poetry contest. I deleted some comments so that those who spent more time and posted longer poems would win (I hate moderating.... Cameron G - if you get in touch with me I'll send you an Amazon gift card.) Liz Johnson - Sweater Santa Claus I beg of thee Place my presents below the tree So when I wake there I ...

Are all Chinese people Satan worshipers?

I was looking for something on Alibaba recently and saw a post I thought was funny - a giant inflatable Santa, but they had misspelled it to "Satan." No big deal, but kind of funny. But I looked around some more, and there were several dozen different products making the same mistake. You'd think if they couldn't speak or spell in English, then they would've use a translator and been careful to copy the right letters. Or ...

War on Christmas: a blasphemous ugly sweater giveaway contest!

Christmas isn't a big deal here in Taiwan, so it's hard to get "in the season" or riled up by this "War on Christmas" controversy. But I want to celebrate the meaning of Christmas by giving away two things I really want, rather than buying them for myself. First up is this amazing Christmas "ugly-sweater" with Baphomet on it. Next is this snazzy hoodie (that's not even available outside of Taiwan but I'll ship it to you). ...

The Bible on Tattoos – Can Christians get tattoos?

Tens of Thousands, if not millions, of Christians have tattoos. Although Christians believe that the Bible is the word of God, many Christians feel that that Old Testament is largely irrelevant since the coming of Jesus Christ. Hence, they aren't too concerned about, for example, Leviticus 19:28: Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:28 Is it about Tattoos? Almost definitely. But there are so, ...

Is Percy Jackson Christianizing Greek Mythology?

"You just gotta have faith," seems to be the motto of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013). It's repeated several times. Faith in what, we don't know - we're dealing with a pluralistic oligarchy of gods, only one of whom is Percy's father. Sure, Percy is the only son, the chosen one, the hero... Percy is the ONLY human son of all THREE of the main Gods (Poseidon, Zeus and Hades). Kind of like Jesus is the ...

What I hated about the Carrie movie (if Jesus were Christian, he would have killed himself.)

I love Julianne Moore and Chloë Grace Moretz, and I think they were perfect in the roles of Stephen King's "Carrie" and her crazy-religious-freak mother. But there was a lot about the 2013 movie adaption of King's novel that was disturbing. And no, not just all the blood, violence, gore and death. Carrie was a very Christian movie. Of course the original story is already highly religious in nature, with Carrie being forced to pray for forgiveness ...
