Deflation

  A friend of mine brought his pretty young niece with him to the VFW hall last night. She said she’d like to go out with me sometime. I asked why she would want to go out with a geezer like me. She said she thought it might further her career. I...

My Ex

It's sad, really, when loving couples slowly drift apart due to subtle cultural differences. She said "tomahto", I said "tomayto". She said "potayto", I said "get out of my life, bitch".

A Portrait of Picasso as a Young Man

Mary got my little goat.   A bird in the hand is worth a pound of cure.   Never put off until tomorrow never comes.   Judge not, lest ye be all that ye can be.   Never bite off more than meets the eye.   If life gives you...

Thoughts Sucks? Tell Ben Ogden

If you'd like to tell ben ogden how you feel about his neglect of this site, send him a friend request on facebook. You'll recognize him because his avatar includes a computer screen with thoughts.com on the screen. He'll probably accept, although it...

Dear God,

  Lord, give me beer to enjoy changing the things I can change, and beer to console me for the things I can't change, and beer to help me not care about the difference.  

Feeling Suicidal?

Razors pain you Rivers are damp Acids stain you Drugs cause cramp.   Guns aren't lawful Nooses give Gas smells awful You might as well live.   author unknown  

Christianity Owns American Slavery

Religion has always played a dominant role in the slave industry.    Legal black slavery existed for about a thousand years, beginning in the 9th century and ending in the 19th century. Over 25 million Africans were taken by force. Some 5...

Searching for Porn in All the Wrong Places

One might expect atheists or non-believers to be less fastidious than Christians or Muslims in their sexual conduct and attitudes. One might be surprised, in that case, to learn that Christians and Muslims apparently have a greater appetite for online...

The Chimerical Morality / Christianity Correlation

Christians claim that their religion is a force for good in the world. They would have us believe that without Christianity there would be no morality, or certainly much less of it. And they assert that we see clear and convincing evidence of this...

When Christianity Ruled

This is a very long read. But it is information that every Christian should be familiar with. It is information every potential Christian convert should be familiar with.   By the end of the 12th century, Rome had emerged as the center of...

Hillbillary Blew It

As Dick Morris has pointed out, Hillbillary blew it. When barry decided to stay home and pick his ass, Hillbillary should have gone to Paris. Marching with the terrorist protesters would have gone a long way toward establishing that she is tough on...

What's Not to Like about Christianity?

So, first God made man in His image. And by that, Christians mean man is absolutely nothing like God in any way. And God gave man free will. By which Christians mean if man doesn't do exactly what God wants, the way He wants it, man is sentenced to...

Christianity is Insane, Reason #1,614,825

The Doctrine of Original Sin declares that man ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge -- he acquired a mind and became a rational being. It was the knowledge of good and evil -- he became a moral being. He was sentenced to earn his bread by his labor...

Christian Cannibals?

The early Christians were accused of heinous behavior, including infanticide and orgies, imputations that Christians themselves later used against their enemies. In the face of such charges, Justin Martyr was forced to say, "Do you also believe that...

If You Are a Christian, You Are a Pagan

The most celebrated Fathers of the Christian church, the most frequently quoted, and those whose names stand the highest were nothing more or less than pagans, being born and educated pagans. These celebrated pagan-Christian fathers included...

The Insanity of Christianity

For those who are not familiar with this story from the Bible, it started with the very first couple to walk the earth. God created Adam and Eve in his own image, declared that what he had made was very good, then got so enraged with them that he...

Early Christians Admitted their Pagan Roots

Another of the Pagan criticisms was that the Christians were plagiarists (and degraders) of old ideologies and concepts, an accusation that the Christians were compelled to confirm as they attempted to gain respectability for their  "new...

We Don't Need FEMA

What is the proper role of the US Constitution (COTUS)? Is it still the foundation of our form of government? Or is it obsolete, as liberals believe? Most people seem to think that parts of it are still valid and must be enforced while other parts are...

RIP, Ben Ogden

I heard that ben ogden was arrested in Viet Nam on drug charges. He was then killed by his homosexual lover so he couldn't talk. That, it appears, was just a rumor. There's no evidence to back that up. Still, he hasn't used his facebook account in...

Paul Was Rejected by Early Christians

During the first three-and-a-half centuries of the common era, the most powerful rival of Christianity was the religion known as Mithraism. It had been introduced to Rome by Cilician seamen about 70 BCE, and later spread throughout the Roman world....

Understanding Islam

Freedom of expression does not extend to insulting the Prophets of Allah, whatever your views on the events in Paris today! Muslims love the Messenger Muhammad (saw) more than their parents, children and even themselves! Why don't people...

About those ICHTHUS Bumper Stickers . . .

The fish in Christian symbolism represents Jesus Christ, and in the old Roman catacombs, the fish symbol appears frequently. The Greek word for fish is "ichthus" and the early Christians saw in the letters of this word a monogram summarizing their...
