Ranting about stuff.

Why the fuck are certain, arbitrarily-delimited words considered bad? It's absolute bullshit to say that a certain combination of sounds is "bad" or evil or anything like that. If I say "shot" it's considered absolutely okay, but change one fucking letter/sound and some people will gasp in shock. A certain person hasn't talked to me for three fucking weeks as soon as I used the word fuck in my display name/message. That too, it was clearly in order to add emphasis and not meant as an insult. I didn't even cuss while talking to her. I rarely ever do while talking orally since the trouble I'll get into just isn't worth it, but sometimes the word fuck can be useful in adding needed emphasis to a sentence or statement.

The End

When the world ends,

When it comes to a halt.

Who will be there,

To sort it all out?


The tides are turning.

We're losing sight,

Of what is around us,

What isn't alright.


Predators roaming,

Swift as night.

Searching for prey,

With all their might.


We forget who's out there,

Unable to comprehend,

What life would be like,

If it came to an end.

Another World

In another world,

Up is down and left is right.

In another world,

What is wrong is right.


To get the chance

To see what life holds

In another dimension,

To leave a world so cold.

Most would do it.

Most would accept.

To try something new,

This one single chance.


But we'd lose sight of ourselves,

Of our life and our being.

We'd forget what we love,

What we hate and our feelings.


We'd gave it all up,

For a chance to explore

A world so different

We'd fall for the lure.

Passing Time

Passing Time

60, 59, 58, 57,

The clock ticks by,

52, 51, 50, 49,

Stealing each moment,

45, 44, 43, 42,

Reminisces only remain,

38, 37, 36, 35,

We wish for it to stop,

28, 27, 26, 25,

So we can fix mistakes,

19, 18, 17, 16,

We have tried to be patient,

9, 8, 7, 6,

But we're left with nothing.

Path of Reason

I am the Co-Creator of the Freethinking website and I just wanted to give people an update about whats been going on. First we have an auction on ebay going on, we are trying to raise money to go to the Atheist Alliance conference in Washigton D.C.

the host has quirky nodding fixation, but the information is basic and critical for discussion or debate.

Is Jesus calling you?

Look at my last blog as I clearly demonstrated that atheism is illogical. Also without a God there would be no laws of logic, objective moral standards, and no such thing as truth (it would have to be relative but is the statement that truth is relative an absolute one?)

The RRS has cleary demonstrated that the only reason they do not want to belief in a God is because than they could not live their life how they wanted.

But I assure you, after living a life for myself and than living for HIm my life is way better than I have ever imagined.

The RRS does not what you to have the joy that comes with a relationship with Jesus Christ. That is why they deny the historical fact of the ressurection and want everybody to be like them. This is the same as a person who does drugs (believe me I was one of them) as the person trys to get all his friends involved in drugs. (Believe me) This person unconsiously is trying to make them feel as miserable as they feel. So in the same way is the RRS. Ask yourself why the RRS is trying so hard to take people away from their faith.

Proof of God in fine tuning

Examples of Fine Tuning in the Universe:
1.strong nuclear force constant
if larger: no hydrogen would form; atomic nuclei for most life-essential elements would be unstable; thus, no life chemistry
if smaller: no elements heavier than hydrogen would form: again, no life chemistry
2.weak nuclear force constant
if larger: too much hydrogen would convert to helium in big bang; hence, stars would convert too much matter into heavy elements making life chemistry impossible
if smaller: too little helium would be produced from big bang; hence, stars would convert too little matter into heavy elements making life chemistry impossible

What evidence will convince you?

IF you've ever watched William Lane Craig debate atheists you will realize that the only valid argument against God's existence is that there is not enough evidence. Now I want to ask atheists a question, what type of evience would you need to convince you that God is real?

How Christianity Stands out When looking at evidences ect.

A lot of sceptics push aside the phenomena of Christianity by claiming that there are tons of religions. Here are some reasons why Christianity sticks out.

First of all if you were creating a god based on observing the world around you would you create a god who is perfect, loving, and all knowing? NO you would create an imperfect god based on human characteristics based on the observable world. This is what all other gods accept for the God of Judaism and Christianity. Than you look at any way that a Holy book could be tested to see if it is from God. This is also done with prophecy. 500 + prophecies prophesy of future events in history, of Jesus death, His exact date of death, and many other things such as Israel becoming a nation and never disbanding into obscurity (Israel became a nation in 1948) Many of these prophecies are coming true now (such as people in the last days will not worship God, will love only pleasure, and that there will be more earthquakes and wars than ever before.) Also the bible tells in Job that the earth hangs on nothing. (This was the time when it was thought that the earth was on the back of a turtle.) The bible also tells about how the earth is a sphere and that space is expanding. Also every single archaeological find that has to do with the bible has complimented the historicity of it. Every single discovery! They have found the high priest who crucified Jesus' grave! They have found the well that the lame man sat at! There are 29 non-Christian sources that tell about Jesus and says that He was crucified and that the disciples belief He is the Christ.

I started a new blog, which will mostly be political, philosophical, religious, social etc..

Check it out if you wish

"I Wouldn't Like to Think That ..."

This phrase is quite a common one in dialogue between atheists and theists, and it is usually spoken by the latter. When it occurs, it is followed by something, usually true, that is in conflict with the theists' beliefs, and that the theist, for some reason, is unable to handle. I'd like to talk about some of these unthinkable ideas (I use the phrase with complete irony), and why most of them are not all that bad. It should be understood that even if these unthinkables are not quite as comforting as their religious counterparts, that has no bearing to the truth value of the religious beliefs.

Life as it seems...

"It seems rather impossible, to believe in nothing Zack, do you not care about anyone else but yourself?"

Ok... As my first blog, I would like to evolve on this idea. To begin with, how does believing in nothing ever create the idea that one is self centered? Simply because I do not allow myself to fall into the greatest superstition of all time, Christianity. Now don't get me wrong, I have many friends who are Christians as most of you do. However, whenever the aspect of religion arises, my opinion counts for nothing, as they believe that belief in nothing is not only unethical, but totally obscene.

What Is Omniscience?

Many people who claim the existence of an omniscient, omnipotent deity fail to understand what that really means. Sure, they know that omniscient means "all knowing," and omnipotent means "all powerful," but they have not considered the consequences of having such traits. This is what I want to do here, but for now, only with respect to omniscience.

Can you imagine what it would be like to know absolutely everything there is to know in the universe? Can you fathom the idea of knowing everything that ever happened, down to the particle level, in the past, and everything that will happen, down to the particle level, in the future? Probably not. Many use this to say that we could not possibly understand the ways of an omniscient being. Still, though we can't picture ourselves as omniscient, we can certainly think of things that human beings do as a result of not knowing things.
