No gods Sunday.

Welcome to no gods Sunday.

A day to reflect upon a life, well lived I might add, that has nothing to do with paying homage to any god.

With that in mind, lets take a brief look at the people who do believe in a god.
I'm not picky about which god they believe in but, I'm sure there will be one who gets more attention then any of the others.

Let's begin.

The first thing that comes to mind here, and I don't know why, is that this is a prime example of a parent eating it's young.

Think he'll ever be allowed back in that church?

Some times religion can be bad for your health, as this story shows.
Looks like god saved him from the elevator so that he could kill him with a stone statue.

Is this guy serious?
A website, run by a Turkish Islamic Creationist, accuses Darwinists of plotting to take over the world.
And their demanding an apology!
Check it out at,!


Christian creationists aren't the only ones who are delusional.

I'll end with something positive.
A few quotes from the Dalai Lama in his book How to see yourself as you really are.

"While I point out the fundamental parallels between various world religions, I do not advocate a new "world religion." All the different religions of the world are needed to enrich human experience and world civilization."

Also, "Our human minds, with all their variety, need different approaches to peace and happiness. It is just like varieties of food. Certain people find Christianity more appealing; others prefer Buddhism because it does not advocate a creator-everything depends upon your own actions."

Also, "The point is clear: humanity needs all the world's religions to suit varied ways of life, diverse spiritual needs, and inherited national traditions."

Also, "If all religions make the betterment of humanity their main concern, they can work together for world peace."

And finally, "Each religion makes its own distinctive contributions, and each in its own way is suited to the orientation of a particular group of people. The world needs them all."

Unfortunately there are some, actually a lot of, religious groups who believe they are the only "true religion" and that it is their mission to eradicate all of the other religious groups.

These groups do not promote world peace, they only bring violence and suffering to the world.

These groups must change.

If they do not, the may find themselves growing smaller and smaller until they are no more.
