The Culture Shock They Never Mention

On September 7, 2021, I was working as a legal asistant and legislative aide for state legislator and in this capacity I recieved texts and a call from someone who was supposedly his client. He claimed to be a schizophrenic bipolar person in the Al Canon jail on a contraband phone. It soon devolved intoContinue reading “The Culture Shock They Never Mention”

On Contemporary Religious Art

I write lots of religious art, mostly in the form of poetry. As anti-modernist as my sentiments have been expressed on this blog as, it would not surprise one to surmise that I hold contemporary religious art in very low regard. Recently, there was something called the “Martyrs” exhibition at Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London.Continue reading “On Contemporary Religious Art”

Britney Spears’ New Atheism

As a religious polemicist, I felt I could contribute something here. Now, my views on Britney Spears, like most of Hollywood, aren’t terribly great since they bend to market pressures and sell whatever unhealthy intellectual junk food the public so desires. Britney’s reasons for conversion to atheism were a bit, philosophically, weak and betrayed anContinue reading “Britney Spears’ New Atheism”

Martyrdom, Love, and Fear

In my recent article “Flirting on the Spectrum”, I write about how awkwardness can lead to false red flags and how the world being at DEFCON ONE prevents romance. I have never had that type of fear and it isn’t just because I’m male but because I am not that afraid of death or harmContinue reading “Martyrdom, Love, and Fear”

God & The Hegelian Dialectic

Unlike most of the major enlightenment philosophers, Hegel was a deeply Christian man. His theory on the progression of society through ideas which is the dominant and I, believe, true description of social progress. The presence of God in history is a topic I would deign not cover as it ventures out of the realmContinue reading “God & The Hegelian Dialectic”

The Christianity After Liberalism

Many believed that Christianity (and religion) would die in the West but that is not happening. That said, the Christianity that is emerging is not the same Christianity that came into liberalism or even the most recent stages of liberalism. Neither version of Christianity had much to do with the message or tradition founded inContinue reading “The Christianity After Liberalism”

The Religious Left: Christian versus Buddhist Socialism

                Religion and politics are inseparable because religion is the underlying foundation behind everyone’s ethical philosophy and within the definition of religion I include secular religions like secular humanism which is often practiced through Unitarian or Quaker services. For this piece, I will focus on two religions as they are the two theistic religions withContinue reading “The Religious Left: Christian versus Buddhist Socialism”

Making Heaven the Next Nirvana: Theories on Apologetics and Aesthetics

For many decades, the Christian religion has attempted, with some but not enough success, to make themselves appealing through modes such as becoming contemporary, adopting the garb and music of the cool kids, and the like. Yet, they fail to address the principal reason younger generations are leaving religion. Simply, they don’t believe in it.Continue reading “Making Heaven the Next Nirvana: Theories on Apologetics and Aesthetics”

Why I’m Not a Heathen: Most Aspies are Atheists so Why am I not?

Most aspies are atheists and this is attributed to our logical and rational worldview. Yet, I would counter that the reason most aspies don’t believe in God is more a matter of disposition than logic. As it says in my info, I am of the minority of aspies that is extroverted and while I doContinue reading “Why I’m Not a Heathen: Most Aspies are Atheists so Why am I not?”
