Religion can appear to generate a caring community environment, like an extended family. It’s impressive – as long as you tow the party line. But it can all change in a heatbeat, when you find yourself no longer in the “in group.”
This is a video response to Earl Portland’s video “Imagine a world without religion.”
Why do bullies bully? Why do trolls troll? How should we respond effectively to their antagonism?
When should we forgive an offence – always? Is that possible? Is it even desirable? A complex topic.
Concluding my debate with an Evangelical Christian (YouTube user Matthew4Nineteen). Can you have meaningful morals without relying upon divine revelation to define right and wrong objectively for the human race?
Christians often accuse occultists of brainwashing, animal sacrifice, human sacrifice, sexual molestation of children, ritualistic child abuse. When you consider the facts on both sides, this becomes the ultimate boomerang.
Do Christians believe in the judgement of God, or are they kidding themselves? I put it to the test.
Some deep thoughts about consciousness, the I-feeling. What is it? Does it survive death? Did it have a pre-existence? Do we have individual souls, or are we all one?
Who’s right – Protestants or Catholics? Let’s look beyond all the sectarianism to the first centuries of Christianity’s existence.
My response to a user who asks: “Would I be able to subconsciously change my sexual orientation to straight from gay? The reason I want to change is because I don’t want to be gay. I hate the fact of being gay! As you have said in previous videos, the power of the subconscious mind is unbelievable? So do you think it’s possible?”
Christianity is an ego trip. This is proven by the attitudes and actions of Christians, as they attempt to force their views on others and indulge in ideas that allow them to view the universe as something that revolves around their life.
What causes our most powerful instinct, survival, to backfire?
If I say that something is evil, but another says it is good, how can I say that I am right and the other person is wrong, in the absence of a higher power that defines good and evil for us?
My thoughts on suicide, by request …
On Friday 25 March I was invited to be the guest on the Blog Talk Radio show Indigo Children Radio. The general theme was “critical thinking.” Over a period of one hour forty-five minutes, we talked about religion, atheism, philosophy, the nature of “God,” consciousness, psionics, the JREF million dollar challenge, UFOs, modern gurus, and more.

Traditionally, a cult is a localised phenomenon, operating from a physical meeting place or private compound (such as David Koresh and the Branch Davidians of Waco, Texas). But the internet changes all that. Real life has been replaced with the “virtual reality” environment of the net, and local influence replaced with global. With this in mind, what are we to make of David Icke or the Zeitgeist Movement?
