The Bible had Good News. The Holy Atheist has Even Better News – “None of you are going to Hell.”
Welcome to The Holy Atheist, a place where it’s impolite to NOT criticize religion. Please join me as I blog, podcast and rant in the search of the truth.
My main weapon is humor, for you can’t laugh and totally disagree with something at the same time. On the other hand, it’s not my desire to mock, or belittle. I merely observe, and follow things to their logical conclusion. If the end result is humor, it’s not my fault someone has chosen a belief system which can be boiled down to a joke. Notice you can’t make fun of what physicists believe.
…Atheism isn’t an answer, it merely permits the question.
Before I became a comedian and a sitcom writer, I spent the latter half of my twenties in the Himalayas, studying philosophy and meditation under the guidance of a Guru. Part of what I would like to examine is what is good about religion. What is the purpose of life?
Atheists can have purpose, too. And even if there were a creator, why should I permit it to dictate my purpose? I’m not Pinocchio. Anyway, I intend this site to be more than a place where people can bond over what they don’t believe in.
And along the way, I hope we can share a laugh. Speaking of which, there are no joke in the Bible…so where do we get humor from?
This is the kind of stuff I wonder about. I can’t help it. …Like, what does God do with all those foreskins? …And what the hell happened to Hell? No one talks about it any more. …Is there a difference between blind faith and regular faith? …Man makes plans and God laughs. I understand God doesn’t have to help, but does He have to laugh?
These questions, and many more, are raised, and sometimes answered…by the Holy Atheist.
