The World By Night and Wee Willie Harris

Posted by Joe Bloe , 01 November 2013 · 7,397 views

I'm probably leaving myself open to ridicule, but I'm going to come right out and say it anyway: one of my all-time favourite movies was "The World By Night" (Mondo di Notte) released in 1960. The International Movie Database refers to it as "this duller-than-dirt travelogue" but I am looking backwards in time and I can still see it through the eyes of a...

Chiasmus

It doesn't matter whether or not you agree with the message of this video,
it is actually rather cleverly done and well worth a look - but you have to
watch it all the way through to get the full effect. It tells the story of a young
man's journey from atheism to Christianity:

The Christmas Story

Posted by Joe Bloe , 16 November 2012 · 2,600 views

At this time of year some Christians start complaining that people have lost the true spirit of Christmas. Big business, they say, has turned it into a money-making racket and the hoi-poloi regard it as just another holiday; an excuse to throw a party and have a good time with not a thought for the baby Jesus lying in his manger. They encourage us to...

Allan Glenn aka WinAce

Information about WinAce is slowly disappearing from the web, so I have decided to record his farewell message on this blog.

I feel sad every time I read it.

The Probability Is (not quite) Zero

Posted by Joe Bloe , 13 September 2012 · 3,835 views

In 1985 the Jehovah Witnesses published a book (“Life – How Did It Get Here?”) which included a chapter heading that asks the question, “Could Life Originate By Chance?” - and the text goes on to suggest that it could not:

“The proteins needed for life have very complex molecules. What is the chance of even a simple protein...

Sell All You Have

Posted by Joe Bloe , 04 September 2012 · 1,235 views

In the bible Jesus says:

Sell everything you have and give to the poor. Luke 18:22


Not surprisingly, the Christians have found a loop hole that enables them to avoid this particular ruling. They point out that Jesus was talking to just one man so the rule applied only him...

The Problem Of Evil

The article, The Problem of Evil, was written by Peter Kreeft, a professor of philosophy at Boston College and The King's College. He is the author of numerous books as well as a popular writer of Christian philosophy, theology and apologetics.

Diabolical Mimicry (Plagiarism In Anticipation)

Posted by Joe Bloe , 08 July 2012 · 2,794 views

Did Jesus really exist, or did a small Jewish sect simply take the basic story told about the pagan gods and adapt it to fit their expectations of a coming messiah? Today the usual Christian response is that Jesus really did exist and Christianity is unique; nothing at all like the pagan religions of the Roman Empire.

But 2,000 years ago it was quite a...

The Goyder Line

Posted by Joe Bloe , 22 June 2012 · 3,203 views

For more than 20 years the fundamentalists have been using Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) to teach their children stuff like this:


  • Man should never trust his own reasoning – his reasoning may be incorrect because man’s reasoning is not God’s reasoning.

If a scientific theory contradicts...

The Death of Judas

Posted by Joe Bloe , 08 March 2012 · 1,220 views

It's getting close to Easter, and I'm reminded of that famous biblical contradiction regarding the death of Judas.

In Matthew 27:5 it is stated that Judas,
"went and hanged himself."

But Acts 1:18 says Judas died when,
"falling headlong, he burst asunder...
