Spiffy Ehward

img_6875The Spiffy Ehwards are THE most highly sought after and prestigious Ehward to be found on the Interwebs. You know this to be true because you just read that it is true.

It comes with no cash award or any other benefits beyond bragging rights, but that is more valuable than any amount of money or silly statue. Winners are encouraged to put it on their resumes as it will almost certainly make you a more appealing candidate to prospective employers.

Nah, just kidding. It’s my unique (& admittedly dorky) way of giving a shout out to people I find amazing. I used to do extensive #FF lists on Twitter but they became so clogged with amazing people that I was spamming the Cultists timelines with 40+ #FF lists. It became unsustainable for me and annoying for many of you. I’d rather draw attention to one specific person at a time. I think it is more personal and meaningful and really forces me to think about who the truly Top Notch Cultists are.

An open letter to Jesus Christ

jesus-christ-from-hagia-sophia

Today’s post is inspired by a Twitter thread I did last month. if you want to read it, start here.

Today, I’ve written an open letter to Jesus since he has never gotten back to any of my prayers, yet people keep insisting he’s interested in a “personal relationship” with me.

I’d ask you share this with your friends and family so that hopefully someone that knows him can send him the link.

Can a Christian be an atheist?

atheism-2-black-on-whiteTo follow up on my last post, Can a Hindu be an atheist?, I’m going to
explore the idea of whether an atheist can also be a Christian. It seems Greta Vosper feels its possible.

To Quote Greta:

“God is a metaphor for goodness and love lived out with compassion and justice, no more and no less.” – Greta Vosper

Can a Hindu be an atheist?

What is the first thing you think about when you think about Hinduism?

If you are anything like I was a couple years ago, you’d think, “A polytheistic Religion with millions of gods.”

If you are anything like I was a couple years ago, you’d only be sort of right.
I used to use the Memecard below a lot on Twitter:

Teaching methods


How Evolution Works

This video, embedded above, was a really cool way to explain evolution. This post isn’t so much about evolution itself as it is, per the title, about teaching methods. I personally find animations such as this one to be a highly effective method of conveying information, especially ones that have the potential for controversy.

Homeschool org shut down

Christian Home School organization Wisdom Home School was recently shut down by the Alberta Department of Education for apparent financial irregularities. This is, to me, good news. As many of you know, we homeschool our two oldest kids (3rd goes to play school, might go to public school, 4th is TBD), but we strive for a secular education. We aim to ensure they will be able to compete with other kind devices their age.

Religion harms children

Sadly, here I am discussing yet another story of a person’s religious belief harming a child. An evangelical Christian woman beat her son with a coat hanger leaving 36 vicious bruises. There’s a graphic image of the child’s back in the linked story.

I know not every child abuser does it for religious reasons, some are just abusive assholes, nor are all religious people child abusers. However, that doesn’t excuse or change the fact that certain religious beliefs are undoubtedly the reason behind some child abuse. Whataboutery won’t change this.
