Cliche’ Day

Posted by JD on July 3, 2008

I’m probably preaching to the choir here, but

If you believe that it’s mind over matter and

Faith takes up where reason gives out, then remember

Ignorance is bliss only if reason is

Out of sight, out of mind.

Only God knows why

God works in mysterious ways, but if you ask me,

It’s the blind leading the blind.

It stands to reason that I have

High hopes of people

giving up the ghost.

I’ll be damned because there is

No way on God’s green earth that He is

Out of this world.

Christians may be on cloud nine, but

The sky’s the limit when it comes to

Pie in the sky gods.

You’ve got your head in the clouds and it

Stinks to high Heaven.

For if God exists, that’ll be the day

it’s Hell on Earth.

It’ll be a cold day in Hell when we live by

The Gospel Truth.

It’s ugly as sin.

Read it and weep.

The Devil is in the details.

Speak of the Devil, I’ll play

Devil’s advocate for a minute.

If your pennies from Heaven make you

Holier than thou, then here’s

My two cents:

A fool and his money are soon parted.

Beggars can’t be choosers.

All beggars teach that others should give.

And if time is money

And if money is the root of all evil,

Then there will still be Hell to pay.

I say you should count your blessings

Because shit happens.

Live and learn.

It’s now or never.

And it’s better late than never.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste and we’re all just

A stone’s throw away

From buying the farm.

Rock the boat.

Even if you’ve already jumped on the bandwagon

It’s not too late to turn the other cheek.

If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would you?

When push comes to shove,

Time will tell (if we stand the test of time).

As reason slowly replaces God, it’s out with the old and in with the new.

Hopefully it will be all’s well that ends well.

That would be music to my ears.

By the way, Happy 4th (a tad early)!

I’m a poet and you know it

Posted by JD on June 17, 2008

Onward Christian soldiers trod

Always with a nod to God

Whilst called a clod and nimrod

By many at odds with God

And yet you can bet

There’s more rhyme and reason

To tornado season

That chimes with the heathens

Than just wishful heavens

Because if God is Good

And Evil is most Vile

God knows He could and should

End the Devil’s damned smile

Somehow I know now

We believe to deceive

The bereaved who all grieve

For when we bleed we need

To know God’s ways indeed

Free Will is not Just Cause

Just because God knows all

His immutable laws

Predetermine our fall

The First Ever Freethought Fort Wayne Contest!

Posted by JD on April 12, 2008

I noticed no one else has posted a contest yet here, so I get to be the first! I plan on giving a small token to the winner, but I don’t know what it will be yet. Bragging rights come along with it.

I got this idea from the evangelicalatheist, so he deserves some of the credit. I think he deleted the original contest, but luckily I write down most everything. This is a Haiku contest. The following are some of my entries in his contest. The only rule is that it needs to revolve around religion, atheism, science or philosophy. That leaves it pretty wide open. I will be the final judge (bribes accepted), but I want you guys and gals to tell me which ones you think are the best. I will announce the winner next weekend so get crackin’ and have fun!

My examples:

Bush chokes on pretzel

Atheists briefly wonder:

Might there be a God?

Critical of cults?

Not critical of your faith?



The Spanish Inquisition

Ignorance is bliss?

Yawning brings demon

Sneezes exorcise demon

Bless you! Body cleansed.

The root of evil?

Money given to churches

to uproot evil

The Old Testament

was just called The Testament

before the new one

Apologist in

missionary position

uses bible belt

From Adam and Eve

to a virgin that conceives

why should I believe?

Hitler had one nut.

Testicular fortitude

was not his strong suit
