The Infidel’s Guide to Islam (2 of 3) — The Anatomy of Jihad

October 24, 2011 Leave a comment

According to the Qur’an, there’s no such thing as a Muslim Extremist.

Xenocrates

Islam will Dominate The World

This is the true intention of Islam. Anything else is a pacifist lie.

I’ve always wondered if Muhammad were still alive, if he would have wept over what all these modern day Islamic governments have done to their people and how they may have misread, misinterpreted or utterly misconstrued his teachings. He originally set out to unify all Arabia. They in turn invented Sharia law and justification for flying passenger jets into office buildings. Now western governments have tried to appease Islamic moderates by suggesting that Islam has no political agenda. Take a long hard look at the picture above. This is far from the truth.

Deus Ex Machina: How man created God

July 24, 2011 Leave a comment

God is nothing more than a machination of human narcissism.

Xenocrates

Deus ex machina — Man created God

Have you ever wondered why is it that humans refer to God using male pronouns? Why does God seem to have the emotions of a jealous boyfriend with insecurities? If we are guided by God’s “hand”, then does it mean that he also has feet? Why is it that our God speaks in old English? Why is it that every portrait of Jesus we know of make him look like a white skinned blue eyed homosexual? If the universe is so large, why would God love just us as opposed to some alien civilization? The answer to these questions is the same: Because we made god up.

Tough Questions Christians Fear

One who has tough questions should never ask them of those who fear the answers.

The Ultimate Bible Study - Me vs. The Elders

Taking my elders to task on tough Bible questions.

Have you ever had one of those moments growing up when you were presented with an idea that you immediately accepted, but deep in the recesses of your mind, something didn’t add up? That was my entire childhood really. That’s basically how I grew up with religion. This post is for all the younger folks out there who have questions they are either afraid to ask or were given circular, useless answers. Read on to see what all your church elders were so afraid of.

A Skeptic’s Guide To Bible Prophecy

November 21, 2010 46 comments

We tend see whatever we want to see whenever there is nothing else to see.

Xenocrates

I had a, revelation recently. It came to me while I was trying to understand various people’s motivation for reinterpreting The Book of Revelation. As I talked to different pastors, teachers and philosophers over the past three months, it became more and more apparent to me that what we think we understand from the book is not what is actually in the book as much as what is in their hearts. There is a difference between seeking the truth and trying to invent it.

The Root of All Evil

October 22, 2010 36 comments

We are only capable of good because we are intrinsically evil.

Xenocrates

What is evil? The first thing that comes to the mind of many is the wanton and indiscriminate destruction of life by one of another. But evil is far more systemic than that. In fact, when the Bible asserts that the love of money is the root of all evil, it is being fatuously narrow minded. The love of money is merely a coefficient. The root of all evil is much, much deeper than that.

When logical explanations won’t suffice

March 18, 2010 4 comments

“Truly appreciating religion requires a mind less bound by the parameters of logical congruity.”

Xenocrates

Really?

What if I said that I could offer a logical explanation for everything that religion seems to bind under a shroud of mystery? Would you believe it? I bet, that so long as one is religious, that even the most well educated person out there would not. There is a very good reason for that and I’m about to explain why.

Morality vs. Religion

March 7, 2010 20 comments

“Morality and religion exist as mutually exclusive concepts as one does not automatically predicate the other.”

Xenocrates

Taking an oath on the Bible is something of a conflict of interest – considering what’s written in it.

When asked about why religion is necessary, one of the common answers most people will probably tell you (even if they aren’t believers) is that religion provides a framework for moral behaviour. So allow me to permanently fix that problem by blowing this fatuous assumption out of the water once and for all.
