Yep. It's the Day of the Dead (which is on both November 1st and 2nd apparently). So, in the spirit of necromancy, I call upon the lost, the damned, and the forgotten: old blog posts (yippee).
The Stalin/Mao/Pol Pot Gambit: Showing this particular gem to be the disingenuous turd that it really is.
Acceptance: Warning: Poetry.
Building a Better Morality: Ten Commandments Revised : Where I go all George Carlin on the Ten Commandments' ass. And also point out why it is a crappy source for morality and the laws for our country.
Voting: The S & M Way: Article in which I diagnose a quarter of the country with a psychological disorder.
Is God Necessary for Morality -or- Incredibly Retarded Question: It really is a stupid question.
Pacifism: Cheers or Jeers: Where I take a long, hard look at myself and admit that self-defense might be a necessity. Still traumatized.
Feeding a Dead Horse: Pascal's Roulette: Trying to make Pascal's Wager work while encompassing a broad number of theological possibilities. Not pretty.
Free Will and Omniscience: It's a contradiction, and wikipedia's presented arguments against that contradiction throw a portion of God's aspects out the window. That saved some time.
On Truth, truth, truf, and TROOF: a wee bit of fun with fundies' favorite capitalized noun describing a vague concept.
Well, that's enough rotted corpses to decorate my window sill this year around.
