Awkward Moments (Not Found In Your Average) Children's Bible - Vol. 2: Don't blame us - it's in the Bible! (Volume 2)

STILL NOT FOR KIDS! If you thought our first bestseller was inappropriate for kids, this volume is barely appropriate for adults! More incest, genocide, talking animals, wrestling matches, martyrs, abortion, magic, homosexuality and selficide! What would Jesus do? You might be surprised what His own family thought of Him!
From the opening foreword by Evangelical pastor, author, and professor Dan Kimball (of Vintage Faith Church), to the challenging commentaries in the second half of the book, Awkward Moments Children's Bible is much more than an irreverent book for your coffee table! Readers of all faiths will find themselves laughing out loud while being encouraged to think about the Bible in a new way.

Let’s be honest - there are some things in the Good Book that are just... awkward! There are verses we'd like to forget or that have been changed throughout the centuries. There are many verses you’ve never heard before in church, let alone seen in your average children’s Bible! Not to mention the verses that have been added over the centuries!

Most people were raised in the faith chosen by their family. Young children learn a few Bible stories taken out of context and accept them without question. (On what basis could they possibly question their parents or church leaders?) After decades of repetition and tradition, it's understandable that we might put our beliefs on auto-pilot and just nod as a pastor repeats the verses and ideas that are already familiar and comfortable to us. It's no wonder that recent studies show an incredible lack of Biblical knowledge among Christians - 55% unable to even name the four Gospels of the New Testament - the very foundation of Christianity!

The Goal? Awkward Moments encourages readers to really understand what is in their Bibles and think for themselves about the context of Biblical teaching. The 32 color illustrations and included commentaries will likely challenge some readers to reflect on how religion continues to shape the lives and culture of future generations. If readers happen to laugh out loud in the mean time - it’s just an added bonus!

Skeptical about a verse? Crack open your favorite Bible and read along to share the Good News with friends!

Religion is a Mental Illness Dr Sapolsky
Dr Sapolsky explores schizophrenia to see if there is any hidden adaptive advantage in the condition as there are with so many other genetic disorders. Disorders where the full maladapted trait is extremely harmful to the individual but where a lower partial level of the same trait clearly has adaptive benefits.
Harvard psychiatrists undertook an extensive study of over 10 000 families in Denmark, speaking with the largest number of schizophrenics and their families ever, and over the period of a decade they noticed something quite remarkable. The family members, the biological relatives of the schizophrenics displayed a very high incidence of schizotypal characteristic behaviour, differing from the full schizophrenia where life is at times impossible, these characters instead were withdrawn and had a strong tendency towards metamagical thinking.
They were the type of characters to be obsessed with science fiction fantasy or new age beliefs that were so extreme they took things to another level, taking things to be very literal. Typically the religiously leaning schizotypal accepts the seven day creation story, not as metaphorical, but as fact. The same with the resurrection, not symbolic of continued life or anything, it actually happened. Schizotypal personality traits as a mild form of schizophrenia is a recognised diagnosis.
Robert Raven an anthropologist first highlighted this schizotypalism with the shamans and witch doctors, medicine men and women of so called primitive civilizations and religious beliefs. Extreme behaviour, speaking to the dead, talking in tongues and all the other strange and not so wonderful behaviours attached to religion. The characters with the full blown schizophrenia, provided the balance was right, were and are highly regarded members of society.
I think you can see where this is leading, from the pages of the National Geographic magazine to our own societies and those who invented theology were schizotypal/schizophrenic personalities. The main tenets of religion are very closely related to obsessive compulsive disorders, rituals, cleanliness. It's a superb lecture and very interesting.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJM5mipwebw

Twenty years ago today, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, 'The Atheist' and 'America's Most Hated Woman' was brutally murdered along with her son and granddaughter by an employee she had sacked from the atheist center.
In 1963 Madalyn Murray O'Hair successfully removed prayer recitation and Bible reading from US public schools and was arguably the first antitheist.
She once had to go on the run after allegedly assaulting five Baltimore police officers who had come to collect a young lady sheltering with Madalyn after escaping a life of abuse - now that's fucking pro-active!
In an interview with Playboy Magazine, she said she would like to be remembered with three words - atheist anarchist woman.

Okay, I'll say it.
While storms and rain of biblical proportions at the Grand Mosque in Mecca were collapsing cranes and killing more than one-hundred people - where the fuck was Allah?

Have you ever watched Frosty the Snowman? I have, and I always build a snowman every winter and wish on every single star in the sky that he'll come to life because I know in my  heart that magic is real. Or maybe the Tooth Fairy will finally make him real for me, I keep leaving notes to her with my little sister's teeth under her pillow.

If people are calling for the arrest of Netanyahu for crimes against humanity, shouldn't that also include, Ratzinger, Bush. Blair, Blunkett, Cheney and that Rice woman?
Benjamin Netanyahu is to hold talks in London this September. Under international law he should be arrested for war crimes upon arrival in the U.K for the massacre of over 2000 civilians in 2014

Judge Judy - "I don't care how the word of god applies here - this is a courtroom, not a church".
And something about a 9 000 year old spruce tree.

Introduction

What a person believes isn't really an issue or any other person's business. It's more what a person does with their belief which makes it relevant by infringing upon another in anyway. The rights of an individual to practice their faith ends where the rights of another to not be encroached upon begin.

Mission: 
Non violently oppose religious doctrine which promotes hate, prejudice, non free thinking and where it causes harm. Not singling out any particular faith. Where the faith causes harm no longer can people of sense and reason stand by and be perceived to respect their dogma through this perceived unspoken agreement to not speak out for fear of causing offense. There is nothing we could say or do to come close to the offense the doctrines of faith create to those of us with any sense of decency, fairness and love of all humanity. Ironically unlike the many conditions the faiths place upon their acceptance of certain people and groups our respect for humanity is unconditional beyond neither hurting another or depriving another. If it harms none then do as you will.

Islam and Judaism are seen as minority groups in the West and as racist far right organisations hide behind the banner of anti-religion. We have and want no association with such groups and do all that is physically possible to prevent such groups or their members using our page as a vehicle for their hate.
