Eclectic Lip: The losers of Superbowl XLVIII will be…

Religious moderates. Here’s my reasoning. After the game, someone on the winning team, exulting ecstatically, will say “God was on our side” or words to that effect. It’s as sure as a post-touchdown two-point conversion attempt late in the fourth quarter, if the team is still down by a pair. This will lead humorists and ...

Eclectic Lip: Putting the “X” back in Xmas

Xtians began using “Xmas” 500 years ago, since in Greek, X is the “Ch” in Christ Around the holidays, some people (not to name names or anything) urge modern society to put the “Christ” back in Christmas. There’s much to criticize about the hollow vacuousness of consumer culture, after all. Most of us can buy ...

Trashy's World: Wow. This guy is a piece of work!

Conservatives. Ah. Some of them never cease to amaze me. Take this guy for example. I guess, as one of those infidel atheists (or I.A’s, as we like to be called) I should thank him?

And perhaps even more hypocritical.  There’s no greater example of this than those vocal opponents of religion who criticize Christmas but in just a few months time celebrate St.Patrick’s Day and other religious holidays with unrivaled enthusiasm. St.Patrick’s Day is of course associated with ...

Thank gawd, finally a new cult leader was appointed in Italy by an elite cabal during a secret backroom ritual. This one is from Argentina. I guess that country deserves it, considering they just lost the recent vote on the status of the Falkland Islands. Yay, does this mean the end of the Olympic-style news ...

This is a cover version by Jock Mackay (with a few updated lyrics) of the underrated and relatively unknown John Lennon song “Serve Yourself”, which is a scathing attack on organized religion. Lennon wrote and recorded the song in 1980, several months before he was assassinated by a stalker with a handgun. The recording wasn’t ...

Bollocks to Christmas! I have a love-hate relationship with Christmas. What I love: *Getting a few days off work. *Having a somewhat lighter workload on the days surrounding the holidays. *Spending time with family and friends who I don’t get a chance to see very often. *Good food (especially the home-made kind) and drink. *Lights ...
