Film Review: Creation (Charles Darwin)

Written by

I was fortunate enough to be given a preview of the new film titled 'Creation' with Jennifer Connelly and if you want to watch it and don't want to read my thoughts on it until after you do, then stop reading now. Otherwise, read on....

Man beaten to death by his religious family

Written by

David Makoeya, a 61-year-old man from the small village of Makweya, Limpopo province wanted to watch the World Cup. The rest of his family wanted to watch a religious program, a 'gospel show' instead. They fought over the remote control and eventually, his 68-year-old wife, his 36-year-old son Colin and his 23-year-old daughter Lebogang, killed him. They banged his head against the wall.

It is ironic isn't. Religion, in this case Christianity, has a commandment that says thou shalt not kill. Yet, passion for it has made many people kill.

Queensland Schools can now teach Creationism

Written by

For many of those who still deny the ever-strengthening influence of religion in Australia, arguing that maybe if we ignore religion, it will go away, perhaps they would be alarmed to know that Queensland State Schools will soon be teaching Creationism / Intelligent Design in their classrooms.

How can Australia begin to influence the world when it is allowing its children to be brain-washed with such baseless, simplistic answers to humanity's biggest questions? We are living in 2010 and all the evidences we have discovered that can explain much about our existence, amounts to nothing if the knowledge of those who have gone before us are not passed on to the next generation.

Further, in a multi-cultural society, why should tax payers money be used to favour one branch of religion by teaching only a Judeo-Christian explanation of who we are and why we are here? There are Buddhists, Muslim, Aboriginal versions too? What benefit is this for them? Our public education system needs to remain secular. Tax payer's money are supposed to benefit everybody... not just the Christians.

God not to blame for GFC: Stevens

Written by

"There is a God; this is worth checking out," says Glenn Stevens, governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia.But God may not be omnipotent, for God was not responsible for the Global Financial Crisis, Mr Stevens told a Wesley Mission breakfast today. (Source)

PERSONAL COMMENT:

Is this news is it? I cannot believe that a major newspaper deems it newsworthy to report someone providing a silly answer to a silly question.

No, God is not to be blamed for anything because he does not exist. The GFC happened because of the maliciousness of sellers repackaging toxic assets to sell to ignorant buyers while regulators and quality assurers failed to do what they've been set in place to do. If we are patient and are willing to take the time to understand the world, we can find answers that actually do make sense. When we blame or attribute things to gods, human beings fail to take responsibility for their own shortcomings.
