Dennis Prager blames all American ills on atheism

An interesting post. I need to get to posts about atheism eventually. I have one hell of a story to tell!

Why Evolution Is True

Dennis Prager is a wealthy conservative author, speaker, and broadcaster, who also runs a website, Prager University, featuring short “instructional” videos. For some reason I don’t understand, he manages to lure some big names to do those videos, including George Will and (as I recall) Ayaan Hirsi Ali. I suspect the $ are a lure. The videos are conservative, pro-captialism, pro-religion (so long as it’s not Islam), and pro-free-market. I avoid the site.

Last Tuesday, Prager jumped the shark, publishing on his website a screed called “How is the Godless West Working Out?” As you might guess, he thinks it isn’t; in fact, he thinks that godlessness will doom us to perdition.  Prager’s screed sounds for all the world like the ravings of Pat Robertson. If you were attracted to Prager University before, have a look at these excerpts:

And I will stand here in my sneakers and My Superman Tshirt, holding my Garbage can lid

I’ll stop them

When I was a paladin of Charlemagne

When I carried the body of Alexander back to His rest

When I defended Troy from ravage and ruin

When I knocked on your door for the…

A Partnership Of Kinds

I appreciated this post. I live a single life, but this gives me hope for a successful relationship in the future. Thank you!

Sunken Thought

Over the years my husband and I have literally taken turns taking care of each other and our individual needs to the best of our abilities. Before we were even married, we often found ourselves taking care of the other. There were times when he needed me desperately like one night before we were married, before we were even engaged and had gone for a jog for fun. Out of the blue he started having hives pop up out of no where. We managed to make it home in time enough before it got too bad and I made him take a long soak in some Aveeno colloidal oatmeal skin protectant bath treatment while forcing him to take benadryl. Within minutes the reaction faded away and he was fine. Disaster was averted.

There are times where he has taken care of me, like when I had managed to catch a…
