10 Commandments Under Fire
October 11, 2018 by

4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

This is a problem. Every major pro sport plays on Sunday. God doesn’t want to mess with the NFL.

And Christian women, look closely at this commandment and notice who doesn’t get a day off… YOU!

Cattle get the Sabbath off. Strangers within thy gates (there are plenty of these in my neighborhood) get the Sabbath off. Slaves? Yep. (and this is pre-OSHA)
Women? Sorry. No.

One more thing here. Why does the all-powerful creator of the universe need rest? Does he get tired after a long week of whipping up matter and energy? Is he out of breath or have a stitch in his side? If you are ALL-powerful, you are in tremendous shape. Ironman triathletes don’t have to rest when they walk up a flight of stairs. Apparently God does.

Is this memory lapse? Masochism?
Why, people? Why?

It’s always a little embarrassing to miss an important birthday or anniversary, and I confess that I’ve been especially busy over the past month and overlooked an important date. That date was about a month ago, when The History Channel suffered one of the highest-profile blows to its credibility in, well, the history of the …

Massimo Polidoro: The Ghosts of the Coliseum
October 27, 2017 by

Okay, so what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the term “fake news”? The ancient Romans of course! Wow, that was so not fair of me. Actually, the Romans have been the subject of historical fake news for millennia (I assume as much as any other empire), and today we heard …
