The Atheologist

Theology is the study of theism; Atheology is the study of atheism. I am The Atheologist. Why don’t Atheists embrace religion when the vast majority of humans do? Why are Atheists regarded by most of society as thugs, rabble, vermin and generally naughty people. The Atheologist will attempt to seek out the true answers to these and many more questions by using logical assumptions, interviews with people of all faiths and really, really good research. The Atheologist wants to know.

    Kathleen Harris and The Red Sea Pedestrians

    Florida Congresswoman Kathleen Harris recently told the Florida Baptist Witness that – 1) separation of church, state is “a lie”, 2) God and America's founding fathers did not intend the country to be "a nation of secular laws", and 3) "only Christians should be elected to public office in the USA". For some reason, there was quite a hullabaloo. The loudest outcry came from Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat who is Jewish, she told the Orlando Sentinel that she was "disgusted" by Harris's comments.

    The Atheologist is having a hard time understanding why some Jews would have a problem with Ms. Harris’ pro-Christian comments. Could it be possible that this is a form of anti-Christianism? Isn't it the Christians who always remind everyone that an atheist should not "be considered as citizens", and therefore never be elected to public office. Wasn’t it the Christians who fought to have “In God We Trust”, printed on our currency and stamped on our coins? Wasn’t it the Christians who had the words, “under God”, inserted into the pledge of allegiance? And isn’t it the Christians who are trying to have this country return to its Judeo-Christian roots by having for example - the ten commandments displayed in every public space possible? “What part of Judeo- Christian”, are these Jews not seeing? And come to think of it, didn’t God hand off the ten commandments to Moses, who happened to be Jewish himself?

    I mean is the Atheologist the only one who thinks that it is possible Ms. Wasserman Schultz is overreacting just a bit and maybe guily of being a little too pro-Semitic? The Jews have the honor of being God’s chosen people. As far as the Atheologist knows, they have more holidays than any other religion on earth. And we all know that everyone likes a good bagel. Isn’t that enough for them? That is only one of the Atheologist's many Jewish questions.

    P.S. Here's just one example of the many unselfish good deeds that Christians have done for the Jewish people.

    The Kabbalah Cleaning Service

    As many of you have heard, pop diva Madonna, along with husband Guy Ritchie, have been lobbying the British government to use a powerful Kabbalah fluid to clean up radioactive waste.

    The couple, both followers of the Jewish spiritual movement Kabbalah, approached Downing Street, Whitehall and British Nuclear Fuels , promoting an idea on a way to clean up radioactive waste using a "mystical" liquid which has already been tested successfully in a Russian lake. This very special water according to Kabbalah beliefs, “can receive magic healing powers through meditation and the consciousness of sharing”. That sounds very reasonable and logical to the Atheologist. But why would the “Material Girl” limit this magic cleaning solution to only cleaning up radioactive waste.

    Why stop there? The world has so many other pesky problems that also need addressing. The Atheologist can think of a few: How about using it for that cloudy pool water, as a mouthwash for those, ‘bad breath germs’, that mildew problem in the bathroom that you can’t seem to get rid of, cleaning computer keyboards, ring around the collar and our Sicilian friends may be interested in using it to removing those annoying blood stains from the carpeting.

    The Atheologist has a few suggestions on what to name this cleansing wonder. How about, ‘True Blue’ or ‘Like a Prayer’ or so there’s no beating around the bush, ‘Cleaning and Radioactivity de-Actifying Kabbalah Powered Treatment Solution’, or “CRAKPOTS” for short.

    Mel Gibson In Rehab

    Mel Gibson entered a rehab program after his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, his publicist said Monday.
    The Australian-raised actor-director's publicist, Alan Nierob, told AP that Gibson, 50, was in bad shape and very sorry for the alleged bad judgment he made when he allegedly drove his car while he was allegedly drunk.
    But Gibson's alleged outburst, which included a comment that "Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world", has caused public outrage. Gibson already had been accused of anti-Semitism in his movie, The Passion of the Christ. For some, his alleged drunken tirade confirmed the allegations were true.
    But Gibson’s publicist has relayed a second apology from Gibson stating that he never meant for anyone to hear what he had said about the Jews and that goes double for those, “Jews For Jesus”, Hebes - the Christ killers who obviously have mended their ways.

    The Atheologist suspects that being the devout Christian that he is, at least he won't struggle, (like an atheist would), with that part of the 12 steps concerning acceptance of a higher power.
