Book of the Day "A.D. 381"

Image
In A.D. 381, Theodosius, emperor of the eastern Roman empire, issued a decree in which all his subjects were required to subscribe to a belief in the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This edict defined Christian orthodoxy and brought to an end a lively and wide-ranging debate about the nature of God; all other interpretations were now declared heretical. It was the first time in a thousand years of Greco-Roman civilization free thought was unambiguously suppressed.

JAY-Z Steps Up to NFL. "We've Passed the Kneeling Stage!"

Image
JAY-Z Steps Up to NFL. "We've Passed the Kneeling  Stage!" Last year, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter boasted about turning down an opportunity to perform on the Super Bowl halftime show.

“I said no to the Super Bowl. You need me, I don’t need you. Every night we in the end zone, tell the NFL we in stadiums, too..."
He wasn't lying!!!

Now, after suffering from low ratings and failing to get Cardi B and Rihanna to take the stage at Super Bowl LIII, the National Football League is turning to Jay for help.

Recently, the NFL announced a long-term partnership with Roc Nation, Jay's sports and entertainment agency, as the league’s official Live Music Entertainment Strategists. The partnership, which goes into effect at the start of the 2019-20 season, will serve to strengthen community through music and the NFL’s Inspire Change initiative.

"This is bigger than music and sports; it’s about unifying America,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at an intimate press event…

Book of the Day "Deconverted: A Journey from Religion to Reason"

Image
And then Noah loaded the dinosaurs onto the ark...

   Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts.
   Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair.
   Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded. Curiosity is muted. Doubt is frowned upon as a sin.
   And for those who dare to raise a dissenting hand, the threat of Hell looms ominously. A former religious radio host raised in the cradle of Christianity, Seth Andrews battled his own doubts for many years.
   His attempts to reconcile faith and the facts led him to a conclusion previously unthinkable, and this once-true believer ultimately became the founder of one of the most popular atheist commun…

Pastor Confesses he Sexually Abused Underage Girl While Praying and Reciting Bible Verses

Image
Ohio Pastor Cesar Guerrero, considered a prophet by his sheepish followers, has admitted to sexually assaulting an underage girl while praying and reciting Bible verses, saying to the child that she needed to be “cleansed.”


   Pastor Guerrero, of 'Mision Cristiana El Calvario Church' in Sharonville, was arrested Wednesday after he was accused of assaulting a 17-year-old girl who came to him to talk about her previous abuse. He ended up admitting that he used his position as a religious leader to further traumatize the girl.

   An affidavit stated Guerrero is believed to be a “Prophet of God” and as the pastor of his church, used that information to influence a juvenile into believing she needed to be cleansed from being molested as a child. Guerrero then arranged to meet the juvenile alone in his office.

   Guerrero used Bible scripture and prayers to “cleanse” the juvenile while he assaulted her, court documents stated.

   Guerrero only admitted what he did after he was ar…

Catholic Priest Steals Over $100,000 From Church. Won't Face Charges...

Image
Father Oscar Diaz a Catholic priest, allegedly stole 100,000 in cash from catholic church Resurrection Parish in Santa Rosa, California. The theft was only discovered because Diaz was in a car accident, and emergency workers found the money in is car!

  He has not been charged for the crime and most likely wont be.

  Diaz was in a car crash last week. When emergency workers were going through the wreckage, they found more than $18,000 in cash!

  The money was later discovered to be stolen from the church.

  Then things got worse: When law enforcement officials looked into it further, they found another $77,000 in his possession… all apparently taken from the various churches in which he had worked.

   Bishop Robert F. Vasa is in charge of deciding whether charges should be filed against Diaz...
   “This money was associated with Resurrection Parish in Santa Rosa where Father Oscar was pastor,” said Bishop Robert F. Vasa in a news release. “After an initial investigation and several…

Woman Charged With Murder After Dropping Her Baby During Fight

Image
A Georgia mother drops her 3-month-old baby during a fight, and she’s also facing murder charges for his death.    Karen Harrison’s son died at the hospital after Harrison brought him in, telling authorities he had fallen at home.
   However, surveillance footage shows the 26-year-old woman arguing with another woman, Terra Brown in the parking lot of the Thomas Beauty Supply store in Moultrie, 65 miles northeast of Tallahassee, FL.
   In the video, with her son in her arms, Harrison is seen arguing with Brown. Shortly after, the two women get physical resulting in the baby falling to the ground and hitting his head.
   Another woman at the scene is seen running in and picking the child up as Brown continues to hit Harrison.
   It’s unclear what the women were fighting about, and the town’s coroner has yet to determine the baby’s actual cause of death.
   Harrison was charged with felony murder, first- and second-degree cruelty to children, simple battery and affray.
   District Attor…

FREE Audio Book of the Day "Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon"

Image
For all the thousands of books that have been written about religion, few until this one have attempted to examine it scientifically: to ask why - and how - it has shaped so many lives so strongly. Is religion a product of blind evolutionary instinct or rational choice? Is it truly the best way to live a moral life?

   Ranging through biology, history, and psychology, Daniel C. Dennett charts religion's evolution from "wild" folk belief to "domesticated" dogma. Not an anti-religious creed but an unblinking look beneath the veil of orthodoxy, Breaking the Spell will be read and debated by believers and skeptics alike.

First Black Owned Instant Noodles Brand

Image
Ex-Convict Ron Freeman Launches First Black-Owned Instant  Noodles Brand    While in prison, Ron Freeman learned that most prisoners love to eat ramen noodles and even use it as a currency. So upon his release, Ron decided to launch a company called Mama Pat’s Foods and is now known as the first Black-owned instant noodle brand.


   Ron's primary focus was creating a ramen brand that is a lot healthier than what his competitors sell. Ramen is typically high in sodium, and eating too much of it has been linked to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and hypertension.

   So, Ron decided to create an instant ramen product that would be a low-sodium and salt-free alternative, and it has been a huge success!!! To ensure that the packets taste is superb, he uses a secret recipe combination of spices. The available flavors (Lamb Stew, Chicken Fajita, Seafood Gumbo, and Chicken Taco) create a variety of desirable options.

  In 1996, Ron was sentenced to three years in Donovan C…
