Evangelist produces ‘Real Housewives of the Bible’ DVD

By Liane Membis, CNN

There’s a new set of housewives on the block.

These women aren’t whining about fashion faux pas and socialite misgivings. Their stories are cast somewhere between the books of Genesis and Revelation.

Ty Adams, a web-based evangelist and author, is producing “The Real Housewives of the Bible,” a two-part DVD series that tracks six women dealing with the ups and downs of marriage as they strive to be good wives.

Adams said that “outrageous reality shows” like Bravo’s “The Real Housewives” series and VH1’s “Basketball Wives” inspired her to create a more wholesome version of the franchise.

“I was frustrated with what I was seeing,” she said. “A lot of society is looking towards programming to educate them on relationships and these shows haven’t effectively done that.”

“They have ruined and tainted our ability to secure good relationships and to make women into good wives,” said Adams, who is based in Detroit.

Adams has provided Christian relationship advice for nearly ten years, since she founded a production company called Heaven Enterprises in 2002. She’s the author of Single, Saved and Having Sex, has produced religious DVDs and plays and offers sex and relationship advice through a web-based column called “Ask Ty.”

Adams says the goal of her “Real Housewives” DVD, due out later this month, is helping women juxtapose real-life issues with Christian teaching. She says that teaching includes women’s obligation to attempt to sustain relationships that have endured extra-marital affairs and other hardships.

“Because we live in a media-driven society, telling these age-old stories of adultery, loneliness and longing through entertainment helps women relate,” Adams said.

Each character on the show represents a different woman from the Bible. A character based on the biblical Sarah struggles with infertility. (The biblical Sarah was barren until she reached old age).

Gold-digging women are likened to Delilah from the Book of Judges, who seduced and deceived Samson - who'd fallen in love with her - through repetitious requests.

And the show features plenty of Jezebels.

“Many single women can get a man but they can’t keep a man,” Adams said. “So many singles have been in girlfriend status for so long that they only understand that mentality. They don’t know what it takes to be a good wife in order to sustain a relationship and some parts of society promotes that.”

    Isn't that the Bravo logo? if so, Bravo will most likely sue them for using the name "The Real Housewives" and the logo.

    Not only was Delilah kinda treacherous to her guy (Sampson), she compounded it by taking advantage of a man who was clearly mentally handicapped (again, Sampson).

      "clearly mentally handicapped"

      Everyone who follows the bible and actually believes it is the word of a being who doesn't actually exist.

      If I had imaginary friends who only I could see and hear, you would think I was crazy. But once I start talking about how I spent the day with jesus - all the sudden things are seen differently.

      Careful with the us of the word "you" there. I'm an atheist, and reasonably vocal about it on these boards. I would not, however, classify all theists as bring mentally handicapped.

      In this case, though, I feel pretty justified in applying the term to Sampson. After all, on three or four separate occasions Delilah asked him to tell her his weakness, and each time he just made up something. Each time, he was attacked within a day or two by men trying to use the exact "weakness" against him that he had just made up to tell Delilah. Rather than figuring out the rather obvious pattern here, in the end he still goes ahead and tells her his true weakness.

      Not to mention that his first wife had caused him to lose a bet by doing the exact same thing!

      Mentally handicapped? Men can learn a lot from this story. Everything in the Bible serves to make us better if we choose to seek its truth for us (including atheists). Poor att itude from the beginning to label him such. Those who open the Bible with a poor att itude will find exactly what they are looking for just as those who seek in truth will find truth. Sampson’s problem was that he was easily smitten by women. He quickly forgot the truths God clearly conveyed to him because of his uncontrolled lust. Now if you wish to label everyone that cannot say no to se xu desires mentally handicapped then we do live in a crazy world indeed.

      @Fred
      You nailed the point of that story on the head.
      The problem is the number of people who take the bible literally and will attack others who don't interpret the minutiae of teh Fable of The Man With Magic Hair in the same way they do.

      The stories in the Bible are morality tales, many of them still surprisingly relevant after 2000 years – but they are no more true than Aesop's fables.

      Fred,

      I admit that there was a certain amount of tongue-in-cheek in identifying Sampson as mentally challenged. However, it's not like he's portrayed as an otherwise brilliant man who happens to make bad judgments when presented with the opportunity to get laid. His defining characteristic is his ability to fly into a supernaturally fueled rages and start killing people by the boatload. This is not a character that the average reader feels compelled to identify with. Yes, the message about not letting yourself be blinded by lust is there, but it's packaged in such a way that anyone not predisposed by religious affiliation to see Sampson as "the good guy" is likely to overlook it as being relevant to themselves.

      Doc Vestibule,
      Very different from a fable. The Bible is the story of God redeeming a people for himself. Generation after generation we see human failure override the way God has set for these chosen people of the Old Testament. In the New Testament those not previously chosen are given the gift of life together with easy to understand examples of how to follow the ways of God. Well, Christians have now had 2,000 years of proven failure to follow a simple plan. End result for Christians and Jews we just can’t get our act together on our own. So God himself takes care of the things only God can do (redeem lost peoples) and the people do what they are able. There are deep and consistent truths that run through the entire Bible. These consistent truths remain true today and we are all part of peoples in a generational journey. Those were real people just as you and I are real. Abraham was real just as Jacob …yadda yadda. We know this from the meticulous genealogy records that were kept. Now your obituary (or life story as computer programmer) may not be totally accurate or make sense to Abraham nevertheless you were both very much alive at one time.

      @Fred
      You mean the geneologies that show people living to be a thousand years old?
      Or how a 500 year old man and his immediate family repopulated the entire human race without any inbreeding problems?

    • fred

      Civiloutside,
      You are correct in that one not predisposed to religion has a different take on this. Lo and behold he was a judge of Israel for 20 years with all his problems. Good thing congressional approval was not required when he was made a judge.

      July 5, 2011 at 3:00 pm |
    • fred

      DocVestibule,
      I started with family line of Abraham and Jacob in the genealogy of the story about Gods chosen people and you went to a prior period much before that. Seek and you shall find is one of those truths from the Bible. You have proven your capacity to seek and have found just what you went looking for. Whoa all the way back to the dawn of man looking for something wrong with this Bible. We know inbreeding such as you proposed would cause corruption of the DNA and one possible outcome would be shorter life spans. As a result of the flood ,a major change in the environment, foods etc. it is not a perfect place anymore. If you follow evolution of man we are currently on a short tail. We could come up with lots of possibilities but never really know what Adam and Eve were really like. Yet science will tell you everything points to a pairing of DNA. Bottom line, old Alpha males lived long and had big families 5- 10,000+ years ago.

      " Lo and behold he was a judge of Israel for 20 years with all his problems. Good thing congressional approval was not required when he was made a judge."

      By what qualification do you call this a good thing? The Bible doesn't say much (anything) about the judgments he made in his official judging capacity, but what it tells us about his judgments in his personal life is almost universally appallingly bad. Such as when he murdered thirty men in order to steal their possessions to settle a gambling debt. I'm fairly certain Congress wouldnt approve any judge with that on their record, and I'm also fairly certain that most of us would side with Congress on that call.

      How can you separate ones personal life from the decisions one makes in public life as a judge. The black robe does not change what is in a man it only covers it up with the appearance of dignity. Take someone who hates Christians, Jews and the Bible. How can that person reach a fair conclusion in a trial of a fundamentalist who bombs an abortion clinic? Sampson dishonored his family, heritage, was a womanizer, had his wife killed and turned away from his own God……………..now there is judge we can rely on.

    • Civiloutside

      Alright, Fred, I'm not sure where you're coming from on this. My point was that Samson's judgment was terrible. You seem to be saying the same thing while implying we disagree. Is there a miscommunication here?

    So the show is actually called "Real Housewives of Science Fiction", a feel good story about women who believe in magical beings and sky fairies.

    Hmmm... Still not interested in watching it.

      It's not about women who believe in God, it's about women who were written about in the Bible. Why dont you work on your reading and comprehension skills before you try to pretend to be intellectually superior to others. Also, there are plenty of people much smarter than you who admit it is possible for a God to exist.

      July 5, 2011 at 12:35 pm |
    • Phil

      @ Loren

      It is impossible for a god to exist. It defies the laws of reasoning. The universe is extremely huge - why would one being create all this just for us.

      Once you start questioning the bible, seeing the contradictions throughout and questioning the existence of god, you'll understand why people become Atheist. And we're much happier people.

      July 5, 2011 at 12:38 pm |
    • JaniceB

      The universe is huge, but proven to be finite. And proven to have had a beginning. And we on earth are located in a "safe place" in the galaxy where few asteroids roam and where we have the EXACT atmospheric formula, distance from the sun, and gravity, among other things, to sustain life. Until it is proven elsewhere, the very IDEA that there is life on other planets is much more far-fetched than to believe that an external force (GOD) created the universe, instead of some random, disorganized event causing this precise earth and us. The odds are trillions and trillions to one. Throw your watch on the floor in pieces and stand there and wait for a random event to put it back together...won't happen ever. But SOMETHING put the pieces of the universe together to result in human life. And since God is outside of time and space, the argument of who created Him doesn't fly. HE simply IS (and was and always will be). Humans are forced to think on a timeline since we live on one, so this concept is one of eternal nature, and can't be grasped.
      Sorry you are an atheist because even though you may be "happy" you have no hope of anything beyond your very finite lifespan so your life means nothing in the grand scheme of an atheistic world...

      @Phil. Methinks thou doest protest too much. Who are you trying to convince that there is no God? Yourself or CNN readers? You don't sound very happy to me...kind of cynical and bitter actually. I hope that's not true and that you are genuinely happy and content with your life.

      It's a self-fulfilling prophecy – mostly because the persecution is manufactured – it doesn't exist. As with the mythical 'war on Christimas' Christians in this country like to portray themselves as the underdogs – the repressed. And it's effective – when one is defensive, even against a non-existent threat – one probably isn't going to have much of an open mind.

    • Doc Vestibule

      @JaniceB
      You seem to be under the impression that the world – indeed the very universe – is created just so in order to have us in it.
      The reality is that we are adapted to our environment, not the other way around.
      If you get a moment, google Douglas Adams' quote about the puddle...

      "we have the EXACT atmospheric formula, distance from the sun, and gravity, among other things, to sustain life. Until it is proven elsewhere, the very IDEA that there is life on other planets is much more far-fetched than to believe that an external force (GOD) created the universe, instead of some random, disorganized event causing this precise earth and us. The odds are trillions and trillions to one."

      Well, there are a few logical errors that need to be addressed here.

      First, the idea that the fact that our planet seems ideally suited to supporting life means that it was designed to do so. Given that life by its nature and the nature of evolution adapts itself to its environment and its environment to itself easily accounts for the close congruence between life on earth and conditions on earth. We discover all the time that life can exist in a wider range of environments than we necessarily realize. Any life that arises in a different set of conditions than what we have on earth would also be ideally suited to it's environment. It's only a self-centered viewpoint that makes it seem that the environment was created for you rather than the other way around.

      Second, while it might be a reasonable assumption that something outside if the universe gave rise to the universe, there's no actual evident that the "something" had to be an intelligence that deliberately set out to create a universe. I.e. No evidence that the "something" was a god, or that it has any specific plans for any of us individually.

      Last, the odds of this specific earth with this specific form of life arising are almost irrelevant. What matters are the odds that any environment that supports any form of life are what matters. And those odds, given the natural laws of the universe, are actually pretty good. This just happens to be the form of life and the environment that did happen. It's exactly like someone winning the lottery. Knowing that the odds of getting the winning combination are one in a hundred million, it seems to the winner like they experienced a miracle. To an outside observe who knows that three hundred million tickets were sold, the fact that *someone* won seems inevitable.

    • Bucky Ball

      Ok Janice let's back THIS up with a little information.

      Where exactly has the universe been proven to be "finite" ? Citation please.

      "And proven to have had a beginning."
      -- Citation please. The Big Bang is a theory, not a proven fact.

      "And we on earth are located in a "safe place" in the galaxy where few asteroids roam and where we have the EXACT atmospheric formula"
      -- We may be NOW be, but life developed AFTER those conditions developed, (there WAS a period when asteroid impacts were far more numerous, and from soil and ocean core samples, (and it is PROVEN that the atmospheric concentrations of oxygen, nitrogen, and various other gasses were NOT always compatible with present life forms). It was not always "safe". The Anthropic Principle's use as proof of a deity has been debunked so many times it is a waste of time to discuss. Google it.

      "instead of some random, disorganized event causing this precise earth and us. The odds are trillions and trillions to one."
      -- Wrong. The results of the computation of the Drake Equation is far far different than you assert, and with the recent discovery of the fact that 600 se'xtillion is the approximate value for the number of stars, (term in the equation) make's the answer a virtual certainty.

      "Throw your watch on the floor in pieces and stand there and wait for a random event to put it back together...won't happen ever."
      -- It may not in your tiny lifetime, but you cannot prove that it will never happen, and you have not given us the equation for that probability. (And Reductio Ad Absurdum is not valid, logically). How are they a related analogy, exactly ?

      "But SOMETHING (HAD TO ?) put the pieces of the universe together to result in human life"
      -- There are many theories for the evolution of the universe's processes, probabilities etc., and the jump from an inability to see at this time, or in the past, or even for the foreseeable future to a position of "faith" is not logical, or rational, or even the only option . Intelligent Design has been debunked. Google it.

      "Sorry you are an atheist because even though you may be "happy" you have no hope of anything beyond your very finite lifespan so your life means nothing in the grand scheme of an atheistic world..."
      -- You clearly need t get out more, and projecting your own rationalizations for why some may chose to NOT abandon their rationality could be seen to be as just as prejudiced as some of those you rail against. Citation please.

      "You guys wouldn't have your freedom now if it weren't for our Judeo-Christian value system put in place in the 1700's"
      -- The values that emerged from the Enlightenment in the 1700's, here as well as in other places,were NOT "Judeo-Christian", but the complex result of patterns evolving for centuries, including the Reformation, and the effects of the discovery of the printing press, etc., etc. A good case can be made that that heritage did a LOT more to stunt the movements towards freedom and independence. Citation please.

      @ Bucky Ball...here is my response to your post that wouldn't go through. I'm sending it in two separate posts and hoping for the best...
      @ Bucky Ball
      I am an old-earth creationist which means I think it took 14 billion years give or take, for it to form. Radio telescopes can see all the way back to the "Big Bang" as of the early part of this century, not that long ago. So yes, the Big Bang, or a Speedy start of something out of nothingness, is fairly well accepted in the scientific community, unless you can still prove that Carl Sagan's infinite universe still survives (the theory is as dead as the man). No longer valid, just like the premordial soup thing.

      I respect those who believe in the 7 day creation since it has nothing to do with Salvation to know how long it took for the Universe to be created. Just that all believers trust that God did it.

      Evolution is a theory – Google it. Darwin believed in God and never even knew what a bacterium was. Read about what he said about his own book later in his life. He discredited his own theory.

      This nation was not formed under revisionist history, but most of the founding fathers who signed the Dec. of Independence (50 out of 55) were Christian and were glad to get out from under the Government run Church of England. Christian reformers came out of Europe to the US. Ben Franklin believed that God was actively involved in the lives of men...“The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?” (part 2 next)

      @Janice,
      "The Universe is huge, but proven to be infinite".
      -- I thought you were talking about the size of the universe there, not it's origin.
      "I respect those who believe in the 7 day creation since it has nothing to do with Salvation to know how long it took for the Universe to be created. Just that all believers trust that God did it.
      -- When I was at Harvard I had the good fortune to have a famous Jewish philosopher lecture to us frequently in our Old Testament class. It taught me also that one could look at the creation myths in different ways, including mythological/allegorical ways, and that "literally" was the least rational way to read them, as "literal fact" was not a part of the world view of the authors. The problem is when one starts down the road of "OK, I take this literally, and not that", where does that end ? It's a very slippery slope. What criteria do you use to pick and choose what to take literally and what to ignore ?
      -- I know evolution is a theory. The fact that Darwin may have distanced himself from it at some point is not a problem, or that it may have been refined in the past, and will be refined in the future. There is no better theory so far to explain the observations, and when there is, bring it on. Lots of "great" scientist make grave errors, but evolution is not dependent on Darwin any more. Einstein said "God doesn't play dice", and lost the argument.

      -- i do not dispute that most of the Founding Fathers self- identified themselves as Christians. I was questioning the origins of the (larger than just US), movement towards democracy in the 1700's, and do not believe the Enlightenment was a result of Judeo-Christian movements, (example the French Revolution).

      “The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men."
      -- What are they ?
      "And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?”
      -- Like Nazi Germany ?

      Many people use that Hitler argument and ask why God "let" it happen. There is sin here on earth. God does not CAUSE what happens here, he merely CONTROLS it. The WHY it happened is not for us to answer. But the Jewish people survived in spite of Hitler, who was brought down to a desperate suicide at the end.
      The people who believe in the 7 day creation take the English version as true translation of the Hebrew, when in fact the word for "day" in Hebrew is "yom" and means "segment of time", or an unknown amount of time passing, such as "In the day of my grandfather..." This gives license to be able to say that the Universe was created in 7 units of unknown time segments. The word for day in the Bible when it truly meant "24 hour day" was a DIFFERENT Hebrew word. So unfortunately for those who laugh at Genesis, it's not really incorrect and it's also not wrong to assume an old old Universe and believe God created it just as in Genesis.

      This show is an example of CHINO's. – Christians in Name Only.
      A true Christian believes in the virgin birth of Jesus, the infallibility of the Bible, and the Resurrection of Jesus who was the only person (since He was God in human form) who was without sin. This is what the Bible teaches us about Christianity. There is no other written authority or organization that gives us God's intended message for man since He wrote the book through inspired men, and everything else afterward is man's opinion, not God's writing. Anything else is just paying it lipservice by dumbing down Christianity and God despises lukewarm Christians. He clearly says so! This show dishonors women of the Bible. And they were clearly allowed to divorce adulterous husbands under Christ's teachings.

      Janice – a little bit disappointed in your posting here. No one knows the heart of another person except the Lord. To throw a label on someone (CHINO) like you did in your posting is showing a reflection of the state of your own heart. You don't know what the Lord is doing in someone elses life. Instead of labeling them, try loving them.

      @W249,
      Sorry, you are right. It's often hard to take a step back and watch professed Christians live and act just the opposite. And if someone doesn't believe in the Resurrection, how can they claim the name of Christ as Savior? Prayer is needed.

    The really sad aspect of all of the three religions of Abraham (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) is that the young and innocent are brainwashed from day 1. The sin, shame and guilt imposed upon them makes it difficult indeed to leave behind the dichotomy of fantasy and terror. But then abuse of children is nothing new, beginning with Abraham and Isaac. Then you have violent sibling rivalry (fratricide), genocide, regicide, infanticide – oh, and incest, yada yada, yada. What a waste of life.

      @Mattie:
      And are children who grow up in a home "with two daddies" and no mom or a home with rampant immorality not brainwashed? Which is better? Most Christians I know were raised in a home where no one went to church at all. They found their own way. Christians, of all people do not force their faith on anyone. If a Christian tries to do this to their children, the children will surely rebel...

      "Christians, of all people do not force their faith on anyone." That's easily the most deluded thing I have read here, and I have read some real whoppers. You clearly have never read any history at all.

    • JaniceB

      @Reid:
      A person's faith is their own choosing. Note I said that children will rebel if Christianity is FORCED upon them. That is why many Christians today came from upbringings that had no church belief in the home. When you talk about history, sure, it happened in many cases, but we have freedom of religion here, not a Religious Government like in Muslim countries. If someone is forcing Christianity on a child, it is wrong. Exposing them to it is not, since it is much more moral than what the world has to offer..

      July 5, 2011 at 7:55 pm |
    • Frogist

      @JaniceB: I have to disagree with you. Most Christians I know, have always called themselves that whether they go to church or not. They most certainly didn't come to Christianity on their own. They were 'exposed' from an early age and it's not like their parents taught them about hinduism or islam. I wouldn't say it's brainwashing, but I would say the culture they were born in has Christianity as a default, so most simply identified as such. And if they decided to become more serious about their faith, they simply went with the one they were most familiar with. This choice you speak of was not exactly a free one since it was most likely heavily influenced by the culture, family or society people were born into.
      Also are you equating a home with two daddies and no mom as a home with rampant immorality?

    While I agree with that the "Real Housewives"-type shows promote a selfish lifestyle and should be rebutted as such, the approach of the producers of this show is no better in my opinion.

      @Mikky H: I have to agree with you there. But the entire premise of a show about the wives of successful men is also kinda se-xist on the surface anyway. It's not Basketball WOMEN, but WIVES.

If you were saying this about a race, or most likely even another religion, people would be calling you out. It's sad to see how Christian's have to be everyone's punching bag and if they defend themselves it just causes people to attack them more.

      It's a self-fulfilling prophecy – mostly because the persecution is manufactured – it doesn't exist. As with the mythical 'war on Christimas' Christians in this country like to portray themselves as the underdogs – the repressed. And it's effective – when one is defensive, even against a non-existent threat – one probably isn't going to have much of an open mind.

      @ Stevie7:

      So even this little blog of Christian bashing is not persecution? It's MANUFACTURED? Hmmm, if a bunch of people were to bash your way of life, not just online in these sites that let me respond, but in the mind-numbed media in print and on TV, you would call that MANUFACTURED?
      No, it is an attack on my faith and what I believe and I hear and see it daily.
      But I happen to like God's plan where His promises are eternal for those who endure the mud slung at them. He also has much to say to those that do it. Better to be saved than sorry...

      So, any form of criticism is persecution? No one's throwing anyone else into a lions' den here. No one is trying to say you can't pray or can't go to church.

      The criticisms come from both sides. Hating something is not persecuting that something. I can hate it when my neighbors dog barks in the middle of the night – and I can say to my neighbor that I really hate it when his dog barks in the middle of the night. But in doing so, I am most definitely not persecuting him. As much as you don't want it to be the case, you persecution is most definitely manufactured. Because your 2000+ year old book says its going to happen, you seem to want it to be so. But that doesn't make it any less made up.

      @Stevie7 – 'the persecution is manufactured, it doesn't exist'. That's simply wrong. Indeed, Christians have received more persecution over the last century than for the previous 19 centuries combined. Millions of Christians are under persecution throughout the world. According to recent surveys, more than 200 million Christians are denied basic human rights in at least 60 different countries because of their faith. Even when you look at secular sources, it is confirmed that hundreds of millions of Christians have faced physical persecution for their faith in recent years, and millions if not tens of millions have been murdered for their faith.

      Jeremy – I do not deny that many people, of many different faiths, are legitimately persecuted for their faith – whatever that faith may be – on a daily basis. To claim that criticism from blogs like this and in the media is a form of persecution is an insult to those who actually ARE persecuted. The persecution that Janice thinks she's experiencing is made up. I didn't intend for that to be a blanket, global statement – apologies if it came across that way.

Cover it up with any blanket you want, but your hatred is so evident in your posts, that it oozes intolerance of something you don't agree with. Christians are intolerant of sin, not people. You guys hate Christians and the Bible that our faith is based on – Best selling book ever in the history of the world, btw. Go ahead, Bash the Koran in the same way!

    • Doc Vestibule

      @Janice
      The reason why the Koran isn't bashed as frequently as teh bible in this forum is isn't out of fear of reprisal from angry Muslims. The reason is simply that Christian culture is VASTLY more pervasive in North America and we are therefore more familiar with the particulars of the Bible than those of the Koran.
      Many American atheists were raised in Christian families and were subject to biblical indoctrination from an early age, but somewhere along the line skepticism creeped into their consciousness which led to research, which led to rationality.
      Some irreligious people are bitterly disillusioned once they realize that the "Truth" they were taught all their lives is only one of a thousand supernatural mythologies that exist to explain the human condition.

      An Atheist raised Inca would comment on Viracocha as the creator of the world.
      If Aztec, faith in transubstantiation that made human sacrifice and cannibalism an ethical, moral and solemn occasion would be the subject of debate.
      If Scientology were the religion in which an eventual free-thinker was raised, they'd ridicule talking to Thetans about what Xenu did to them.

      Many Christians today were not brought up in a household with any churchgoers or believers. Many, like Journalist Lee Strobel, and best selling author Josh McDowell, actually set out to disprove the Bible and became believers as adults when they ventured on their task.
      Suffice it to say that I, who have read the Koran, come from a position of knowledge of the books. NO ONE who has not read the Bible all the way through has a right to criticize it. Who would critique a movie they never saw (except maybe a paid movie critic).
      A former aetheist who becomes informed Christian can effectively denounce aetheism by showing evidence of answered prayers in their lives and the lives of others. Aetheism in itself IS a religion. It's the belief in nothing...."Only a fool says in his heart there is no God" Psalm 14:1.

      Oh wow.

      Atheism is not a religion because is requires no belief. Otherwise not believing in Santa, aliens abductors, ghosts, mermaids, and unicorns are all religions which most of us practice – which is absurd. Prayers don't get answered. Just because someone THINKS that their prayers are answered doesn't mean that some all-powerful deity heard what that person was asking and then decided that for this particular person at this particular time they were going to alter the universe to satisfy them. Getting what you want for Christmas as a five year old because you secretly asked santa for something is not proof that santa exists – all it means is that your parents got lucky.

      If prayer actually worked – if it made a difference, then that difference would easily be verifiable. Scientific studies have showed that this is definitely not the case.

      I've a bookshelf at home dedicated to mythology.
      There's a KJV, a Torah, Koran, Book of Mormon, B'Hai, I Ching, Buddhist manual, Richard Dawkins, Kierkergard, and an ecyclopedia of ancient myths covering Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Inca, Aztec, and other Native American beliefs.
      I add to it regularly so that my child can explore the myriad mythologies man has dreamed up over time without adding undue weight to any one in particular.
      I teach her that they are all undisprovable – that each and every one of those tales has been beleived by some people to be the literal, inerrant Truth.
      What she does that that information is up to her, of course.
      Perhaps she'll become a Hindu.

      As for me, exposure to all that information and travelling the world meeting people of different faiths and cultures has convinced me that anyone claiming to possess The Truth is either deluded or a charlattan.

      @ Stevie7
      Many respected texts refer to Atheism as a religion. You have your own doctrine of NOT following some of the tenets of the Bible (such as belief, praying, not cursing God's name etc.), but you follow most of the 10 Commandments as a rule (Thou shalt...not kill, not steal, etc). Why is that? The absence of God's existence should dictate that you do not enforce rules upon anyone that were God-inspired. You should subscribe to the absence of morality or else your non-belief is a contradiction. Why not cheat on your wife if she would never find out? What stops the Atheist? God's moral compass or your "conscience" which is wiped out at your death by your own admission so it should not be a guiding factor.

      @ Stevie7
      God is Not Santa, and we aren't supposed to ask Him to make us rich like the televangelists say, (and then send them your check). But He does hear and act on prayer when He sees that it will be to His Glory, not ours. Many weird events are recorded where people wake up in the middle of the night with a sudden urge to pray for someone far away, exactly when the person far away is in deep trouble, and ends up avoiding a bad result. These are too numerous for coincidence.
      Also, Israel exists because God wants it to be there. Otherwise all historical indications are that the Jews should have never got their land back and it would have been taken over by another country by now...Israel shall remain until the end of the earth as God wants it that way...

    This is ironic to me. Personally my most kinkee wild one night stands have been with women who were the best 'Christians'. They went to church 2-3x a week, spent time spreading the faith to others, volunteered, and made a point of talking about how they were going to 'stay pure' until they were married. Those 'pure' women put some adult actresses to shame.

    Sounds like a typical case of trademark infringement to me. I am so sick of people of faith trying to muscle their way into every aspect of our culture. Its kind of like the latinos they complain about changing the language. Let Bravo and Andy Cohen sue the hell out of these people.

      Nothing irks me more than those Calvin and Hobbes figures praying to a cross that people place on the back of their cars. Nothing like a little copyright infringement to let the world know how self-righteous you are.

      They do have a point about reality TV promoting self-absorbed lifestyles, though.

      I would love one of those Calvin decals - but with him peeing on the cross instead of praying to it.

    “Many single women can get a man but they can’t keep a man,” Adams said. “So many singles have been in girlfriend status for so long that they only understand that mentality. They don’t know what it takes to be a good wife in order to sustain a relationship and some parts of society promotes that.”
    -– Maybe someone should inform Ms Adams that plural subjects require plural verbs.
    -– Maybe the entire paradigm of "getting' a man implies a male chauvinism that is breathtaking ?
    -– Maybe the t'itle of Ms Adams book "Why Am I Still Single?" with it's ALL MALE panel tells me more than I want to know.
    - Maybe "Learn the secrets to capturing a man's heart, how to get a man to propose & much more! Thursday, Feb 3rd @ 9pm EST – Live phone conference" tells me more than I need to know before dismissing this as a commercial venture based on "capturing" and not freedom, and "how to get a man to propose" might imply a sneaky manipulation instead of an honest and equally respectful partnership ?

      why would anyone be interested in her vapid comments. The Christian thing is getting old, very fast, especially when it's based on that litany of disillusion, the bible. Show me a Christian that thinks for himself and I'll show you one ready to get the hell out!

    Christains at it again trying to be mainstream and cool in order to keep the money flowing. Rock-n-roll was satan's music but eventually they broke down and now there is christain rock, punk-hipster christains and a whole slew of phony and corny wanna-be-cool christian stuff. If these things don't turn people away from christainity, I don't know what will.

      I used to go to a megachurch, until I saw the town car our pastor arrived in. There is no God in these places. God is in the home and God in our heart. No where else. When people exercise their right to assembly and worship, they are also exercising their right to be taken for a ride by con artists and greedy preachers.
