GET UPDATES FROM Edward Falzon
 
Edward Falzon is the author of the biblical parody Being Gay is Disgusting (or God Likes the Smell of Burning Fat), available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and eBook for Kindle, Nook, iTunes and Kobo.

Further information about Edward's 2012-13 Biblical Morality Tour can be found at www.biblicalmorality.com/tour


Raised in a Catholic family, Edward Falzon recited the prayers and sang the hymns faithfully and went through his First Communion, Reconciliation and Confirmation during his primary-school years.

As an adult, traveling all over the world for business, he met hundreds of people of all manner of faith. Spending most of his time in North America, Europe and Australia, most people were Christians, but with different positions on the Bible, God, Jesus, Mary and the other players in the Christian mythos.

Falzon found it curious that one book can cause this much disagreement over its contents, so he started investigating. While reading the bible himself, he sought out more Christians for their disparate biblical and Christian views and discovered that the vast majority hadn’t even read the Bible. It occurred to him that there can be no discussion, no debate, no analysis of any kind, until people become familiar with the foundations of their own faith.

An Open Letter to Dr Matt Taylor

Dear Matt,

Please allow me to congratulate you and your colleagues for an extraordinary accomplishment. Of the 7 billion people on this planet, I doubt more than a few thousand have the capacity to fully understand how complicated the Rosetta project is. I am certainly not one of those few-thousand...

IAmA Terrorist. AMA.

My name is Edward Falzon, and I've been a terrorist for several years. After extensively investigating religion and studying scripture to learn the true nature of God, I felt I had no choice but to turn to terrorism. I am, as they say, a prisoner of what I know.

A Secular Interfaith Sermon for Boston

(3) Comments | Posted April 24, 2013 | 3:33 PM

The unfortunate but unavoidable reality is that some things simply don't make sense. There's a large and fast-growing demographic in the United States -- possibly 60 million or more -- who accept the reality and finality of death and, in troubling times, simply need community, upon whom they can lean...

Why Is Everyone So Saddened By the Pope's Resignation?

The man who stands behind bullet-proof glass as he preaches that one must accept the hour of their death has resigned today.

The man who wears a tailored dress while condemning cross-dressing has resigned today.

The man who, for decades, seems to have been protecting his male minions from prosecution...

Time to Repeal the Second Amendment. Seriously.

It continues to befuddle my mind that the USA permits its citizens to arm themselves with a personal arsenal. In some states, I understand, it's even legal to carry concealed weapons to work.

After the Aurora shooting, handgun sales in Colorado soared, assisted in no small way by certain politicians...

In Defense of Dinesh D'Souza

(39) Comments | Posted October 20, 2012 | 10:24 AM

Don't get me wrong: I consider Dinesh to be wasting his time and brain power believing and proselytising things that are objectively untrue.

But this new fiancee-mistress "scandal" in which he has become embroiled is the embodiment of both the proverbial storm in a tea-cup and the abuse of religious...

September 30 2012 was the fourth annual Blasphemy Rights Day International, and we needed it this year as much as any other.

To the chagrin of anyone in favour of freedom of speech, such as Barack Obama, there are new calls at the United Nations to introduce an...

I'm No Movie Critic, But Innocence of Muslims is SOOO Bad!

In recent days, a certain film has received a great deal of buzz, but nobody has taken the time to review it. I have decided to oblige.

I can take a bad movie. I'm almost always glad to suspend belief for the sake of immersing myself in the fiction of...

The Ten Commandments You Never Knew

(3) Comments | Posted September 6, 2012 | 2:01 PM

"Of course I know the Ten Commandments," I hear you muttering. "Worship only God, no idols, observe the Sabbath, don't kill, steal, lie, cheat on your spouse..."

Yeah, that's not them. It's a common mistake, and before I did my homework, I, too, was blissfully unaware that the Ten...

For what might be the first time in the history of the United States, possibly the whole world, an atheist will deliver the opening "prayer" at a government meeting.

Atheism's Growing Numbers

I'm pretty new to the continent.

I touched down in Los Angeles only six weeks ago and started North on my Biblical Morality tour. Most of my time has been spent speaking at secular organizations and student groups, and I've been surprised at just how active the atheist/secular...

In what Amnesty International describes as "a serious setback for freedom of expression in Indonesia," Alexander Aan has been imprisoned for 30 months for posting "God doesn't exist" on Facebook, along with some "offensive" cartoons. Again with the cartoons! He was also fined an amount exceeding double Indonesia's...

I Believe: An Atheist's "World View"

(1699) Comments | Posted July 17, 2012 | 1:42 PM

I believe in absolute and unconditional equality amongst all people. We must not make exceptions for women, gays, Asians, left-handers, no-one. Organizations that seek to curtail the rights of any demographic should be disbanded, ridiculed or lose their tax-exemption status.

I believe that the right of people to live in...
