Archer's Asylum

I'm a big bloke (7ft tall) and I am forever reading. This will mostly be my thoughts as I am reading and possibly a review or two. You may know me as Archer.


I am basically a lurker. My life revolves around my wife, my cats, Books, and entertainment.


I'm working on building and setting up a forge and I'm generally one of those people who can be found causing or in the middle of mischief somewhere...

Holy Bible: King James Version

Holy Bible: King James Version - Anonymous Self contradictory, Inflammatory, Racist, Sexist, Boring, Fundamentally Flawed, Full of rape, violence, incest, spousal abuse, slavery... I have nothing nice to say about this book, except that some of the illuminated panels are quite pretty. The poetry and fables of the Qu'Ran, whilst no more believable, are vastly more emotive. One thing I do wonder though... Adam and Eve had 2 sons... Cain and Abel, who apparently fathered the rest of humanity... Considering there was only one woman and Cain killed Abel anyway... Cain fucked his mum (or at the very least sister/sheep).... and that's just sick in the head.I'm not convinced by ANY religion or their texts... But I have to say... this book will make a brilliant door stop.And for any theists who call me a "militant atheist", near enough all religions share one doctrine... BE COOL TO ONE ANOTHER. DON'T BE A PRICK, JUST BE NICE. I'm sorry I don't need a religion to tell me this. It's common sense. I have no doubts that Jesus (the man not the supposed son of your invisible sky friend) existed, and that he was a savvy political mind. But I don't need to "pray" or go to church/temple/mosque... whatever on a religions sabbath day to be a good person. *EDIT* I have found an image that I find hilarious It's thought provoking too
