Web Master Frank was born
into a modest household on November 15, 1975 in a small town in southern
New Jersey. Maybe you've heard of it, Atlantic City. His
parents were raised Catholic, but never forced him into any religious
ways... well aside from his baptism shortly after birth.
It wasn't until after he
moved to Florida and was in high school there, that he showed any
real interest in Christianity. He befriended a student who was a
preacher at a local Pentecostal Church. Frank was invited by his
fellow student to attend a youth rally, and to hear him and a mutual
friend play in their gospel band. At this point in his life, Frank
was agnostic at best. He believed in God, but never really made God
a big part of his life.
It was at this youth rally
that Frank first witnessed religious kookery. Frank recalls a scary
incident, "While this one old woman was playing a piano and singing, she
started screaming and I heard a 'thump', I figured she had a heart attack
and dropped dead... well she wasn't so lucky, she started running around
the church saying things like 'sha la la la la balalalala'. I
thought she was joking, but I learned later that she was speaking in
tongues... what a frigging kook".
Somewhat startled by what
he learned that the religious do, he began a little soul searching.
He attended quite a few churched to understand where they were coming
from, and in hopes to find out where he was going. He spoke with
many pastors about their churches and their beliefs, but never got
anywhere. Here Frank recalls a conversation that would start the
change to Atheism.
"I was talking to a
preacher who was trying to make me become part of his church. He
said that if my family and I didn't get saved, that we were sure to go to
Hell. I told him that we were good people, and have never done
anything to get a ticket to Hell. He insisted though that it was a
matter of being 'born again' to be able to go to Heaven. So I, being
the smart ass I can be, asked, 'So if Adolf Hitler became born again just
before he died... he would go to heaven, but I would go to Hell?' and he
said yes, that was the case. Needless to say I found that to be
stupid, and decided to start reading the Bible, something that I had never
done before, to see where he got this crap".
Before he had the chance to
read the Bible, one of his father's coworkers came over, and started
preaching like a madman. Talking all sorts of things that would lead
us to Hell. He then left us a New King James Version of the Bible.
Which both he and his mother read.
"It was a real eye opener,"
said Frank in a recent interview, "from page one, I found the Bible
impossible to believe. Moreover, I felt like a dolt for all the
years I said I believed in God and so on. Maybe it was due to my
love of science throughout childhood, but to me this book was an utter
After reading the Bible and
finding many errors and impossibilities, he not only solidified his
Atheism, but he went back and asked the pastors he knew about them.
The results were astonishing. Many pastors lead him on a Biblical
wild goose chase. Sending him from one version to another.
Some resulted in verbal and physical attacks.
He started to keep
notebooks on errors he found in the Bible, and would surf the internet
chat rooms looking for answers. It was during this time he decided
to make a web based notebook for his personal use, so he could copy and
paste scriptures. A year or so went by and he had showed his
research to some friends of his, as well as family members. It was
at their suggestion, that he made the site a little more eye catching and
opened it to the public. In 1998, Bible Belt was opened on
Angelfire.com. And it was a hit!
Due to the popularity, but
limited advertising ability of Angelfire, Frank went domain shopping.
He found that BibleBelt.com was already taken. So he an his brother
were brainstorming for domain names. They arrived on BibleBabble.com,
and in August of 2000, Frank purchased the domain name, and signed up with
the good people at An Entrance and has been bringing the Bible to you ever
Frank's religious study has
not been solely in the Christian faith. He has studied Islam,
Scientology, Sacred Geometry, Wicca, and many others. The
reason he has Bible Babble, and not Qu'ran Babble, or Dianetics Babble is
simple. "Christianity is the bloodiest and most oppressive of all.
This is through out history, and if they could get away with it
presently." Frank explains, "the other religions aren't activly trying to
become part of the national government, nor do you see Hindu groups
bombing abortion clinics, raiding night clubs, and forcing their beliefs
on others. Christianity needs to be exposed and stopped".
Frank is currently
attending college in Florida, majoring in Engineering Technology and
Business Management. He used to be an engineering technologist for a
now defunct engineering firm where he worked on projects for NASA, the US
Navy, and many other worldwide companies. In his spare time you can
find him reading. His favorite authors are Douglas Adams, Friedrich
Nietzsche, Terry Pratchett, and Stephen King. He also enjoys hockey,
movies, and nature... and killing monsters in Asheron's Call on Zone.com.
Frank enjoys getting e-mail
from his visitors, and responds to all of them. Feel free to drop a
