Oh noes, Barak is the Antichrist!

I think there's a rule written somewhere that every living president has to be declared the Antichrist at some time in their presidency, otherwise no one takes them seriously. I think it would be a lot easier for most of these Christians to just come out and admit that they hate the fact their president has a different skin pigmentation than they do, and they can stop beating around the bush. If you enjoy w ...

This is what passes for “fair and balanced” at Fox News

Here Steve Doocy shows us precisely why Fox News is such a bankrupt news organization. According to this moron, putting the word God in your ad signifies that you must believe in him. By that logic, putting up a sign that says there is no Santa somehow secretly acknowledges the existence of the jolly bearded one. Fox's new slant on the whole controversy of atheism is to constantly remind us that people are ...

Indian witchdoctor beheads 5 year old girl

Superstitious beliefs are deadly. I know most of you in the Western World barely give this a second thought, but in many parts of the world, ancient and deadly rituals are still being practiced. In a small village in India, a 5 year old girl was lured into a field where she was decapitated by the local witchdoctor. He killed poor little Vandana Kumari in order to help a local man produce a male heir. Becaus ...

Boy steals father’s car, has chase with police to avoid church

How much does church suck? Well, I was never forced to go except for funerals, and even that was slow torture. I can therefore sympathize with this story. A 7 year old boy led police on a slow speed chase in his father's Intrepid, all because he wanted to avoid going to church. I imagine his punishment is simply going to be even more church, so his hasty decision will end up costing him in the end. I just w ...

Will you marry me, Hot Atheist Chick?

I got a lot of flak a few podcasts ago for saying the burka should be banned, so it's refreshing to hear that "Hot Atheist Chick" is also on my side. Well, she hasn't technically taken a side just yet, but I'm pretty sure she'll see the light soon enough. I also enjoyed her rant against feminists who accuse her of using her sexuality to get her message across. What the fuck is wrong with that? It seems to w ...

The Chaser’s war on everything tackles Biblical literalism

The truth is, almost no one believes the Bible is literally true. They just say they do because that's what they've been instructed to say. Most of these people have either never read the Bible, or they have conveniently ignored passages which so clearly call upon human beings to kill homosexuals, disobedient children, witches, fortune tellers, and people who don't believe in the same God they do. Wow, what ...

Young women in India plow fields naked to bring rain

Most of the time, religious superstitions are just silly, stupid, or dangerous. There are plenty of apartment buildings in my city that don't have a 13th floor for no other reason then people are annoyingly superstitious. Obviously, irrational thinking will make you do irrational things. I'm not telling you anything you don't know. Once in a blue moon, however, you come across a particular superstition that ...

Can belief in God be a good thing?

I received this email from long time fan of the site James, who recently had an experience with his mother he thought was worth sharing. I've received this kind of question pretty often, and I thought it might be good bring it up again to clarify my position. Here is James' letter: I really liked yesterday’s TGA bonus episode. Couldn’t agree more that End of Faith is my favourite of the books you mentioned. ...

Young girl disowned by family for seeking medical treatment

I'm sick and tired of Christian scientists. Apart from having a horribly misleading name, these morons don't care in the slightest about science. They are in truth opposed to scientific progress, which they view as a direct challenge to God's will. If you are sick and need medical help, it's time to get busy praying, and not calling the doctor. This story about a 15 year old girl being disowned for having s ...

Intelligent Design is a philosophy of Ignorance

Neil is a fun and interesting speaker. Here he is trying to argue that Intelligent Design is a philosophy of ignorance, and if we continue to allow creationists to undermine science, the state of intellectual progress in America is likely to suffer serious setbacks. I think it's sad when people invoke God to explain what they don't know. It's intellectually lazy, and doesn't lead to any real scientific prog ...
