Ok, this is pretty cool

JESUS2000 from jesus 2000 on Vimeo. No real message here, but the music and animation are pretty damn awesome. Hey, the Messiah myth has been with us for thousands of years; way before the story of Jesus. If you haven't heard of Dionysus, or Buddha, I recommend you check them out too. They used to be hot shit back in the day. (via Daily Dish) ...

This is considered hate speech?

I think overly sensitive Christians need to re-examine their definition of hate speech. Political hopeful William J. Kelly is attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill, claiming a sign erected by the Freedom from Religion Foundation in the Illinois Capital Building is hate speech: At the time of the winter solstice, let reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There ...

Anti Abortion militants upset over Tiller murder conviction

It appears anti-abortion activists are getting a bit crazier every day. The recent conviction of Scott Roeder, who gunned down Dr. George Tiller just about a year ago, has apparently rallied religious nutjobs who think killing doctors who perform abortions is a heroic act. They are upset he was found guilty, which makes me wonder what connection they have with reality. I'm not sure what they were expecting ...

Gotta love the Onion

With all the talk of abortions in the wake of the news, CBS apparently can't keep their fucking nose out of it, and the Onion comes out with this. Man, I wish I was as funny as them! (via Unreasonable Faith and Cynical C Blog) ...

Pray to solve crime: UK Home Office provides grant for Christian police

They are already claiming the program, which they've already initiated, is having some major success: In one particular area, an officer was investigating an incident but he had not been ...

Hot Atheist Chick on why evolution is true

Yes, I'm aware her YouTube name is actually ZOMGitsCriss, but that doesn't mean I have to like it (also, the intro song is actually a little bit terrible, but in a cute way). Here is her latest video explaining why evolution is true. She provides extensive examples of transitional fossils for doubters who apparently can't be bothered to do research themselves (presumably out of fear of being proved wrong). ...

More parents acting crazy; Virginia school bans Anne Frank’s Diary

It's now official; parents need to stay the fuck out of the educational system. How else are we supposed to react when one of these people gets the expanded version of Anne Frank's diary banned for containing a short passage making reference to the vagina? There are little folds of skin all over the place, you can hardly find it. The little hole underneath is so terribly small that I simply can't imagine ho ...

Three speeches on surviving a religious upbringing

Here is the Center for Inquiry's lecture held in the latter part of 2009. The speeches start at the 10 minute mark, so if you want to avoid all the "boring" introduction stuff, skip ahead. If you're at work and can listen to things in the background, there's no real slideshow, so enjoy it in the background.  The speakers are William Lobdell, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, and Marilyn Mehr. (props to Groman88 ...

Left Behind video game aims for major console market

In Daniel Radosh's funny and memorable book Rapture Ready, the author talks extensively about Christian literature and the willingness of evangelicals to buy their specialty products, no matter how shoddy or terrible they are. Hilariously enough, retailers who cater to Christian pop culture seem to be fully aware of just how tacky and terrible their own products are, so much so they refer to the vast majori ...
