Judge dismisses sectarian assault on Atheist, blames him instead

Imagine you get physically assaulted for speaking your mind, and when it was time for your attacker to face justice, he's sent merrily on his way by a Judge who shares his specific religious convictions. Would you not regard this as a gross miscarriage of justice? Well, that's exactly what happened to fellow non-believer Ernest Perce, who was assaulted last October during a parade. Representing the Pennsylv ...

Creationist Alert!

It's only been a few days since it's been up, but already the forums are lighting up like the fourth of July. One topic that immediately caught my eye came courtesy of user DexM felt too important not to promote: The Christian club at my high school has invited creationist Bill Morgan from http://www.fishdontwalk.com/ to speak at one of their meetings. Needless to say I’m organizing a rapid response team to ...

Gingrich tells evangelicals “we need to defend ourselves”

In a continued effort to try and still be relevant, Newt Gingrich recently spoke to a modestly sized crowd in Cumming, Georgia assuring them of his (false) piety, and warning his dwindling support base that it was time for evangelicals to "defend themselves": "The other side will fight back and they will fight back on two fronts. You will have radical Islamists who want to kill us and you will have seculari ...

A lesson we can learn from David Albo

Ladies, I know how frustrated, angry and terrified you are about the current "War on Contraception" that the Right is currently engaged in. You have every right to be, especially when it's being framed not as a reproductive rights issue, but rather as a "religious freedom" issue. The solution comes from an unlikely source: Virginia Rep. David Albo. In the above video, this moron describes his failure to ban ...

Muslims in Afghanistan going nuts over Koran Burning

Remember last year when 24 people died because a US pastor made a public display of burning the Koran? Despite President Obama begging the guy not to do it, Pastor Terry Jones held a mock trial for the book, found it guilty of 3 crimes against humanity and set it on fire. Huge protests errupted in both Pakistan and Afghanistan, and like every crazy protest in these countries, a bunch of people got killed. S ...

Richard Dawkins / Archbishop of Canterbury debate

It still amazes me the way we let experts on nonsense babble on about their specific deity and its role in the natural world. What does super-magical-man-you-can't-disprove have to do with evolution? The moderator made the mistake of claiming both Dawkins and the Archbishop knew for certain what the truth of the Universe was. Dawkins ended up admitting the limitations of his own understanding (and the obvio ...

New Site is Live

Yes folks, the new site is up. That means we now have working Forums. It also means an easy and quicker way to browse content (including our new podcast player). The site is still going through some growing pains, so the new graphics won't always work properly, or they may shift around. But otherwise, let me know what you think. ...

A place for us to grieve

Death is hard on those who accept its terminal reality. There's no magical playland in the sky, there's no transference or retention of our thought patterns, and there's no evidence whatsoever that the mind is anything more than the brain. Materialism may not be appealing to the majority of the population, but it's undeniably the only reality so far to manifest itself. These supernatural fairy-tales we've c ...
