Hitchens on Prohibition

Classic Hitchens, walking out to an interview with a glass of scotch. The man loves his alcohol! The only person on the show who looks lost here is Mos Def, who tries in vain not to look totally useless. (via atheistmedia.com) ...

Texas education down the drain, again

I thought the whole Texas Board of Education nonsense was over when the creationists were narrowly defeated, but it looks like they are introducing another amendment allowing teachers to tell students there is some 'debate' as to the age of the universe. If you think a debate amounts to every serious scientist on this planet accepting the modern estimates at 13.5 billion years versus a group of undereducate ...

Britain gives grant to psychics

Deborah and Paul Rees make their living by scamming people. They probably aren't fully aware of the fraud themselves, convinced that they are helping families by their cheap 'psychic' act. The British government seems to think the practice is kosher, and has awarded a £4,500 grant for them to teach other people how to talk to the dead. I hate to rain on their parade, but if these two clowns really want to p ...

Lancet tears Pope a new a-hole

The Lancet is one of the most well respected and read peer reviewed medical journals in the world, and they were not impressed with Pope Benedict's statements that condoms made the spread of HIV and AIDS worse, so they issued the following statement: Whether the Pope's error was due to ignorance or a deliberate attempt to manipulate science to support Catholic ideology is unclear. When any influential perso ...

It’s just a movie, dog

Here's a bullshit documentary detailing how Harry Potter is a Zionist piece of propaganda. What I find hilarious is these 'historians' seem to forget their own religion is basically a plagiarism of both Judaism and Christianity. Also, I've met plenty of Jews, and not one of them was interested in world domination. Religious fundamentalists (on both the Islamic and Christian side), however, have no problem i ...

I mentioned last night how important the Texas School Board debates are, and a fan tuned me in to this website, which is live blogging the event. Do yourself a favor and go take a look! ***NOTE*** It looks like science has won the day, and the notion to include all that creationist nonsense has failed. Score one for the good guys! ...

Stop being evil, atheists!

Wow, I don't even know where to start with this guy...Did you know I was 100,000% wrong according to this guy? Oh, and he says if you hate God, he'll hate you right back. That sounds more like the guy I've read in the Old Testament than this Jesus fellow. Finally someone who gets it! ...

Archbishop tells people “Don’t turn to God for help”

I understand the reasoning behind the Archbishop of Canterbury warning that humans are the ones who need to clean up the environment. It's logical, and I certainly won't argue with the logic. What I will argue with, however, is that Christians fundamentally believe the world going to shit is actually a good thing, since it means their Lord will come back, send all the good people to heaven, and fix everythi ...

Wired is worried about Texas too

Who isn't? Now just two days away from deciding what will constitute the standard science textbook in Texas, everyone should be paying attention. This is especially true since many other states often base their own curriculum on what Texas does. I didn't know this, but these guys produce most of the teaching material for much of the south. So in that sense, this whole issue just got a lot more intense. It s ...

26 percent of Turks support honor killings

I always knew that a portion of Muslims in the world endorse honor killings, but I never realized until today just how big that number is. A new survey in Turkey shows just how chilling the response is, and how incompatible this cultural attitude is to modern societal values. 26 percent of adults and teenagers are in full support of honor killings. That's a full quarter of their population. I find it surpri ...
