Saudi women are becoming bold

I am not a rebel. Although I like to think I am controversial, in reality if push came to shove, I would probably retreat to the safety of conformity rather than suffer an ignoble fate. It's why I find the following story so striking: It's an article in the Saudi Gazette about all girl coffee shops, which is where today's young Saudi girls are going to let loose, have fun, and enjoy life. All of this is hig ...

More religious tragedy

Your average, moderately religious person is deathly afraid of cults. It's not the brainwashing they are afraid of, but rather the type of brainwashing that is used. After all, the most distinguishing characteristics of cults is that they usually take a very literal approach to their religion, and this uncomfortable reality often reminds the faithful there is a dark side to their own belief system. Consider ...

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) ...

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 ...

I hate to rain on their parade, but if these two clowns really want to p ...

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 ...

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! ...
