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 ...

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 ...

There've been many high profile economists who have come out publicly calling on the US to repeal drug prohibition laws. Today, it's Harvard Economist Jeffrey Miron talking to CNN.com. If you're wondering why so many economists are coming out of the woodwork to talk about prohibition, consider the last time the US faced a depression, one of the big policy changes that went into effect was the abolition of a ...
