Tired Christian claim #1: atheism is a religion

Think of it as a huge FAQ that helps you answer some annoying claims people make about atheism without actually understanding it.

Family Research Council’s video on Tiller, shortly before his murder

Here's a video made only a month before Tiller's murder, identifying him again to the public as a menace, and painting him as some sort of monstrous criminal. This is the kind of campaign that gets men like Tiller killed. If you still don't think there is any connection between the right wing propaganda that's out there and the murder of abortion doctors, then please visit this link and check out a document ...

This guy is awesome!

OK, I don't want to make a political statement here, but I must contend just listening to this guy made my day. When he starts screaming Yahweh out loud, and singing weird hymns, it just gets laugh out loud hilarious. He then gets tasered, and manages to elude the cops. Fucking badass! ...

Hitchens versus Donohue

I love how Bill Donohue's best argument is that atheists are somehow dogmatic for not believing the claims of Christianity. Yeah, I feel so close minded anytime I dismiss claims made without evidence... There are many Christians out there who are convinced there is a mountain of evidence suggesting their beliefs are true, but in fact, like all other religions, most of it is simply make-believe. That a high ...

How much control does the media have over us?

One of my recent tirades against Fox News prompted me to write about the degree of control mainstream media has over society. This piece is not meant to lay all the blame of society on their shoulders; rather it is an invitation to consider the fact that perhaps we do not all make rational choices based on a careful examination of the evidence.

If you've ever wondered just why the religious right hates abortion so much, maybe this new study published in LiveScience can shed some light. According to the June issue of The Journal of Health and Social Behavior, young unmarried women graduating from private religious schools are actually more likely t ...

Alberta is now worse than Texas

I don't like you, Alberta. You aren't like the other provinces in this country which are generally reasonable. In the rest of Canada, religion and government don't mix. We generally try to be tolerant, polite, and nice. Now you apparently all want to be cowboys, having gone ahead and passed Bill 44. Congratulations, you have the distinction of being worse than Texas when it comes to education. How is this e ...

10 reasons why Superman is better than Jesus

This article made me want to include a little list of why Superman is better than Jesus. I've made a comparative list so I can definitively prove the last son of Krypton is superior to the King of Kings in almost every way. Superman has saved the planet for destruction numerous times. Jesus has threatened to return and bring on the end of the earth with him, but so far is a fucking 'no-show'. Jesus performe ...
