Nice ad…

Wow, and here I was complaining about how tame the atheist bus campaign message was. Islam: Submission to God reminds me why I revile this religion. Since God isn't actually around, the only thing you're submissive to is a dusty, poorly written tome that is completely incompatible with modern values. Oh, and graphic design FAIL! (props Friendly Atheist for the find) ...

Richard Dawkins interview

BBC News has an interesting and in depth interview with Richard Dawkins. I've read almost everything he's written over the years, so I guess that makes me a fan. Personally, I much prefer it when he talks about science than religion, but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't always interesting. Here's a highlight: As the observance of religion in our particular country has declined, we've seen the rise of pe ...

Who would Jesus shoot?

Imagine a crazed gunman with a semi automatic walks in to your workplace and declares anyone who isn't a Christian is going to die. He turns around to you and asks your religion. What would you say? Most of us wouldn't hesitate to lie, but for some folks, that's the worst thing you could do. Derik Bonestroo decided on Thursday that he was going to purge the Eldora ski resort of non Christians, and when he w ...

How death works in Islam

Apparently, when I'm in the grave, two angels are going to hit me in the face with a hammer if I don't answer I am a Muslim. Then 90 hell snakes come in, and they will bite me unless I start praying to Allah. This is all very technical. Luckily this guy knows for sure what will happen, because Mohammad told him, and he never told a lie, right? Or was that George Washington? Oh yeah, and apparently this guy ...

Religious people are less stressed

There's a new study that seems to indicate religious people have less stress, and appear less worried about making mistakes than their secular counterparts. The study indicates something I've always known about religious people: they generally take a hands off attitude towards life. Think about this: when you are certain this life is only one form of existence, the only thing you have to worry about is plea ...

Biblically correct tours

This was an old video, but listening to these guys talk is painful. I love how this guy says "we're trained to think like evolutionists. We need to think like creationists". No, you really fucking don't, buddy. ...

The father and his 19-year-old son got into an argument on Sunday afternoon. That's when police said the father went to a car, got a knife and stabbed his son in the left buttock and fled. The son was taken to University of Maryland Med ...

Won’t someone think of the children?!

It doesn't surprise me that Latter Day Saints are always trying to destroy any bill that would allow gays to have equal rights. Here's an exerpt from one of their recent emails concerning a bill which would allow homosexuals to have recognized civil unions: The Civil Union Bill (HB 2234) has been scheduled for a hearing in the Youth and Family Committee this week on Thursday, March 5, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. in S ...
