Moron thinks missing link isn’t “human enough”

I enjoy reading the Examiner; not because I find the articles inspired or instructive, but because they have a large variety of editorials written by all kinds of 'believers'. The latest 'gem' comes from one Larry Amon, who is the president of a non-profit Christian ministry, and who states, quite boldly, that the missing link is a giant bust. His reasoning: Ida just doesn't look like a person, and therefor ...

Missing link is found

Remember all those stupid arguments you had regarding evolution with your uncle? He kept asking you "well, if we come from monkeys, where's the missing link?" Well, you can now tell him the missing link is currently in Oslo, Norway. Ida, as the fossil is called, is perhaps one of the greatest fossil finds of our time. The previously oldest fossil of our ancestors was Lucy, who clocked in at roughly 3.4 mill ...

Belief is not innocuous

A few months ago I wrote about the plight of Nigerian children who are accused of being witches. These kids are often beaten, abandoned, or killed because their parents or members of the community accuse them of being possessed by Satan. The problem is only getting worse, with an estimated 15,000 kids in Nigeria alone accused of being witches. Even though there are a number of organizations working to undo ...

Another fucking Cheesus

Let's be honest here and just say that the story of how these two people found a Jesus shaped Cheetos is about as mundane, stupid and annoying as you can get. Is the news day so slow this kind of story takes precedence over the conflict in the Middle East, or child witches in Nigeria? Hey journalists, look a bit deeper for a story, will you? ...

Publishers in Britain fear terrorism in response to “Jewel of Medina” book

I hate the use of the word 'war' in reference to any particular conflict. When I think of a war, I think of the innocents who suffer at the hands of sadistic and murderous zealots that would do anything for power.

Because we often fear for our very lives, this removes our natural impulse to be cooperative a ...

Tell me more about these dirty pictures, Marty

I have a simple life philosophy: I generally don't take sexual advice from puppets. I think it stems from my suspicion that they don't possess any actual genitalia, and therefore lack the necessary understanding to comprehend the tremendous pleasure and joy they provide. Or maybe it's because I was raped by a creep marionette. I'm not sure.. ...

Why this guy cares

It's a pretty concise list of why atheists generally care about religion despite refusing to believe in any. I can't say I dig the music, but hey, I'm a critical jackass. ...

Courts step in, force child to undergo chemotherapy

There's always a story involving a family that refuses to treat their child for religious reasons. As we speak, one mother is facing charges in the preventable death of a young girl with diabetes, and another family in Minneapolis are being forced to give chemotherapy to their son. Colleen Hauser believes in a New Age religion called Nemenhah, a kind of glossy 'Native American' style cult (founded by a know ...
