Tell Ottawa what you think!

I'd be a bad Canadian if I didn't attempt to encourage all of you Canuck fans to get off your asses and take part in the letter writing campaign to convince Ottawa to allow atheist ads on their buses. As our nation's capital, it's their obligation to see all minorities are represented equally. I don't give a shit if they are worried about the ads offending people; you cannot have a democracy and a right to ...

Bristol Palin is a liar

the easiest way to tell if someone is lying is to look at their eyes. Looking down and to the right (your left) is usually an indication that they are not genuinely remembering something. Try and use this trick to see if you can spot the truth from the lie. I'm not a spy, but there are a few tricks I've learned from watching interrogation tactics over the years which lead me to believe most of what Bristol ...

The LOLcats of Atheism

Solving all of the world’s problems with pain!

I get the occasional nutjob letter telling me I have to let Jesus in or my family might get a cosmic bitchslap from God, but PZ Myers is on a whole other level. Here are the highlights of the latest insanity in an inbox: I have discovered that if you lay perfectly level on a firm mattress, with no pillow. Then relax and let gravity push you flat. Do this for 3 hours day/night...Take painkillers if you have ...

Cardinals lose faith in Pope

I've written several times about why Catholics need to abandon their institution, especially with the shit the current Pope keeps pulling. Forget the terribly offensive and ignoble acts of pardoning a Holocaust denier, or quoting a 14th century Byzantine Emperor's hate speech. These are small potatoes compared to his edict to cover up child abuse scandals at all costs, and now even his trusted Cardinals hav ...

Suzanne Somers is insane

The quest for youth, beauty, and long life makes freaks out of people. Chief among these 'insane ones' is Suzanne Somers, who takes a whopping 60 fucking pills every day to try and stay young. That's not including her estrogen and progesterone cream she applies, as well as her daily vaginal injections. Yes, that's right folks, she pokes her own vagina with hormones in the hopes of living forever. She also t ...

Help these guys out!

I get frustrated once in a while when I meet someone who has a limited understanding of evolution, but it's a whole other bag if you live somewhere that actually dismisses it! That's why a small fledgling group called The Southern Skeptical Society is trying to organize to help fight the irrational tendencies of anything south of the Mason-Dixon line. If any of you are there or know someone who is, then vis ...

Can I offer you a peanut, or would you rather Ecstasy?

An interesting editorial from NewScientist.com asking whether or not Ecstasy is safer than peanuts. His answer: hells yes! The amount of deaths due to allergies is much higher than deaths caused as a result of the casual consumption of the drug. Does that mean it isn't dangerous? Well, technically, you could slip and fall and kill yourself while in the shower, but it certainly doesn't mean you shouldn't was ...

A message to agnostics

If you've ever called yourself an agnostic, then you should head over to the Radical Atheist's blog. He's written an article on how agnosticism is compatible with atheism. Here is a quote from the article: I see no inconsistency in being both agnostic and an atheist. I'm an agnostic in the methods I use to discern truth (small a) and appreciate reality. I'm an atheist in my opinion on theism. I do not cont ...
