Party is over; it’s Ash Wednesday!

It's Ash Wednesday today. It's the first day of Lent, the supposed time Jesus walked around being tempted by the devil. It's called Ash Wednesday because of the custom of putting a cross of ash on someone's foreheads as a sign of repentance (looks more like finger painting to me), and it's the beginning of 40 days of personal sacrifice (not literally, of course). I had to look up this quirky day on Wikipedi ...

Hot Chick’s search for Islam

She seems both highly naive, submissive and also highly attractive sexually. This is probably a dangerous combination, so I can understand why she would go for Islam: after all, Islam means submission, so in a weird way, this probably speaks to her. I love how she claims to have compared only two religions, and that now she's 100% certain Islam must be correct. I don't want to be mean here, but I doubt stro ...

Bombs away!

Unreasonable faith asks the following question: Who would Jesus bomb? His answer: everyone! Although I agree with him that most fundamentalists are simply aching for Armageddon, I can't blindly assert they would seek to annihilate the rest of us. Take, for example, the Branch Davidians. If you don't remember these guys, they were the loony group who built a huge compound in Waco Texas that was eventually bu ...

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

Here's a site which has my interest: LOLTheism, which pokes fun at religion using the LOLcats template of humor. It works pretty damn well. I humbly offer to you their latest entry: The best caption has to be they'll steal anything that isn't nailed down ...

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 ...
