Irony, thy name is Islam

Imagine you're Muslim, and you want to show people that your religion isn't the violent, backwards faith the mainstream media portrays. Starting your own English TV station centering on your religion is probably a reasonably good start. Bridges TV was such a project. It featured shows such as Democracy Now, a cooking show called Veggie Table, and the saccharine sounding Talking Peace. In a twisted bit of ir ...

What’s the harm?

Last week on the podcast, I spoke about poor Kara Neuman and her tragic death resulting from her parents praying rather than giving her insulin. While doing so, I mentioned a site that chronicled the deaths caused by superstition. I finally found the url, so if you want to know the kind of harm faith can do, then you need to visit this site, www.whatstheharm.net Depressing to say the least. ...

Getting it monstrously wrong

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article calling for Catholics to abandon the church in light of the recent news Pope Benedict XVI was behind the cover up of child abuse scandals. Obviously, I didn't actually think any Catholics would hear me out. I mean, I am a filthy heathen after all. I'm finding it difficult, however, to stay silent for long about the general attitude some Catholics have about the revelation ...

What is so frustrating is roughly 36% of the respondent cited they had no opinion. Not having an opinion about evolution is the equivalent of not really caring if the Earth revolves around the sun. I'm sure it doesn't affect your daily life, but this is ...

The eyes of the nation are on her, but I think ...

When religious freedom turns to child neglect

There are currently an estimated 170 million people worldwide who suffer from diabetes. A few decades ago, this disease was destroying lives. Children diagnosed would slowly fade away, often dying of starvation even though they were eating plenty of food. The discovery of insulin, and later its manufacture, has allowed what would otherwise be a deadly disease to become only an inconvenience for those who su ...

Atheists responsible for terrorism, apparently

Remember this guy? He keeps appearing all over the place, trying to pimp his book, The Atlas of Creation. It's really just a glorified picture book with a shitload of inaccuracies, lies, and just plain old ignorance. I normally try and ignore the words and pronunciations of unmitigated fools and liars, but the amount of bullshit coming out of this Adnan Oktar is simply too much to bear. Here is one of his i ...
