Disparaging creationism violates the First Amendment

I had never heard of James Corbett until today, when I read a letter he wrote in response to a judge finding him guilty of violating the First Amendment by speaking his mind. I know it sounds as though I wrote that wrong, but apparently disparaging creationism during class time is a big no-no in America. Corbett was sued by one of his students, and lost in a federal court that found he had violated the Esta ...

Wally George is hilarious

Up until today, I had never heard of Wally George. Back in the the 1980s, Wally had a shitty little show on a UHF station. During one of his interviews, noted pacifist Blase Bonpane wigged out and flipped the interview desk in a fit of rage. The mainstream media picked up on it, and Wally found his 15 minutes of fame. His shtick was to invite people on his show and insult them for no good reason; as is evid ...

Stop indoctrinating kids

Here is a great article on the Independent asking the British government to stop forcing kids to engage in prayer. Since I'm not from the UK, the fact this is mandatory is new to me.

That time has now passed, however, and it's time for a change: I can understand why the unelected, faltering religio ...

See the world through a fundie’s glasses

I'm always on the lookout for cool/hilarious fundie websites, and today I found this guy: Steve Noble sounds like a repressed homosexual who seems to have a big hard-on for God. His website is well designed and obviously has plenty of TLC behind it. Unfortunately, Steve is completely insane, which is immediately obvious from his splash page, where we are invited to see the world through his glasses. Let's j ...

Sign this petition

I don't normally ask my readers to do this, but if you're Canadian and you're tired of all those 'deity' based religions getting all the benefits of tax exemption, go here and sign this petition. If you think it's utterly pointless to do so, remember the more we dilute the concept of religion, the more people will see it's all just a bunch of made up bullshit. ...

Taste my Jesus!

No, I don't think this guy really understands what 'evidence', 'science', and 'statistical probability' is all about. Just another example of how crazy Florida is, I guess. Don't think we've forgotten about you just because Texas is out-shining you in the stupidity department. ...
