Sad, sad numbers

Here's a depressing fact: a new Gallup poll released on the eve of Charles Darwin's 200th birthday showed only 39% of the population believes in evolution. 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 ...

Octuplet mom looks to God for assistance

Nadya Suleman has an obsession. Since she was a teenager, she's dreamed of being a mother. Nadya has recently given birth to octuplets, adding 8 children to a house that already has 6 of them.

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 ...

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 ...

Psychics take advantage of failing economy

This piece on CNN.com has me fuming.

Texas teacher fired for atheism and liberal attitudes

I know I have fans who live in Texas, so I don't want any of you to be too offended when I say it's a seriously messed up place. The latest bit of bad news comes from Brookland, where a teacher by the name of Richard Mullens was fired because parents and other faculty members thought he was an atheist, and way too 'liberal'. There's no indication he's an atheist, and Mr. Mullens has chosen to keep his relig ...

Jesus loves you, but his dad thinks you’re a shit

Here's a young man trying to explain how a supposedly Omni-Benevolent God can possibly send his children to the bowels of Hell forever. It's the same doctrine expounded on by St. Paul; you choose to go to hell yourself by not loving him, or his damn son. Well, my simple response is no supernatural being deserves love if the punishment for ambivalence or mistrust is an eternity of pain. Sorry guys, the idea ...
