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 ...

Psychics take advantage of failing economy

This piece on CNN.com has me fuming. It's a profile of psychic Roxanne Usleman (if you plan on visiting this link, do yourself a favor and turn off your sound) who is giving consultations to high powered clients looking for a insight into their uncertain futures. It's another example that it isn't only lonely and uneducated women who spend hundreds of dollars on these fraudsters. CNN does what every typical ...

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 ...

Obvious study makes obvious claim

Here is a study that found smart people typically are far less religious than their peers. Does anyone still doubt people who are more educated are simply less likely to believe in God? Perhaps there are still those who would deny this. I suppose it makes the religious feel as though it's an attempt to call them stupid. I'm not quite sure. Either way, I consider the matter resolved. The reason why educated ...

Michael Phelps is human

Apparently, winning a bunch of Gold medals at the Olympics means your entire life goes under a microscope. Michael Phelps learned this the hard way the other day when he was caught on tape smoking weed from a bong. He admitted it and apologized, but I'm sure that won't prevent the moral police from giving him a hard time about it. What I find hypocritical is if had he been caught binge drinking, the newspap ...
