Annoying proselytizer is canned, involves courts

Penn Jillette said something I liked; he said he doesn't respect anyone who isn't proselytizing. He feels there is something genuinely good about it, and I generally agree: if you have an idea you think is great, tell people about it. There is, however, a limit to how much preaching is acceptable. You should not, like this man, do it to coworkers trying to get their jobs done without you bothering them ever ...

Don’t think she gets it

I like the first 10 seconds of this clip, as the 'Fox Noise' TV hostess seems not to understand the concept of irony. Yes, they want to use a Bible verse to prove their point: just because you're religious doesn't mean you're moral. Still, it's amusing all atheists should be regarded as nothing more than 'trolls'. Isn't that nice? Even legitimate dissent is regarded as insulting to these people. Grow up alr ...

Bigot Pastor slams Travoltas

I get a kick when one religion claims another belief system is totally stupid and illogical. The gargantuan effort of trying to make someone else seem silly when your own beliefs are farcical never ceases to amaze me. It's akin to saying "that guy's is freakin' crazy, man! He eats his poo raw. Everyone knows you have to cook it!" Brother Harry Hardwick argues that Travolta neglected to seek treatment for hi ...

Don’t believe in magic: believe in miracles, dummy!

As many of you know, I'm a staunch supporter of the science of evolution. Although it's a powerful yet simple idea, for many religious people, it's simply the most damning and damaging idea ever conceived. Despite the fact even the Papacy has finally and reluctantly agreed it does indeed exist, it doesn't stop people who have zero idea about how evolution works to deny it. I've read many articles and blogs ...

Science!

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an extremely cool scientist, and a great orator. Here he is talking about his book and how Apophis is going to slam into the Pacific unless we get off our asses. Rather a good incentive to get behind science funding, wouldn't you say? ...

Does the Religious Right exist?

There's an interesting article here which argues there is, in fact, no Religious Right. The arguments are convincing; it does sound at first glance there has been an over simplification on whether or not a discernable movement is actually present. It would seem illogical to assume there are secret clandestine meetings involving hundreds of pastors and clergymen, all agreeing on the best course of action to ...

Understanding the reasons for religious arguments

I'm beginning to understand intellectually debating religion is a giant waste of time. The blog Atheist Revolution has an interesting article on the types of 'religious trolls' who frequently comment in atheist's sites and the tactics they use. However, there's something important here that is not being mentioned: what exactly is their motivation? It's easy to dismiss trolls as simple troublemakers who want ...
