Miss California’s church thinks homosexuals are child molesters

Some of you may wonder why I talk about gay rights on a site about atheism. You might also wonder why many atheist bloggers also defend the right for gays to marry. Perhaps some of you think they are unrelated issues. However, there is no denying the fact the reason gays are not treated as true members of society is because of religious intolerance which seeks to marginalize this group. I personally have a ...

More books on how atheists are ‘ignorant’

Normally I don't pay much attention to those who ceaselessly attack Dawkins and Hitchens, mostly because although I respect and enjoy their books, they are not the definitive works on the subject of atheism.

Animal testing is a hard reality

What I like about PZ Myers is he speaks his mind, and takes a stance on a variety of controversial subjects. Because he's a biologist by trade, he's passionate about defending animal testing. It's not a popular position, but as he mentions in his blog, the tactics of animal rights activists are sometimes completely disgraceful and dangerous. Take this incident that occurred in 2006: J. David Jentsch, a UCLA ...

Taliban moving closer to Islamabad

I'm not a fear monger, but right now, the whole world needs to pay attention to what is going on in Pakistan. Taliban militants are continuing their assault, and have had a series of victories that continue to move them closer to the capital of Pakistan. It's risen fears the country is on the brink of collapse, and the secular Awami National party is on the verge of being overrun. If you don't think that's ...
