An open letter to Sam Harris

Perhaps I'm not the best person to offer advice on how to deal with trolls. My site gets relatively light traffic, and the people who visit tend to be way too polite, nice, or otherwise supportive. My lack of popularity in a sense has shielded me from the kind of criticism you're reglarly subjected to. Still, I feel I understand why your positions have been so villified, and why you often find yourself outs ...

Where was God at the Aurora shooting?

There's a predictable pattern to the way religious people deal with tragedy. Undoubtedly, this kind of horrific thing makes them question the dogma they've been spoon fed their entire life - that an omnipotent being cares for their well being, especially when it seems so senseless; the evils of the world throw this 'loving god' thing back in their face, and they don't like it. Then come the rationalizations ...

Kickstarter campaign cancelled, moved to Indiegogo

I think Plato said it best: "Be kind to everyone you meet, for they are fighting a hard battle". My 'hard battle' was having to shut down the Kickstarter campaign 24 hours before we were set to receive almost 20k in support monies. The reason this had to be done is best explained by my American partner, Lena: My name's Lena, I was Jacob's American partner on this campaign. I want to personally apologize to ...

This is what a Creationist ‘argument’ looks like

There's a part of me (a rather small and insignificant part) who admires the time and effort creationists employ trying to refute evolution. Think of how much time and effort these morons put into trying to prove that their invisible friend is in fact responsible for all the diversity of life on Earth. It's an ambitious goal to say the least, but do you know what makes it easier? Inventing shit! If Evolutio ...

Kickstarter Campaign Final Week

Well, it's the final 7 days to pre-order a copy of Bible Stories, and for those of you interested in some of the 'deluxe' packages (the ones that net your illustrated face in the book), you'd better act fast: There's only 10 spots left of 20! You don't want to miss out simply because you enjoy buying things at the last minute. Remember, Kickstarter doesn't actually charge you until after the project is fund ...

Dinosaurs are Satan’s way of deceiving us!

I know this question wasn't asked of me, but I want to answer it anyway: I'm a little shocked. She says she is a Christian, but the Bible doesn't say anything about dinosaurs. Should I let him keep them, as long as he understands that dinosaurs aren't real? Even the PBS shows that he watches talk about dinosaurs and evolution, and how the scientists found these "bones" but the Bible doesn't say that God eve ...

Creepy Mormon ceremony caught on video

It doesn't help that the voice sounds like someone who kidnapped your loved ones and is now asking for ransom money. This is a rare opportunity to see their little dogma in action for yourself without having to let them know anything important about you. Take a look before someone tries to take this down. ...

A game show based on the Bible?

Are you familiar with the Bible and still mysteriously think it's the word of God? Well, there's a new trivia game for you hosted by the King of Rednecks himself, Jeff Foxworthy, called "American Bible Challenge". Fresh off his last terrible game show (you may remember it was all about humiliating adults by proving a 6th grader knew more trivia), this new one aims to pit teams of believers against one anoth ...

Checkmate, atheists!

If you're like me, you get a kick out of reading articles by religious people who claim to have the perfectly crafted argument which will finally win us over to the side of superstitious nonsense. Barring the serious amount of head trauma needed for such a conversion, I read these articles because they're a small window into the tortured logic of believers. Perhaps there's a part of me still waiting for som ...
