While we are loath to share the moniker of skeptic with them (since they seem so poor at it), they are skeptics nevertheless, albeit crappy ones. While many present themselves as logical and objective, they cannot see past their own prejudice against government and other powerful institutions and how this ...

I don’t think you’re done reading, pal

Hey look, it's an atheist who converted to religion. All it took for him was: a) To read one book about atheism b) To think that one book would give him the needed skepticism to reject the joke that is C.S.

Answers in Genesis writes hilarious letter to atheists

For some odd reason, I love the idea that there are religious believers out there who try to convert atheists back to religion. I can't imagine a more pointless exercise. They really think there must be some magical argument to 'win us' back to the fold. They can't understand our decision not to believe in God is the result of years of slow and gradual change, ultimately leading to the conclusion that the p ...

You all know by now that the educational system in Louisiana is rapidly deteriorating thanks to Governor Bobby Jindal and his relentless crusade to institute voucher programs that end up benefiting religiously run schools. He may have come out recently begging for the GOP not to become the 'stupid party', but he's actively working to ensure his constituents are ever more ignorant about the real world. The p ...

There's a familiar pattern that arises in these parts: the predominately Muslim population has a few altercations with other religious groups that are Christian, and suddenly the lone person is accused of blasphemy and is usually beaten, followed by the ...

So, what's more embarrassing: not being able to properly answer the challenges of a 11 year old, or needing to try and bully your way out of answering his question?
