UN should protect people, not institutions

Here's an interesting article from The Economist that deals with the UN's resolution to make defamation of religion illegal. We're all aware of how toothless the UN really is, but it doesn't change the fact this resolution attempts to protect religious institutions instead of individuals. Think of it this way; when the UN was created shortly after the end of the Second World War, world governments realized ...

Hulu pulls Family Guy atheist episode

I don't quite know what's going on, but it looks as though the episode has gone missing. The site claims there are copyright issues, and yet every single other episode is available. It seems highly suspect to me that the only one to disappear is the broadcast dealing with atheism... ...

New Scientist sees through the deception in Texas

There's more info from the New Scientist about the proposed changes to the science textbooks over in Texas, and it doesn't look too promising. The Board voted to completely remove the age of the universe from the textbooks, and more importantly, they claimed students will not be penalized if they subscribe to a specific opinion on science. In other words, if a student answers on a test that the earth is 600 ...

This man is a genius!

I see more and more of these sorts of videos on YouTube, mostly because many  very stupid people are upset that atheists are winning the God debate. So long as I can keep laughing at them, I'll continue to post them up. Best moment in this video is when he argues God is merely invisible, like air. Move over Thomas Aquinas; the world's greatest theologian is on the loose! ...

Exchange student nightmare

Think about how paralyzing it must be to go to another country as an exchange student only to learn your host's parents are crazy fundamentalists trying to convert you. That's what this kid had to live through, and despite the annoyance, he seemed more upset at the fact he had to escape their clutches and leave them feeling hurt. One part in particular was telling about the true motivations of some people: ...

Christian movies are hilarious

This movie looks like it's Step up 2 the Streets meets End of Days. I'm amused anyone thought making this combo was a good idea, but I'm especially appreciative about how unintentionally hilarious it turned out. I must now officially watch this. ...

The Godfather Dilemma

I don't have very many religious friends, so I haven't often been put in a position where my beliefs were really challenged. I received an email from a friend recently concerning a very interesting dilemma he's facing (I'm including most of the letter intact since James is an excellent writer): [T]here's something atheism-related that I'd be interested to get your input on. In fact, if you feel it's a topic ...

Britain busy with debaptisms

Last week, the Nation Secular Society in England was busy debaptising over 1500 people. If you are like me and wonder what the hell happens at a "debaptism", Religious Intelligence has the story: The recipient of the certificate declares they "reject all [the Church's] Creeds and all other such superstition in particular, the perfidious belief that any baby needs to be cleansed by Baptism of alleged Origina ...

Saudi women are becoming bold

I am not a rebel. Although I like to think I am controversial, in reality if push came to shove, I would probably retreat to the safety of conformity rather than suffer an ignoble fate. It's why I find the following story so striking: It's an article in the Saudi Gazette about all girl coffee shops, which is where today's young Saudi girls are going to let loose, have fun, and enjoy life. All of this is hig ...
