Blow your mind with Scientology

You know what I love about Dianetics? The fact that the cover is an exploding volcano. I take it to imply that they will blow your mind. Just look at the woman talking about relationships; obviously she suffered severe head trauma at one time or another. How else can you explain that she got relationship advice from a science fiction writer? ...

Tired Christian claim #3: The evidence for the existence of Jesus is overwhelming

I've been seeing this argument popping up more and more often these days. It's a relative newcomer in terms of claim, but it certainly is one that's worth discussing. Last article I mentioned how the word 'faith' is a misnomer; I've never actually met a Christian who did not think there was a mountain of evidence supporting their claim that Jesus of Nazareth was a God. Really the only time you'll actually h ...

Orthodox Jews sue over light sensor

I actually have a few friends who observe the Sabbath, refusing to use any electronic devices, perform any kind of labor, and not even touching any money. I've always found their customs to be rather silly, but then again, that's how I feel about most types of rituals. I don't have a problem with people doing what they want, so long as they keep it to themselves. Well, that's not good enough for some. An Or ...

Religious wacko facing dismisal sues school district

You can't keep a good psycho down, apparently. John Freshwater is an eighth grade science teacher who denies evolution, used a high voltage lab tool in class to burn crosses on the arms of students, and told them homosexuals are evil sinners. The district first suspended him after hearing the allegations, and announced last June (yeah, the story isn't exactly "fresh" here) they were canning him. Now Freshwa ...

Faith schools in Britain try to defend their existence

When I was a young child, I was sent to a Catholic primary school. It was the only way my parents could ensure that I went to an English institution. The trade off was every day, the teachers would force us to say a morning prayer, and class time was occasionally devoted to learning about Jesus. It was insanely boring and annoying, but I got over it. I already knew how to read and write before I got to clas ...

Hot girl smokes a joint, drinks a Coke, and muses on death

Anytime I think about the afterlife, I'm reminded of the book, The History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters, where one of the characters talks about the eventual monotony of eternal life (I recommend reading the chapter on the excommunication of the woodworm for a good laugh). I can't imagine how terrible it would be to never die. There is a time when everything, no matter how awesome, begins to lose its lus ...

No more Mr. Nice Guy

I try to be polite. I really do. I have the bad habit, unfortunately, of saying the most offensive things to people without fully realizing it. So for the most part, I've accepted the fact that my opinions and ideas are unpopular with a large segment of society, and the people who happen to hear or read what I have to say will, at times, be deeply offended. My vitriol will sometimes bring the ire of many wh ...

Religion and science don’t conflict, apparently

Apparently, the perception that religion has been impeding science is wrong! That's according to this article in The Guardian, which claims the commonly held belief that science has a history of being suppressed and challenged by religion is false. Unfortunately, if you're looking for any compelling arguments in this article, you won't find any -- you'll be better served by reading this interview with biolo ...
