Atheist Pride Day

I received an invite on Facebook to join Atheist Pride Day, which is just another version of the 'Out Campaign' for atheism, and it includes the big scarlet 'A' that Richard Dawkins has popularized. I'm fine with the idea of showing pride in atheism, but I'm not really down with how this particular campaign is being handled. I guess I hate the idea of an image or symbol. From a design point of view, I find ...

Nightline to debate the existence of Satan

It's funny how little TV time atheists actually get. You would think we made bad guests or something. Nightline is having a debate on the existence of Satan, and the only people engaged in this discussion are ones who have no real understanding of the natural world. The 'No' side has Deepak Chopra, the New Age moron who thinks nature had to be intelligently designed because of its complexity. Also on the No ...

Experimenting with bonus radio show

I'm still trying a few different things for the bonus radio show, and I thought it might be a good idea if I made them a little more involved and personal. That's why for tonight's podcast, I'm asking you guys to suggest topics you would like Ryan and me to discuss. I figure this way, the patrons of the show will be able to play a much bigger role in dictating the pace and subjects you would like to hear ou ...

Watch your dicks, fellas

Here's a little article courtesy of Boing Boing about the hysteria over 'penis thieves' in Africa. If you've never heard about it, it's the modern equivalent of a witch hunt. It usually starts when panic is stirred up when baseless accusations are launched at undesirables. The whole thing usually ends up with a few deaths caused by an angry and frightened mob. It's an old superstition dating back to ancient ...

Does it take faith to be an atheist?

I can't tell you how many times I'm 'accused' by a person of faith that my label of atheism somehow implies I must have faith in the idea to the same degree they do. I want to try and clear the air here, and explain why my belief in the non-existence of God is not a position of faith, but is simply the most rational interpretation of the available evidence. Historically, I can admit atheism is fairly new to ...

Canadian Science Minister fail

As some of you may have heard, the Canadian Science Minister, Gary Goodyear, is an idiot. I mean this of course in the most literal sense. He was asked a few days ago whether or not he believed in evolution. At first, he refused to answer the question, but after being pressured by the PM's office, he came back with "of course I believe in evolution". Well, here's what his interpretation of it is: I do belie ...

NHS tries to deal with female circumcision

Human beings are capable of some gruesome acts, and one of the more disturbing practices that is still commonly done is 'female circumcision'. In case you've never heard of it, it's basically the mutilation of the vagina in an effort to permanently scar a woman's genitalia in order to prevent her from having any sexual desires. There are some cultures that cut off the clitoris thinking it grows into a gigan ...

Pope thinks condoms will make AIDS epidemic worse

In the Western world, we are mostly isolated from the deadly effect of the AIDS virus. Those who have it usually don't make much publicity for themselves, and some hide it completely. In Africa, however, the disease is a plague that is slowly killing off their population. It makes orphans of children who then starve to death; it cripples food production as farmers are too sick to properly harvest the land. ...

Karen Armstrong at TED

Karen Armstrong is a brilliant woman, and her books on God are both highly interesting and profoundly insightful. I must admit, however, that as studies of religion have progressed, her focus has centered on compassion. She views this notion as universal, and believes the best elements of religion can be enhanced when the focus is placed on compassion rather than dogma. It's a nice notion, but it ignores th ...

Disturbing Information

I found this link and thought some of you might be interested in it. It's a detailed list of police raids that have caused the deaths of innocent people, or resulted in other similar tragedies. Although the CATO institute is a bit too libertarian for my taste (including their reverence for total 'laissez faire' capitalism), they nevertheless are a watchdog for abuse of power in government. Here's a few exam ...
