More evil from the Catholic Church

There's always something controversial going on with Catholics. These guys are out of touch with modern life, and as a consequence, they always do something stupid and plain horrible enough to make the news. Today it's the archbishop Don Jose Cardoso Sobrinho who excommunicated the Brazilian doctors who performed an abortion on a 9 year old rape victim. Sobrinho has no concern over the rape itself, since he ...

Creationism in Hampshire (revised)

I had originally written this story under the mistaken assumption that it was in New Hampshire, when it was in fact in Hampshire, England! Thanks Glenn for the clarification. I suppose it was my prejudice that England would never stoop to such lows, but I have seen the error in my ways. Of all the places thinking about introducing creationist material into classrooms, the last place I thought it would show ...

Terrorism has different meanings

I read an interesting article on the Christian Science Monitor about the percentage of people in Muslim countries who favor bombing civilians, and the numbers reveal far more Americans are willing to commit this act than they are. If you need this put in perspective, consider the image we have in the West of a terrorist is a Muslim guy wearing a dynamite covered belt bomb, while in Muslim countries a terror ...

Stephen Fry is wonderful

Listen carefully to what he has to say, and you'll quickly find out why he's one of my favorite British intellectuals. It also helps that he's a comedian who doesn't take himself too seriously. ...

Now here’s a real list

I found this great list of 50 reasons why 'Bobbie-the-Jean' doesn't believe in Evolution. It's a brilliant bit of satire if I may say so myself. Here are the best ones: 3.) Because if I can't immediately understand how something works, then it must be bullshit. 20.) Because my mom dropped me on my head when I was a baby. 44.) Because I believe there is a strong comparison between designed inanimate objects ...

Religious affiliations are shifting

It's always interesting that perception does not usually reflect reality, specifically when it comes to religion. If you looked only at statistics, it would seem as religion were on a comeback, since studies have shown the average person attends church more often than in any period of American history. However, on the other side of the equation, it would appear that every state in the US has seen some signi ...

Why Christians visit atheist blogs

I'm not really in the habit of visiting Christian blogs. There is nothing about their viewpoint I haven't heard or  read a million times. Jesus is Lord, Jesus is the way, the light and the only salvation. I get it; you love the guy. The Proud Atheist recently asked "why do Christians visit atheist sites", and I thought I might put in my two cents. Christianity is a proselytizing religion. If you aren't spre ...

Nice ad…

Wow, and here I was complaining about how tame the atheist bus campaign message was. Islam: Submission to God reminds me why I revile this religion. Since God isn't actually around, the only thing you're submissive to is a dusty, poorly written tome that is completely incompatible with modern values. Oh, and graphic design FAIL! (props Friendly Atheist for the find) ...

Richard Dawkins interview

BBC News has an interesting and in depth interview with Richard Dawkins. I've read almost everything he's written over the years, so I guess that makes me a fan. Personally, I much prefer it when he talks about science than religion, but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't always interesting. Here's a highlight: As the observance of religion in our particular country has declined, we've seen the rise of pe ...
