Not allowed to be blasphemous?

A lot of you will disagree with me on this one, but the UN is possibly one of the most useless and corrupt organizations in existence today. The ideology behind the UN is nice enough, but in execution, it has shown itself to be inefficient, blind, and often backward. This new resolution to make blasphemy illegal is just another example of how corrupt the UN is. The law calls making "acts of hatred, discrimi ...

Jesus loves spanking

Here's an interesting discovery from Unreasonable Faith, concerning pastor John Piper who is convinced that if alive, Jesus would be spanking his kids like it's 33 AD. I'm not a fan of corporal punishment, but I was occasionally spanked as a kid and I didn't get screwed up too badly. It's not the spanking itself that worries me in Piper's case, but his reasoning behind it: Deep down, does this person believ ...

Party is over; it’s Ash Wednesday!

It's Ash Wednesday today. It's the first day of Lent, the supposed time Jesus walked around being tempted by the devil. It's called Ash Wednesday because of the custom of putting a cross of ash on someone's foreheads as a sign of repentance (looks more like finger painting to me), and it's the beginning of 40 days of personal sacrifice (not literally, of course). I had to look up this quirky day on Wikipedi ...

Hot Chick’s search for Islam

She seems both highly naive, submissive and also highly attractive sexually. This is probably a dangerous combination, so I can understand why she would go for Islam: after all, Islam means submission, so in a weird way, this probably speaks to her. I love how she claims to have compared only two religions, and that now she's 100% certain Islam must be correct. I don't want to be mean here, but I doubt stro ...

Bombs away!

Unreasonable faith asks the following question: Who would Jesus bomb? His answer: everyone! Although I agree with him that most fundamentalists are simply aching for Armageddon, I can't blindly assert they would seek to annihilate the rest of us. Take, for example, the Branch Davidians. If you don't remember these guys, they were the loony group who built a huge compound in Waco Texas that was eventually bu ...

Tell Ottawa what you think!

I'd be a bad Canadian if I didn't attempt to encourage all of you Canuck fans to get off your asses and take part in the letter writing campaign to convince Ottawa to allow atheist ads on their buses. As our nation's capital, it's their obligation to see all minorities are represented equally. I don't give a shit if they are worried about the ads offending people; you cannot have a democracy and a right to ...

Bristol Palin is a liar

the easiest way to tell if someone is lying is to look at their eyes. Looking down and to the right (your left) is usually an indication that they are not genuinely remembering something. Try and use this trick to see if you can spot the truth from the lie. I'm not a spy, but there are a few tricks I've learned from watching interrogation tactics over the years which lead me to believe most of what Bristol ...

The LOLcats of Atheism

Here's a site which has my interest: LOLTheism, which pokes fun at religion using the LOLcats template of humor. It works pretty damn well. I humbly offer to you their latest entry: The best caption has to be they'll steal anything that isn't nailed down ...

Solving all of the world’s problems with pain!

I get the occasional nutjob letter telling me I have to let Jesus in or my family might get a cosmic bitchslap from God, but PZ Myers is on a whole other level. Here are the highlights of the latest insanity in an inbox: I have discovered that if you lay perfectly level on a firm mattress, with no pillow. Then relax and let gravity push you flat. Do this for 3 hours day/night...Take painkillers if you have ...
