Can I offer you a peanut, or would you rather Ecstasy?

An interesting editorial from NewScientist.com asking whether or not Ecstasy is safer than peanuts. His answer: hells yes! The amount of deaths due to allergies is much higher than deaths caused as a result of the casual consumption of the drug. Does that mean it isn't dangerous? Well, technically, you could slip and fall and kill yourself while in the shower, but it certainly doesn't mean you shouldn't was ...

A message to agnostics

If you've ever called yourself an agnostic, then you should head over to the Radical Atheist's blog. He's written an article on how agnosticism is compatible with atheism. Here is a quote from the article: I see no inconsistency in being both agnostic and an atheist. I'm an agnostic in the methods I use to discern truth (small a) and appreciate reality. I'm an atheist in my opinion on theism. I do not cont ...

Google Earth: Atlantis edition

Anytime someone discovers artifacts underwater, you immediately have a bunch of morons asserting the lost city of Atlantis has been found. That's why an unusual looking image in Google Earth was the perfect excuse for the 'true believers' to make that claim again. Luckily, Skeptico has a simple answer to debunk this stupid claim: ...the image is almost certainly an artifact of the mapping process. The under ...

Big announcement March 1st

This weekend was huge for Ryan and I. We started talking about the future of our blogging 'empire' and we've realized there is a great deal of untapped potential in TGA we've largely been ignoring. After all, how the heck can anyone make a living just writing about religion all day, right? Well, it turns out we think we've figured out a way, and this Sunday we'll be recording a special Good Atheist podcast ...

Apparently, I have no passion

It always surprises me how little religious people actually understand atheism. I believe it has something to do with the fact they can't possibly imagine why anyone would choose to reject the notion of God. It must be doubly confusing if your entire life is defined by your faith. It's this fundamental lack of understanding that's behind the latest claim from Jake the Evangelical, who says atheists can't po ...

Bristol Palin thinks abstinence is not realistic

Well, here's something I never thought I would actually write: Bristol Palin actually seems to understand abstinence teaching is "not realistic at all". Yes, those are her words. The unwed mother and daughter of the most embarrassingly stupid and incompetent Vice Presidential nominee ever, Gov. Sarah Palin, revealed this tidbit of wisdom during an interview for Fox's "On the Record". The family is trying ha ...

Time Magazine thinks religion is healthy

I'm tired of magazines continuously talking about how faith is good for your health, or how it makes people feel better. You almost feel like there is a salesman at work, trying to coax you into going to church. I've already written on the notion being religious makes you live longer. So does cutting off your testicles. I don't know about you other fellows, but I'd rather die with a smile on my face. Time i ...

Hard core science!

Here's something that will make you smile. A professor is claiming he can prove the existence of God using what he calls 'hard core science'. Yea, I know you're all impressed with his nomenclature, but there's more. He also claims quantum physics can prove the birth of Jesus, and the resurrection story. It seems like everyone under the sun loves to use quantum mechanics to justify their crackpot ideas. The ...
