Cardinal thinks we are not “fully human”

I could easily argue any man who is part of an institution that willfully and maliciously covered up sexual abuse against kids is not fully human, but that would be unfair: I don't know anything about this guy, just like he has no idea what I'm like. The only difference here is he feels I'm some sort of monster for not believing in his fairy tales. Sounds like a healthy attitude to me... ...

Ray Comfort is annoying and wrong

I feel sympathy for Scott, who tries his best to explain to Ray that a building or a painting are bad analogies to use when trying to prove something as intangible as God. Ray does the familiar shtick of trying to dumbfound Scott in order to slip in his 'God in the Gaps' bullshit. The question I always find the most insulting is Ray's tactic of asking a person if they have ever stolen something in their liv ...

Jesus and his blood money

According to this guy, everyone owes Jesus a shitload of money. He did 'buy us back' from the Devil after all...Also, did anyone get creeped out when the kid yells back "he shed his blood for us!" when asked the kind of currency necessary for such a transaction. What kind of psycho thinks that sadistic bullshit is appropriate for kids? ...

Stupid things smart Christians believe

Here's an article dealing with the 'stupid' things Christians sometimes believe will affect their faith. Pastor Osborne claims too many of his parishioners were complaining about having a bad life despite their Christian status. This often leads them, he says, to have a spiritual meltdown when they realize having faith does not protect them from harm anymore than unbelievers. Now it's nice of Osborne to tel ...

Spark of life re-created in lab

One of the final 'bastions' of religion is the notion life is inherently too complex to have formed on its own, and would have required the nimble fingers of creation to exist. It's a popular notion that continues to be tested, and recently a team at the University of Manchester have successfully found a process that can transform organic molecules into a sequence similar to that of RNA. The difficulty faci ...

Another blow for Mormons

One of the crappy things about being a fairly recent religion is without the benefit of long stretches of time, the claims made in your religious tomes can usually be tested. Take for instance the Book of Mormon and its claim Native Americans are descendants of Lehi, a prophet who immigrated from Jerusalem to the Americas. Despite the fact there is no archeological evidence to support this claim, many Mormo ...

2010: the year of the Bible

When I think about the year 2010, the first thing that comes to mind is the sequel to 2001 A Space Odyssey. It makes me think about how optimistic Arthur C. Clark was in terms of the human race's engineering skills. Let's just say it's doubtful we'll be sending anyone to Jupiter. In fact, rather than being a scientific Mecca, the world seems to have taken a nasty turn towards superstitious belief. Case in p ...
