On the legalization of prostitution

What are you supposed to do if you are asked to chose between two evils? We like to believe the decisions we make correspond to our morality, but there are often problems which arise in our modern world that have no adequate solution. In these circumstances, we must act pragmatically to ensure the consequences of our actions do not exacerbate an already difficult situation. If we can accept that the choices ...

The biggest legacy of the Bush years

The Bush presidency has been a disaster. Perhaps there are some of you who believe somehow, history will vindicate this man, but it is as clear to me today as it will be in 50 years; President Bush was the worst president in the history of the United States of America. It could be the fact his government was involved in perhaps the biggest scam in the world by convincing their blood drunk populace that Iraq ...

The real definition of marriage

There's been a lot of debate concerning the definition of marriage. I know many conservatives are offended guys like me call them on the fact that the real reason they dislike gays marrying is because they are homophobic. I'm accused of making blanket statements about conservatives, and of labeling people. Now, I want to make it clear to everyone that I'm not trying to make a person feel inferior for being ...

Religious people are easily frightened

TGA reader Ben sent me this link. It's from a Australian news site, and deals with the issue of having secular ethics as an option for primary school parents. Seems as though the staff and parents aren't too pleased about it: Research director Jenny Stokes said: "If you go there, where do you stop? What about witchcraft or Satanism? If you accredit humanism, then those things would have an equal claim to be ...

The Santa experiment

I don't have any children, although like any young adult, I've often contemplated how I would raise my own. I never particularly liked Christmas, and I always felt it unwise and deceitful to teach my children the rather silly notion of Santa Claus. The big bearded guy stands for many of the values I do not believe in; mainly the capitalist, consumerist attitude I feel is quickly destroying our planet. Recen ...

Grumpy old man claims global warming is a hoax

Here's an amusing / frustrating video of Weather Channel founder John Coleman trying his best to blast global warming. He's concerned about how 'upset' people are, as though being worried about the environment is slowly killing people's souls. He also believes things are just fine, and there is no need for concern. It seems his biggest proof is simply that the polar icecaps are not going to melt, despite cl ...

Mugabe claims cholera outbreak is contained

Zimbabwe is in trouble. Not only is the country suffering from hyper inflation (they printed a 50 billion dollar note a few months ago), but it's also in the grips of an epidemic of cholera. The World Health Organization estimates roughly 15,000 people are infected, and 700 have already died. The outbreak is leading many to flee to South Africa, but they in turn are not quarantining any of the refugees, whi ...

I knew it, Christmas IS evil!

More on the War on Christmas, and this time, it's not coming from us filthy atheists. Anjem Choudary is a Muslim chairman for the Society of Muslim Lawyers, and preaches on the corrupt influence Christmas apparently has on Muslims. Now it's one thing to dislike a holiday, but it's another entirely to decree yuletide festivities are a 'pathway to hellfire'. You gotta love these brimstone and hellfire guys. T ...

Prohibition anniversary goes mostly unnoticed

December 5th is not a special day for most, but it does mark the 75th anniversary of the repeal of the 18th Amendment, which constitutionally prohibited the purchase, manufacture, and distribution of alcohol. The 25th Amendment was created specifically to invalidate it, and serves no other real purpose in the Constitution. The 75 years is more symbolic than anything else, since many states did not ratify th ...

On conspiracy theories

On November 22nd, 1963, the President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was shot and killed during a parade in Dallas, Texas. It was a gorgeous clear day, one few expected would forever change the lives of so many Americans. Though he was rushed to the hospital, Kennedy died immediately from a fatal shot to the head, the impact of which destroyed a significant portion of his brain. Not long aft ...
