In GOP we trust

I must have been asleep the last few days, because I could have sworn the US was facing one of the worst financial crisis in its history, accompanied by two wars that are not going very swimmingly. It must be all fixed, since a group of Senators are busy trying to have the motto "In God We Trust" posted in the new Capital Visitor Center in Washington. The building is your classic boondoggle; it cost 3 times ...

Misleading title: Osama Bin Lego

As a kid, I loved my Lego collection. I find the whole idea behind those little blocks to be pure genius. It stimulates creativity, and it also makes up for the fact that when you don't get a lot of presents each year you can at least build your own. So it doesn't surprise me at all when someone tries to capitalize on my nostalgia for a few bucks. Enter this little fellow, who is an obvious cheap attempt to ...

The inequities of the ‘War on Terror’

On December 14th, 1999, a man named Amhed Ressam was arrested crossing the Canadian-American border. Custom officials found explosives hidden in his spare tire, and more bomb making materials in his apartment in Montreal, Quebec. He was subsequently interrogated, and in return for a lighter sentence, Ressam would reveal the existence of a complex sleeper cell network to investigators, eventually leading to ...

Shocker: scientists are not getting laid

An Australian study found that men who study science in University are less likely to get laid. It found science 'nerds' were more likely to be doing homework and far less likely to go to parties and bars. As a general rule, I hate garbage studies that only reinforce the stereotype science is somehow unhip, uncool, and something only nerds do. I'm sure there's a similar correlation between level of educatio ...

Mother abandons child in style

Every year, you get at least one desperate mother giving up her child in a nativity scene, and this year is no exception. This time, it's out of Augsburg, Germany. The woman said she gave up her child because of a 'difficult personal situation'. That's mother speak for "I can't stand this little shit crying all the time, and I only got preggers because I wanted my boyfriend to stay with me but he bailed". T ...

Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks the Constitution

I used to laugh at the whole 'Chuck Norris facts' stuff, until I read one of his insane blog posts where he maintains the Founding Fathers of America wanted their country to follow Christian principles and doctrines. Not only is this blatantly false, it's completely dishonest. Most of these guys were deists. Thomas Paine wrote a book called The Age of Reason which basically tore Christianity a new anus. Eve ...

Gene patents already putting lives at risk

The goal of science has always been to uncover the secrets of nature. This pursuit has, in the past, been the hobby of rich men who did it out of sheer pleasure and curiosity. As the cost of conducting experiments has increased, however, a devil's bargain was struck; science became increasingly about the ability to exploit discoveries for profit. Many of us are unaware that in the late 90s, a race was being ...

Careful, you might bring down atheism!

In the past, I've been critical of a number of atheists who have discouraged me from participating and expanding a broader secular movement. These 'naysayers' now have a name, according to Austin Cline. These are 'Uncle Tom Atheists', and they are, apparently, a big problem. I'd like to start by pointing out how terribly insulting that phrase is. I'm not black, but I have many friends who are, and this moni ...

Careful what you wish for, Christian Soldier!

The 'War on Christmas' is making everyone who fights for the promulgation of Christianity a little bit crazy. The latest story comes from Washington State, where a lawsuit was filed that allows distinct religious symbols to be displayed. After a bunch of Christians and Jews put up their decorations, it's now the turn of atheists to display their faith, and they have erected a sign that says There is no God, ...

Religious more likely to cheat on exams

Alright, I'll start off by saying I'm always skeptical of any study that finds any major distinctions between human beings as a result of their religious belief. I simply see no compelling evidence that religiosity makes you more or less moral. Still, it's quite satisfying when a study comes out that throws cold water in the faces of religious pundits who think their flocks are incapable of immoral action. ...
