Dutch prohibition lesson is unlearned

In 2007, a French teenager jumped off a bridge in Amsterdam. Because he was high on hallucinogens, the Dutch government worked diligently to try and reverse their lax policies on drugs, and as now made 'magic mushrooms' illegal. Selling the drug was already illegal, but now growing it for personal use carries serious penalties. I think the move is both ludicrous and a giant waste of time. The Dutch governme ...

Are you offended by “Merry Christmas”?

My early memories of Christmas involved dreaming about what presents would be waiting for me under the tree when I awoke. I also remember the occasional disappointment over the sweater or sock in my stocking, but generally despite the usual selfishness of children, the experience was fun and enjoyable. Like most of my friends, we celebrated Christmas for the presents, and although the story of Jesus was nev ...

Faith healing and the manipulation of the desperate

On a normal day in February. Bernadette Soubirous, a 14 year old living in the small town of Lourdes in France, was gathering firewood with her sisters near a small grotto. She became aware of a presence, and claims a lady in a white robe with a golden rose on each foot appeared before her. Her sisters, who were present at the time, did not report seeing anything of the sort. Bernadette would return to the ...

Dancing nuns at the basketball court

Forgive the quality of the video above. Apparently, this spectator was too nervous at the sight of a bunch of nuns and monks dancing hypnotically at the basketball game to hold the damn camera steady. The troop, based out of Australia, is on tour in Italy, in perhaps the weirdest conversion ritual I've ever seen. ...

Florida judge rules against gay adoption ban

The headline would have been more effective as "finally, someone from Florida shows common sense", but the joke had to be sacrificed for the importance of this ruling. The Miami Judge found there was no rational basis for denying adoption rights to gays, and in the light of the tough times the homosexual community has endured, it's good to see positive news for once. There's undoubtedly going to be legal sa ...

The vampire next door

Vampires have been part of human folklore in almost every culture and civilization. Creatures who suck life blood, energy, or souls have a long history of being cautionary tales against trusting strangers, against eating the dead, or simply an excuse to fear the dark. Although some cultures have very different ideas about how vampires operate, the modern Nosferatu legend is almost exclusively based on 18th ...

Interview with the Gazette: Part 1

I was asked a few days ago by the Colorado Gazette do do a series of email interviews on a variety of subjects. They wanted an Atheist's perspective on a number of issues ranging from gay marriage to Internet access, and I was happy to oblige. The responses I wrote were probably too lengthy and detailed for them to be able to publish, and so I asked if I could post them up on the site for you who may find s ...

Al-Qaeda is hilariously out of touch

People who live in a bubble of delusion have a difficult time getting in touch with reality. Michael Jackson is the poster boy for delusion; this was the same man whose home was called 'Neverland', and who arrived at the Grammy Awards with a 12 year old boy as a date. In order for Mike to find redemption and hopefully lose his leper status, he's decided to convert to Islam, and Al-Qaeda sees this as a sign ...

Homeopathy; a story of dilution

I am often reminded one does not win popularity contests when attempting to shatter the delusions of others. I can certainly appreciate the fact no one wants to believe that they might be wrong, especially if this belief represents a form of comfort. It is then that I carefully remind people the truth is not a matter of popularity; we have plenty of examples in history of when popular beliefs have been held ...
