Atheist dating strategies

The Atheist Revolution has two posts on the topic of atheist dating that I just HAVE to post up (and don't forget to read the comments, they're just as interesting). Jake (the Good Atheist himself) is constantly struggling with some of the issues and questions brought up by these posts, like "How do you respect people who believe in such dumb things?" And no, I'm not saying believing in a god is necessarily ...

Teaching evolution to young Christian skeptics

Just because evolution is being taught in the classroom doesn't mean the students actually believe it. SFGate discusses the struggle many teachers have trying to get Christian skeptics to open up to Darwin's ideas. Some come armed with "Ten questions to ask your biology teacher about evolution," a document circulated on the Internet that highlights supposed weaknesses in evolutionary theory. Others scrawl t ...

Monkey Trials and Gorilla Sermons

RedOrbit has a review of Peter Bowler's book Monkey Trials and Gorilla Sermons As one might gather from this brief outline, Monkey Trials and Gorilla Sermons does not set out to radically re-imagine the historical contours of the continuing struggle over evolution. Yet, because it assembles the crucial figures and events in an easily accessible and wonderfully economical package, the book is exceptionally w ...

Science fiction and Intelligent Design

They're kinda the same thing, if you think about it. So it's fitting that several sci-fi writers are beginning to tell tales of universes where there really is a Creator. A new crop of science fiction novels focus on what it would mean if Intelligent Design turned out to be the truth. Jay Lake's Escapement is a perfect example, as is Walter Jon Williams' Implied Spaces, both are novels about people in clock ...

Dawkins: the evangelical atheist?

Another review of Dawkins' new documentary The Genius of Charles Darwin. This reviewer finds conflict in Dawkins' attempt to play at times both the impartial scientist and the firebrand atheist. Personally, I can understand: Even the best of scientists will go batshit insane after explaining why 2+2 = 4 and not 3, only to be perpetually ignored or told "Let these people think it's 3 if they want to, it's ok ...

MSNBC poll on ‘In God we Trust’

The Jacksonville Daily Progress has a short article on an MSNBC poll asking "should the motto 'In God We Trust' be removed from U.S. currency?": Of the 7,230,365 votes cast as of 11:45 a.m. Monday, 78 percent of those participating in the poll voted to keep the motto, compared to 22 percent voting to remove it from U.S. currency. "That doesn't surprise me," said Kevin King, senior pastor of the First Unite ...

The Taliban of atheism

From Scrippsnews: In my younger and more vulnerable years I once got into a debate with a fundamentalist Christian about the morality of capital punishment. Her view was that the Bible sanctioned the death penalty, and as far as she was concerned that was the end of the matter. What struck me most about her attitude toward the subject was her contempt for anyone who might see the question differently. Recen ...

Dawkins’ new documentary

This month saw the release of a new Dawkins related documentary called The Genius of Charles Darwin - you can read more about it here or just download the torrents here. My criticism of Dawkins has always been that he's so hardcore about his disdain for religion it turns off many religious fence sitters who might be more receptive to a moderate atheist message. Yeah, I know the whole 'moderate atheism will ...

Jefferson the atheist

More 'No love for atheists in today's Democratic party' articles! But this one includes an interesting anecdote from the early days of America's history, when atheist presidential candidates roamed the earth: And if Senator Obama, a committed Christian, were ever attacked for something so minute as, say, making space on a dais for a Humanist clergyperson? He could successfully take a page from the president ...
