More on penis thieves

We talked about those penis thief sorcerers on an earlier radio show (Jake doesn't label stuff properly so I couldn't tell you which one off-hand). Now here's a really in-depth article from Harper's on the subject so you can understand what the dilly is with that whole situation: According to Ilechukwu, an epidemic of penis theft swept Nigeria between 1975 and 1977. Then there seemed to be a lull until 1990 ...

Town split over teacher who burned crosses into students’ arms

From MSNBC.com Demonstrations on the town square show how divided people are over the school board's decision to fire a science teacher accused of preaching his Christian beliefs in the classroom and burning crosses on students' arms.

Christopher Hitchens gets waterboarded

Personally I'm not really a fan of Christopher Hitchens so I enjoyed this a little too much: Late last year, the writer, polemicist and fierce proponent of the US-led invasion of Iraq Christopher Hitchens attempted, in a piece for the online magazine Slate, to draw a distinction between what he called techniques of "extreme interrogation" and "outright torture". From this, his foes inferred that since it wa ...

Poorly thought out bill seeks to undermine evolution

The word freedom gets tossed around a lot. It seems like the mot-du-jour for anyone smart enough to realize manipulating people is as easy as telling them that such an important value might be taken away. A few years ago, creationists wanted people to 'tech the controversy'. That was their angle, and they had managed to make a few inroads in schools. After a devastating ruling in the Kitzmiller v. Dover Are ...

Conservapedia calls evolving bacteria ‘a hoax’

From Ars Technica: This is a story that starts in triumph, takes a detour through farce, and inadvertently ends raising some profound questions. The triumph is one of scientific progress in the study of evolution; the farce comes courtesy of those who run Conservapedia, who apparently can't believe that any scientific evidence can possibly support evolution. The questions, however, focus on what access the ...

Worst video game idea ever

Ever wonder what it would be like to kill Mohammad and Jesus to stop the spread of the powerful monotheistic religions they helped create? Yeah, me neither. But apparently, a small game developer in Virginia has decided it's a good idea. Here's an excerpt from the article: The new game, not yet released, is giving a voice to the atheist community, that's according to the game's creator, a University of Virg ...

Exorcism is protected by law

From MSNBC" The Texas Supreme Court on Friday threw out a jury award over injuries a 17-year-old girl suffered in an exorcism conducted by members of her old church, ruling that the case unconstitutionally entangled the court in religious matters. In a 6-3 decision, the justices found that a lower court erred when it said the Pleasant Glade Assembly of God's First Amendment rights regarding freedom of relig ...

Stephen Hawking adds to Big Bang theory

From the Telegraph: Prof Stephen Hawking has come up with a new idea to explain why the Big Bang of creation led to the vast cosmos that we can see today. Astronomers can deduce that the early universe expanded at a mind-boggling rate because regions separated by vast distances have similar background temperatures. They have proposed a process of rapid expansion of neighbouring regions, with similar cosmic ...
