Death before naptime

I'm no fan of tyrannical dictators, particularly men like Saddam Hussein, even so I can't help but feel a certain regret that Iraq is now far worse in his absence. A scary story appeared on CNN.com today concerning the growing trend of violent rhetoric being expressed by kindergartners in Iraqi schools. One child was quoted as saying "I'm going to bomb, bomb, bomb the school with everybody in it," while ano ...

Standoff in mosque

More trouble in Pakistan, as Islamic fundamentalists kidnapped two police officers and are holding them hostage in a mosque in Islamabad, asking that the government impose 'Islamic rule' in the country. The standoff continues, as the military is hesitant to take any action for fear of creating a volatile situation in a country that seems poised to become another fundamentalist state. The rhetoric that spew ...

Time machine : Dawkins pushes atheism to the masses

TED.com is a website devoted to sharing ideas and concepts. On it you'll find tons of videos about all sorts of ideas, amongst them varying viewpoints on religion. This particular video is a 30 minute video lecture by Richard Dawkins recorded in April 2002: The session was titled 'The Design of Life', and the TED audience was probably expecting remarks about evolution's role in our history from biologist Ri ...

Religious statue damaged by lightning

It seems a little ironic that a statue in Golden Colorado, recently damaged by a bolt of lightning, may not be covered by the church's insurance due to it being considered an 'act of God'. The fact, however, that it hit and destroyed a holy symbol and doesn't appear to unnerve any of the nuns there seems pretty weird to me. Bleeding statues and you have a miracle; a lightning bolt severs the hand of a belo ...

The persistence of Creationism

Why does Creationism and its cousin, Intelligent Design continue to persist in American culture despite the fact both have been exposed as entirely motivated by religion? Even though no serious scientists anywhere accept the baseless theories of ID, the general public in the United States is convinced a serious debate over evolution is being fought. Just what is going on here? As I will demonstrate in this ...

Gore’s scathing new book targets Bush

It seems almost ironic that Al Gore's power and influence has only grown since leaving office. His provocative documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which won an Oscar, helped bring him international recognition and attention. Now, not content to simply live off his laurels, Gore has written a new book entitled The Assault on Reason, a tirade on the Bush administration. According to ABCNEWS.com, the book open ...

The making of a true movement…

Most atheists will tell you that the fact of holding a cosmological view that the universe operates without a designer is a statement about nature, and is not connected in any way, shape or form, to a movement. In fact, a number of atheists are disbelievers specifically because of the tendency for religions to exert their grasp in all aspects of life. It's important, however, to note that theories and ideas ...

Ripping people off in the name of God

Many readers on this site may be too young to remember televangelist Peter Popoff. The only reason I know of him is due in no small part to magician and skeptic James Randi. Popoff was a faith healer who achieved fame by making startling predictions about people's ailments during his church services. He was even able to recite their address, as though God had given him a cosmic phone. Obviously skeptical of ...

Forced conversion fears in Pakistan

A recent article on BBCNEWS reports a tiny Christian minority in Pakistan is facing dire threats to convert to Islam or face annihilation. The group has asked the government to provide protection, though it feels not enough is being done to keep them safe. I just feel the need to ask: just what exactly is the point of converting these people? Evidently you cannot force someone to believe what you do, partic ...

A thought on fossil fuels

I had a random thought this morning, one I thought I might share with you concerning an article I read about NASA's discovery of widespread evidence of Antarctic melting. It's no mystery many global warming deniers are conservative religious folks in the so-called heartland. I have no doubt a significant portion of these individuals also contend the earth is not billions of years old, but rather a paltry s ...
