So close, yet so far away

Mother Nature can be a cruel, nasty bitch. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, asteroids; honestly, I could spend the whole day listing the many ways humans can be crushed, burned, drowned, blown away, or fall to their deaths. When these kinds of senseless tragedies occur (well, senseless to us as natural forces interact), people who still cling to Bronze Age beliefs can often find themse ...

Neil deGrasse Tyson on Intelligent Design

Here's an old presentation from Neil some of you may not have seen yet. In the talk, Neil discusses the history of Intelligent Design, and why it still persists in society. While I've always liked Neil, and I'm fascinated by his idea that we should carefully study why some scientists are religious, I think at the end of the day, the answer will be quite dull and not very informative: mainly that when you're ...

Hurricane Sandy relief to violate Establishment Clause

It's no small irony that when Republicans talk about smaller government, this same crippled beast seems to have no problems handing gobs of cash to institutions they have no business helping. Take the recent appropriation of 60 billion dollars for Hurricane Sandy. The Republican controlled House has voted to allow some of the money to be used to rebuild houses of worship, a clear violation of the Establishm ...

Who wants to fund a monument to ignorance?

Remember last year when I put up Bible Stories on Kickstarter? I remember being nervous that I would have to live down the embarrassment of failing to attract enough potential buyers for the book. That's why I tried to come up with a conservative estimate of how many people would buy it. Luckily, it ended up being a huge success (after an initial moment of sheer panic when we moved the campaign to Indiegogo ...

Rated “O” for Offensive as hell

What do you get when you combine shitty inspirational synth music with a bigoted, ignorant Christian teenage girl? You get the ironically titled "Rated T for Tolerance", a strange Orwellian name that belies their own contorted views of reality. Now some of you might think that this video falls under "Poe's Law", but as I've said in the past, when it's impossible to tell the difference, what does it matter? ...

So, is this what getting owned by a Muslim is supposed to look like?

This video, hilariously titled "Dan Barker gets OWNED by Muslim Hamza Tzortzis", showcases perfectly the kind of pathetic, nonsense arguments you get into when talking to these apologists. Tellingly, the video does not offer a chance for Barker to reply, so I thought I might do him that solid. Let's take a look at his argument, shall we? Asinine Assumption #1: We know God exists, so arguments for God isn't ...

Mother Teresa confirmed as giant, twisted bitch in new study

How ahead of his time was Christopher Hitchens? Well, when he released his book, The Missionary Position in 1995, the notion that Mother Teresa was anything less than a saint was believed by the entire world. Even after his follow-up documentary, Hell's Angel, it still seemed as though her reputation as a do-gooder would never truly be tarnished. Slowly, over time, her insanity and cruelty has been exposed. ...

Kirk Cameron wants to open your mind…to nonsense.

Are you having trouble evangelizing to people who seem to know more about the Bible than you do? Don't worry, child actor Kirk Cameron has the solution for you. He's re-posted an old article from his master entitled "How to Witness to a Closed-Minded Person". As you may have guessed, it's about as compelling as an episode of The View. Here's his advice for how to talk to people who think God and his magical ...
