Creationist Alert!

It's only been a few days since it's been up, but already the forums are lighting up like the fourth of July. One topic that immediately caught my eye came courtesy of user DexM felt too important not to promote: The Christian club at my high school has invited creationist Bill Morgan from http://www.fishdontwalk.com/ to speak at one of their meetings. Needless to say I’m organizing a rapid response team to ...

So close, yet so far away

I do like the effort by this priest to ridicule creationism in the light of modern science. But while he ridicules these beliefs, he seems completely oblivious to the stupidity of his own dogma. Hey pal, there are some people who believe that a 2000 year old failed Jewish carpenter is actually a God too, and the rest of us think that's just stupid. We're glad that you exposed the utter inanity of creationis ...

Kent Hovind gets spanked

If you don't remember Kent Hovind, it might be because you've come into the atheism scene a little late. He's currently in jail for failing to pay taxes on a number of his enterprises, including a religiously themed amusement park called "Dinosaur Adventure Playland". This bastion to ignorance features not only depictions of humans and dinosaurs co-existing, but also a replica of the Loch Ness Monster. It's ...

Buddhists are confused about everything

A fan of the site sent me this Buddhist exchange that I had to say something about: Curious Buddhist: I have an odd question which was raised by a friend, who was asking me questions about Buddhism. They wanted to know how Buddhism deals with the concept of evolution? Are Buddhists creationists? Our teachings don't seem to deal with such matters and I was rather at a loss as to how to answer them. Lama Shen ...

Accommodation or confrontation?

Since arriving in Calgary, I made a simple promise to myself I would further my involvement in the local atheist community. It was therefore fortuitous that after only of few days of adjusting to my new surroundings, an opportunity to meet up with other atheists presented itself in the form of a lecture. Held at the University of Calgary last night, it was entitled "The Evolution-Creation Controversy". Dr. ...

What a waste of time

Alabama continues its campaign of stupidity by declaring March 25th a "Day of Prayer over Students Across Alabama". You might recall that the governor of the state, a man named Robert Bentley, was the man who declared that: "...anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother” This is the same ...

Illinois school board gets shitty candidates

Illinois's 95th District school board has just joined a distinguished group of ignoramuses who continue to undermine the educational futures of their progeny. The members of the board are all up for re-election, and all 4 candidates have said they support creationism being taught alongside evolution in science classrooms. One even claimed it was evolution, and not his stupid Judeo-Christian based belief, th ...

Creationist teacher will finally get the boot

If you're a long-time reader of the site, you might remember a guy by the name of John Freshwater. I wrote about him in 2009 after he was facing dismissal for 1) teaching creationism in his science class, 2) telling his students gays are evil sinners, and 3) burning crosses in the arms of some of his students. A shittier science teacher, there is not. Well, it finally looks like the lengthy process of firin ...

40% of Americans are creationist idiots

Hey America, how do you know whether or not your public education system is failing? How about the fact almost half of your adult population is convinced the Earth is about as old as the Agrarian Revolution (when we went from hunters to farmers). Nice, huh? If you're wondering what other Western country has such abysmally ignorant people, the answer is Turkey, a similarly religious country that also has a s ...
