Who wants to buy a Creationist Theme Park?

If you've never heard of Ken Hovind, then allow me to relieve your ignorance. My friend Jeff practically had an obsession with the guy, and I've watched hours of videos of this creationist moron trying to prove the Earth is only a few thousand years old. Kent had a Creationist Amusement park for a while, but he failed to pay any taxes for a decade (he claimed he was employed by God, and therefore exempt fro ...

Don’t read this version of “On the Origin of Species”

Creationism is alive and well in the United States. Despite their laughingly terrible arguments, backers of 'Intelligent Design' continue to flood educational institutions with materials they hope will throw doubt on the truth of evolution by means of natural selection. Their latest tactic is this book; a republication of Darwin's On theĀ Origin of Species with a twist; the introduction is a 50 page attack o ...

Religious wacko facing dismisal sues school district

You can't keep a good psycho down, apparently. John Freshwater is an eighth grade science teacher who denies evolution, used a high voltage lab tool in class to burn crosses on the arms of students, and told them homosexuals are evil sinners. The district first suspended him after hearing the allegations, and announced last June (yeah, the story isn't exactly "fresh" here) they were canning him. Now Freshwa ...

Discovery Institute tries to censor YouTube

There are few institutions as corrupt, intellectually dishonest, and morally bankrupt as the Discovery Institute. Their name itself is a tragic irony; there is no 'discovery' going on there. All they are interested in doing is attacking the foundations of science in order to get everyone to abandon evolution in favor of creationism. They are heavily funded, ambitious, and as this video shows, without scrupl ...

More stupidity from the Creation Museum

The Creation Museum apparently has a petting zoo, and one of the animals they have is a zonkey (usually referred to as a zebra mule). This creature is quite obviously infertile, but despite the fact the obvious conclusion as to why a zonkey cannot produce offspring should be that they are too genetically different to do so, the brilliant minds at the museum actually think this is evidence of creationism. Th ...

Shermer’s take on creationists

If you've never heard of Michael Shermer, then I highly recommend you read his book The Science of Good and Evil, as well as Why people Believe Weird Things. He's the editor of Skeptics Magazine, and he's a passionate advocate of reason. Lately, Michael has been visiting different creationists trying to understand their points of view. Michael is a former Evangelical Christian, so he is familiar with the ki ...

The unintended hilarity of creationists

Don't you just love the Internet? Everyone on this planet has an opinion, and we have access to billions of different ones in all different languages. The Internet is just like real life; it's filled with plenty of crap, a plethora of porn, and it's also populated by some truly wacky and unintentionally hilarious people. Take for example this website called ScienceagainstEvolution.org. The site looks like G ...

New Scientist sees through the deception in Texas

There's more info from the New Scientist about the proposed changes to the science textbooks over in Texas, and it doesn't look too promising. The Board voted to completely remove the age of the universe from the textbooks, and more importantly, they claimed students will not be penalized if they subscribe to a specific opinion on science. In other words, if a student answers on a test that the earth is 600 ...

Don’t be a Turkey!

Turkey is a strange country. In the 1920s, a military commander, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, started the Turkish national movement after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and formed the country now known as Turkey. He made special provisions to make the country secular, in order to prevent the Islamic church from wrestling control away from him. Like in the United States, the population is highly religious, and ...

Texas teacher fired for atheism and liberal attitudes

I know I have fans who live in Texas, so I don't want any of you to be too offended when I say it's a seriously messed up place. The latest bit of bad news comes from Brookland, where a teacher by the name of Richard Mullens was fired because parents and other faculty members thought he was an atheist, and way too 'liberal'. There's no indication he's an atheist, and Mr. Mullens has chosen to keep his relig ...
