TGA Podcast: Episode 83 1/2

Welcome back to another episode of The Good Atheist bonus podcast. This week I have a special guest: a TGA fan from Calgary called Brock Roberts. I invite him to talk about how he became an atheist, why creationism is nonsense, and why young people need to take more control in politics. ...

Teach the Controversy

Here's a great video from Atheist Cartoons showing just how ridiculous the notion of "teach the controversy" really is. If every bullshit controversy was allowed to be part of a school curriculum, there would be no end to the nonsense kids would be exposed to. If you want to try and teach your kids the nonsense that is creationism, do it on your own damn time, and leave the rest of us out of it! ...

Smithsonian gives shitty creationist movie the boot

The more evidence we gather showing the truth about evolution, the more vitriolic creationists get. Recently they tried to sneak a shitty "documentary" called Darwin's Dilemma into the Smithsonian's IMAX theater, but they were smacked down when the California Science Center used a special clause in the contract to cancel their engagement. The Discovery Institute is now trying to sue the CSC for not allowing ...

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 the 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 ...
