The Parade of Ignorance

What better way to celebrate the majesty of the uber-exploitive parade of vapidity that is the Miss American Pagent than to feature a video with contestants telling people about their "thoughts" on evolution. Most of these airheads tow the "teach the controversy" line, as though "students" deciding between fantasy bullshit and rigorous science isn't a total waste of time. Thankfully, a few actually believe, ...

Laying a good smackdown

I love getting these kinds of letters: Jacob, Just wanted to drop a quick line to share an encounter I just had with a Jehovah's Witness while walking my dog. She stopped to ask me about my religious views and I told her I was an atheist. Then she asked if I believed in evolution and I said "Of course, but I don't have to believe in it, it's a scientific fact." She replied with "Well, it's only a theory." O ...

Muslim Creationist gets schooled

This, my friends, is stupidity: the inability to even understand the arguments of others. I mean, how could anyone reading any of Richard Dawkin's books think he was in favor of design? It's obvious here the gentleman asking the question has a world view precluding him from properly understanding natural selection. Failing to grasp how this evolutionary pressure morphs and changes organisms in order for the ...

Kirk Cameron thinks Stephen Hawking has “absurd Ideas”

Guess who managed to weasel his way into the news? It's everyone's favorite "ex-atheist", Kirk Cameron, criticizing Hawking for declaring that Heaven is a fairy-tale. He posted this on his Facebook page: to say anything negative about Stephen Hawking is like bullying a blind man. He has an unfair disadvantage, and that gives him a free pass on some of his absurd ideas. That's not passive aggressive in the s ...

Creationist Pimp Harun Yahya is back

Remember Harun Yahya? He's the Turkish creationist that published a book called "The Atlas of Creation", his attempt to "prove" that animals were created spontaneously by his personal God. Most of the pictures in this massive 768 page monstrosity are ripped right off the Internet. One picture of a fly is in fact a metal lure. Yes, he's that fucking incompetent. Harun Yahya is the pseudonym of Adnan Oktar, 5 ...

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 ...

Muslim actress threatened over Playboy pictures

When I think of someone famous taking off their clothing for money and more attention, it's rare that I compare their actions to those of great revolutionaries. Of course, that's probably because I live in a society that values freedom of expression, and where the female form isn't something we like covered up (which is why winter sucks so hard). That's why I had to take a few moments to appreciate the fact ...

Pope continues to deny reality

I know, it's not much of a headline. I mean, how surprising is it when a supposedly infallible guy in the ceremonial dress claims that his magical sky-man created humans, rather than our existence being the product of natural forces: Benedict emphasized the Biblical account of creation in his Easter Vigil homily Saturday, saying it was wrong to think at some point "in some tiny corner of the cosmos there ev ...
