This is what a stupid comment looks like

Every so often, someone visits the site and leaves a comment so frustrating and idiotic, I can't help but re-post it for all to see. The latest pearl of wisdom comes from a commenter named Connor, who thought I was being unfair in my analysis of the highly dangerous 'imagine your Lyme disease away' scam called Advanced Cell Training. Here's what he had to say: Good Atheist, I would like to start by acknowle ...

Who wants to make 10K from this moron?

Are you a bored scientist looking to spank a few confused creationists for money? Then why not take up this challenge: Dr Joseph Mastropaolo, who says he has set up the contest, the Literal Genesis Trial, in the hope of improving the quality of arguments between creationists and evolutionists, has pledged to put $10,000 of his own money into an escrow account before the debate. His competitor would be expec ...

For the last time, Atheism is not a religion

Religious people just don't get it, do they? They think when we talk about the belief in God we are in fact acknowledging 'his' existence, and that our own struggle against the brutalizing influence of religion is itself a kind of faith. It's enough to make your head want to burst. Especially frustrating are these kind of lazy atheist hit pieces; brave articles that refuse to allow a comment section out of ...

New Pope elected..and surprise, he’s also a bigot

After the first day of indecision, an old, antiquated bunch of clowns dressed in silly costumes finally elected their new infallible leader: Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentina. His new name, Francis the First, is in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, the guy who renounced wealth in order to feel more connected to the poor. Now you might think it's a little ironic that a man sitting on 50 billion dol ...

Kansas City atheists barred from participating in St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Normally when you think of St. Patrick's Day, images of green beer, girls in t-shirts that say "kiss me, I'm Irish", and drunken revelers usually pop into your head. Over the decades since we've been 'observing' these liver destroying traditions, the religious elements of the holiday have generally fallen to the wayside, replaced instead with a party to celebrate the fact that Irish people exist. Hey, I'm p ...

Another stupid Ark being built, this time in Texas

They say everything is bigger in Texas: this probably also applies to the insanity of the populace there. How else can you explain this church deciding to build their own version of Noah's Ark at the cost of a cool 5 million bucks? You might recall that there's a similar project out of Florida that's been trying to get funding from Kickstarter. After almost a month, they've managed to snag an impressive $52 ...

Lawrence Krauss walks out of UCL debate over segregation of sexes

During a scheduled debate between Lawrence Krauss and Muslim apologist Hamza Andreas Tzortzis (he's the clown I spanked a few days ago over his supposed arguments for God), a fundamentalist group called the "Islamic Education and Research Academy" forced the students to segregate themselves according to their sex. A few students, who had decided not to observe this ridiculous custom, were being ejected for ...

For Canada’s “Office of Religious Freedom”, non-believers don’t matter

As much as we Canadians make fun of Americans (yes, I am a Canuck, people), the truth is that our own country isn't really that much better when it comes to religious interference in government. With the Conservative party in power, it seems as though they are intent on copying the American model: in other words, they wish to turn this country into a mini-sectarian state in order to please their highly reli ...

How to annoy your coworkers, Jesus style

You know what I love? I love it when I'm at the office, and someone vaguely familiar with their religion decides that it's their duty to try and convert me to whatever bullshit they believe in at the time. Yes, there's nothing in this world I love more than watching these people squirm when you start asking them questions their priest never really prepared them for. What's the deal with Jesus and his intens ...

Don’t use Pro-Lifers as surrogate mothers, people!

Let me give you a nightmare scenario: because of medical complications, you and your spouse decide to employ a surrogate mother to bring your baby to term. After the massive contract fees and the cost of in vitro fertilization, the pregnancy takes and everything is hunky-dory. For a while. Then, in the 2nd trimester, an ultrasound reveals the baby is having serious development problems. The doctor concludes ...
