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 ...

So close, yet so far away

Mother Nature can be a cruel, nasty bitch. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, asteroids; honestly, I could spend the whole day listing the many ways humans can be crushed, burned, drowned, blown away, or fall to their deaths. When these kinds of senseless tragedies occur (well, senseless to us as natural forces interact), people who still cling to Bronze Age beliefs can often find themse ...

Neil deGrasse Tyson on Intelligent Design

Here's an old presentation from Neil some of you may not have seen yet. In the talk, Neil discusses the history of Intelligent Design, and why it still persists in society. While I've always liked Neil, and I'm fascinated by his idea that we should carefully study why some scientists are religious, I think at the end of the day, the answer will be quite dull and not very informative: mainly that when you're ...

Who wants to fund a monument to ignorance?

Remember last year when I put up Bible StoriesĀ on Kickstarter? I remember being nervous that I would have to live down the embarrassment of failing to attract enough potential buyers for the book. That's why I tried to come up with a conservative estimate of how many people would buy it. Luckily, it ended up being a huge success (after an initial moment of sheer panic when we moved the campaign to Indiegogo ...

So, is this what getting owned by a Muslim is supposed to look like?

This video, hilariously titled "Dan Barker gets OWNED by Muslim Hamza Tzortzis", showcases perfectly the kind of pathetic, nonsense arguments you get into when talking to these apologists. Tellingly, the video does not offer a chance for Barker to reply, so I thought I might do him that solid. Let's take a look at his argument, shall we? Asinine Assumption #1: We know God exists, so arguments for God isn't ...
