Nice ad…

Wow, and here I was complaining about how tame the atheist bus campaign message was. Islam: Submission to God reminds me why I revile this religion. Since God isn't actually around, the only thing you're submissive to is a dusty, poorly written tome that is completely incompatible with modern values. Oh, and graphic design FAIL!

Who would Jesus shoot?

Imagine a crazed gunman with a semi automatic walks in to your workplace and declares anyone who isn't a Christian is going to die. He turns around to you and asks your religion. What would you say? Most of us wouldn't hesitate to lie, but for some folks, that's the worst thing you could do. Derik Bonestroo decided on Thursday that he was going to purge the Eldora ski resort of non Christians, and when he w ...

Religious people are less stressed

There's a new study that seems to indicate religious people have less stress, and appear less worried about making mistakes than their secular counterparts. The study indicates something I've always known about religious people: they generally take a hands off attitude towards life. Think about this: when you are certain this life is only one form of existence, the only thing you have to worry about is plea ...

Atheist superheroes

Here's an interesting site I came across today, which describes in detail the religious affiliation of different superheroes. Most interesting to me is how light the atheist section is. I am glad, however, that Savage Dragon is in there. He's an atheist DESPITE the fact he's actually met God, which is the ballsiest position I've ever seen on the issue of belief. The list is quite impressive, including even ...

Florida Baptists get involved

Florida is facing a budget deficit, and the primary concern of their government should be to ensure this economic crisis doesn't bankrupt their state. Of course, not everyone sees the economy as the most important issue of the day: Florida Baptist Convention legislative consultant Bill Bunkley is urging Florida Baptists to evaluate budget priorities "through the lens of God's principles and His priorities”a ...

Does this sound like an ‘ex-Atheist’ to you?

Here's Kirk Cameron trying his best to convince us that before he read the Bible, he didn't know anything real. Even if he didn't believe in God before then, he himself admits he never really though about God, so he's less of an atheist and just more of an ex-non theist. (props to proudatheist for the find) ...

Dawkins calls Ray ‘Banana Man’ Comfort an ignorant fool

I like to lay the smack down. It's who I am. It's in my nature. Guys like Ray Comfort, who think the banana is proof God exists, are easy targets. The problem happens when the high profile atheists engage in this sort of behavior. It only makes these guys seem like innocent victims. "Hey, look at me, Richard Dawkins is calling me names!" Ray is more than a fool. He's positively mentally deranged. We don't n ...

Jesus loves spanking

Here's an interesting discovery from Unreasonable Faith, concerning pastor John Piper who is convinced that if alive, Jesus would be spanking his kids like it's 33 AD. I'm not a fan of corporal punishment, but I was occasionally spanked as a kid and I didn't get screwed up too badly. It's not the spanking itself that worries me in Piper's case, but his reasoning behind it: Deep down, does this person believ ...

Bombs away!

Unreasonable faith asks the following question: Who would Jesus bomb? His answer: everyone! Although I agree with him that most fundamentalists are simply aching for Armageddon, I can't blindly assert they would seek to annihilate the rest of us. Take, for example, the Branch Davidians. If you don't remember these guys, they were the loony group who built a huge compound in Waco Texas that was eventually bu ...

Solving all of the world’s problems with pain!

I get the occasional nutjob letter telling me I have to let Jesus in or my family might get a cosmic bitchslap from God, but PZ Myers is on a whole other level. Here are the highlights of the latest insanity in an inbox: I have discovered that if you lay perfectly level on a firm mattress, with no pillow. Then relax and let gravity push you flat. Do this for 3 hours day/night...Take painkillers if you have ...
