Sam Harris lambasts liberals for excusing fundamentalists

You've got to love Sam Harris. He's not afraid to speak his mind. On his radar screen these days are the liberal apologists who try and excuse Islamic fundamentalism on economic and social disparity. Is it so hard to believe a religion can entice its followers to hate others for very little cause? I love how he mentions the religious nutbags in America are better suited to understand the danger of Fundament ...

Interview with a suicide bomber

Can you believe how insane this guy is? Such is life when you live your life by some insane and murderous dogma. This fucker doesn't even care if his family is killed as a direct result of his actions. This is precisely why I find the concept of the "afterlife" so corrosive; assholes like this suicide bomber make decisions based on the stupid assumption there is life after death. I also love how the intervi ...

What a surprise; ignorant ass thinks only his religion is true

It still amazes me how people with absolutely no knowledge about anything objectively real can be so casually arrogant and claim to know everything. Dr. Zakir Naik is one of India's most prominent Islamic scholars, and if that's true, it's a sad testament to how intellectually devoid the entire movement is. Is he really trying to use math to suggest that his retarded beliefs are correct, while the other equ ...

Detroit Imam shot and killed during FBI raid

Here's the deal; if you want to start your own little mosque and preach for the government to be replaced by a caliphate run by a man in prison for life, it's generally a good idea not to draw attention to yourself by buying and selling stolen weapons, and it's definitely a bad idea to go around telling people to help overthrow the government. Luqman Ameen Abdullah converted to Islam and began preaching ant ...

More sectarian violence in Pakistan

Imagine a philosophy that regards human life as worthless and cheap, where adherents are told to kill others who do not share their beliefs, and where huge segments of the population are kept ignorant and subservient. Well, you don't need to use your imagination; this type of philosophy already exists, and it has a colorful name: Islam. Pakistan was the scene of more violence today as a market in Peshawar w ...

Pat Condell wants you to wake up

Pat is always interesting to listen to. In this video, he lambasts the UN for trying to include a resolution making criticism of religion a crime. It's legislation we don't quite have to be worried about now, but it definitely sends a scary message that many Islamic countries are completely opposed to some of our most important beliefs (namely, that human beings should be allowed to speak their fucking mind ...

A culture of child brides

Child brides are a reality in the Middle East. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly when this tradition started gaining wide acceptance, but one thing is for sure: Most Islamic countries (especially poorer ones) regard this practice as normal, even beneficial. Why wouldn't they? Their own prophet, Mohammad, consummated his marriage with his favorite bride, Aisha, when she was only 9 years old (there's conside ...

Happy Blasphemy Day

The Center for Inquiry has decreed that the 30th of September is now Blasphemy Day International to commemorate those Danish cartoons that set the Muslim world on fire.  Which means, of course, that it will be celebrated by dozens of people worldwide... OK, now I'm being a little cruel, but I'm not entirely sure this holiday will catch on. It's cool and all that it falls on my Dad's birthday, especially con ...

Why is no one listening to this man?

If there's one thing you can credit to fundamentalist Islam, it's their ability to control their flock. There aren't many Islamic fundamentalists that apostatized, and anytime there is, it offers us a unique opportunity to understand the scope of terrorism that shouldn't be ignored. Ed Husain was a radical, brought into this culture in college by other British born Muslims, and it wasn't until he witnessed ...
