Islam doesn’t have a monopoly on crazy

Because it's almost literally halfway across the world, we don't hear a lot of news about all the crazy stuff that happens in India. As far as most westerners are concerned, India is supposed to be a peaceful place, filled with sacred cows, gurus, and outsourced telemarketers. But all is not well in the world's largest democracy, and they face the same challenge many other developing nations do; the growing ...

No really, Islam is a religion of peace…

The Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan is in turmoil. Although there is a German military base there, 600 soldiers have to patrol and defend an area the size of Massachusetts. The Taliban has been gaining ground rapidly, threatening to kill school girls if they try to attend class. School administrators are powerless to do anything about it, and scared parents are capitulating to the treats. If you rec ...

Taliban moving closer to Islamabad

I'm not a fear monger, but right now, the whole world needs to pay attention to what is going on in Pakistan. Taliban militants are continuing their assault, and have had a series of victories that continue to move them closer to the capital of Pakistan. It's risen fears the country is on the brink of collapse, and the secular Awami National party is on the verge of being overrun. If you don't think that's ...

How death works in Islam

Apparently, when I'm in the grave, two angels are going to hit me in the face with a hammer if I don't answer I am a Muslim. Then 90 hell snakes come in, and they will bite me unless I start praying to Allah. This is all very technical. Luckily this guy knows for sure what will happen, because Mohammad told him, and he never told a lie, right? Or was that George Washington? Oh yeah, and apparently this guy ...

Hot Chick’s search for Islam

She seems both highly naive, submissive and also highly attractive sexually. This is probably a dangerous combination, so I can understand why she would go for Islam: after all, Islam means submission, so in a weird way, this probably speaks to her. I love how she claims to have compared only two religions, and that now she's 100% certain Islam must be correct. I don't want to be mean here, but I doubt stro ...

Irony, thy name is Islam

Imagine you're Muslim, and you want to show people that your religion isn't the violent, backwards faith the mainstream media portrays. Starting your own English TV station centering on your religion is probably a reasonably good start. Bridges TV was such a project. It featured shows such as Democracy Now, a cooking show called Veggie Table, and the saccharine sounding Talking Peace. In a twisted bit of ir ...

Church reinstates Islamic department

Tensions are running high between the Islamic world and the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI. In order to avoid further alienation, and to improve relations between the two faiths, the Pope has re-instated the Vatican's Islam department, according to BBCNEWS.com. The move means everyone can breathe a sigh of relief, since he will now have a little more perspective as to the sensibilities ...

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 ...

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 ...
