What lessons can we learn for Ken Ham?

Here's Answers in Genesis douche Ken Ham doing his best to misinform children about objective reality. We're all aware of his refusal to accept Evolution, and he's quite clear about exactly why: he thinks the idea was invented in an effort to undermine God. That's what's so great about it. Ken, unlike his more "moderate" counterparts, understands correctly the conclusion we are to draw from Evolutionary The ...

Ken Ham thinks he knows something

If you're not familiar with Ken Ham, then you are officially a fly by night atheist. How could you not know about this crazy Aussie? He's the man behind the Creation Museum, perhaps the largest and most expensive temple to ignorance ever created. With a 27 million dollar budget, and over half a million visitors since it opened in 2007, the Creation Museum is a snapshot in time, a reminder the human race sti ...

Kentucky back on the “shameful state” list

A few days ago I wrote about how American Atheists and 10 Kentuckians (I just can't get used to that word) have filed a lawsuit to remove a reference to "Almighty God" in the Office of Homeland Security's charter. I naively thought the story was over, but it seems as though the Attorney General's Office has decided to appeal the ruling. The AG is trying to argue that references to God aren't particularly re ...

Don’t believe in God in Kentucky? Get ready for jail time!

It's not enough that religious folks are always shoving their religion down our throats; they also now want to enforce the 'crime' of not believing in their invisible friend. If you can believe this (and trust me, I'm still in shock), the state of Kentucky has effectively declared war on non-believers, threatening jail time for anyone who fails to "recognize the primacy of the Christian God": In Kentucky, a ...

Kent Hovind gets spanked

If you don't remember Kent Hovind, it might be because you've come into the atheism scene a little late. He's currently in jail for failing to pay taxes on a number of his enterprises, including a religiously themed amusement park called "Dinosaur Adventure Playland". This bastion to ignorance features not only depictions of humans and dinosaurs co-existing, but also a replica of the Loch Ness Monster. It's ...

Facebook kills “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” page

You can't expect a private corporation to care about something as important as free speech, but it's still a disappointment to hear the childish cries of outraged Muslims all over the world was enough for Facebook to kill the "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day" page from the "interwebs". It's equally ironic/tragic the woman responsible for the whole thing also retracted and issued a sincere apology (even going so ...

Kenyan man sacrifices own son for God

Probably one of the scariest and most disturbing stories in the Bible (yeah, I know it's hard to find one which isn't fucked up) is of Abraham and Isaac. Commanded by God to kill his son, Abraham ties up the boy and is about to plunge his dagger in his chest when he is stopped at the last minute by Metatron (that's a real angel name) and instead sacrifices an innocent animal in his stead. It's some dark shi ...

Creationism in Hampshire (revised)

I had originally written this story under the mistaken assumption that it was in New Hampshire, when it was in fact in Hampshire, England! Thanks Glenn for the clarification. I suppose it was my prejudice that England would never stoop to such lows, but I have seen the error in my ways. Of all the places thinking about introducing creationist material into classrooms, the last place I thought it would show ...

Vanity Fair reviews the Creation “Museum”

About 3 years late, the people over at Vanity Fair decided it was time to visit this mausoleum of ignorance, a testament to the strong desire of the faithfully ignorant to have their beliefs strengthened by any means necessary. The pictures in the article, strangely enough, were taken by actor Paul Bettany, the atheist actor who portrayed Charles Darwin in the movie "Creation". Watching it is on my to-do li ...
