Stop calling medical marvels “miracles”

A fan sent me a picture of this poster he found at a local Hospital in Britain. It states "[t]he miracle of cornea transplantation can help restore sight". Miracle? That shit drives me crazy. Cornea transplants are medical marvels, made possible only because of our ever growing understanding of the human body. If it was a damn miracle, you'd be able to do the operation with a fucking toothpick and a communi ...

Stop calling medical breakthroughs “miracles”

Why is it every time medical science has a breakthrough, there's some shitty journalist out there who feels the need to call it a "miracle". Personally, I'm sick and tired of science, and scientists in general, not getting the credit for helping to improve people's lives. Here's a rather annoying example: a new scientific breakthrough helping blind people to see again using gene therapy is being described a ...

Miracle claim “smackdown”

You've got to love the way Hitchens can plainly and effectively explain why supposed miracles are not only unlikely, but also totally improbable. If you need to believe Jesus was a God, so be it; just don't try to pretend there's any science supporting your bogus claims. ...

Ray Comfort thinks this is a miracle

Ray put this link on his blog, arguing because this amputated man is making something with his life, this is one of "God's miracles". I don't think I need to remind everyone prosthetic limbs are actually an invention of science, or a loving God would have made his limb grow back (now that would be a fucking miracle!). Man, religious people sure look for any excuse to thank God, don't they? Also, don't you f ...

Medical Miracle? She was on Chemo!!!!

So, this women is on chemotherapy and has surgery to remove her tumors. They luckily didn't return, and she is cured. While her doctors were busy using science to save her life, she's given a disgusting old finger bone of some obscure dead priest by friend, and suddenly, we're supposed to forget the fact she was being treated for cancer and believe a divine miracle saved her. So while the real story is we h ...

Don’t believe in magic: believe in miracles, dummy!

As many of you know, I'm a staunch supporter of the science of evolution. Although it's a powerful yet simple idea, for many religious people, it's simply the most damning and damaging idea ever conceived. Despite the fact even the Papacy has finally and reluctantly agreed it does indeed exist, it doesn't stop people who have zero idea about how evolution works to deny it. I've read many articles and blogs ...

It’s a miracle!

Here's a video that will cheer you all up. This one shows a Benny Hinn special where a little girl, supposedly born with no brain, can now walk, count to five, and incredibly, cross her legs! What I find funny is this family was probably told their daughter was born with a brain deficiency (possibly autism), but that the parents understood this as the brain pysically not being in her head. That's good paren ...

The miracle sex changing bird

I was both amused and stunned at the news this morning of a hen spontaneously changing gender into a rooster in Calcutta, India. The owner claims the chicken had been laying eggs but for a few days ago, when it suddenly stopped and began displaying male characteristics. The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Science wrote a report in 2000 about how such changes can sometimes occur in n ...

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 ...

Walmart greeter takes time from work to tell you about burning in hellfire

Don't you love it when Christians make creepy videos telling you the 'good news' that you're a sinning piece of filth who doesn't even deserve God's awesome love? Here's a Walmart greeter to tell you that you don't have to spend forever in torment if you just accept that a 2000 year old Palestinian Jew of questionable historical merit was the creator of the cosmos. Oh, the catch is, if you don't, you'll bur ...
