Nightline to debate the existence of Satan

It's funny how little TV time atheists actually get. You would think we made bad guests or something. Nightline is having a debate on the existence of Satan, and the only people engaged in this discussion are ones who have no real understanding of the natural world. The 'No' side has Deepak Chopra, the New Age moron who thinks nature had to be intelligently designed because of its complexity. Also on the No ...

‘The Secret’ to happiness isn’t thinking, apparently

New Age Meets Conspicuous Consumption You might not be aware of this, but there are apparently only three things you need to do to make your life better and more prosperous; first ask the universe, then align yourself to it, and finally, reap the rewards of your materialistic fantasizing. If this sounds familiar, that's because it's not unlike what you did as a child, waiting for Santa Claus to bring you yo ...

This guy is so wrong it hurts

The Internet is weird. I've been blogging for so long that sometimes I just gloss over the fact that it's filled with weirdos, and the people who love them. The thing that makes the web so interesting a place is you never know when they'll come crawling out of the woodwork. Case in point: in 2010 I wrote an article critical of "biocentrism", this rather egotistical belief that the Earth is perfectly suitabl ...

CHAPTER 1: GENESIS   Creation: Part One In the beginning of everything that ever was, God created the heavens and the Earth. A boring, formless mass of liquid cloaked in darkness, the Earth had relatively low property value but tons of potential. The Spirit of God, hovering above it like a comic book villain, said “Let there be light” and the whole place lit up magically without any point of origin. To ...

Dave Foley the Atheist

When I was 14 years old, there was nothing more important to me than Kids in the Hall. At the time, it was the most ground-breaking comedy series in Canada; nothing was off limits. So image my shock and delight after I found this gem: Dave Foley has some new stand-up, and a lot of it involves shitting on religion. Made my day. Now, if only I can get famous enough to interview him... ...

A company in Ferndale, Washington is recalling 56 of its products after FDA tests found traces of penicillin in it: “FDA has determined that these products have the potential to contain penicillin or derivatives of penicillin, which may be produced during the fermentation process,” the agency s ...

Even Christians think “God’s not Dead” sucks

By now, I'm sure you've all heard about this movie: God's Not Dead. It's the story of a bunch of Christians getting suckered out of their money, saving God from a bunch of super meany atheists. Like most of the cheesy crap they throw on film, this particular Christian movie is like a giant cameo of failed careers. Kevin Sorbo plays a hateful atheist teacher who rejects God when his mother dies of cancer whe ...
