Wally George is hilarious

Up until today, I had never heard of Wally George. Back in the the 1980s, Wally had a shitty little show on a UHF station. During one of his interviews, noted pacifist Blase Bonpane wigged out and flipped the interview desk in a fit of rage. The mainstream media picked up on it, and Wally found his 15 minutes of fame. His shtick was to invite people on his show and insult them for no good reason; as is evid ...

Shocker: atheists are despised!

Austin Cline over at About.com put together this comprehensive list of surveys showing just how despised atheists are as a minority. When Americans were asked who they would vote for, the atheist candidate was always the most hated one. For people like you and me, this kind of attitude seems pretty puzzling. Sure, we can be a bunch of killjoys at parties, but statistically, we are less likely to commit viol ...

Freaky/Fascinating letter

Superfan Kate forwarded me an email she received when attempting to contact the maker of the film Return of Christ. Rather than a simple "hi, thanks for contacting me", Kate got a long diatribe about this man's own personal world view. What I found most intriguing is how Josiah has mentally justified his beliefs. Here is the first part of the letter: My Hope is the first thing that distinguishes me from thi ...

The View is annoying

The quality of discourse on TV is usually quite poor, and I detest when obviously undereducated entertainers try their hand at moralizing on the issue of religion. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is physically attractive, and this fact has convinced her that she is capable of an original thought. Unfortunately, Liz is just another religious mouthpiece who hasn't actually taken the time to examine a world view not dict ...

Shermer’s take on creationists

If you've never heard of Michael Shermer, then I highly recommend you read his book The Science of Good and Evil, as well as Why people Believe Weird Things. He's the editor of Skeptics Magazine, and he's a passionate advocate of reason. Lately, Michael has been visiting different creationists trying to understand their points of view. Michael is a former Evangelical Christian, so he is familiar with the ki ...

Faith Fighter!

Here's a way to kill an afternoon and simultaneously engage in delicious blasphemy: play Faith Fighter, a web based fighting game featuring prophets and gods of different faiths. Your selection includes Jesus, Old Testament God, Ganesha, Buddha and if you pass it at least once, Xenu, the intergalactic tyrant. The game has stirred the usually controversy, with some people saying it should be taken down becau ...

Afghan women are pelted by rocks at protest

A couple of days ago, I wrote a passionate entry stating my opposition to the Canadian government's involvement in Afghanistan. It was in response to their new laws that make it impossible for women to refuse sex from their husbands, as well as making women eligible for marriage immediately following menstruation. As far as I'm concerned, these two laws alone make both rape and sexual abuse to children lega ...

Rainbow Coalition?

I've often talked about people who are on the wrong side of history. Homophobes definitely qualify. Imagine it's the future and one of these morons is your grandmother. I'm guessing you'd try and destroy any evidence of their racism to save your family honor. It would be the equivalent of finding a pamphlet in the garage with grandpa wearing a Nazi uniform. Yeah, it's going to get pretty fucking embarrassin ...

British Teachers’ Union fight faith schools

Faith schools are a terrible idea. I'm not only referring to the fact kids who go to these schools are taught a great degree of non-sense, or that a significant proportion of the British population disproves of them. The biggest problem with these schools is they segregate the population along religious lines, and in any multicultural society, this is extremely undesirable. Britain has over 7000 faith based ...

New Scientist sees through the deception in Texas

There's more info from the New Scientist about the proposed changes to the science textbooks over in Texas, and it doesn't look too promising. The Board voted to completely remove the age of the universe from the textbooks, and more importantly, they claimed students will not be penalized if they subscribe to a specific opinion on science. In other words, if a student answers on a test that the earth is 600 ...
