Idaho creationists want their own monument to ignorance

Hey Idaho, were you feeling left out of this whole evolution-creation "debate"? Are you tired of scientists telling you that the earth is 4.5 billion years old instead of only 6000? Well, then you should donate every spare dollar you have to the Northwest Science Museum. Although they have yet to even raise enough money for their pathetic displays, it certainly hasn't affected their enthusiasm for this proj ...

IHOP calls Oprah Winfrey the Anti-Christ

Here's what's fucking scary about believers: some of them take it so seriously that concerns over their own well-being is secondary. For true believers, a tiny bunk-bed, barely enough food to subsist, and countless hours spent trying to recruit new zombies isn't a chore; it's a calling, baby! It is how a pathetically small church, with the hilarious acronym of IHOP (International House of Prayer, not Pancak ...

The Dutch say no to kosher

It's weird how the word kosher, which typically means "proper" or "legitimate", has become such an important part of our vernacular. It's especially weird that the concept of kosher is really a series of arbitrary rules that make little to no sense. For instance, according to Leviticus, animals that have cloved hooves and chew cud are clean, but animals that have only one of these qualities are not. Jews al ...

God Said

From the songwriter's own words: I wrote a song called GOD SAID after watching Pat Robertson declare that the earthquake in Haiti was because of a curse from God. After hearing A man named Rev Wiley say that he was praying for President Obama's death during the election (the prayer didn't work BTW). After hearing people fiddle around with the idea of a curse on Japan after their recent disaster. After heari ...

What’s going on this week

Hi Gang, You might have noticed that posting this week is a little light. That's because I'm helping Carisa with her Prop and Circus Arts festival called "Light and Motion". The event is this Saturday, so until it's over, we'll be posting sporadically for a little while. For those of you in the Calgary area, if you have any friends that want to learn fire breathing, poi spinning, or the business of show biz ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 136 1/2

This week we have an extra long show (clocking in at over 2 hours) to make up for the fact that this week I'll be taking a bit of a break as Carisa and I put the finishing touches on Light and Motion, Western Canada's Prop and Circus Arts Festival. I'll be doing the catering at the event, so posting and shows will be a little light this week. My special guest this week is Chris Tenz, who helped to score the ...

William Lane Craig tries to defend Biblical genocides

A few weeks ago I posted a video of a debate between Sam Harris and William Lane Craig. The video made it clear that Craig is no dummy, despite believing in absurdities. He's been particularly busy recently defending the faith, and one of his latest articles tries to justify the genocide and infanticide in the Bible. It's pretty messed up, actually: According to the Pentateuch (the first five books of the O ...

Suicide Bombings are not political in nature

In a large Suffi shrine in Southern Pakistan, two young men with explosives strapped on their backs navigate nervously through a packed crowd. They are looking for an ideal place to murder as many of their fellow human beings as possible. The plan is surprisingly evil: the second boy is there to detonate himself the moment help arrives to care for the victims of the first attack. As chance would have it, Um ...

Bill Donohue sucks hard

You've got to admire Bill Donohue - in a rather sick and twisted way - for his unique ability to always "up the ante" of shitty things to say. He's really an artist of sorts, effortlessly dispatching the truth whenever it seems to be inconvenient, and compensating by making outlandishly false statements, all in a futile attempt to defend what is arguably one of the most corrupt institutions in the world. To ...

Love wins, Christianity loses

The Evangelical world may not be as coherent and homogeneous as some would lead you to believe. For one thing, they can't seem to properly contain the apostasy of Pastor Robert Bell, who has been preaching from Mars Hill a theology that takes special efforts to exclude Hell. Bell credits a conversation he had about Ghandi. When a parishoner kindly reminded him he was slowly roasting in the fires of Hell, so ...
