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 ...

Steven Pinker: How Violence has Declined

If you've listened to my shows recently, you know how big a fan of Pinker I am, including his most brilliant work "The Better Angels of our Nature: Why Violence has Declined". If you haven't read this lengthy beast, this talk actually covers the basics really well. A must listen! ...

Evolution is a lie because dogs have never been on the moon.

Truly there is no greater comedic bastion than Facebook. It's the only place you can find such a high concentration of crazy outside of the Phelps compound. The combination of free expression and ignorance is a constant reminder that as a species, we still have a long way to go. Every once in a while, someone crafts an argument so brilliant, you just have to stand back in awe at the inspired mind that came ...

Andrew Sullivan doesn’t know what the fuck he’s talking about

I hate the way non-scientists keep arguing that "science doesn't know everything", or that "new research supports my [insert bullshit idea here]. The latest confused buffoon is Andrew Sullivan, who has a new section where you can ask him questions. It seems that he's been reading the same book I have (Pinker's "Angels of our Better Natures; Why violence has declined), but he's come to vastly different concl ...

The deadliest nerds

Seriously, religious people have to be the deadliest geeks of all time. According to Steven Pinker's new book "The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined", their wars account for 13 of the worst 100 mass killings of all time (check out his interview with Sam Harris here). So far, followers of Lucas of Whedon have yet to do more than throw lame-ass conventions. No offence. (via Unreasonable F ...

5 Life Lessons I learned from “The Unbeatables”

You can learn a lot from a video. Did you know that all drugs, once your brain is "on them", will resemble a fried egg? I know this for a fact because Rachel Leah Cook smashed someone's house up with a frying pan to prove it. Clearly, lessons abound in the digital format, so I thought it might be nice to extract some lessons of our own from this Christian cartoon courtesy of NuBeat Music (a Christian music ...

Gay marriage: a sign of End times

Oh crazy bigoted religious people...I'm not sure they know what they want, sometimes. Take this clown, Pastor Scott Lively. Last year he came under fire for publishing a book called "The Pink Swastika", where he claimed Nazi Germany was being run by homofascists (his word). He was laying low for a little while, but now he's back to blaming gays for everything. This time, he believes they will bring about th ...

Billy Ray Cyrus is an idiot

I don't expect celebrities to be beacons of rational and coherent thought, especially when their claim to fame is a terrible song and an equally terrible TV show. Billy Ray Cyrus was recently interviewed by GQ, and he claims Hollywood has destroyed his perfect family life. He believes the root of all of this evil has something to do with a freeway sign they would pass by on their way to the Hannah Montana s ...

Shocker: New study finds American adults are dumb

What's got me riled up today? It could be this recent survey by the Pew forum on Religion and Public life found over two thirds of the adult population of the US believes in angels. And when I say angels, I don't mean dudes like Metatron who only show up when a deranged father is about to kill his youngest son. No, I'm talking about the kinds that are all over the place, supposedly protecting people. I gues ...
