Search results for "atheism"

Reality is enough for me, thanks.

Ever since Conservapedia put up a link to TGA declaring that there was "no such thing as a Good Atheist", we've been getting a lot of great comments in a number of articles. The best one so far has to be from "Bob", who is convinced that not only do we not exist, but that life on earth wouldn't be worth living if it wasn't for his imaginary buddy: I want to know just one thing, if there is NO God, NO afterl ...

I gets mail

A fan - who shall remain anonymous for reasons that will be clear in the email - sent me a letter I thought I would share with the rest of you. I'm not the best at giving advice to people in awkward situation like his, but since this is an atheism site, readers are bound to have opinions that they're only too happy to share. Hi Jake, How do I ask my boss for Friday off to attend the Texas Freethought Conven ...

Jerry Buell should be fired

Times are hard in America. Job security is eroding fast, as is the middle class. This puts everyone on edge, which would explain some of the blow-back from fans concerning my opinion that there is something fundamentally broken with the way teachers are unionized in America. Of course, that's not to imply that I want to destroy all the rights workers have managed to harangue from the clutches of the very we ...

What’s the Point?

Times are desperate for Christians in the Netherlands. One in every 6 clergymen is either an atheist or an agnostic, so in an effort not to lose his job, the Rev. Klaas Hendrikse has invented a special form of Christianity that: a. Doesn't believe Jesus existed historically [the Gnostics beat him to it though] b. Doesn't believe in the afterlife [ditto the Jews] c. Doesn't believe a God exists at all [that ...

Feticide laws used to prosecute women, not men

I've written in the past on the dangers of having fetal homicide laws. While originally intended to help prosecute any man whose violent assault causes a still birth. As you might have guessed, the law has yet to actually be used on any guys. Only one dude was ever facing charges, and they were dropped. Meanwhile, hundreds of women have been charged, including a 15 year old whose coke habit is being blamed ...

Kent Hovind gets spanked

If you don't remember Kent Hovind, it might be because you've come into the atheism scene a little late. He's currently in jail for failing to pay taxes on a number of his enterprises, including a religiously themed amusement park called "Dinosaur Adventure Playland". This bastion to ignorance features not only depictions of humans and dinosaurs co-existing, but also a replica of the Loch Ness Monster. It's ...

Conservapedia tries to call out Penn Jillette

This is just plain weird: convinced of the superiority of their "argument" (mainly that their super-dad made everything so a few white people can enjoy it), they've decided to specifically target Penn Jillette to a debate on evolution. Firstly, they want him to answer their "15 questions evolutionists can't answer", a grab-bag collection of old creationist canards they think has merit. I'll summarize them h ...

Oh no, I’m too aggressive!

Could this guy be more wrong? Here are a couple of choice passages I couldn't help but comment on (as I'm sure most of you will dissect the rest). As crusading atheism is sort of a cause today, it is popular, I don’t want to say among scientists, I mean that’s too general and it isn’t so. Is it ironic for a Christian to use the word "Crusade" when talking about atheism? I sometimes wish these clowns would s ...

Creationist Pimp Harun Yahya is back

Remember Harun Yahya? He's the Turkish creationist that published a book called "The Atlas of Creation", his attempt to "prove" that animals were created spontaneously by his personal God. Most of the pictures in this massive 768 page monstrosity are ripped right off the Internet. One picture of a fly is in fact a metal lure. Yes, he's that fucking incompetent. Harun Yahya is the pseudonym of Adnan Oktar, 5 ...

OrangeCor gets it done

Cool billboard guys. I admire this kind of really organized, grass-roots level of atheism. That's how you get all the fence sitters to start speaking out about their own non-belief. Congratulations to Orange County Coalition of Reason for their billboard, and anyone in the area, you might be interested to know that they have a number of events planned in May. Be sure to check them out. ...
