More awesome mail

I got this email from Joel who has been listening for a while and felt "inspired" by some of my "be a dick" rants. Jake, I've been a loyal listener for a few months now and I'm proud to say I seized a perfect opportunity to "be a dick" today. As I was boarding my subway, headed home from an afternoon in Manhattan, I saw three guys in suits carrying Bibles and pictures of a crucified Jesus. I thought, "here ...

Christians in denial over their own ignorance

Remember how a few weeks ago a religious survey found atheists and agnostics scored the highest of any other demographic? Religious rubes have been chiming in ever since, trying to make sense of the fact when compared to the average atheist, Christians are considerably more ignorant when it comes to their own faith. The latest windbag to write about this is Nancy J. Thomas, who not only tries to defend the ...

Religious Freedom is a Paradox

If there's one thing you have to credit religion with, it's their ability to insert themselves into things, often painfully and occasionally in a way that merits jail time, but mysteriously enough results in no real punishment. Religion is so skilled at doing this they manage to convince throngs of people to believe without them, the fabric of their lives would fall apart. Take marriage for instance, how ma ...

People need alternatives to shitty religions

Ayaan Hirshi Ali has written a new book out called Nomad, which picks up where Infidel left off and covers Hirshi Ali's move to the United States from Europe. She's been on a book tour for the past few weeks, and I recently caught her on Real Time with Bill Maher and the Colbert Report. She didn't get to say much on Real Time but she did mention something on Colbert about offering up more moderate religions ...

More evidence that S.E. Cupp is disingenuous

Here's a great video exposing some of the more questionable things S.E. Cupp has said in trying to pander to the religious right. Now, whether or not she's wasting her breath talking to Christians who simply don't like her because she says she's not a believer, or is appealing to a strange demographic of conservative non-believers who somehow WANT Christianity to have more influence in government and cultur ...

Blaise Pascal gets schooled

Now just because Blaise Pascal was a brilliant man, it certainly doesn't mean he wasn't occasionally staggeringly ignorant. Pascal's Wager always struck me as the shallowest, and least convincing argument for belief that mysteriously continues to persist. He completely dismisses the countless religions out there a person could also choose to believe simply because of his own preference towards Christianity. ...

Is S.E. Cupp an atheist?

On one of the podcasts, Ryan commented on the fact he felt that there shouldn't be a "purity" test when it came to atheism. While I agree no one should need to prove they are a true nonbeliever, you have to wonder if there aren't a few who "fake it" for financial and political gain. Take the laughingly ignorant S.E. Cupp, who's been making the rounds as Fox News' new token "atheist". She's written a book su ...

World Nut Daily does it again

Do you not rejoice at the endless display of insanity that is the World Net Daily? I am utterly in awe of this website's ability to draw such a huge audience, while simultaneously being one of the ugliest, more poorly presented idiot "news" sites on the planet. It looks like the late 90's puked all over this thing. Today's crusty old man with a religious chip on his shoulder is one David Kupelian, whose art ...

What religious “logic” looks like

I absolutely love whenever desperate Christians try and argue their superstitious beliefs somehow correspond to objective reality. These exercises in futility reminds us why there is a profound incompatibility between truth and religious faith. This article here is a good example of the mental gymnastics religionists have to go through to prove their beliefs weren't simply conjured out of nowhere by a small ...

America, you still crazy

Normally, if you hear about a plot by an armed civilian militia trying to kill government officials, you figure it's happening in some unstable developing country. It's hard to believe in this day and age, the most powerful and wealthy country in the world also seems to have similar problems with armed maniacs trying to overthrow the present authority. A few days ago, police and FBI agents arrested 9 home g ...
