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 ...

Conservative pizza mogul builds new Eden

I don't spend a lot of time wondering where my money goes when I buy food. I figure it's going to the employees, the owner of the franchise, and whatever is left goes to some obscure CEO locked up in an office, counting his money.

Accommodation or confrontation?

Genesis Code, coming soon to a DVD bargain bin

I'm looking forward to watching this poorly acted piece of propaganda for a few reasons. 1) I get to watch Lance Henriksen's career continue to be flushed down the toilet, 2) It stars well known MMA fighter Rich Franklin, who also cut the ribbon at the creationist museum, and 3) I get to watch how Christians portray non-believers, which is always guaranteed comedic gold. I suppose it'll also be pretty hilar ...
