How to spank a creationist

I like Ken, and I appreciate the hard work he does to fight creationism, despite sharing many of their beliefs. The saddest thing about him, however, is he still tries to reconcile his ludicrous superstitious beliefs with science. By the end of his book, Finding Darwin's God, I had to shake my head in disbelief as he tried to use quantum indeterminacy as a mechanism with which God influences evolution. Fuck ...

Louisiana dummies shocked that kids are learning Evolution

Ah, creationism; no matter how you dress it up, it's still a steaming pile of horse shit. Every year it's the same thing: a group of ignorant and highly religious parents become upset their children are actually receiving an education as to how life adapts and changes over time, and their reaction is to try and insert their creationist materials (which they hilariously call "intelligent design") into classr ...

Teacher Fail

Here's a clip from a BBC documentary "Science Friction" which aired back in '96. As you can see, very little has changed or improved since then. Ignorant jackasses like Joe Wilkey still think they have some sort of powerful insight about creationism that justifies their literal interpretation of mythology. Never mind the fact he's totally violating the law by teaching his creationist nonsense in school; he' ...

GOP candidate defends his creationist beliefs

What's wrong with this particular story: a GOP candidate gets "accused" of supporting the teaching of evolution in classrooms, and of saying the Bible is not the infallible word of God, and his reaction to the ad is to re-affirm his commitment to the idea the Earth is only 6000 years old. As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a mast ...

Calamities of Nature

A fan of the site (they exist apparently) sent me a link to this webcomic, Calamities of Nature,  and I thought some of them had some pretty genuinely funny and interesting points to make about religion, the Pope, and creationism. I feel as though the character of Aaron has a lot in common with little old me. I just have to ask one question though: where the fuck are his eyes? ...

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 ...

Why journalists can’t help but put “evolution is wrong” in their headlines

I regularly read "The Guardian". They normally have a pretty decent science coverage, but the latest article entitled "Why everything you know about evolution is wrong" outraged me enough I felt the need to talk about it. The article starts simply enough, referring to the burgeoning science of epigenetics, and how some researchers are finding genes that become expressed due to environmental factors can effe ...

Teach the Controversy

Here's a great video from Atheist Cartoons showing just how ridiculous the notion of "teach the controversy" really is. If every bullshit controversy was allowed to be part of a school curriculum, there would be no end to the nonsense kids would be exposed to. If you want to try and teach your kids the nonsense that is creationism, do it on your own damn time, and leave the rest of us out of it! ...

Smithsonian gives shitty creationist movie the boot

The more evidence we gather showing the truth about evolution, the more vitriolic creationists get. Recently they tried to sneak a shitty "documentary" called Darwin's Dilemma into the Smithsonian's IMAX theater, but they were smacked down when the California Science Center used a special clause in the contract to cancel their engagement. The Discovery Institute is now trying to sue the CSC for not allowing ...
