We’re the ones with magical thinking?

When trying to defend your religion, you've to pick your battles. In today's modern world, defending the Bible is a full time job. If you aren't busy arguing that the supposed genocide of the Canaanites or Hittites was justified because a bearded sky-deity told the Jews to do it, you're hopelessly defending things like homophobia and slavery. What else can you expect from a series of books written thousands ...

Pope denounces Maryland legalizing gay marriage

Pope Benedict XVI, a celibate man who controls a vast fortune and an army of delusional homophobes, has criticized Americans for granting all their citizens the same rights in the state of Maryland. "He added that the traditional family and marriage had to be "defended from every possible misrepresentation of their true nature" because, he said, whatever injured families injured society. So many ruined live ...

A place for us to grieve

Death is hard on those who accept its terminal reality. There's no magical playland in the sky, there's no transference or retention of our thought patterns, and there's no evidence whatsoever that the mind is anything more than the brain. Materialism may not be appealing to the majority of the population, but it's undeniably the only reality so far to manifest itself. These supernatural fairy-tales we've c ...

Woman held captive by Scientologists for 12 years

Scientology is messed up. What else do you expect from a "religion" created by a poor science-fiction writer with delusions of grandeur? There's so much wrong with it, it's hard to know exactly where to start the list of fucked up shit they do. Convince people with mental disabilities or brain imbalances that drugs are bad, vitamins are the answer and psychiatry is evil? Check. Find a way to take more and m ...

Why is Christianity growing in China?

If you were hoping that China would be immune from faith-pimps because of their long history of non-belief, then I apologize in advance for shattering your delusion. Not only is there a strong tendency for superstition in the country, they appear just as vulnerable as the rest of us to religious nonsense. How else can you explain the rise of Christianity in the East? It is impossible to say how many Christi ...

Question everything, except your belief in God, of course!

Remember that hilarious "15 questions Evolutionists can't answer" pamphlet? The people behind this mongrel document have decided to expand their effort and launched a campaign called "question evolution". Their goal is simple: to make children question one of the best theories in all of science because it conflicts with their limited world view. The video tries to make people believe that this campaign is r ...

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 ...

People with faith are blind

Honestly, can we stop pussyfooting around this issue? I feel like I'm the bad guy here every time I have to tell some delusional sheep his beliefs are unsound nonsense. The problem is made even worse when the person in question is actually educated. It would appear no one is immune to dumb ideas. In the case of intelligent people, their own elaborate justifications create a kind of intellectual fog blinding ...

Accommodation or confrontation?

Since arriving in Calgary, I made a simple promise to myself I would further my involvement in the local atheist community. It was therefore fortuitous that after only of few days of adjusting to my new surroundings, an opportunity to meet up with other atheists presented itself in the form of a lecture. Held at the University of Calgary last night, it was entitled "The Evolution-Creation Controversy". Dr. ...
