Bad Creationism debating tactics obliterated

Are you an idiot who wants desperately to continue to believe in a supernatural entity despite no evidence to do so? Are you intimidated by science, and how it conflicts with your supernatural understanding of the world? Are you concerned evolution makes your Cosmogony seem infantile and basic by comparison? Then head on over to Creationtips.com, where you can learn a whole slew of idiotic talking points, s ...

Protect us from Cyclones, Christians!

There's a storm-a-brewin' in Australia, and a controversial church group called "Catch the Fire Ministries". Their leader, a nutjob by the name of Daniel Nalliah, is crazy enough the Family First Party asked him to step down as a candidate after he published brochures that said God would destroy "Satan's Strongholds", which included mosques and Buddhist temples. Nalliah's big problem right now is the Prime ...

Jesus wants to give you Hepatitis

When you're a Catholic priest, one of your supposed powers is the ability to transform wine into the blood of your dead Savior. This supposed divine skill is called "transubstantiation", and it's about the lamest power you could confer on anyone. I've always been surprised parishioners believe this happens, since they should be able to tell it's definitely wine they are drinking during Communion. I guess yo ...

S.E. Cupp is annoying

It's funny whenever a non-believer states plainly no evidence exists that would satisfy the "God question", we're accused of being snobs, elitists, mean, or even fundamentalists. Have you noticed no one seems to accuse us of of having the weaker argument or of being wrong. Instead, we're vilified as being "spiritual buzzkills". I've long had doubts about S.E. Cupp's atheism, if only because she seems to lac ...

Religion is loony

The Elizabeth Smart kidnapping trial is finally over, and because Brian David Mitchel (or Immanuel as he liked to call himself) was found guilty, the question of his mental state, and the mental state of religious people, is being brought to light. It seems, however, rather than an honest look at the delusion of belief, we're treated to a rigmarole of "experts" who seem to be too busy defending religious be ...

Another study tells us something we already know

I feel this has already been confirmed so many times it personally bores me: yet another study found people with higher intelligence tend to not believe in God. Professor Lynn at Ulster University in the UK published a study that found the "intellectual elite" seriously devoid of religion when compared to their less educated counter-parts. The study also found since the last time the Royal Society was surve ...

Are Skeptics feeling left out in the cold?

The relationship between skepticism and atheism is complicated. For starters, skepticism is a process with which you evaluate information and claims, while atheism is merely the absence of belief in the supernatural claims of various religions in regard to a "higher power". Despite the fact we all agree that skepticism is more of a "toolkit" to evaluate claims rather than an actual belief, invariably there ...

Atheists are perverse!

With newfound confidence comes new problems. As atheists, we're beginning to see a backlash against rationalism from our sectarian counterparts who feel threatened by our lack of faith. They see it as "perverse" and a "threat to society". That's according to Italy's Foreign Minister Franco Frattini who called on Muslims, Jews and Christians to unite against atheism, materialism and relativism. Christians al ...

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 ...
