Search results for "evolution"

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 ...

French Muslims demand state schools make changes

France has a problem; it seems as though Muslims are not integrating well in their country, and many are making unrealistic demands of secular schools, including adding halal to the cafeteria menus, sizing down courses that teach about other world religions, and an opt-out option for classes about the evolution, the Holocaust, or France's war in Algeria. In other words, they want an education that matches t ...

Glenn Beck is shockingly ignorant

I don't consider myself an expert on evolution; however, I've devoted a considerable amount of time studying the matter, if for no other reason than to try and understand humanity. The answers to some of our most puzzling questions become obvious once you realize we are nothing more than apes that have evolved over millions of years from a common ancestor to other primates. While our chimpanzee cousin's "ev ...

Christine O’Donnell is Hilariously Ignorant

In just a few minutes, not only does she fail to properly answer the question of whether or not she believes in evolution (were you too afraid to say no, baby?), but she accuses her opponent of being a Marxist because he wants to raise taxes (and because of a tongue-in-cheek article he wrote as a young man). When she says "raising taxes, which is a tenet of Marxism", the face on Chris Coons is pretty damn h ...

Ray Comfort is hilariously dumb

A few days ago I wrote an article about a crusty old religious white dude who claimed to know more about the Universe than Stephen Hawking, presumably because a dusty old book of myths told him so. Because Stephen had the "audacity" to postulate the Universe created itself, religious rubes have been tripping over one another trying to voice their objections to one of history's greatest minds smacking down t ...

Old white guy thinks atheism is “a joke”

I'll never grow tired of old, conservative gas-bags going on about how atheism is either dead, on it's way out, or, as this crusty old white dude said, ÔÇťa joke". Because he's convinced only an invisible male patriarchal God is the proper explanation as to the existence of the Universe, columnist William Murchison┬ábelieves the recent remarks of Stephen Hawking, claiming the Universe did not need a supernatur ...

Christians are inadvertently hilarious

If you're a regular to the site, you're bound to have read an article I wrote a while ago called "10 reasons why Superman is better than Jesus", my tongue-in-cheek comparison of these two fictional characters. This article still receives a lot of traffic, not to mention endless comments about how I'm supposed to believe there really was a historical Jesus (if you want to read a great article explaining just ...

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 ...

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 ...

What lessons can we learn for Ken Ham?

Here's Answers in Genesis douche Ken Ham doing his best to misinform children about objective reality. We're all aware of his refusal to accept Evolution, and he's quite clear about exactly why: he thinks the idea was invented in an effort to undermine God. That's what's so great about it. Ken, unlike his more "moderate" counterparts, understands correctly the conclusion we are to draw from Evolutionary The ...
