We Stand Defeated, People

So let's surmise this man's arguments. I think God is a better explanation because I clearly don't understand cosmic evolution. The complexity of the environment is best understood by belief in an even more complex and mysterious strange force that exists outside of time and space I see design everywhere, therefore a designer best explains what I see. The alternative to my theory is the Universe popped out ...

The Universe is just like a hand bag

It's hard to quantify exactly how stupid Elisabeth Hasselbeck is. Let's spend 2 seconds talking about the eye, and why it isn't perfect. For starters, how many people have to wear glasses because of oblong or misshapen eyeballs? How about the fact we see upside down, and our brain literally has to flip it 180 degrees? Now the Octopus has an eye we should all be jealous of: A unique characteristic of the cep ...

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 ...

Biocentrism is creationism for hippies

I'm so sick and tired of the argument that because Earth sits in a "Goldilocks" zone, this must somehow mean something significant. What are the odds, some like to speculate, all of this could be the product of chance? The answer, I would argue, is the same as every single hand you've ever been dealt in poker. If you try and work backwards to calculate the odds of whatever arbitrary hand you have being deal ...

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, “a 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 believes the recent remarks of Stephen Hawking, claiming the Universe did not need a supernatur ...
