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 ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 99

This week, Ryan and I take your questions for a very special mailbag episode. We cover everything from abortion to evolution, to why we hate Indiana Jones and the Crystal skull. If you love the show, this one is a monster at over 1:30 minutes, so you might even need to break it up if you can't take that much content! ...

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 ...

South Park creators threatened over depiction of Mohammed

There are few certainties in life, but you can always count on: 1) death is inevitable, 2) you will always have to pay taxes, and 3) Muslims will always flip the fuck out if you depict their prophet, no matter how innocent it is. Case in point: Matt Stone and Trey Parker are again the subject of controversy for their 200th episode, which featured Mohammed in a Bear suit to hide his identity. As you might ha ...

Jesus penis abs causes controversy

It's hard to draw the human body; take it from me, I should know. If you're not completely familiar with all the muscles and what they look like, your design might end up looking a little bit off. Take this crucifix, for instance: The artist is clearly drawing on older versions of depictions of Jesus, and at first glance, it would appear rather than having normal abdominal muscles, this skinny Jesus is spor ...

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 ...

5 “challenges” to atheism

Someone sent me a link to this video and wanted me to answer his 5 challenges. Since I'm relatively bored and feeling productive, I though I'd give it a try. 1) Is chance the same as "God in the Gaps" when explaining the origin of life? If you can't accept probability and chance, then you can't accept reality. It would be swell if we lived in a deterministic Universe, but the simple fact is we don't. Mutati ...

Last Supper has more food now

Here's a weird study; a pair of academics analyzed some of the more famous paintings of the Last Supper over the past thousand years, and found the food portions depicted in the paintings seemed to have grown by 69.2%. So rather than the anemic portions that were common before a serious revolution in the way we produce food, today's paintings offer a larger variety and abundance of food stuffs. It just goes ...
