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 ...

Study attempts to explain genetic fitness of homosexual men

Here's another study that homophobic bigots can casually ignore; Two evolutionary psychologists (yes, these guys are making the news a lot recently) have offered a unique explanation as to the evolutionary value of homosexuality. You see, since gays tend to not breed, the basic question of "why would homosexuality persist if the genes for it would be selected out" hasn't yet been answered definitively. I'm ...

Higher IQ linked with atheism, liberalism, and monogamy

I took a few days off in light of my recent birthday, and while I was away, I received a ton of email concerning a study done by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa that linked IQ with atheism, liberalism, and monogamy. I figured I should probably talk about it a bit. Kanazawa believes the reason this is true is human beings are designed by natural selection to be more conservative (and therefore mor ...

Study finds abstinence-only teaching effective in delaying teen sex

Score one for the abstinence movement: a study, published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, found abstinence only teaching helped delay the age teens are having sex by as much as two years. Now, before you start cursing at the fact that the religious right is going to use this study to keep funding their veiled religious sexual education program, it's important to note even the people ...

Creationists confound us with their stupidity

It amazes me at just how arrogant creationists are in light of the fact they believe quite literally in a fairy tale explanation as to the origin of species. Here they parody the "Mac vs PC" commercials in an attempt to be both funny and relevant. It's neither. Hey morons, if you want to try and "debate" evolution, maybe it's time you did a little bit of research in the following fields: biology, genetics, ...

Malaysian Muslims attack Christians for using the word Allah

You know what I love about atheism? We don't confer words with special powers. This gives us an advantage; you won't see angry atheists taking to the streets because the word "evolution" is being misused (even though we might get tempted when jackasses like Kirk Cameron spew their anti-evolutionary nonsense around), and when's the last time an atheist firebombed a building to punish the sacrilegious use of ...

Stephen Baldwin is an embarrassment to humanity

I hate reality shows, and I especially hate D-list celebrity ones. That doesn't mean, however, that I don't occasionally enjoy watching the train wreck of stupidity that often ensues, and this latest gem of ignorance comes from our old friend Stephen Baldwin. Stephen is a born again evangelical, a fact you can't help but notice 5 seconds after meeting him. He's as passionate about his religion as he is uned ...
