Don’t read this version of “On the Origin of Species”

Creationism is alive and well in the United States. Despite their laughingly terrible arguments, backers of 'Intelligent Design' continue to flood educational institutions with materials they hope will throw doubt on the truth of evolution by means of natural selection. Their latest tactic is this book; a republication of Darwin's On theĀ Origin of Species with a twist; the introduction is a 50 page attack o ...

Religious wacko facing dismisal sues school district

You can't keep a good psycho down, apparently. John Freshwater is an eighth grade science teacher who denies evolution, used a high voltage lab tool in class to burn crosses on the arms of students, and told them homosexuals are evil sinners. The district first suspended him after hearing the allegations, and announced last June (yeah, the story isn't exactly "fresh" here) they were canning him. Now Freshwa ...

No more Mr. Nice Guy

I try to be polite. I really do. I have the bad habit, unfortunately, of saying the most offensive things to people without fully realizing it. So for the most part, I've accepted the fact that my opinions and ideas are unpopular with a large segment of society, and the people who happen to hear or read what I have to say will, at times, be deeply offended. My vitriol will sometimes bring the ire of many wh ...

Discovery Institute tries to censor YouTube

There are few institutions as corrupt, intellectually dishonest, and morally bankrupt as the Discovery Institute. Their name itself is a tragic irony; there is no 'discovery' going on there. All they are interested in doing is attacking the foundations of science in order to get everyone to abandon evolution in favor of creationism. They are heavily funded, ambitious, and as this video shows, without scrupl ...

Tired Christian claim #1: atheism is a religion

I thought I might slowly start making a list of tired claims Christians perpetually make about us atheists. Think of it as a huge FAQ that helps you answer some annoying claims people make about atheism without actually understanding it. First off, you might have heard this gem floating around; atheism is some kind of religion, since not believing in god is a type of faith. For instance, if I claim life aro ...

Alberta is now worse than Texas

I don't like you, Alberta. You aren't like the other provinces in this country which are generally reasonable. In the rest of Canada, religion and government don't mix. We generally try to be tolerant, polite, and nice. Now you apparently all want to be cowboys, having gone ahead and passed Bill 44. Congratulations, you have the distinction of being worse than Texas when it comes to education. How is this e ...

Pathetic video attempts to make atheism appear evil

This video attempts to make a direct link between atheists like Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins with psychotic revolutionaries like Maximilien Robespierre. The only problem, of course, is Robespierre was actually a deist, and although he may have called himself reasonable and rational, I think this quote obviously shows the man was not quite right in the head: If virtue be the spring of a popular government ...

Christian chiropractor fires employee for being an atheist

What is more Christian than discrimination? I wonder. It seems like every day I hear about someone being fired from their jobs, or losing a big promotion simply because their bosses discover they do not believe in God. I don't normally give my belief (or lack thereof) a second thought, but that's because I am lucky enough to live in a city where my religious beliefs have never been a contentious issue. Not ...

Missing link is found

Remember all those stupid arguments you had regarding evolution with your uncle? He kept asking you "well, if we come from monkeys, where's the missing link?" Well, you can now tell him the missing link is currently in Oslo, Norway. Ida, as the fossil is called, is perhaps one of the greatest fossil finds of our time. The previously oldest fossil of our ancestors was Lucy, who clocked in at roughly 3.4 mill ...
