Wally George is hilarious

Up until today, I had never heard of Wally George. Back in the the 1980s, Wally had a shitty little show on a UHF station. During one of his interviews, noted pacifist Blase Bonpane wigged out and flipped the interview desk in a fit of rage. The mainstream media picked up on it, and Wally found his 15 minutes of fame. His shtick was to invite people on his show and insult them for no good reason; as is evid ...

GOP hates science

Republicans have slowly turned into a bunch of science hating rednecks. They deny every piece of science that contradicts their narrow 'God gave us oil for our use' view. This guy has refused to answer the question of whether or not he believes in evolution. He either doesn't or refuses to admit he does to please his undereducated and extremely religious constituents. Both of these possibilities are upsetti ...

Alberta is run by morons

I can't beat around the bush when it comes to Alberta and their education policy: moronic is too kind a word, but I'm working on toning down my swearing. Their government is proposing a new bill allowing parents to pull their children from discussions of evolution or homosexuality in public schools, and it's expected to pass. Parents who want their children to be sheltered from evolutionary fact, or from se ...

Freaky/Fascinating letter

Superfan Kate forwarded me an email she received when attempting to contact the maker of the film Return of Christ. Rather than a simple "hi, thanks for contacting me", Kate got a long diatribe about this man's own personal world view. What I found most intriguing is how Josiah has mentally justified his beliefs. Here is the first part of the letter: My Hope is the first thing that distinguishes me from thi ...

Shermer’s take on creationists

If you've never heard of Michael Shermer, then I highly recommend you read his book The Science of Good and Evil, as well as Why people Believe Weird Things. He's the editor of Skeptics Magazine, and he's a passionate advocate of reason. Lately, Michael has been visiting different creationists trying to understand their points of view. Michael is a former Evangelical Christian, so he is familiar with the ki ...

More books on how atheists are ‘ignorant’

Normally I don't pay much attention to those who ceaselessly attack Dawkins and Hitchens, mostly because although I respect and enjoy their books, they are not the definitive works on the subject of atheism. Yes, both The God Delusion and God is Not Great make powerful cases against believing in God, but to say these two tomes somehow embody all of the principles of atheism would be a lie, one that Terry Ea ...

Why is the atheist movement so pale?

Atheist Revolution asks: why is the atheist movement is so dominated by white people? It's something I've often wondered myself. I know many African American communities are often defined by their faith, which makes sense; after all, the civil rights movement was largely supported by black churches and their congregants. African American culture is still largely defined by religion, and as such, it is likel ...

The unintended hilarity of creationists

Don't you just love the Internet? Everyone on this planet has an opinion, and we have access to billions of different ones in all different languages. The Internet is just like real life; it's filled with plenty of crap, a plethora of porn, and it's also populated by some truly wacky and unintentionally hilarious people. Take for example this website called ScienceagainstEvolution.org. The site looks like G ...

Harris and Warren debate on Newsweek

No, contrary to what you may believe, this isn't Sam Harris day, although I will admit the man has been on a bit of a tear lately. Here's his debate with Rick Warren on Newsweek. Warren does what most religious people do in debates: create an intangible metaphysical entity that defies both explanation and reason, and most notably, scrutiny. Here's an interesting back and forth that shows you the level of un ...

Canadian parliament member James Lunney is an idiot

I've often been accused of being anti-American. It's true I love to criticize the crazy things that go on down there, but I'm well aware stupidity, ignorance and bigotry are not uniquely American. Here's a classic example of Canadian idiocy care of James Lunney, Conservative member of Parliament: Mr. Speaker, recently we saw an attempt to ridicule the presumed beliefs of a member of this House and the belie ...
