Pink Swastika author Scott Lively charged with crimes against humanity

If you don't know who Scott Lively is, he's the monster who authored The Pink Swastika, a book I've derided in the past for its pseudo-historical claim that Nazis were a secret gay organization intent on destroying heterosexuality. It ranks about as high as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in terms of historical verisimilitude. In March of 2009, Scott and a posse of other Evangelical Christians traveled ...

Who needs a lab when you have a green screen?

You know what's great about being an 'Intelligent Design' scientist? You get to save all of the money you would normally be spending on electron microscopes, computers, DNA sequencing machines or a host of other expensive equipment. Why bother to invest in technology when your premise is the world of make-believe is more real than the physical one? The only 'equipment' you need is a lab coat, a Bible, and a ...

Answers in Genesis writes hilarious letter to atheists

For some odd reason, I love the idea that there are religious believers out there who try to convert atheists back to religion. I can't imagine a more pointless exercise. They really think there must be some magical argument to 'win us' back to the fold. They can't understand our decision not to believe in God is the result of years of slow and gradual change, ultimately leading to the conclusion that the p ...

What a textbook in Louisiana looks like

You all know by now that the educational system in Louisiana is rapidly deteriorating thanks to Governor Bobby Jindal and his relentless crusade to institute voucher programs that end up benefiting religiously run schools. He may have come out recently begging for the GOP not to become the 'stupid party', but he's actively working to ensure his constituents are ever more ignorant about the real world. The p ...

The Internet forgets nothing, and sometimes that sucks

I'm all for expressing one's opinion (I wouldn't be doing this web shit if I didn't), but I feel it's my duty to remind young people that the Internet never forgets, and it has a tendency to shame your ass whenever you say something stupid. Do you honestly think the opinions you express as a teenager will carry on to adulthood? I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm kind of glad the Internet and its am ...

Get ready for some free energy!

When I was a teen, I bought into the bullshit that is Qi (sometimes spelled 'chi'). I couldn't help it: if you've ever watched the Shaolin Monks do their thing, you might understand why I thought their impressive physical feats were only made possible because of some superhuman element. Fueled by the mythology of comic book heroes, I desperately wanted it to be true (which I was to later learn is the first ...

Dr. Pepper ad upsets dumb people

My friends and loved ones will testify to my undying love of Dr. Pepper. I like the taste, I like the logo, and for a while, I even had a Dr. Pepper background on my x-box. You could say I was a little obsessed with the drink, to say the least. Now I'm officially in love, considering the fact that the company's new ad - featuring a monkey evolving into a man after having found a can of Dr. Pepper - has upse ...

Who wants to make 8k in gold bullion from this moron?

There's a part of me (a small one, I assure you) that admires the conviction of creationists. They, at least, are honest about the fact that the science of evolution is a pretty huge slap in the face to the notion of a creator God. Not only does it completely invalidate their silly mythology, it also clearly indicates that human beings are a product of descent with modification, and not some special creatio ...
