Miley Ray Cyrus angers fans over “atheist” tweet

I've been trying very hard to not like Miley Cyrus, but it's starting to look like this may be impossible. Maybe it's the fact that she keeps smoking pot even when the LA times gets all preachy about it. To top it all off, she recently re-tweeted an atheist meme on her twitter courtesy of Laurence Krauss: Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And the atoms in your left hand probably came f ...

Judge dismisses sectarian assault on Atheist, blames him instead

Imagine you get physically assaulted for speaking your mind, and when it was time for your attacker to face justice, he's sent merrily on his way by a Judge who shares his specific religious convictions. Would you not regard this as a gross miscarriage of justice? Well, that's exactly what happened to fellow non-believer Ernest Perce, who was assaulted last October during a parade. Representing the Pennsylv ...

Creationist Alert!

It's only been a few days since it's been up, but already the forums are lighting up like the fourth of July. One topic that immediately caught my eye came courtesy of user DexM felt too important not to promote: The Christian club at my high school has invited creationist Bill Morgan from http://www.fishdontwalk.com/ to speak at one of their meetings. Needless to say I’m organizing a rapid response team to ...

A lesson we can learn from David Albo

Ladies, I know how frustrated, angry and terrified you are about the current "War on Contraception" that the Right is currently engaged in. You have every right to be, especially when it's being framed not as a reproductive rights issue, but rather as a "religious freedom" issue. The solution comes from an unlikely source: Virginia Rep. David Albo. In the above video, this moron describes his failure to ban ...

Richard Dawkins / Archbishop of Canterbury debate

It still amazes me the way we let experts on nonsense babble on about their specific deity and its role in the natural world. What does super-magical-man-you-can't-disprove have to do with evolution? The moderator made the mistake of claiming both Dawkins and the Archbishop knew for certain what the truth of the Universe was. Dawkins ended up admitting the limitations of his own understanding (and the obvio ...

Quebec gets a “thumbs up”

There aren't a lot of opportunities to be proud of your government these days. As a beleaguered young(ish) male anxious to blame others for his failures, I see every incompetent bureaucratic farce (of which there really are too many to name) and forget that occasionally, they get something right. In this case, it was refusing the appeal of two unnamed parents who wanted their children pulled from a religiou ...

This idiot makes us all look bad

As some of you may know, I am not an American. I'm your neighbor from the Great White North (who is supposed to spell neighbor with a "u" but doesn't to avoid confusion), which means that my attitude regarding finances and politics tends to be more on the left than your average apple pie baking Good Old Boy. I was born in the province of Quebec, perhaps the most socialist of all the provinces in this countr ...

Catholic church sees writing on the wall

Religions are finally starting to understand that the scientific revolution, and the information age is eroding the power of their institution. It turns out that material explanations for natural processes are much more satisfying than a bunch of outdated superstitious ideas and vague promises of life eternal. A formerly religious fan who wrote to me recently put it better than I ever could: I've always reb ...

Is this the best Christian Apologists can do?

It ain't easy being a Christian: sure, they might be the majority (for now), but every other day the faith is challenged by objective reality. While many Christians will scoff at the idea that their religion is in trouble, the truth is that countries like Canada, Sweden, and Australia are quickly shedding their religious coat in favor of a broader "spirituality" that doesn't have to deal with the many incon ...

Conservapedia thinks I’m a sinner

I'm truly honored today. Conservapedia, apparently aware that I was poking fun at their ridiculous "Question Evolution!" campaign, decided to inform me that my objection to their fantasy has something to do with the excessive amount of "sinning" going on at my house. I guess all of those orgies finally caught up with me, huh? To celebrate this momentous occasion, I'm going to go snort cocaine off a prostitu ...
