Kirk Cameron thinks Stephen Hawking has “absurd Ideas”

Guess who managed to weasel his way into the news? It's everyone's favorite "ex-atheist", Kirk Cameron, criticizing Hawking for declaring that Heaven is a fairy-tale. He posted this on his Facebook page: to say anything negative about Stephen Hawking is like bullying a blind man. He has an unfair disadvantage, and that gives him a free pass on some of his absurd ideas. That's not passive aggressive in the s ...

Creationist Pimp Harun Yahya is back

Remember Harun Yahya? He's the Turkish creationist that published a book called "The Atlas of Creation", his attempt to "prove" that animals were created spontaneously by his personal God. Most of the pictures in this massive 768 page monstrosity are ripped right off the Internet. One picture of a fly is in fact a metal lure. Yes, he's that fucking incompetent. Harun Yahya is the pseudonym of Adnan Oktar, 5 ...

Buddhists are confused about everything

A fan of the site sent me this Buddhist exchange that I had to say something about: Curious Buddhist: I have an odd question which was raised by a friend, who was asking me questions about Buddhism. They wanted to know how Buddhism deals with the concept of evolution? Are Buddhists creationists? Our teachings don't seem to deal with such matters and I was rather at a loss as to how to answer them. Lama Shen ...

Muslim actress threatened over Playboy pictures

When I think of someone famous taking off their clothing for money and more attention, it's rare that I compare their actions to those of great revolutionaries. Of course, that's probably because I live in a society that values freedom of expression, and where the female form isn't something we like covered up (which is why winter sucks so hard). That's why I had to take a few moments to appreciate the fact ...

Pope continues to deny reality

I know, it's not much of a headline. I mean, how surprising is it when a supposedly infallible guy in the ceremonial dress claims that his magical sky-man created humans, rather than our existence being the product of natural forces: Benedict emphasized the Biblical account of creation in his Easter Vigil homily Saturday, saying it was wrong to think at some point "in some tiny corner of the cosmos there ev ...

Accommodation or confrontation?

Since arriving in Calgary, I made a simple promise to myself I would further my involvement in the local atheist community. It was therefore fortuitous that after only of few days of adjusting to my new surroundings, an opportunity to meet up with other atheists presented itself in the form of a lecture. Held at the University of Calgary last night, it was entitled "The Evolution-Creation Controversy". Dr. ...

So much stupid, so little time…

Today's creationist idiot is different from his forebears. For starters, he is far more cognizant of science, and often appropriates very select information that confirms his crackpot theories. He desperately wants the legitimacy of science without actually having to do any. The latest loon is the author of a "book" entitled "The Evolution Handbook",written by a young-earth creationist by the name of Vance ...

Vatican upset over being called out on their shit

When you hear the words "disturbing trend", do you think of society's growing acceptance of same sex unions? If you do, then odds are you're being ostracized by friends and family members who feel embarrassed by your outdated views. A number of us have moved beyond the Bronze Age and recognize homosexuality as a development of evolution, the same way your eyeballs and fingernails are. A gay person can no mo ...

Jonathan Haidt on the “Moral Matrix”

Makes you think, doesn't it? I think one of the advantages of atheism is we share so many different values. There really is a huge diversity of political beliefs, and it's my hope we can continue to maintain an open mind. Of course, I disagree with him strongly on the Dalai Lama's moral humility, but that's a discussion for another time. ...
