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. ...

Parent fail

So let me get this straight: you have your kids singing to "My Humps" to profess their faith? You do know what this song is about, right? Favorite line from their shitty song: "you don't need evolution, it's just not the solution". So true! I mean, when you're trying to save someone's life who has a life threatning infection, it's way better to pray to a dead Jewish guy for mercy. I don't even go to the hos ...

Bad Creationism debating tactics obliterated

Are you an idiot who wants desperately to continue to believe in a supernatural entity despite no evidence to do so? Are you intimidated by science, and how it conflicts with your supernatural understanding of the world? Are you concerned evolution makes your Cosmogony seem infantile and basic by comparison? Then head on over to Creationtips.com, where you can learn a whole slew of idiotic talking points, s ...

Illinois school board gets shitty candidates

Illinois's 95th District school board has just joined a distinguished group of ignoramuses who continue to undermine the educational futures of their progeny. The members of the board are all up for re-election, and all 4 candidates have said they support creationism being taught alongside evolution in science classrooms. One even claimed it was evolution, and not his stupid Judeo-Christian based belief, th ...

Westboro Church gets spanked by Anonymous

If the movie "Hackers" taught us anything, it's you don't want to mess with sexy, counterculture revolutionaries with something to prove. That's why the Westboro Baptist Church made a bit of a mistake when they sent an open letter to Anonymous telling them to "bring it" after it was rumored the group was planning on crashing their sites (which was apparently a play by the WBC to gain attention). Well, you p ...

My kind of petition

You have to love the French. I like the way they think. Apart from the bloody mess of their Revolution, and their tendency to allow horrible dictators a crack at running their country, every once in a while they do something remarkable (like inventing the metric system). Recently, a group of Atheists in France have created a petition to ensure that both Bibles and Korans have to be sold with a warning label ...

Another idiot claims atheism is a religion

Religious people are hilarious. How many times have we been accused of being "just another religion"? I imagine just stating this baseless canard must be a way for them to feel comforted by the idea that atheists base their beliefs on the same dogmatic mechanism they use. Unfortunately for them, it's ludicrously easy to demonstrate just how wrong this idea is. I fell upon an article this morning claiming th ...

Religion is for the simple

There's an article that appeared in the Guardian today entitled "Christianity: a faith for the simple", and while I agree with the premise of the article, I feel as though the author got everything precisely wrong on the subject. There was a recent study done in the US polling the religiosity of the country's scientists, which I'm unhappy to report is higher than in most other countries. Of course, the rela ...

Kim Campbell schools Jack Kingston

In Canadian circles, Kim Campbell is a bit of a joke; she was Prime Minister by default, and lasted all of 5 minutes in office. Like most politicians, however, her most interesting work has come afterwards. She was on Real Time with Bill Maher last night, and while she remained silent for the first few minutes, she woke up when Kingston started his ridiculous speech about the lack of good science when it ca ...
