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 If you do, then odds are you're being ostracized by friends and family members who feel embarrassed by your outdated views.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. ...

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 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 ...
