Girl buried alive in Turkey for talking to boys

Here's a scary thought: roughly half of all murders in Turkey are honor killings. That's roughly 200 cases of women being killed by family members for the "crime" of offending the family's honor. What does that entail, exactly? Well, take the story of Medine Memi, a teenage girl who was buried alive by her father and grandfather for having male friends. Media reports said the father had told relatives he wa ...

This is considered hate speech?

I think overly sensitive Christians need to re-examine their definition of hate speech. Political hopeful William J. Kelly is attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill, claiming a sign erected by the Freedom from Religion Foundation in the Illinois Capital Building is hate speech: At the time of the winter solstice, let reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There ...

Hot Atheist Chick on why evolution is true

Yes, I'm aware her YouTube name is actually ZOMGitsCriss, but that doesn't mean I have to like it (also, the intro song is actually a little bit terrible, but in a cute way). Here is her latest video explaining why evolution is true. She provides extensive examples of transitional fossils for doubters who apparently can't be bothered to do research themselves (presumably out of fear of being proved wrong). ...

More parents acting crazy; Virginia school bans Anne Frank’s Diary

It's now official; parents need to stay the fuck out of the educational system. How else are we supposed to react when one of these people gets the expanded version of Anne Frank's diary banned for containing a short passage making reference to the vagina? There are little folds of skin all over the place, you can hardly find it. The little hole underneath is so terribly small that I simply can't imagine ho ...

Dictionary banned in elementary school

Hey parents, may I ask you something? Do you ever fear that the degree to which you wish to protect your children from any kind of harm makes you absolutely batshit insane sometimes? The rest of us childless folks have to wonder what kind of effect having offspring has on your brain, because your behavior can often be described as utterly mental. Take this story involving parents banning the 6th edition of ...

Somali man stoned to death for adultry

I've written a few articles in the past about how fucked up Somalia is, including how Sharia Law is quickly becoming the order of the day. The latest disgusting act of cruelty was the recent stoning of Mohamed Abukar Ibrahim for the crime of adultery. He was buried up to his torso, and the local residents of Afgoye, a small village 20 miles from Mogadishu, were forced to watch as members of the radical grou ...

Uganda and “The Family” are fucked up

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy If you've never heard of the not-so-secret-anymore "Family", I might suggest you look them up before continuing to read this post. In a nutshell, these guys are a group of powerful and influential individuals who believe the true message of Christianity isn't about charity, forgiveness or any of the other typical conventions; they cov ...

Happy Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th, and considering the fact there are still lots of people out there who seem to think a number can be unlucky, I thought it would be fun to try and discover the story behind this superstition (you know, to seem all smart and shit). While there are lots of theories as to its origins, the truth is no one knows exactly why it persists. I suppose it may not even really matter; so long as ...

Terrible journalist blames Darwin for school shootings

How many killers have proudly flaunted the fact that their crimes were the result of their religious convictions? It's honestly too numerous to count, but every time such a tragedy occurs, you don't see anyone blaming Martin Luther, Joseph Smith, or other religious leaders. That doesn't stop some shitty writers, who have a clear interest in attacking evolution, from blaming everything they can on Charles Da ...

Drug Advisor tells the truth, gets fucking fired

If you've never seen the documentary, "Is Alcohol worse than ecstasy?", I urge you to see it. It'll make the sacking of Professor David Nutt, the UK's chief drug adviser all the more relevant. You see, Professor Nutt had the "audacity" to claim ecstasy and LSD were less dangerous than alcohol and tobacco. For real scientists, this revelation is nothing new. The drug policy of most countries aren't based on ...
