Detroit Imam shot and killed during FBI raid

Here's the deal; if you want to start your own little mosque and preach for the government to be replaced by a caliphate run by a man in prison for life, it's generally a good idea not to draw attention to yourself by buying and selling stolen weapons, and it's definitely a bad idea to go around telling people to help overthrow the government. Luqman Ameen Abdullah converted to Islam and began preaching ant ...

France gives Scientology the finger

It's a good day, people. This morning I was flooded with emails and links concerning a French court that found 6 members of the Church of Scientology guilt of fraud. Each member on trial was fined 400,000 euros and  sentenced to no less than two years in prison. I'm actually pretty surprised they're sending these guys to jail while still allowing the Church to continue its operation in the country with impu ...

Is being Jewish about “race” or religion?

I was reading an old article on BBCnews about a Jewish school that was refusing admission to students who had no blood relation to Judaism. The school was trying to defend their stance, arguing that this was a matter of religion, not race. I don't buy that bullshit for one second. Consider this: a few months ago, the Israeli government created a series of ads warning Jews not to marry non-Jews after a study ...

Man convicted in botched home circumcision of infant son.

There is still a frighteningly large segment of the population that believes the Bible is a useful guide for every day living. Luckily, most of these misguided fools have never actually read the fucking Bible, so for the most part, we're spared from the ill fate of anyone trying to live by the "Good Book". Once in a while, though, you run across a human being who hasn't quite understood the concept of moder ...

Pakistan is still messed up

I got some good news and some bad news. I'll give you the good news first; according to the latest Pew Poll, Pakistani support of the Taliban and al Qaeda has been declining over the past few years, and more and more people are concerned over extremism in the country. They also are beginning to see that educating women is important. All of this sounds pretty encouraging, right? Ok, now that we've covered th ...

Movie about Darwin doesn’t have U.S. distributor

One of the crown jewels at the Toronto Film Festival this year was Creation, a movie depicting the life and struggles of Charles Darwin. The film focuses specifically on his family life, and the destruction of his faith with the death of his beloved daughter Annie. The film stars Paul Bettany (you might remember him as the albino monk in The DaVinci Code) and his real life smoking hot wife, Jennifer Connely ...

Kentucky gets a little wiser

After the attacks of 9/11, the US Department of Homeland Security was created to supposedly defend America from terrorist attacks. This very broad mandate has created one of the largest departments in the US government, and considering the frequency of terrorism attacks, I would argue that with an annual budget of roughly 52 billion dollars, they are an utterly useless and pointless organization. Of course, ...

Dawkins interviews Nick Cowan

One of the things I tend to look at, especially during interviews, is body language, with particular emphasis on eye movement. I've learned over the years it can be useful to look in someone's eyes when they speak to know how they really feel about what they are saying. People can believe in things they know secretly to be wrong, even though they might think it's a necessary thing to believe in. Nick seems ...

Hitchens laments the appeasement of fundamentalists

Here's an article from Christopher Hitchens on Yale University Press and their decision to censor their own book out of fear of Islamic violence. Yale University Press announced last week that it would go ahead with the publication of the book, but it would remove from it the 12 caricatures that originated the controversy. Not content with this, it is also removing other historic illustrations of the likene ...
