IHOP calls Oprah Winfrey the Anti-Christ

Here's what's fucking scary about believers: some of them take it so seriously that concerns over their own well-being is secondary. For true believers, a tiny bunk-bed, barely enough food to subsist, and countless hours spent trying to recruit new zombies isn't a chore; it's a calling, baby! It is how a pathetically small church, with the hilarious acronym of IHOP (International House of Prayer, not Pancak ...

Cult leader shoots 4 year old because he “might be gay”

What do you get when you take a violent, homophobic young man and combine it with the power of religion? You get two deaths, a slam dunk for the prosecution, and the feeling that all of this could have been prevented if people stopped being such gigantic suckers. The murderer in question, Peter Lucas Moses, had his followers call him Lord, and used fear and isolation to control them. Prosecutors said the ca ...

Some people take that Religion shit pretty seriously…

You never know how some religious nutjobs are going to react. That's a life lesson Jerry Andrews is still pondering about, having recently been shot by his co-worker Dale O'Callaghan. Seems as though Dale may not have had much of a sense of humor about his faith. His sore spot happened to be a certain Harold Camping failed Rapture prediction that was greatly anticipated (and like with most believers, probab ...

Beat your demons away

In the slums of Khanewal, Pakistan, the poor and indigent who suffer from treatable illnesses are sent, often by physicians wishing to unload their patients, to the Islamic equivalent of exorcists. They are called Pirs (or Peers), meaning "old man", and these "saints" often perform barbaric torture rituals they believe can clean people of djinns, or demons. One victim of their archaic stupidity was a woman ...

This mail is for Everyone

This one is addressed to everyone on the site, so you know what to do, people! My name is Brittany. I am 17 years old, and an atheist living in Pensacola, Florida. Something happened just recently in my family that I really want to share with you as well as other atheist communities. I could really use some advice- this problem has been present for as long as I've come out as an atheist and seems to be dete ...

In the end, aren’t we all human?

I will not deny the fact the letter had my eyes shed a few hard fought tears. Despite the fact that both he and I have different world views (the supposed godhood of a 2000 year old Jew), we both agree that speaking up when others don't is the right thing to do. The act is so moving because as beautiful as his words were, he is one of us; the ordinary folks, just sitting at a deli having breakfast. I also t ...

Harold Camping still in shock over dumb prediction

Well, for the cynics out there that thought Harold was just trying to bilk people out of their money, I think you can see from his expression that he really did believe in his own nonsense. That's what makes people like Harold so dangerous! The best way to lie to others is to first lie to yourself! If Harold really wants to understand what's going on, he'll need to understand the Bible is just fairy tale bu ...

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 ...

Catholic Church fights against statute of limitation for sex abuse

Is anyone really surprised by this headline? Considering the fact that the Catholic Church has always exploited the fact there exists a statute of limitation for child rape, it's really no surprise they are fighting a number of bills that would eliminate this convenient legal loophole. What worried them the most is the fact that victims could now sue offending priests retroactively, and this has the Church ...

This guy makes my head hurt

Let me get this straight: this guy thinks scientists who spend their entire lives seriously studying fossil records would just lie without fear their entire careers would be obliterated by other serious scientists who scrutinize every little bit of research in a process we call "peer review"? Is it more likely perhaps an uneducated moron like himself is the one who's actually lying about the facts? I know i ...
