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 ...

Fundie Mormons use water torture on babies

I've said many times I think the word "fundamentalist" is misplaced; not because it's inaccurate, but because it misses the point when talking about adherents. The word "originalist" seems more apt, since the people who qualify as fundamentalists are merely those who have taken the old school approach to their religion. The rest of the world behaves in a sane matter because they have ignored passages of the ...

Being Arrogant doesn’t mean you’re wrong

I've recently been enjoying Greta Christina's rather elaborate and lengthy blog posts over at Alternet.org, and I've been REALLY enjoying the debate her articles seem to generate in the comment section. Unlike our safe atheist-only environment we're accustomed to, Alternet seems to be populated by an eclectic mix of believers, atheists and agnostics. I was particularly fascinated with some of the comments g ...

Apparently, we don’t understand faith

Oh wounded Christians, when will you stop your belly-aching and stop acting like you are the victims of atheist aggression? It seems like every other day I have to read some theist's article about how atheists are either 1) way too mean, 2) clueless about religion, and 3) completely dogmatic about their non-belief. While I could accept the first (in my case, although I'm one of the few very vitriolic ones), ...

Military Chaplains worry about inability to discriminate

Evangelical chaplains in the military are suffering! They're worried the eventual repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" will jeopardize their ability to openly discriminate against gays and lesbians who might come to them seeking spiritual help. Now while I generally feel homosexuality and religion mix about as well as oil and water, you can't deny the fact statistically, gays are actually more religious than t ...

About Us

I stand by all the misstatements that I've made. - Dan Quayle Born and raised in the myserious country of Canada, I developed from an early age the ability to talk my way through anything. While this artful skill might otherwise have gone to waste in academia, I chose instead to pursue a career writing and speaking my mind about an issue I felt was important: atheism. After the release of Sam Harris’ book,  ...

Global Warming denier claims God will protect us

With the GOP back in power in the House, religious fundies are free to get appointed to important committees they are completely unqualified to run. Here we see Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) as he argues in 2009 humans have nothing to fear from climate change, as God has promised in the Bible not to destroy mankind again (except of course when he comes back down to earth to kill most of us). So what job does t ...

Bigoted Cardinal accuses gays of discrimination

You have to love Catholics: the more they are exposed as the homophobic, sexual predator harboring bigots they are, the more they go on the offensive, accusing everyone in sight of "discriminating" against them. The Vatican knows a good offense is the best defence (blood libel and the Crusades comes to mind here), and this is just them playing the old "blame game". It doesn't matter that the only ones actua ...
