Open letter to Oprah

If you don't watch her show or buy her stupid magazine, you might not be aware of the reigning endorsement Oprah is currently giving to her friend, Jenny McCarthy. Jenny used to be hot shit, but then she got preggers and disappeared from the limelight, only to emerge as one of the main anti-vaccination spokespeople. You may recall there are still some unfortunate people who think there is a connection betwe ...

Another blow for Mormons

One of the crappy things about being a fairly recent religion is without the benefit of long stretches of time, the claims made in your religious tomes can usually be tested. Take for instance the Book of Mormon and its claim Native Americans are descendants of Lehi, a prophet who immigrated from Jerusalem to the Americas. Despite the fact there is no archeological evidence to support this claim, many Mormo ...

Stop indoctrinating kids

Here is a great article on the Independent asking the British government to stop forcing kids to engage in prayer. Since I'm not from the UK, the fact this is mandatory is new to me. I suppose it makes sense; there was a time not so long ago where the majority of Britain was pretty religious. That time has now passed, however, and it's time for a change: I can understand why the unelected, faltering religio ...

Church tried to lure kids into creepy van for baptisms

It used to be you only needed to warn your kids not to trust strangers trying to lure them into their vehicles for fear they might be kidnapped. Now parents in Colorado Springs have to worry about the Cornerstone Baptist Church luring their kids inside their creepy vans in order to baptize them. That's what nearly happened to a 7th grader at Russell Middle School. Administrators immediately sent a warning o ...

The unintended hilarity of creationists

Don't you just love the Internet? Everyone on this planet has an opinion, and we have access to billions of different ones in all different languages. The Internet is just like real life; it's filled with plenty of crap, a plethora of porn, and it's also populated by some truly wacky and unintentionally hilarious people. Take for example this website called ScienceagainstEvolution.org. The site looks like G ...

Archbishop tells people “Don’t turn to God for help”

I understand the reasoning behind the Archbishop of Canterbury warning that humans are the ones who need to clean up the environment. It's logical, and I certainly won't argue with the logic. What I will argue with, however, is that Christians fundamentally believe the world going to shit is actually a good thing, since it means their Lord will come back, send all the good people to heaven, and fix everythi ...

Nightline to debate the existence of Satan

It's funny how little TV time atheists actually get. You would think we made bad guests or something. Nightline is having a debate on the existence of Satan, and the only people engaged in this discussion are ones who have no real understanding of the natural world. The 'No' side has Deepak Chopra, the New Age moron who thinks nature had to be intelligently designed because of its complexity. Also on the No ...

College hippie shot in ‘drug raid’

Ryan and I sometimes joke around that as attitudes about drug prohibitionism soften, others harden in a predictable, reactionary way. What isn't funny is when it turns into an overzealous cop who guns down a college kid during a bullshit 'drug bust'. Derek Copp (kind of an ironic name) is usually described by friends as an easy going 'hippie' who is friendly, nonchalant, and most obviously likes to smoke po ...

Won’t someone think of the children?!

It doesn't surprise me that Latter Day Saints are always trying to destroy any bill that would allow gays to have equal rights. Here's an exerpt from one of their recent emails concerning a bill which would allow homosexuals to have recognized civil unions: The Civil Union Bill (HB 2234) has been scheduled for a hearing in the Youth and Family Committee this week on Thursday, March 5, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. in S ...
