Evolution is a lie because dogs have never been on the moon.

Truly there is no greater comedic bastion than Facebook. It's the only place you can find such a high concentration of crazy outside of the Phelps compound. The combination of free expression and ignorance is a constant reminder that as a species, we still have a long way to go. Every once in a while, someone crafts an argument so brilliant, you just have to stand back in awe at the inspired mind that came ...

Creationist files lawsuit after being laid off from NASA

For those of us not blinded by faith, Intelligent Design is nothing more that the "intellectual" leftovers of creationism. While its proponents will argue that there is no specific mention of God, once you read ID literature and listen to its defenders, a clear pattern emerges: ID is simply creationism that's been dressed up for the prom. Part of the reason ID'ers fight so hard against this creationist labe ...

Is this the best Christian Apologists can do?

It ain't easy being a Christian: sure, they might be the majority (for now), but every other day the faith is challenged by objective reality. While many Christians will scoff at the idea that their religion is in trouble, the truth is that countries like Canada, Sweden, and Australia are quickly shedding their religious coat in favor of a broader "spirituality" that doesn't have to deal with the many incon ...

Love wins, Christianity loses

The Evangelical world may not be as coherent and homogeneous as some would lead you to believe. For one thing, they can't seem to properly contain the apostasy of Pastor Robert Bell, who has been preaching from Mars Hill a theology that takes special efforts to exclude Hell. Bell credits a conversation he had about Ghandi. When a parishoner kindly reminded him he was slowly roasting in the fires of Hell, so ...

Heaven is totally real, ok?

Yes, it truly is an amazing story: 4 year old boy, doped up during surgery, has a series of hallucinations that reflect his Christian upbringing. Annoyingly, no one seems to give a shit that it's medical science that saved this kids life. Instead, everyone is focused on the vivid dreams of a 4 year old boy, who claims God is so gigantic, he can fit the Earth into his hands. Wow, an all-powerful deity that h ...

Genesis is not scientifically accurate

There's been a little debate that's been raging in one of the posts I put up a few days ago, and while I have no forum (yet), I thought necessary to respond to this comment made by our resident Christian, Brandon. Michelle, Those “myths” in Genesis match the order in which scientists tell us the earth, the moon and everything on the earth were formed. Please give me evidence to prove otherwise. I'll proceed ...

Stephen Baldwin is the new Job

If you recall the story of Job in the Bible, the Devil wagers that the wealthiest and most pious of God's servants, Job, is only loyal because of all the material comfort and success he's enjoyed. To prove the Devil wrong, God allows the Prince of Darkness to kill his entire family, destroy his livestock, burn down his house, and finally give him a bunch of disgusting boils all over his body. Job stays loya ...

Stephen Baldwin continues to entertain

I'll give him this: Stephen is willing to stand up for his belief in God, even if the life of his child were at risk. His presence on Big Brother is a goldmine of insanity so far, and it's only getting better. He recently told one of his roommates that if a gun wielding maniac threatened to kill his daughter with a machine gun, he would force her to not renounce Jesus even if it meant saving her life. I can ...

Can belief in God be a good thing?

I received this email from long time fan of the site James, who recently had an experience with his mother he thought was worth sharing. I've received this kind of question pretty often, and I thought it might be good bring it up again to clarify my position. Here is James' letter: I really liked yesterday’s TGA bonus episode. Couldn’t agree more that End of Faith is my favourite of the books you mentioned. ...

How big is heaven anyway?

There are some people who behave in such a strange manner, and believe in such terrifyingly silly things, that you have to take a moment in your day to see for yourself the depth of man's delusions. This week, an interesting video was presented to me, where a supposed expert makes his predictions as to the relative size of heaven. His conclusion: heaven is about 7,000,000 times bigger than New York. At firs ...
