Rick Warren thinks atheists hate their dads

I've always found it amusing how religious folks try to peg atheists. Most of them think we don't believe in God simply because we were spurned in some way, and in our pettiness, we rejected God. I won't deny there are definitely more than a few atheists who essentially hold their views more out of spite than reason, but it's certainly not true for most of us. Pastor Rick Warren would disagree with me. He's ...

Grumpy old man claims global warming is a hoax

Here's an amusing / frustrating video of Weather Channel founder John Coleman trying his best to blast global warming. He's concerned about how 'upset' people are, as though being worried about the environment is slowly killing people's souls. He also believes things are just fine, and there is no need for concern. It seems his biggest proof is simply that the polar icecaps are not going to melt, despite cl ...

The inequities of the ‘War on Terror’

On December 14th, 1999, a man named Amhed Ressam was arrested crossing the Canadian-American border. Custom officials found explosives hidden in his spare tire, and more bomb making materials in his apartment in Montreal, Quebec. He was subsequently interrogated, and in return for a lighter sentence, Ressam would reveal the existence of a complex sleeper cell network to investigators, eventually leading to ...

One step forward, two steps back

A few weeks ago, I was contemplating whether or not I should continue trying to write my book on atheism. Part of my hesitation came from the fact there are already so many books on the subject, and everyone with a soapbox believes they have something to say on the issue. It can make a person's own opinion on the subject feel small and relatively unimportant. Still, events seem to conspire to force me into ...

Apologies to Neil deGrasse Tyson

Do you know what I hate? Catching myself talking smack just for the sake of hearing my own voice. When you're firing a ton of vitriolic guns, there can be a few casualties along the way; modesty and thoughtfulness come to mind. As you might imagine, I was less than pleased with myself when I read this snarky post I did back in 2012 concerning science's new Golden Boy, Neil deGrasse Tyson. I may have been a ...

Lawrence Krauss walks out of UCL debate over segregation of sexes

During a scheduled debate between Lawrence Krauss and Muslim apologist Hamza Andreas Tzortzis (he's the clown I spanked a few days ago over his supposed arguments for God), a fundamentalist group called the "Islamic Education and Research Academy" forced the students to segregate themselves according to their sex. A few students, who had decided not to observe this ridiculous custom, were being ejected for ...

How to annoy your coworkers, Jesus style

You know what I love? I love it when I'm at the office, and someone vaguely familiar with their religion decides that it's their duty to try and convert me to whatever bullshit they believe in at the time. Yes, there's nothing in this world I love more than watching these people squirm when you start asking them questions their priest never really prepared them for. What's the deal with Jesus and his intens ...

‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ should return…this time for religion

I've always found America's obsession with the military disturbing. First and foremost, it is heavily populated by the poorest, least educated members of society who often have little choice in joining if they hope to have an education, or even a future outside of Walmart. You always hear on TV how much respect they should be given, due to their sacrifice in 'protecting freedom'. In reality, the military is ...
