Irish PM doesn’t want to feel rushed into changing abortion law

Since I first blogged about this a few days ago, the death of Savita Halappanavar has caused a lot of understandable outrage in Ireland. It seems her highly avoidable passing has rudely awakened a generation of young people who are shocked their own health could be threatened due to the persistence of religious dogma. Even more shocking, they're about to realize change is impossibly slow, given the ones hol ...

Cindy Jacobs thinks wishful thinking stops terrorists

Thank the dead Palestinian Jew who probably never even existed that Cindy Jacobs and her group of whackjobs were around in 2011 to protect us with her 'prayer cover' that's been actively thwarting terrorist's attempts. Also in more personal news, I have a rock that can protect you from being mauled by a tiger. I'm currently selling it for the low-low price of $999.99, so you better move if you want my usele ...

The Catholic church really is full of pedophiles.

It's difficult to actually assess just how corrupt the Catholic Church is, but judging by the testimony of Father Kevin Lee, the accusation often lobbied at the church - mainly that it provides an attractive employment opportunity for sexual abusers - seems legitimate. Lee, who was fired for marrying a woman (the nerve!), had been documenting allegations of abuse for years, and found himself frustrated by t ...

Contraception is a gateway drug to abortion!

Catholics are hilarious. It's been 60 years since the invention of the pill, and these dinosaurs are still trying to argue that it's the most evil invention since the guillotine. Abortion and birth control are two sides of the same coin. The currency of which is the prevention and/or the destruction of nascent human life. While some forms of contraception, such as the condom or the diaphragm, are not themse ...

Get ready for some free energy!

When I was a teen, I bought into the bullshit that is Qi (sometimes spelled 'chi'). I couldn't help it: if you've ever watched the Shaolin Monks do their thing, you might understand why I thought their impressive physical feats were only made possible because of some superhuman element. Fueled by the mythology of comic book heroes, I desperately wanted it to be true (which I was to later learn is the first ...

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 ...
