Why I Am Proud to Be an American During Trump’s Inauguration

Why I Am Proud to Be an American During Trump’s Inauguration Today, I am very proud of my country. Here me out. No one was more anti-Trump than me during the election season. Yet, as I sit and watch the inauguration, I am in awe of our tradition of a smooth transition of power. Our Presidents are not our kings (or future queens), and they are only the Commander-in-Chief of the military. To the rest of us, they are our... Read more

Is There Religious Freedom in Atheist China?

Students of history know that Mao Zedong declared religion was one of the “Four Olds” and akin to Nazism. Therefore, it had to be eradicated, and his Communist regime demolished churches and jailed clergy. Moreover, if you went to church in the 60s and 70s, you heard stories of brave missionaries smuggling Bibles into China. However, six years after Mao’s death (1976), the Chinese constitution was amended to “protect” religious belief. However, what exactly does this mean? Is there religious... Read more

For the First Time, a Peer-Reviewed Survey Debunks the Chemtrail Conspiracy Theory

One of the favorite conspiracy theories of wackos like Alex Jones and Dick Gregory is the claim that contrails (condensation trails) are actually chemtrails (chemical trails) released by those in power for nefarious purposes. Here’s a video of Prince spewing this nonsense: [youtube]https://youtu.be/w9Ri3Z8lQm4[/youtube] Well now, for the first time, a peer-reviewed study has been published that debunks this ridiculous claim. Last week’s week’s edition of Environmental Research Letters published a survey conducted by the University of California at Irvine (UCI),... Read more

Vice Photos from the Opening Ken Ham’s Creationist Ark Encounter

VICE is one my favorite news site. They hold no punches, and if you watch their HBO series, you know their reporters take some crazy risks to report their stories. As I was looking through the photos taken by Samantha Friend at the opening of Ark Encounter, a few interesting things stood out to me. Yeah, we all know that modern technologies like cranes and concrete nullified the creationist’s claim that the Ark was authentic. And if you haven’t seen it, here’s the video... Read more

Woman Claims She Was Raped by a Pokemon Monster

FYI: This is not the actual woman. I don’t know why, but I am fascinated with the crazies and their Pokémon adventures. This is why I wrote about Satan training at the Westboro Baptist Church, Ken Ham claiming Pokémon were evidence for creationism, and the radio preacher saying the Devil uses Pokémon to target church leaders. Hell, I even got a little more somber when I accused a pastor of child abuse for casting Pokémon demons... Read more

What does the Bible and Nostradamus say about Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Vladimir Putin?

Ah, there’s that smell in the air. It must be the election season. Researchers are hard at work looking for evidence that our hopeful leaders are the Anti-Christ. Good news though, President Obama still tops the list. Jennifer LeClaire, the senior editor of Charisma, points out: If you type in ‘is Hillary Clinton the Antichrist’ into Google, you’ll get about 374,000 results in .82 seconds. President Obama beats her out at 822,000 results in .34 seconds. By way of comparison,... Read more

Democrat Scott Harbach Says His Party Has Become the Atheist Party

Today, fellow Democrats Russ Feingold and Scott Harbach are facing off for their party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate. The odd thing about Harbach is that he does not believe in the separation of church and state. At least that is what he implied in this radio interview yesterday. Wow. There is so much wrong with Harbach’s statements. First, he calls himself a “missionary” and claims that “across the pond,” people churches are being burnt to the ground. Then he... Read more

Enjoy – The Glories of Satanic Music

After sharing the good news today about Seattle banning conversion therapy, I feel all dirty inside. I so enjoy pointing out the wackos. So to redeem myself, let me end the day with three things that will be hard to get out of your mind. All of which come from Christian Nightmares. First, here’s a picture of Charlie Brown’s Linus listening to Stairway to Heaven backwards. Isn’t he cute? Remember kids; it might be difficult to do with MP3s, but Paul... Read more

Seattle Bans Conversion Therapy for LGBTQ Youth

How about some good news? California, Illinois, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, and the District of Columbia have all banned the use of conversion therapy on LGBTQ minors. The cities of Cincinnati and Miami have also banned it independently, and now The Stranger is reporting that Seattle has become the third city to do so. According to the article: If mental health providers practice conversion therapy on anyone under 18 years old in Seattle, they’ll now be fined $500 for the... Read more

Checkmate Scientists – Is It All a Hoax?

I was pursuing the Atheist Nexus Facebook group this morning and came across this old video: I’ve seen this in the past, but it just reminded me that things are getting worse. I swear I can’t decide what is real and what is Poe anymore. Immediately, the crazy Christian radio host who said Satan is targeting churches with Pokemon Go comes to mind. And then there is the preacher who cast demons out of children for playing the game (I’m happy to report that he removed... Read more
