Sam Harris and Dave Rubin: The Fabrications and Distortions Continue

Click To Enlarge

Last week I wrote a piece declaring that Sam Harris’s detractors could no longer justify misrepresenting his views. I believed that Dave Rubin’s interview provided all the information needed to explain Harris controversial positions. I also acknowledged that I disagreed with Harris on a few issues, and that I fully understood that many others would as well. Nonetheless, my plea [Read More...]

Rumors of Christopher Hitchens’ Deathbed Conversion


Knowing he was facing death, it seemed Christopher Hitchens scheduled more speaking engagements than he did while healthy. During these talks, Hitch would prognosticate that there would be rumors of his “deathbed conversion.” Those who were with Hitchens when he died, made it clear that there was no such last minute salvation plea.

Sam Harris and Dave Rubin: No More Excuses For Misrepresentation

Despite its many triumphs this little movement, that has been labeled “new atheism,” has had some major setbacks the past couple years.

The day before the event, Richard Dawkins interviewed Hitchens for the New Statesman. It also ended up being Hitchens’ last interview. Now, for the first time, [Read More...]

Donald Trump’s Church Says He “Is Not An Active Member.”


I must admit that I have enjoyed the popcorn munching show that is Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. In particular, I continue to marvel at his rise in popularity among the religious right. Here at Patheos, I wrote about Trump being, “The Self-Proclaimed New Savior of Christianity.” I relished his statement that he would be “the [Read More...]

Video Reveals The Antichrist Hovering Above Los Angeles


When I was a kid, two of my favorite movie’s were E.T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. My favorite television shows were Nimoy’s In Search Of, and Project Blue Book. Do you see a theme? Because of all of this, every light in the sky was an alien spacecraft. I was evidence that [Read More...]
