Belief in Gods Played a Vital Role in the Cultural Evolution of Humans

I believe this is 100% true. Scientists have known for some time that the development of agriculture led to the specialization of work and that this specialization equipped early humans with the ability to forge things necessary for city development. However, according to two new studies, belief in omniscient and punishing deities, contributed a lot to it as [Read More…]

James Dobson Doubles Down on Claim That Donald Trump May Be Born Again

Last week I told you that Focus on the Family’s, James Dobson endorsed Trump for the Presidency. Now, with the disclaimer, “Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart,” Dobson has doubled down on his claim that Trump has been born again.  He says that he doesn’t know the details, but he heard that televangelist, [Read More…]

Bill Nye Answers: ‘Can We Bridge the Gap Between Science and Religion?’

I must seem like a walking dichotomy. I have railed against the Discovery Institute for stating that National Geographic “provides a pulpit for atheism.” I have condemned anti-vaxxers for the measles outbreak.

According to Time Dobson said: I have decided to endorse Donald J. Trump for President of the United [Read More…]

More of Christian Radio Host Explaining How Satan Is Using Pokemon Go to Target Churches

In my article, Pokemon GO – Satan Trains at The Westboro Baptist Church, I joked that the best thing about living in the South is since we have a church on each corner, we have Pokestops everywhere. Also, in that post, I made fun of Christian radio host, Rick Wiles for saying that Satan was using [Read More…]

Ted Cruz Refuses but Ralph Reed Supports Trump

Although many Republicans are calling him a traitor, I respect Ted Cruz for refusing to endorse Donald Trump. I believe his actual mistake was pledging to do so in the first place. As much as I disagree with Cruz, and I do a lot, at least he is sticking to his principles. Still, I remain [Read More…]
