If you’re at all enamored of stop motion photography, you really should watch this video. If not, you may carry on with your morning. Thank you for your attention. Your Thoughts? (via The Daily Dish)
A compendium of the classic, Troll 2, cheesy unintentional comedy does not come any cheesier than this.
A Christian friend recently told me we all have faith and that reason was my “god” in whom I had faith. Reason is not a “god” in whom one has faith. That’s just false. Reason is a set of cognitive processes that are potentially truth-conducive. That’s IT. We are all, as rational beings subject to its demands of logic, evidence, honesty, etc. That does not make it a “god” but the only authority in matters of truth we have. That’s not... Read more
Charles Bukowski, “The Genius Of The Crowd” there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average human being to supply any given army on any given day and the best at murder are those who preach against it and the best at hate are those who preach love and the best at war finally are those who preach peace those who preach god, need god those who preach peace do not have peace those who preach peace do not...

Hemant Mehtamakes the case that even more than strong debating points, atheists really need to draw people as “salt and light” if you will: Yes, there are arguments against any god’s existence and arguments against the truth of any religious text. We shouldn’t stop making them. But I don’t think these arguments, as logical as they are, appeal to the masses. What will convince more people to lose their faith?

I could seriously listen to Amy Millan sing just about anything, so I don’t know if her new cover of Death Cab For Cutie’s “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” which you can stream here is actually any good (Pitchfork hated it and I often trust Pitchfork’s judgment more than my own), but I enjoyed just hearing Amy… In case that song was indeed disappointing for the rest of you as Pitchfork predicted, here is an undeniably brilliant song...
