Via Dread Tomato Addiction comes this brilliant looking follow up to Ben Stein’s Expelled. RichardDawkins.net explains more about the controversy.  A taste: the team has moved on to promoting other theories that they feel are being suppressed by the scientific community. Sexpelled: No Intercourse Allowed tells of how Sex Theory has thrived unchallenged in the ivory towers of academia, as the explanation for how new babies are created. Proponents of Stork Theory claim that “Big Sex” has been suppressing their… Read more

Earlier today I liveblogged the highlights of the first 5 hours of Creation Museum discussion from the official twitter feed of PZ Myers and the Secular Student Alliance Trip (#Creozerg). Click here for those highlights. Now this thread features the rest of the major tweeting from the afternoon, picking up where I left off with tweets in descending order from oldest to newest (with a few moved for continuity). And please when you’re done, stick around and check out my regular… Read more

In response to a long running urban legend/chain intellectually insulting e-mail (which Snopes has a really good write up of here) comes this terrific comic stripization: (UPDATE, MARCH 19, 2014: The chain e-mail satirized above has now inspired a feature film that is due in theaters this weekend. I have written a review of the trailer called “The Atheist Philosophy Professor Strikes Back”.) The version of this story that deserves a separate cartoon of its own is a really disgusting… Read more

Alright, with all this celebration of religulous fundamentalist Evangelical thinking today (with PZ Myers and the Secular Student Alliance visiting Ken Ham’s Creation “Museum”) I am in the mood for dredging the lake of my teenage years for all the most hilarious brainwashing devices they got me to love back then. And this one ranks right up there near the top of the greatest hits list.  The ultimate cheesy theocratic propaganda for teens! Your Thoughts? Read more

In honor of PZ Myers and the Secular Students Alliance’s historic trip to the Creation “Museum,” I ashamedly bring you this ridiculous song I loved back in my Evangelical days… Read more

From MedicalNewsToday: Principal investigator Edward K. Vogel, a UO professor of psychology, compares working memory to a computer’s random-access memory (RAM) rather than the hard drive’s size — the higher the RAM, the better processing abilities. With more RAM, he said, students were better able to ignore distractions people who hold their focus more intensely tend to have higher fluid intelligence; they score higher on achievement tests, do better in math and learn second languages easier than peers who are… Read more
