Creationist Mother “Debunks” Evolution Exhibit at Chicago’s Field Museum; Here’s How You Should Respond
Earlier this month, self-described “homeschooling, Tea Partying, conservative mother” Megan Fox (not that one) visited Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History. Then, with her video camera on, she “audited” the “Evolving Planet” exhibit which documents “4 billion years of life on Earth.”
Her 30-minute video hilariously displays her scientific ignorance. The worst part is that she’s so damn confident she’s right. (Did I mention she home-schools her children?)
As an atheist, I have always loved Thanksgiving. It’s the perfect holiday: national but not nationalistic, it celebrates consumption but not consumerism (and it seems people want to keep it that way). And it provides all the benefits of a religious holiday (food! family! fellowship!) without reference to a Supreme Being.
Or so I thought.
Todd Starnes Claims a Library Banned His Book, Completely Ignoring All Their Other Books Written by Conservatives
Todd Starnes is furious that a small library in Alaska won’t accept a donation of his book. Shelf space is limited so they have to be selective and Starnes’ book didn’t receive many professional reviews (the usual bar for a book’s inclusion in many libraries).
Also, you know, no one wants to read Todd Starnes’ book.
Texas Pastor Allegedly Refuses to Bury Church Member of 50 Years — Because She Hadn’t Tithed in a Decade
What would Jesus do? Probably not this:
The daughter of 93-year-old Olivia Blair couldn’t believe it when Fourth Missionary Baptist Church pastor Walter Houston refused to bury her mother. “It was like the last insult in the world,” Barbara Day told KRIV in Houston. Day said her only wish was for her mother to be buried “in the church that she loved and worshiped all of her life, even as a little girl.” Day explained her mother was a church member for 50 years but had been sick for nearly a decade, and in a coma for the last 24 months.
