Everybody Knows About the Limitless Wealth of the Catholic Church

Everybody is wrong. [Read more…]

Cosmos in the Lost on the “eclipse of science”…

during those terrible Middle Ages. It’s amazing how much intellect worshippers fail to *use* the object of their adoration when it comes to the regurgitation of memes that have been exploded countless times. The War of the Church against Science is, quite simply, a creation myth promulgated in order to shove the Catholic tradition out [Read More…]

Cosmos in the Lost offers Praise…

…for the Inquisition.  I always enjoy it when pseudoknowledge gets spanked. [Read more…]

Tom McDonald on Michael Crichton…

…on the Gell-Mann Effect puts me in mind of the fact that I independently noticed the same thing some years ago and wrote a piece on it: to wit, the weird fact that when the media writes about stuff in which he have some first-hand knowledge they are almost infallible wrong, yet when we turn [Read More…]

Atheist Stupid Pet Tricks

As night follows day, when you try to point out that, wrong as the burning of Giordano Bruno (or any other heretic) was, there is no Catholic “War on Science” and he was not a martyr in that fictional war, the atheist brigade shows up to change the subject and shout “O the humanity!  Medievals [Read More…]

Measles Outbreak Traced to MegaChurch Full of Vaccination Opponents

It’s stuff like this that drives me crazy when people with keyboards suddenly grant themselves MDs. The people in my comboxes instructing a reader who is a pedes doctor on how he doesn’t know what he’s talking about strike me in much the same way as the atheists who has Read a Thing or Two [Read More…]

Some of my readers are offended…

…about my crack concerning insta-Constitutional scholars.  Some are saying the law should be so simple that any honest citizen can comment on it with expertise.  Others accuse me of being an elitist for thinking that it’s, well, kind of ridiculous that everybody had a vast and settled take on the SCOTUS opinion within a few [Read More…]

It’s the Summer Solstice!

And because, as we are instructed each Christmas, Catholicism is nothing more or other than warmed-over paganism, that is why the summer solstice is one of the four holiest days on the Christian calendar when the Church celebrates… um… something. It’ll come to me. Well, anyway… you have to admit that Catholics do hold the [Read More…]

A Challenge to Protestant Readers

A meme that has popped up in recent years on Protestant sites is this “quote” attributed to St. Augustine: “The Church is a whore, but she’s my mother.” I’m sorry, but I call BS. I don’t believe, for one nanosecond, that Augustine ever said any such thing. I don’t believe he ever so much as [Read More…]
