Scientific evidence of a soul?

Somehow I happened across a Facebook post criticizing me and anyone who "follows" me, whatever that means. I couldn't comment on that thread, but it made some interesting claims that I think should be publicly addressed.The Question Evolution Project appears to be the same entity as the blog author, Piltdown Superman. So he is only citing himself. His website is a string of obvious falsehoods easily refuted, and his linked blog post opens with the following idiocy: "Although secularists … [Read more...]

How Various Studies Disprove Noah’s Flood

I'm having some fun with a new video series. I wish it wasn't necessary to do this series anymore, but in the last year with the opening of Ken Ham's Ark park and the appointment of a presidential cabinet made up entirely of science denialists means that yes, I still have to explain how we know that Noah's ark was only ever a goddamn fable and that grown-ups seriously should not still believe such nonsense in the age of information.So far this new video series looks like it will consists of … [Read more...]

Mythbusted?

This morning I got a call from self-professed Bible scholar pushing what he called a Mythbuster series: except that instead of busting the myth, he's promoting one he believes in. I know, that doesn't make any sense. I don't think he's paid any royalties on using the Mythbuster name either, but that's what he calls it.He said he had arguments that would render atheism without foundation, or some such claim as that. He wanted to have a video chat, and I thought would be fun. Sadly, it didn't … [Read more...]

I am Resigned to Run for State Senate

I just posted my first political advertisement. It was filmed by the New Covenant Group in their 7,000 square-foot TV studio in Pensacola Florida. They just sent their edit to me a couple days ago. Thank you for that, Dr Michael Jones.Even before posting this ad, I've found that I'm already attending multiple political meetings each week, and this is expected to accelerate considerably by Autumn. This is on top of everything else I'm still doing, which is quite a lot really. So in an effort … [Read more...]

855 FOR LIES

In my previous post, I trolled the toll-free number on a one of those gospel billboards purporting to be about "truth". You can listen to that call here. I spoke with an operator named Philip. I challenged him to point out even one thing in the Bible that he could show to be true and thus qualify as truth. The truth is what the facts are. A fact is a point of data that can be objectively verified, and a statement or claim doesn't constitute truth until we can show that it is true and concordant … [Read more...]

855 FOR “TRUTH”

I had a short speaking tour of Florida, giving a Darwin Day presentation in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Fort Myers, and we recorded three episodes of The Place while passing through Pensacola. So we took a road trip out of Texas, through Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Along the way, I kept seeing these billboards pleading with me to call and argue with them.The first call was amusing enough. I talked with Johnny about how Jesus was reportedly a 1st century faith-healer who believed … [Read more...]

Aron Ra State Senate Campaign Donations

I have a certified public accountant registered with the Texas Ethics Commission as my campaign treasurer. Together we opened a separate bank account specifically for my 2018 run for State Senate, District 2, and I have a website linking to a PayPal account where I can finally begin accepting campaign donations. I hate that it takes money to run an election in this country, and it is absurd how much money is required. At a recent meeting of the local Democratic party, I was told that a State … [Read more...]

Politically opinionated

I don't like to share my political opinions because so many of them require explanation and some also require a prior understanding. Those with neither think I don't have either. It also requires a willingness to understand, which a lot of my critics simply do not have. Sadly too many people, both on the left and on the right are only interested in tearing into each other over any perceived difference they can demonize. That's how the country became so divided, and we're going to have to find a … [Read more...]

Just give him a chance…

My last blog post irritated some right-wingers. It seems that if I don’t want to ruin everything for everyone, then I’m an extreme leftist. So if I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone, then how much more extreme left is that?"Give Trump a chance", they say.Give him a chance to set everyone's rights back a few decades and make the destruction of the environment come decades faster?Give him a chance to lie to the public and reprimand his own staff if they're honest on social media? O … [Read more...]

And so it begins.

Donald Trump enters his new office with the lowest initial approval rating of any president in living memory. Yet despite these already impressive figures, I predict that his numbers will actually go even further down—before it's all over. That, I think, is an appropriate way to end that sentence. Trump promises—albeit unwittingly—to undermine the Constitution and the environment, the economy, and anything else he can bring to ruin. That's why he wants to eliminate the Environmental Protection Ag … [Read more...]
