PZ Myers spotted in Islamic Jihad videos

Don’t believe me? Look for yourself. Attentive Rock Beyond Belief readers noticed this early this morning. PZ spoke about 72 virgins in disturbing detail. Gross. But things are different now. Atheist PZ Myers is not creepy. He’s now a very prominent atheist blogger (you may have heard his name before.) Compare that first picture with recently [Read More...]

Never mind, that explains everything about the 72 virgins.

I had previously suggested that radicals that do Jihad would ‘run out of virgins’ in a matter of months. Here is one prominent orthodoxy: Orthodox Muslim theologians such as al-Ghazali (died 1111 CE) and al-Ash’ari (died 935 CE) have all discussed the sensual pleasures found in paradise, and they are graphically elaborated by Qur’anic commentator [Read More...]

Why 72 virgins is more like a punishment, not a reward.

Radicals have used this promise to brainwash young men. If you think this one through, it’s not that awesome of a deal. Let’s just say that the controversial 72 virgins reward wasn’t mistranslated, misinterpreted or otherwise misunderstood. Let’s also overlook the implications that a young woman’s virginity should simply be rewarded to others. What about females? [Read More...]

Parkour for Jesus

Parkour for Jesus? Unfortunately, this is a thing. About a year ago, my wife sent me a link to a craigslist ad for a guy who was starting a Parkour for Jesus group. Parkour, of course is the ‘sport’ of freestyle walking and running. I found the screen-capture of the long deleted personal ad, and [Read More...]

6 dead after church tells them to stop taking HIV medication

Reporters in the U.K. have uncovered a tragedy. Faith healers there have been telling their congregations that they can cure anything – including HIV. And people are dying. Six victims and counting. An undercover reporter went to one of the many UK churches that claim to be able to cure anything. The person hardly blinked, [Read More...]

Proof that babies are indeed atheists (short video)

Some would argue that all babies are atheists. Conversely, our 9 month old daughter has been speaking in tongues a lot. So we decided to just ask her how she feels about God: http://www.youtube.com/embed/MDX5_d7V5uU? Not surprisingly, her thoughts on religion mirror her parents’ views. Another question I get is: Are you raising your daughter to [Read More...]

Elevator music-gate

I haven’t written about the so-called elevator-gate situation, and probably never will. I feel that all the important things that could be said, have been said (in a sea of shit that probably shouldn’t have been said). I grew bored of the discussion early on – despite the fact that I’m a feminist and ‘picked [Read More...]

Attention internet atheists: be like the Lorax

This month, my blog has been the vehicle of successful crowd-sourced activism. Twice. Obviously, I know my place. I had a few eye-catching titles, some ‘right place right time’ information etc. The real champions are the anonymous masses at the news aggregating sites (reddit, stumbleupon) and other social networking sites (twitter, facebook). Take a bow, internet.
