“Is having no head the same as be bald?”

A particularly annoying nagnostic named George showed up to the comments a few days back. Some of us engaged him. Articulett of Debunking Christianity fame mopped the floor with him. It was funny, and it was over. Or not, it seems. Now, George has apparently worked out an ingenious way to still refer to atheism as a religion. Is having no head the same as be bald? Why don't you tell us, George? You be expert. The rest of George's comment was pretty funny in that smarmy yet … [Read more...]

T-shirt: god is not allowed in schools, can’t stop violence – FIXED

My wife saw the image on the left going around facebook. It had over 300,000 shares. Spread it / steal it / share it, whatever. What was preventing god from stopping the shooter before he entered the school? What prevented god from interfering with the shooter's acquisition of weapons and ammunition? Why didn't god stop the deadliest recorded school mass murder, even though god was 'allowed' in schools at the time? … [Read more...]

I’m being ‘infantile’ because ‘I want to murder christians’

James Delts read my blog post about a ridiculous person claiming that atheists were on the verge of publicly executing all the Christians in America. He weighed in with this blistering anecdote: what a shower of bigots you are. Some here have even demanded they that christians be murdered here, so thats it, its ok just to murder someone because they have different beliefs and disagree with abortion, so you can be entertained. How the hell can you call for people to be killed? I thought you … [Read more...]

Dubble standard: gay polical agenda

The Stars and Stripes posted a story about Brig. Gen. Tammy Smith, the first openly gay general officer in the US Military. Though she downplayed the 'first gay' angle, the importance was simply unavoidable. CNN picked up the story, and OutServe provided some great pictures from the ceremony. The article at S&S generated some heated comments. Most of them were spelled wrong, or were simply stupid. The military will be 90% gay, 10% closet straight I am glad my military career is … [Read more...]

New product for toddlers who are caught brown-handed (NSFL)

Potty training disasters are inevitable. A company called "Heaven's Lil Blessings Boutique" has developed a product promises to exacerbate the problem. If you like kids with shitty fingers, this is for you! "Great for little hands that can't quit figure out how to keep their hands clean / covered when wiping." I know it's bad form to nitpick grammar in casual internet posts, and this is a very small DIY business run entirely on facebook. This is the rare double-fail, so I couldn't resist … [Read more...]

Church sign fail “Jesus – making atheists backslide for 2000 years”

The word 'backslide' has a very specific meaning. It doesn't mean what they think it means. Click to embiggen: Wikipedia sums it up: This article is about the theological phenomenon. For the dance, see Moonwalk (dance). Backsliding is a term used within Christianity to describe a process by which an individual who has converted to Christianity reverts to pre-conversion habits and/or lapses or falls into sin, when a person turns from God to pursue their own desire. In other … [Read more...]

Pastor Bryan Griem belittles more US soldiers

A few days ago, Pastor Bryan Griem viciously belittled foxhole atheists in the Pasadena Sun newspaper. I encouraged readers to let him know how you feel. He didn't respond to my letter. But he did reply to at least one. Elizabeth wrote him a letter. You can read it in this comment. But I wanted to focus on this insane response, so I'm not re-posting it here. Pastor Bryan Griem's reply: Elizabeth, The thing you did not tell me in this negative letter to me is if your nephew believes in … [Read more...]
