Zombie Attack Prevention Tips

Steven here… Ok, so I’m kind of stealing the zombie-theme from JT for a minute here, but I had to share this PSA made by Maria D’Souza Walters with the folks at Death By Puppets.

Tropes vs. Women: The Damsel in Distress Part 2

Steven here… Anita Sarkeesian is just plain awesome. She’s just put out part 2 of 3 in her series on the “Damsel in Distress” trope. What I love about this series is that it could have been done as “look at how shitty gaming is” and given how many gamers have treated her, that would [Read More...]

Review: Why Are You Atheists So Angry?

Gorillas, starship commanders, and your brain

Steven here… Religion doesn’t have evidence, so it must rely on other means to persuade people to adopt it. One of those is the appeal to personal experience. Believers will tell you that Jesus has appeared before them, perhaps in a vision. Or that something miraculous happened to them which convinced them that there is [Read More...]

This is an excellent thing to do, however there is a problem: Many skeptics have diligently learned what the fallacies are, but end up [Read More...]

Man arrested for trying to be with his husband in the hospital

Steven here… Roger Gorley is not allowed to see his husband. This is because Missouri is one of the states that does not recognize the marriage rights of same-sex couples.

Civility

Steven here… Dan Fincke of Camels with Hammers put out a blog post recently calling on people to sign a civility pledge. A lot of it is completely fair and how we would hope people would behave.
