More restaurants that suck.

We just keep adding more.  This is the fourth post of this type (you can read the first, second, and third). Today’s sadness: I now have to avoid two of my favorite fast food places. Roughly 100 Wendy’s employees in the Omaha, Nebraska area will have their weekly schedules reduced to 28 hours a week [Read More…]

Petition the government to tax churches.

I got sent one of those “official petition to the White House” type things about taxing the churches.  My optimism that these things will produce anything other than an humorous reply that is full of epic from a science adviser is pretty small.  Still, what could it hurt?  I especially liked this line.

Zach Kopplin: still a little guy, even though he’s doing big things.

I was reading this article about Zach Kopplin, who is a one-man wrecking crew against creationism down in Louisiana.  Most of us know all the good things that Zach is doing, but this is the part that stood out to me. “This was a pivotal moment for me,” Kopplin told io9. “I had always been [Read More…]

Volunteer for Camp Quest Kansas City!

I have volunteered at Camp Quest Ohio for the last two years and I will likely do so again this coming summer.  It’s about the closest thing to magic as I’ve ever experienced.  Being a part of young people developing critical thinking skills and, frankly, watching many of them know more about religion and science [Read More…]
