Rebecca Hamilton didn’t read my response, but thinks it’s petty, small, second-rate tripe.

Rebecca Hamilton has a comment policy on her blog that seems about as random as what the GOP is scared shitless about this week (is it gays? Ebola? The minority vote? Roll the dice and let’s find out!).  She moderates contrary comments heavily, often blocking perfectly polite comments that point out how she has been [Read More...]

A constitutional law student’s take on Scalia’s recent comments on secularism

So while I’m running for office, I’m also a student at the University of North Texas, earning my BA in Political Science with an emphasis in Public Law. This means my focus of study has been on the judicial system and constitutional law. I consider myself very knowledgeable of the Supreme Court and the rulings [Read More...]

Lord’s Prayer forced on students in Texas high school marching band

This story was brought to my attention by a friend and neighbor who is the mother of a student who will soon be attending Lewisville High School, part of the Lewisville Independent School District (LISD) that my daughter also goes to, and she was worried that her student might feel left out of the high school [Read More...]

Matt Dillahunty’s Atheist Debates – Argument from Design part 1: Order and Purpose.

This summer Matt Dillahunty founded the Atheist Debates Patreon project.  It was so successful that Matt is now making videos on debating apologists for a living, which is great for atheism.  Matt is, in my eyes, one of our most skilled debaters and perhaps the best communicator in the business. The first video produced for [Read More...]

The Thinking Atheist from last night with Matt Dillahunty, Tracie Harris, and myself.

Last night I was on Seth Andrews’ show with a couple luminaries of counter-apologetics: Matt Dillahunty and Tracie Harris from the Atheist Experience.  It was a great time.  If you don’t listen for Matt and Tracie dropping wisdom on how to beat religious arguments, listen because of how aroused Seth Andrews’ voice makes men and [Read More...]

I don’t think Answers in Genesis quite gets science Pt. 3 (of 3)

In part 1 and part 2, I currently addressing this article from Answers in Genesis. I’m not too happy how part 2 came out. I was mostly grinding through dumb stuff, but this next part, which I’ve been itching to get to, has some interesting (to me, at least) topics. I probably should have just skipped [Read More...]

Squeak

Hello. My identification is “Jasper”. I am a socially anxious biped, and apparently I’m going to write a couple posts here while JT goes off and does things. For the most part, I wish to remain anonymous, mostly due to fears of future potential employers searching my name, though some effort could probably reveal who [Read More...]

Joshua Feuerstein (or whatever apologetics website he last read) “destroys” evolution in 3 minutes.

Everybody and their grandma is sending me this clip of some random guy in a facebook video who claims to destroy almost the entire field of biology in three minutes.  No studies, no experiments, no peer review, no degree (undergrad or otherwise) in biology, just chillin’ in the back of a car taking a selfie. [Read More...]

My dad is in an online debate with Arkansas state sen. Jason Rapert right now…and making him look like a fool.

Ok, quick back story before we get to the good stuff. (If you already know about Jason Rapert and his opposition to marriage equality, or if you just want to read about my dad intellectually beating his ass to his face, you can skip down to the cut point…you’ll see it) Last month a judge [Read More...]

Matt Dillahunty hands Sye Ten Bruggencate the beating for which he begged.

Ordinarily I don’t enjoy watching a professional in anything stomp the shit out of somebody of significantly lesser talent who only got a shot at the title because they made enough noise.  But because Sye Ten Bruggencate is such a loathsome person, I really enjoyed watching Matt Dillahunty slap him around: From his first argument [Read More...]
