Has Christianity done more for science than atheism ever could?

I got sent this article, which is apparently being heralded as a “checkmate atheists” moment.  It’s so full of wrong I need to go through it line by line. Our governor here in Kentucky has decided to implement the new Common Core “Next Generation” science standards. Progressives are celebrating this move for a few reasons [Read More...]

Peter Payne debate: do ethics need a foundation in god?

Here’s my debate with Dr. Peter Payne at UC Santa Cruz.  Leave questions in the comments and I’ll try to answer them over the next week. Huh…I just finished watching the video, which was posted by the Institute for Credible Christianity (a group for which Peter Payne is the managing director).  At around the 56:00 [Read More...]

Ken Ham thinks he has atheist church all figured out.

Ken Ham sees that atheists are starting up godless churches and he just doesn’t get it. So why would atheists do such a thing? If there’s no God, what’s the point? If when you die that’s the end of you and you won’t ever know you even existed, then why bother with starting a church? [Read More...]

Jesus used twitter before twitter was around.

It’s no secret that the Vatican, an organization governed by a clutch of old dudes, is applying the full battery of their intellect toward the problem of the church bleeding out young people.  I can just see them sitting around and saying “What about twitter?  Kids these days are into twitter.  Let’s tell them that [Read More...]

I have an article on richarddawkins.net.

Look, I’m not bragging*, but the RDF just published an article of mine titled “They weren’t lacking in faith, they were lacking in kindness”.  Have you guys seen that story about the pastor who dressed up like a homeless guy?  Yeah, probably not true at all.  But even if it were true, I don’t see [Read More...]

William Lane Craig tries to play science with Lawrence Krauss.

…and Krauss metaphorically backhands him into the Stone Age.  Pro tip: if you’re going to misrepresent physics and quote-mine physicists, maybe don’t do it in a public debate with the guy that many consider to be the world’s greatest living physicist. I’ve listened through this twice today while reading the news and writing.  Pure gold.  [Read More...]

Students for Life attempts to set the record for most lies in three minutes.

Not since the bible have so many untruths been so tightly compacted and expressed with such confidence. Ok, let’s fact-check a few claims.  The first actual claim in the clip is that: “Planned Parenthood says they perform a lot of women’s health services from contraception to mammograms.” At this point a stamp reading “false” is [Read More...]

Matt Barber: gays know they’re being self-destructive.

Oh Matt Barber.  The host of the “Faith and Freedom” radio program (one can only assume they mean the freedom to marry only a person of whom the Liberty Counsel approves) took to the airwaves to say that gay people know they’re being self-destructive.  Here’s the vid: “God has written his laws on the hearts [Read More...]

Pastor arrested for sexually assaulting people he was supposed to be counseling.

A pastor has been caught abusing his position to sexually assault women. An associate pastor at a Norwalk church was being held on $2 million bail Thursday after he was arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting female parishioners, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. Jorge Juan Castro, 53, was arrested Sept. 13 on six [Read More...]

God goes to a party.

This is bloody brilliant (I use the modifier “bloody” because Jim Jefferies is English…I’m so damn cultured). This is what James Croft could be.  :P  (I kid, I kid) [Read more...]
