Larry Doesn’t Get Science Pt 5 – Analogies

This is part of a series: [Index]. Part 5 – this isn’t so much addressing an argument of Larry’s, but rather, an issue I see about analogies themselves. This will be a digression. [Read more...]

REMINDER: If you’re going to Apostacon you can help me get there just by buying your tickets!

Hey all.  I’ll be doing a workshop at Apostacon this year (probably over how to not suck at debating).  The way they cover people doing workshops is interesting: I get a special link and if people buy their tickets through that link, I get points.  If 20 people buy their tickets through my link, I [Read More...]

Help out Ben Blanchard.

Ben just dedicated a year of his life to humanitarian efforts in the third world.  He’s an atheist activist and one of the nicest people I’ve met in all my years on the road. Sadly, he just had to spend a week in the hospital.  He’s insured, but as I can attest, being an activist [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: “Oh! You made me muffins!”

Today’s date will include dinner, Sharknado 2 (no spoilers!), and a board game night.  :) For your morning happiness, here’s a dog that thinks he’s people:       And because I’m taking the day off for date times, you need something to make you depressed to justify the morning happiness post.  Here’s a child [Read More...]

Maybe they should massage their toes more

A number of my family on Facebook are religious. Unfortunately, that seems to be heavily correlated to being just plain gullible – everything from sharing astrology posts, to “Here’s a photo of a coin – share it and money will come your way!“. Typically this leaves my eye twitching, but sometimes it’s much more serious. [Read More...]

Steven Colbert eviscerates Sarah Palin’s new internet channel.

This may be my favorite Colbert clip of all time. The Colbert Report Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes,The Colbert Report on Facebook,Video Archive It will be such a travesty when he goes to take over The Late Show.  John Oliver is doing a great job though and should inherit Colbert’s throne. Also, even though [Read More...]

Blogging mental illness: dealing with relapse via humor.

Everybody deals with hardships in their own way.  I’ve often said that I deal with mine by joking about them.  Even though anorexia led to a suicide attempt for me in the past, I still make jokes about my condition and laugh when others do so.  It’s cathartic. Anyway, still waiting on getting in to [Read More...]

Diocese of Milwaukee just can’t spare the money for legal fees.

The arch diocese of Milwaukee is having a rough decade.  Most of it stems from Timothy Dolan, who was in the running to be the next pope, shuffling around child-raping priests.  The diocese was then sued by several of the victims and, in order to protect the money (i.e., to avoid compensating the victims), Dolan [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: riding a camel to a hot date tomorrow.

I get paid every 25,000 hits.  What that means is that if I end the month with 299,999 page views, I essentially don’t get paid for 24,999 views.  So sometimes the stars align in such a way that it wouldn’t make a great deal of sense for me to work the last day of the [Read More...]

A Stunning Apologetic

Does anyone know of a decent, credible online service thing that will essentially take a snapshot (not image, but rather just HTML content) of a website, as a 3rd party? I’d like to have an independent verification I can appeal to, in case a website later decides to scrub their content. I’m thinking Google cache, but [Read More...]

The gay agenda is about kicking out everybody who won’t have sex with everyone else. Thanks Pat Robertson!

Oh, you thought they were anti-discrimination laws implemented only to make sure minorities aren’t treated like shit by the majority?  Well think again!  They’re actually laws set up specifically to make society dangerous and to set it up for the judgment of god.  These laws aren’t just saying “If you want to discriminate, you need [Read More...]

Response to Mark Sandlin’s article in TIME about wanting Christianity back.

Mark Sandlin of Patheos got himself an article published in TIME.  First thing’s first, congrats to Mark.  That’s an honor few writers achieve.  Now for some of the reasons I think his article missed the mark.  Mark writes about the baggage liberal Christians must put up with since Christianity has become associated with discrimination, scientific [Read More...]

University of Kansas to teach creationism course…my kind of creationism course.

::EDIT:: This is what I get for not checking the date on articles people send me.  This is from 2005.  Derp. ::/EDIT:: The University of Kansas is making a wonderful move to oppose creationism in a state that desperately needs it: A course being offered next semester by the university religious studies department is titled [Read More...]
