On Recognizing Design

The Cult of Dusty guy (Dusty), recently put out a video (below) about yet another of Joshua Feuerstien’s not-researched disproofs of evolution. It’s an extremely caustic video, probably NSFW, yet, strangely satisfying. I take issue (not necessarily with this video) with his word choices often, such as being ableist, so it’d be nice if he [Read More…]

GAY RIGHTS & LAW: Some Alabama probate judges still not issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Mobile County Probate Judge Don Davis was sued for refusing to abide by the federal court ruling eliminating Alabama’s gay marriage ban.  After a hearing in front of Callie Granade, the same federal judge who struck down the ban, Davis got the message and immediately started issuing licenses to same-sex couples. However, even though Granade [Read More…]

SCIENCE: Documents reveal that popular climate change-denying scientist is a corporate shill.

It turns out that Dr. Wei-Hock Soon, a darling of the people who want to claim the science suggests human beings are not responsible for the warming of our planet (while ignoring what virtually every climate scientist has to say on the matter), is – surprise – bought and paid for by people with a [Read More…]

PERSONAL: Good god I’m a terrible cook.

I want to show my wife I love her, so I think to myself that I’ll surprise her with a really nice multi-ingredient mac & cheese dinner (she loves mac & cheese like the Vatican loves money).  The problem is that I’m a god awful cook.  Like, I’m literally the worst.  Think of the dumbest, [Read More…]

CHARITY & ACTIVISM: Help Sarah Hargreaves raise money for Camp Quest!

Sarah Hargreaves with Camp Quest Kansas City is turning 31.  She doesn’t want presents for her birthday.  Instead she wants people to help make CQKC as special as possible this coming summer.  That means money (I can assure you, you’d be hard pressed to find a workaholic who will make that money go farther than [Read More…]

FAITH: Saudi man receives death penalty for insulting Mohammad and ripping pages from the Koran.

A man in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to death for blasphemy: specifically for insulting a man who married a six year-old and slept with her when she was nine years-old (Mohammad) and for ripping pages from a book he owned.  This sentence came not from ISIS, not from a terrorist cell, but from a [Read More…]

FAITH & POLITICS: Muslim prayer to ND House canceled because GOP members “didn’t agree with it.”

I’m a little late to this party, but this is lame enough to still merit a post.  Dr. Nadim Koleilat is a Muslim religious leader in North Dakota who was invited to give the opening prayer in the ND House last Wednesday.  While the decision in Greece v. Galloway allows for sectarian religious prayers before [Read More…]

SCIENCE: National Geographic’s latest cover – the war on science.

Thank you, Nat Geo.  Sadly, the people who need to read this issue or at least look at the cover don’t read National Geographic, and pretty much don’t care what scientists think (until they want faster computers or better medical technology, of course).   Joel Achenback has the cover story titled “Why Do So Many [Read More…]

MORNING HAPPINESS: The Fence.

My favorite Tim Minchin song is “The Fence.”  It really captures how my outlook has changed as I’ve gotten older.  The more I learn about things, the more I really don’t know exactly where I stand – and I’m less likely to make those choices quickly, and far more hesitant to align myself with people [Read More…]

MENTAL ILLNESS: Time to go be a lab rat.

The time has come for me to take off for Kansas City.  I’ve signed up to be a test subject in an fMRI study dealing with clinical depression.  I’m honestly more giddy about this than I thought I would be. First, I get pictures of my brain.  Michaelyn has pictures of her brain.  We’re going [Read More…]

POLITICS: Oklahoma bill would bar people from getting married if they have an STD.

The Oklahoma government must’ve taken a look at Alabama and Arkansas lately and been like, “Oh, you think you can waste more time and bigot harder than us?  Ha!”  That’s the only explanation for their recent bill that would punish government employees for following the law as well as this new bill that would prohibit [Read More…]
