About 3.5 years ago, I went to the San Diego Creation Museum with a few others from Generation Atheist and since I blogged about it then, I wanted to share that hilarious and horrifying experience with all of you!   October 3, 2010   Creation Museum – San Diego So about a week ago, at pharyngula’s prompting, [Read More...]

No Jesus Tattoos in Heaven

God hates tattoos, or at least The 700 Clubs Pat Robertson thinks so. A caller told Robertson that she was considering a Jesus tattoo on her upper back and wondered if that would make the tattoo okay. “It doesn’t make it okay because it’s religious, believe me,” Robertson asserted. “I mean, it could be a [Read More...]

Mark Gungor and The Creeping Futility of Welding God to Sex

One of the great things about evolution is that it explains the baffling nuances of human sexual life without the need for any knots of metaphysical moral mongering.  It’s that clarity you gain when you ask What Is rather than What Ought, and seek answers from the bottom up (so to speak) rather than the [Read More...]

The runaway blogger

If you’re an atheist from Christianity, Mormonism, Hinduism or any other religion than Islam, you put yourself at the risk of getting excommunicated – from your society, may be from your own family. That’s the maximum risk you take. But lo, if you’re an atheist from a Muslim background, you’re simply doomed. You put yourself [Read More...]

I don’t think Answers in Genesis quite gets science Pt. 1

[Warning - these posts will not be succinct] Historical versus Observational Science…. two thingies that seem to imply a mutual exclusion between the two. I wanted to write an article addressing these misconceptions in the epistemology behind the two terms. You may recall, this came up repeatedly in the recent Ken Ham/Bill Nye debate; again [Read More...]

Your Morning Happiness: Hammock Huskies and a Proud Scalebaby Mom

I subscribe to the utoobz channel the following video is from. Their vids are a mix of all around cuteness, every day silliness of the 3 huskies they have, pet product reviews, and fan mail Q&A. Huskies are a misunderstood breed, as the questions they have to often answer repetitively illustrate. When we first moved [Read More...]

NY Court Says, “Stop Sending Your Unvaccinated Kids to School”

Finally a court has stood up to the anti-vaccination crazies. In New York City, parents will no longer have the right to send their unvaccinated kids to school. According to a Brooklyn Federal District Court judge, in a ruling last week stated that a parent’s constitutional right to freely exercise their religion does not always [Read More...]

In very first law passed by Congress the founding fathers took god out.

I can’t even get through a day without breaking my own self-imposed ban.  But I’ll try to keep it quick.  Ever wonder what was the first law Congress ever passed?  Well, this was it: An Act to regulate the Time and Manner of administering certain Oathswas the first law passed by the Congress assembled after [Read More...]

This Week in Secular Parenting…

Since I’m new to JT’s blog, let me introduce myself very quickly. My name is Daniel Moran. I am the Democratic candidate for Texas House District 63. I won’t discuss that today though, because I have something else I’d like to talk about. For us parents out there with no religious affiliation, whether we call ourselves [Read More...]

Just call me the Grievin’ Heathen

JT has asked us to start out by introducing ourselves, which seems like a reasonable request. I’m Rebecca Hensler. If you have heard of me, it is because I started Grief Beyond Belief, the secular support network for anyone grieving without belief in god(s) or an afterlife. You may even know a little of my [Read More...]

Sneaking back in with wedding prep pictures.

Never thought I’d have to sneak back in among the posts on my own blog… Last night the party began.  Two of my groomsmen, David and Jeremiah, are in town.  We spent the night playing games (Lords of Waterdeep and Sentinels of the Multiverse).  We also made fish bowls with mom and dad. Today we’re [Read More...]

The 3-Year-Old Kicked Out of KFC Was a Hoax

I bet a lot of you saw the heartbreaking story of a little three-year-old girl who was attacked by her grandfather’s dog and suffered serious facial damage was kicked out of a KFC because her facial scars were scaring the customers. KFC quickly apologized and donated $30,000 to the girls family to help pay for [Read More...]

Guest post by Dr. Darrel Ray: sex addiction is a non-existent diagnosis.

Not that long ago, there was a whole cottage industry developed around the psychological treatment and rehabilitation of homosexuals or “reparative therapy.” Professionally trained men and women, using scientific terminology, dedicated themselves to helping homosexuals get over their crippling psychological problems and reintegrate back into society. Most people today scoff at such a concept, and [Read More...]
