Saudi Arabia prohibits Raif Badawi’s sister from traveling abroad.

Many of you have followed the sad case of Raif Badawi: Last year, 30-year-old Saudi Arabian blogger Raif Badawi was punished for starting a progressive website that called for, among other things, religious tolerance and women’s rights. That was insulting to Islam, said his critics. He was sentenced at the time to seven years in prison and 600 [Read More…]

Bill Donohue: atheists are literally insane and live shorter lives.

Bill Donohue, the leader of the Catholic League and a man who once feverishly spread the message that condoms increase the rate of AIDS transmission, has a new message: Because if you don’t believe a Canaanite Jew walked on water, rose from the dead, and speaks to you in your head it must be you [Read More…]

During our conversation he said something about “that Plan B abortion pill” and my immediate response [Read More…]

Proving the existence of Allah to an atheist

I love looking into articles such as this, which discuss how to convert atheists. They provide interesting insights into the epistemological thingamajigs of theists. This is how they think supporting claims works. Though, often they’re just trying to “play the atheists’ game” against them, even if the arguments aren’t why they believe in the first [Read More…]

“What does that say about your religion?”

Someone upset that I’m paying so much attention to a clear and obvious (and clearly and obviously illegal) bit of discrimination reared her head on my facebook: It’s so frustrating trying to have a discussion with someone who won’t frame the issue fairly.  Like playing soccer with someone who just keeps trying to hide the [Read More…]

My brother defends freedom of speech while giving a civics 101 lesson.

I’m so proud of my family.  For anybody who admires me, trust me when I say I’m the least-impressive member of my family.  My father, my mother, my brother…they’re all people to whom I greatly look up.

If ever you wanted to do me a favor, help alter this poll and share it for others to do the same.

Do me a favor: go vote “no” in this poll (it’s about my hometown putting up a nativity on the courthouse lawn while simultaneously denying the local freethinkers a “Happy Solistice!” banner on the same grounds). And then share it for others to do the same.  I know a lot of you think it’s just [Read More…]

I just don’t get Ben Carson.

I just don’t get Ben Carson.  Clearly the guy is a genius caliber intellect when it comes to neurosurgery.  I just don’t get how someone so clearly intelligent can say such stupid things.  Nowhere was this more apparent than with two recent interviews. Carson made the comments during a March interview with conservative news outlet [Read More…]
