Vote for the One True ™ 3rd party!

DrB-   I’ve come across a fantastically persuasive arguement. It turns out a 2 party system just isn’t going to meet the needs of today’s True Believer.  What’s a god fearing Christian to do? It is time for Christians, true followers of Jesus Christ, to rise up and say NO to satan this November! As [Read More...]

Godless NFL thread.

My Hogs are 1-3.  I never want to talk about football again until the subject is how quickly John L. Smith can be fired as the Razorbacks’ coach. But I will endure.  Sadly, the Raiders are 0-2 and last week all of my picks failed. Last week: My player to watch was Darren McFadden, who [Read More...]

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook Seriously, how many of the poor to middle class Americans will still vote for Romney, [Read More...]

Godless college football thread.

Ugh.  Arkansas.  The Razorbacks have some problems.  Ordinarily just about any SEC team against Rutgers would barely make it onto ESPN3 (and then, only because there was an SEC team playing).  But this game should be unfortunately close today.  However, the hogs do get QB phenom Tyler Wilson back.  That will help. Anyway, for all [Read More...]

It’s all about the source

DrB-   Ever noticed how hard it is to convince a person of a new idea? Something such as one sports team being superior to another, that human activity influences global climate, or that religions aren’t actually true? It turns out, it’s not so much the quality of the information you use, or what facts [Read More...]

Godless necklaces!

The Godless Guild Wars 2 guild has 160 members and is one of the largest guilds in the game!  You can hardly go anywhere on the Gates of Madness server without seeing an atheist.  It’s glorious!

Where I’ll be in October.

I’ll be in a bunch of different places speaking about this and that in October. October 2 – 3 – Rolla, MO speaking to the Secular Student Alliance of Missouri S&T. Frank Turek is the author of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist, one of the most effectively vomit-inducing collection of lies [Read More...]

Catholic priest makes thirteen year olds lick whipped cream off his knee.

You’re probably thinking “Oh, JT is being sensationalist with a blog title.”  No, no I’m not.  That is exactly what happened.  If you’re feeling like your day needs a tremendous swell of moral outrage, follow that link and look at the pictures. A police investigation has been launched after a series of disturbing photos emerged [Read More...]

Comment roundup.

Ryan Baines just left me a treasure trove in this thread.  It’s a remarkable piece of shifting the goalposts and textual diarrhea that fails to address pretty much every point.  In short, it’s the church-goer script. If you have belief in science, then tell me how the Big Bang happened which was proven in the [Read More...]

Contrasting Cartoons

DrB- Just two quick cartoons, first…we’re just that pale blue dot, suspended in a sunbeam. The entirety of our knowledge is just a spec. Second, oddly enough, one of my examples that would persuade me towards a specific religion: If aliens visited and had remarkably similar stories about religious figures or texts, this would prove [Read More...]

Chick-Fil-A wants to have its wedding cake and ban it too.

Remember yesterday when I said I’d believe Chick-Fil-A would change its practices only after I heard it from Dan Cathy’s mouth? (Others said it too.) There was a reason for that. President Dan Cathy tweeted a photo this week from a Chick-fil-A backed fundraiser for a group once described as antigay by an investigation of [Read More...]

Skepticon veteran John Corvino is one of the most brilliant and likable people defending the civil rights of LGBT individuals.  He has just released a series of nine videos addressing the arguments against gay marriage with his trademark brevity and wit.  I’ll post one of them on this post so you can get a taste.  [Read More...]
