Your morning happiness: it’s dangerous to go alone. Take this!

A mighty relic held aloft… Sorry I didn’t post this before the article on Kansas science standards.  It would’ve made that pile of asininity more bearable. [Read more...]

Creationists suing the state of Kansas over science standards.

In debates, such as my debate with Peter Payne, I’m often assured that Christianity and science are 100% compatible.  Of course, I’m never told how people rising from the dead jibes with biology or how someone walking on water jibes with physics, but I’m sure there’s a scientific explanation (the laws of nature totally stopped [Read More...]

Sanctity of life or personal dignity at 17?

I’ve been following the story of the 17 year-old Jehovah’s Witness boy who wishes, on account of the faith with which he was indoctrinated, to refuse a life-saving blood transfusion.  The courts initially ruled that doctors should be allowed to treat the boy. He told his doctors he would rip the IV out of his [Read More...]

Thoughts on the firing of Teresa MacBain.

You’ve probably heard about Teresa MacBain being fired from the Humanist Community Project at Harvard.  The reason for this was because she lied.  On her résumé she repeated a lie that had been circulating since she entered into the atheist movement: that she had a Master’s of Divinity from Duke Divinity School.  It came to [Read More...]

Tonight you can catch myself and David Fitzgerald (author of Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed at All) on AM 980 KKMS Christian talk radio for a debate about the existence of God, etc.  The presence of Dave means I could pretty much play League of Legends the entire show while he does all [Read More...]

Has Christianity done more for science than atheism ever could?

I got sent this article, which is apparently being heralded as a “checkmate atheists” moment.  It’s so full of wrong I need to go through it line by line. Our governor here in Kentucky has decided to implement the new Common Core “Next Generation” science standards. Progressives are celebrating this move for a few reasons [Read More...]

Peter Payne debate: do ethics need a foundation in god?

Here’s my debate with Dr. Peter Payne at UC Santa Cruz.  Leave questions in the comments and I’ll try to answer them over the next week. Huh…I just finished watching the video, which was posted by the Institute for Credible Christianity (a group for which Peter Payne is the managing director).  At around the 56:00 [Read More...]

Ken Ham thinks he has atheist church all figured out.

Ken Ham sees that atheists are starting up godless churches and he just doesn’t get it. So why would atheists do such a thing? If there’s no God, what’s the point? If when you die that’s the end of you and you won’t ever know you even existed, then why bother with starting a church? [Read More...]

Jesus used twitter before twitter was around.

It’s no secret that the Vatican, an organization governed by a clutch of old dudes, is applying the full battery of their intellect toward the problem of the church bleeding out young people.  I can just see them sitting around and saying “What about twitter?  Kids these days are into twitter.  Let’s tell them that [Read More...]

Shamed, ostracized, and controlled by her Mormon parents – but still proud to be an atheist.

I’ve always admired heroes in movies who, when given the choice to comply with a lie or something immoral or face the consequences, chooses the consequences.  I’m now 32 and I attempt to live my life in a incorruptible a way as possible.  When I was in high school?  Forget about it.  I became a [Read More...]
