Dear Pastor Parsley…

Rod Parsley is the pastor of the World Harvest Megachurch in Columbus, OH.  He’s an odious man who is big on the prosperity gospel (give us your money and one day god will reward you).  It’s a scam that every week bilks a swath of gullible people. So, of course, I’m on his mailing list. [Read More...]

In the market for storage?

DrB-   I’m in the market for some new binders, (cause magic cards don’t sort themselves you know), and I looked up my options on Amazon. The reviews are golden.       You can find me on twitter, @DrDavidBurger I recruit in Kansas City, & [Read more...]

And the award for most dihonest ad goes to…

The National Organization for Marriage! I was doing some reading over at The Nation and saw this. When did the President put that legislation forward?  Do I at least get to choose my husband when the Gaypocalypse comes down?  If so, I choose Dinesh D’Souza just so I can make his life miserable every day.  [Read More...]

Maddow slamming the political right on denying reality.

Jesus Fucking Fictional Christ on rollerskates, I am going to marry this brilliant lesbian. I have one disagreement with Maddow in this clip.  She said “The Worldnet Daily’s website kind of sucks now.”  C’mon Rachel, that site always sucked. [Read more...]

Reason in the Rock 2012.

In a few weeks I’ll be appearing in Little Rock, Arkansas for Reason in the Rock.  The lineup is to die for: Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist), Jerry DeWitt, Teresa MacBain, Lauren Lane (co-founder of Skepticon), Aron Ra, and others.  The lineup is enough to get me excited about this one, but I’m also excited [Read More...]

Sergeant Invincible.

The following is a conversation between me and my friend David from this morning.  He’s explaining the Marvel RPG system to me.  (I’m [ADEMA] Zero…ADEMA was our clan tag for Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 and stands for the Alternative Department of Emergency Military Assistance.  Our RP was that we were a band of [Read More...]

Donate to Greta Christina, you know you wanna.

Christina here…         I once had the pleasure of driving Greta and Ingrid from St. Louis to Springfield for Skepticon.  I’ve also had the pleasure of seeing her speak many times, and she once (unknowingly) helped my friend from the brink of suicide with her writing. She’s recently been diagnosed with cancer, [Read More...]

The joke that could’ve been.

I woke up this morning with a plan: I was going to write the most outlandish post I could imagine just to see if people would believe it.  I went into the transcript from the second presidential debate and remembered Mitt Romney’s strange answer to the issue of gun control. “But let me mention another [Read More...]

A man of my word.

You guys are great.  It warms the cockles of my cold, hard atheist heart to see all of you pulling together for Greta. As promised, here’s my donation. Remember, if ten people subscribe to Greta’s blog, I will follow suit.  Keep the donations coming and please make me subscribe! [Read more...]

Greta Christina has cancer. We can help.

One of my dearest friends, who has been a hero to me for much of my adulthood and who continues to be an inspiration to myself and others, Greta Christina, has been diagnosed with cancer. As far as cancer goes, it’s the good kind.  She has endometrial cancer and they caught it early, so odds [Read More...]

Los Links 10/18.

Here are all the juicy extras from twitter yesterday that didn’t make it onto the blog – this time with an irrelevant, but nostalgic picture of a character that was on my mind. Hey @MittRomney, I got u dis. These are the lights Dinesh D’Souza had installed in his house. This is why [Read More...]

D’Souza was naughty.

Dinesh D’souza is one of those “top tier” Christian apologists who is always getting thrown at me.  You know Dinesh, right?  He’s the one who argues that Christianity makes someone more moral.  That’s why in his book, What’s So Great About Christianity, he wrote… “As fallible human beings we can be wrong about a lot [Read More...]

Tisha on Tosh.0.

Given all the doom and gloom on the blog lately, here’s a little ray of god damn sunshine. A while back I got to meet one of Christina‘s friends on a visit to St. Louis, Tisha.  She was a plucky, fun lady who was born without arms.  I even got to interview her (and get [Read More...]

Quote of the day: Newt Gingrich. Srsly.

Ok, so I don’t usually do a quote of the day post.  But this quote was just so delicious I made one anyway.  It’s Newt Gingrich dogging on Mitt Romney for the heartless way Romney makes money. I’m for capitalism. I’m for honest entrepreneurs investing, I’m for people creating businesses. Callista and I have created [Read More...]
