Man, what a couple of days it has been. Wednesday I awoke to a loud series of crackling pops.  I would’ve thought it was gang warfare except that I don’t live in a neighborhood where gang warfare takes place and it was accompanied by the distinct sizzle of electricity.  I looked up to my bedroom [Read More...]

I don’t even know

Christina here… I’m in a really weird mood today. First I made a prosthetic leg out of Legos, and then I made this (unrelated to Legos*) video.     That is all. *The video about the Legoleg is scheduled for next Wednesday   [Read more...]

Speaking in Cincinnati tomorrow.

Shortly I’ll be hitting the road to Cincy where I’ll be speaking tomorrow night about why the arguments for god’s existence suck.  Big thanks to the Tri-State Freethinkers for having me down. The talk will be from 6pm-8pm with a Q&A thrown in.  The location is the Radisson Hotel at 668 W 5th Street, Covington, [Read More...]

College Republican National Committee: the problem with our LGBT image is that not enough people believe a lie.

The College Republican National Committee has made recommendations to the GOP on how to stop getting pummeled so drastically at the polls by young voters.  Not surprisingly, the CRNC identified gay marriage as one of the problem areas for the Republican Party: With the culture shifting away from the party’s policies, here’s what they recommend: [Read More...]

Many leaders at a conference on religious liberty don’t understand liberty.

Leave it to religious people to hold a convention in the interest of protecting liberty to be oblivious to just what a negative influence they are to the liberty of others in the name of preserving religious privilege. When Singh had finished, Rivers made clear that he holds differing beliefs, and draws the line of [Read More...]

Good news! Drinking Starbucks makes you a sinner.

David Barton would be out of a job for being a fraud if not for Christians who eagerly pay him to lie to them.  Recently he told a whole congregation that you can’t drink Starbucks coffee without opposing Jesus.  You see, Starbucks supports love in the form of marriage equality, and Jesus hates that. “Biblically, [Read More...]

The fruits of superstition in South Africa.

In most African cultures boys must be initiated into manhood (by having circumcision performed).  This often takes place in ingoma (initiation schools) and often without the most sanitary of instruments.  Recently a story broke of a particular school where 28 boys died following the procedure.  To a mind unchained by traditional beliefs formed free from [Read More...]

2013 EVOLVE Award winners.

American Atheists has started an annual tradition.  They are giving out a series of awards called the EVOLVE awards to people who are representing atheists positively.  I think they made spectacular picks. This is what they sent me: American Atheists announced Thursday a new series of annual awards honoring podcasters, musicians, bloggers, and others who [Read More...]

Exorcist with strong connection to reality gives us his credible take on why people are atheists.

Gabriele Amorth is a priest and “expert exorcist”.  He’s such an expert that he founded the International Association of Exorcists in 1990.  Think Ghostbusters, but without being able to see any ghosts and without any technology to deal with the ghosts you can’t see. He thinks the demand for exorcisms is on the rise. The [Read More...]

A science lesson with Erick Erickson.

Erick Erickson, who believes a guy rose from the dead and walked on water (because what do scientists know about surface tension?), recently elected to give the world the courtesy of a free science lesson.  Oh joy. In response to new data revealing the women are now the primary bread-winners in 40% of American homes, [Read More...]

Blood of Christ in short supply.

Venezuela is having some economic troubles that make the USA’s look like child’s play.  There have been reports of people getting into fistfights in stores over diapers because diapers, like so many other things, are in short supply. That includes wine, which has the Catholic Church struggling to deal with their own “emergency”: With no [Read More...]

Study: BDSM practitioners “characterized by a set of balanced, autonomous, and beneficial personality characteristics.”

For people who talk openly about sex (sort of me, but REALLY Christina), we must often deal with the accusation that practicing BDSM or more aggressive forms of sex is the result of poor psychological health or past trauma of some sort. Turns out, that’s not the case.  In a study published in the Journal [Read More...]
