The spoils of our charitable efforts.

When several of the most excellent atheist organizations made the call for help in the Chase Community Giving competition, you guys responded. You went and voted and you spread the word.  Now the SSA has another $50,000 and Camp Quest and Foundation Beyond Belief are both $20,000 richer.  You are all to be commended. It [Read More...]

Ode to the stupidly brave troll.

It’s gotten so that for most talks I give, some believer will charge into the facebook event page or onto my blog ahead of time, puff out their chest, and declare that they are coming to my talk and are going to ask questions during the Q&A.  What response do they anticipate? “Oh no!

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?

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...]
