I really motherfucking love goddamn science

Steven here… Maddox is brilliant. His recent post regarding the Facebook page, “I fucking love science” is pretty interesting. I think most of his criticisms can be summed up as him not liking the page’s name. Perhaps he would like “I fucking love scientists and the end results of the scientific process” instead. I agree [Read More...]

College football open thread.

Arkansas has a bye week, so who cares about college football this week? Oh, that’s right, some atheists.  Ok, fine.  The game to watch this week is undoubtedly #2 Florida vs. #7 South Carolina.  I think SC is the better team, but with Marcus Lattimore out, it’s going to be tough.  I give it to [Read More...]

When the monster was born.

I was not popular in high school.  I wanted to be.  Didn’t we all? Initially I tried being like everybody else and found I wasn’t any good at it.  So eventually I took off in the complete opposite direction, bucking all social norms and claiming that I didn’t care for acceptance.  Of course, that was [Read More...]

Los Links 10/20.

Here’s all my twitter extras from yesterday. Even when no human remains who will stoop to support your prejudice, you can always claim the endorsement of god. Cosmic golf with @everlyevie. <3 pic.twitter.com/x7Bz9FZC This is totally something I would’ve done in college. http://bit.ly/VdtAgn “One shouldn’t attribute malice where incompetence would suffice.” ~ Napoleon Cthulu pulling [Read More...]

Pastor tells it like it is!

Christina here… You really need to watch this video of a pastor from the Brentwood Christian Church in Missouri (my state, woo!) giving a bible-thumping speech about gay rights. TRUST ME. Watch it to the end. This guy was born and raised in Springfield, MO, home of Skepticon. Can somebody invite him to Skepticon? Or [Read More...]

Lauren Lane is not ready for Skepticon 5.

This is my friend Lauren Lane, Skepticon co-founder and one of the organizers to this very day, getting ready for Skepticon 5. Because at Skepticon, we do everything with way more intensity than the task requires. Skepticon! from Kaitlyn Chandler on Vimeo. The whole WWJTD team (Christina, Dr. Dave, Michaelyn, and Steven) will be at [Read More...]

Fallout from Paul Ryan’s photo op.

This is just disgusting. In the wake of Rep. Paul Ryan’s embarrassing soup kitchen photo-oplast week, the organization that runs the facility tells The Huffington Post that donors have begun pulling their money out of the Youngstown, Ohio charity. Ryan may have suffered a few late-night jokes, but the fallout for the soup kitchen appears [Read More...]

Comment roundup 10/19.

I got a live one on twitter who dropped this old bromide… @jteberhard religion can and does make people do bad things, a relationship with the one true God is love and shows love to everyone. — Renee Jones (@brjones64) October 10, 2012 Ok.  The first implication is that whatever Renee Jones believes about god [Read More...]

Binders of shut up and have a baby.

Meet Republican Congressman Joe Walsh, who just can’t figure out why we’re even having the discussion about abortions that could save the mother’s life. In a recent debate with challenger Tammy Duckworth (D), Walsh said he was against abortion “without exception,” including rape, incest and in cases in which the life or health of the [Read More...]

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...]

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...]
