William Lane Craig and Bryan Fischer don’t like the Secular Hotline Project.

William Lane Craig has taken a break from creating bad rationalizations and condescending, well, everybody, to offer his opinion of the Secular Hotline Project.  Surprise, he doesn’t like it. Recovering from Religion, a secular company seeking to provide people leaving their religious views with various resources, apparently has nothing to say about arguments for or [Read More...]

Uri Geller: super spy.

Some stories you read and it just fills you with sadness that you are governed by very silly people.  The story about Uri Geller being used by the armed forces in a few countries, including the USA, who wish to capitalize on his psychic powers is such a story. Now, the BBC film, to be [Read More...]

Pew: pro-marriage equality stories far outnumber anti-equality stories.

It’s pretty common knowledge that the public opinion on same-sex marriage has shifted greatly in the last four years.  This has produced a happy case of schadenfreude with the Republican party, which not very long ago made gay marriage a primary issue to win elections by appealing to Evangelicals.  Now it’s becoming clear that you [Read More...]

Turns out public funds will NOT be going to religious schools in New Hampshire.

Earlier this year the state of New Hampshire implemented a program that claimed bolster “educational opportunities” but was actually created in the same vein as Louisiana’s voucher system: with the goal of allowing state funds to find their way into the hands of religious, not public, schools. The program provided a large tax credit to [Read More...]

Early bird rates for Apostacon are running out! TIME TO PANIC!

Ok, let me take a moment to be completely forthright with you all. *ahem* APOSTACON IS GOING TO BE FUCKING AWESOME! This will be more awesome than the pope getting arrested for streaking.  It’s taking place at a hotel with massive indoor water park, including a four-story water slide.  Four stories of intense, slippery plunge [Read More...]

Insist the government do the right thing. Sadly, they have about a zero percent chance of obliging.

Here’s a petition asking the federal government to ban creationism in public schools!  It’s redundant because the courts have already made that call, but it’d still be nice to see.  So would unicorns pouring me a beer made out of rainbows.  Both have about the same chance of happening, but it never hurts to ask.

Getting someone with a PhD to focus on elementary prayer case.

An elementary school in South Carolina decided to hold its graduation at nearby North Greenville University, a religious college.  At the graduation two sectarian prayers were given and two parents complained to the AHA which sent a “never do that again” letter to the school. Well, Dr. Jimmy Epting, the university’s president, was unhappy. Dr. [Read More...]

Using legislation to defeat reality in Russia.

In Russia it’s about to become illegal to tell your children about homosexuality. A bill that stigmatizes gay people and bans giving children any information about homosexuality won overwhelming approval Tuesday in Russia’s lower house of parliament.

wtf army?

A man in military fatigues showed up at the house yesterday.  I opened the door and he immediately asked if Tim Eberhard (my brother) lived here.  I told him he didn’t.  He then asked if I knew where he did live. If you jump right into asking where someone lives without telling the person you’re [Read More...]

How to lose a lawsuit.

There is a Good News Club that meets at the local 4th and 5th grade building here in Mountain Home.  My father called me when he was made aware of it to ask what should be done.  I told him the same thing I tell everybody else in those situations: contact the school and tell [Read More...]

Pics from mom and dad’s adventure!

My schedule while house-sitting for mom and dad in Arkansas: Wake up. Read the news. Write blogs. Write book. Walk in the woods. Watch League of Legends summer split. Dance around in my PJs.

Thoughts from morning walk.

I love walking in nature.  The serenity is so conducive to the formulation of new insights and fresh wisdom.  This morning I pondered: why are plays on words called “puns” and not “POWs”?  For one, acronyms rule.  For another, POW would itself be a play on words. Inception. (Tags this post “philosophy”)  I rule. [Read more...]
