Hiking and Such

Stuff like this is why I’ve been absent over the last week.  :) [Read more...]

No Free Passes for Bullshit!

Our local paper here in Bumblefuck, Arkansas, like any other paper, prints opinion columns.  Here is one that is fairly representative of the common fare. Unmatched freedoms John Brummett’s column about holiday greetings and Christmas again brings up what I believe to be his real agenda, which is the liberal left’s war on Christians and [Read More...]

A Bet Lost

A while back I made a bet with my friend Ashley, who is a Kansas City Chiefs fan (and yet, somehow still my friend).  She bet that Kansas City would beat Oakland.  Of course, I bet on the Raiders.  They were crushing KC in virtually every statistical category. Then, right before the game, Oakland’s starting [Read More...]

I'll Take "Things I Never Thought Would Happen" for a Hundred

I…never thought I’d see the day…but I actually agree with Antonin Scalia on something. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia isn’t a supporter of legalizing drugs. But he does believe that passing federal laws against them has done harm to the U.S. government. “It was a great mistake to put routine drug offenses into the federal [Read More...]

On Jealousy

When I talk about polyamory there is a particular sentiment that always comes up: “I couldn’t do that, I’d be too jealous.” And I’m happy for those people.  “To thine own self be true” was one of the most potent droplets of wisdom in the ocean of Shakespeare’s work.  Acknowledging that jealousy is present and [Read More...]

A Statue of Hitch

A growing number of non-believers are petitioning London officials to provide a plot for a memorial statue of Christopher Hitchens within London.  I added my signature to the list.  If you’d like to follow suit, give this link the clicky clicky. [Read more...]

VLOG: Dissolving Mice in Mountain Dew

For your viewing pleasure, have a bideo. I’ll pretend to kitchen science for you!     Hopefully my friend Sarah (who filmed) and I will amuse (and possibly disgust) you.   Learn more about Christina and follow her @ziztur. [Read more...]

The Top 10 Anti-Christian Acts of 2011

(Christina here…) DefendChristians.org puts out a reader-submitted list of the “Top Ten Anti-Christian Acts of…” each year. Let’s discuss. The Top Ten Anti-Christian Events in 2011 are: 10) NBC television network twice took the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance in its lead-up to the U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club.  How DARE [Read More...]

Mountain Dew Mice Experiment Begins!

I told you I was serious. Yesterday I posted a quick post about doing experiments with mice after reading Pepsi’s explanation about why a mouse could not have been found in a can of Mountain Dew. Apparently, a man from Illinois allegedly grabbed a can of Mountain Dew from a vending machine, opened it, drank, [Read More...]

What a Bunch of Rubes

The contents of this post represent the opinions of JT Eberhard, not the Secular Student Alliance. What does it say of Christianity that, when wielded by some people who are utter rubes, clueless about both history or science, that their belief in the absurd can trump actual intelligence in the eyes of the voting populace? [Read More...]

Jumping on the sexism train. Again.

Okay, I’ve decided to read this post by Mallorie concerning sexism in the atheist/skeptic movement. You know, the post that one man tweeted about… I’m going to throw my voice into the fray and see what happens. For as long as I can remember I have been welcomed in to communities which were generally considered “sausage fests”. If [Read More...]


Michaelyn (Trophy Primary Girlfriend™) is visiting me down in Arkansas. We’re going to spend the next several days holding hands, staring at the moon, watching the sunrise, walking through the woods, taking note of how vibrant the colors are now, laying in fields and staring at the stars, and drinking in the world now that [Read More...]

Mountain Dew and Mice? EXPERIMENT TIME!

I read this news article on Pepsi’s defense of a man who claimed to have found a mouse in his can of Mountain Dew. Pepsi Co., facing a lawsuit from a man who claims to have found a mouse in his Mountain Dew can, has an especially creative, if disgusting, defense: their soda would have [Read More...]

The Premise of Spreading Creationism is Pretentious as all Hell

Jonathan sent me a link to a creationist web site.  It’s the same stuff you’d expect, but the very first line on the site spells out the problem (and arrogance) of creationists beautifully. We all know that the book of Genesis as real history is not treated seriously in our public schools nor in the media, [Read More...]
