Megaman X review

There’s been some gloom and doom what with the new med posts lately.  Also, I haven’t done a gaming post in a while.  So here’s something upbeat.  [Read more...]

Point out your plot holes elsewhere

DrB- Prepare to be converted heathens! A statue in Mumbai has started leaking tears. Naturally, huge crowds gathered, people gathered the tears into vials, a modern miracle right in front of them. It was changing lives. You had better dust off that Bible. [Read more...]

Do you live in Tennessee? Want to make some noise?

Tennessee passed an idiotic bill that would allow non-science to be taught in public school science classes.  Tomorrow at 2:00pm at the Capitol building in Nashville there will be a rally to oppose it.  If you’re in Tennessee, you should be there. Give Gov. Haslam an earful – he deserves it.  Christina did a good [Read More...]

Darrel Ray on the Therapist Project

In response to some of the comments on my post yesterday announcing the launch of the Therapist Project, Dr. Ray submitted the following guest post. Reading some of the comments from JT’s post on our new initiative, The Therapist Project, I thought I would clarify its purpose and discuss the greater issue of religion’s place [Read More...]

Wellbutrin: not going well

Today marks my second day on Wellbutrin, which was prescribed to help me focus. It is sapping my energy, slowing me down mentally, and today I have been angry at everything, even at people close to me, and I’ve been hallucinating all day (same ol’ with my reflection).  I know I’m openly angry about things [Read More...]

Mass atheist suspension on Twitter – Correction

Christina here… CORRECTION: I was wrong!  Appearances can sometimes lead people to wrong  conclusions. I concluded from the mass suspension of atheists on Twitter yesterday that it could be due to a campaign by other twitter users to report the suspended users as spam.  Well, turns out Twitter updated their spam-catching algorithms, which started suspending users [Read More...]

Faith-based opposition doesn't help

This letter has been floating around the tubes.  It was sent to the home of Jessica Ahlquist. How evil does she have to be for these people to be the good guys? [Read more...]

Launch of the Therapist Project

Dr. Darrel Ray has been secretly laying the groundwork for a monumental undertaking.  Yesterday, it launched. It is called “The Therapist Project” and it kicks the ass of literally every person on planet earth and their ancestors. If you are looking for a secular mental health professional, this is the first place to look. Through [Read More...]

It's not all bad: mental illness edition

I got this email a few days ago.  Re-reading it makes me feel a little better about battling my particular mental illness publicly. I just wanted to thank you and Christina for your openness about your mental illness. Two weeks ago I went to the doctor and got treatment for my anxiety/depression. For the first time [Read More...]

Mental illness update: new meds

I take SSRIs.  They keep me stable, but there are downsides.  For one, they make me fuzzy and easily distracted.  The best description I’ve ever heard is that it’s like thinking through cotton.  It makes it hard to quickly recall facts, it makes me slower to solve puzzles.  However, the benefit of not being controlled [Read More...]

God loves a good practical joke

With Rick Santorum announcing the conclusion of his bid for the Republican nomination, all three candidates who assured us that god wanted them to run have now dropped out. There can really be only two explanations for this. 1.  God loves a good practical joke. 2.  People assign the will of god to their own [Read More...]

Day of comments #4: The value of human life

I did a post earlier featuring a comment by Icy Cantu.  Icy didn’t feel moved to provide evidence for why Christianity is true, but he did threaten everybody who didn’t believe the same way he did.  I pointed that out. Icy came back with more of the same. I live in a farming community. If [Read More...]

Oh look, public schools in TN can teach creationism.

Christina here.. A bill you might object to in TN just became a law. This happened.             Gov. Bill Haslam has declined to sign Tennessee’s so-called evolution bill, which protects teachers who criticize evolution, global warming and other scientific theories. The Republican governor did not veto the measure or sign [Read More...]

Prison sentences for insulting Islam.

Christina here… A Christian teenager in Egypt was sentenced to three years in prison. His crime:             Posting cartoons to his facebook page that mocked Islam and Mohammad. CAIRO (Reuters) – An Egyptian court on Wednesday sentenced a 17-year-old Christian boy to three years in jail for publishing cartoons on his [Read More...]
