I got an email from a Christian creationist having a crisis in faith, at least with regard to the creationist part of his beliefs. He said he wants to be honest and to have a “rational faith”, though he admits the irony in that phrase. He saw my video series disproving the Biblical flood and said that he “found it compelling, but incredibly jarring and difficult to absorb”. He wants to understand the evidence and be intellectually honest about it…. Read more

Once again, my wife and I testified before the Texas State Board of Education in Austin; this time regarding the content of our Social Studies textbooks. To their credit, the board is now considering removing some things that we told them four years ago should not have been included in the first place. They want to promote American exceptionalism, which means they don’t want to teach any of the mistakes our country has made. They don’t want students to know that… Read more

Should Texas students be told that Moses and Judeo-Christian Biblical Law influenced the founding of our laws? According to the Texas Freedom Network, the Texas School Board will be hearing testimony on this on Tuesday, June 12th, and some other culture war questions that politicize history such as: Was the Civil War about State’s Rights? Was McCarthyism justified? Is the separation of Church and State a key constitutional principle? As a Thomas B. Fordham Institute recent review of Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills… Read more

  “Hello! You’ve reached ChristianApologist.com. And I’m S. J. Thomason, and today I’m gonna present to you eleven questions that atheists cannot answer. The first question: How do you explain why the early Christian martyrs preached for decades, saying they saw the risen Christ?” Shall we start with Paul? As I understand it, he seems to have seen a flash of light and heard voices that his friends around him couldn’t hear. Some scholars think that he had a stroke,… Read more

When trying to reason with Biblical literalists, they’ll say their Bible is historically accurate even though the best they can show is that only some of the people and places mentioned in those fables were real; which of course they would be since fictional stories are usually set in real places and often mention famous people of that time. But there is absolutely no historical or archaeological evidence that the stories are true, and Bible scholars often admit that they’re… Read more

Some religious propagandists like to pretend that they are just and good and righteous and that anyone who believes differently is somehow inherently evil, especially if we don’t have any faith-based beliefs at all. As if none of us have ever done anything good, which of course means they have to ignore all the good that so many of us actually do, and instead exaggerate the bad as much as possible, even if they have to lie to do that…. Read more

YouTube’s changes in policy caused a few of my older videos to be demonetized as “not suitable for all advertisers”. Among them, this video below correcting the pervasive lies that Darwin was a racist eugenicist and that Hitler was an atheist Darwinist. Of course the reverse is true, but believers don’t want to know that, and I’m being commercially penalized for it. I requested a review. The response I got, and have gotten a few times now, is that even… Read more

My videos are often preceded by religious ads, which is both annoying and amusing especially since the video sometimes rebuts the ad that just played before it. I noticed an example of that last night when this ad appeared in front of one my videos presenting evidence of evolution. The “Missing Universe Museum” (whatever that’s supposed to be) is trying to raise money to make a (what they fantasize will be) a “major motion picture” attempting to disprove evolution. However… Read more

My recent confrontation with Kent Hovind, seems to have disturbed an ant hill of his sycophants; most are too immature and cognitively incapable to even attempt to reason with. The following (in italics) is by far the most intelligent comment I’ve yet seen from Hovind’s lot, if that tells you anything. Someone went through the trouble to type out a Docx file that I found in my inbox this morning. Everything in bold here was also underlined. Rather than email back, I think… Read more

So Elon Musk built a magnificent phallic symbol, bigger than the Saturn V and used it to launch a red convertible sports car into deep space while playing David Bowie, just to show off what he can do. At the same time, a reality-denying flat-earther with a homemade strap-on fireworks display that is actually smaller than my car just couldn’t schwing his pocket rocket into action. I don’t know what the excuse was. He can’t say this never happened before,… Read more
