A couple years ago, Ray Comfort tried to get Richard Dawkins to debate him.  I am convinced that he did this only to try to make himself seem more important than he could ever be otherwise.  Dawkins wasn’t generous enough to give Ray that much undeserved credibility.  So I posted a challenge to Ray myself. Of course he ignored me, but it generated some positive interest on the web.  Yahoo.Answers even posted the question, Who would win in a debate between… Read more

Some folks are trying to raise money for MSF (Doctors w/o Borders) by auctioning off autographed photos of some of the participants on the charity drive.  Look at what Matt Dillahunty’s photo is up to.  Now look at how much they’re bidding for mine.    Read more

I’m sleeping in late tomorrow, because I mean to ride out the whole 24 hour charity drive.  It starts at 10:00am my time, (central time) Saturday morning on DPRJones’ BlogTV channel. I’ll be interviewing Mr. Deity at midnight my time, which will be 10:00pm his time, (Pacific) and 6:00am for DPR Jones, who is hosting this thing.  At 9:00am central on Sunday, I’ll be back -following the Thinking Atheist’s interview with little miss Jessica Ahlquist.  At that time, I’ll be… Read more

One of the more irritating arguments in the ‘crevo’ controversy are the lies of equivocation.  The game is played by a creationist pretending to be objective -when he and we all know he is not- while projecting all of his own logical fallacies onto the science-minded, who of course do not share any of those flaws. Typically that game has the creationist telling some or all of the following lies: *Evolution is a religion. *Science relies on faith just like… Read more

There is one more thing I need Bob Enyart to be aware of before he posts his final submission to our debate, because this is going to matter, and he should know that he’ll have to address this particular point or it will cost him. Now I don’t really expect him to honestly concede EVERYTHING he got wrong in our debate.  He’s a pastor.  Think about it.  Having to admit that you lied -about everything- to all those people in… Read more

Three weeks ago, I posted a notice about the online debate I’ve been having with Pastor Bob Enyart of Denver Bible Church.  There hasn’t been much direct communication between us since this thing began.  One of his minions occassionally checks the boards for messages, and recently relayed a notice from Bob.   He says he is about to post his 6th submission -nearly two months after my last one to him.  The only reason I mention that is whenever I have taken… Read more

I’m sure I’m not the only one here on FtB participating in the academic study of atheists conducted by the sociology department of Berkeley University.  I just want to share my answers to their questionnaire. Background Questions: 1. Were you raised atheist or did you have a religious upbringing of some sort? I was raised in an exclusively creationist environment.  Most of my family were country redneck Christians of no particular denomination.  Many never read the Bible and never seemed… Read more

P.Z. Myers and I first became acquainted with each other many years ago through a Usenet group called Talk.Origins.  My wife suggested that a couple of those all-but-forgotten articles should be revived and posted on my blog.  OK honey, whatever you say.  One of the two I would like to show is from the 4th of July 2002 that was awarded Post-of-the-Month.  Amusingly, my wife  found out after reading the post  that it had already been referenced just last year,… Read more

I don’t often promote these events, especially when it seems like everyone knows about it already, but at the moment, I just want to think about good things I can look forward to. On Labor Day weekend, August 31st thru September 3rd,  three weeks from now,  I will be in Denver Colorado for the Ascent of Atheism.  I have been invited to join in a panel between Seth Andrews of the Thinking Atheist and Matt Dillahunty of the Atheist Experience. … Read more

By Aron’s wife …Groupthinker, Troll, Person Blinded by Privilege, Leg-Chewer, and especially if you are Thunderf00t (that’s honestly a joke TF).  Do read this if you are tired of reading vitriol, and would genuinely like to know whether our community really feels welcome to women. Sometimes labels are a useful shorthand for having a nominal understanding of a topic you are not familiar with. For example, people frequently refer to me as Asian because of what I look like.
