Don’t Stop Reporting II

I didn’t really do a blog post celebrating a year of A Million Gods, but today’s events kind of reminded me of when I started. Today Marie Colvin and Remie Ochlik were killed in Homs as part of the Bashar Al-Assad Government’s offensive on the Syrian people. It is rumoured that they were killed as …

Cults and You

I spent most of the weekend reading the very lovely Suzanne Schumacher’s blog about leaving a cult. The cult is quite famous as the Follower’s of Christ. They were involved in a bunch of people refusing medical care for their children and praying instead. I advocate reading Does Air Exist, but urge readers to be respectful. …

The Ninth Commandment

It amazes me how easily some christians breaks the commandments while claiming to be good. I have no qualms about someone who isn’t a “holier than thou” christian not following the more stupid rules of christianity. I have no issues with them. They realise that their faith isn’t perfect and adapt it to fit the …

I disagree with JT Eberhard – Valentine’s day is actually kind of fun

I actually disagree that Valentine’s Day sucks. I quite like it, it’s a silly day where you are encouraged to be silly and romantic. You don’t need that excuse on other days but sometimes it’s nice to be part of the crowd.  Look, days like Christmas, Valentine’s Day and all the other days are just …

Valentine’s Day Massacre: Indiana’s Drones and the Temple of Dumb

Why are we even discussing whether religion and science should be taught on the same footing in a classroom? It is 2012, and we have touched the moon, made smallpox extinct, created the internet and routinely chose to hurl ourselves through the air in metal cylinders powered by dead monsters. And somehow despite all this technology …

Valentine’s Day Massacre : Secularism denies History and Destroys Identity

Hello whine whine whine? I would like to call a Waaahmbulance for Tim Stanley. The argument he makes is one made by racists and morons across the fair isle I like to call as home. And it can be summarised as…. “My privilege! How dare you stop me from exercising my right to be privileged! …

Back to the Grind

So I am done with exams (finally!) and can get back to regular posts and the like. And this seems like a good time to discuss the whole abortion issue that has raised it’s ugly head. See the problem with abortion is that it’s not a good thing. None of us like abortions, even the …

It Gets Better – Do Something Good

Rolling Stone carries an article about the war on teenagers who merely belong to the GLBT minority and it is heart rending to read. Show your support. Don’t just say that “it will get better in some nebulous future”, try and make it change now. Be the change you want to be. Don’t let people suffer …

Clearly you are a moron if you think medicine works anything like this.

Some people have some very strange ideas on what we do in the medical field. It’s quite strange that people explicitly spread such utter bullshit and indeed believe such nonsense. I write this article in response to an anti-vaccine comment that medicine is close minded because it matches these ideas. And I figured I should break …
