Rejection of Some Creationism Still Doesn’t Make Your View Right

It’s getting closer to the Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham debate and creationists are girding their loins for what they think is yet another assault on religion/attempt to do science. But there is a schism between the Intelligent Designers and the Young Earthers with what’s right and what’s wrong. Which is like arguing over which …

An Old Response to Russel Glasser Regarding Vaccinations

Hi Avicenna, great article. I’d just like to ask a question because this is definitely an area where I could stand to bone up on my technique. “There is an absolute hand grenade of question that I have found turns the vaccination debate into an utter rout. How does the Immune System Function?” Would you …

It’s Not Racist, it’s Trolling! Ignore them!

If you ignore them, they will go away.  And racism won’t affect you! That’s what I was basically told when I reported a 45 minute tirade where I was forced to play a game with racists who kept up a wall of abuse after I spoke out against their racism. Not the genteel racism of …

So Why Do Atheists Form Communities?

It’s simple. Atheists form groups because they want to meet other people who they can discuss their opinions with.

Dear Atheists/Dear Republicans

This came from atheists, this was being bandied around as a “see, even the GOP mocks the people who call others racist”. It’s simple. Black and Asian racists do exist. However they are not in power. You cannot hold Black racism in Africa or racism in Asia as a reason for White racism in the …

Abortion Myths Debunked

Christian Post’s pro-life brigade were out in force over the week. The problem with such reporting is that it’s an outright lie. And the best lies told are the ones where the teller believes in the same lie. So me saying “beware the dinner witch! She will eat you if you don’t eat your broccoli” is …

Short Hair Blues

There is an article going about about short hair. I started going bald young, I don’t know why, the doctors suggested it was due to injuries sustained when younger. And for a long time it was a terrible thing. I tried everything. Rogaine to everyone’s natural medicine suggestions. Until finally I had to shave my …

Humble Bundle – Audiobook Edition

I know I am fundraising for my own charity at the moment, but I figured many of you would not have read Salman Rushdie’s “infamous” work that lead to his fatwa. So why not check it out on the Humble Bundle, there are other books and the average is a low low sum of just …
