Flintstones Archaeology

My presentation to the Humanists of Houston, 2013/02/16, recorded by Steve Jordan and Vic Wang. Most of my references came from this creationist website: http://www.genesispark.com/ I probably should have mentioned here how there was never any unfossilized original biological material, and certainly no undecomposed blood cells confirmed found in any non-avian dinosaurs.  If anyone wants …

Why did I think I could watch this video about Fish Tongue Eating Isopods?

Showing Solidarity with Black Nonbelievers when you aren’t Black

This billboard placed in a historically black section of Dallas earned Alix much scorn. It started a dialogue about how atheists don't really do good things like the neighborhood churches. In response to a pastor's challenge Alix and friends picked greens for the needy.

Last weekend, Aron and I went to a presentation about the history of Black Freethought by Alix Jules hosted by Houston Oasis.  Right now the Houston Atheists boast the largest group of freethinkers in Texas with a population of 2,078. Salute! We happen to know Alix from being members of DFW’s Fellowship of Freethought the largest group …

Texas’ cryptozoology conferences

The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy is sponsoring an all day event -from 9:00am to 7:00pm Saturday March 16th at the Fort Worth Convention Center.  Not kidding. As a former sasquatch myself, (Luna, New Mexico 1988) I’m really surprised that I wasn’t asked to speak at this convention.  Especially since there really haven’t been that many …

If he’s serious, he’s seriously insane

Is it merely an irrational assumption?  Or a deeply disturbing delusion? How would you reason with this guy?  Could you? I can’t help but imagine a waterphone playing in the background as he whispers. I often wonder about people like this. Did his religion drive him crazy? Or is he religious because he’s already crazy?

Pope Palpatine

darkside

I’m gonna miss the old sith lord.  He was the best pope atheists could hope for. He started out as a Hitler youth actually wearing a Nazi uniform.  As a Cardinal, he famously conspired to conceal sex crimes against children for the sake of the church.  As pope, he addressed an audience in an AIDS …

another Godless documentary

This is not the same ‘Godless’ as the documentary made by Staise Gonzalez.  It’s a different piece with the same name. A couple years ago, a Canadian film crew came to record our Fellowship of Free Thought meeting for a documentary on atheists.  We skipped Skepticon that year to be involved.  I didn’t feel it …
