Lawrence Krauss talking about nothing.

I have been in the audience a few times listening to this man explain nothing. In one speech, he explained nothing four times, because [he said] the subject tends to confuse the laity, and sometimes even confuses other scientists. When he said that, my son and I looked at each other said quite confidently that …

Actually Ken Ham: It’s Great to be an Ape

I was invited by Dallas’s Fellowship of Freethought to speak about creationism with the Mister Ra. Aron spoke about his disappointment at Ham’s response about wisdom teeth not being proof of anything┬áthat contradicts the biblical account of Genesis.

Support Senator Davis’s Filibuster against Texas SB 5: restricting women’s access to abortion.

Go Wendy!

It is live streaming now, and she is in trouble. The Texas Senate is deciding if she broke the rules by accepting a back brace from a colleague. If she survives this ruling, she has until midnight to block the vote on SB5. It will most likely give her 2 warnings and she has 3 …

a charity to improve Ireland’s mental health

Don’t make jokes. I’ve met most of the guest hosts in person. Until recently, if I wanted to help promote something like this I would feature it on my channel. But YouTube has made so many ‘improvements’ that my channel barely exists anymore. It certainly can’t be used to feature anyone else’s videos on occasion. …

Hammering Ham

You know, I’m starting to doubt whether Ken Ham was ever willing to enter into the debate that he said he wanted. He made some plainly false criticisms of my wife, and I posted some corrections below. Shortly after I uploaded this video, I saw a comment that someone had posted it to Ken Ham’s …

Dennett’s prediction

When I listened to Daniel Dennett give this presentation live, I remember thinking that I wanted to take a handful of his comments and statistics, and put them to music. And while that might still have worked, when I listen to my recording of that speech now, I think it needs to be a bit …

TrueEmpiricism (irony alert)

As Darwin once said, “ignorance more often begets confidence than does knowledge“. Someone demonstrating Dunning-Kruger syndrome keeps sending me private messages wherein he speaks without knowledge very confidently. I don’t even have time just to read all my emails anymore. I certainly can’t take the time to personally educate every internet noob who thinks he …

Atheist goodwill not good enough for some Oklahomans

In the wreckage left behind by recent tornadoes, Oklahoma atheist Rhonda Dorle sought to help her neighbors salvage what they could from what the tornado left behind. She and other atheists volunteered their time, and worked side by side with others regardless of what they believed or didn’t. Unfortunately when it was revealed that they …

Here come the loonies

So now that Ken Ham, president of answersingenesis has acknowledged me, the most extreme whackos on the web are suddenly aware of me too. For example, Conspiracy News accuses me of being a puppet of the Illuminati, which in turn is allegedly controlled by Satan. I find this amusing since neither of those entities apparently …
