Secular Pro-Life Same Old Scare Tactics

If I were to tell you that a purportedly secular anti-abortion group was engaging in the very same fear mongering and harassment of abortion providers that the largely Christian dominated pro-life groups do; would you be surprised? The True Pooka’s final report on Secular Pro-Life’s tactics is posted. In addition to the other tactics Pooka documented, the group …

What really matters…The So-Called Secular Arguments Against Choice

That poster could just as easily be posted because the Bible tells me so...

It is often difficult and awkward to move disagreements forward to where they become productive in the insular, organized atheist community. Especially for a family that is as actively involved as the Ra family, because a lot of times we know and like and often respect the people involved on a personal level. And to …

Say it ain’t so Bill Nye! Bill Nye debates Ken Ham.

creation-museum

So Ken Ham won’t debate Aron Ra and PZ Myers because… reasons! He complained that the debate invitation was rude, but look how rude he was to Bill Nye… “Bill Nye still doesn’t understand the difference between historical science and observational science — so he may be known as ‘Bill Nye the science guy’ — …

Asian Cultural Sensitivity 101: Why is Katy Perry’s “Geisha” performance considered racist?

perry geisha

I know no one asked me to weigh in on this, but what the heck. I am the resident East Eurasian here. Seriously though my social media is awash in East Asian outrage and also cultural insensitivity over Perry’s performance yesterday at the AMAs dressed in modified,sexy geisha apparel. There are a number of comments …

Tips on Evangelizing Evolution from Aron Ra

Ray Comfort noticed that a lot of atheists visited his Facebook page, and it occurred to him that he could train other Christians to witness to the “unsaved”. “The average Christian can’t stand on a soapbox at a university and preach, but he or she can now engage the unsaved and have their comment read …

Finding courage to keep the darkness of ignorance at bay Part I

"Dawn take you all, and be stone to you!"

While there may be places on Earth that equal the darkness of Mordor of Middle Earth in terms of the very real evil of ignorance more than Texas this year; that won’t be from a lack of effort on the part of the Texas Legislature. Secularists here are already beleaguered trying to stamp out the encroachments …

The Foundational Oft-Repeated Fallacies of Sexism Deniers

discworld

9/11 Truthers, Moon Landing Deniers,  Holocaust Deniers, Evolution Deniers, Creationism… It seems controversial ideas are polarizing and can generate extreme views.  Some ideas like the fact that the Earth is spheroid can even generate full-blown conspiracy theories.

No saved recording of the Bob Dutko debate

Ankhor

In my debate with Bob Dutko, he criticized me for not debating the existence of God -which was my choice of topics from the selection he gave.  I wish we had been able to talk about that, but instead he wasted most of that hour burning and re-building his strawman of my position while ignoring …

Aron Ra vs Bob Dutko – ADDENDUM

While I was on the Bob Dutko show, he made several claims purportedly supported by peer-reviewed science.  It’s a great tactic in any format where such claims cannot be evaluated on-the-fly.  This allows superstitious showmen to misrepresent some comment in the abstract of a peer-reviewed paper such that will make creationists feel as though they …
