I order you to buy this amazing CD

For years now, Negativland have been a collective of audio pranksters whose electronic, sample-laden musical constructs have taken the notion of satire into heretofore unexplored realms. Occasionally they’ve even gotten into legal hot water, at one point being sued by no less than U2. Among atheists, they may best be known for the outrageous “Christianity …

Another day, another gay evangelical

First Haggard, now Paul Barnes, until yesterday pastor of the 2100-member Grace Chapel in Denver. Barnes confessed to fundagelical fudge-packin’ and resigned his post, after — get this — an anonymous phone call from a person who heard someone was threatening to go public with the names of Barnes and other evangelical leaders who engaged …

Film producers the Weinsteins bring a dirty bomb to the War on Christmas

Over at my film blog, Mr. Wagner’s Final Cut, I have a snarky little post in which I express much amusement at the way Bob and Harvey Weinstein, the moguls formerly of Miramax and now releasing as The Weinstein Group, announced they were launching a new company to distribute “faith-based” films, only to follow it …

Well, this is disappointing. And I try so hard!

How evil are you? It must be because I didn’t choose to answer more of the questions with “Canada”.

Today on the show

It’s my turn to co-host this afternoon, but I just clawed my way out of my first year of grad school, and as a result I’m in no mood to research an entire new topic today. I want to throw out a brief complaint about how boring the new Catholic radio station in town is, …

Butterflies, science, and ID

There’s an interesting post over at The Scientist in which Jack Woodall, billed as “director of the Nucleus for the Investigation of Emerging Infectious Diseases in the Institute of Medical Biochemistry at Brazil’s Federal University of Rio de Janeiro,” (pause for breath) uses the example of butterfly development and human-caused extinction patterns to poke holes …

We’re the U2 of atheism!

In addition to Mojoey’s big ol’ atheist blogroll, we are proud to be added to The Best of Net Atheism, one of those Top-10 or Top-20 or Top-50 type sites where the more click-throughs you send them, the higher you jump on the charts, and the more people click back to you to check you …

Snake oil on a plane! Hinn sleaze flying higher than ever.

Benny’s just bought God a new Gulfstream jet, and he wants his flock of dupes to pay for it. Ay-mayzing. Check the transparently manipulative language in the sales pitch here and boggle that anyone’s brain could be so calcified as to buy it. …Now we must pay the remainder of the down payment, and I …

Iron Chariots is a counter-apologetics wiki, aiming to be the definitive collection of arguments used by atheists. If you’re inclined …

How do you spell “scumsucking filth”? B-E-N-N-Y H-I-N-N.

Yes, yes, we all know what a vile charlatan this clownish “faith healer” is. But to see what this son of a bitch does with your own eyes, to see how cold-bloodedly he exploits the hope of the truly desperate and pathetic while whooping it up in $10 million mansions and $4000-a-night hotel suites, just …
