Chocolate is the reason for the season!

Okay, I know everyone is still looking for that final TAM report. I am working on it (amazing how, when you return from a vacation, life just…slams you back into a routine). But this, I felt, was too good to pass up. If there’s one thing I dearly, dearly love, it’s getting the “Action Alert” …

Poor, Tragic Yahweh

Christians often have the impression that atheists somehow hate Yahweh, the God of the Bible. We don’t, and we can’t, because we do not believe there are any gods to hate, even if we wanted to hate them. Actually, in a sympathetic way, I find the character of Yahweh quite likable. Like most of the …

Welcome, Pharyngulites!

Due to another link from PZ to my latest TAM 5 posting, yesterday was this blog’s best day ever. Today is already about twice what we usually get in daily uniques, and it’s only 9:15 in the morning! Hope all of you fellow godless heathens stopping by from Pharyngula like what you see, and see …

Facing 10 years as Bubba’s Bitch, Hovind loses mind

This is just too funny. Hovind’s latest too-good-to-pass-up offer for the government: let me go and I’ll stop suing you. Oooo! Got ‘em on the ropes there, Kent baby. This editorial lays the smackdown on this cretin. “You dishonor your fellow Americans” by dodging a fair share of taxes, [Judge Casey] Rodgers said. She sentenced …

“The sanctity of life is written in the life of all men and women…”

…says a sleazy, hypocritical, lying motherfucker who is responsible for launching an illegal war under false pretenses that has killed around 55,000 men, women and children in the 3½ years since it was begun. Go pander to that Christian Right base, asshole. [/satisfying foul mothed rant]

TAM 5: Saturday coverage, part 1 (before lunch)

As mentioned before, Saturday was a much improved day over Friday, not only because the tech troubles had mostly been solved, but in that the presenters were much more entertaining, though no less substantive than Friday’s. Later on I heard a story I couldn’t prove, to the effect that the possible reason for Friday’s nonstop …

TAM 5: Saturday a much better day!

The many technical glitches that marred even the best speakers’ presentations yesterday seemed to have been mostly smoothed over and dealt with. Today was, overall, a much more satisfying day. Even the lunch was better: hot food instead of cold cut sandwiches. Consistently funny, engaging, and sometimes contentious, each speaker had a lot to offer. …

TAM 5: Friday afternoon speakers

The general opinion so far of my friends Thad and Stacie Engeling (the latter of whom is Ms. November in the 2007 Skepchick Calendar, by the way) is that TAM 5 has so far not been as good as TAM 4. But a lot of this is probably due to the fact that Friday afternoon’s …

TAM 5: Friday morning speakers Shermer & Scott

Well, remember what I said last night about being wiped out and going to bed? Wrong! I realized that if I go to Vegas for an awesome conference and crash early, then damn it all, I haven’t been to Vegas for an awesome conference. And so I mustered up my second wind, went downstairs, and …
