I love Christian “love”!

This is frickin’ awesome! There’s a service online at christiannewswire.com where they allow any faith-head lunatic to post a press release. Only on a site such as this would something this hilarious be printed with a straight face. This is from some frootloop named Pastor Wiley Drake, and while it sounds exactly like the sort …

So much hate. So much fear. So many lies.

One of the stupider arguments from Ray Comfort, an already pitifully stupid evangelist as it is, is the “have you ever lied?” argument, which Comfort fancies is a slamdunk takedown of non-Christians and their imagined lack of moral fiber. The deep, deep irony of this is that no one lies like a fundamentalist Christian. Lying …

Atheist Experience #500-501 double feature

Okay, we’re still running — cripes — three months behind on posting the TV shows. But so what? They’re always entertaining no matter when you watch ‘em. I see that audio is still an issue with the fine vintage-’80s technology available at Austin Access. It’s pretty hard to hear anyone in #500. Things are a …

A late summer makeover

Got bored, thought I’d change up the look. A little easier and more pleasant to read, I think.

A grotesque memorial

My best friend’s mother died last Monday, and the memorial service was today. During the past week it’s been a pleasure for me to be there for her, just being supportive, and driving her the 40 minutes from Austin (a couple of times actually) to Seguin to be with her family. My friend isn’t Christian, …

And I thought I was the world’s most stubborn procrastinator!

Megablogger and science fiction writer John Scalzi demonstrates once again that he will think of anything, and I do mean anything, to avoid having to meet a writing deadline. Here’s an impromptu home movie (in ToyVision!) mocking Ken Ham’s belief, enshrined in his moronic Creation “Museum”, that dinosaurs co-existed with people and that the fearsome …

Dan McLeroy’s true designer colors

Those of us who have been in the front lines of the fight to keep fundamentalism from poisoning science education in Texas have long known Dan McLeroy, recently appointed by our Ken-doll governor Rick Perry to head the Texas State Board of Education, has been a Christian Right tool. (And only in a state where …

No need to think for yourself

I just finished watching this video, which shows the responses of anti-choice demonstrators in Libertyville, Illinois when asked what sort of punishment women should receive if they had an abortion after abortions became illegal. Go watch it…I’ll wait… The responses speak for themselves. I don’t want to get into the specifics about abortion (though I’ll …

New rule: Integrity and honesty required

As fundamentalists seem to love the way online anonymity enables juvenile trolling, we have yet another new rule here. No anonymous comments. This will immediately separate the (honest) men from the (dishonest) boys, the latter of whom will promptly whine and snivel over how this proves we’re too chicken to allow dissenting views to appear …

If you’re going to try a Socratic dialogue, make sure you know what you’re doing

Anontroll is up to his usual tricks in this comment thread. His latest attempt to refute me takes the form of one of the most creative straw man arguments I’ve seen here: a faux Socratic dialogue which amounts to the usual dishonest Christian apologist’s stunt of “I will simply tell my opponent what his position …
