Religious choral music

Kazim here. I know I’ve mentioned before that I sing in the Austin Community Chorus, and that we do a lot of religious music. I did a whole show about justified acknowledgment of religion in art and education a while back. The fact is that historically, MOST classical music (along with other forms of art) …

Mid-week schadenfreude

And another lying fundagelical scumbag goes down! Daniel Thompson ran a video store and online video club called Clean Flix, where people could rent “family friendly” versions of R-rated movies that Thompson had personally edited the sex and profanity out of. Thompson had already raised the ire of Hollywood for possible copyright violations in doing …

Nothing but liars

Those of you who were, like me, children of the 80′s might remember that song by Thompson Twins: “Lies lies lies yeah…” Here it is in all its 80′s cheesy retro glory. With a chorus like that, they might as well have been writing about creationists. There are three certainties in this life: death, taxes, …

Shalini just e-mailed

It’s bad like a very bad thing. No details are allowable right now, other than I can assure anyone worried she may have come to physical harm that this is not so. Until such time as she is ready to make her own announcement, we’ll let it lie.

What a Nuckolhead!

There’s this homeschooled scientific illiterate named Dan Nuckols who’s got a blog where he offers dippy anti-science cartoons like this one, amongst other twaddle. Pharyngula readers have been having good fun today knocking the poor dope around, and I, being the mischievous little scamp I am, decided to fuck with him via email. Here’s the …

Johnny B. Goode Stoopid: the Discovery Institute keeps the laffs coming!

They can’t offer any peer-reviewed research, but they can publish indignant tirades against “Darwinism” in various forms, the latest of which is a sure-to-be-laff-a-minute diatribe entitled Darwin Day in America, written by John G. West. West’s main schtick is to attack evolution by Godwinizing it; i.e., blaming it for eugenics and, in turn, the Nazis. …

American Idol beats up defenseless Christian virgin!

Over at Christian website CNSNews.com, they’re all in a kerfuffle over how mean the judges and host of American Idol were to poor Bruce Dickson, a 19-year-old from Bastrop (about half an hour from here) who, when asked to tell something about himself, admitted that he had never even kissed a girl. “What?” Randy Jackson …

Shalini in some kind of trouble?

Shalini Sehkar, whose blog Scientia Natura is full of hilariously foul-mouthed rants against “theistards” (she certainly embraces the “bad cop” role in atheist blogging with gusto), has been locked out — see for yourself — and some commenters over at Larry Moran’s Sandwalk are indicating that some theists have allegedly gone off the deep end …

(flat, deadpan voice) …wow man that’s just like so totally cool

Toddling along on the intarweebs tonight, trying to find some equilibrium between this week’s dose of sad (poor old Heath) and glad (looks like the HD format war is over!), I came upon this enlightening press release about a new website at Nicthus.com, which offers apparel for young Christians “with a message that it is …
