In which Matt saves the universe and everything!

This may be the weirdest and yet most enjoyable bit of Atheist Experience-related otaku out there. I can say, I never got a theme song about myself when I was host. Bummer. But then, my name just doesn’t lend itself to good rhythm like Matt’s. I imagine if Possummomma wanted Matt’s babies after seeing the …

M. Night’s new movie is about ID?

That’s the general impression that this reviewer got, although PZ Myers doesn’t precisely agree. It’s a sad thing about M. Night Shyamalan. I really, really enjoyed both 6th Sense and Unbreakable. Then Signs came out, and Jeff Dee — whose tastes I mostly respect a lot — told me he hated it. He was disgusted …

Pascal’s Wager dies and is dead like a dead thing

Thanks to viewer Quinn Martindale for posting this quick snippet from a show this March in which Matt Dillahunty, in two minutes, says everything that needs to be said to destroy the most tired and banal argument for belief still making the rounds. You’d think most believers would have gotten the message that Pascal’s Wager …

On civility and its boundaries

Okay, I want to say a few words to both Martin Wagner and Yomin Postelnik, but the main thrust of the message for both parties is: stop acting like children. Yes, I chatted with Yomin on the phone last night. He tried to get in touch with Martin first, couldn’t find him and then looked …

A very poor choice of response

I have no ironclad proof that the following comes from Yomin Postelnik. But it seems pretty obvious, and I’ll show you my evidence below. And based upon a telephone conversation I had this evening with Kazim, I am willing to bet it most likely has. Someone using the nick “Truthaboutmw” tried to post the following …

But this Friday is the 13th!

Seriously, why would these moonbats waste a perfectly good end-of-the-world nuclear holocaust prediction for Thursday the 12th? Really, they’re just doing it wrong! From the article: Shane Dee, the local district attorney, says there’s no way to describe the group except as a religious cult. Oh, I can think of plenty more colorful descriptions.

Yomin turns up, defends himself by running and hiding

This is hardly surprising. In a cutpaste-heavy comment the length of War and Peace, Yomin Postelnik has only this to say in response to my refutation of his ridiculous Canada Free Press article. It’s the usual “you’ve distorted and misrepresented me, but I don’t have time to debate you” dodge. Your distortions should be quite …

Yomin Postelnik, poster-boy for arrogant theistic fractal wrongness

Jan. 2009 Introduction & Addendum: The following snarkalicious post has since become somewhat legendary in the atheist/creationism/science blogosphere. To cut a long story short, this is the one that led self-styled “conservative columnist” Yomin Postelnik to respond vengefully with bizarre edits to my Wikipedia entry (accusing me of all manner of crimes and misdemeanors, including …

Zondervan blog

Mike writes: Great post! I’ll get this off to Chuck today and hopefully we’ll hear back from him shortly. It depends on his schedule, but I’ll keep you posted as I get word from him. I’ll probably post up Chuck’s reply on the Zondervan blog I’m thinking and link over to your post, etc. Thanks …

What to expect from Chuck Colson

A few weeks ago, I made the following requests of Mike, who has kindly put in the effort to set this up: Allow me to post any comments I have simultaneously to the blog and to him. Always provide a link back to the original post in his reply, so that readers can visit the …
