Democrats wake up and take the SBOE debacle seriously

The first step in de-moronizing the Texas State Board of Education has begun. In past years the Democrats have ill-advisedly ignored the SBOE, preferring more high-profile races in Texas politics. But with the current board overrun by anti-science creationist wackaloons who are turning the entire state into fodder for late-night comedians, the Dems are finally …

Looks like all that time I spent playing Left 4 Dead may pay off

It would seem that zombies have infested the streets of Austin. Somebody fetch me my auto-shotgun and some pain pills.

Superior Christian morality!

Ted Haggard’s back in the news. This time, it’s been revealed that his megachurch New Life knew full well of Haggard’s homosexual proclivities, and that, in addition to the gay drug-dealing male prostitute situation, they paid a 20-year-old church volunteer a bunch of hush money to keep him from telling anyone about his own assignations …

Smackdown of a creationist lecture

The Everything Else Atheist (disclosure: friend of mine, loyal AE viewer, and newbie blogger) just spent an evening tormenting herself by attending a lecture by “Director of Christian Apologetics” Craig J. Hazen. The talk turned out to be as awful as you could hope, but it wasn’t a total loss, as we get to enjoy …

Federal judge to Kevin Trudeau: Grab your ankles, bitch!

This isn’t specifically atheisty, but it gives me a big 3S (skeptical schadenfreude squee) all the same. From the “Sometimes the Good Guys Win” file: A federal judge has ordered infomercial marketer Kevin Trudeau to pay more than $37 million for violating a 2004 stipulated order by misrepresenting the content of his book, “The Weight …

In our last episode, Robin had discovered the location of the secret underground lab where Commissioner Gordon has been held prisoner. Meanwhile, Woodstock played an elaborate prank on Snoopy involving Linus’s security blanket, some Elmer’s Glue, and a feather pillow, and Andy and Opie had finally found Barney Fife passed out at the fishing hole …

Poor, poor, poor, poor, poor little Ray

Ray Comfort. The Uwe Boll of Christian apologetics. You know, it’d be pretty easy to do a Ray Comfort Drinking Game. Just take a shot at any straw-man attack on atheists, moronic canard about evolution… On second thought, alcohol poisoning within minutes might be a real hazard. Better not. Still, he’s worth a laugh, poor …

America Hating Theocrats Pray For Failure

Hey everybody, let’s all pray for the failure of the new president! Wait, you silly fundie, haven’t you heard that it is treasonous to criticize a sitting president in a time of war? OOOOOHHHHH! I’ve been waiting to say that for a long time. …But seriously, folks, I’d like to say a few words about …

Today makes me go wOOt

Hey gang. Did you hear? George W. Bush is not the president any more! He’s gone! Out! Everybody exhale. That frackin’ miserable useless failure has joined the expanding ranks of our nation’s many unemployed! We have a new guy. I like him. I have high, but realistic hopes for him. I do think there has …

Answering apologists’ questions, part 1

A fellow emailed the TV show address with this forwarded list of questions that apologists have for atheists, taken from Lee Strobel’s site. What is surprising is how simplistic and banal many the questions are (most of them being variations of “if God didn’t create us, who/what did?”). Only one question is any good, and …
