A headline to warm your heart

Some of you have probably already seen this CNN article, with the eye-catching headline “America becoming less Christian, survey finds”. Even more full of awesome is the lead. America is a less Christian nation than it was 20 years ago, and Christianity is not losing out to other religions, but primarily to a rejection of …

Does the term “atheist evangelism” acknowledge that atheism is a religion?

Dale writes: Russell, I am 40 years an atheist and have countless communications with theists. The blogoshere has opened a deversified line of communications with theists. I have just watched your lecture series on You Tube and thoroughly enjoyed them. I am presently debating a theist that is trying to perpetuate the myth that atheism …

Shirts ship Friday the 13th

A quick note about the AXP T-shirts (see sidebar), which will at last be ready this Friday. If there’s one thing cooler than having two months in a row with a Friday the 13th in them, it’s that you get AXP shirts into the bargain. The initial print run is sold out. But a second …

Stem cell research at last

I’m pleased, as is anyone in the pro-science camp, at Obama’s expected reversal of Bush’s ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research.

A retrospective on the millenium bug

I wrote a post on my other blog looking back at Y2K.  While it is still primarily a blog about software engineering, a lot of the post is repeating and expanding on some things I said about Gary North in my show about Dominionism last year.  Besides, you can never have too much making fun …

Do Moderate Christians Enable Fundamentalist Agendas?

I have a theist friend who thinks I’m too quick to blame some of the world’s ills on religion. After all, he was raised in religion. He believes in god, and he doesn’t care if anyone else does or not. He isn’t trying to force it onto anyone else. He isn’t writing to legislators to …

Fireproof

Here’s another Kirk Cameron movie that I’ll never have to watch now. Thanks, Everything Else Atheist! After a heroic rescue and doctor drama, Cameron’s at home again, on the Internet looking at boats, an established hobby. An ad pops up – “wanna see?

Regarding Ray Comfort, the World’s Stupidest Christian™

Ray Comfort, the World’s Stupidest Christian™, is the world’s stupidest Christian. When you consider the competition, that’s quite a feat. Ray’s degree of stupidity is truly stunning to behold. It’s so monumental it serves as a kind of strange attractor towards which other Christians, not necessarily as stupid as Ray but not especially smart either, …
