Don’t harsh my narrative with sexyfun!

This is amusing, though darn it, I wish I’d captured screenshots before the inevitable happened. (Some folks say they have done so.) So this youth minister, who does the usual thing of framing moral issues strictly in terms of self-denial and guilt, writes a blog post in which he says, among other funny things, “I …

I don’t know about you…

Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 7.08.37 PM

…but for me, today has been all about the schadenfreude. In Texas, news is that Rick Perry has thrown a petulant snit over last night’s trouncing of SB5, and has called for a new special session on July 2, to try to ram the law through again. Everyone should consider that anti-choicers absolutely took note …

Fighting evil by promoting the good

Addendum 2/Postscript: Kickstarter has (take note, CFI) issued an apology, owned their failings, and put new policies in place to ensure such a project as described herein never darkens their doors again. Still I encourage everyone to get behind Advantageous (and heck, even my little thing, if you like). Original post begins: In case you’re …

Open thread on episode #817 with Russell and Martin: Grace, love and mercy edition

Screen Shot 2013-06-09 at 1.52.11 PM

Edit: On Sunday’s show we spoke with philosopher and blogger Dan Fincke, who discusses the concept of secular objective morality in these posts:  http://www.patheos.com/blogs/camelswithhammers/tag/leah-libresco/. Additionally, Martin referenced some YouTube videos debunking claims of advanced scientific information in the Koran. Here is the promised link to the YouTube channel. Martin  It’s Martin (dat’s me!) and Russell fielding the hordes today, …

Open thread on episode #813

So today it was Russell and Matt, taking, among others, a call from a repeat doof who apparently thinks knowledge works by simple assertion. Oh well…as usual, below is where you say the things you think.

How the Problem of Evil uncloaks Christianity’s total moral bankruptcy

"Happy to help, God! I hope that poor young man has learned a valuable lesson! Anything else I can help with once I stop bleeding?"

I don’t think Christians are evil. But the Christian God is evil, and belief in him runs the risk of non-evil people embracing evil through lazy moral and intellectual concessions to things that do not deserve to be conceded. And the Problem of Evil settles it. The PoE came up on yesterday’s show, and in …

Open thread on episode #812

Today, Jeff and Martin (that’s me!) did the show as host and co-host for the first time in at least ten years! It was an absolute blast, we had a number of very good calls, and the technical glitches that occurred — no opening music or background graphic — kind of made the whole affair …

Those vicious, vicious atheists!


Aww, Ken Ham has his tighty whities in a twist. You know what I have to say to that? So I suppose you’ve all seen that mind-numbingly horrific and awful 4th grade Christian “science quiz” that’s been making the rounds on Facebook? The one that’s totally real, and that makes anyone operating at higher than …
