More religious legislation from Indiana

Pushing creationism into science classrooms wasn’t enough, so now there’s legislation to require the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer at the beginning of each school day. Yes, public school. It’s all in Senate Bill 251, which states: 4.6. (a) In order that each student recognize the importance of spiritual development in establishing character and becoming …

If I believed in past lives…

I would say that Pixel was a dog in her previous one. As proof, I present a video of her fetching her favorite toy: The part where I say “Ow” is where she decided to dig her claws into my leg before leaping off. Oh kitties.

Congratulations, Jessica! This is a great win for church-state separation and student activism. Hemant Mehta has the full story is taking donations for a college scholarship fund for Jessica. Jessica, I know you’ll continue to get a lot of crap from your classmates, but know you do have friends out there. And that high school …

The matriarchy is coming for your video games

Video games are no longer safe from our lady-clutches! Why, they’re starting to have female characters in them that aren’t totally worthless or in need of saving! And this has a lot of MRAs worried: I call bullshit on this subject. Video games are the last place for guys to hang out and now women …

The snowpocalypse is nigh!

Seattle’s weather report for the weekend: The system will develop into spotty snow showers down at sea level Sunday into Monday. Depending on where you are, accumulations could be anywhere from a trace to several inches. OH GOD. TRACE TO SEVERAL INCHES? WHY AM I ON THE INTERNET I NEED TO GO BUY WATER AND …

The kitty castle

IMG_0832

Because you guys were so kind with your support in my previous post, I decided I would share one of the Jennifer McCreight Movement’s events with you. My roommate got our kitten Pixel a kitty castle: She kind of likes it. I’m a little wary that it puts her at eye level with me. If …

Drama

I have given up on the atheist and skeptical movements, and am starting a new one – the Jennifer McCreight Movement. The headquarters will be my bedroom (not the living room, which is shared with the Roommate Movement). The official dress will be whatever the fuck I feel like. Events will be held every night, …

Another “End of the World” party to put on your calendar

Save the date: May 27, 2012. This particular apocalyptic prediction is brought to you by former Worldwide Church of God preacher Ronald Weinland. He was gracious enough to list a number of events that will occur before this date, which can be used to potentially falsify his hypothesis, such as: The collapse of the United States …

Indiana DEFINITELY isn’t perfect

At least Seattle limits its scientific ignorance to a piece of bad journalism. Indiana has anti-evolution legislation bubbling up: Senate Bill 89, prefiled in the Indiana Senate and referred to the Committee on Education and Career Development, would, if enacted, amend the Indiana Code to provide that “[t]he governing body of a school corporation may …

Seattle isn’t perfect

As much as I agree with the hilarious post about how “Seattle is objectively superior to the place you grew up,” I have to admit it’s not perfect. Like our main news station running a terrible piece on how Arizona sandstones prove Noah’s flood. Thanks for the uncritical support of young earth creationists, KOMO! I …
