I Thought I Saw An Atheist

P-Zed reports that The Atheists Are Coming! I thought I saw an atheist, once, walking down the street.I checked for horns, I checked for tail, I checked for cloven feet;Began to tremble frightfully—my heart was in my throat—Then sighed in happy recognition, for ‘twas but a goat. I thought I saw an atheist, down near …

My Enemy’s Enemy…?

As reported on Pharyngula, a common prescientific mythology is making strange bedfellows these days. This time, the Turkish Islamic anti-Darwin movement is aided and abetted by American fundamentalist Christian conservatives. No, really. Yeah, I had to read it twice, too. Well, it’s not like that’s an area of the world where Christians and Muslims have …

A Book Review

I had completely forgotten about this little verse, a comment on PZed’s review of Ken Ham’s book on Darwin’s alleged racism.

Love, Love, Love…

An interesting little post, over on Pharyngula; apparently some artist (not gonna link–he likes it when you link) has claimed that atheists, as far as he can tell, do not believe in love. News to me, of course, and I am certain it would surprise anyone who knew me. I would have thought that love …
