On the Other Hand, I have Good News…

…No, I didn’t save a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico. But I found this gold nugget in my inbox: Your dad is going to vote for Obama. Can you believe it? If he gets nominated that is who he will vote for. If he doesn’t, then he will vote …

Fuck the Courtiers and Their Admirers

I’m tired, I’m behind in my work, and I’m getting cranky, so this is going to be a quickie. I am godsdamned motherfucking sick and bloody tired of this ridiculous idea that religious ideas are somehow beyond critical thought and criticism. The moment an advocate of a religious idea tells me I should live by …

Rule #1 for a Christian dealing with atheists: do not get into a philosophical pissing match unless you really like wet trouser legs. Yesterday, I posted the outrageous gauntlet Pastor Dean threw down in an attempt to prove that his special version of Christianity was the only valid worldview. I asked Woozle to be my …

Today’s opining on the public discourse. From the It’s Only Appeasement if a Democrat Proposes It Department: Sometime in the next few weeks, a special envoy of President Bush plans to meet with Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, whose government sheltered Osama bin Laden and pursued a scorched-earth policy in southern Sudan that resulted in …

I’m Such a Geek

I just pre-ordered Batman and Philosophy: Dark Knight of the Soul. I own Lord of the Rings and Philosophy. One entire wall of my room is filled with Sandman stuff. Yep. I’m a geek. Just so’s you know. Share your geeky goodness with me. Bonus points to whoever knows where this Parthian shot comes from: …

Exactly So

One more, and then we’re done with the Christians vs. Atheists: FIGHT! theme for a bit. I just want to point out a few comments that illustrate beautifully what I’m saying.
