True or False? Helpful or Harmful? The Two Different Arguments About Religion

Friday Cat Blogging on Saturday: Catfish Doing Yoga On the Dryer

And now, a cute picture of my cat. Catfish has lately taken to sleeping on the dryer on sunny days, where she relaxes in some very entertaining poses. This is one of them. I love the front paw draped over the back legs.

Commenting Problems

Typepad is having sporadic problems with commenting on their blogs, including this one. Occasionally, for no apparent reason, people are posting comments that are showing up in the “Recent Comments” list (as well as in my own blog management software), but that aren’t actually appearing in the comments themselves.

Right Wing Hypocrisy Part Two: The Scary Black Men Made Me Do It!

This piece was originally published on the Blowfish Blog. Bob Allen was just convicted last week of soliciting a sex act in a park bathroom, so now seems like a good time to reprint this story.

Godless is the New Black: Is Atheism Just a Trend?

“This atheism thing is just a trend.” “I’m so bored with this atheism fad.” “You’re just calling yourself an atheist because it’s cool right now, and everyone else is doing it.” “Oh boy, another hanger-on to the (Dawkins/ Hitchens/ whoever) bandwagon.” (I was particularly entertained when a recent commenter in this blog accused me of …
