Happy Birthday Mike Haubrich!

Stephanie asked me and a number of others to pick a post that demonstrates why each of us like Mike Haubrich’s writing style, and why we’re regular readers of his, by way of a birthday present. Apparently he likes to be remembered and praised on his birthday. I personally just prefer a slab of cake …

Think Supes could install WordPress on IIS?

… Doubt it, there’s some things even a deity like the Man of Steel can’t do.

The banned Mormon cartoon

You’ve no doubt seen this already at some point in your intertubes wanderings, but in case you haven’t, here’s a slightly older cartoon explanation of Mormonism. You can tell it’s older by the rotoscoped animation. And yes, this is a very close representation of their true beliefs. My true belief is that Joseph Smith was …

Potholer54′s Golden Crocoduck Awards still going strong

Here’s a whole new batch of nominees for Potholer54′s second annual Golden Crocoduck Awards! For those of you who weren’t already aware, the Award is presented to creationists who fundamentally misunderstand evolution and make spurious arguments based on strawmen and fallacious understanding of the scientific concept. Kent Hovind took last year’s award hands down. Our …

The Vatican is Bullshit

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Vimeo has up the Vatican episode of Penn & Teller’s Bullshit. For now, at least. Watch it while it’s up. Penn & Teller, Bullshit! The Vatican from Brewster on Vimeo. I don’t think there’s terribly much I could add to this, as ever, insightful episode. I especially love …

Who’s dogmatic?

I’ve talked about this a while back, and it’s talked about elsewhere on the blogosphere at great length and to great depth. However, it needs repeating, because among the rank and file of the droning God-worshippers out there, there’s still a certain perma-moderated reader that needs to understand the terms he’s using, as he’s wholly …

Lying for Jesus on Facebook

Here’s a story I’m sure we’ve all heard. It’s obviously invented from whole cloth, but watch it anyway. This was posted on a Facebook cause asking for support for putting Christ back into schools (as though it had any place outside of Sunday school to begin with).

Thunderf00t: “Cosmic Ballet”

Thunderf00t, while not stomping creationists with his mighty feet, is an amateur astronomer in possession of some decidedly not-amateur gear. Check this video out. And here I was pleased with our Galileoscopes and the detail we got out of just looking at the moon in 25x magnification mode.

RCimT: Friday Grab-Bag

Extracts from the first two chapters of Dawkins’ The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution (my Amazon referrer!) are available as links from his website, as though I didn’t already have enough on my reading list. A selected quote: Much of the initial domestication of the dog was selfdomestication, mediated by natural, not …

Ninja Gaiden kicks your ass. Period.

Yeah, that’s pretty much how I remember it.
