Wedding mode go!

I’m going to be in wedding mode for the next week. Work needs to be brought to a position where it can coast for the duration of my time off, and I’m going to be far too preoccupied with other stuff to blog regularly, so there’s a chance I won’t be able to post anything …

Jaime Kilstein on gay rights

It intersects heavily with the Religious Right’s fight against the “unnatural” gays, and naturally, his rant intersects heavily with the religions from which these anti-gay philosophies stem.

Science vs Psychosomatic Illness (Science vs Garlic Redux)

I am consistently amazed by how entrenched some people can get in their positions. I’ve had a “cell phones cause cancer” proponent posting on an older post about a local garlic farmer that impeded the erection of a radio tower because he had a gut feeling it would cause mutations. This troll points out they’ve …

Open letter from Dr. Sell to the Sunday Times of London

Remember the study I mentioned last week, where Dr. Aaron Sell had supposedly claimed blondes are “warrior princesses”? Remember how it was mostly fabricated by the media and has yet to be properly corrected in the outlet that initially fabricated the story? Well, Dr. Sell certainly didn’t. Nor have I.

Challenger

I was seven years old when this happened, and I remember when I first saw the video I was absolutely horrified. Watching it again, I still get a catch in my throat. On January 28th, 1986, the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff. During deceleration, the O-rings used to seal the solid-fuel rocket …

“Girls brains are much stupider than mens are…”

“… so they should always listen to us coz WE’RE SMART!” WikiwikiWHAT!? Break it down! I was a pedantic dick to @dELYSEius on Twitter today, teasing her over her choice of words in a tweet immediately after she said she was going to find out the sex of her baby today (and not her baby’s …

Christian Video Games Part 2: Wisdom Tree’s roots

When I left off yesterday, I’d given you an overview of Wisdom Tree’s more horrible offerings. But of course, I’m not done yet — not while they still exist. And they do still exist, you know. And their idea of taking existing video game concepts and grafting Bible quizzes on them is now practically a …

Christian Video Games, part one: Noah’s Ark and Wisdom Tree

A few days ago, Dan J‘s wife @chaosagent23 tweeted thusly: I’m a gamer and I have to ask myself why? Why does this exist? http://bit.ly/6D7XPV #games #fundietarded #nonsense 8:57 PM Jan 25th from TweetDeck She was referring to Bible Navigator X — a downloadable X-Box Live “game” that you can purchase for 400 Microsoft Points …
