Jim Garlow: Blacks saved Christians from gay bondage

Someone explain to me how this loon would be forced into gay bondage if gays are allowed to marry? I would imagine gay marriage only affects you if you’re gay and want to be married. No gay marriage law I’ve ever seen would force straight folks into participating in bondage games with same-sex partners. You …

God’s Wife Asherah

I’ve been having a very busy, very work-filled week, and I expect it will continue until I stomp out some odd bugs with our new mail implementation. Despite all this totally unbalanced work/life balance, I saw this article recently on Time: Fertility Goddess Asherah: Was ‘God’s Wife’ Edited Out of the Bible? This isn’t the …

How to truly unify mankind

Via Thunderf00t, an excellent video about the true heights to which humans can aspire. The spinning Jupiter with all the Jovian moons at ~2:28 is amazing. You can duplicate it on your computer if you’re so inclined, by getting a copy of Celestia, an open-source space simulator and beyond any shadow of a doubt the …

How humans will discover alien life

Finally, a news article with “alien life” in the headline that gets it right — top to bottom, in every detail, including the headline (as long as you also read the article). Wonderful. Of course, it’s an opinion piece on the New York Times, but still, I have to give Ray Jayawardhana a hearty round …

Wherein my subconscious brain invents a religion

I had a very strange dream last night. It was strange enough that I remembered it, which is one thing, but also enough so that I felt the need to run to my computer and write it all down. Because humans have a tendency when describing dreams to attempt to force them to conform with …

Mr. Rogers: we assert evilness, you decide!

You ever wonder if there was some assertion that was so beyond the pale ludicrous that nobody could, in all seriousness, say it on the Fox News channel? I think I found it. Note the heavy use of the prophylactic question mark. The video may be a bit out of sync with the audio, or …

O’Donnell on Glenn Beck’s impoverished religious knowledge

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Well done, O’Donnell. I was skeptical of you when you were given your own show, having only seen you as an occasional replacement for Keith Olbermann, but you just won a fan in me.

Presuppositional apologetics: still intellectually bereft

Our ally on the other side of the Atlantic, Paul Baird of Patient and Persistant, took on countryman Christian Sye Tenbruggencate (I’m sure you know him — he made this site!) on Premier Christian Radio a few months ago, and has returned for another joust. Having had a chance to take on Tenbruggencate once in …

The statistics on deaths related to nuclear power generation are wrong.

Or at the very least, extraordinarily misleading. There’s a really good reason I call Stephanie Zvan “Our Lady of Perpetual Win”. Pretty much every time the woman sits at her keyboard, she writes something great, and usually in a much more timely and topical fashion than I ever manage. (When’s the last time I wrote …
