But…but…is it Biblical?

Answers in Genesis is so fiercely committed to the idea of taking every jot and tittle of the bible as strictly literal that they, for instance, argue that dinosaurs had to be on Noah’s big boat because the Bible uses the word “all” to describe the creatures that were brought on board. But otherwise…well, raving …

Following up on last night’s Atheism+ discussion

So we had this hangout last night to talk about various things, including Atheism+, and while it was fun and interesting, I don’t think we really answered the questions lurking in everyone’s heads: we wandered about a bit too much. If I were to do it again, I think I’d want to have the panel …

Anti-Caturday post

The word for the day is PINK. Pink is a soft, non-threatening color associated with girls…and is therefore harmless and pleasant. Cats are not pink. But other, more interesting, animals are. Very girly. By the way, that one secretes cyanide in defense, so much as you might be tempted, don’t play with it.
