Death of Logic

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

(from Gaspirtz) I made the mistake of going by Clown Hall today. That’s when I realized that their name isn’t descriptive enough. It’s not just a site populated by conservative clowns who bumble and stumble with illogic and misfacts. It should be called “Clown Car Hall”, because no matter how fast you shoot them down, [...]

Limp Fundie Arguments

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Since I have a second oddly-suggestive photograph of Kim Jong-Il, I need to write a second article. Here are some comments I found on a fundie “news” site about the Christmas trees that the South Korean fundies are putting on the border to piss off the North Koreans. A Christian calling himself A_Proud_Infidel says: Overseas, [...]

The Alpha Course

Monday, July 11th, 2011

(Cartoon from The Rut) I was all set for my big comeback article tonight. It was going to be good. I was going to write about a high-pressure fundie recruitment ploy that utilizes intensive sales techniques, a la the dreaded timeshare sales pitch. It turns out that isn’t quite what they do, and it was [...]

False Alarm

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

This guy stood outside the hall all day Saturday and tried to convert us. (From San Jose Calif. Mercury News) Don’t panic about that last post. That went up by mistake. I was having too much fun at the Regional Atheist Meeting to run home and stop the post. I figured if Harold Camping was [...]

I’ve Been Unexpectedly Raptured

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Well this is embarrassing. It appears that I have just been raptured. If you’re seeing this post, it means that God has taken me! (Or possibly I’ve just been run over by a drunk driver while trying to cross the street. Please check outside for a mangled body on the road. That’s probably me.) I [...]

A Crick in the Neck of Religion

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Francis Crick co-discovered, with James D. Watson and Rosalind Franklin, the structure of DNA in 1953. Wikipedia has an entire section of his article titled “Views on Religion”. That section starts off with: Crick once joked, “Christianity may be OK between consenting adults in private but should not be taught to young children.” To which [...]

Outnumbered

Friday, December 31st, 2010

Via clips on YouTube, I have discovered an extremely funny British sitcom. It’s called Outnumbered, and it’s about a couple and their three kids. That description makes it sound like every other sitcom (especially every other bad sitcom) on the air. What sets this one apart is that it’s funny. The best member of the [...]

They Paved the Lily Pad and Put up a Parking Lot

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

(From The Full Bug) It saddens me greatly to report the demise of my second-favorite blog. Happy Jihad’s House of Pancakes is no more. Bing McGhandi has announced that his fiery, flamboyant assault on the self-stupid has ceased production. He is shifting focus and will be starting a new blog under his real name. The [...]
