Maul Santas (Part 1)

Friday, December 24th, 2010

It has always struck me as odd that everybody keeps asking kids the same question this time of year: “Do you believe in Santa?” Why? Nobody asks them “Do you believe in Barack Obama?” or “Do you believe in J.K. Rowling?” or “Do you believe in the +8 oxidation state of ruthenium tetroxide?” The fact […]

Office Christmas (Part 2)

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Actually, this is almost what it looked like. Yesterday, I mentioned that somebody at work was so fearful of offending any coworkers that she was afraid to put up a few Christmas decorations in her cubicle. That reminded me of the days when I used to be offended by Christmas. I haven’t celebrated Christmas since […]

Office Christmas (Part 1)

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

We have a relatively new employee at work. Let’s call her KC. She’s probably in her early 50s. She is very obviously Catholic. She doesn’t advertise this.

Comparative Religion Venn Diagram

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

One of my most popular posts of all time was the Intelligent Design Venn Diagram. I didn’t make it. I just reprinted it. Nevertheless, a lot of people complained to me that I “made it wrong” and they were offended by it. This one should be even more offensive. Again, I didn’t make it. I […]

What Would It Take To Convince You?

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Brian and Parrotlover recently raised an interesting question that we’ve all probably thought about: What would it take to convince you that God is real? In a comment to the “Asshole Jesus” article, Brian wrote: Believers have the easiest go of it, because all it takes is just one miracle (beyond Mary-shaped piss stains on […]

Are Fundies Stupid?

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Yes. OK, OK! My title is inflammatory, and my answer is overly simplistic. I’ll rephrase it: Q: Are fundies dumber than a fence post? A: Mostly yes. OK, OK! I can hear the objections already, and I’ll concede the point. Let’s try again: Q: Are fundies dumber than a fence post? A: Absolutely yes. A […]
