Perception is Reality

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Via Dogwood Tales, I came across I-Spot Annoying Fanboys. It’s a “humorous” look at the people you know who are a little too deep into their lifestyle choices. I put “humorous” in quotation marks only because it’s quite uneven. Some jokes work; others miss completely. They’re equally spotty on their facts. They do make some […]

This is Why, STOOPID!

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

I received an email from the “Family” Research Council (and “Family” is probably an accurate description). The email states: When the North Carolina legislature asked Ron Baity to serve as a guest chaplain at the state house, the pastor of Berean Baptist Church said it was an honor. What he didn’t know was how short-lived […]

My Evening with Greta Christina

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

Wow. You guys missed the most amazing talk. Greta Christina spoke tonight at the San Francisco Atheists meeting. Her subject was “What can the atheist movement learn from the gay movement?” I wish I had taken notes. I did write down one thing she said, because it touched upon a matter that I occasionally struggle […]

Atheists are Delusional

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

I came across the website of some philosopher named James Spiegel, who has written a book called The Making of an Atheist. The opening paragraph on his web page caught my attention: Sigmund Freud famously dismissed belief in God as a psychological projection caused by wishful thinking. Today many of the “new atheists”—including Richard Dawkins, […]

Why Couldn’t He Have Taken a Three-Day Rest?

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Our seven-day week seems to be based on the Genesis myth. Our five-day work week is the result of the labor movement. Clearly, unions are more powerful than God. However, starting primarily with the Reagan administration, labor unions are being destroyed in this country. I guess Republicans think they’re more powerful than unions. Using the […]

Three Articles to Check Out

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

I came across three interesting articles this last week. I thought I’d pass them along. Somebody Went Postal on Him Over at the WFMU blog is “The Ballad Of The Walking Postman”. It’s a tale from the Civil Rights Era. Here’s what WFMU says about it: Today’s musical selection tells the story of Bill Moore, […]

Carnival of the Godless #134

Monday, February 1st, 2010

The latest Carnival of the Godless is godlessly carnivaling at Right to Think. There’s a bunch of stuff over there. I really liked “Against the Gods: Arguments Against God’s Existence” by Ken at Arizona Atheist. It’s a long, thoughtful argument that refutes many of the arguments for God’s existence. Check it out. I also have […]

Fight the Commies—Go to Church!

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

[I’m having trouble finding the time to continue Darwin Was Wrong. Hopefully this weekend! In the meantime, here is a quickie I wrote a couple of months ago and then forgot to run.] Click image to slightly embiggen I found the above image on Miss Retro Modern’s Flickr stream. The ad above comes from Canada, […]
