Unlike Kodak, I’m Not Dead Yet

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

All those wires! (YouTube page here) I know it looks like the blog has been abandoned, but it hasn’t! Things have been quiet on the site from a lack of time and motivation. When I had articles I wanted to write (and there have been many), I didn’t have the time. When I had free […]

How Do Conservatives and Liberals See the World?

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Yes, yes. Godwin. I know! I just watched the latest episode of Moyers & Company with Bill Moyers. He interviewed social psychologist Jonathan Haidt. Haidt has a forthcoming book titled The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion. It was a fascinating program. I recommend it, if you haven’t watched it […]

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, […]

Why We Fight

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

I was trying to write a thorough and thoughtful analysis of the decade since 9/11, but I was having trouble distilling all of my thoughts. I’m greatly concerned about the civil liberties we have so eagerly surrendered in exchange for a sense of security. I’ll be covering that issue more often in the future, so […]

Summer Vacation, 1976

“There is a Growing Tendency to Think of Man as a Rationally Thinking Being… Which is Absurd. There is simply no evidence of any intelligence on the Earth.” (YouTube page is here) When I was growing up, my family would sometimes go back to my grandfather’s farm in South Dakota for a couple of weeks […]

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 […]
