Fundies Hate the Blasphemy Challenge

Monday, February 26th, 2007

The Blasphemy Challenge has succeeded in pissing off the fundies, which was one of its unstated goals. Here’s an excerpt from Baptist Press’ Culture Digest (I always thought that’s what happened after you ate yogurt): A radical new website is gaining popularity by challenging people to deny the existence of God, and it’s run by [...]

Kansas Public Schools No Longer National Embarrassment. Fundies Vow to Fix That.

Science Made Stupid

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

Phil Plait is doing my job for me. He has a couple of good posts about a young-Earth creationist, named Marcus Ross, who has been granted a Ph.D. in Geosciences from Rhode Island University. In order to get the Ph.D., Ross had to lie about his belief in the age of the Earth. Phil’s first [...]

Cowardly TVC Attacks John Edwards Indirectly

Friday, February 16th, 2007

The fundies seem to be so afraid of Democrats that they will attack them in any way possible. The Traditional Values Coalition (an apt name, since they’re defending the traditional Christian values of intolerance and hate) doesn’t have a stake to burn the “witches” at, so they use inflammatory language to do so metaphorically. The [...]

Darwin Day is on Feb. 12. A lot of organizations are celebrating it this weekend. If you’d like a little rationality this weekend instead of superstition, why don’t you head on over to your local celebration? The main Darwin Day website explains what it’s all about.

NFL Won’t Play Ball, So Fundies Try Different Play

Friday, February 9th, 2007

I previously reported on Fall Creek Baptist Church being denied the privilege of using the Super Bowl broadcast to recruit new sheeple.

Since they couldn’t embarrass the NFL into changing its policy, they’re trying a different [...]
