Creation Museum Carnival at Pharyngula

Sunday, May 27th, 2007

PZ Myers has set up a blog carnival over at Pharyngula to combat the Creation Museum. He has collected a bunch of links about this atrocity, to make it easy for people to find real science information. Hopefully his list will help to undo some of the damage this fundie museum brain-washing tool is doing […]

Creation Museum Opens This Weekend

Saturday, May 26th, 2007

The jaw-droppingly stupid Creation Museum is opening this weekend in Kentucky. In “honor” of this event, I thought I’d re-post a podcast I made a couple of years ago, when this national embarrassment was announced. The podcast is 29 minutes long. I think you’ll enjoy it. It starts off with an item about the Scopes […]

More Grave Dancing

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Christopher Hitchens may be an S.O.B., but he’s our S.O.B. Upon Jerry Falwell’s untimely demise (by which I mean it happened way too late), Hitchens wrote an article for Slate that has some brilliant lines. Here are just a few of them: The discovery of the carcass of Jerry Falwell on the floor of an […]

Jerry Falwell, B.I.H. (Burn in Hell)

Monday, May 21st, 2007

I don’t believe in heaven and hell, but if I did, I’m sure Jerry Falwell would be in the latter. When Falwell died last week, my first reaction was elation. Some people claim that it’s impolite to speak ill of the dead, let alone dance on their grave. I disagree. If somebody is as vile […]

Gideons Gored. Fundies Furious.

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

Tony Perkins of the Fundie Research Council recently gave us yet another example of why fundies are hazardous to our collective health, in his article “Gideons Replaced by Gore”. According to one hotel, saving souls isn’t nearly as important as saving the environment. That’s because hotels consume natural resources, not souls. Under a policy that […]

The Wisdom of George Carlin

Here are a couple of videos I found on YouTube. Set aside 17 minutes and watch them! The Ten Commandments [Video removed by fascist copyright holder] God, the Sun, and Joe Pesci [Video removed by fascist copyright holder]

Peter Griffin to Fundies: Bite Me!

Friday, May 4th, 2007

Last Sunday’s Family Guy was a bit better than usual. Maybe it was the numerous jabs at Conservative America, or maybe it was the ending. Therein lies our tale. The latest diatribe from Bill Johnson of the American Decency Association is called The Chutzpah of Fox. After monitoring the latest episode of Fox Television’s “Family […]

Passive Resistance

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

I was in the local Barnes & Noble recently. I wandered over to the Religion section to see if there was anything especially alarming that I hadn’t seen yet. Then I discovered that next to that was a section they call Religious Fiction. Here you’ll find crap like Left Behind and other “inspiring” stories of […]
