Why Do People Laugh at Creationists? (9 & 10)

Friday, November 30th, 2007

There are a lot of good videos on YouTube that debunk creationism. I’ve been cruising around looking for some. I came across the videos of Thunderf00t. They’re a little dry in parts and sometimes the editing is a little rough, but, overall, they do a good job of refuting a variety of bogus claims. He […]

Discovery Institute—The Modern Martin Luther King

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

You mean by telling the truth? Sure! We can do that! (Image from the Discovery Institute) The geniuses over at the Discovery Institute have just now discovered that you can’t believe everything you see in print (if only they’d apply this lesson to the Bible or their own website). In response to an article they […]

Curses of Ancient Egypt

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

(Image from JewishSoftware. Look at the lower left panel. Note how the Egyptians are speaking with an Italian accent!) The Bible contains some true statements and many false ones. It is worthwhile to try to determine which parts of the book are actually true. Last year, I reviewed a documentary on the National Geographic Channel […]

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

(Image from The Wagner Companies.) Don’t forget, it’s on December 23rd every year. My favorite part of the holiday is the airing of grievances. I always have a long list of those. If you can’t find an aluminum pole in your garage or attic, you can always buy one. They have a 6′ floor-standing pole […]

The War on Christmas

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

(Image from Ausin Cline. See entire gallery.) There is no war on Christmas. People say “happy holidays” because there is more than one holiday at the end of the year. There’s Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and even Festivus. Pardon me for trying to be inclusive! Even if the entire population was Christian, it would still […]

Jesus Sent Me an Email

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

Daniel Dennett, Jesus Christ, and Richard Dawkins He wanted to advertise on my blog. I turned him down. That’s right. I said no to Jesus. Actually, the email was from Troy Conrad, who portrays Jesus in a one-man stage production, The Comedy Jesus Show. I don’t currently carry paid advertising on this site (it’s more […]
