Pencils at Dawn

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

I grabbed the cartoon for that last post from a site called Pencils at Dawn. The site is run by two cartoonists. They agree on a subject, then each draws a cartoon about it. Some of them are very funny. I just found the above image at their site as well. Sadly, they haven’t updated [...]

Welcome to Nowhere

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

(Image from Pencils at Dawn) I’ve wanted to blog about some of the fundie reaction to the election results, but I’ve been busier than normal this past week.

Convicted felon and self-proclaimed “psychic” Sylvia Browne is notorious for her failed predictions, laughably inaccurate readings, and inability to make any concrete, specific predictions about the future (above the level of chance). For years, Robert Lancaster has been exposing the truth about Sylvia on his website. I met Robert at TAM 6 this year. He [...]

The Selfish Fundie

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

(Image from The Information Paradox) This article grew out of a comment by Lindsay, who writes: How about the comparison of fundies to vermin taken in a literal sense—that frankly, stupid people tend to breed more than intelligent people. There has been considerable research in the link between the amount of time a woman spends [...]
