(Image from Crocoduck-Rex) Dennis Wagner, co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Access Research Network, the poor-man’s Discovery Institute, admitted in a blog post yesterday that their so-called “intelligent designer” is God. Wagner writes: I must admit I’m not a big fan of Rap or Hip-Hop. I think its a result of being born in […]

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

Before Charles Darwin goes to the carnival, he marks his place in his books using official Bay of Fundie™ Charles Darwin bookmarks! (Image from Wilson’s Almanac.)

Inappropriate Christmas Greeting

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

(Image from Live Journal Vintage Ads forum.) Since I ran those three ads that I considered inappropriate, I could not resist posting this picture as well.

The Almost-Atheist Christmas

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

I almost forgot about this. This is my only YouTube video. I also posted it last year at this time. This is some weird film (maybe from the early 1950s?) about two puppets.
