(((Carnival))) of the Godless

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The latest Carnival of the Godless is up over at (((Billy))) the Atheist. You should have a glance at all of the articles, but the one I thought was the most spot-on was “‘God Sent the Shooter:’ White Christian Terrorism and the Assassination of George Tiller” by Sikivu Hutchinson. She writes: So while the U.S. […]

So is it Darwinism or isn’t it?

Friday, June 26th, 2009

(From Alun Salt’s Flickr stream) I read the Discovery Institute’s brain-dead blog, Evolution News & Views, every day. You remember those stories of the highly-devout who will self-flagellate? It’s some sort of twisted penance for thinking impure thoughts or something. Well I punish myself every day, too. I read Evolution News & Views. I usually […]

Bill’s Johnson Keeps It Up

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Looking at pussy! (Oh, come on! You know I had to say it!) Bill Johnson of the American Decency Ass. is continuing his relentless pursuit of porn. His little tirade of a few days ago got picked up by the acme of journalism, OneNewsNow. And by “acme”, I mean: Pronunciation: \ˈak-mē\ Function: noun Etymology: Greek […]

Those Who Live in Glass Houses Shouldn’t Throw Molotovs

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

I’m having computer problems right now, so I might not be able to post for a couple of days. (I have several alternate computers I could post from, but I need to spend the time trying to fix this one.) I was thinking that I should find something to keep you folks busy for a […]

Calvin Klein Using Porn to Sell Jeans

We haven’t looked in on Bill Johnson and the American Decency Association in a while. Let’s see what they’re getting aroused over. We have a couple of new email alerts. A few days ago, he sent one with the breathless announcement: “Calvin Klein back at it again: 50 foot p–n ad” Apparently if you actually […]

The Life and Lies about Charles Darwin

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Which of these statements is false? Charles Lindbergh was the first to fly across the Atlantic. John Glenn was the first American in space. Charles Darwin discovered evolution. They’re all false, of course. No scholar claims that any of them are true, yet there are some folks out there who somehow got their facts confused. […]

Evolution and Animation

Monday, June 15th, 2009

Two things that both take a long time. Here are a few things I found on the web this morning that I really like. First up is the one I really believe in (but not in a religious way, ’cuz we don’t worship him): Next is a University of Johannesburg ad (Click to embiggen. Yes, […]

Dining with the Devil

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

I don’t think I’ve actually been in a coffee shop in a really long time. I don’t know why that is. What this means is that I don’t actually know if coffee shops still sell gum and Life Savers. But in olden times (the 1970s), they did. It was always in the glass counter beneath […]
