Comment of the Day, #8

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

This is an occasional feature that I run when somebody makes an especially pithy or insightful comment here, and I happen to remember that I have this feature. Today’s comment comes, once again, from Jeff Eyges, who writes: Perhaps this country has been the beneficiary of divine intervention, because I can’t understand how we’ve lasted […]

Run, Fundie, Run!

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

[Unless I got decapitated while riding the Greyhound (or incinerated in Waco—What is it with Waco and infernos, anyway?) (or killed by a freight ship) (or—well you get the idea), I actually should be back from vacation right about now. I’ve scheduled this final article to run now in case I’m too tired to jump […]

[I’m on vacation right now, so here is a quick post I wrote in advance. Feel free to discuss it among yourselves.] Welcome to our final installment of pictures from Conservababes. You’re going to be glad you stuck it out to the end. I’ve saved the best for last! I give you: The Brew! Har! […]

Report from So. Cal.

Friday, November 13th, 2009

I’ve been having a pretty good time on my vacation. For the bulk of the week, I was visiting relatives in Palm Springs.

Today we see that much of that imagery is […]

Welcome, Orange County Atheists

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

Ray Comfort meeting with the Orange County Atheists in January 2008 I just got back to the hotel after spending a fun evening with the Orange County Atheists. If any BoF readers out there live in the area and haven’t attended, you should check them out some time. I managed to unload 17 business cards […]

Conservababes Pix #3: Darwin

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

[I’m on vacation right now, so here is a quick post I wrote in advance. Feel free to discuss it among yourselves.] Today we continue our look at the sub-moronic image gallery at Conservababes. I’m not sure what they thought they were accomplishing with the above picture. I guess they’re trying to discredit Darwin. Well […]

Conservababes Pix #2: Literacy Fail

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

[I’m on vacation right now, so here is a quick post I wrote in advance. Feel free to discuss it among yourselves.] This week we’re looking at the laughably-bad anti-science gallery at Conservababes. I found a couple of images that scream “stupid” louder than most. What is one of the most common characteristics of creationists […]
