Skeptics’ Circle Number 127; Skeptic Fail #10

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

[I wrote this article last night, then decided not to run it. I was going to rewrite it this morning with just a mention of the carnival and a recommendation for another article. However, the last two comments made me decide to run this as is. The article only addresses those comments peripherally, but it […]

Darwin Was Wrong Will Return in a Moment

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

I took a break from recounting the horrors of the Darwin Was Wrong conference, so I could fit in the Christmas-related posts. As soon as I get a reasonable amount of time (in a day or two), I will resume the tale. It was worth the diversion. The Atomic Toy article got Stumbled-Upon, and I […]

Merry Xmas Obama, from Your Friends at WND

Monday, December 21st, 2009

Those wonderful theocratic Constitution-haters over at WorldNutDaily are always running polls. Their latest one is “What would you like to give Obama for Christmas?” The poll isn’t quite over, but I think the trend is clear. Let’s see what the folks who are supposed to be full of love for their fellow man think about […]

Carnival of Executions

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

Teddy Bear is a blasphemer! Nail him to the cross! It has been quite a while since I participated in a Carnival of the Godless. Now that my life is partially back to normal, it’s time to rejoin the fun. This week it is being held over at The Gaytheists. You’ll find ten good articles. […]

I’m Dreaming of a YouTube Christmas
