129th Skeptics’ Circle: How the Discovery Channel has Fallen

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

(Super-awesome photograph by Ron Britton) I haven’t been trying to neglect the blog lately. I was hoping to cut back to two or three articles per week, not two or three weeks per article. It’s amazing how merely re-prioritizing the blog from #1 hobby to #2 hobby has robbed it of so much attention. The […]

Brief Update

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

First of all, here’s a funny comic that I found over at God Lizard. I had to shrink it slightly to fit my margins. You can visit the original if you need it bigger. Secondly, I just fished a funny comment out of the spam filter. It’s from somebody calling him/herself atheismisdead. He/she/it links to […]

I need to say something to the creationists in the audience. I know this comes as a shock to you. It doesn’t surprise the rest of us, but we had to check your X-rays to make sure.
