Here Today, Gonorrhea Tomorrow

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

(Image by ecastro) I actually swiped the title of today’s post from Tony Perkins of the Fundie Research Council. It may be the first thing he has ever written that I actually approve of. Just the title, that is. The article itself is nothing to clap about. He writes: According to the most knowledgeable experts […]

Y2K(indle)

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

The iPad has suddenly made the Kindle appear long in the tooth, but I had no idea just how antiquated the Kindle actually was. Yesterday, I was searching for books by George Lakoff, a UC Berkeley linguist with some intriguing yet controversial ideas on the differences between how liberals and conservatives think. This is one […]

THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists

Monday, April 26th, 2010

and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. THEN THEY CAME for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. THEN THEY CAME for the teabaggers and birthers and conspiracy theorists, […]

Bad Fundies!

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

(Image from Comically Vintage) I’ve spent the last hour looking for a good fundie “news” article to rip apart. I’ve come up empty-handed. This is happening to me more and more often. Everything they’re writing these days is so derivative. It’s all the same old crap. “Contraception is abortion!” “America was founded by and populated […]

Tea Kookies

Friday, April 16th, 2010

An Article by Guest-Writer Jeff Eyges [Note: You last saw him guest-blogging in Pharyngula. Now, in a major career blunder, Jeff Eyges lowers his standards dramatically and agrees to write an article for Bay of Fundie. Risking his sanity for your entertainment, Jeff goes undercover at a teabag rally.] A few days ago, I received […]

San Francisco Green Festival

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Last Saturday, I went to the San Francisco Green Festival. This is my story. The experience actually began as I was walking from BART to the Concourse Exhibition Center. I saw this spray-painted onto an overpass support: Why do people do that? Is their message so important that they have to deface public property? Do […]

Keep the Government Out of Our Lives! Keep Marijuana Illegal!

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Fundie-run anti-government “news” site OneNeuronNow has published another one of their fair and balanced articles, this one telling us that an initiative to legalize marijuana in California has qualified for the November ballot. It’s comical to see OneNeuronNow run an article about teabaggers screaming about protecting personal freedoms, and then the very next article talks […]

Atheists are Delusional

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

I came across the website of some philosopher named James Spiegel, who has written a book called The Making of an Atheist. The opening paragraph on his web page caught my attention: Sigmund Freud famously dismissed belief in God as a psychological projection caused by wishful thinking. Today many of the “new atheists”—including Richard Dawkins, […]
