Satirical Santa Only Visits Talking Heads Who Remember to Bring the Irony

What so many in the right wing echo chamber do not seem to get is that Satire does not begin the moment you are called out for making an ass of yourself.

Pay No Attention to the Abe in the Corner!

One of the most beautiful gifts of the internet is the ability to learn at a glance the wisdom of America’s founding fathers. In fact, one can often find these pearls of wisdom beautifully packaged in nice visuals. They are perfect for a tweet or a quick illustration, and so very informative.

Brian George commented on Dan Wall's blog post Reza Aslan and New Atheists Who Really are Atheists After All

Michael Penn commented on Dan Wall's blog post Reza Aslan and New Atheists Who Really are Atheists After All

Reza Aslan and New Atheists Who Really are Atheists After All

The ongoing feud between Reza Aslan and the so-called “New Atheists” continues to shed more heat than light. The latest round of this race to the bottom of the intellectual barrel comes to us in the form of a Salon piece written by Aslan.

A Rambling Little Bit About Rock Lyrics

So, I’m tooling around Vegas a couple weeks back, listening to Ozzie’s Boneyard when I hear this story about the origin of No More Tears. Apparently, Ozzie was in the bathtub, so the story goes, when inspiration struck.Read more here...…See More

Fragments of Skepticism

http://northierthanthou.com/2012/07/06/fragments-of-skepticism-from-my-youth/A CARTOON BIBLE AND AN EAGER YOUNG MIND: No sooner had I learned to read than I decided to tackle the cartoon Bible sitting beside the bed. In fact, I think the ability to read that bible had been one of the major selling points for learning to read to begin with. Cartoons or not, this was a thick volume and it took a lot of…See More
