A University of Texas San Antonio student group called The Atheist Agenda has created a program on their campus called “Smut for Smut.” The atheist group is giving away pornography in exchange for Bibles. This apparently has caused quite a stir both among Christians and surprisingly among other atheists.
I get why Christians are up in arms. For one thing, most Christians haven’t read their Bibles and don’t realize that there are a few passages in Psalms which are very smutty. Those… Continue

The LONG awaited arrival of the newest addition to our family finally has happened.
At almost 3 am, an 8 lb. 4 oz. beautiful, healthy baby girl was born on 3-2-10. That is all.
Oh, and her name is Rayna. (thanks "Nerd" for pointing out my lack of savvy with these things, and letting me know the wonderful things they can do nowadays. ;-) )

With the recent earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, Christian missionaries have been mobilizing to those nations. With devastation, pain, and grief comes an opportunity to proselytize and spread the “Good News” about Jesus. This week, the Washington Post’s “On Faith” section asks: Proselytizing overseas: Religious freedom or coercion?
“What is the real problem with proselytism overseas by U.S. religious groups? Isn't sharing one's faith part of religious freedom? When does it cross the… Continue

Robert Winston, renowned British scientist, BBC doco presenter, and occasional Christian apologist, was defending the efficacy of science on BBC interview show, Hardtalk. In a throw-away line he suggested that atheists take the unreasonable position of automatically accepting the factuality of scientific claims without question (attacking Richard Dawkins et al. ?). By implication non-atheists are able to take a more nuanced view of science's strengths and… Continue

I read in an article:http://www.examiner.com/x-12731-Phoenix-Womens-Health-Examiner~y2010m2d25-Criminal-Miscarriage--New-Legislation-in-Utah
that Utah is trying to "outlaw" miscarriages. Never mind 1 out of 4 pregnant women suffer miscarriages, they will investigate all of them.
The dumbest thing about this law is it's vague wording. Being "knowingly… Continue

The atheist community is abuzz about the new study by the London School of Economics and Political Science. After correlating the data from the study, evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa claims that atheists have a higher IQ than people who claim to be “very religious.”
The study claims to have used a “large sample” of adolescents from grades 7 through 12 during the 1994-1995 school year and then interviewed them again in 2001 and 2002. According to the study, those who claimed… Continue

After a trip to the OB this morning to potentially set up a hospital induction, the wife was far enough along for the midwife to come out and break waters. Waters were successfully broken at 2:30 pm.
Now it's just the last leg of the "hurry up and wait" game as we anxiously await good contractions and heavy labor. This part can take a few hours before there's any real progress of note, but we can be certain of one thing. This baby will make her debut in the world either tonight or… Continue

First off, it would be rather iggnorant to think that in all the vast reaches the entire Universe that we Earth dwellers are alone and/or the highest form of life. My personal belifs are that there should be at least some other planet that is still sustaining life on it. If it happend here on Earth, why can't it happen elsewhere?
