Further Christian Responses To My Responses To Their Responses

My atheist jaunt on Facebook stirred some feathers, it seems. I got some drunken heckling for it from someone that used to be a friend, and since as far as my ideology is concerned I REALLY care about this, I'm going to respond. I don't give a shit if you don't like it. You know who you is.

Firstly, issues were taken with me even having the audacity to argue with christians and what they believe. Why can't I just leave them alone, eh? Why can't I keep my mouth shut?

Ok . .… Continue

Top fundamentalist\creationist Christian responses to science, intellectualism, reason and empirical evidence. These are only common responses that have arisen within the short time I’ve really started using the internet to rape fundamentalists; there are, of course, countless other hilarious things that come up in conversation, and countless other hilarious proofs against God. This is a very small starting point, but it amused me.

Finally! JESUSPAN!

My life has obviously been devoid of joy and happiness until this very moment. I've been eating my bread lightly toasted without a religious figure lovingly pressed into it! How did I ever manage to enjoy carbs until now?!

I couldn't make this kind of shit up if I tried. Fool, money, parted...blah blah…

Things You Will Never Overhear at the 2008 Summer Olympics

Okay, so I totally ripped off this list from cartoonist Francesco Marciuliano. It's hilarious.

Things You Will Never Overhear at the 2008 Summer Olympics

"Breathe in deep that fresh Beijing air. Smell that? That's the smell of freedom, my boy."

“Wow, NBC hasn’t focused on a single American athlete yet.”

“If you ever needed proof that rhythmic gymnastics is a real sport, there it is.”

“Remember, this broadcast is our big chance… Continue

Peta: Blowing Goats for 28 Years

This is beyond tasteless, but what can we expect from the wide-eyed chinchilla-buggerers at Peta?

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to eat an entire fucking cow.

Nice nice for the Canucks!

Yay for the Canadians. Hoorah to our neighbors from the North. According to the Angus Reid online poll:

58% of Canucks think humans evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, and 22% believe God created people in their present form within the last 10,000 years.

Hip hip hooray! Nice nice! Yah boo! Phillips is a German and he have my pen! Um...excuse me...…

Looking For The Facts

I'm on a Quest of biblical proportions! (pun intended)

I've spent the last two days scouring the web for cold hard facts about the origins of christianity and how it basically stole most of its symbolism and myths from previous pagan religions.

I've found several sources but they are either biased and laden with agenda, or simply not cited. And while they basically agree, that doesn't make it fact.

There must be some resources out there that are… Continue

Big foot sighting, my foot!

Unfair Criticism of PZ Myers and other Secular Scientists

On July 31, 2008 posted an articled titled: What's wrong with science as religion, by Karl Giberson. Giberson, who has a PhD in physics and is the author of “Saving Darwin: How to be a Christian and believe in Evolution” was responding to a July 24th web posting by PZ Meyers on Meyers’ blog Pharyngula. ( In the web posting Meyers stuck a rusty nail in a communion cracker, and then used the nail to impale pages of the Qur’an and Richard Dawkin’s “The… Continue

"The Romance of Science"

A guest blogger at Pharyngula invited regulars to answer the question, "Why do you like science?" What follows is a slightly modified version of my answering comment.

I have always experienced what Carl Sagan called "the romance of science"; it was only when he expressed the phrase that I knew that to be what it was.

I am especially awed by natural sciences and the phenomena they encompass (as opposed to the breathtaking accomplishments such as have been done with… Continue

Response to Ray Comfort

Ray Comfort is a vacuous chode. This isn't exactly new but I had to say it. I don't hate the guy, I've never met him. I think his views are skewed and his polarizing opinions are nothing but damaging but I don't hate him. Heck, there's even a chance, albeit slim, that we might get along as long as things stayed completely neutral on religion. Anyway...

He's changed the name of his blog to "atheist central", which is probably true considering the number of links his site gets from… Continue

We NEED to Defeat Them!

Warreno posted a blog today featuring what many voters probably just don't see: 'the caliber of person who fears immigrants, queers and a black president.' Warreno is from Arizona. I'm from Pennsylvania. I imagine, really, that ignorant rednecks are everywhere, in every state, at least. But I do come across people that are often surprised to see the type...for them, it's like going to the zoo and seeing… Continue

Warning: Liberal Use of the Word 'Douchebag'

It is wrong to laugh at the misfortune of others. Wrong, I tell you. It seems that members of the Phelps family lost their garage last night to the flames of what could possibly be an arsonist. That is, indeed, unfortunate. I mean, just because the Phelp's are hate-mongering, unconscionable douchebags doesn't mean we should...

We Can’t Defeat Them … WHY?

Ford POS with rusted-out body, gas-heavy exhaust mix and a misfiring cylinder rolled up to the local convenience store. Three beer-bellied bearded men in jeans and a white trash woman piled out.

On the passenger side door was the blazon, Western Conservative Alliance.

This is what we're up against. This is the base that got Bush elected. This is the caliber of person who fears immigrants, queers and a black president.

Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives

[Part 1] At age 19, Mark Everett - better known as E, the frontman of geek-rock outfit Eels - ... found his scientist father Hugh Everett dead from a heart attack. Everett senior was the underacknowledged quantum physicist who first developed the theory of parallel universes. Now, 25 years after his father's death, Mark wants to get to know this emotionally absent savant who rarely spoke. He does this by interviewing his dad's…

I Love Atheist Nexus!

So, I've been on Atheist Nexus for a little while now. So far I find the place to be fun, inspiring, and quite friendly. It's been a great experience. While I'd love to donate tons of mad cash, I don't have it. But I read my new friend Hessenroots' most recent blog post about donating, and thought, hey, what a great idea!

Hess just started a CafePress shop to sell all… Continue

Supporting Atheist Nexus

Early-ish this morning fellow AN member 'IsThatLatin' posted a blog in regard to the sites fund-raising efforts.

I thought about it, agreed, commented and moved on. For some reason it was stuck in my head for a better part of the day and it got me thinking a bit more.

Without going into a winded diatribe on the matter here's the deal:

I've come up with a number of new… Continue

Atheism: more than a word in a dictionary.

New post up on my blog. One you're probably not going to like.

Here's a snippet:

"Many atheists fiercely argue against any suggestion that atheism is anything like religion. Not only that, many expressive posts have also been written about how atheism is most definitely not an ideology or a philosophy, only to then describe a common set of beliefs, similar… Continue
