Nye vs. Ham

Here in the Pacific Northwest we have been blanketed with snow for the past few days.  Because we do not have the infrastructure to deal with said snow, we all tuck in and stay home.  Thus, we had several days with my two girls (ages 12 and 15) to enjoy board games, creative projects, and you guessed it…viewing the Nye vs. Ham debate.  I would not have opted to sit through all two hours and forty five minutes if not for the fact that we were snowed in.  

Having been…

How do you feel about today's state of the government and the politics that run it?

I feel disgusted. You probably do too.

I watched this week's episode of Bill Moyers and Company with their guest, Marty Kaplan (found here: http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-big-money-big-media-big-trouble/).

In it, Marty Kaplan said; "People say they know it's a con, just as they say that they are not being swayed by the ads for products that they see on television. If…

Rachel Norton posted the following list of top ed news stories of the decade. While I would agree that these were important education stories, they are all well known to most of the public. Yet each also has a hidden story behind it that has been ignored by the media.…

God In Chaos; Chapter Nine; THE INTELEGENT DESIGN VIEW OF EVOLUTION part thirty-eight

When addressing some of the issues of the fundamentalist view of evolution

it is important to identify some key words that they use to try to

vilify reasonable scientists and educated people that understand the

concepts of evolution and natural selection. From the way the word

is used by the intelligent design side it seems that the word

“Darwinism” is meant to describe the “believers” in the

Theory of Evolution to make it seem more like a radical belief… Continue

Chapter Eight; WHAT ABOUT ALL THE GOOD THEY DO? part twenty-nine



It is fair to recognize the good that the religious adherents do again. After all, my forefathers came to this country to experience and escape

religious persecution of Europe. Religious America has allowed many

sorts of views of religion to live in a relatively peaceful manor. The

Puritans, Quakers, Baptists, Catholics, Presbyterians,…

Ridicule or Reason?

There are two main approaches that Atheists take when trying to open a religious mind, and release the seed of reason trapped inside. One group, such as Dawkins, Harris, Dennet, use mainly their own reason as a pry bar to try and accomplish this, while another group, people such as Hitchens, Bill Mahr, or any number of other comics like Doug Stanhope, prefer to use the hammer of ridicule to bust the piggy bank wide open. Which method is best?



Most Atheists, I think can appreciate… Continue

Holy Shit! I just watched Bill Maher's Religulous!

I just got out of watching Bill Maher's new movie, Religulous at it's world premiere at the Traverse City Film Festival. It was one of the first films to sell out at the festival, selling out in just the first couple days of sales.



Security was very tight. Cellphones had to be turned completely off. It was repeatedly announced that anyone with an active cellphone would have it confiscated. If any images were found from the movie on the phone, then charges would be leveled against… Continue
