Valid and Invalid Beliefs: The Pope and Other Carlatans

Over the past week I have engaged a number of christians on Twitter, and it seems as though evidence for beliefs, and specifically, what is it that makes beliefs valid or invalid. So I want to address directly the nature of valid and invalid beliefs, and then would like to shift my focus to one tweeter in particular and the pope and some comments he recently made.



Because christians and atheists always seem to start running into problems here, each criticizing the other of not having… Continue

The evil of Pope Benedict XVI

In a recent visit to London, the Holy Vicar of Christ continues with the past lies of the Catholic Church, continues to shirk the responsibility of his Church, and continues to spread misconceptions that are obviously false.…

Arrest The Pope

This is just too cool not to share. Last week, I submitted an idea for a t-shirt to tshirthell.com for their "Topical Idea Contest"

And they actually chose my idea, which is now for sale on their site!

ARREST THE POPE is the catchphrase in London newspapers

I wrote Arrest the Pope six months ago. Now Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and others are calling for his arrest in the Huffington Post.



My reasons go further back but are we're talking the same language. Dawkins wants to put Benedict XVI in jail for facilitating child molestation. I say the… Continue

I Called It

Last September 14, I posted “Impeach the Pope.” Last year he said he was “deeply ashamed” for the misconduct of American priests for sexual

intrigues with children and other disgraceful behavior.



Now it's hit home. In the diocese (or is it…

Pope has concept for measuring pain

AN: Please feel free to visit me at Good Reason News where you can find more pics and stuff that I don't post here.



(AP) – LES COMBES, Italy — Pope Benedict XVI said Wednesday that his guardian angel was clearly acting "on superior orders" when he let the pontiff fall and break his wrist this month.

science says: abstinence-only education is a public health hazard

On his trip to Africa, Pope Benedict XVI declared that traditional Church teachings are the only failsafe way to prevent the spread of STIs. So I decided to take a look at what science has to say about it and found that not only is traditional abstinence-only education an abject failure (ex: 82% of virginity pledgers deny their pledge later and have just one less partner than non-pledgers), it's also dangerous to the public at large. (… Continue

Hell: grand inauguration spring 2008

Earlier this year Pope Benedict XVI said, "hell is a place where sinners really do burn in an everlasting fire, and not just a religious symbol designed to galvanise the faithful". By contrast, in 1999 Pope John Paul II said hell was, "the ultimate consequence of sin itself. Rather than a place, hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy".



According to the catholic dogma of papal infallibility, which… Continue
