Religion – STILL At It

It was just one more article from the Huffington Post about Stephen Hawking, the Big Bang, and the fact that no god was necessary to make the whole business happen.  I’ve probably seen dozens of such articles over the past four or five years and watched him discuss the matter with people like Larry King.  Same stuff, different day,…

Indiana Politician Will Require Teachers To Prove Everything They Say Is True

What do magic and magic have in common?

Magic and magic, what do they have in common? Perhaps I should clarify. What do prolific supernatural beliefs have in common with conjuring tricks?



In between study, I work as a close-up magician, performing at weddings, coorporate dinners, birthday parties and other such events. My passion for creating illusion has led me to perform for thousands of people, and to spend countless hours in front of the mirror, fiddling with cards, and studying the techniques and psychology of magic.…

Facts Don't Matter Anymore

i'm reposting this for three reasons:

1.  i think it is an interesting observation that did not get much notice

2.  it's been on my mind a lot lately

3.  many of the blog posts have been weak lately.  not to belittle anyone else's efforts, but many are more appropriate for discussions or simple status updates than a blog post, IMO.  anyway, i'll also post the few comments that were made. 

please…

Clinicians are vulnerable too...



Beware of tendecy to see relationships that you expect to see or that are supported by striking examples readily available in your memory. Rely on your notes more than your memory. Recognize that hindsight is seductive: It can lead you to feel overconfident and sometimes to judge yourself too harshly for not having foreseen…

Facts Don't Matter Anymore

"facts are true whether you believe them or not" - Adam Savage (from the Reason Rally)

sadly, it is possible that Mr. Savage was wrong.  sure, on the face of it a statement like that is a no-brainer.  however, in today's world we are seeing a strange phenomena where facts are only as useful as a person wants them to be.  facts are now up for debate.  facts depend on the source from which you acquire them.  lastly, facts are no longer facts if someone chooses not to believe…

Some pearls of (un)wisdom from a creationist on facebook.

"You are checking theism with twisted, naturalistic logic. The two are completely incompatible, and thus one cannot define the other. That is the greatest fallacy of those who support Naturalism, thinking that they have an upper hand in defining the undefinable."



"If God wanted himself to be able to be tested by his own creation, then we could do so. We can't, and thus He doesn't."



"Since God works 100% through natural methods (meaning he rarely comes down to earth and… Continue

Four Reasons Why Religion Can Never be Reconciled with Science

I listened to Weekend Edition on NPR radio one day in January, 2012 and thought for a moment I was tuned to the wrong station.  Rachel Martin’s interview with Alvin Plantinga was such a pile of softball pandering to Christian mythology I found myself smacking my forehead in disbelief.

Plantinga, a self-proclaimed Christian, begins by professing his discomfort with science being at odds with his religion – essentially admitting his goal is to find some way to defend his faith by…

Andreas Hamza Tzorzis another unimportant person deleted on wikipedia

Hamza .. the "international public speaker" of the "islamic education and research academy" (already two jokes in one sentence) was a guy who tried to educate PZ Myers on embryology (three and counting) and the quran's superior knowledge about the topic 1400 years ago. 



I was shocked to see that he had a page entry in wikipedia. But…

Deceptive anti-evolution education bill passes in Tennessee House, onto Senate!!!!

House Bill 368 passed on April 7, now watch out for Senate Bill 0893.  This bill is disguised as promoting critical thinking and scrutinizing scientific evidence, but in actuality is a classic creationist "Teach the Controversy" bill.  Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of this.



The bill, or at least I believe it to be the current version:http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/107/Bill/SB0893.pdf

Creation Science Fair: Suggested Projects

The Twin Cities Creation Science Assocation recently held their annual Home School Science Fair in Roseville, Minnesota.  This is a great idea, and I would like to help out our budding young creation scientists with a few ideas for projects for next year's fair.



Biblical Ant Farm: The ant farm is always a winner, in any science fair. People just love to watch our little four-legged friends bustling about in their underground… Continue

Few High School Biology Teachers Accurately Teach Evolution

I hate to bag on my own colleagues, but the evidence is overwhelming: most high school biology teachers either do not teach evolution or undermine their own teaching by giving nods and winks to creationist ideas. (See Most high school biology teachers don’t endorse evolution, by Valerie…

Alert Local Public Stations about "Birth of Freedom"

Free Speech and Stealth Evangelism
If you haven't seen this it is worth noting that a slick production called "Birth of Freedom" is being shown on some public television stations. This sectarian slaughter of both American and World History is appalling for its inaccuracies and not-so-veiled attempt to paint America once again as a Christianist nation. I would recommend…

TN gubernatorial candidates' stances on evolution

A new website sponsored by the Tennessee Newspaper Network makes easy work of comparing the current gubernatorial candidates' positions on various issues. Each candidate presents a different opinion on the subject which is a welcome departure from the typical party-lines talking points that tend to dominate discussion.



Sadly, the debate between evolution and intelligent design is…

Computer Security For Fundamentalist Christians

For those of you who don't already know, AiG stands for Answers in Genesis, a popular creationist website. For comedic purposes I have chosen to confuse it with a popular anti-virus program, resulting in the following:

Creationist Kent Hovind's PhD thesis is a jumble of juvenile jabber



For those who blessedly don’t know, Kent Kovind Hovind is a leading voice in the young-earth creationist movement and the builder of the Dinosaur Adventure Land Creationist Theme Park in Pensacola. Where you can ride 'the Leap of Faith' swing. Well, after they reopen, which will be once they get enough money to pay the taxes they 'forgot' to pay.…
