Feathery Dinosaurs Don't Tickle Bible Nuts

In a development completely unimportant in both theology and science, fundamental Christians have expressed their opposition to feathered dinosaurs.



A little background here: Creationistas, who believe the Bible to be literally true, have always had…

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

"Where does a rainbow come from?"

The other day, someone i'm very close to had just found out i'm an atheist. So she looked at me and said, "Katie, where does a rainbow come from?" I know it has something to do with the sun and a prism of colors, but i dont know everything about it and I don't know how it works exactly, so I took a moment before I answered. Seeing that I didn't answer right away though, and seeing me ponder it, she isaid , "see? Nobody knows. It's god." And I said, "No, its just a prism of reflecting light and… Continue

Another debate with TheHonestTheist

So I asked him a simple question on why we should interpret the bible differently now then the way we used to because if it's the infallible word of God then it shouldn't need to be "Interpreted". His answer? "God works in mysterious ways" I was at an utter loss for words.

Forbes magazine, creationists and the good of the stakeholders

Having written for a business magazine, I'm baffled about Forbes publishing a trio of anti-Darwin rants on a seemingly random whim. And I have a few thoughts on the subject, most of them very negative. Forbes might be undermining its reputation and hurting the interests of its stakeholders by allowing ID friendly editors to use their media soapbox as a bully pulpit.

A Message For Creationists and Fundamentalists

Ok, I know, we're all good-natured atheists here, but this article would be for those of you who know creationists and fundamentalists. I know they are all hypocrites, but they are really bad about it. So I listed everything I could think of that they need to forsake. Please feel free to add to what I've got already. The whole article is at HDC.

is evolution a repeatable science?

An occasionally used creationist tactic is declaring that evolution isn’t a scientific theory but a circular argument preached with the zeal of a religion. Evolution, they say, isn’t repeatable under laboratory conditions and if it’s not repeatable, it’s not science. Can we put evolutionary mechanisms to the test and show exactly how we can reproduce them in a lab?

Turkish creationist offering trillions to prove that transitional fossils are real is crazier than the media reports...

A Turkish creationist's stunt contest offering 7.5 trillion lira or $4.6 trillion U.S. is still open and will be for a very long time. But can you expect anything else from someone who thinks that evolution is a Zionist/Freemason conspiracy to enslave his countrymen?

your book vs. my universe, a science writer's statement of purpose

This is a post from my popular science blog, Weird Things which I thought would be of interest to Atheist Nexus's community since I'm trying to summarize the atheist/agnostic stance on life and provide a rebuttal to the theist charge that atheists and agnostics are angry and bitter because we have a very limited worldview. Here's the post in its entirety...



I periodically get asked why I write about creationism and creationists and try to use a scientific battering ram on people who… Continue
