Hitch will be missed. I hope he stays with us, as productively and healthily, as he possibly can.

Devine Transfers ... who knew?

You have got to be f'ing kidding me!  I just sat slack-jawed watching a con artist on BET.  The good Reverend Peter Popoff was just on.  Did you know that if you call his number he will send you his Miracle Spring Water (for either drinking or anointing yourself - your choice) and he will send you his special anointing tool?  All for FREE!  BUT WAIT! there's more! if you send him some "seed money" on faith of course, and you take all of your bills out and you pray over them, he will write…

Skeptics.

I run a Skeptics in the Pub here in Huntsville- next one in February, be on the look out. I'm interested in how many people self identify as "Skeptics". And what they think are interesting subjects. Yes, I'm shamelessly asking for relevant topics for my events to focus on; but I'm also just curious what other people think about.



Equally interesting, to me, is what non-skeptics think about things like UFOs, Bigfoot, Medical Quackery (homeopathy, chriopractic, acupuncture, etc),… Continue

The Fraud Flu

Mercy Ministries ministires engaged in misleading conduct, directors forced to pay

T

The ACCC (The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission) has released its findings on Mercy Ministries and Mercy Ministries Executives have admitted that have engaged in false and misleading conduct. I can understand now why Pastor Bryan Huston could not back on the door fast enough, if he got wind of this early. Hillsong overcame revelations of Pastor Frank Houston’s sexual abuse of young men and boys, but financial misconduct…

The Truth about Faith

The natural realm is the universe and everything in it. The supernatural realm is, by definition, outside the natural realm, so nobody knows, or can know, anything whatsoever about the supernatural. The natural realm is physical; evidence for it is literally everywhere. The supernatural realm is pure conjecture and absolutely unsupported by physical evidence of any kind. The supernatural is, therefor, not scientifically testable.



However, supernatural claims… Continue

The Supernatural, Dogma and Fraud

At the micro level -- individuals and local churches -- religion often provides comfort and community. However, at the macro level of organized religion, the consequences of belief systems based on the supernatural become clear.



Because they all make exclusive claims to God, the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) have been THE most persistently divisive influence in all of human history. If you doubt that, just turn on the news or visit the library or Google it.… Continue
