Here are my top 10 favorite fundie quotes with spelling/grammar errors intact. I used color text to separate each quote.

In America everyone is free to have an opinion, and free to voice that opinion. However, what most people fail to understand in my experience is not everyone's opinion is valid or should be taken seriously. If a million people including myself thought that the Earth didn't revolve around the sun due to gravity, but rather was pulled by a chariot being lead by magic elephants, nobody should be obligated to respect or take our idea seriously. This is the level of absurdity that we face when… Continue

I noticed that when speaking to people who are uneducated about science and not in the atheist circle creationism seems to be general knowledge. The typical creationist tosh like "if we came from apes why are there still apes?" seems to be a very common "logical" truth among them. People who do not actively go to church or mosque, let alone listen to Kent Hovind seem to naturally spout such arguments as "If evolution was true then shouldn't all animals be trying to become human?". That was an… Continue

I posted a youtube video about draw Mohamad day last week, and I got an interesting comment last night. I guess this person has seen some of my videos from before and knew I live or lived in Egypt. So they decided to threaten me that if I didn't remove the video that they would call the Egyptian police to have me arrested for insulting Mohamad. Theist are so small minded and small in general. How sad. I of course am keeping the video up and told the person to go fuck themselves.

This video proves that European Christians are just as stupid as American ones....but the fact that Fox News actually broadcasts this as "news" is just shameful.

There is an old Egyptian recipe for aged cheese that I enjoy making called mish. Today I made some and thought I would share with all of you how to make it as well. This is how you make it...it should be noted you can use whatever kinds of cheese you want, be creative, and add your favorite kinds...this is how I made it.
Take a 1 liter jar which can be sealed (The best are the glass ones with the metal screw tops)
8 Table spoons sour cream
1 Table spoon… Continue

This is one of the only times I have been happy about the spread of any religion. Here is why. Islam has gained so much favor in poor areas of China and is rapidly spreading. It's spreading so rapidly that soon there will be more Muslim Chinese than Muslim Arabs. What does that mean? Well it's already starting to happen, the Chinese are going to turn Islam over on it's head. It's inevitable that any culture which adopts another cultures customs or belief systems tweaks it to suit their own… Continue

Here is how creationist brainwash their kids and create future generations of thick-headed theist for us to argue with.

Every few months I forget how stupid my creationist relatives are and tell them about something new or exciting in evolutionary biology. I don't know why I do it, because every time it sparks a "discussion" for two hours that makes me face-palm every couple minutes. Last night my mother and I talked about evolution which was a monumental failure of a discussion.
The following mantra was repeated by her through out the conversation no matter what I said.

This is an amazon review of "Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin by a creationist. The best thing about creationist is they try to disprove evolution through stupidity and confuse organic beings with inanimate objects like cars. What is written below would be genius if it were satire.

Being Arab and from a Muslim family I always find it amusing when seemingly learned people defend my own people against me. In America it has become common for non-Muslims to cry bigot when Islam is criticized for the fear of appearing intolerant or "Islamophobic". It seem when we atheist criticize Christianity, or the Catholic church we may get a few disapproving glares but we are never called racist, intolerant, or bigoted. However, all of that changes when Islam is brought up. Suddenly… Continue

Below I've compiled a list of things said by fundies / creationist. It should be noted that these people or the ones they represent compose roughly 44% of America, and if that doesn't scare you I don't know what will.
1. [A fundie explanation of speciation]
Unicorns get off the Ark, gallop (or fly) to the southern regions of Pangaea, get pregnant, have tree sloths; gallop or fly to another part, get pregnant, have aardvarks. Continue

I was sitting at my desk earlier bored so I decided to entertain myself by going on DOS and ftp-ing myself to NCBI's genome database. I used the command line to get chromosomes 2a and 2b from the chimp (Pan troglodyte) and chromosome 2 from the human genome. I then ran the two against each other on BLAST to compare them for sequence similarties. Then I got a cookie, and diet coke.

Growing up I remember the sights, sounds, and smells of Egypt well, and always enjoy my time there. Sure the streets are dirty, there are a lot of poor, and there are more mosques than people but there is something cozy about Cairo that always makes me feel at home. The culture is all about food, avoiding work and responsibility, and sleeping in very late. Nothing there is convenient or legitimate, as everyone avoids responsibility and everyone takes a bribe. Despite it's third world tendencies… Continue
