It really is beyond just annoying when folks choose to grace the front page of a|n with their blogging wisdom, and then proceed to lock all commentary when it deviates from what they wish to hear. It really is the ultimate expression of weeniedom. The original blog entry can be seen here
and is worth a look to grasp the whole context. It starts off quite vigorously -…

What about those darn Extraterrestrials?
Y'know, this is more than a tad annoying, and it's not the first time it's happened. If you want to post an article making extraordinary claims, you should -
a) provide extraordinary evidence, and
b) not lock it so you can control what commentary is permissable regarding it
: Listen carefully to the first… Continue

Make all your html nightmares come to life. Test your widgets and embedded code disasters. Admin rights for whoever wants them - totally destroy the admin options. Do it here, where it doesn't matter how much you screw up.

To the best of my knowledge, Helen Ukpabio and Nigeria's Liberty Gospel Church haven't been posted about here before (hint: it's considerate to do a search for existing discussions before generating a whole new one. Both 'Hitler' and 'abortion' have shelf lives
). Child witches in Africa have been discussed
, but Liberty Gospel takes the horror and idiocy to a whole new level. I am pretty speechless.… Continue

I've used a standard question to throw voodoo spooks when they start babbling excessively for many years now (so long I can't cite the original idea) -
Why aren't there any psychics barred from casinos ?
Surely, if casinos can instantly spot and eject card counters, it shouldn't be too hard to deal with psychics ?
More recently, I've come up with another one -

Follows young Hasidic Jews aged 18 – 25 in Montreal, New York and Jerusalem who decide they can no longer live in their ultra orthodox communities, so they venture into the secular world. To do so they have to turn their backs on their relationships with their parents and their siblings.

Language corruption by the stupid is a fact of life, but enough is enough.
Overuse, abuse and misuse of the term "troll" has become endemic. More disturbingly, it has begun to have a distinct McCarthyist slant to it. It has come to have no relation to it's original meaning, and has become a term to attempt to silence criticism by slander, insinuation and guilt by association.
What a troll is -…

Both creationism and environmental denial are almost daily news. Their vile triplet, anti-vaccination crusading, hasn't reached quite the same level yet, but this article is a fascinating read -

Everything Justine Rodrigues
is now set to private, which isn't really fair when posting into the main public space. "Justine" is also lazy - this is an obvious copy-n-paste theft, pretty obvious because the genuine pea-brain only stands out in the subject line which was manually typed. Unless it was intentional
. Assuming it's not, this post really needs some… Continue

Julian relates the following anecdote: "Once when Diogenes was in a crowd of people, a certain youth farted. Diogenes poked him with his staff and said, 'And so, vile wretch, though you have done nothing that would give you the right to take such liberties in public, are you beginning here and now to show your scorn of opinion ?'" Here Diogenes himself explains indirectly the Cynic method for criticizing conventional opinion: he regards the fart as social comment, equal to outspokenness or… Continue

Or, (Occam's razor)^-1, the flipside.
The jury is out as to whether a brutal encounter with tragedy flips a person into religiosity or atheism - I don't think its a debate that will ever be settled, because I don't think there is an answer. It all depends on each individual's wiring. That thing that happened on 9/11 pushed me from indifferent agnosticism, to committed atheism with the realisation that there is nothing harmless about religion - that it is capable of… Continue
