Defending the Delusional

I will never understand why people defend the delusional.  In a recent religious debate, I threw out some offhanded comment about people holding delusional beliefs and was immediately attacked by someone claiming I was smug, because I clearly thought everyone but me was delusional.  Nope.  Here’s the definition of the word: A delusion is a […]






It’s All Arbitrary

If occurred to me, as all good things do, while I was petting my dog.  She’s just about 18 months old now and has clearly taken on the characteristics of both a chihuahua and dachshund.  Yes, she’s a chiweenie.  But that’s just arbitrary, as all dog breeds are, there is nothing fundamentally different between a […]






You’re Costing Us Money!

Seriously, I get sick and tired of websites complaining about ad blockers.  “We can’t survive if you don’t disable your ad blocker!”  Well then you should probably adopt a better business model, shouldn’t you? That’s the thing.  You adopt a particular business model and consumers decide if they will support you.  Now I don’t care […]






Liberals Making Excuses

I find it really sad to see how idiotic and blind the liberal left can be.  Case in point, in a recent discussion about MTV host Ira Madison III mocking Jeff Session’s Asian family, saying that his grandkids looked like he got them at Toys R Us, instead of just admitting that it was a […]






Fastest Way to Shut Christians Up

At least with regards to the existence of Jesus, I always point out that we simply have no objective evidence whatsoever that Jesus ever actually lived.  We have no forensic evidence, we have no contemporary eyewitness accounts, everything we have is myth and hearsay.  Christians don’t like that. Often, they will claim that if we […]






No Evidence For Jesus

I know I just wrote an article about this, but this happens to be an ongoing debate and I find it absolutely hysterical how it’s going down.  I argued that we don’t have any actual evidence for the existence of Jesus and watched the Christians come out of the woodwork screaming that there was. Oh […]






Can’t Change The Crazy

I don’t know why I bother sometimes.  I was having a recent discussion about religion and someone popped in and said that it was a complete waste of time to complain about the failures of religion because the religious will just be more motivated to cling to their beliefs anyhow. What’s the point, other than […]






Making Better Products

I’m on advisory panels for two different companies, a pet food manufacturer and a paint manufacturer, and I notice the exact same things about both of them.  Both companies are trying to find ways to make their products sell better, but they are not really interested in making their products actually better.  And I understand […]






People Die, Get Over It!

I write this just as I heard that Carrie Fisher has died and frankly, I don’t particularly care.  But to hear the collective whinging of the fanboys, you’d think the planet was ending.  And of course, this has been a year of people bitching and moaning that famous people have dropped dead so it’s nothing […]






Religious Belief and Charity

One of the things that comes up a lot around this time of year is that the religious are far more generous and charitable than the non-religious.  But that’s just not the case.  And it’s simply wrong because of the way that studies consider charitable giving.  In fact, they consider giving to a church to […]






Anti-Intellectual Religion

If you have any significant discussions with the religious, one thing that will smack you in the face is the anti-intellectual nature of religion.  It doesn’t matter if the theist is the most evangelical or the most liberal, they not only don’t care about the intellect, they actively campaign against it when it comes to […]






Religious Belief vs. Business

A lot of hardcore Christians seem to think that if they operate a business, they get to impose their personal religious beliefs on that business and that business can simply act as an extension of themselves, such that they don’t have to cater to anyone they don’t personally like.  These people are idiots. The reality […]






Nothing Worth Talking About

Recently, I was bored so I decided to stop in over at one of my old stomping grounds, the Debating Christianity & Religion forums.  Now I had walked away from it a while back because very little ever happened there, you really never got any decent debates and most people there on the religious side […]
