Avoiding Ferguson No More

I’ve purposely not addressed the Ferguson shooting, I’ve carefully avoided talking about Michael Brown and Darren Wilson and the whole nonsense that arose following both the shooting itself and the Grand Jury announcement.  For one, it doesn’t matter, it’s just been children acting like children and people taking advantage of a situation to riot and […]






When Crazies Attack

You know what makes me really shake my head?  Watching theists sit around and argue over theology, especially when you get people with entirely different theological positions who are convinced that everyone but themselves are wrong.  It reminds me a lot of a bunch of 9/11 conspiracy nuts sitting around bitching about the minutia of […]






Arguing Free Will is Religious

There are a lot of subjects that I really don’t like to talk about, not because I can’t, but because people on the other side really haven’t got a clue what they’re talking about and they’re often very emotionally attached to one side or the other.  One of those subjects is abortion, another is natural […]






Are Theists Stupid?

On a recent Atheist Experience, they talked briefly about their disagreement with calling the religious stupid, saying that the religious can be just as smart as non-theists.  Well, yes and no.  Certainly, with regard to their theism, theists are not as smart as non-theists because they believe in irrational things. They can be bright outside […]






Extinction Happens

You know, I get rather sick of seeing conservationists, typically very liberal conservationists at that, whining about how man is ruining the planet and killing off species and we should all be horrified at ourselves because species are dying because of our evil machinations on the planet.  Well guess what?  That’s evolution!  Species die off […]






What the Hell is Wrong with Feminists?

There’s apparently a big bruhaha going on over a Subway commercial where women are told to stop eating burgers and presumably eat Subway so that they’ll fit into sexy Halloween costumes.  There are women out there whining about how sexist it is that they’re expected to wear sexy costumes! How dare anyone suggest that! Well, […]






The Whine For The Win!

People whine about the stupidest things, this time out, we’re going to talk about modern cars and the “fact” that people “can’t” work on their own car.  This was brought up by an article, written by Steven Lang, over on Yahoo Autos, where he whines about 7 reasons that people “can’t” work on their own cars. Of […]






Opinions vs. Statements of Fact

The recent discussion on natural rights has resulted in yet another concept that libertarians and others of their ilk don’t seem to get.  See, there was one libertarian who was honest and admitted that “natural rights” was just his opinion.  Well no, it’s really not because for every single natural-rights advocate I’ve ever come across, […]






The Religion of Natural Rights

I always find it amusing whenever a discussion about natural rights pops up because the typically libertarian adherents have to resort to quasi-religious means to have any hope whatsoever in justifying the concept.  Recently, yet another of these fun topics reared its ugly head and, like clockwork, the libertarians leapt into the fray, declaring, without […]






Are People Getting Dumber?

Thanks to reader njmcc for pointing this out to me.  I’m honestly confused at how dumb some people are.  George Carlin once said “Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.” I think he was right on the money and the more that we see of humanity, […]






Suicide and the Art of Outrage

The Atheist Revolution had an interesting article today about Robin Williams’ suicide and the subsequent uproar from the collective Internet over comments made by Shepard Smith.  I was totally unaware of any of this, of course, because I don’t pay attention to the constant whine coming from the online community.  I’m fine with suicide, as […]






The Bizarre Nature of Liberal Thinking

Seriously, I could make this a series.  I know I’ve talked about it before a couple of  times, but it continues to amaze me how liberals can get things so utterly and completely wrong.  I know it shouldn’t, after all, I talk to theists who are just as clueless, no matter how many times you […]






Axiom For The Win!

It seems to me that there are a few topics that lend themselves to axiomatic victories.  People who argue these aren’t really interested in demonstrating that they are true, they simply insist that they are and move on from there.  They start with the conclusion that everything they believe is right and look for evidence, […]






Twenty Not-So-Good Arguments For Christianity

There’s a real idiot on Twitter named Peter Saunders and he spams the #atheism hashtag with his laughable blog articles, supposedly proving the validity of Christianity.  He doesn’t respond to criticism, he doesn’t acknowledge his errors, he just dumps crap into the hashtag in hopes that someone might take him seriously. Recently, I saw an […]






The Woo is Strong in This One

I was recently having a conversation with someone who is completely in love with various medical woo claims, from homeopathic nonsense to poking yourself with needles to chiropractic stupidity.  All of the failures of these various and sundry woo claims don’t work on him, he’s convinced that these things must work because credulous people that […]






The Law Applies to All, Larry

We’ve talked in the past, particularly on the podcast, about the new “reality” show on National Geographic called “Snake Salvation”, where pastor Andrew Hamblin and his minuscule church of a dozen or so Christian crazies handle snakes and other nutty things because they think that’s what the Bible tells them to do. However, what they […]






The Stupidity of Telemarketers

I have a problem with telemarketers.  I hate them and they’re stupid.  Think that’s mean?  It’s not, honestly.  For one thing, I’ve been on the Federal No-Call List since the thing existed and it doesn’t mean a damn thing and the telemarketers know it.  I’ve even had them laugh in my face when I told […]






Too Dumb to Debate

I find it funny how much flack I get for saying that debating theists is a waste of time, but time and time again, I find that with the religious, its just pointless to engage in any kind of intellectual religious discussion, they just don’t comprehend the basics and dragging them, kicking and screaming, through […]






Castrate Yourself for Christ!

Now this would normally end up in the Religious Horror Show, but it’s a practice that’s since gone out of style and I try to limit my Sunday stories to things in the recent news.  This just goes to show how utterly insane religious beliefs can be when they take complete and utter leave of […]
