Hope for the Aftermath of the Creation “Museum” Fundraiser Debate

Hope for the Aftermath of the Creation “Museum” Fundraiser Debate

Like many others, I am not thrilled about tonight’s Ham vs Nye debate. Others have expressed reasons far better than I can, the most cogent, in my opinion, being that no matter what happens, Ken Ham has won by being able to pocket all the money to support his “museum” and any other Answers in Genesis projects to obfuscate and lie in the name of godly education. This is a bad thin... »

Creation: Religion vs. Science

Creation: Religion vs. Science

One of the final entries in my ongoing series about atheism- this time addressing some of the differences between the Christian religious view of creation compared to the atheist view. It is by no means a comprehensive post- more of a handy overview of some of the key points of contrast- but I will link to more detailed posts at the end if you are interested in investigating this matter more thoro... »

Ken Ham: Children Are Belongings

Ken Ham: Children Are Belongings

After an incalculable (because I’m lazy) amount of time, I’m back to rant more about nonsense that fits under our umbrella!

Read on to find out more about the argument and enjoy my attempt to be fair and balanced- with the premise: “The Teleological argument may indeed fail as a formal proof of the existence of the divine being  but it has much to commend it as an expression of relig... »

Religion, Memes and Circular Logic: How Religion Invades People’s Minds

A theme that often comes up in religious debates — often with fellow non believers of some stripe and practically never with traditionalists or mainstream believers — is the idea that religion isn’t really harmful. Furthermore, there is the idea that religion isn’t really what motivates people. In this view, religion does no wrong because the individual’s psychology a... »

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Creation Science Edition

Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Creation Science Edition

In this week’s edition of Awesome Sauce Music Friday, we’re featuring someone you may not be too familiar with: Roy Zimmerman. I didn’t know who he was until relatively recently, but he’s quickly becoming one of my favorite satirical singer-songwriters. The politics of most of his catalogue is a little, shall we say, left of center. So if that’s not your thing, you mi... »
