*Tin foil cap on* Do you think the Catholic Church made the bible so long to discourage people from reading it?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nelson Mar 27, 2012. 1 Reply

I know nothing about the creation of the bible, so I admit it's unlikely conjecture.  It was just a funny thought that occurred to me while pondering the fact that so many christians know so little…Continue

You know you're an atheist when...

My friend and I came up with a few good ones today.  I googled the phrase, and only came up with Christians using it to (very poorly) mock atheism.  Let's show 'em how it's done.Continue

Firstly, what do you do?  Paint, sculpt, play music, write, photograph...? Secondly, if you want to create an artistic piece, do you force yourself to sit down and hammer it out? Do you wait for…Continue

"Well most alcohol, I don't. But I do really love the taste of vodka. It still needs to be mixed with something. But the combination of that with a coke is very refreshing and amazing to me. MMMmm hehe "

Well I do stir the pot on Youtube, although I've never gone into a specifically Christian forum.  I actually love having theists come here and make asses of themselves -> it makes a good public record of just how corrupt their epistemology really is.

Thanks for the add - AND for the compliments.  That is a great little exchange and I'm kinda liking my stance there at the moment, :D

Intellectual Convergence vs Divergence in Science and Religion

Posted on December 27, 2011 at 8:30am 1 Comment

So I was surfing youtube today, which included the usual cast of characters: Thunderf00t, Lawrence Krauss, Phil Hellenes, etc. And then, despite my better judgement, I decided to read the comments on a video. Of course, there wasn't anything of substance, but I did encounter a claim against science (not even "for god") that I hadn't come across before.  In a nutshell, the claim was this:  1) Scientists fall on both sides on whether global warming is natural or caused by people, 2)…

The Ledge - review (spoilers clearly marked)

Posted on July 4, 2011 at 5:27am 0 Comments

I just saw this film tonight.  Originally, I was typing a response to this blog, but my reply snowballed enough that I'd like to get a more direct response.
