Grinch Alert claims any business that acknowledges the existence of non-Christian religions is 'naughty'

Posted on December 7, 2010 at 11:31pm 2 Comments

I saw a news story tonight on a web site http://www.grinchalert.com that puts businesses on the 'naughty' list for saying things like Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas.
This site makes the assertion that if you so much as acknowledge the existence of religious holidays in December and non-religious holidays for that matter (like new year's), then you are somehow attacking Christianity. By simply not discriminating against…

Jesus! F*^K YEAH!

Posted on September 22, 2010 at 10:46pm 6 Comments

Every time I see the "Jesus fish" alpha symbol on a car or in a business logo, it makes me sad. I remember when this 'fish' always had WWJD in it. It's a question atheists have been trying to get Christians to ask themselves forever. What WOULD Jesus Do? It was at least thought provoking.
Now, we have the empty alpha/fish. Symbolically, more accurate (empty) but no longer thought-provoking. It has gone in a very short time from "hey, think about what you think Jesus stood for an try to…

Symphony of Science

I was listening to the Symphony of Science songs recently and I have a particular line stuck in my head.


"The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together."


Sometimes, a phrase runs you over like a truck. Maybe this one didn't do it for anyone else, but for me, thinking about exactly what was meant was fairly intense.


The way those atoms are put together initially…

Rationality Win!!!

Posted on April 8, 2010 at 11:00pm 9 Comments

I was reading FMyLife today and ran across this little gem... thought I'd share:


"Today, after church, my 5-year-old son asked me about God, so I answered his questions in full. We talked about God for over 2 hours. At the end of it all, he pondered for a moment, before saying to me "That's the stupidest thing I ever heard. You're dumb." FML"


Out-freaking-standing!
