"Atheists go ballistic" over up coming debate. Bollocks!

So while I was trolling the Evolution is a Lie Facebook page I came across a link on Ken Ham's discussion about his up coming debate against Bill Nye. Needless to say I was choking on my tea within the first few lines of his post. 

According to him, atheists are going mad about the discussion and many are 'calling on Bill Nye to cancel'. He then quoted a few of these people who were urging Bill to…

Help needed

Hey good people, here, I have been having a discussion with an anon gentleman going by the moniker j.w who I think lives on this side of the blue ball. 

The discussion, so far has covered several issues among them how the universe came to be, historicity of Jesus, a bit on god and a major part has been on evolution and it is here that I need some help. I have in my responses tried to explain evolution as I…

The Adair Institute

I was first introduced to Robert O Adair while writing on Associated Content. He introduced himself to me with several rude comments and this message;

 

“Does it ever occur to you that the victims of your solipsistic, nihilistic, intellectually bankrupt anti-philosophy might deeply resent it?…

Noah's Ark

I was having a bit of a debate with a creationist on Twitter yesterday and it got round to Noah and his Ark. I questioned the logistics of it and I got a fantastically stupid reply. So I was compelled to make it into a comic. Hope you enjoy.

Welcome to our Semi-Dark Age: The Darkness Strikes Back

I've begun a series of video-essays on YouTube titled "Welcome to our Semi-Dark Age". The first episode is now up (in three parts, due to time-length restrictions by YouTube) - hopefully, my skills at video recording/editing will improve as I make more videos. Similarly, my pronunciation of English words remains a work in progress ... In any case, I've embedded herein the three videos of this first episode of the series, titled…

Do Moderate Christians Need an "Adam"?

Jesus and Adam  Previously, I discussed the idea that we can now definitively show that there was no single couple from which all of humanity descended, and discussed a few points made by ProfMTH, namely that Paul references Adam in same way he references Jesus. To me, this seemed a clear and inescapable contradiction to a foundational principle of Christianity, since Paul is obviously wrong in referencing Adam. Now this assertion faced…

Rick Perry Fears The Lord. I Fear Rick Perry.

Republican presidential wannabe Rick Perry has no regard for science, alleging that man-made global warming is a hoax, and that creationism ought to be taught in classrooms. Here are some of his Godly ravings. Let them be a warning. And what does it say about the US political system that things get so bad that (nearly) every Republican front runner has to be a moron and that the Republicans aren't political pariahs despite this? Amongst the Republican candidates the only ones that believe in…

To sign the petition you have to be a UK citizen or resident, so if you are or know of any, please sign it or make them aware of it, respectively.…

Creationism again rears its ugly head

Texas leaders debate teaching creationism in schools.



http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/07/22/us-creationism-texas-idUSTRE76L07Q20110722



Debate? The debate is over. creationism and 'intelligent design' are anti-science coupled with irresponsible dogmatic religion. The only teaching of the pseudoscience of creationism and 'intelligent design' is best done as a historical and… Continue

Old-Earth Creationists

I stumbled upon an old earth creationist website while looking up theories on the extinction of neanderthals.

Here is a summary of their main points:

It's not enough to convince me, but I had not heard of this stance before.  I looked around and one of the authors is a biochemist who is involved in research which is attempting to…

Teaching Creationism and the Nobel Prize

Just some random thoughts I had while in the shower which I, of course, took while wearing a bathing suit because, as we all know, god cannot tolerate nudity.



Obviously, some time has passed since President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. But the thought only came into my head just today - how many people who believe that Creationism/Intelligent Design should be taught in schools and NOT evolution were also upset that Obama won the Peace prize. Personally, I don't think they should… Continue

Life, the universe, and everything

As an opener I'd like to state that my worldview has absolutely nothing to do with my atheism. I like to think that were I a theist I would still hold life, the universe, and everything in exactly the same regards. This post is not intended to answer any questions about nor explain my view on theism. Correlation does not imply causation. That being said, let us proceed.

 

Where did we…

Giving Creationism Appropriate Time in the Classroom

We hear a lot about how since there are working scientists who are critics of the theory of evolution through natural selection, it is a contradiction of our values of tolerance and skepticism to confine science teaching in high schools to ... um ... science. OK, if we want to put science curriculum up for a vote, let's calculate out how much time we should spend in high school science class in order to give these critics their due.



Let's look at the data. According to the Census… Continue

The Seedy Religious Underbelly of South Africa

In the last couple of years I have experienced a gradual but rude awakening to the grizzly, spine-tingling reality of South Africa's religious situation.



The existence of Bible translations into KiSwahili, isiXhosa, Zulu, Chichewa, Tswana, Shona etc is frightening. African cultures notoriously cling to superstitions as well as ancestral and tribal beliefs. Combining this with Christianity is resulting in an ongoing history of bad ideas. I have covered many of these issues before, but… Continue

"The importance of secular education" from Atheist Climber Blog

From Atheist Climber blog



As a child I was often told I had a vivid imagination, one that was filled with wonder and fantasy, and I loved the stories my parents would read to me. But I learned at a very young age that monsters and leprechauns were not real. While my imagination was allowed to flourish, my inquisitive nature was such that if I wanted to know about something, I was always… Continue

Origin of Species...

I think there's a reason I tend to identify more with IT professionals than I do with mechanical engineers. *sigh* IT professionals tend to be (for the most part) more free thinking individuals. So forced into logical thinking and creativity purely to do their jobs are they, that they…
