Responding to an ID-Sympathizing Blogger

On his blog Vere Loqui – which I like the title of, Martin Cothran wrote: L. Ron Brown at “The Frame Problem” takes Ben Stein to task for making careless remarks about science on the Glenn Beck show. Of course Brown employs the usual array of hyperbolic terms favored by Darwinists in such cases to … Continue reading

On personal spiritualism and liberal religiosity

A little while back a friend asked me if I thought that recent violent acts by religious fundamentalists have stained the benefits of interiorized spirituality. Since this is a good question and one at the heart of much of my thinking on religion and “spirituality” (I’ll explain the shutter quotes later), I figured I’d make … Continue reading

Ben Stein is Sexpelled: No Intercourse Allowed (Expelled parody)

The Scienazis are at it again. It wasn’t enough for them to suppress the highly tenable and definitely scientific approach that is Intelligent Design (and certainly not Creationism). Now they’re suppressing the equally meritorious stork theory of reproduction. Stork theory, a totally viable alternative to the sex theory (which is just a theory) of reproduction, … Continue reading

Richard Dawkins on Bill Maher (April 11, 2008)

Dawkins and Maher discuss the popularity of books such as Dawkins’ “The God Delusion”, as well as other recent anti-faith books by authors such as Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens, the brightness of Francis Collins – evangelical Christian and esteemed geneticist, and the possibility of a death-bed conversion by Dawkins.

PZ Myers EXPELLED from Expelled!?!?

A number of blogs have already commented on this unsurprising bit of irony: the makers of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (an upcoming Intelligent Design/Creationist crocumentary attempting to cast mainstream science – and evolutionary science in particular – as a dogmatic and somewhat totalitarianesque regime, to misrepresent evolutionary biology and the research behind it, and to … Continue reading

Expelled: No Intelligent Flying Spaghetti Monsters Allowed

I’m mad. Flaming mad! I thought the scientific community was about academic freedom, following the evidence wherever it leads, and expelling dogmatism. That was until I saw this documentary preview. I was wrong. The scientific community that I had long trusted and respected has been usurped by Darwinist dogmatists. Richard Dawkins may be Darwin’s Rottweiler, … Continue reading

Baptist fundamentalists hold mock Richard Dawkins funeral, burn him in effigy

On February 1st, some psychotic delusionals of the Baptist fundamentalist variety held a mock funeral for Richard Dawkins. During the service, Dawkins was admonished to repent to the lord or that he will burn for all eternity. He was then condemned for his disbelief, immediately before an effigy of Dawkins was set in flames by … Continue reading

Calling all secular bloggers: Join the online opposition of WLUSU denial of the Laurier Freethought Association

Over the past few days Anatoly Venovcev, Tyler Handley and I have been working hard to spread the word about Wilfrid Laurier University Student Union’s decision to deny group status to Venovcev, Handley et al’s Laurier Freethought Association. Click here for the full story. The outpouring of support from the blogosphere has been fantastic! Here … Continue reading

Richard Dawkins at TED 2002: Laying the ground work for the atheist/rationalist movement

A reader, Stuart, recommended that I post the video of Richard Dawkins at TED 2002. While many readers will have already seen this footage, it is highly recommended for those that have not (particularly for those not particularly up-to-date on the issues behind the push for secularism and reason in all corners of human contemplation). … Continue reading

Could we hold the ultimate atheist conference?!

Hemant Mehta, the Friendly Atheist, best known for having sold his soul on eBay, has opened discussion on the topic of having a MAJOR atheist/nontheist/secularist/humanist/freethinker conference in 2010. The conference would bring people from across the continent together to meet, network, exchange ideas, establish new directions and concerns for secular activism, and show Washington, the … Continue reading
