There Will Be War.

“I believe in world peace. I believe it is possible.” – Every politician or beauty pageant contestant ever. Highly unlikely. That’s not to say that it wouldn’t be desirable. It’s just not going to happen. Even in an idealistic world where everyone had enough food, followed the Golden Rule, did not covet status, wealth or … Continue reading

The Bitching of a Spoiled Child: Catholic Leader Wants Entitlement Back!

I’ve become increasingly nervous for Britain (and many pockets of Europe) over recent years because of the hotpot of Islamism that seems to be simmering and splattering out into society there, so I find the whinings of British Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor to be particularly reassuring. In a nutshell, Murphy-O’Connor is bitching that religion is being … Continue reading

Ellen Johnson: Not a Great Atheist Representative, IMO

As some readers may already know, American Atheists has dismissed Ellen Johnson as its President. In hearing about this, I decided to check out a few Johnson YouTube videos, as I hadn’t done so in quite some time.

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

Ben Stein and Glenn Beck: Ignorance, Deceit and Stupidity, OH MY!

Nothing I say short of quoting them directly could prepare you for the profound levels of ignorance you are about to hear. Stein and Beck’s ignorance of and/or deliberate deceit with respect to science, evolution, atheism and morality are absolutely depressing.
