David Barton, the über-right-wing’s darling ‘historian’ is a liar. What’s worse is that he’s a liar for Jesus. He and his ilk will stop at nothing to rewrite the history of our nation to reflect their own ideas about the way things should have been. They long for a place and time that never existed. …

Shit Stains on the Underwear of Humanity, № 2

This series of posts points out entities I encounter on the Internet which I find to be more ignorant than average, more worthy of a facepalm, and generally unaware of the hideously misguided appearance they present to the Internet at large. This, my second post in the series, highlights an individual I only encountered briefly …

Many people in his community are wishing that he weren’t graduating, or that he kept his mouth shut, or that he went to school elsewhere, or that he simply didn’t exist. You see; Damon is an atheist. As Damon explained …

It seems that Chris and Sheril have written a nice little op-ed piece for the LA Times, called “Must science declare a holy war on religion?“. I find it very telling that their piece …

Why can’t some Christians understand the concept of “Burden of Proof”?

Burden of Proof. You’ve seen that phrase before, I’m sure. It can be used in different ways, depending on the context. If you happen to be discussing a legal case in the United States, it has a particular meaning. However, in this case I’d like to discuss the term in the context of logical arguments, …
