Region near Kaminak Lake, NU, from Google Earth

This is the first of what I hope to be a continuing series of blog posts about certain conspiracy theories and the joyous laughter I get from perusing them. I enjoy conspiracy theories in the same way that I enjoy certain other types of fiction. I’m not implying that there are never conspiracies between people …

Can You Feel the Righteous Love?

I could probably write a blog post every day based solely on articles found on WorldNetDaily (or WingNutDaily, as it is often called). There are actually some very good reasons for why I don’t do that, though. I probably wouldn’t get much done because of the imminent facepalm involved with reading most content on WND. …

They think that an amendment to …

Why Do I Even Bother?

FACEPALM - Because expressing how dumb that was in words just doesn't work.

Sometimes I have an exchange of words, comments, ideas, etc. with someone, and I am left wondering why I even bothered. I’d like to show you just such an exchange so that you can get an idea of why I feel this way at times. Twitter is an interesting medium for conversations. The limit of …

Why Do Atheists Seem So Angry?

The Stupid, It Burns - by Plognark

I sometimes see comments and questions wondering why atheists are, to some people’s eyes, very angry people. When I see those comments and questions, an excellent blog post by Greta Christina, Atheists and Anger, always comes to mind. Yes, we atheists are often angry.

Living in a Delusional World

*HEADDESK*

Terry Hurlbut (@Temlakos on Twitter) authors a column for Examiner.com called Creationism Examiner. On December 30th, 2010, Terry published an article entitled Creationism and science: wider implications. The article was brought to my attention in a post by PZ Myers at Pharyngula. I have, in the past, seen remarks about Biblical literalists attempting to “turn …
