English feminism

Well, English feminism has finally reached the zenith of idiocy. The current cause celebre is a campaign to overthrow the rule of primogeniture in the royal family. This is amazing. Middle class English feminists are really vexed by the blatant gender...

Nothing

The religious like to say that nothing can come from nothing, forgetting precisely that they claim that their god created the universe from nothing. Anyhow, here is a lecture from Lawrence Krauss, who discusses the universe with knowledge and great...

Super powers

All Christians have super powers. They can do anything they want. Superman has nothing on the believers. How do I know this? You may well ask. But the answer is simple and close to hand. For it is written in the holy, inerrant word of god. Jesus,...

Professor Fallon

I do not know if you are familiar with the work of James Fallon. However, it is interesting to say the least. See, he was one of the people who took the view that genes were destiny. He worked hard and developed a reputation in his field. His work...

God intervenes

This is really funny. Fox captures god intervening, smiting the godless atheists down :)

Hitler's Hero

Some people like to pretend that Hitler was influenced by Charles Darwin's theory of evolution and that this was the cause of the Holocaust, but it was not so. In fact, Darwin's books were banned under Hitler. Indeed, Hitler was ignorant of the theory...

Table Talk

Christian Apologists love to represent Adolf Hitler as though he were not a Christian. They love to trot out quotes where he says something against Christianity. All of these quotes come from one source. It is called 'Table Talk' and was edited by...

Education for a creationist

Creationists love to talk about the fossil record, but they do so from a position of ignorance. So in an attempt to help them out in their search for the truth, here is a lecture by Donald Prothero, who talks one through the basic fossil record. ...

Land of Myth

Many people live in the land of myth. This is a fabulous world, literally. It is a world of fable, fiction and half truths. It is a land that is impenetrable to evidence and reason. And it is not located in some and distant place. It is here and now....

La Scimmia

Il signor Brown era il genere di persona che era nato apparentemente essere un zerbino. Tutta la sua vita, tutta che si incontri mai, anche per il più momentaneo dei momenti, sembrato sapere istintivamente che potrebbe essere usato ed abusato e...

Easter quiz: the answers

The Easter quiz produced more disputes than entries. However, for those interested, here are the answers.   1    At what hour was Jesus crucified? Jesus was crucified at the third hour. Mark 15:25. Jesus was not crucified until the sixth hour....

Easter quiz

There was a recent survey that showed that atheists know far more about religion than the religious. So here is an opportunity for all you godless people to show just how knowledgable you really are: an Easter quiz. Oh, and any theists who wish to...

Pretty funny, when you think about it

Projection is a well known psychological phenomenon. The term refers to someone projecting their own flaws onto another as an accusation. Now one does not need to spend much time listening to Christians talking about atheists to see how quick they are...

Sins of religion?

So what is wrong with religion? Let's count, shall we? 1.        Religion inculcates the notion that believing something is true without or against evidence is the supreme good. 2.        Religion substitutes authority for morality. 3.  ...

Relativity and Relativism

  Relativism is highly fashionable in the Western world. This is particularly, and strangely, so amongst the more educated members of our democracies. We see examples of such relativism all around us. Here in England, Muslims have been allowed...

Doctor of Disbelief

A PhD in disbelief. What a neat idea. The antidote to all those Bible degree mills that churn out doctoral degrees for the likes of Kent Hovind (by the way, his doctoral thesis is a hoot). Anyhow, should you be interested in being awarded the degree...

Professions of belief

Belief in god is far less prevalent than many people think. Lots of people profess to believe in god, when in fact they do not. You may perhaps be wondering how I know this to be the case? Well there are examples and evidence of this all around. Here...

How many acts of creation?

There are approximately ten million species currently alive. It is also estimated that over ninety-nine point nine percent of all the species that have ever existed are already extinct. That is a lot of species. It means that ten million is at most...

Are you an ape or not?

Some people like to assert that homo sapiens are not apes and do not share a common ancestor with the apes. They like to claim that human beings are special, unique. I am, of course, referring to the creationists. However, beyond mere assertion, the...

Fooling oneself

Should you ever get into, what we may charitably call, a discussion with a theist, and you express disbelief in the existence of their god, it is only a matter of time before they come up with the 'You can't prove god doesn't exist,' line. It is clear...
