Missouri House Resolution No. 2

Looks like this blatant political enshrinement of religion has gone under the radar in Missouri. So as of November, any student in Missouri can opt out of any assignment in the public school system…Continue

A secular victory in Egypt

The excellent outcome of the (virtually) bloodless revolution in Egypt should encourage all Arabic atheists. Egypt is 97 % Islamic but this was clearly not an Islamic revolution. It was entirely…Continue

Four Reasons Why Religion Can Never be Reconciled with Science

Posted on February 26, 2012 at 6:48am 3 Comments

I listened to Weekend Edition on NPR radio one day in January, 2012 and thought for a moment I was tuned to the wrong station.  Rachel Martin’s interview with Alvin Plantinga was such a pile of softball pandering to Christian mythology I found myself smacking my forehead in disbelief.

Plantinga, a self-proclaimed Christian, begins by professing his discomfort with science being at odds with his religion – essentially admitting his goal is to find some way to defend his faith by…

Greetings, J.P.M.! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

All the 'Islamophobia' in the news these days is quite amusing to me - especially since it is all being pushed by right-wing Christian nut-jobs. After all, is their any meaningful difference between Islam and Christianity? They're both ridiculous mythologies multiply translated from the oral traditions of a bunch of illiterate, stone-age peasants that lived somewhere in the Middle East 2000 years ago. Principles shared: monotheism, homophobia, evolution denial, mistrust of science, afterlife myths (including preposterous reward scenarios for the faithful), blood sacrifice, countless ridiculous ceremonies and rituals. I could go on, but you get the idea...

Entomologist have had to do a lot more explaining of job titles since the Lord of the Rings movie came out. It could be worse--a friend of mine married a micro-biologist, and now people keep asking him exactly how small his wife is...
Thanks for the NYT link on Pakistan's Facebook ban. I'm collecting them for an article elsewhere on the web.

Thanks, but I prefer single-malt scotch to barbiturates!

"Religious education is an oxymoron"

There's an "oxycodone" joke in there SOMEWHERE....

Hey J.P.M.,

Thanks for the comment but . . . my avatar is not Photoshopped -- that guy really has a snake going in and out of his face!

Sure! I'll take a AN friend in Kansas.

Thanks :) That was pretty hilarious! Unintelligent design indeed.

Oh that is so cool! I never thought of that. I bet this would be very difficult to do, but you could track backwards in clonal populations and determine when/how far back the somatic mutations occurred and perhaps what correlating environmental changes triggered them. Of course, that is just being theoretical :P That would require some serious sequencing of the genomes. You could just as easily go forward with it though and determine if certain environmental stresses cause a subset of mutations. Not sure what use that would have, but it would be interesting!

Lol, I think just reading about that was rather traumatic actually.

But that's what I am saying. It couldn't possibly be intelligent design because it's imperfect and thus unintelligent. Not to mention, we don't need to look to bed bugs to see the flaws, what about human bodies? Having a waste disposal system in the middle of a pleasure center, what a terrible idea :P
