Okay so I'm at my girlfriends mother's home. We have Xmas early because she has to work on Xmas day. So we go to her mother's to celebrate earlly. Family comes over and so on.

So later that night I turn on the History Channel. I'm a guy, right? It's all we ever watch unless there is a game on. Ask any women, they'll tell you this is true. Must be written in stone somewhere.

So I'm watching this show about the Garden of Eden. Guy says it was located once where the Persian Gulf is. Ok.… Continue

So who else fucked up their Christmas?

Hello world.

I live in a country where people assume you're a Catholic by default. If I lived in, say, America, I probably wouldn't be just as uncomfortable with celebrating Christmas as I am here. There, it's about trees, presents and Santa. Here, its all about the Baby Jeeezus, and the boring, monotonous, infantile carols that you can't escape from, because they are played on every radio station, sung on the television, and butchered by your raving fundie grandmother.

I… Continue

Merry Christmas from an atheist

I don't care what you call it... Christmas, Imbolc, Hanukkah, whatever. I'm still going to celebrate the holiday as I see fit, which will include a healthy mixture of food, intoxication and laziness. I will devote not one erg of my emotional or cognitive energy to imagining the existence of either Santa Claus or the Baby Jesus. They are archetypal stories, finely-resolved expulsions from the figurative-collective unconscious, but that's about all the import they carry for me. I don't have to… Continue

Did an angel save girl from dying in hospital?

I have my own question: Does God and his angel choose who they want to heal?

My question arose when it was reported that "A 14-year-old girl with a history of serious health issues lay dying of pneumonia in a hospital room. But as her mother waited for the girl to take her last breath, an image of bright light appeared on a security monitor. Within an hour, the dying girl began a recovery that doctors are at a loss to explain."…

No Church for My Littles

First, a little background.

My parents are Catholic. I was raised as such and went to Catholic school from 5th grade to 8th grade (which I partially credit for my current atheism, ironically enough).

My wife and I are both atheists now, but were obviously not always so.

At one point early on my parents asked my wife, "Do you believe in God?"

To which she succinctly answered, "Not the Judeo-Christian anthropomorphic God, no."

Parents, "But you believe in… Continue

Franken appears to be winning

Although very slowly…

When I went out of town recently I’d assumed this Minnesota recount business was going to be resolved by now. Seriously, how long does it take to hand-count ballots? Weeks? Really?

I suspect it would have been finished by now, if the GOP would just shut up and stop trying to challenge and suppress every ballot in sight. I always find it humorous how the GOP won’t shut up about the sanctity of the democratic process, until it comes time to actually… Continue

This time of year floods me with people who suddenly want to pray. If I hear another conjugation of the word pray, I definitely will explode. That word is grating on me like fingernails across a chalkboard. Prayer, to me, is actively doing nothing yet giving the false illusion of doing something. When someone says they will pray for me, I feel insulted. Why can't the person take action and do something rather than copping-out, passing the buck, and hoping someone else takes… Continue

Primordial Haze: a new vision of the early Earth

For people who study the Archean Earth - our world as it was from about 4.0 billion to 2.5 billion years ago - the Sun has always been a problem. More specifically, the young and dimmer Sun that shone down on our planet during the Archean. Three billion years ago the Sun was about 80% as bright as it is now, meaning that Earth received only 80% as much energy and should have been a lot colder... cold enough for more or less non-stop global glaciation. But Earth wasn't frozen, then. Earth in the… Continue

Pants-on-fire parenting

Economist VILFREDO PARETO, referring to the errors of Kepler


In 1847, around the time Pareto was conceived, an obstetrician by the name of Ignaz Semmelweis noticed that pregnant women in his hospital were much more likely to die if their babies were delivered by doctors than by… Continue

You're a sinner!

Taken from my blog:

Earlier tonight I turned on the tv while getting a snack and landed on the history channel. For those of you who haven’t watched the history channel for years, they have slowly devolved from focusing on history to focusing on either the apocalypse, aliens, or the bible. A commercial flashed across the screen that made my cereal loose it’s tasty sugary goodness. The commerical: “Do you like to eat? Are you desirous of a… Continue

So the Pope goes to heaven...

You may have seen this but its new to me.


The Pope arrives in heaven, where St. Peter awaites him. St. Peter asks the Pope who he is.

The Pope : I am the Pope.

St. Peter: Who? There's no such name in my book.

The Pope : I'm the representative of God on Earth.

St. Peter: Does God have a representative? He didn't tell me...

The Pope : But I am the leader of the Catholic… Continue

A Special Solstice

It's really special this time of year. Day and night will match in length, and even though the days will get longer, it will get colder because of the delay.

The ground and water cool slower than the changes in radiant energy from the sun, so weather will become worse during a short period following the solstice.

in certain areas, the differences in temperature between the air and the ground are the most extreme during this period.

Today it was exactly zero… Continue

The National Academy of Sciences needs YOU

To help it understand what scientific issues the public cares most about. Please take a minute - literally, it only takes a minute - to fill out this online form for the National Academy of Sciences. And don’t hesitate to add your own suggestions for topics they didn’t include. I suggested they add “evolution of life” as a topic…. better understanding of that is sorely needed in the… Continue

"How Evolution Flunked the Science Test"

"Recently I talked to a man with a fantastic amount of faith. Not one shade of doubt crept into his animated description of man's origin and destiny. He was an evolutionist I met on an airplane. With incredible confidence he bridged the eons of prehistoric time to explain the… Continue

Intelligent Design’s Place? (reposted but not improved on)

"Why not teach an alternative to Evolution in the class room, why not teach Intelligent Design?" They ask....Turn this around, 'Why should alternatives to Evolution be taught, why teach Intelligent Design?' Just because it is the opinion of any scientists that Intelligent Design could be true does not make IDH a scientific idea. "Show me the evidence" is what Science is saying. "Prove the Creator" otherwise the universe is just a stack of fantastic probability. The mechanical nature of the… Continue
