It's Over

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.18



It's official. America is a Theocracy.



Yesterday we lost the right to challenge executive-branch government spending. The Supreme Court ruled that we can't even challenge "faith-based initiatives." For 7 years, our joke of a president has been holding prayer breakfasts, faith-based lunches, and dinners with the leaders of every major denomination of America's Official Religion, Christianity™. The money… Continue

Pete Stark, I Salute You

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.18



I don't think many people realize how amazingly important it was that Pete Stark admitted his godlessness. It's a lot like the episode of Ellen when she "came out" on the show. It's completely unprecedented, and it opens the door for other politicians to do the same. There are atheist… Continue

I Hate This

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.17



I have a bad memory, but this is the best I can remember.



So today I went to lunch with a few people from work, and everything was going fine until the way home. It turned into a typical "Christian-who's-never-met-an-atheist" conversation. I was riding with two female co-workers, Mary, who is a Deist and Annie, a Christian. Mary mentioned something about her bad luck, and said it was a bad sign "if you believe in… Continue

This Is Infuriating

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.17



Today my wife and I went down to the license department at Parkway Place to get new plates. We waited in line for an hour or so, and went to our respective clerks. My clerk asked me if I wanted "the new God Bless America tag" or "the old one?" I said I'd actually rather have the Saturn V tag, which costs $50, but my dad worked on the Saturn V, and the proceeds go to the Saturn V Restoration Project. So I got that one. We… Continue

This is a beautiful article from The New York Times. It nearly brought a tear to my eye.

First Post Is a Happy One

Oh, happy day. Kansas has officially stopped teaching superstition. I would be more excited except that this should never have been an issue in the FIRST place.

The Meat Thinks: On the Ineradicability of Religion; a Modest Proposal

“I used to think my brain was the most wonderful organ in the universe. Then I realized who was telling me this.”

Emo Phillips

(From a fictional exchange between two extraterrestrial intelligent machines, regarding the dominant life-form on Earth:)

“So…what does the thinking?”

“You’re not understanding, are you? The brain does the thinking. The meat.”

“Thinking meat! You’re asking me to believe in thinking meat.”

“Yes, thinking meat. …

Taco Bell Showdown!

Okay, maybe not a showdown, persay, but still awesome...



I went to Taco Bell today because I was hungry and wanted to try the new XXL Chalupa (for the record, it is fucking awesome).



Anyways, it was pretty busy. The store itself was pretty full (I was getting my food to go, though, so I wasn't looking for a seat). Luckily, there was only one guy in front of me. There was a 6-person family in front of him, but they had already started ordering when I got in line. 4 other… Continue

The truth about Christianity.

There are dozens of offshoots of Christianity: Catholicism, Protestantism, Greek Orthodoxy, Jesuit churches, Baptist churches, Latter-Day Saints, Eastern Orthodoxy, Evangelism (Born-Again churches), Mormonism, Branch-Davidian churches, Methodist churches, ad infinitum. These are all separate churches (schools of thought) dealing with the same faith; the same holy book - that book being the Bible.



Now, you'd think that - if the Holy Bible is the true and infallible word of God - there… Continue
