A recent article in many papers in Australia, highlight a rise in illegal homeschooling practices.
Though even those Christian homeschooling groups claiming legality are suspicious as I've found references to extremely delusional drivel in books by nutjob… Continue

I particularly like this review of the Movie:
"I’ve never been more insulted watching a film before. The universe created by Rich and David Christiano contains Christian characters who are so vapid and unaware, so unintelligent and clueless that they could have been created by atheists trying to spoof the intelligence of Christians. Likewise, the atheists in the film are so clueless as to their own ability to properly explain… Continue

The US government should declare Young Earth Creationism as a danger to the minds of U.S. citizens and ban it as "Information Terrorism".
As Young Earth Creationism and its offshoot, Intelligent Design, is anti-information and anti-knowledge which as in Terrorism, they use fear and intimidation to gain converts and indoctrinate children.
Even Ken Ham demonstrates this in his "Raising Godly Children in an… Continue

As PZ Myers mentions, Young Earth Creationists absolutely hate being reminded that their World-View is only Seventh Day Adventist propaganda, which originated from their leader's brain damage Hallucinations.

A friend of mine who enjoys trolling websites posted a comment back in 2012 on the Creationist Haven called BeginningAndEnd.com.
I allowed him to use my Account and Alias on this site, because I had stopped trolling it myself as I considered such site full of complete Idiots as a waste of time, since they either don't reply for weeks or they simply scrub the posts if they find them too alarming.
This site (Beginningandend.com) supports Creationism, Illuminati… Continue

I still cannot get over the interview between Richard Dawkins and Wendy Wright, published around Xmas time 2012, such stupidity and Irrationality displayed by Wendy rings sadly in my ears, I felt totally dismayed that any person leading a lobby group could be that STUPID.
I've witnessed such arrogant stupidity from general, poorly educated citizens who held basic desk and clerical jobs, many never having met nor studied science in their lives.
Every time I hear… Continue

I posted a discussion on Atheist News earlier today about the Oklahoma House Education Committee passing a Creationist bill, but it's not just evolution that the religious legislators want to eradicate from the science curriculum. It's also physical science, escpeically physical science as it pertains to things like climate change and stem cell research.
For this, Creationsts have developed a new strategy, marketing these bills as defending the "academic freedom" of students and…

Stolen from an actual conversation on Facebook between "J" an Intelligent Design proponent who thinkings evolutionary theory is not to be believed and some fellow believers in woo....
J: Why is it that young-earth creationist papers (published in creationist journals and peer-reviewed by other creationists) generally quite explicitly start off by assuming what they're trying to prove?
K: Confirmation bias.
J: Many of the… Continue

In the past decade more than 100 million people have left the Christian Church, but that has not stopped conservative religionist from trying to force their point of view into public schools. Since Texas passed its “prayer bill” in 2006, numerous “Bible Belt”… Continue

As mentioned before, the level of my religious experiences could fill many pages. So, while there is much more to be said, most is going to be skipped for now. I am just going to touch on a five main areas of why Christianity lost its hold on me.
1.The age of rocks on the Earth and the amount of time it takes for light to travel through space couldn't be rectified with text in the Bible. The best answer I received was, “God put all the things there when he created The Universe.” This… Continue

I heard about this place being planned when I was coming back home from Skepticon III In Springfield, MO a few weeks ago and just got around to finding the link. I am not sure what stages they are at but it is clear on the radio that they are moving ahead with this perversion of science.
So here is the link for The Creation Museum of The Ozarks: http://www.creationmuseumoto.org/
Share and enjoy!

Akosombo Dam, The only Hydroelectric Dam in Ghana prayed for by group of pastors so rains come down or be restored to supply the country's energy. They believe its the devil stopping the rains. so wont look for any solutions or renewable sources of energy, they get an excuse like always its the devil and satan. Ignorance once again. Continue

1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part.
However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION
, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"
? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue

When I was teaching biology in the late ‘60s, I’m trying to picture what would have happened if a colleague came up to me and asked if I were teaching the biblical account of creation. It was after all a Catholic school.
I’m trying to think of what I would have replied if my job weren’t on the line. As tennis great John McEnroe liked to yell, “You can’t be serious. You want me to teach the story of Adam and Eve and the talking snake in a science class? How about Shadrach, Meshach,… Continue

This is such a great response to a request from the Discovery Institute to debate a creationist that I had to post it here:

A Reason for Everything
Instinctively making sense of the world

Charles Darwin should be spinning in his grave: more than 40 percent of American adults still don't believe in evolution. Though Darwin's theory has been universally accepted by scientists, public resistance remains remarkably forceful. Meanwhile, creationism and intelligent design enjoy widespread public support.
UC Berkeley psychologist Tania Lombrozo is interested in why people… Continue

The 14th foundational falsehood of creationism: “Creation is evident”
In May of 2007, former child actor, Kirk Cameron and fellow advocate of idiocy, Ray Comfort, promised to scientifically prove the existence of God on national television,
“100% absolutely –without the use of faith”.
Of course that didn’t happen. Religious beliefs –as everyone knows- are assumed on faith in lieu of proof and regardless of evidence. Cameron and… Continue
