The God Particle, and what it has to do with God

Oh how I wish the recently demonstrated Higgs Boson, which bestows mass on particles, had never…

Homophobia, Sexual Insecurity, Religion, Cliches

Any discussion about sexuality is complicated by messy overlapping categories.  Are there people who reject all homosexuality only out of religious faith?  Certainly.  Are some of them sexually uptight?  Absolutely.  However, it can equally be said that some atheists are perverts who, out of desperation or dogmatism, will have any sort of sex with anything, and have a knee-jerk sympathy for any sort of perversion. 

The marriage debate is relatively unimportant except as a distraction…

Creationists say the funniest things....

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....

Irony abounds...

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

Religion…Enough With This S***! (…or, “You People Taking This Way Too Seriously!”), Part 1

"With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil — that takes religion."

--Steven Weinberg

As an agnostic, I have to admit that I have no way of putting myself in the cultural shoes or the socialized mindsets of individuals so obsessed with, and so fanatically devoted to their religious beliefs that they often engage in behavior which—contradictorily—turns the very precepts of their beliefs on their heads. The only…

I Smell Crapweasles

Proving the Poobah’s posts are prescient, it’s seems the threat to smite the Mormons over posthumous baptisms caused them to collapse into mint jelly and quash the practice.


After the recent string of religious recycling, the…

While Rome Burns

Nero fiddled while Rome burned. While considered only a rumor, the acrid aroma of rosin coming from the US House of Representatives is not. While the economy burns, the Republican led House is fiddling with "birth control."

As much as some men may desire it, becoming octomom is not a goal of today's woman, nor is staying barefoot and pregnant a desired state. Watching the shameful antediluvian political display of men discussing birth control for women would be laughable if not for… Continue

Religion vs Science

I figure one of the major differences between religion and science is it takes much, Much, MUCH longer for religion to admit when it's wrong.

Mormons! I Smite Thee in the Name of Common Sense

Get a Brain Mormans Theists, I appreciate your prayers for my heathen soul, but there’s no need. Really. I’m an atheist. I’m good. And Mormons, posthumous baptism is even more than one step over the line. That’s even more unneeded, creepy, and unwanted – unless you want to modify that whole…

Norm's Conceptual Corner: Divine Command Theory


Your hosts bring in reinforcements to tackle a divine view on morality. God said it, people believe it, and we’re questioning it. Does this week’s moral theory stand a prayer’s chance? What’s wrong with saying God is good? And can he draw a square triangle? Join us as we spin our wheels trying to explain Divine Command Theory in this holy edition of Norm’s Conceptual Corner, with special guest Joel…

Is This Really Necessary?

God Fearing Guy
IN GOD WE TRUST - This religious display is quite appropriate and didn't need an act of Congress to do.

A Hell of a Way to Rally People to Your Cause


Theist Board


One man’s immorality is another man’s religion, even if the immorality of that religion is pointed out by atheists. It’s common for religious adherents to sometimes act immorally – and sometimes hypocritical – despite what their religions supposedly teach. The same is true for atheists and what they believe. People…

Tax Exemptions: The Business of Religion

Disclaimer: The Omnipotent Poobah, aka Jack Koeneman, is a former Christian turned atheist. He has nothing against most theists and respects their beliefs – up to the point where they step on his.

I have dozens of theist friends. Our discussions are generally polite and lean toward the relative merits of atheist and theist beliefs, not mundane secular topics like religious tax breaks. But with the hew and cry over…
