Christians Aren’t Better Than Muslims

Christians Aren’t Better Than Muslims #Christianity #Islam #evil #violence #religion #faith #atheism #atheist

CrusaderI’ve seen a lot of statements by self-professed Christians that Christianity is inherently better and “more civilized” than Islam and that Christianity would never do any of the things that extremist Islam is doing today.

Don’t you believe it.

Christianity has had a long and very bloody history where murdering the unbeliever and stealing their stuff is standard operating procedure.  Look at the…

Horror Show Sunday: Watch Those Private Prayers #SexAbuse #Christianity #religion #prayer #atheism #atheist #God

Larry DurantYeah, I know, these stories are constantly in the news and maybe that’s because the clergy is constantly guilty of them.  As much as I hate to sound like a broken record, the religious ministry, and that goes for all brands of religion, not just Christians, can’t keep their hands out of the cookie jar while they are claiming to hold the moral high ground.  Here’s yet another example.

A 59-year…

Facebook is Bugging Me

Facebook is Bugging Me #Facebook #Twitter #socialmedia

FACEBOOK sucksI hate Facebook, I have never seen a point to it, I’ve never thought it was at all useful, it doesn’t facilitate intelligent conversations and I fought having an account for a long, long, long time.  In fact, for as long as I’ve had an account, plus a page for all of my various and sundry blogs and podcasts, I don’t think I’ve done more than use it as a dumping ground for blog posts and the like.…

Domestic Abuse and Sports

Domestic Abuse and Sports #sports #NFL #DomesticAbuse #responsibility

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell And GE Chairman Jeffery Immelt Discuss "Head Health Challenge"Now I’ll be the first one to say I don’t give a damn about sports.  I don’t watch sports, I pay no attention to the teams, the players or anything else involved in any professional sport on the planet.  I consider them all vastly overpaid prima donnas.  Screw sports stars.  However, the recent move for professional sports teams to start banning players who are involved in domestic abuse cases…

Are Theists Stupid?

Are Theists Stupid? #religion #faith #atheism #stupidty #AtheistExperience #intelligence #rationality

not-sure-if-stupid-or-just-christianOn a recent Atheist Experience, they talked briefly about their disagreement with calling the religious stupid, saying that the religious can be just as smart as non-theists.  Well, yes and no.  Certainly, with regard to their theism, theists are not as smart as non-theists because they believe in irrational things. They can be bright outside of their religious beliefs, they can be geniuses in…

Americans Don’t Understand Ebola

Americans Don’t Understand Ebola #ebola #Africa #America #reality

ebolaIn a recent survey, 58% of Americanssay they favor halting any and all air travel between West Africa and the United States to stop the possibility of ebola coming to America.  Something tells me they haven’t thought through this very well, which is hardly a surprise.  The fact is, they wouldn’t have to stop just direct travel between West Africa and America, they’d have to stop any and all air…

Opinions Are Not Offensive

Opinions Are Not Offensive #tattoos #responsibility #opinions #offense

Heavily TattooedI recently had a guy run up to me at work, proud of his new tattoo and wanted to know my opinion.  Okay, I’ve said this before, I don’t like tattoos.  At all. I don’t think they look good on anyone and I find them ridiculous and childish and the current desire for people to cover their skin in permanent ink is idiotic, at least in my opinion.  So I told the guy as much, very nicely, that I wasn’t…

Horror Show Sunday: Murder, not Prayer, Works #Islam #Muslim #murder #possession #exorcism #atheism #atheist

AmeenSometimes you just want your kid to shut up.  So you pray and pray and pray and when that doesn’t work, you kill him.  Such is the case of a Muslim man in Syracuse, New York, when he thought his son was possessed.  Marcell Washington heard some strange whispers coming from his 3-year old son Ameen so he asked his religious elder what he should do and was told to take him to a mosque and read the…

Dealing With the Real Problem

Dealing With the Real Problem #minimumwage #McDonalds #automation #technology #responsibility

ronald-mcdonald-96There’s a lot of talk about raising the minimum wage and giving the lowest-income workers a “living wage”, yet nobody ever  bothers to deal with the actual reality of the situation and that is, these people simply do not deserve to make more because they’re just not worth more to their employers.  With the call for $15 an hour for fast-food workers, for instance, McDonalds is now looking into aut…

DodoYou know, I get rather sick of seeing conservationists, typically very liberal conservationists at that, whining about how man is ruining the planet and killing off species and we should all be horrified at ourselves because species are dying because of our evil machinations on the planet.  Well guess what?  That’s evolution!  Species die off every day!  New species arise to fill those ecological…

What the Hell is Wrong with Feminists? #feminism #Subway #sexism #absurdity

Halloween-costume-2There’s apparently a big bruhaha going on over a Subway commercial where women are told to stop eating burgers and presumably eat Subway so that they’ll fit into sexy Halloween costumes.  There are women out there whining about how sexist it is that they’re expected to wear sexy costumes! How dare anyone suggest that! Well, nobody is suggesting it, they’re simply acknowledging the reality, that…

If You’re Stupid and You Know It… #ghosts #woo #evidence #logic #reason #superstition

Ghost-002I think I mentioned this in passing a while back, but I don’t just debate religion, I debate all kinds of ridiculous, irrational claims. The world is full of people who believe in really asinine things for really bad reasons and so long as they get an emotional high out of it, whether their belief is actually true or not is entirely irrelevant.  The same types of views are used for gods as are…

But Blacks Can’t Be Racist!

But Blacks Can’t Be Racist! #racism #violence #liberal #conservative #PoliticalBias

racial-violenceIt’s a typical liberal claim, right up until stories like this show up, then either the liberals run away or try to make some kind of ridiculous excuse why, even though it’s painfully and clearly racist, blacks still can’t be racist.

In Brooklyn, New York, a group of 10 black teens attacked a white couplein what has been described as a racial assault.  Ronald and Alana Russo were beaten by 10…

David Scott Lemley

At least he asked first, I guess…

As much as it disgusts me to have to publish this on my birthday, here goes.  In Louisiana, the pastor at New Harmony Baptist Church in Baton Rouge was arrested on charges he raped a 20 year old developmentally disabled woman.  Oh, and he stole a car too.  But it gets worse, much worse.

The girl’s father told Lemley that he could have sex with his daughter, who…

What is “Adult”?

What is “Adult”? #adult #drugs #alcohol #pornography #tobacco #responsibility #maturity #growingup

adults_only_logoSeriously, when I hear people discussing “adult” entertainment and things they do as “adults”, I have no clue what they’re talking about because virtually everything they’re discussion sounds extremely childish to me.  When I hear people saying they’re going to go out and get drunk and get high and watch porn and sleep around and do all of this crap, I think it sounds utterly idiotic.  I grew up,…
